Instead of a theme this month, we are sharing our Convention or Holiday Catalog Swaps with you. I decided to showcase a brand new stamp set, Halloween Bash, from the upcoming Holiday Catalog. The catalog launches on August 1st and there are so many fun Halloween-themed products, including new Washi Tape! You're gonna love it!
Here is the card I made, using this set, for the Control Freaks Fall Swap.

I used a black Sharpie marker to color in the rhinestones and make them black! It was so easy; and a fun way to add spooky pizazz to your project!
