A Couple of Halloween Cards

I have to admit I'm not really into making Halloween cards as Halloween isn't something that we celebrate big time over here. It's only in the last 10 years or so that people have been getting their kids dressed up and even that is rather hit or miss. I would say probably the kids in their late teen's and early 20's are enjoying dressing up and having parties. And very young children are now being taken around just within their street to neighbours they know dressed up.

Cards are not exchanged as far as I know so even though I made Halloween cards I didnt have any sentiments other than the ones I used last year 'Trick or Treat' Smell my Feet' which didnt work with these cards so I looked at other sentiments I had that could work as well and I really liked how these turned out.

My cards are fairly plain, I have seen some of the most amazing cards with brilliant backgrounds and scenes but I have settled for pretty CAS. These stamps are from a set I bought on line for $5.00- cool hey. They all come as separate parts you stamp and build a body.

So here we have a Zombie with a bit of leakage, a glowing pumpkin
and a bodiless cat saying 'hi'.  Fab sentiment 'Let's get together' for
Halloween or any occasion and finished off with this brilliant Washi tape.

My next card I decided to use three Characters from the set. Just love Frankenstein 
and stamped him and the Zombie and the pumpkin and then The Vampire -ooops
he looks like he is tangled in the pumpkin and that glow is shining right up his bum.
Must be getting pretty hot, probably why he looks the way he does or it could be because
Frankenstein has his fingers stuck right in his face, probably up his nose. too graphic? Sorry!!

All coloured with Copics. This one is finished off with some glitter ribbon on the side
and a few sequins in the Halloween colours and a perfect sentiment
"We're all quite Mad You'll fit right in".

Again perfect for Halloween or just some other occasion.


We're all quite mad here!

Lets get together

I think the second card  picture & sentiment suits
 your challenge perfectly
'We're all quite mad
You'll fit
right in'

Halloween is a stressful time, I never know whether someone is going to come knocking, so I have lollies on hand ready to hand out... but I usually end up eating them myself (although I 'try' to wait til after the night though).

OH Aileen, this cards are adorable!!! super fun and colorful too!!
The sentiments perfectly fit each one, this set you bought must be lots of fun to play with.
I love Halloween, when my grandchildren were little, I waited for them to come to our house all dressed up and say "Trick or Treat" Grammy.
Here Halloween is always a big thing, the problem is the weather, if it's to cold or raining, the little children don't come, or they wear their heavy coats on top of their costumes, which is sad because they are really cool.
Thank you for sharing with us at SHOPPING OUR STASH Aileen, hope you come back and play next time.
Hugs, my friend.

In Scotland it was always a big thing and was called Guising (as in disguise). My little ones will be dressing up and going down the Terrace getting too many sweets and will get sick. Great fun! Lol!! I never usually make cards either, but I've been enjoying a Sugar Pea Designs set I bought. I really like how your Mummy is leaking...... urgh!!! Xx
