Happy Halloween

Happy Thursday to you!

The way the months are flying by it will be Halloween before we know it!
I love to make Halloween cards!

Though I haven't used any here,
there are a ton of Halloween dies in the Dies R Us store.
Try typing different Halloween words in the search box
and be amazed at what comes up!



I started my card with a base of Halloween scrap papers,

cut in strips and adhered down on card stock.


Using black embossing powder, vellum, Copics, and

a never before used
Prickley Pear Midnight Choir stamp,
I created the focal point for my card.


The sentiment is framed in black with Shaker Square Frames by Memory Box.
The orange background was created with Stitched Square Layers
also by Memory Box.
These two dies are made for each other and work extremely well together!

I have to say I have a slight addiction to the stitched dies
and have been getting quite a nice collection of them!
They cut perfect every time...love that!
There again if you type "stitched" in the search box,
you will see all  kinds of things come up....and remember
to check often as there are always new ones added!

A bow, a tag and a few gems were added to finish!

Make sure to visit us here Monday - Friday for all the DT inspiration.
It is a wonderful place to see the latest dies in use!

Pop on over to our Dies R Us challenge blog as well.

Wowie, that's a stamp? I LOVE it! Could have sworn it was a die cut at first. Really cute card, Diane! Everything works so well together. Love the little tag. I did get the stitched scalloped circles and they're awesome!

Those cats really karacked me up, Diane! This is one of the best Halloween cards I've ever seen! There is so much to entertain the eyes! Thank you for playing in my NBUS Challenge #5 ~ which was so long ago now! I’m sorry that my nursing duties have delayed my visit to you. Enjoy your day! Hugs, Darnell
