I'm so sorry for being late with this post, and to tell you the truth there is no good reason for it. It was just a very crazy week all the way around, and I was just plain exhausted to be honest. But thank you to all of those who sent me emails of concern. I'll make you a promise. . .from now on, if there is something wrong I'll post to let you know. . .if not, just know that I'm just running behind. That way, you won't have to worry. Love you guys for that!
OK, the last of the Halloween cards (Bonnie is sighing with relief). HOWEVER!!!! The first card was made with a stamp set that SHE sent me as a gift for Halloween!!!! LOL Take a look:
This is such a cute set and so different from the ones I have. It is by Recolections. Love the haunted house stamp and the ghost and bat are really whimsical (thanks again Bonnie!!). I glittered up the bat with black glitter from MS. I chose the background paper because it reminded me of the wrought iron gating that you would find in front of a big old scary house. I stamped the house image right onto yellow cardstock. The card was quick and easy!
The only stamping on the next card is the sentiment:
The scrolly spider web and spider were already part of a 12 X 12 piece of paper by TCP. I simply cut the section out, matted it, and attached it to the background paper on my card. Stamped the sentiment and done! The spider is all glittery and the background paper I had kinda matched the swirly patter on the image.
The next two cards are kind of made to go together. One is for my sister and the other is for my Mom:
I've had these window beveled die cuts for over 3 years and have never used them. I thought that it would make a fun window scene for Halloween. Started with black cardstock and added a punched out white moon that I stamped a couple of bats on. Stamped the tree (Cowtown) in kraft white ink and then went over it with a glitter pen. Drew the ghost myself and cut it out. Taped the scene to the back of the window and then attached that to the background paper. Stamped the small "boo" and done.
Here is the companion card:
As you can see, I used the same paper as if it were from the same wall in the room of the house that the window is in from the card up above. I "built" the shelf from wood grain paper and then popped it up with dimensional tape. The bottles are MS Halloween stickers. As I placed them on the shelf, the spiders on the background paper kind of lined up and looked to me like they were grabbing or coming to grab some of the bottles. So I went with that! LOL Stamped the "eek" and done.
Well, that's it for this post. Again, so sorry it was so late. Thanks for your patience and concern.
I want to wish you all a VERY HAPPY HALLOWEEN! I hope it is fun and safe and filled with tons of treats and not tricks! Here is the last Halloween related Pic of the Week:
