Time to get out the Halloween stamps and get our cards ready to send. It will be here before you know it! I got out all the Halloween inspired stamps and goodies, and began auditioning various looks. One thing I knew I wanted to use was a neat new embossing folder that had a spider web.
I embossed the spider web design on black cardstock.
Oh, yes, I like that. An orange ribbon is added going straight across.
I stamped a spider web with a goofy spider on orange cardstock, and mounted it on a purple cardstock frame. Then it was glued to the front, overlapping the ribbon.
Inside is stamped with a jack-o-lantern and Happy Halloween.
On the back, I added a witches hat to my personal stamp.
That witches hat gave me an idea. The witch shoes are in the same Stampin Up set called Wicked Cool. I remembered another stamp about shoes in another Stampin Up set called Humor in High Heels. I thought they would be a hoot together. Plus, how often can you use a striped paper? It reminded me of the stripes on the witch’s tights. So, I mounted a large square of rust and white striped paper on cream cardstock.
The sentiment is from Humor in High Heels, and the hat and shoes are from Wicked Cool. I mounted the element on green cardstock as a frame. Perfect together aren’t they?
Inside are some bats, with a cute saying.
I added the witches hat to my personal stamp on the backs of these too. I liked that idea so much I made three more, with different color combinations.
Of course the envelopes all got a stamp too.
Isn’t this fun?
