Trick or Treat | Friends Our Are Chosen Family

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!!

I just love the bird/tree print paper that comes in the Fall Fest Prints.

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.

These little Creepy Kids have such great detail on them.

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.

This little ghost is my favorite Creepy Kid – he almost looks like he’s pouting – too cute.
