Halloween cards ...

.... Good afternoon, after finishing all the washing and ironing, albeit temporarily, I manged to play in my craft room today and I've a couple of Halloween cards to share with you.  The first card is for the following challenges:


Stamps: My Favourite Things - Primitive Pumpkins; WMS - Cicely at Halloween
Inks: Kaleidacolour - Blue Breeze; Memento - Tuxedo Black
Dies: Die-namics - Primitive Pumpkins Dies
Accessories:  White Lustre Card; Stampin' Up! Card - Tempting Turquoise



This card was inspired directly from the Curtain Call graphic - I just love the blue pumpkins!!!  It gave me the perfect excuse to play with these super dies and matching stamps.  The card follows roughly follows the FTL sketch.  On the inside I cut a mat layer in turquoise and stamped this super poem and a few more blue pumpkins!!!  So quick and easy.  This is the first time I've played along with Curtain Call - don't know how I missed it!!  I think thanks must also go to Rosemary, seems I've CASEd her card!!!


My next card is also for a few challenges:


Stamps: PTI - Friendship Jar Fillers
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black
Dies: Spellbinders - Inverted Scalloped Squares Lg (S4-196) # 5 & 6
Accessories:  White Lustre Card; Stampin' Up! Card - Strawberry Slush, Lucky Limeade, Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black; EK Success Punches - Spider Web Border, Bats Border; Promarkers - Pumpkin, Oatmeal, Antique Pink, Black; Sakura Silver Pen; Cuttlebug EF - Art Deco

 
Once again, this card was directly inspired by the graphic from Colour Q - love the legs on the table!  I stamped the image, cut it out, coloured with Promarkers and layered it onto a orange square.  I added some texture to the lime panel and finished off the front with a tag in pink.  I've not done the inside of this card yet!

That's all for now.  Time to get dinner started.  See you soon.

Wow Deborah - I would never have imagined blue pumpkins as looking that great!! Love the sentiment on the inside too.

The witchy legs are so fabulous - absolutely too fun and all your added details are terrific too (took me a look or two to realize those are bats in that border strip). Thanks so much for joining us this week at ABC Challenges. Hugs D
