Halloween Cards

Good morning again everyone! If you're Canadian, hope you've had a great Thanksgiving! Over the weekend I had another party. I wanted to show how much fun punches and DSP were, so we made this set of 3x3 cards. Sorry the picture's a little dark. As usual, I was working on things until all hours of the night. These cards were inspired by the great set made by whitetigers, here... .

These cards were made with the Batty for You set. The card base is Basic Black, with a square of Prints DSP in Pumpkin Pie, Certainly Celery or Lovely Lilac on top. The circle images start with a scallop circle punch from Basic Black, a 13/8" circle punch in the matching color of CS, the image stamped in black on white punched out with 1 1/4" circle and finally the image stamped again in matching ink and punched with the 1" circle punch. The last circle is popped up with a Stampin' Dimensional. Black grograin tied in a knot and "Happy Halloween" stamped in black are the finishing touches!

Because I knew there were going to be a lot of people at the party & we had mulitple projects (either the two card projects or a scrapbook page) I decided to make an instruction booklet for everyone. It was a life saver! As long as I can manage it, I will always print instruction sheets for parties now! Here's a look at the layout for that party... Loved this layout. It's so simple, still looks cool & uses faux stitching and circle punches. I really wanted to show everyone how great punches were at this party :) The bottom scallops were made from tracing the On Board Ginormous Pieces square scalloped frame. The patterned paper is from the Cutie Pie set and the page base is Night of Navy. I used the blue ribbon from Jersy Ribbon Originals. The alphabet is Well-Worn and the circle embellishments were made by punch a 1 3/8" Night of Navy circle, a 1 1/4" Bashful Blue circle & a 1" Whisper White circle . The images on the white circle are made using a circle from Polka Dots and Petals set in Bashful Blue and words from the Everyday Flexible Phrases set stamped in Night of Navy.

Hope you enjoyed this :)
