Spooky goings on


I know it is a bit late but I have just made some Halloween cards for the shop! I had two there, and took in a third only to find one had sold of the two, so I thought I would make a few more especially when I looked in my die box and found loads of great dies to use.
I die cut the black scalloped cards with Sizzix Bigz XL small scalloped card. I had some black envelopes that fit this card perfectly. I used the Payperbox script paper and the crow from  Tim Holtz die. This card has a pumpkin sequin added.

I die cut the inserts in parchment paper and stamped Happy Halloween with a Hero Arts stamp from a clear set. The inserts done this way show a little on the outside but I think that is O.K. what do you think?

This one has the Tim Holtz scaredy cat from the same die as the crow, and a ghost from a Bigz ghost die. I had the ghosts cut out ready for a different card then thought they would work well with the cat, well something must have scared it!

This is the crow without pumpkin, I think I like it better this way.


Finally a Tim Holtz die again, candelabra and spider from the same die. I used a cream card blank and cut a square of green to mat the gold spider's web card onto, and added witch eyelets in each corner. I cut the candelabra out in black and white then cut off the white candles to add, the flame was coloured with Promarkers. I added a black sparkly paper insert with a parchment panel stamped with the same greeting as the rest and I stamped the envelope with spiders webs.

The black cards are £1.50 and the candelabra card is £2.50 available in Made in Bradford on Avon shop right now.

I have entered the following challenges:
