Smell My Feet!

I think I'm overstimulated... can't decide which new stamps to play with first! After waiting for almost a month, I finally got my Stamping Bella stamps. I also got my Elzybells and new Greeting Farm Stamps all within 48 hours! So you already saw my Elzybells bear stamp... here's one of my new Greeting Farm stamps! I couldn't wait for Island Scrapbooking to get their shipment in of these cute little monsters. The only one not featured here is the mummy since I used him on another card.
To give you a little background info on this card... after my class on Saturday, Tracy and I were discussing what other stamps/dies would look cute hanging from the tri-shutter card. We identified several cool ideas- which I know I'll get to some day, but for now... this is the one I thought was the coolest! Isn't it so cool that Dracula is suspended in mid air?
At first I tried to use the sentiments that came with the set but after I stamped and mounted them on cardstock, it hit me that I NEEDED to use the Trick or Treat, Smell My Feet chant that kids still use till this day. Aaahhh, takes me back to those days in elementary school when Halloween was all about trick or treating. So I decided to print out the words from my computer and incorporate them into my card.
My daughter sure got a kick out of the words and started happily chanting them herself.
Supplies used:
Cardstock- Bazzil
Embossing folders- Cuttlebug
Spooktacular stamp set- The Greeting Farm
Markers- Copics
Stickles

I think the colors for this card are awesome and the saying rocks!!! What a fun card. And yes I love dracula hanging. I hope to make one of these cards this weekend. I've seen all the ones you have made and everytime I say, "I have to make that!" Have a great Friday!
