JFF Design Team · JFF Monthly Challenge

These are the Ghoul Times!

My boss shared this Far Side cartoon with me many years ago and it makes me laugh every time I see it!


Today starts a new monthly challenge on the JFF Rubber Stamps blog and the theme is Halloween!


I needed a little creativity jump start and used the September 2018 card sketch from the card sketch challenge in the Club Scrap Chat group on Facebook.

September 2018 CS Card sketch

CIC455 and JFF October 2018 005E

I used two different Halloween stamps from JFF Stamps to create my design. I randomly stamped the Tiny Black Kat  onto a strip of Club Scrap black print card stock with Versamark ink and heat embossed with copper foil embossing powder.


My Tim Holtz stamping platform came in handy again with the Crooked Old Tree silhouette stamp and Black Soot Distress Oxide ink. I always avoided silhouette or detailed stamps until I started using the platform. I had to stamp both images a few times to get a full imprint, but they turned out perfect! I added some googly eyes to the tree and some puffy sticker letters for my sentiment.

  3. I love The Far Side, there are many cartoons I will never forgot for their brilliance (like the sheep waiting around at a party for the Border Collie to show up and bring some order to it!) . What a fun card with the eyes you created!
