A lady at my Mom's work who buys cards needed a boy Halloween card as she already had one from me for a girl. I'm not good on the boy/ masculine cardmaking. I don't really have stamps and such for them. I started digging and thought the Reminscence Rest In Peace PP would be perfect. I cut out one of the tombstones as the main image, added some cuttlebug embossed grey paper for the ground and then painted the swirls with grey ink. Used the SU Sanded BG stamp for some colour, texture on the back grey panel and put in a piece of the RIP pp behind it. I had picked up some bat ribbon that is perfect for cutting little bats from. Way less work then the stamping and handcutting of the ones I did on my Jenna Witch card.

And there ya have it!
Happy Trick Or Treating to all you ghouls!

Witching You... a Haunting Halloween

Marvelous Mel spoiled me again with a little package of digi images printed out and some stamped ones. I used Jenna the Witch from LPS for this Halloweenie card. I picked up some lovely blue and blk halloween paper that I saw Mel had in her pile and I just had to copy. I told myself I wasn't going to buy anymore paper... ya well.. I'm a big fat liar. I bought lots. hee hee.
It's just so nice to have new things to motivate you once again. I paper pieced Jenna's dress in the matching PP. Painted in the grey sky, stamped and cut out a couple bat buddies, threw on the cool ribbon Mel and I got and should have gotten more of. It has wire in it. Too fun! Added part of the sentiment from SU Haunting Halloween stamp set and the other half is inside.. saying a Haunting Halloween. :o) The blk paper is a soft dusty black colour that was perfect for the faded blk on the pp, comparted to the normal blk.

I had fun making a card. It's been so long since I've made one. With just having gall bladder surgery, I'm here stuck on the couch with nothing to do, but wasn't able to sit comfortably to craft. I did sneak in some copic colouring while on the couch. I make a bad patient.

Thanks for having a look!

Have a Happy Halloween!
