Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! I had just a couple more projects to share today for Halloween. I had made a card and banner earlier in this post, and I created a Trick or Treat sign to go with it. I've been changing out my mantle decorations with the seasons and holidays, and this is my Halloween set for this year.

Here's a closer look at the new sign. I stamped the Larger Than Life Alphabet & Numbers Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versamark Ink onto watercolor paper, and heat embossed it in clear. Then, I saturated the background with water, and added Tangerine Tango, Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive inks with my Aquapainter. I also stamped the spooky eyes in Old Olive ink, and splattered on some Soft Suede ink. A few small banners of cardstock and patterned paper and some Baker's Twine complete the piece.

Here are some closer looks at the card and the banner on the mantle.

And, here is a shot of the whole mantle. I love how it turned out. Obviously I'm not into the super scary Halloween decorations, so I went with some that featured fall colors and just a little spooky with the birds and eyes.

I also have one more card to share for Halloween. I thought it would be fun to feature a Halloween card where the view was looking into the house with the spooky eyes looking out at you. And, I wanted to use the spider web in the corner of the window too. I backed the window with some Crushed Curry Cardstock to add some glow to the scene. The top layer is Vellum Cardstock, on which the spider web and greeting are stamped. I used the same layers under the main greeting, and highlighted it with gold metallic thread and sequins.

I used the Brick Wall Textured Impressions Embossing Folder inked with Black Memento ink on Smoky Slate Cardstock for the background of the card. I cut 4 black frames with the Hearth & Home Thinlits Dies, and trimmed out the middle of the window panes. I put the Crushed Curry Cardstock at the bottom of the stack, and the Vellum Cardstock just under the top black frame. So, it has some nice dimension to it.

Well, that is all for today. I hope you enjoy the day, and don't over-indulge in candy and sugar! Thanks for stopping by.
