Halloween Fun

Hi Everyone!

I have more Halloween cards to share with you today. I didn’t use any special techniques on them, but hope that the photographs will trigger some ideas for you. I’ll quickly fill you in on the materials I used.

Over the past few months I’ve used Impression Obsession’s "Enjoy the Sweet Things in Life" stamp on cards with strawberries, cherries, summer drinks, ice cream, cakes, and cupcakes. It’s also a great stamp to use with Halloween candy and other treats. I used a pumpkin nestability to help me create the pumpkin that has the "sweet things" message on it. The candy corn border is from that same package of borders that I used on yesterday’s cards. The candy apple and piece of wrapped candy are Recollections stickers.

"Happy Halloween" and "Trick or Treat" were stamped with Northwoods wooden stamps.

I used a Sizzix picket fence die to create the fences. The pumpkins and Dracula were cut from some K and Company Halloween paper. The witch that is flying across the moon was punched from a Martha Stewart paper punch. The other embellishments are mostly Recollections stickers.

I’ve been having so much fun creating Halloween cards this year. I just lay out my supplies on the table and play. Try it!

Have a great night!
