Have A Spooktacular Halloween!

Good Morning again!

Remember how I said I hope you weren't sick of all the Halloween cards I've been cranking out?!? Well, here's a couple more! LOL Forgive me, but I have a double post tomorrow and since I don't normally post on the weekends, I only had today to show you these fun cards using the recently released Costume Party set from Starving Artistamps/DoodleFactory!

I seriously could color these trick or treaters all day long! They really are the perfect size for coloring and cutting out. The layout for this first card was from an old TCP sketch I found on Leigh O'Brien's blog (love her style!). I used more of that Halloween paper from Recollections again and sponged the edges with Black Soot from Ranger's Distress Inks. The green horizontal panel was sponged then I stamped the haunted house from the Graveyard Shift set in the Peeled Paint ink. The two trick or treaters were colored with SU reinkers on Strathmore Bristol Vellum, then cut out and popped up on dimensionals. The inverted scalloped border was created with decorative scissors. It really does create a great look on Halloween cards.

This next card uses this week's Get Sketchy #5 sketch for it's layout. Again, I used more of that Recollections Halloween paper because, well...it's fabbie!! LOL The corners of the purple patterned paper were rounded with a corner punch and I also used it to create that large scalloped circle panel. Just take the guard off when you do this. The sentiment is from Starving Artistamps/DoodleFactory's Witch's Brew sentiment set which was released last year.
Thanks so much for stopping by again today! :)
