Boy,  summer really flew by and now it is time to think about Fall Holidays. I did some stamping today and got a good start on my Halloween cards.  I send the cards to my family and friends. I will be sharing three version made with one stamp.

Materials List:
Stamps: Graveyard, Happy Halloween, and Be Scary all from Technique Junkies
Ink: Tangerine Tango Stampin' Up
CS: White, gray, and orange
Washi Tape
Orange Baker's Twine
Orange Rhinestones

Make It:

  • Make a card from orange CS and add a layer of gray CS
  • On white CS, stamp the Graveyard with Tangerine Tango ink
  • Add to card front

  • Stamp the Happy Halloween sentiment on gray CS and add a layer of orange CS
  • Add the sentiment to the card
  • Place washi tape on edges of sentiment and add rhinestones
  • Tie baker's twine around card

 The second version is stamped with same ink.  Distress inks were added to the background.  I changed out the sentiment - Be Scary is used here

On the third version, The graveyard is stamped with black ink.  The background is colored with distress inks.  I added washi tape and rhinestones  as well.

Ohh, scary fun!!  Now, it is time to head over to Kathy's blog and check out her fun projects!!  Thanks for stopping by for this Halloween preview!! See you next time for more spooky projects--A Haunted house--oohhh.
