Pumpkins on the Fence

Hello Crafty Friends,

Today I want to share one last card I created for Halloween.  I knew I wanted to make a card with pumpkins on a fence.

I love the little fence die from Fun Stampers Journey, and I knew that I wanted to use it on a Halloween card.
I stamped the pumpkins from the Jack O'Lantern stamp set in Tangerine Fusion and Orange Creamsicle Cardstock.
I completed the card with a spooky moon and a Happy Halloween Sentiment.

Doodlebug Scrappy Halloween

Hello Crafty Friends,

I love Doodlebug Designs paper, so I had to make a cute Halloween card using the paper line.

I used Fun Stampers Journey Cardstock for the base of the card.  I then used the Diamond Net Embossing Folder to create the background to the card base.
I then added a few strips of scraps of Doodlebug Designs.  I distressed them with Black Licorice ink.

I finished the card by stamping the sentiment from Fun Stampers Journey, distressed it and added it to the card with pop squares.  I then added a Licorice Twist Twine.

Hello Crafty Friends,

We have a new challenge at Crafty Gals Corner.  Create a card with Halloween Colors.
Here is the card I created.

I got to play with this cute stamp from Dr. Digi called Cuddly Critters Hippo.

I created the card base with Cardstock from Fun Stampers Journey.  I then tied Black Licorice Twine around the card base and added some Licorice Sparkle Tape on the top and the bottom.

The pattern paper is from Recollections.

I colored the Hippo with my Copics; BV08, V17, V15, V12

I hope you will come join the challenge at Crafty Gals Corner.  Click here.

Doodlebug Halloween Card

Hello Crafty Friends,

I am not really a Halloween person, but with Doodlebug and their cute paper, I had to create a card.

I started with a layer of Black Licorice cardstock, which I embossed with the Diamond Net Embossing Folder.  I then swiped Whip Cream ink over the embossing to bring the pattern out.
I then cut two banners from the Doodlebug Pattern Paper.  Then I stamped the sentiment from the Jack-O-Lantern stamp set on Whip Cream Cardstock with Black Licorice ink and distressed all the pieces with Black Licorice ink.
I then added the glitter spider on top, from my stash.

All supplies are from Fun Stampers Journey, except the pattern paper.
