Halloween Cards

Dawn bought a set of the cutest Halloween stamps I ever did see, and, of course, I had to get my grubby little hands on them first. I love this little witch so much! I used colored pencils and markers to doll them up then fussy-cut them and applied them with pop-dots. I stamped more little pumpkins and used Glossy Accents on them then popped them up as well.

I used both sides of the same paper for the card, added the sparkly candy piece and stamped "Trick or Treat" on it. The tiny spider is a sticker. They were a lot of fun to make.

I was going to make my second batch of Halloween cards like this, but there was more to it than I first thought. Whoever gets this one will be receiving a one-of-a-kind. I made more with this adorable little stamp and will upload images of those later.

I stamped extra pumpkins and applied Glossy Accents, let them dry, cut them out and then popped them up with foam pop-dots along the strip and in her little hand. I stamped again and colored her costume and fussy-cut it so I could pop that up as well. Of course, everything is edged with ink to finish it off.

I love this little girl so much, I gave her tiny red Swarovski crystals in her ponytails. I kept the inside simple by using white ink to stamp a tiny Boo! I can just see her saying that in a squeaky little voice when the doors she knocks on are opened.

I made a few more cards, this time using a die-cut that sort of mimics her little pumpkin self. I stood her in a tuft of grass, which was cut from a strand of stickers I’ve had forever.

I popped up the pumpkins again with pop-dots and added tiny little flower beads to her ponytails.

You can’t really see it in the photos, but the eyes, nose and mouth of the big pumpkin sparkles as does her collar, hair and dots on her tights.

Again I made the inside simple only this time I embossed the word Boo! instead of stamping it with wh white ink.

 I love this little girl as well, she's so stinkin' adorable!

I believe I'm done with Halloween cards, but I'm thinking about doing a few for Thanksgiving. Then there's Christmas, and if it takes me as long to do those as it did these, I better get going right now!
