Halloween Handfull Halloween 4-11

Inspired by the ever so talented Leslie at The Crooked Stamper, I entered mass-production mode and cranked out some Halloween cards using scraps from a recent project.  I did manage to even chat with my tweeps on Twitter!  Stampin' and chatting!

 No full piece of paper was used!  I did have to cut the bases but that's a given, right?  I can't do as many as fast as Her Royal Stampiness but I tried!  Heh.  I LOVE Halloween, so I was enjoying every minute of it.  Plus I used a TON of scraps and some other goodies.  I also opened my Pewter SU embossing powder- and OMG I LOVE IT!  I bought it last winter,  and it sat neglected until now.

So, on with the cards:

This one I did to follow along with the current challenge at Dynamic Duos- to use black and lime green. In real life, the green circles are more of a lime green. I dunno about my camera skills.  Simple- embossed with cuttlebug embossing folder, added some bits and voila. Of course now I realize I have orange on the sticker. Oh well.  Won't be entering that one lol.



Finally used the skeleton scroll embossing folder on the skull one above. Love it!  I also used my crimper for the orange strip!



These circle ones are from Clean and Simple- current sketch.  I realize too that maybe the witch's hat makes it not CAS.  Oh well. Great sketch!


The mummy one didn't photograph well, but that's nothing new. It was fun, and I got to use googlie eyes- always a win in my books. I know, I am kinda sad that way!  The other was because I had to use kraft somewhere.  I get nervous if I don't use it every so often.  Martha Stewart sentiment stamp.

Most of these had Basic Grey Eerie scraps, some are from Magnolia papers. Misc cardstock and most embellies are from the Dollar Store.  Now I just need to finish the insides.

Ok now I need to clean up and recover. I plan to do this again with scraps from another project- this time I will be using Spice Cake papers by SU.
