Final Halloween Cards for OWH 2013

I'd like to share the last three Halloween cards I made for Operation Write Home to send before this years deadline of 8-31.

Now I will be concentrating on Thanksgiving cards before the September deadline hits.

For todays first card I used sketch #160 from OWH:

For my version of the sketch I went for some darling papers, chipboard and stickers in Cosmo Crickets Nevermore collection.

Supplies used: card stock - orange, black, tan; patterned papers from Nevermore by Cosmo Cricket; chipboard and stickers in Nevermore by Cosmo Cricket; stamp - Craft Smart; ink Tuxedo Black by memento; twine and button - my stash; Pop Dots

For card #2 today I used sketch #161 from OWH:

For my card I changed the oval shape to a rectangle and used some of my Spellbinder dies and a darling sticker by Reminisce as the focal point of my card. 

Supplies used: card stock - black, vanilla, orange; patterned papers - Bubble, Bubble, Toil & Trouble and Pick Of The Patch in Halloween by Reminisce; stickers - Halloween by Reminisce; Dies - Curved Rectangles, A2Matting Basics A and A2 matting Basics B Nestabilities by Spellbinder; brads - Kaiser Craft; Pop Dots.

And the last card for today uses Sketch #162 by OWH:

For my card I used a Silhouette Studio cut file to cut out the cauldron and stamps from Wicked Cool by Stampin' Up.

I wanted it to look like she tumbled into the cauldron so I added the lines by the hat to give it the feel of spinning as it fell off of her head.

Supplies used: card stock - recycled white, green, black; patterned papers are both scraps from my stash; stamps - Wicked Cool by Stampin' Up; ink - Tuxedo Black by Memento; Copic marker; 1/2" circle punch - EK Success; clip - Making Memories; Pop Dots
