Halloween Cards

Happy Wednesday!!

I hope you are having a great week and perhaps getting some crafty time in.

I'm stopping in today to share a few Halloween Cards with you.

The first is really fairly simple. A kraft card stock base with some machine stitching around the edges. Some skeletons stamped on white card stock and fussy cut, then attached to the card base with pop dots.

Supplies used: card stock - white, kraft; stamps - Halloween Mono Assortment by Inkadinkadoo; ink - Tuxedo Black by Memento; Sewing Machine; Pop Dots

The second card I created around a bingo card I printed and cut from a Silhouette Studio cut file. I tied some twine around it with a cute little spider button I had in my stash. The rosette is made with a Tim Holtz die and I attached a sentiment die by Authentique on top of it. The bat doily it is all placed over is also a Silhouette Studio cut file.

Supplies used: card stock - black, orange, tan; patterned papers - Afterglow in Glowing by Authentique and Under Your Spell in The Apothecary Emporium by Echo Park; Silhouette Studio cut files; ink - black by ColorBox; rosette die by Tim Holtz; sentiment die by Authentique; button - Doodlebug; twine - Orange Licorice by trendy Twine; Copic marker; sewing machine.

For the last card I based mine on a card which I found in one of my Cards magazines. I used some papers and stickers in the Apothecary Emporium by Echo Park and I used the little bats that were cut out to make the doily in the previous card. It was double sided paper so I just used the reverse side. 

A few little rhinestones for some sparkle.

Supplies used: card stock - black; patterned paper - Under Your Spell in The Apothecary Emporium by Echo Park; stickers - Under Your Spell in The Apothecary Emporium by Echo Park; Silhouette Studio cut file; rhinestones - Kaiser Craft.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!!

Your cards are so well done. The colors and embellishments and the ways you used them take each card out of the ordinary.
