Happy Halloween!

Halloween is just around the corner! For my two-year-old granddaughter, I made a criss-cross card and painted the image with Stickles to give it an extra bit of sparkle. I entered the card in  My Time Made Easy Pretty Palate #32 challenge and in the TSG127 Theme Challenge,
which was to make a Halloween card or project.

Paper:  Echo Park; Ink: SU Old Olive; Punches/Dies:  SU Round Tab, Spellbinders Scalloped Ovals; Stamp: SU Greeting Card Kids (enlarged after stamping), SU All Year Cheer III; Accessories:  Stickles, Making Memories brad, ribbon from Michael's.

Halloween Heyday!

I recently finished making Halloween cards for my grandchildren.  Using a lot of supplies,
including two spiders that formerly were perched on top of a Halloween headband, 
 I created cards to give just the right amount of spooky delight!

My eight-year-old grandson will get this card. I got the spider web free at a local craft store
because it had fallen off of the display!  I entered this card in Paper Issues "31 Days of Halloween."

This card is for my four-year-old grandson.

My ten-year-old granddaughter, who loves anything purple and turquoise, will get this card.

I used one of the headband spiders for this card for my six-year-old grandson. 
 I cut the branch out on my Cricut.

Quilled Flower Birthday Card

My friend and I recently made the 80 mile round trip to Archiver's to check out the new Halloween and Christmas products.  While we were there, we made a free card using quilling.  Needless to say, we just had to buy some quilling supplies and spend a day trying to master the technique.

For my friend's birthday, I made a card for her and "quilled" a flower and some vines that mimicked
the flowers on SU's retired DSP, Cottage Wall.  The diamond fold card stands up for displaying.
