I love Halloween and all of the fun and spooky stuff that is out there. Working at Archivers I get a chance to see all of the new products and great Halloween lines that are coming in. I couldn't wait to play so here are a few of my first Halloween creations for this year.
The other thing I love is mixing and matching all of my stuff to create my own designs. This first card is a perfect example of that. This is going to be my October Homepage contest card for the bellaholics group.
I used the Three Trees set from SU for the trees and the leaves.The bat is from a Stampendous Halloween set. The fence and the cat are Martha Stewart punches. I added Witchybella from http://www.stampingbella.com/. Her dress is covered in black flock from doodlebug and copper stickles.I even used glossy accents on the pumpkin for tha 3D effect. This really was a conglomeration (sp?) of materials but I love how she came out.
This one I did using my new haunted house cuttlebug embossing folder. I love all of the new holiday designs. I used a navy cardstock the added color to the windows, trim and moon with souffle pens. Witchybella was the final touch on this spooky scene.
Next on to another Halloween card I made as a Make and Take for mania last night at Archivers. I love hosting mania because I get to create my own make and take projects.The pic isn't the best but I love this card anyway. The BG paper is Bo Bunny and the stamp is from Inkadinkado. The bat is flocked and then I added black and orange stickles to the flourishes.
Finally I did a Halloween page using the K& Company Halloween Whimsy line and round stickers from Archiver's Yours Truly stationary line to make 3D pumpkins. The large picture is one of my favorites of my daughter growing up. She is just turning three in the pic and she will turn 21 this October. Am I that far behind? Not really, but this was made for a sample at the store so it was a great way to reuse and old favorite pic. Thanks for looking.
