Old Supplies turned into Cute Halloween Cards

Leave a comment


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.

Allmy Memories Halloween Design 1 Paper and rubber embellishments.
Misc rick rack, purple brad, Darice Argyle embossing folder, scor-tape, EK Success 1/16 pop dots,


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.

1) October Inspirational Card Challenge – product category – brads.

I used Try Stampin’ On Tuesday Sketch #290 for my inspiration.

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.

Valentine Birthday


Valentine Birthday

One of the ladies at the retirement home buys my cards for most holidays and then also ask me to make special cards from time to time. This time she asked for a birthday card for her niece who has a Valentine’s Birthday. I remembered making a card for a friend a few years back that needed the same type of card. I still had some of the papers left over, printed off the same cupcake image from Doodle Pantry and grabbed a new sketch and this is what I came up with! She loved it. It came in handy because I ran into another customer who needed one for her cousin.

I am so glad I played in Deedee’s Digis Monthly Challenge in November because I received this image FREE! And since I made a card with the December Image – Gingerbread Train I will get January’s image FREE. All you have to do is buy the image one month and play along….if you continue to play every month you will get the next image FREE!! And Deedee’s images are adorable!

I used MFTWSC154 as my inspiration. I turned it on its side…I like how the words were on there so that is where I got the ideal how to do this card.

Home with a Christmas Theme – like a house, birdhouse, etc..


Gingerbread House

This was such a fun challenges for me because it was different! I’m not sure I have seen a Christmas Challenge before that required a “house” on the project. Which I have bought paper in the past to make a Christmas cards with a home on it but STILL haven’t made them. This one I made unexpected when a friend came over to “play” for a couple hours. She brought over a cute 6 x 6 paper pad and asked if I would want to make a card using some of the paper. This card came to me very quickly which doesn’t always happen so I was very excited. I cut up enough pieces so she could make one too!  Thanks Judy for the paper!!

I hope you will take the challenge of having a “home” on your Christmas project and play with us at For Fun Challenges!!
