Halloween Fun

Happy Tuesday All!

So did you have a nice weekend? As always ours went by super fast. We didn't do too much, cleaned up around the house and hit Ikea for some organizational stuff for my stamp room and my son's bedroom. Then spent Sunday cleaning his room. It's amazing the stuff kids can accumulate. Needless to say he doesn't have as much stuff anymore!

I was busy this morning with work and getting orders in the mail, but I did have some time this afternoon to stamp a bit. I haven't stamped in days so it was nice to take the break and get crafty! I've created 2 cards for Halloween, both using digital stamps available at Whimsy!

The first one uses 2 new images from Meljen's Designs. The main image is the Country Star Pumpkin and then I cut out and popped up the cute Scaredy Cat image. I also added in one of Ann's Halloween Tickets, also available from our digital collection. 

I've used some old designer paper, not sure who makes this one with some black and purple card stock. Then used the layout from Friday Sketchers and framed my image with Circle Nesties. Both images were colored with Copics. The card was embellished with ribbons and flowers with pearl centers.

This card fits the challenges at:
Cupcake Craft: Spooky Creatures
Everybody Art: Halloween
Double Dutch: Boo to You
Meljen's Designs: Halloweeny

Next I have a card using a new digi from our artist Katie of Big Hug Creations. Katie has some fun and quirky images available in her collection and I just think this Witch's Broom is hilarious! I also added in some more of Ann's Halloween Tickets.

The papers on this card are BG Eerie and I've used the layout from Stamp with Fun. The image was colored with Copics and then sprayed with Glimmer Mist. I've embellished with flowers and sticky pearls.

This card fits at:
Papertake Weekly: 3 of a kind
Paper Romance: Halloween
Fussy and Fancy: Halloween
