Thurston the Vampire is Too Cute to Spook!

Hi there! Here's another card I made for my Guest Designer spot at All That Scraps. This cute little vampire's name is Thurston the Vampire and he is ready for trick-or-treating or a fun Halloween party! He's one of the new stamps in the C.C. Designs Sweet November collection at All That Scraps! The sentiment is new too...it's part of the Amy R. Stamps Ghostly Greetings set!

I like to keep my boyish cards simple, so I colored Thurston with my Copics and layered him up with some fun black and white polka-dotted paper and red cardstock to match! I added a gem flourish, some red tulle peeking out from behind his cape and a few more gems I found in my stash!

I had quite a mishap when I was finishing up this card. I decided to just touch up a corner near the hair on the forehead and my black Copic dripped a huge blob onto his forehead. Now, at this point, I could have started all over, but I decided to try a few things first to save it...from blending solution to my white paint pen...well, it worked and Thurston was saved from the garbage can!

Stop by the All That Scraps Blog to see more fun inspiration using the new September Release Stamps!

  1. I hate when those blobby drips happen! Glad you were able to save it! Fun card, so striking with the red, white and black combo!

  2. Pattie, I love your card and that little Thurston is just fabulous. His hair is great, and I am so happy that you were able to save him!


  3. Adorable little guy, :) Lori m

  4. This is so cute, fantastic save, Pattie! In December when I was the guest DT for ATS, my daughter spilled an entire glass of chocolate milk all over my first card the day before it was due, just as I was about to photograph it, so I feel your pain! LOL


I love to get comments! Thank you for taking the time to share some love!!!
