Bobblehead Ghost

I made this Halloween card for one of my grandsons, using Bobblehead Ghost from Bugaboo Stamps.  I coloured the image with Promarkers and added Glossy Accents to the orange on the eyes. The edges of the paper were distressed with an orange ink pad, the sentiment was computer generated and placed on a scalloped oval die and the gems are from my stash.

As You Like It Challenge – Favourite Halloween or Autumnal Colours     (I like Halloween colours better as they can include orange, green, purple and black and I enjoy making Halloween cards for my grandchildren.  I don’t think Autumn cards would have quite the same appeal for them..!!)                                              http://asyoulikeitchallenge.blogspot.com/2018/10/favourite-halloween-or-autumnal-colours.html

Winnie and Friends

It’s a while since I used Winnie on a card and I thought my youngest granddaughter might like this image of Winnie riding on a polar bear.  It’s a digi from Polkadoodles called Winnie and Friends.  I coloured the image with Promarkers, added Stickles Star Dust to the little tree, fussy cut around the image and placed it on the card with foam pads.  The papers are from Nitwits and the snow base was made using a cracked ice embossing folder.  I put Imagination Crafts Cracked Ice Glitter on the die cut tree and Stickles Star Dust on the stars.  The sentiment is embossed with silver embossing powder.

Halloween Window Cat

This Halloween card is for one of our grandsons.  I took my Halloween cards and the Christmas ones for our family and friends in the UK when we went to see our new baby grandson.  I left the family ones with the appropriate family and stamped the friends’ Christmas cards to be posted in December.  It costs quite a bit to post from France to the UK – so I reckon I’ve saved over €40 this way.  It’s meant making Christmas cards over the year so far – but worth it for the saving…!!

I used the Bugaboo image – Halloween Window Cat – and coloured it with Promarkers.  I fussy cut around it and cut a moon with a circle die.  The spider paper and confetti bats are from my stash and the sentiment is computer generated using Chiller font.
