I love Halloween - don't know why but I do!
All I made this weekend when I had the chance were Halloween cards - here's the first one I made:
I used my new Making Memories Toil & Trouble patterned papers on the card, along with sentiments from my Spooky Sentiments set. I used one of my SU punches to punch out the "Witching you...", and the ribbon is May Arts.
The spiderweb edging and the bat were done with Martha Stewart punches. Love that bat punch!! :o)
I colored in this Fluffles stamp last year (yes I said last YEAR). I had stamped out several Halloween images and had taken them to work with me to color in when I had time between clients. I never got a chance to make any cards with the images so I saved them. And then of course I totally forgot about them and just came across them the other day when I was organizing some cardstock.
I don't even know if this particular Fluffles image is even available anymore - I was on the Stampendous site and couldn't find it :o(
I used Kooh-i-noor pencils and Gamsol (artist-grade odorless mineral spirits) to color in the image. Then when I made this card I added Stickles to bling it up again.
On the white cardstock I stamped the Fluffles image with purple ink then stamped another sentiment from the Spooky Sentiments set onto the olive cardstock before adhering it and that was it!
I forgot to add - there's a Halloween Blog Carnival going on over on Craft Critique. Y'all should check it out if you're looking for some inspiration! :o)
