Of course I wanted to use some of my new products from the Holiday Catalogue and it was touch and go whether I was going to choose Hallowe'en or Christmas. There are some awesome stamps for both holidays. In the end I decided to play with my new Spooky Fun stamp set and the dies designed for the set, the Hallowe'en Scenes edgelits. I also used the Gorgeous Grunge stamp for some additional background. For my Designer Paper I took a piece of my black and white striped Neutrals Designer Series Stack and sponged it with the colours I would be using for the card: Pumpkin Pie, Pear Pizzazz, and Elegant Eggplant.
For the leafy spiral in the background I used a cute flourish die which I had bought some time ago. Underneath I added a circle of Delightful Dijon. On top of that I added a piece of Whisper White matted with Pumpkin Pie, on which I stamped the gravestones and the floating ghosts. Lightly sponging and distressing the paper added to the generally spooky atmosphere. Instead of a ribbon, I decided to add a spider's web (complete with a spider, of course) which spans almost all the way across the top of the card and then finished up with a bat in the right upper corner.
The little pumpkins in the set worked perfectly beside the main images, especially after I added a face to one with a speech bubble coming from it. Hallowe'en is a fun time. Great for ghost stories and dressing up. This set would be perfect for invitations to dress up parties.
I hope you'll check out the cards created by the rest of the Design Team at the Paper Craft Crew Challenge.
