First Halloween card of 2019...

After returning home from a month in Europe (I'll share some photos in another post), I finally had some time to get started on my Halloween cards.

My sister let me use her multi-aperture frame die to cut a few frames when I visited her last summer. I cut one in purple and several in white. I kept all of the aperture cut-outs to use, so on this card I took some of the white ones and colored them with my alcohol markers.

I used an assortment of die-cuts, stickers, sequins and a spider web border punch to decorate my card.  I also added some sparkle to my witch hat and dress and to the spider's body with a Wink of Stella pen. Can you also see that I added a little bit of definition to the witch's broom with a white colored pencil?

I used several stamps on the inside of my card, popping up the "Happy Halloween."

I think you can see in the photo on the right how the "Happy Halloween" is on foam squares.

It has taken more than a week for me to sort of get back into the groove of crafting.  There has been lots of catching up to do--laundry, grocery shopping, yard work, etc.

I've also had some catching up to do at the thrift shop where I volunteer, but I think I am beginning to get things under control.

I hope you are have a beautiful autumn (or spring, depending on where you are). Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

Don't you love the precut or rather die cut frames, just have to find the image that fits. I haven't made any Halloween cards yet, made some fall cards but no Halloween. Love all the elements you used on this fun card.

What a fun Halloween card! Perfect idea to color the white die cuts with just the color you want! I have that die too and have an idea for Christmas but I'll have to keep this in mind for next year.

Great card, Cheryl - how fun! It sure does take a while to get caught up on things, doesn't it?? Even being going for just a few days seems to take me a while to catch up. Your vacation sounds amazing - can't wait to see pictures.
