Halloween 2015

Halloween cards for grandkids and friends. Changed the sentiment on the first one to “Ghouls Night Out” for my friends.

Booyah is a spinner card. Lots of fun to make. Wind it up before closing, when it is opened the ghost spins around.

Loved making these cards. Getting better at shaker cards. It is hard to get a good technique going. I don’t know if I prefer using foam tape or fun foam sheets. I tried both ways on the Ghouls Night Out. I think I liked the foam tape best.

I did a lot of colored pencil coloring on my train trip in September.  It is very relaxing and I need the practice.  I love this Gorjuss stamp.  All of there stamps are adorable.  I wanted to make a card around the stamp.  It sure does take a long time when you don’t start with any ideas.  I think I spent most of the day but I am very happy with the finished product.  I used an embossing folder for the tree in the background.  Colored the tree by sponging on distress inks.  Die cut the hearts after sponging Barn Door distress ink on brown paper.  Love the colors.  I didn’t want it to necessarily look like a valentine so the distressed colors worked beautifully.Love Every Day
