More Halloween Cards

These are the remaining three cards that I made for the Halloween Card Swap over at scrapbook.com.  I hope you enjoy them!

This first one was made using the retired Tee Hee Hee stamp set.  I know it's not available anymore, but I just think it's an adorable set -- it even has a stamp for the little clothespins! This card was totally inspired by a post I saw on Pinterest.

Stamp Set:  Tee Hee Hee (Retired)
Cardstock:  Basic Black, Crumb Cake, Whisper White
Ink:  Basic Black, Garden Green, Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip (for the brooms)
Other:  Crumb Cake Thick Baker's Twine

This second one was fun to make, and I really got my fingers inky!  The sky was made with a mixture of Elegant Eggplant and Basic Black inks.  The grad was made with a mixture of Wild Wasabi and Crumb Cake inks with a few dabs of Basic Black.  There were NO stamps used here!
The pumpkin was made by punching three small ovals with the small oval punch (retired) and layering them to form the pumpkin.  The pumpkin stem is made from the leaves from the Bird Builder punch.

Cardstock:  Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, Always Artichoke
Inks:  Elegant Eggplant, Basic Black, Wild Wasabi, Crumb Cake
Punches: Small Oval (retired), Bird Builder
Die Cuts:  Spooky Fence (Sizzix) and Bats (Sizzix)

This last one would also be a good choice for a fall or Thanksgiving card (with a different sentiment of course! LOL).  I just love the Hardwood background stamp.  I made the pickets on the fence by using the Hexagon punch to form the pickets.

Stamp Set:  Hardwood, Wondrous Wreath, Good Greetings (no longer available)
Cardstock:  Early Espresso, Whisper White, Crumb Cake
Inks:  Soft Suede (for the fence and sentiment), Pumpkin Pie, Early Espresso (for the brown leaves on the wreath)
Punch/Die: Hexagon, Wonderful Wreath Framelit
Ribbon:  Early Espresso seam binding
Other:  Brown brads

I hope you like these cards and that they inspire you to get your hands dirty and create some Halloween cards!
