Halloween is my favorite holiday. Don't get me wrong, I am not into the gory stuff, just like a little bit of scary and some fun too. I decorate my whole house for Halloween and throw an annual bash.
I even go so far as putting a skeleton in the bed in my guest bedroom. He's life size, with a night cap on, a bed tray in front of him and he's holding a cup of coffee.
Anyway, I also get the most fun out of making Halloween cards and I'd like to share a couple with you today.
The first uses some darling Halloween papers by My Minds Eye and a cute stamp by Imaginisce.
I stamped the skeleton on patterned paper, fussy cut a little bow and popped a rhinestone on it.
Supplies used: card stock - black, orange; patterned papers - Costumes, Neighborhood, Big Dots, Halloween Words and Pumpkins in Blackbird by My Minds Eye; stamp Skull Snag 'em by Imaginisce; ink - Tuxedo Black by Memento; scalloped circle and circle punches by Stampin' Up; border punches - Fiskars and Martha Stewart; word stickers - Authentique; rhinestone - Kaiser Kraft; brads - Making Memories.
For my second card I had some fun with papers and stamps by American Crafts.
I added a little bit of Black Diamond Stickles to the tops of the clouds.
I noticed, after I took the picture, how different the cloud I stamped on white card stock is. Note to self - next time stamp it on the same patterned paper as the background!!! Oh well!!!
