I love Halloween - it's probably my second favorite holidayof the year. Because of that, I have lots and lots of Halloween-themed papers (in fact, I would almost go so far as to say I have too much - I know, that's preposterous, right?!) So, it was pretty much a no-brainer that I was going to sign up when I saw PRACTICAL SCRAPPERS was doing a feature on Halloween cards and layouts.
I decided it would be fun to make a few easy Halloween cards. I will NEVER be a cardmaker, but I do enjoy making cards. And these cards ended up looking pretty sweet, don't you think?
I discovered - after purchasing lots and lots (and lots) of stamps (and all the supplies that go with them) - that while I love the look of stamped images, I don't so much enjoy stamping and coloring. In fact, I don't enjoy it even a little bit. So I pretty much work with whatever papers and embellishments I have on hand - and that seems to work out just fine - especially when the papers are as cute as these!
I used papers from MY MINDS EYE's Blackbird Collection. I only had a few pieces of paper left, one of which included these cute little kids. So, I did what I always do when I really like an image on a piece of paper - I cut it out and put it on my card. I included the Boo phrase from MME's Haunted Collection; added some twine, a border punched accent piece, a couple of bats, and a tiny button; and I was done.
For my next card, I mostly used papers from ECHO PARK's Apothecary Emporium; however, my tag and October 31st piece are both from MME's Haunted Collection. I sewed several of my borders, as well as a small square of burlap behind my October 31st tag to add a little visual interest. Although this card was super quick and easy to make, I love the final result!
That's it for me today, but stay tuned - I have more Practical Scrappers projects coming up this week!
