Stamping for Halloween

6 Comments

The weather turned cooler and there was a bit of time to play so I sat down at my work table to make some cards.  I have a bunch of Halloween ribbons, and stamps, and it is time to do a few of those. The inspiration for these came from the Stampin’ Up catalog. I used the stamps I had, mostly Stampin’ Up brand, but also others I got at Michaels, Big Lots and a dollar store. The print papers are Stampin’ Up.

One thing I found as I was struggling to find my deckle edge tearing bar is creativity is stifled when the environment is cluttered.  And my work table was a mess.  So, I cleared it up a bit, and found that my glue stick was dry. So I started by doing some of the elements before I went out to a meeting and could pick up more glue sticks. I have a roller with a spider web motif, so I rolled rows of spider webs in chocolate on ecru paper.

Half I used as a card base, and the other I ripped with my deckle edge tearing ruler.

I added ribbons from Michaels, and glued accents over them.

I used the half piece folded for the next card. I added ribbon, a green accent, and an orange rectangle with these characters riding a broomstick.

Here is the inside for this card, cute saying!

Next up, a card for the boss. She is a fan of Wizard Of Oz, once showing up to our office costume day as Dorothy. This one seemed perfect for her. Texture stamp on the base card, witch boots and hat, on a layered frame.

Here is the wording I chose for the inside.  I added the bats for a little extra interest.

Here is another one, simple ribbon and frame with a motif. It is hard to see, but I put little black cats around the Eek!

Here is the inside of this one.

I stamp the back of my cards too, with this stamp. No, it isn’t a Hallmark, it’s better!! I made it.

My mother in law is fond of putting confetti inside cards to fall out when they are opened. I just happened to have some with jack-o-lantern faces, black cats and gold stars.

I made these cards last year.  I thought you’d like to see a few more for inspiration.

Now, maybe I can get them mailed on time, and actually get one to my cousin before she sends one to me this year!
