Halloween Cards

I am in a card swap and we make 5 cards each month.  I got a head start on my cards for Halloween and these are what I made.  The cards need to be the same or very similar, so if you wonder why they look alike, that's why! 

I used the cute BRAND NEW stamps from Punkin' Patch Stamps (go check them all out!) and some cheapo ones I found at Walmart.  The set I used from Punkin' Patch Stamps is called Little Monsters.  These stamps will be available very soon!!  

The ribbon and brads are also from the 97 cent bins at cute!!  I used quality, textured AC card stock because I wanted a "canvas" look and I didn't want the stamps to completely stamp, so they would look "old".  I stitched the sides using my sewing machine and distressed the edges using my good ol' fingernails.  I used different colored chalks to do some random coloring.  Cute and simple cards for Halloween!


  1. got them up....awesome.....LOVE LOVE will have to do more to send to your friends at Halloween. And, yes, yeah for the Walmart $1 bin.

  2. So cute! I would keep these forever!

  3. These look great! I really like how you turned the stamps into a background image as well as the main image. Great job on distressing your papers and inking!
