I am loving the Fall Fest Prints Paper (PP-0048). They are all so pretty. They are available in the Journey Holidays Trends Mini Catalog (CL-0028) that runs through the end of December. I think I might have to order a couple more packs of this.
I love the Halloween stamps, papers and embellishments. This year I decided to make some Halloween cards with some inspiring or fun messages to send to my friends. I think we love Halloween just as much as the kids do so why not share the fun with the adults as well!!
Blue Lagoon (CS-0004) cardstock was used for the card base. (this is an amazing color in-person). I used one of the prints from the Fall Fest Prints and using the Journey Circle Die (DI-0039), cut a circle in it. I took a scrap piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) cardstock and stamped the words Trick or Treat from the Creepy Kids Bundle (BD-0297) in Rock Candy (IP-0028) ink. (I didn’t use Black Licorice because I wanted the words to be there but not take over the paper or the Halloween Scene – I wanted them to be a little more subtle). I adhered those pieces to piece of Black Licorice (CS-0003) cardstock.
The Creepy Kids were stamped in Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink onto Whip Cream cardstock and colored in using the Color Burst Pencils (JM-0077). I used our Fringe Shears (TO-0081) to cut some Green Olive (CS-0113) cardstock to make it look like grass. Using Foam Squares (AD-0084 and AD-0085), I popped up the grass onto the card base and then added the Creepy Kids using Foam Squares as well.
For the inside of the card, I used some scrap pieces of the Fall Fest Prints (I love this paper so much I didn’t want to waste any of it) to adhere to a Whip Cream piece of cardstock. I stamped the saying Friends are our Chose Family in Black Licorice ink [this sentiment comes from the Chosen Family Bundle (BD-0263)] and then the Happy Halloween from the Creepy Kids set. I adhered the Whip Cream panel onto a piece of Black Licorice cardstock before adhering it to the Blue Lagoon card base.
I added one of the Creepy Kids to the inside of the card as well.
May all your hand-made creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.
Hope you enjoyed the Halloween creations this week!
