Skeleton Scarecrow Halloween

So one of the girls at work wanted a Halloween card for her mom that likes scarecrows. Free Dearie Dolls has a ton of scarecrow images. She just happened to have this skeleton scarecrow and the girl said it was perfect. Then she said “make it spooky”! Well this is as spooky as I could get with the spooky cute image! She loves it so that is good! I used Sketch #4 from the October Card Sketch Challenge.

Cardstock: Bazzill (Pumpkin patch, Raven, White)

Halloween Birthday

I went to the retirement home to see if any of the ladies needed Halloween cards. One of them needed a Halloween Birthday card for her grown grandson. She still wanted it to be Halloween themed.

I got out my Halloween supplies and found this mummy from an old pack of chipboard stickers (6 years old) …there was no stick left to them anymore!!! I found KI Memories (spooky) die cut embellishment that was basically a big purple square with a green small square in corner. Well I didn’t want purple for a boy so I took the ideal and made it in colors I liked. Embossed the background with Cuttlebug Happy Birthday so it tied in the birthday part. I did learn I need a new Birthday embossing folder that is bigger and maybe no flowers (even though these are mostly abstract). I used the sketch #3 in the October Card Sketch Challenge. The original sketch can be found here http://casethissketch.blogspot.com/2016/05/case-this-sketch-171.html
CHALLENGES:
1) October Card Sketch Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – sketch #3
2) October Inspirational Card Challenge – photo inspirational category – went with theme Halloween

SUPPLIES:
Chipboard stickers – Cosmo Cricket (Matilda 2010)
Bat Rain Dots – Cloud9 Designs (Happy Halloween Bats)

So my husband was setting up my new computer so I went into my scrapbook room with the sketches from this months Card Sketch Challenge and grabbed all my Halloween embellishments and paper. I grabbed a pack of rubber (yes, rubber from 2006) Halloween embellishments from All My Memories.I also had some paper scraps leftover that worked perfectly!!

I used Tuesday Morning Sketches #371 for my inspiration.

This is for sketch #5 of the October Card Sketch Challenge @ Scrapbook.com. I think that was my last big piece of scrap paper of the candy print.

This is also for the October Inspirational Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Photo inspiration category – halloween.

This is also for the October Inspirational Card Challenge – Photo inspiration category – Halloween theme.

This is for Sketch #3 (original sketch Case this Sketch #171 ). This is not my favorite out of the cards but it works to brighten someone’s day when they get to their mailbox! I also used old old We R Memory Makers Flocked Lace (Black Out Halloween Web). Very CAS card which is unusual for me!

I found that this We R Memory Keepers paper matched with the embellishment so I used it on two of the cards.

Inside: It’s All Organic!!!

As I was searching for sayings and inspiration on Halloween I came across this saying and cracked up. This is sooo my best friend!! She is into oils, home remedies, etc. (and I am sooo NOT) so I knew I had to send this to her!!! She isn’t into Halloween but I think it will make her laugh. I love Halloween….what is better than acting like a kid, being silly, dressing up and eating candy!! I don’t do the dark Halloween….I like the fun cutesy side of Halloween. That’s why I kept this card fun, bright, cutesy Halloween even though there is a cauldron. And she will be shocked there is a bow as I don’t do many bows. But when I saw this sketch with the little tag I knew it was perfect (I was struggling with how to put that saying on the front and this sketch made it so easy!)  I used a die cut from Miss Kate Cuttables (I took out one of the green layers and bubbles). I used MOJO Monday Sketch #468 for my inspiration.

CHALLENGES:
1) October Inspirational Card Challenge – Photo inspiration category – use the photo to inspire…went with Halloween, witch theme.

As soon as I saw the September Digi Bundle at Gerda Steiner Designs I knew I had to have it with this adorable puppy dressed up as a ghost! Then I had to bat my eyelashes at my husband to color it up in Photoshop. What was so cool is I didn’t give him any certain colors to use and this is what he came up with…the cool part is I had 2 sheets of this Doodlebug paper that matches perfectly!! I used MOJObella Sketch #9 as my inspirational.

Yo Ho Ho Happy Halloween

Deedee’s Digis is sponsoring the Clear it Out Challenge which is Halloween (or use Black and Orange). I went with the Halloween theme but in the end used black and orange only so I did both without even trying! This card is for one of the guys at work to give his mom as they are big Basset Hound lovers so I was super excited when I saw this image.

Yo Ho Ho

In my stash I found the dog bone paper clip and chest charm which I thought was perfect. The paper is also YEARS old so the only thing new and modern on this card is the image! I used Tuesday Morning Sketches #271 as my inspiration.

CHALLENGES:

1) October Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Favorites Category – used Tuesday Morning Sketches #271

2) Clear it Out Challenge – Halloween (or use orange and black)

3) Use Your Stuff #158 – Pet / Animal challenge. Not one of our dogs but there is a guy at work that has a standing order of Basset Hound cards for his mom.
