Until Halloween and the excitement is building for the little people in the Wills’ household…

They can hardly wait to run out to go trick or treating – although it really doesn’t feel like the end of October with the next few days forecast to be highs of 90 degrees here in Central Texas!!!

Finally I got my Halloween cards made and ready to mail – I made lots & lots of these to mail to EVERY customer who has placed an order with me this year – AND they will also get a cute Reindeer Make ‘n Take in their envelope too…I will post more about that later this week.

So here is my card…

I used three colors of cardstock – Old Olive, Basic Black & Whisper White…

My black layer is textured using my Big Shot & the FABULOUS Spider Web Embossing Folder (pg 218) – I love how that backdrop fits perfectly with my witchy theme – here is that textured web pattern that you get when you use it:

See that gorgeous glitter moon? SO simple to make using Silver Glimmer Paper (pg 41 Holiday Mini Catalog) and the 1 3/8″ Circle Punch – I added it using Dimensionals to layer it over my cloud…

Those images? Stamped with stamps from the beautiful halloween set Out on a Limb that you can find on pg 12 of the Holiday Mini Catalog – it is a set of 10 and comes in both Clear Mount & Wood Mount versions…

The Clear Mount version costs just $16.95 which is great value for money…AND using Clear Mount stamps makes stamping a scene like mine above super easy because you can put more than one stamp on your acrylic block at a time – this is what I mean…

I put both the cloud stamp and the broom stamp on the same acrylic block – I inked them up & stamped them just like they are one big stamp – it works beautifully and it makes stamping a scene fast!

If you were using a clear mount sentiment you could have added that too making this card very quick to put together.

I then stamped my cute witch and punched her out using my 1 3/4″ Circle Punch and colored her and the broom in using Markers…I then added her to the scene using Dimensionals so that she is hovering over the broom…

For a finishing touch I stamped my sentiment using a stamp from Teeny Tiny Wishes (one of my favorite GO TO sets) and added a piece of Old Olive 1/4″ Grosgrain Ribbon

Isn’t it cute?  I love this card – and the stamp set Out on a Limb is adorable featuring this cute witch, a cat, an owl, jack-o-lanterns, bats, spiders…in fact EVERYTHING you need for a Halloween projects!
