Ghosts and Goblins Fall Frolic Blog Hop

Hi Everyone,
SNS Ghosts & Goblins Fall Frolic

If you arrived here from the creative Shanna's blog, then you are in the right spot, however if you didn't,  then you may want to start at the beginning at the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog, to be eligible for some great prizes.

Sparkle N Sprinkle's September specials are all about Halloween, Thanksgiving and Fall along with Artist Diane Arthurs, and some embossing powders and coordinating glitters as well. They are all marked down 15%. Click here to see all of this months specials.

Today I am sharing with you 2 cards that I made using two new Halloween sets.

My first card uses stamps from set 470 Candy Corn Halloween.

Stamp Set 470 Candy Corn Halloween

This set is one of the 2 newest Halloween sets in the Sparkle N Sprinkle line. Love the witches in this set. There are 3 witches to choose from and I chose Candy the Sweet Halloween Witch. See that glittery black background, I made my own glitter paper and its so easy. Click here to go to the Tips and Techniques area on the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog to access the video that shows you how to make your own glitter paper.



Directions to make this card can be found here

For my last card, I used an image and a sentiment from Stampette set - 471 The Good Witch, the other newest Halloween set

Stamp Set 471S The Good Witch
Isn't she pretty!!

Barbara, those are two very elegant Halloween cards you've created. I especially like the second one.

Wonderful cards! I love the sparkle on the first one and the cute broom on the second!

Debi said...

Your cards are lovely. Love the purple border on the second card. Really frames your colored image nicely.

Shanna Shands said...

The homemade broom is awesome. I thought about making some large ones with candy on the inside similar to yours just not fully cut out. Great idea. I really love your border using the good witch stamp.

Brenda said...

Love your glitter paper background and the frame on the second one is gorgeous!!! The "bats in the round" is a nice touch and love the blue background on the second one too.

Julie Z said...

By putting the first witch in a circle with her broom, I feel like asking her if she wants to go for a spin(lol)! The broom on the second card is cute.

I like her grey hair. The glittery purple border is lovely. The broom is a nice touch. I'm really curious how you made it. It didn't say in the gallery description.

Barbara, what great Halloween cards. Love all the sparkle on both, and the little broom on the second card is a wonderful addition.

Your cards really inspire me to make Halloween cards. I thought the glitter paper you made for the first one was a fabulous background for a spooky card, great idea. The whole card was very well balanced and eye pleasing. I loved the 2 circles with Candy, the sweet witch, gracing the middle of the circles and having freaky bats fluttering all around her. Your second card was great, too. I would never have thought to color the witch's hair gray, but it makes perfect sense since it fits in with the idea of an eerie Halloween. However, then you colored her scarf at the top of her hat and on her dress pink turning her into the good witch that she is. Good thinking went into the making of this card. I loved the broom handle anchor for the tag with the saying, too. Serenity1944

I like the "real" broom holding the tag by the good witch. Think the "batty" circle framing the witch in the first card is cute.
