Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!
I hope everyone has a safe and fun trick or treat night! We don't have any little kids anymore so we just get to hand out candy..I miss those days!
In honor of Halloween today, I wanted to share two card with you that I taught at my last DistINKtive Cards class at Scrapp'n Savvy. The first card uses the new Karen Burniston Door, Opening &Wreath die. I love this die! I orginally bought it thinking of a Christmas door, but then thought a trick or treat door would be so much fun. This die is so versatile- you could do any holiday, birthday, get well, new home, special delivery..and on and on.  For my card I also added the branch from the Tim Holtz Holly Branch die with some tiny maple leaf punches. I stamped a pumpkin and cut it out and added it to the front. Inside the door it says trick or treat. I love the way it turned out.
My last card is one that I have seen many similar versions of all over the web. The mummy card is fun and easy to make. Just tare strips of white cardstock in different angles, Ink with brown ink, the grungier the better! Add the black strip and then layer the white strips. Add the squiggly eyes, BOO! and the little spider stamp and you are all done. So cute and fun to make!

A couple of cards


I'd like to share a couple of the cards I taught in my DistINKtive card class at Scrapp'n Savvy last month. We usually do 4 cards using different techniques. We have come to really love the Copic Marker on Glitter Ritz technique using Elizabeth Craft Designs outline stickers. The pumpkin card is a great example of that. Its so much fun to color on the highlight glitter ritz. It takes very little ink and produces a wow effect every time!

We also did a fun card using tags. I was inspired by the design of this card and really wanted to do a smiliar one. I redid it using Bazzill Avalon Pattern Paper. Isn't it cute! You could change the theme up for almost any occasion.

Thanks for stopping by! I love reading your comments so please feel free to leave one!
