Halloween Hauntings

Both of these cards were made using images from Artful Inkables Halloween Hauntings. On the first one, I used SU's Pumpkin Pie Cardstock and Gable Green Cardstock. I cut the papers using Spellbinders Dies (I don't always remember the number...this is one of those times). I also used Spellbinders Tag Die. I used Versamark Color Black and Black Embossing Powder from SU. I then heat embossed the image and the sentiment. Found some spider stickers in my stash and added a glitter leaf to the tag.

On my second Card, I used SU's Elegant Eggplant Cardstock and Pumpkin Pie using the Spellbinders Blossoms Dies and Spellbinders Circle Dies. I also used Spellbinders Deckled Edge die for the sentiment. I stamped the images using Momento Tuxedo Black and colored the images with my Copic Spica Markers. Ribbon from Stash and Glitter Dotts and rhinestones in the skulls of the gravestones...but you really cannot see them in these pictures unless you click on it! Great fun these images...and I have another from Artful Inkables coming up that is a favorite of mine and when first seen at work, it was sold!

You know, I should be cleaning house right now...but I sometimes just need a day to myself and so I have been lazy today...reading a bit, looking at magazines I haven't looked at...playing with my card stuff. I guess I need to at least get a couple of rooms cleaned today. So, I will leave and do what I need to do, cause if I do not, then I will be mad at myself tomorrow!

Thank you for your visit and I hope your week is a great one!

Hi Velta!!
I absolutely love that little grim reaper image (I know that sounds strange, hehe). He is very cute though and I love the cards that you made with this fun set.
Hope you are doing well and having a lovely autumn. I love this time of year with all of the cool, crisp evenings and all of the beautiful colors.
