The Last of the Halloween Cards (Projects 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30)

Woo Hoo!!! I'm more than half way to my goal of 50 cards.  I'm really going to have to get moving with posting if I want to meet my goal in time to do some crafty shopping on Black Friday.

The Raven

The image is a stamp by Stampendous.  I colored it with Distress Inks in Dusty Concord, Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade.   I then used Frantage (by Stampendous) embossing powder and mica chips, and some Martha Stewart glitter along the edge.  I’m not sure if I like how it came out.  I have a love-hate relationship with the Frantage embossing powders and elements.  I love the stuff I’ve seen it used on but I tend to hate how it turns out when I use it.  I think I just need to keep practicing with it.
Pumpkin Head Girl
This image is by Stampendous, stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics.  I added stickles to her hat.  I inked the edges with Distress Ink in Dusty Concord.  I think it needs an embellishment but I can’t find one in my stash that I like how it looks with this.
Pumpkin Cat
This image is by Inkadinkado, stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and Colored with Copics.  I added stickles to the collar.  I die cut the oval and the scallop oval mat with Spellbinder nesties dies.
Girl Dressed Like Pumpkin
The image is by Recollections and was RAKed to me after last year’s Stamptoberfest over at Two Peas.  She’s stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics.  I added stickles to her tights and the three corners.  The candy corn circle and mat were cut with Spellbinder nestites dies.  The candy corn is from the same stamp set as the girl.  After coloring them, I added glossy accents for some shine and dimension.  The background was made by repeatedly stamping on the diagonal a long sentiment stamp by Stampendous.  It is about 5 inches long. 

The image is from the same set as the girl dressed like a pumpkin by Recollections, stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics.  I got a drip of ink on the top corner, so I covered it with the enamel pumpkin sticker.  The bow was made with my bow easy.  The sentiment is by Studio G.   

This is another fairly new stamp, by Outliners/ Hampton Art.  I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics.  I added liquid pearls to the hat, stickles to the spider’s thread, metallic pen to the buckle and Wink of Stella to the flower.  I created the bow with my bow-it-all.  I love that thing.

  1. Hi Sarah! Your Halloween cards are all fabulous! I love how you did each one and you have colored them so well with your Copics! You go Black Friday shopping?!! Not me! lol I stay in and away from the stores, I hate crowds. I hope you have fun though and find lots of good buys! Hugs, Brenda

  2. Hi Sarah, just chking in tonight before I close up operations. This is a really cute bunch of cards. Love #1, that is so very spooky & well done. I have some frontage, been afraid to use it! Love all the bright colors on each one of the cards, and all the tiny details you've added to make each one most unique. I think I have the little owl stamp. Looks like you made a lot of headway on your 50 card goal. Happy Black Friday shopping. I haven't done that for years. Don't know if I'll do any online B.F. shopping. I need to put a freeze on spending. I find I'm buying too many duplicates!!! Happy Thanksgiving, and hope you're staying warm. I hear it's getting a little frosty down your way! TFS & Hugs

  3. They look wonderful. Your colouring is so lovely on these and love the images you chose.
    Did not get any made this year...my bad, I know!
    Yours look great!
