Trick or Treat, Smell my feet...

Here is my first Halloween card this year! I love these papers and super fun stamps.... The adorable little spider is from the Paper Doll Dress Up cricut cartridge.
They are:
Purple card base: Bo-Bunny
Happy Halloween Strip and sentiment matting: Adornit by Carolee's Creations
Green (behind spider's web): Stamping Station- Lime Green Swirls
Sentiment Stamp: Stampendous Cling Rubber- Trick or Feet
Spider's Web: Inkadinkadoo- Creepy Crawly
I also added some purple skittles and diamond, lime green and yellow stickles.
oh, and I almost forgot about the spellbinders die cuts!

Now check out this fun little guy!
I got the idea from the fabulous DeeDee Campbell over at Scrappin' with DeeDee. For instructions on how to make him please visit her blog. She makes amazing cards and is a constant inspiration to me :) This reminded my husband of the christmas dolls his grandma used put out every year made of folded magazines. Hmmm, that might be a way to recycle all of those dated craft magazines that have piled up in the corners of my closet.

Paper strip pumpkins Anyone?

I like these because they are more seasonal and I can leave them out for all of fall. Which by the way hit us like a brick wall two days ago :( I got the inspiration for these from an example at the store I work at, Scrapbook and Stamping Memories, stop in and visit us and see all of the other ideas we have! These are easy peasy to make and quick too. Cut strips of paper 1 inch wide and ink the edges for definition, punch holes in the same spot on every strip on both ends. Use a brad and pile your strips on then stick a piece of ribbon on top before you open your brad up. Now bow your strips up and bring your ribbon through the hole from bottom to top and tie in a knot at a length to keep the bowed form to the strips. Spread out your strips and adorn the top with a pumpkin stem and some paper thin paper strips that you curl around a pencil. I attached the stem and strips with some zip dry glue, I am in love with that stuff.

Last but not least a fall card

Carrying on with the festive mood I've been in the past few days is a fall card. I decided to make my own patterned paper for this one. To do this I used versa mark and some Stampendous embossing powder. I thought that the changing of seasons sentiment on the front of the card was perfect for the weather we had yesterday with a freeze over night.

The supplies are as follows:
Stamps: Inkadinkadoo- All Hallow's Eve (pumpkin)
The Angel Company- sentiment
Hero Arts-Friends forever- embossed swirl (on background)
Double Mates- Chocolate Malt
Archivers- lime green and Bazzill-orange (don't know specific color name)
green, lime green and copper
Stampendous- stampin' stuff stardust embossing powder
Tombow markers.

Ok now my never ending post will end :) I hope you all enjoyed looking today!
