Spooky Sweets and Smell my Feet

Happy Friday! I have 2 Halloween cards for you today, hope you like them Happy .

Taylor from Taylored Expressions released her first stamp sets last week and when I saw these cute cupcakes on their Halloween Best, I just had to have it. My Trick or Sweet set came last night and I had fun playing with them.

I used Kristina Werner's card template seen here for this card. I printed the templates on a whisper white card stock and trace it on Basic Black and Pumpkin Pie card stock. The 3 cupcakes was stamped on a Whisper White card stock and the mummy and the cat was stamped on a separate card stock, cut-out and raised with stamping dimensional.

Stamp: Trick or Sweet from Taylored Expression

Paper: Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black and Lovely Lilac card stock from SU

Ink: Black Staz-on Ink and SU re-inkers

Accessories: Gross grain Ribbon, Dew drops and stamping dimensional


And for my 2nd card, I used Laura's sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You. I've been following their blog and been wanting to join in the fun and thought that this sketch was just perfect for Anna Wight's Hocus Pocus and Spooky Expressions Halloween set from Whipper Snapper Designs.

The sentiment and the witches legs are stamped on Whisper White card stock and water-colored using SU re-inkers, the witches hat was stamped on a separate card stock, cut-out, raised with stamping dimensional and covered it with crystal effects. The bats were randomly stamped on Green Galore card stock with VersaMark ink and I just have to add tiny googly eyes.

Stamp: Hocus Pocus and Spooky Expressions from Whipper Snapper Design

Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Green Galore and Lovely Lilac card stock from SU

Ink: Black Staz-on Ink and SU re-inkers

Accessories: Crystal stickles, Basic Black gross grain ribbon,googly eyes and stamping dimensionals
