Well, it's an exciting night in our house. Papertrey release night! I am stalking the website to participate in all of the fun. I hope I win the big package tonight so I can get all of the wonderful goodies. In case I don't win I have my list ready to place an order but I had to make some hard decisions and some things will just have to wait for another month. While I'm waiting I thought I'd share a couple more Halloween cards with you. These also use the new Papertrey Halloween Tags set that was released last month.
Although it looks black in the photo I actually used Smoky Shadow ink for the card base and the graveyard border punch. I stamped the decorative circle from Spooky Sweets II onto Spring Moss cardstock and then cut it out with my Nestabilities and distressed it a little. Then I stamped the Boo tag onto the plaid paper from the Autumn Abundance collection and layered it over a ribbon on top.
This card came together very quickly. I find that having a small child in the house and very limited time to create, I want to get as much accomplished in my time as possible so I am going for simpler cards when I have to mass produce for holidays but I still want them to have some pizazz. For low fuss but a nice impact I have been trying to use up more of my decorative papers. Plus I can clean out some of the giant stacks I've accumulated and make way for more Papertrey stuff! I simply layered some cute K& Co web paper onto my orange zest cardstock and then topped it off with one of the holiday tags and embellished with some ribbon, buttons and rhinestones. Easy peasy! I hope you enjoyed my projects. :)
