Halloween Day 2

Hi Everyone!

Another hot and humid day. I think this has been the most humid summer in years. I'd wish it were Fall except that would mean Winter was on its way. As much as I dislike humidity I am even less fond of snow and ice.

Today’s cards are all easy to create. Just study the photographs of my cards and then use Halloween paper from your stash to create cards of your own.

The images on this first card were cut from a 12" x 12" paper stack of Debbie Mumm paper. Basically I cut the images and glued them to a sheet of orange layering paper. Then I put the paper in the Cuttlebug "Tiny Bubbles" embossing folder and ran it through my Cuttlebug. I think that folder makes the paper look as if it is quilted. I also feel that the images are now anchored firmly to the layering paper.

I used parts of 2 papers from a K and Company Halloween 12" x 12" paper stack to create this card. There is a page in that stack that is completed filled with jack o’lanterns. I fussy cut some of them and glued them to a sheet of purple sky tag. I put the paper in a Cuttlebug spider web embossing folder and ran it through my Cuttlebug. The purple tag had a white core so when I embossed it some of the tag cracked and the white core showed through the card. I don’t like that look so I put some tiny bats on some of the larger "white cracks". Tip: I used a Picksey Pick-up to pick up each bat, swiped it across the top of a wide tip glue pen, and then glued it to the card. The "spooky" message was created with Maya Road Rubons.

These last 2 cards have the same blueprint. If you have been following my blog you know it’s a blueprint that I use often. I traced over the spider webs with a Pinpoint Roller Quickie Glue pen and then sprinkled fine white glitter over the glue. I tapped off the excess glitter and was left with sparkling spider webs. I like those glue pens. The barrel on them is clear so it’s easy to see how much glue is left inside the pen. The pens don’t clog either so they are easy to use.

The spiders are "Favorite Findings". The pumpkin on the first card was cut from a medium pumpkin Nestability. "Trick or Treat" was stamped from a Northwoods wooden stamp. The pumpkin on the second card was stamped with a Recollections wooden stamp.

Stop by again tomorrow to see the Halloween cards that I am going to create tonight!
