Happy Halloween!

My favorite holiday of the year, Halloween! I just love seeing the little ghosts and goblins going door to door yelling "trick or treat". Their excitement fills the cold evening air!

This is my Halloween card for this year. The background is a wonderful raised flocked paper, made by Making Memories, called "Flocked Spider". It's a perfect background with it's raised flocked cobweb!

All paper and inks used are from Stampin' UP except the cobweb background.

Stamps: Tricky Treats
Paper: Flocked Spider, Whisper White, Basic Black
Ink: So Saffron, Black Stazon, Sahara Sand

Also used were various markers and colored pencils, along with sponge daubers.

Have a spooktacular Halloween!

When I hear the word "Autumn" the first thing that comes to mind is the beautiful fall foliage we have here in New England. I had to make an autumn themed card and thought this set would be perfect with the little girl raking up the colorful leaves. The image is from one of the first SU sets I ever bought called "Fall for All".

Stamps: Fall for All, Seasons by Season
Ink: Versamark, Black Stazon, More Mustard
Paper: Really Rust, Whisper White, More Mustard, Non SU red

Also used were sponge daubers, various colored pencils, and a small leaf punch from an unknown manufacturer.
