The Rubber Cafe Spooky Bat Motel & Where's My Treat Labrador


This Bat Motel from The Rubber Cafe is a fun one to color. I colored this one with copics and spica glitter pens; black so it looked spookier with the yellow glow from the windows! I cut it out and mounted it on some dark blue glitter cardstock. The tags are actually tombsones cut from American Craft's Halloween Collection; Undead. I decided they looked like tags, so used them to frame my other images. Charming and the kitty come from the Charming Kitty set. The jack-o-lantern comes from the Trick-or-Treat set. The skeleton is called You Shake My Bones. This is actually a christmas ornament I picked up at Michael's and sprayed black. I glittered the edges in black and tied the tags on with embroidery floss. I left tails....to look more spider webby!


This card features the shaving cream technique for the sentiment panel. I used the Classic Happy Halloween for my sentiment, and the You Need To Dust spider web, Where's My Treat Labrador and some candy from Halloween Candy. Designer paper is from Imaginisce's Hallowhimsy Collection. The candy is covered with Glossy Accents.

Be sure to check out The Rubber Cafe's Blog to see lots of other inspiration using these stamps!

Love the motel! So cool! And the card is so fun - just like my lab - always wanting more. LOL! Love the bling (or are they brads) along the bottom of the card!
