EEEK Halloween!

I've been on a roll lately! Not only have I been making a few Hero Arts 2011 catalog cards, I've done a couple cards for a Swedish magazine.....and some EK Halloween fun!

EK Success was kind enough to send me some AWESOME Halloween goodies to play with, and play I did! This card was a total blast! Shhhhh... there's no stamping!  GASP!!!! I know, how dare I! Well it didn't need any with all the adorable little parts and pieces.


Where do I begin... The bat at the top comes from THIS set of stickers, just too darned funny!!!  The background papers are from THIS set, so much variety in one pack, and the papers are 4"x6", perfect for cardmaking!  I punched out a circle from yellow Bo Bunny double dot paper, then edged it with Wild Honey and Scattered Straw Distress inks.   Oh and the jack-o-lantern... I cut it out from THIS paper (I thought the expression of it was just too cute!).  I covered it with Crackle Accents.  Here's a closer look.


The little candy corns come from THIS set of stickers. The Iron batty fence is THIS great Martha border punch, really easy to use.  I punched white cardstock and inked it up with Black Soot Distress ink so it would be Grey rather than black.  I finished the fence off with some black pearls (arrrrr sounds so pirate-ish) and May Arts stitched ribbon.


I've got tons more ideas kicking around in my head for halloween, can't wait to get back to my desk to play some more! One idea is to use a Stamp from the Hero Holiday release but switch it up to Halloween!

Hope everyone is enjoying their week so far!
