Cookie Cutter Halloween Banners For You Mr & Mrs Scarecrow Anniversary

This card was my first idea for the Stamp Share swap, but I decided it was too much coloring, especially since I was making them hours before the swap! I wanted to use the Cookie Cutter Halloween stamp set, but not have it be Halloween. So here are Mr. & Mrs. Scarecrow, celebrating an Anniversary!

Colors: Dapper Denim, Delightful Dijon, Flirty Flamingo, Pink Pirouette, Real Red, So Saffron, Soft Sky, Whisper White

I tried a few punches to see if I could modify them for the skirt, but ended up making it free hand. Then I took a Basic Black marker and made lines along the edges so it would look like the rest of the image. And if you look closely at her makeup you'll see why I rarely wear any!

Last night was our monthly Stamp Share. We have such an awesome group! And it's so much fun to get together every month and talk stamping! As usual, we had a swap. This is my card that I made:

Different color shirt and Washi Tape pattern:

Colors: Basic Black, Old Olive, Perfect Plum, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White

Did you notice the bats on the Washi Tape? They're silver foil, so they really catch and reflect the light!

...and an alternate version that is turned:
