Halloween Card Making Fun

Hi everyone I've got a couple more Halloween cards to share with you, having so much fun making them this year!

First up is my Stacked Jacks card.

I used Tim Holtz's Halloween Script stencil on the background, inking it with Black Soot Distress Ink and then colouring over the stenciled words with Wilted Violet and Seedless Preserves DI.  I then spattered on some water and some drops of Evergreen Bough and Aged Mahogany Distress Oxide Inks.

Tim's new Bat Crazy bats were die cut from black cardstock and adhered over top.

And then the pumpkins were stamped onto Distress Mixed Media Heavystock coloured with Rusty Hinge, Carved Pumpkin and Spiced Marmalade with Tim's Jack O Lantern stamps (this set was only available through Michaels a couple of years ago, they are a slightly smaller version of his Pumpkinhead stamps) and die cut with the coordinating dies.  I stacked them up on top of each other and the card was done.

It wouldn't be Halloween without my beloved Lost Zombie so I broke him out to make my Trick Or Treat Zombie card.  Went a little nuts with the colours on this one LOL!

I stenciled the mini Crossbones stencil onto black cardstock with Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide for the back panel and then used Tim's new Shifter Chevron stencil with Crushed Olive and Seedless Preserves Distress Ink for the top panel, spritzing it with water.

The Lost Zombie was die cut from Distress Mixed Media Heavystock coloured with Peeled Paint, Cracked Pistachio and Evergreen Bough Distress Oxide Inks.  His shirt was die cut again and coloured with Aged Mahogany DOX and his pants die cut from a piece of Tim Holtz stencil packaging.

The spider from Tim's Frightful Things die set was cut from black cardstock and hung from the zombie's hand with a piece of thread and then the 'trick or treat' sentiment from his Regions Beyond stamp set was stamped onto the same DOX inked card that the zombie was cut from.

Hope you've enjoyed seeing them, I have to get them into the mail right away to some of my Halloween loving crafty buddies and I hope that they will like them too.  Thanks as always for stopping by today and happy (Halloween!) creating,

  1. Spookalicious - these are so cool. Great use of the die-cuts and brilliantly queasy colours in action. I do love those pumpkins... may have to go looking on ebay!
