Trick or treat...

Hey there friends! 

It's my turn to post on the TGF blog and I've got a fun Halloween card to share. It's no secret that I'm fond of altering and mixing things up on my stamps to make them work for many different types of cards. So when I saw this great Halloween under the sea post by Maria I was totally inspired to borrow elements from the new Peek a Boo set and change up my own Halloween characters. I wanted an entire mob of little trick or treaters for my card and to create that I first printed out the Hallo Hero, Hallo Heroine and Hallo Bean digital stamps to the same small scale as the Mega Mini Amazing girls. Hero and Heroine I used as is but I borrowed Hallo Bean's witch hat and kitty so that I could instead dress up the pig-tailed cutie from the Mega Mini Amazing set. The mummy is an old favorite from the retired Spooktacular set and he fit right in with the rest of the kiddos... gotta love that small size. Then I just stamped up the pirate ghost and witch ghost from the Peek a Boo set and continued to dress up my girls. The short haired Mega Mini got the pirate hat, eye patch and hook while I snagged the broom to add to the witch and complete her costume. All together they look ready to travel up and down the streets of their neighborhood trick or treating until every last candy bag is full. This is why I love altering stamps so much, LOL!   :)

Stay crafty my friends!

super smart to use some digital elements to make halloween stuff. That card is just so much fun! I think I would frame it for decor since it looks like a lot of work. :)
