Happy Halloween!

I loved the Lawn Fawn shaker card so much I had to make the Mama Elephant version:

This is my first time using seedless preserves distress ink – I love it! It looks so beautiful when blended with picked raspberry distress ink.

Instead of using gold enamel dots I ended up flicking the Heidi Swapp color spray onto the front of the card.  I love how the gold circles are different sizes! Wishing you a spooky Halloween!

 

Distressing Halloween!

How that I have stayed away from distress inks for months just baffles me! I forget how much I love them!

I love the richness of color that distress inks add to the background.  Again, I am back with my crazy gold thread and am loving it!

I added some white enamel dots to the cloud background and it gives it a nice pop of dimension.

Aren’t these little Halloween critters adorable? Love them.

Monster Hugs Being Sent Your Way!

Sometimes you need a hug…even if it is from (cute) monsters!

I am so glad I bought this stamp set before it was sold out on lawn fawn. It is way too cute to pass up for Halloween!  I colored the little monsters to match the cool starry background. I luckily found some star bling in my stash.

I like that this card screams happy! Umm….scary and happy – perfect for Halloween!

You Are Boo-Tastic!

This year I decided to start early on my Halloween Cards.

For seasonal cards, I find it easiest when  I pull out all my supplies that way everything is at my fingertips.

Last year I bought most of these supplies and did not get a chance to use it! So glad I saved all my goodies.

Here is my original card but I decided it needed more dimension and depth so I popped everything up and added some clear cardstock for the circle window.

Hopefully, I will have a ton of Halloween cards to share in the next few weeks! Have a wonderful labor day!

Happy Halloween!

It’s not too early to start on Halloween cards right?

I am in love with these stamps from whipper snapper designs!
