Happy Halloween!!!

Helloooooo and Happy Halloween! A quick for you today.... a Halloween card, what else?! I made this card for the September Card Chain Challenge.

If you're new to this, check out  Debi's Society of Stampaholics. Basically, it's an international card swap club. We send out a card a month and receive one in return from anywhere in the world. It's fun getting something other than bills in the mail. You should try it!

This card went to Christy in California and in return, I got one from Lizzy Hill in Australia.

The focal image is from Chocolate Baroque's Book of Spells A5 stamp sheet. To create the mood background I used Distressed Inks, of course.

Sky: Black Soot, Chipped Sapphire, Faded Jeans and Stormy Sky
Ground: Fossiled Amber, Scattered Straw, Crushed Olive, Frayed Burlap and Antique Linen.

The greeting is from the Witching Time A5 stamp sheet, stamped on some scrap patterned paper with VersaFine Onyx Black and mounted on foam tape.

I stamped the haunted house with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured it with Graph'It alcohol markers. To add texture to the ground, I made little dots with a dark yellow marker. To finish, little dots in the sky with a silver Sharpie.

Here's are some extra treat boxes I made last the dead of night! Very quick no fuss boxes using Clearly Besotted stamps and coordinating dies.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Must dash! We are taking Peanut for a Howl-o-Weiner Doggie Parade. She's going all dressed up as a wild west salon lady! Will post pictures tomorrow :)

Have a lovely day, stay safe and don't let your black cat out. See you tomorrow for a brand new month of crafty goodness, friends. :)

  7. Oh, I do love that spooky haunted house, my friend! Sorry to have been MIA on visits but I've just been so busy with all the diabetes classes and adjustments that time is rather precious. I did browse around but simply had no time for individual comments on every post. Darling cards during my absence. :-D

  13. I had a busy last 2 days so seeing your Halloween creation today and I love it! I love how you coloured the house and love the purple background. I would be tempted to do a "Nightmare Before Christmas" inspired card if I had the house and colour it in red and green since I have a friend who is bah humbug. Gosh this is a great card and now I want to see your cutie furbaby all dressed up as Miss. Kitty:)
