Pumpkin Fun

I really got into the Jar of Haunts pumpkin and I made two cute cards:

I used the blender pens to shade in the pumpkin. I think it adds dimension and interest. I added the little spider for a bit of spook! I think, depending on the sentiment, either one could be Halloween, Thanksgiving, or a Fall card. Hope you like them. Enjoy your last couple days of October!

Halloween Washi

I really like the Halloween Themed washi tape that Stampin' Up came out with this year! Especially the shiny bats! This is a really simple card and I used the stamps from the September Paper Pumpkin kit too!

Hope you like it!

The countdown to Halloween continues! Here is another card I made using the Spooky Fun set. I really wanted to come up with something that used the ghosts and gravestones. I think it turned out pretty cute.

I used the embossing folder just on the top to make it a night sky. Hope you like it!

WWYS #85 Challenge Spooky Fun

I love the Spooky Fun stamp set by Stampin' Up and I have made a bunch of cards with it. So of course I had to enter this week's What Would You Stamp Challenge #85.

This is actually one of my favorites! Simple and cute.

Cross your fingers for me and have a great day!

Paper Pumpkin September 2016

The Paper Pumpkin journey continues!

This kit was getting you ready for fall and halloween so of course I was super excited to open it! The original plan is to make little candy tube with tags. Cute idea, but I was not thrilled with the tags as most of it was already printed. There was very little stamping options.

Now let me tell you what I love ... the pumpkin stamp! It is so cute!! It is a layering stamp so it takes a couple stamps to make one pumpkin, but I'm in love. I think the the whole box is worth it just for the little pumpkin!

Anyway, this is what I came up with:

Apparently I had a theme going! I hope you like the cards and have a great day!

I really, really love the new stamp set Ghoulish Grunge and it is the basis for the What Would You Stamp Challenge #84.

It is very versatile and can be used as a really good background stamp. Here is what I came up with (Halloween themed, of course).

Hubby said this was his favorite :) Hope they do too at the challenge!

Trick or Treat - PP #315 Challenge

The challenge today is from The Paper Players #315. Here is the sketch:

This is a theme challenge. Since Halloween is the best theme, I had to submit! So, I came up with this fun card. The washi tape from Stampin' Up is so cute this year so I made it stand out in this card.

The bats are not upside down, they are just flying that direction :P

Hope you enjoy and are getting in the spooky spirit like me!
