Halloween Cards

Halloween is just around the corner and the Halloween stamp set from Sweetpea stamps is just the answer for some cute cards.
On these first two cards I added a few embellishments to spice up the cards. I found some cute little halloween colored pom poms and added some to these cards.
The small bat stamp that comes with this set is great as a background as shown in the orange card, or stamped in the foreground as seen in cards that follow.

Here are 2 more cards ....
Once I pulled out my halloween colored cardstock there was no end to the combinations of cards that could be made with this set of stamps.
I thought the 'happy halloween' stamp made a great background for the other images.
On some cards you'll see some 'doodling' along the edges. When I had a card that looked a little bare or unfinished I found that adding a little border with a marker worked wonders.
Finishing touches like ribbons or colored gems also added to the appeal of the card.

How about these 2 cuties....
On both cards I used some self stick 'halloween-colored' gems to add a little glitz.
The little witch looked good when I framed her with a piece of black cardstock. I used a ticket punch on the orange cardstock which gave me the perfect space for adding the colored gems. The orange ribbon provided the finishing touch for the card.
I combined the bat boy with some of the decorative scrapbook paper on the orange card. I used the colored gems in the 4 corners of the card.

Had enough yet???
Here's the 7th card I made from the Halloween set. Once I started I just couldn't stop!
On this one I used a combination of decorative scrapbook paper, 4 of the halloween stamps, and some markers to spice up the card.
How can Halloween be scary when this set of stamps is so cute???
