I love pumpkins and so does my son. One of his first words was pumpkin. But he said it more like pununanun. Now he says it correctly but I'll never forget how he first pronounced it cause it's one of the cutest words I ever heard!! Here are 2 Halloween cards I made featuring pumpkins. Both were made with Doodle Dragon Studios images and colored with Prismacolor pencils. The backgrounds were made by sponging. They both have a little sparkle to them. I embossed the trick or treat with glitter then used orange stickels and covered it with glossy accents. On the second card the bats are embossed with glitter too.

Here's a peek at the inside of the first card:

And here's a peek at how I decorated the fronts of my envelopes:

Going Batty

I am not a big fan of bats the only way I enjoy them is at the zoo or as a digital stamp. This little cutie is from Doodle Dragon Studios. I colored him with prismacolor pencils and blended with baby oil then mounted him on foam. The bats are from Recollections and tree is from Posh Impressions and are all embossed. Heres a look at the inside...

Thanks for stopping by! Im off to work on some more Halloween cards!!

Watch out for the Grim Reaper!

Here's another card I finished up today and is now ready to be mailed tomorrow. The Grim Reaper is from Doodle Dragon Studios and is popped up on foam. I colored him using Prismacolor pencils. The background was made using Cloud 9 and Recollections stamps. The house, bat, splatters, moon and stars are all embossed. Here's a look at the inside too...

I'd like to enter this card in Dustin Pike's "Spooktastic" challenge.

I think I might need to double post all the way to Halloween cause it's fast approaching and I have lots more to share!

Ghostly Gathering

I can't believe were almost half way thru the month already!! I have barely started decorating! Well at least I have been crafting my days away! I finished up this card along with several others today. The main image is from Doodle Dragon Studios and is popped up on a piece of foam. I created my own background scene using Cloud Nine and Recollections stamps. The splatters, fence, moon and stars are all embossed. Here is a look at the inside...

I'm entering this card in Dustin Pike's "Spooktastic" challenge.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope everyone is enjoying the Halloween season so far!

It's October!!

I'm so excited that October is finally here! I love Halloween! I have a whole set of Halloween cards to get the month started. I made this set for a cat shelter fundraiser. As a lover of cats and Halloween I couldn't pass up the opportunity to donate these cards to such a worthy cause.

All 5 cards were made with images from Doodle Dragon Studios 2011 Halloween set. They were all colored with Prismacolor pencils and blended with baby oil when needed. Both of the background papers are from DCWV Ghosts and Goblins paper stack. The pumpkin stamp is from Recollections and colored with an Orange glitter pen.

Here's a close up of each card:

Thanks for looking! Check back soon cause I have a lot more Halloween cards and a few other Halloween related crafts coming up!
