Halloween Easel Card

                                                      Photobucket

Wanted to try making an easel card.  I've seen so many cute ones.


Photobucket



I used Stampin' Up! cardstock and Designer Series paper.  The image stamp is also, SU!


Photobucket



The ribbon is from Michael's and the sentiment inside is from Pink by Design's "A Haunting we will go" set.
The shape border is a Martha Stewart Punch. I used black embossing powder on the image stamp.  Gives it a bolder look.  The finished card measures 4 1/4 x 4 1/4.  Hope you like!!!

Spooky Time-Owl

Here is the 3rd Panel for my Halloween Banner.  I used the same black background cut and used the purple diamond paper for the background layer.

Spooky Time-Headless Horseman

Photobucket

For my second panel, I chose the Headless Horseman from the Happy Hauntings cartridge!


Photobucket

Sorry the pic is blurry, but the lighter blue you see is what I chose to delete.  This did not cut, and gave me the layer for the background.


Photobucket


Here is the background on my Gypsy before I cut it out of the black paper.


Photobucket


These are all of the pieces for the Horseman and the background cut out!


Photobucket


Spooky sign ready on my G!


Photobucket

Cut them out of purple and orange cardstock.


Photobucket


A little embellishing, and here's the final product!!

Spooky Time-Vamp

Photobucket

I was totally inspired by the ladies who are doing the Blog Hop for the Specialty hospital for children with special needs.  They are making halloween banners and sending cards for all the children who are stuck, sick in the hospital. You should check out their hop!! 
Here's the link to their Blog Hop: http://www.cardmonkey-business.blogspot.com/ 

Well, I'm making my banner for my sister, who throws a big Halloween Bash every year! (I will be sending a card for the children, too.) It's always so much fun.  The adult girls and children always dress up, the men are too "grown up!" Ha!!  On to the project!!

Photobucket

Sorry, forgot to show pics on the G.  Used Happy Hauntings pg. 46 for the background. The black layer was cut after I used the G to delete the inside that was intended to be cut away to frame the haunted house, for the green layer, I used the same cut and deleted everything except the inside.

Photobucket

ATG'd together. You get a batty, background!

Photobucket

Here's my G with the images I plan to cut w/my E2.  I never use my cartridges.  My G is always my bestest helper!

Photobucket

Here's my mat, all papered up and ready to cut out my dashing vamp!!!

Photobucket

And here's the Count all glued together with a little embellishing!  Isn't he Charming, except for the fangs, and the blood.........

Photobucket

And of course, the finished product.  I used a Martha Stewart stamp for the Sentiment and SU Cherry Cobbler ink!  This is only one panel for the banner.  I will post them all, as I get them made.
Thanks for looking.  I hope you enjoyed.  If you have any questions, fell free to contact me.
