Earlier this summer I treated myself to some adorable Denami Design Halloween stamps. I decided they’d be perfect to use for today’s mini card challenge. They all work together beautifully so there’s potential for tons of fun mini cards.

I cut a piece of SEI patterned paper so that it measured 3.25" wide by 6.5" long and scored and folded it at 3.25" to create a square mini card. Then I stamped and fussy cut 3 bats, one spider and 5 mini pumpkins. I used the face from the Halloween stamp set to stamp faces onto the pumpkins. The fence was created from a Martha Stewart picket fence punch and I used a 1.5" circle paper punch to cut the moon. The spider and pumpkins 2 and 4 are attached to the card with foam circles. Only the bats bodies are adhered to the card. I creased their wings and pulled them forward so that it looks as if the bats are flying through the night sky.







I stamped and fussy cut 2 ghosts, the 3 houses stamp, and a mini pumpkin for this card. I stamped "Boo" from the Halloween stamp set and cut it to make it look like a word balloon. The pumpkin is attached to the card with a foam circle.
This time I cut some SEI ghost paper so that it measured 3.25" x 5.5" and scored and folded at 2.75" to create a rectangular mini card. After I stamped 3 ghosts I deliberately placed two of them so it looked as they were floating off the card. The pumpkin is attached with a foam circle.
Please leave a comment on this post before you move along to Nicki Scheck's blog at http://idreamcreateinspire.blogspot.com

You may want to become a follower of my blog so you’ll know about the other mini Halloween cards I’ll be creating and other cards I plan to share.

Have a great day!
