Luke says it's about time I got ready for Halloween. I had hung a wooden pumpkin on the front door and I was told that I was pretty late getting started.
One of the ways I decorate for Fall/Halloween/Thanksgiving is with cards. They sit on the mantel and the side table. And of course there are cards adorning the craft room to inspire those who stamp there.
This image was a discard from cards we did in the class Thursday. When I saw this card by Queen Pat (imastamper), Splitcoast Stamper's Queen for the Day this week, I knew this piece could find a home.
While looking through Pat's wonderful gallery, I saw lots of other cards that I would love to CASE. I'm hoping I can get my work done so I can CASE some more.
I'm going to share this with a couple of challenges.
Addicted to Stamps is having an Anything Goes challenge.
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge wants us to use a Rubber or Clear Stamp. The pumpkins and the sentiment are stamped.
Stamps: Halloween Happiness, All Holidays (retired)
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip, SU Markers (Soft Suede, Old Olive, More Mustard, Daffodil Delight)
Paper: Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, DSP
Other: Raffia (craft store)
We stamped all the pumpkins in Pumpkin Pie ink and colored the stems, leaves and vines with markers. Then we stamped the Jack-0-lantern again. After fussy cutting it out, we placed it on the design with a dimensional. I separated the sentiment from the main body of the stamp so we could use this image for a Fall card. It can easily be added when we want the sentiment. Here's the card they did.
I don't do many Halloween cards, but it's nice to have some on hand for the boys to give their teachers. And my DDs love to do Halloween in a big way, so I try to give them a card to sit on a shelf for the month.
Glad you could stop by. Are you ready for Halloween?
