Last Halloween Card

I guess I was on a roll today. Here's my last Halloween card. I stamped the clothesline from Heartfelt Mix in Basic Gray on Vanilla. Then I hung the four images from Spooky Bingo Bits. I added some Howlstooth & Scaringbone DSP to the left side, a little strip of pinked edge in Tangerine Tango and a piece of black ribbon.  The sentiment from Primitive Pumpkins was cut with a fishtail tag die and matted on a piece of black. A black brad and a piece of Baker's twine completed this and it was popped up on dimensionals.  This card is also good for the colourQ challenge this week.  Thanks for checking out my Halloween cards!

2nd Halloween Card Today

Amazing!  I got a 2nd card made and I didn't even case anyone. It is for 2 more challenges.  Retrosketches RS#34 and the colourQ challenge cQc#160.  OK, here's the card.

This time I used the smaller pocket stamp from Wplus9 A Pocketful.  I must have given my Kiwi Kiss to one of my daughter's so I used Lucky Limeade instead. The cute little spiders jumping out of the pocket are from the Pocketful: Halloween set.  I used my Sakura Stardust gelly roll pen on the spiders to give them some added pizzazz.  From there this card turned into one of those where you tinker and tinker until you finally like it.  I just kept adding little strips of paper and I think that I like the result. The black strip on the right is from the SU's Neutrals DSP pack, then comes a strip of Tangerine Tango. On the left I die cut the scallops from Rich Razzleberry DSP, then there's a strip of black and finally a strip of Lucky Limeade. I tied some Baker's twine around and added a tag which is a PTI die cut from the Tiny Tags set and the Boo sentiment is from the SU Tiny Tags set.  

Closeup - Can you see the spidery shimmer?

Now check out the inside. 

The sentiment and little spider webs are from the MFT set Primitive Pumpkins.

1st Halloween Card

Well I'm finally getting to my Halloween cards. This is the first and I hope that I have more to come.  I get to play with new stuff and also meet a couple of challenges -  Dynamic Duos DD#25  color challenge including the dessert option of using a die and also the Pals Paper Arts PP145 sketch challenge.

I die cut the pocket and stamped it in Pumpkin Pie. Then I stamped the bats and embossed them with clear embossing powder. You can't really see it in the picture but it does help pop them out on the card. Then I adhered the pocket with dimensionals. The sentiment from A Pocketful: Halloween was punched out, spritzed with pumpkin pie ink and then also popped with dimensionals.   I used my new Die-Namics Fishtail Flag Stax to cut the flag out of the Black DSP and then backed that with the PP DSP.  It's all on a black card base.  Check back as I hope to have some more Halloween cards soon :-)
