Halloween Card

I participate in a card swap with my local MOMS Club.  We organize it every two months and it has been a lot of fun.  We have an average of 8 participants and the cards are always super cute.  This month we are doing Halloween theme cards.  I love Halloween and am so excited to see all the cards that will be created.  I decided to share mine. Today we are swapping them so I will not be giving anything away.

Halloween Card Swap

For this card I used CTMH paper along with some other Halloween paper I had.  I used gypsy, goldrush and whisper cardstock.  The stamped images are  from a couple stamp sets Wicked (a retired stamp set), All Hallows Eve, and Moonlight WOTG (a retired stamp set).  I decided it needed a bit of glitz so I added Stickles to add the glitter.  I used purple, yellow and black Stickles.

Happy crafting,

I was excited about the patriotic stamps that CTMH was offering this year.   I think sometimes we get so caught up in our day to day routines that we forget to thank and show support for those who serve our county.    I know that I could be better about showing my patriotism and being more supportive of those who serve.

For this card I used cranberry cardstock for the base.  I still really like the Hero paper from last year and felt it was very fitting for this occasion with the blues and stars.  I used the the Home of the Brave stamp.  For inks I used Moonstruck, Cranberry and Slate.  The flag pole was done using black embossing powder.  I found some red, white and blue bakers twine to keep with the theme.

October Blog Hop

Welcome to the Roxybonds Scrappers Team Blog Hop!  

This month we are featuring artwork from the Moonlight paper pack.

If you have come here from Jen Patrick, then you are on the right path.  Your next stop will be Stephanie Feist.

I am a scrapbooker and love Halloween so this months artwork was so much fun for me to create. 

For this layout I used created my own stencil which I cut out with my Silhouette. I chose goldrush and smokey plum inks and used the spray pens to create the bat in the moon effect. I then used the Moonlight paper, goldrush,, smokey plum and slate card stock. I used the swirl stamp from the Moonlight scrapbook WOTG to stamp the smokey plum cardstock on the right.

I got so carried away with this Moonlight paper that I created a second halloween layout. This one I designed as a page kit that I will be selling.

For this layout I used slate, black and goldrush card stock along with the Moonlight paper.  I used the mummy stamp from the Moonlight WOTG and the vampire and skeleton stamps are from the Creapy Creatures stamp set. I used a blender pen with my inks to give them a little color.

Now hop on over to Stephanie Feist for your next stop.

Halloween Banner

I absolutely love this time of year!! I love fall and winter (yes I do like the cold and snow).  The holidays are always so fun and festive.  One of my favorite holidays it Halloween.  I aways decorate the first of October and we generally have a pumpkin carving party just before Halloween. This year I have been able to crate a couple decorations. I was very excited how my banner turned out. I used the CTMH banner. Moonlight paper pack, smokey plum, gold rush, and slate card stock.

On the Moonlight paper I added a little sparkle by applying lavender Stickles to the purple swirls. On the smokey plum, I stamped the banner with the ghost from the Creepy Creature stamp set.  I then used a blender pen and the colonial ink to make them pop. I then used orange Stickles to the pumpkin.  On the slate banners I used a bat stamp that I had.  I then stamped some on smokey plum cardstock and cut them out and used pop dots to make them stand out. I used the gunmetal Stickles to give them a little bling. And for the ends I used a web stencil I had and went over it with the gunmetal Stickles.  The spider I cut out using my Silhouette and added some crystals for the eyes.
