Halloween Cards with Tina

Halloween Greetings!

Tina here, with three Halloween cards

just in time using stamps and papers from my favorite store, The Crafty Scrapper!

First one, uses stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn and paper from Echo Park.

The next two cards have stamps from a Carta Bella clear set and a Echo Park clear set, both were new this fall.  On the witch card, the paper came from the matching Carta Bella paper pad! 

Papers on the third one are from a new Authentique paper pad.

 

Be sure to check out The Crafty Scrapper

for all your Halloween card needs!

Happy Stamping!

Halloween Layout with Ginger

Hello friends!  I did the layout for the Design Team at The Crafty Scrapper.

I had a blast working on this one and the photo sent me back during the time when all four of my children were so young.  This littler Tonto is my youngest Christopher!   I love these papers by Carta Bella.  They go so well together!

Here are some close-ups!

I used die-cuts, paints, chipboard and stickers.  Please go to The Crafty Scrapper and you will find on the back of this layout all the items that I used.

Hugs – Ginger

Trick Or Treat Card with Lori

Hi Everyone,

Today I have for you a super cute Halloween Card!

I have recently been playing with some of the new Halloween dies from Tim Holtz.  One of my favorites is of this silouette that was originally a stamp and has now been made into a thinlet die.

I used black cardstock to form a gatefold style card for the base.  Using the TH idea-ology Kraft-Stock paper pad, I cut paper to fit each of the sections of the folded card.  Before attaching the polka dot paper, I sponged around the edges in Walnut Stain Distress Ink to “vintage” it up a little!

 

I cut out all of the images from the thinlet set.  The Trick or Treat and the bats are all in this same thinlet collection. I cut out an additional “OR” from the Trick or Treat thinlet and added it on top of the main image just to make it pop! I cut out an additional umbrella top out of the polka dot cardstock to make this piece pop too!  The siloutte piece is added to the back of a strip of black cardstock also layered with a piece of the polka dot kraft stock and attached to each end of the card!

I think this is a “wow” card especially with this siloutte of the Trick or Treaters! It really shows them off!

Another awesome thing about this card is it folds flat and fits in a regular A2 size envelope so that you can drop it in the mail to your favorite Trick or Treaters!!

I hope you enjoy my card.  All of the supplies used are available to purchase at The Crafty Scrapper. Come see us, we will be happy to help you find the supplies.

See you at my next post!
