Cards-Christmas and Halloween-An Interesting Combo


Animal Friends-Halloween/Autumn
Color Q-Black, Concord Grape, Tangerine Tango, Crushed Curry, White

I love Halloween and have such fond memories. Actually, I will be seeing The Shining and Freaks on the big screen so I am excited. I tried some new stamps I bought this past summer. I stamped the cat and owls, coloured them up and fussy cut them. I took my distress stamps, stamped a surface one can clean up, spritzed with water and placed the white cardstock in it to create the background and finished it off with some misti to achieve that splatter. I stamped the cobweb in black and embossed in black sparkle just like the pussy cat. I put it all together with  some cardstock and Voila!


Crafty Creations-Always Anything Goes

I made this card a while ago but it fits the theme of orange. The background-yup distress inks. Embossed a yellow border with the snowflake design and took some pieces of cardstock in autumn colours to create this card. I had stamped this scene and used another part of it for a card and, since I can't throw anything away, I coloured this up in tombow markers, ripped it up for some other distress look and put everything together. Last, but never least, I added gold stickers and some crystals.  I think it has just a hint of Haunt in this Christmas scene.


Simon Says-Anything Goes
Holly Jolly-Use Snowmen

This is my Warhol theme and I apologize for the lousy picture. I stamped this image over a year ago and had these 3 laying around when I had a dim lightbulb go off and thought of this design. It was simple because I took some shimmery orange paper, embossed it with the snowflake design, added the snowmen, sticker borders, crystals and the saying. I think it turned out aok.


Tuesday Throwdown-Add a Border

I had to glitter this one up a bit. I took my cuddlebug and embossed the ornaments. I used my chalk pastels in orange and light blue for the ornaments and then glitter. I added orange cardstock and a light blue to mount them all together in some Roman orgy haze  and added the thick sticker border and the Merry Christmas. Still more to show and I will have our last Kitty up tomorrow:)

  5. I've never ever sent a Halloween card, but yours is very nice. I do like that Glad Tidings card. Unusual colors for Christmas but very nice. Did I say they were very nice? LOL

  7. Those are nice. I really like the Halloween one. Not such an odd mix. Unless you'd put Halloween and Christmas on the same card...

  11. The Shining? Wow. That's a perfect Halloween treat. Lock the doors, get a blankie and stock up on popcorn. That always helps me through that movie.

    Loved your Halloween card!

  12. Hi, Birgit!

    Hey, if you like Tod Browning's Freaks, then I urge you again to watch Freak Show: season 4 of American Horror Story. It's great stuff!

    Your Halloween card is spectacular, BB. It's probably the coolest one I ever saw, a perfect composition with black cat, owls and spider web plus brilliant seasonal colors. I love it!

    I also like the last Christmas card with ornaments in orange, red and what looks like confederate blue. Nicely done! Enjoy the movies and feel better soon, dear friend BB!
