Last few bits of Hallowe'en stuff

I have finished all my Hallowe'en cards now and just have the witch's shoes to do as gifts holders (I did one here a few weeks back and love it!). These are a couple more cards and a home decor piece - I do have another one of these to paint, but just didn't have any more energy to do it today!

This first card is for Our Creative Corner's Challenge to use Certainly Celery, Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry and Early Espresso and for Sweet Sunday Sketch #90. I wanted a bright funky DSP for this card and couldn't find the right colours so made my own with Dot Spot and love it! My image didn't quite fit the sketch either but I think it's close enough.


Stamps: Dot Spot from PTI, House of Haunts from SU

Papers: Certainly Celery, Early Espresso, Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry

Inks: Certainly Celery, Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry, Early Espresso

Accessories: Eyelet Lace Border Die from PTI, Rich Razzleberry Taffeta Ribbon from SU

My next card is for Stacey's Curtain Call #53 to use Daffodil Delight, Basic Gray, Whisper White, Basic Black and Pumpkin Pie (which I swapped for PTI's Orange Zest instead to match the DSP better). I also used SC303 for the layout.


Stamps: Friendship Jar and Fall Fillers from PTI

Papers: Daffodil Delight, Basic Gray both from SU, Orange Zest, Stampers Select White, Halloween Prints DSP all from PTI

Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Accessories: Spiderweb Embossing Folder from Cuttlebug, Oval Nestabilites, Daffodil Delight Satin ribbon, Black Diamond Stickles

And this is my Hallowe'en wreath that I spent hours painting today! The actual wreath is made from MDF and was about £3 from Hobbycraft. I used acrylic paints to (painstakingly) paint it several times, then outlined each image and letter with a pen to neaten it all up, added some PTI ribbons and voila all done! We'll hang this in the window next weekend to wish all our trick or treaters a Happy Hallowe'en. I thought I would enter this in the Papertrey Posse's October Parade of Blogs, which was to make some Hallowe'en decor. Now you are supposed to use some PTI stuff and while I have only used their Orange Zest and True Black ribbons, I guess it still counts.

And that's all for this post folks. Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to come back and check out my last post for today on my other bits and bobs!
