Halloween Boo

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop!  This week our theme is HALLOWEEN BOO….spooky ideas.


I immediately went to JAR OF HAUNTS for my card, it’s got some amazing images for a spooky card or treat.


Turned out pretty spooky, don’t ya think!  It was a combination of several elements that brought it all together.  First, the BRICK WALL EF was absolutely the perfect background.  I used Basic Gray and added shading with Archival Black ink.  I also added more dimension and spookiness with the spider web from SPOOKY FUN and the tiny spider included with JAR OF HAUNTS.


An ooey, gooey jar of spiders and a haunting jack-o-lantern added to the creepiness of the card.  I personally hate spiders so covering everything in spiders is spooky and creepy to me!  I borrowed the solid color stamp from the original JAR OF LOVE stamp set to give the color in the jar then added slime and colored it with a blender pen and ink pad.


Final couple of details that made this card so fun for me were the greeting and candy corns.  I thought I’d better have some kind of treat on the card with “spooky treats” written on it.  I just colored and cut out a couple of candy corns and used mini glue dots to tuck them in the corner.  The sentiment came from the awesome and must have set LABELER ALPHABET.  I stamped the letters in black on Whisper White all in a row then cut out each word.

I hope you enjoyed this spooky idea, I can’t wait to see what the rest of the Design Team did!  Below is a supply list so you can re-create this fun Halloween card for yourself!
