Welcome to DAY FIVE of the 2014 Impression Obsession Fall/Winter Release Blog Hop!
The more blogs you visit and comment on each day… the better chance you will have to win a $25 Impression Obsession Gift Certificate!!! The hop will start each day with a list of participants on the Impression Obsession Blog at 6am EST. Each day one of the IO designer blogs will be chosen randomly and a winner will be selected from comments on that blog at 10pm CT. The winner will be announced the following day along with the participating blogs for that day on the Impression Obsession Blog. So….if you miss a day or time deadline your comments will still count for a chance to win a $25 Impression Obsession Gift Certificate! Two prizes will be awarded on the last day of the hop. One will be for Friday’s comments and another will be chosen from all the comments left throughout the week. Both Friday winners will be announced on the IO Blog on Saturday, August 2nd. All of the new stamps you'll be seeing on the hop are available NOW!

I thought I'd finish off the hop with a fun and EASY Halloween card. I used stamps from two new clear Halloween sets: Is the Moon out Tonight and Creepy. I added a little scalloped edge along the side of the card using Border Die Duo 2. Of course I manged to work my two "standards" in... piercing and a bow!
I stamped the verse multiple times from the Creepy set. I sponged a little black around the edges and added a 1/16" Border mat using my Perfect Layer Rulers. After adding the mat then I cut out a circle using my nesties. I used a hard bristle brush to add a little messy Copic Opaque White paint.
My sentiment is popped up on the white layer behind the verse panel, leaving a little recessed area in between the circles. The corner had just enough room for a little die cut black cat!
Here's the inside... of course every halloween needs a little spider! I added the Fancy Cut Out Border Die along the side. I made a little banner from the Boo sentiment.
