Some people celebrate Halloween and others don't. I myself look forward to it and really love to make Halloween cards. There is just something about the color combinations that really speaks to me. Plus, it is a chance to stamp monsters, which is always fun.
Today I am sharing the Halloween cards from my upcoming 10 in 10 Halloween class on Friday, October 24th. We will make all ten of these quick and easy cards. I hope you can join me!

For this particular card, I wanted to do something that was a little nontraditional. There are no bats, cats, or witches. I just took some trees and added a really big moon behind them. There is just something eerie about a really big full moon.
To make the card, I stamped the Spooky Trees (H7759) onto white cardstock with black ink. I then added a circle mask where I wanted the moon to be:
Next, I sponged the sky with Distress Inks (Stormy Sky, Seedless Preserves, Concord Grape, Black Soot):

To make the card, I embossed the Darling Dahlia (H8715) onto 140lb watercolor paper with white embossing powder and then colored it with one color of Peerless watercolor paint (Arbutus Pink). To make some areas darker, I just added more of the paint. To finish the card, I added the Hello greeting (A3759).

So, I have to admit that when I was designing this card, I was planning to use the new "You've Been a Blessing" (C13226) saying, which was perhaps a bit more in the "friendship" category. However, I have several friends that could really use a "perk up" card instead. So, for my friendship cards, I made cards that I am currently sending to my friends.
To make the card, I used a paper kit from the Paper Cut. Why not let someone do a lot of the cutting and layering for you? I stamped the background over and over with the Coffee Beans stamp (D13230) and added the Perk Up saying and the Coffee Cup Stamp (C13231). It was hard to take the picture, but the coffee cup is on the inside of the card and can be seen through the window. The saying is popped up with some foam tape.
Very simple card and good to have as an emergency card for a friend who needs a little pick me up.
