Halloween Already?


Happy Halloween!  Um, I mean, Happy Wednesday!  Okay, so maybe I got a little ahead of myself for a moment!   It's hump day and that means it's time for my Purple Passion column over on MFP Speedy TV! It's also sneak peek week at Mark's Finest Paper, which means we get to see all the new releases.  Woot!


Although I almost never send out Halloween cards, since my kids are grown now, I just fell in love with the new stamp set this month called What A Scream...cute cute CUTE!  Plus, It's an AWESOME way to use my favorite color...PURPLE!


I had so much fun making this card.  I used the cute little Frankenstein face and the Happy Halloween sentiment from the set.  I dug through my ridiculously huge hoard stash of paper and found some cute Halloween packs I got on clearance at Michaels last year.  I used lots of different designs and my Silhouette Cameo to cut banners for the top of the card, and then hand cut my Happy Halloween banner at the bottom.  I also used my machine to cut the scallop and circle that the cute little Frankie is perched on.  The scallop is hard to see, but it's behind the white circle.  I had some Martha Stewart buttons form Kay & Co. that I won as blog candy a couple of years ago, and thought they looked perfect to "hold" the banner.


I made a black card base and found a cute little ghostie on one of the 12 x 12 sheets I had in my stash.  I thought he was adorable, so I cut the paper down to go inside my card.  I used the "Boo" sentiment out of the same MFP stamp set to make the little ghost talk.  CUTE!


Have a GREAT week and thanks for looking!

Happy Scrapping! ~Amy E
