Jessica’s Fangtastic Halloween Card

Jessica created an amazing last Halloween card before the trick or treating commences tomorrow!

Jessica started her remarkable design by inking an Outside In Stitched Rectangle panel with Stormy Sky Distress Oxide ink. She added a Simple Stitched Hillside Border to ground the scene before attaching Giant Trick or Treat. She switched up the look of the giant die cut by cutting it again from Canned Pumpkin cardstock to cover the letters of “treat”. So clever!

Then she filled out the scene with a Fangtastic Friends bat and pumpkins from Simply Celebrate Fall and Hay There Hayrides. She found those funny faces in the Thanks a Bushel set. And then she added fun details with Tiny Halloween adding flying bats, spiders and a cute ghost on the Spooky Forest Backdrop headstone.

On the inside of the card, Jessica stamped a sentiment from Pick of the Patch with more Tiny Halloween images!

Thank you so much for sharing this “fangtastic” Halloween card, Jessica! It’s the perfect last spooky card of the season!

Jenn is back to share another fun mixed media card today! Her eye-catching Giant Trick or Treat card combines hot foil with watercolor with spooky and sparkly results!

To begin this cool design, Jenn hot foiled with Starry Sky Background Hot Foil Plate on Distress Heavy Black cardstock. The hot pink color pops on the black background. Then she water colored with white mica-based Starry Colors paint over the top, so the foil resists the shiny color.

Additional shine and sparkle come in the form of glittery cardstock and more watercolor on the Giant Trick or Treat die cut. And finally, Jenn added the cut border of ghosts from Simply Celebrate Fall!

Thanks so much for sharing this artsy creativity, Jenn!

Getting a Little Bat-tea for Halloween with Ivy

Ivy joins us today with some Halloween inspiration! This punny bat design and shaker cards go together quick and easy for last-minute crafting! Or you can file them away to get a jump on next year!

What could be better than a fun and punny card? Sharing it with a fun and pun-loving friend! Ivy used Watercolor Wishes Rainbow paper for the scalloped background. Next, she added the Woodland Critter Huggers with the Bat Add-On. She found the sweet little mug in the Winter Add-On set! And finally, she finished the pun using Henry’s ABCs in some sparkly purple cardstock!

Ivy’s edge-to-edge shaker cards are so much fun! They are also so easy to create! She started with a panel of All the Dots paper. Then she used some recycled cello packaging to create a pocket for the shaker bits. She taped three sides to the back and filled it with sparkly sequins and tiny spider die cuts before sealing the last side.

Then she added the Giant Trick or Treat greeting and cute Halloween images from Fangtastic Friends and Spooktacular!

Thank you so much, Ivy for sharing your delightful Halloween designs!
