I really wanted to leave my post of the Halloween treat box up for a few days but I cant stand it any longer - I had to post my two Halloween cards I made yesterday! I can't even post just one and then the other one another day, I love them so much I am sharing them both right away LOL!
The paper is such a great stack! I never heard of it before but when I saw it I grabbed it :) It is by Nikki Sivils 6x6 mini paddie called "Boo-tiful". The ghost paper in the treat box is from it as well as all of the designer papers in these two cards.
I received these images from a fellow SCSer - Kathleen thank you again! I ordered the stamps but haven't received them quite yet so she sent some for me to play with :) By the way if you want to order these two you can from Kelly at KLStampinNScrappin and if you look to the left side she has High Hopes, CC designs, Stampavie, other Magnolia stamps too plus the Eerie Collection by Basic Grey.
The Tilda with Spider one was made for a challenge using circles. The background paper was all circles so that was my first part and then the two circles to the side complete that theme. Of course the pumpkins are kind of circular too! I must say this is the first time I delved into 6 x 6 for a card- basically I don't because they are difficult to mail but I just couldn't fit her and embellishments on an A2 size card. WOW! It is soooooooooo much easier to use 6 x6 for her! Amazing, totally removes all my issues I have trying to make cards with these stamps. So anyway back to the spider - I used that cute spider stamp again on the card and hung it from its web string through the two circles. There are tiny jewels in the hearts on the bottom, I used three, I am just too conservative to use them in every heart! There is Stickles glitter on both the spiders. I actually didn't follow a sketch or copy someone else's card for these, occasionally I can do it on my own :)
Tilda holding the pumpkin is just adorable, I just had to use my candy corn ribbon with this! I also wanted to use the Spellbinders fancy tag in the ribbon. If you look close the orange paper behind it has very faint bats flying all over it. It is really cute but hard to see. Same set for the word trick or treat and candy corn as the one I used on the spider card, those mini clear stamp sets you pay $1 for. I just had to use my favorite border punch too, the fence on the bottom. Stickles on the pumpkin and a jewel in the sentiment and that's about it. Hope you like them, I think I may just do 6 x 6 for her again!
