Spooky Fun Halloween

Halloween is quickly approaching.  Do you decorate and create fun treats for Halloween?  I think it varies from year to year what I do.  When the kids were little we made costumes and decorations and lots of treats.  Now the kids are older and I don’t do as much for Halloween.  But I do love a lot of our stamps and accessories for Halloween – so making cards and treats are still on my list.  I’ll be mailing things out to my boys and their friends.

Today I’m sharing a fun card I created for my stamp club.  It’s one that kind of grew as I worked on it.  I started and then kept adding little elements to it.

I started with the Halloween Scenes Edgelits and Spooky Fun stamp sets – they even come together as a bundle in the Holiday catalog!  One question that I get asked is about these dies – note that they are called Edgelits (not thinlits or framelits).  The difference is these are designed to cut an edge – so you start with a piece of card stock the width of the die and then the height can vary based on what you want – it will only cut the edge of however tall your piece is.  This is the tree and the fence in this set – both just cut the edge – so the bottom is not cut.  The rest of the dies are little framelits meant to go around the stamped images in the stamp set.  They “frame” the image.  And while we are on the subject – Thinlits are detailed dies that coordinate with stamps and other dies but don’t necessarily “frame” or outline anything – they are meant to compliment other dies and stamps not cut them out.

I used the Ghoulish Grunge stamp set for the brick wall image in the back ground.  The bottom is the Halloween Night Specialty Designer Paper and the Halloween Night Baker’s Twine – I love that twine.

In the corner I stamped the moon image and then sponged it with a little bit of Pumpkin Pie ink.  Then the little die cut witch is on a dimensional in front of it.

It turned out to be a fun Halloween card – now who should I mail it too?

Thanks for visiting.
