This week on Create with Connie and Mary, we've been focusing on the Dark and Dreary stamp set, Midnight Musings Jumbo Wheel and the Spooky Nights Rub-ons from the Holiday Mini.

I used the Dark and Dreary stamp set and the Midnight Musings Jumbo Wheel on my card for week 1's sketch.

Here is what I came up with, a Sweet and Spooky Halloween card! I call it Sweet and Spooky because it has a "spooky" image and a "sweet"little bow! The colors I used were Basic Black, Basic Grey and Very Vanilla. I had a lot of fun with the sketch!

I stamped the candle image from the Dark and Dreary stamp set onto Very Vanilla card stock using Black StazOn and then used my blender pens to get a little color and color it in very lightly. The sentiment comes from the stamp set Teeny Tiny Wishes and was popped up using dimensionals.

I wheeled the Midnight Musings Jumbo Wheel using Basic Black ink onto the Basic Grey card stock and then used the So Saffron Stampin' Write marker to highlight the words a bit. The bow is 5/8" Basic Black Grosgrain ribbon.

I mounted the Basic Black panel on the the Very Vanilla card stock base and it was done!

Thanks for looking!

I hope you decide to join us over at the Create with Connie and Mary Holiday Edition...if you haven't already!
