Last cards for Halloween...

Here are my last cards for the Halloween season. I am on to making Thanksgiving and Christmas cards and creating the cards for my next two parties! My girls are coming home for Thanksgiving, so I've got a lot of preparing to do for that, as well. Making food lists will take me forever, no doubt!

On to the cards! I have to apologize. This little bat was a freebie download from a blog I visited and I thought I had written the creator's name down, but I can't find it anywhere. If you know who this belongs to, please drop me a line so I can give her proper credit! There were six Halloween tags like the bat, and they are just so darn adorable and fits really well within the scalloped circle Nestabilities.

The background paper is from Debbie Mumm's Harvest Stack, and the bat paper is from Paper Studio. I punched the corner of the background paper with Martha Stewart's bat punch, cut a triangle out of the bat paper, and mounted both pieces to a black card. I printed the batty on Stampin' Up! Whisper white cardstock, then cut it out with my scalloped circle Nestabilities with the Cuttlebug. I left the cutout in the die, and sponged on lime green ink around the edges. I adhered that piece to black glittered cardstock, then tied a ribbon around the card. I added my batty piece with pop dots and finished it with lime green rhinestones. Card size: 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches.

For this next Halloween card, I used the same technique as my previous cut out cards. You can find basic directions on this post. All stamps used are from Stampscapes and inks used are by Memento.

This cutie of a card was sent to my sister, Robin, who giggled when she saw it! The ghost/pumpkin was a freebie by Nina May. I colored the image with Copic markers, then cut it out with the large scalloped rectangle Nestabilities. I left it in the die and sponged purple ink on the edges, stamped it with a swirly spider stamp (Inkadinkado) then mounted it to black cardstock. I used the Swirls folder on my background purple cardstock after punching the corners. I adhered my designer papers (The Paper Studio) to my purple panel, added ribbon and my ghost image, then mounted it to an orange card. I finished it off with rhinestones in the corner. Card size: 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches

  1. Cool Halloween cards, Darsie, especially the tombstone one. Sandy H brought it to our attention.
