HAPPY HALLOWEEN TO YOU

Happy October and Happy Halloween!  I’m a little early with this card but really wanted to show you the very cute stamp set that’s in the September Paper Pumpkin kit.

I had a little fun with the spooky pumpkin faces by embossing them with White Stampin’ Emboss powder and then added the simple banner.  This is for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge for this week as well as The Paper Players Halloween theme challenge.

Here’s a copy of the sketch in case you’d like to give it a try yourself.

ARE YOU INTO THE WALKING DEAD?

Are you someone who likes to watch the Walking Dead?  I must confess that I am not a fan – BUT – Halloween just wouldn’t be Halloween without a Zombie!  So, I created my own on this 6″ x 6″ scrapbook page.

Zombie scrapbook page - www.cynthiascreativecorner.com

Yes, I took the cute boy image from Skating By and turned him into a zombie!  His clothes are made from the Burlap Ribbon – I stamped the images onto it using the Archival Black ink and then cut them out.  TIP: Glue Dots(103683) are the best way to secure them to the image.

The white circle was created using the Wonderful Wreath Framelits Dies(135851) and makes the background mat for a circular photo that measures about 2-1/2″.  This little page would make a good addition to any 12″ x 12″ scrapbook page or add it to your Project Life Album.

Tomorrow is the big Spooky Day – so stay safe and have fun!  See you on Monday!

ANOTHER LOOT BAG IDEA FOR YOU

Have you tried the Gift Bag Punch Board?  It makes creating a loot bag very easy!  This is another one that I’ll be filling full of goodies for our visiting trick or treaters.

Boo treat Bag - www.cynthiascreativecorner.com

I cut a piece from the Into the Woods Designer Series paper to 5-1/2″ x 10″ and then just followed the instructions to create the bag.  The ghosts were created using the Large Oval Punch and then I drew on their faces with the Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker.   Aren’t they cute?

GOOD TO THE LAST BITE GIFT BAG

Are you all ready for the Trick or Treaters?  I’ve been prepping goodie bags that should hold some “good to the last bite” things for our special visitors.

This bag is simple but packs a big punch!

Last Bite treat bag - www.cynthiascreativecorner.com

I used the Mini Treat Bags Thinlits Die to create it out of Tangelo Twist cardstock.  TIP:  Use Tear & Tape Adhesive to adhere it together so it doesn’t come apart at the seams!

I first stamped the greeting all over and then put the bag together. The tag was heat embossed with Black Emboss powder to give it a little more pop.  While I was stamping, I decided to highlight that cute little vampire by using the Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker that you can purchase individually(100082).

Here’s the list of products that I used to create this cute and efficient little goodie bag.

GOOD TO THE LAST BITE FROM STAMPIN’ UP!

Happy Monday and I’m continuing on with my tribute to Halloween with this “Good to the Last Bite” card.

Last Bite - www.cynthiascreativecorner.com

I found that some of the patterns in the Bohemian Designer Series paper pack fit in quite well with a Halloween theme, especially the purple tones!  Adding a bit of Typeset specialty is my nod to the part of the world where, it is believed, that Vampires came from – lol.

Did you know that you can stamp your own image onto the Into the Woods Elements?  I did just that with the bevy of spiders from A Little Something stamp set.  What vampire is complete without his pets?

Here’s the complete list of everything I used to create this Halloween card.

I’m still working on Halloween-themed projects and have a few more for you for the rest of this week.  Stay tuned and Happy Stamping!

A GHOSTLY ENCOUNTER!

Ok, I’m switching things up to Halloween today.  Actually, I’ve challenged myself to create Halloween projects for the next week. And it will be bit of a challenge because I do not have a lot of Halloween-themed stamp sets and paper……….so, here is my first project for you.

Ghosts - www.cynthiascreativecorner.com

He, he, aren’t those ghosts cute?  I used the Large Oval Punch and then added their faces with the Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker from the Neutrals collection.  The tiny pumpkins come from one of the dies in the Square Pillow Box Thinlits die package.  There’s nothing like a challenge to inspire the imagination is there?!

A BEVY OF PUMPKINS

Today’s card shows off a bevy of pumpkins for you.

A Bevy of Pumpkins - www.cynthiascreativecorner.com

He, he, it was fun to make and could easily be used for a Thanksgiving greeting as well.  I wanted to play along with The Paper Players for this one, their theme is Halloween, hence the pumpkins and greeting!

The framelits from the A Little Something Bundle can add just the right amount of pop to your project!  To give those tiny leaves a little more dimension, I sponged on some Crumb Cake ink.

IS IT TOO EARLY FOR HALLOWEEN?

Is it too early to post a Halloween card?  I was playing around with yesterday’s Mojo Monday sketch and just had to use the really cute spider stamp that’s in A Little Something stamp set.  What do you think of this card?

Spooky spiders - www.cynthiascreativecorner.com

I’ve had the Tree Builder Punch for a while and decided that it was time to put it to work – soooo check out these spooky spider trees accented with tiny black birds and pumkins!  This design from the Winter Wonderland Specialty Designer Series paper reminded me of spider webs and this card was born.  Let me know what you think, I love reading your comments!
