Halloween preparations!

Spooky, huh?
   I have finally started my Halloween cards that I plan on selling at the HOLIDAY SHOPPING SPREE next week in Berwick, Maine.  I really love to make these cards.
   I used Sizzix's die cut of a Haunted House. I put it in the picture for you to see what it looks like.
   I added the ghosts. One is another die cut from Sizzix and the other, in the window, is an upside down owl with eyes. ( My sister, Rochelle, showed me this one.)
   I stamped a white flourish over the house with SU white ink. The flourish is from Inkadinkado.
   The sentiment is from gStudio and I aged the paper with Tim Holtz's Distress inks: Vintage Photo and Mustard Seed. Ranger's Crackle Paint called "Rock Candy" was used to make it look even older.
   Martha Stewart's punches for the black trees and the web around the border was used for a more spooky effect.
   I used Tim Holtz's die cut that is a small easel. It works well when you want your card to stand up and it closed up flat to send through the mail.
   I really like this card, if I don't sell it, I will send it to someone for Halloween. Whoooo will it be????
Another view!
Back view!


  1. I love the background on this card! It really does give it a very Halloween feel! Love the skull too!

  2. The little ones in the windows are so cute! Great job!

  3. Connie,
