Purple monster pumpkin Halloween card

Purple 2 Cute Ink monster pumpkin Halloween card, by Paperesse.

This digi reminds me of the song The Purple People Eater ('one eyed, one horned, flying purple people eater' . . . remember that?). We had a Halloween album when I was a kid (yeah, vinyl) with all sorts of spooky songs and that was on it. I probably just really dated myself big time by mentioning that, didn't I?

So, moving right along . . . this 2 Cute Ink Monster Pumpkin stamp from the September club release, couldn't be any other color than purple.

He's paired up with Tactile Design Spooky digital paper. I used Toga's polaroid die to frame him. This is a great little die. It's all one piece and comes with the polaroid, a banner, heart, arrow and label. I use it often, as on this Christmas card (I don't know if Toga – a French company – is sold outside of Europe, though). The sentiment was generated with my new favorite font, Channel. If you're wondering how to get that fab curl at the end of 'Halloween', see this post's crafty tip.
