Spooky Thursday!!


Hello everyone!!! Halloween is just around the corner so I have been busy making cards for all my Grands and their friends, too!!  I went a little crazy buying Halloween washi tape so I decided to use it up!!! The Doodlebug Washi Tape was used on all the cards shown today.....The image from Taylored Expressions A Spooky View was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics. 


The Bracket Notecard die was used to cut the black layer, then it was trimmed to fit along the side as a mat for the picture....I love it when a die has several different uses!!!!
The sentiment is from the Halloween Doodles set from Taylored Expressions and the raven diecut from TE's Gothic Window Accessories Dies  and the twine finish it off. 


I also made a couple of little Halloween cards using the Bracket Notecard Die to cut the card base.  The wreath from Taylored Expressions Spooky Wreath set was stamped on pumpkin pie card stock and cutout with the Seasonal Wreath Die. The wreaths were adhered to the card base with foam tape and the washi tape and twine finish them off. 

Thanks for stopping by....have a wonderful day and I hope you find a little time today to do something fun!!!

Joan, I love your cards, I am a subscriber, I am a bad subscriber because I don't leave comments as often as I should, so maybe this makes this comment a gazillion times better because I am absolutely overwhelmed here! Genius! Every year I try to make my husband a set of thank you cards he can send to his 5th grade students after the secular year end break. :) Your Halloween cards are perfect! I can use the TE window scenes for winter and do something just as perfect and simple! The kids will love them, my husband will love them and everyone will be happy! Will you think I'm too forward if I say I love you right out here in public? :)
