Halloween is my favorite holiday so I’m excited to start working on my Halloween cards and projects. For my first idea (shown above) I used stamps from the Spooky Fun set and dies from the co-ordinating Halloween Scene Edgelits set to make a spooky Halloween scene card. The ghosts are stamped on Vellum Cardstock. The pattern paper is from the Halloween Night Designer Series. I love how fun and easy it is to mix and match these stamps and dies to make all kinds of cool scenes.
Next I wanted to make a treat bag, perfect for a Halloween party or to pass out to the trick or treaters. I decorated a small black bag using pattern paper from the Halloween Night series for the background, adding the fence from the Halloween Scene Edgelits dies and the moon, witch and words stamps from Spooky Fun.
Lastly I made another card filling the jar stamp from the Jar of Cheer set with bats from Spooky Fun. The bow is also from Jar of Cheer and the words, spider and web are from Spooky Fun. The neat thing about the Jar of Cheer set is some of the stamps co-ordinate with the Everyday Jar Framelits die set from the annual catalog! The pattern paper is from Halloween Night.
