Happy Hauntings

It's a bit early for a Happy Halloween, but I wanted to go ahead and share my Halloween cards.  Both of these were works in progress–I did a little work, set them aside, then went back and added a little bit more.  In the end I was quite pleased with how they turned out.

This first card came from the Tim Holtz Apothecary set.  I heat embossed the skull, then masked it to add the writing in the background using Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  For the top embellishment I stamped the image onto white cardstock, applied Vintage Photo using my mini ink blender tool, cut it out and distressed the edges using a pair of scissors.  I ran it through my Xyron, then affixed it to the front of the card.  Similarly, I stamped the oval design onto white cardstock, applied Vintage Photo, then cut it out.  I used dimensional adhesive to attach it to the front of the card.

For this card I heat embossed the spider web (Hero Arts) onto the orange cardstock.  I heat embossed the message (Tim Holtz) onto black cardstock then attached it with dimensional adhesive.  Finally I stamped the spider (Hero Arts) on white cardstock, cut it out, matted it with black cardstock, and adhered it with dimensional adhesive.  I topped it off with some Glossy Accents on the eyes.

I hope you enjoy these cards.  If you're interested in purchasing either one, they are available in my Etsy shop, Mommy Moon Designs, along with other designs.

Happy Hauntings!
