A Little Halloween Magic

Hi Everyone!

I am gearing up to go forth and make my way to San Antonio next weekend for my Halloween classes at Stamp Antonio Arts and I thought I would share with you the cards I will be teaching. I love Halloween next to Christmas it is my favorite holiday because there is so much you can create to celebrate. So for these cards I used Gecko Galz Midnight Hour digital Stamp set and a bit of other fun products to create them. I hope you enjoy them and please feel free to leave a comment I love knowing what you all think!


For this card I used Bo Bunny paper for my background, A digital stamp by Gecko Galz, orange ribbon I got at Hobby Lobby, and fabric tape and buttons from my stash.


For this card I started with more of the Bo Bunny paper in orange, black card stock, the stamp image is from Gecko Galz, May arts ribbon, two decorative pins I got at Jo Annes, 4 brass brads from Jo Annes and copic markers to color her in. I Also distressed the background with grey chalk.


Now for this card I A piece of Fancy Pants "Spring Fever" paper, a digital stamp from Gecko Galz, May Arts duel sided ribbon in orange and black, a Martha Stewart border puch and a star punch from Hobby Lobby, black bling and Distress inks in Vintage Photo and Wild Honey.


Okay so I love the musical Wicked and every year I do a little omage to it and this year it was this fun little card. The background paper is by basic Grey, then I punched a circle out using a 2" Marvy circle punch in black cardstock, the image is a digital stamp from Gecko Galz and I used Distress ink in Peeled Paint to color in her face. The purple ribbon is from Hobby Lobby and the clear drop I got in the jewlery section of JoAnnes. I also used Radiant Rain ink along her edge and the card edge and finished it with green stickles.


I love this card! I started with a great piece of red and black paper then printed out the raven stamp from Gecko Galz and surrounded the image with crepe paper I pleated. I inked the edges of the image with red and black colorbox inks and added 4 black bling one in each corner.


I started by layering on a piece of cream linen texture card stock and distressing with Vintage Photo ink then a piece of green crackle paper by Paper Studio which I tore all 4 edges and inked. Next I printed this amazing image from Gecko Galz which I tore and distressed. The boo I created in photo shop and strung across with a festive piece of twine.

I hope you enjoyed my cards and if you have the chance and are in San Antonio next weekend come by and check out one of my classes
