Halloween cards and Trick & Treats are done and in the mail!

I finished up my Halloween Cards, 21Treat bags and 7 Tricks and got them in the mail today (some will be hand delivered)! I realized this evening I forgot to take a picture of one of the cards that I mailed off, oh well. Here are the last of the cards, the Tricks and the Treats. Now I can start focusing on Christmas and maybe have those done before Thanksgiving :)

This little guy came from Scrappy Dew's Halloween Palz Bundle Set

Now for the funny part of this card. Notice the little area for writing is on the top? Well I had not attached the cute little guy on the front yet when I was working on the inside. I used a pop up card from SVG Cuts Premium Pop Cards Collection, got the pop up attached, and then put on the area to write on. It's all glued down and ready to go. I close the card to attach the bat and discovered I did this upside down!!! Hmmm now what to do. I carefully removed the circle pop up and put it back on the other direction and then slapped on a bunch of stickers. LOL - salvage the card!

This digi stamp (Casandra) came from Simply Betty Stamps Spooky Hallow Collection. I used Crystal Stickles at the tip of her wand to create a little "spark"

I really do love this witches hat from SVG Cuts. I forgot to put the hat band on but it still looks cute! I used Perfect Pearls (silver) on the flower to give it a little more depth.

Hoping my granddaughter likes this one in pink!

Goodie bags -- 21 goodie bags! Now you must know that a 3 year old does NOT understand why he cannot have the candy that I was putting in all these bags!

The goodie bags cut file came from SVG Cuts Sweet Treats Bag Collection. The witch I made by joining a silhouette of a witch on to a plain bag file.  The tags are from SVG Cuts as well ( a freebie file!). The candy corn is from a necklace that I found at JoAnn's for a buck! I just clipped the string and took off the wooden pieces of candy! They attached real well with Glossy Accents

This bat bag is from the SVG Cuts files. The cat peeking out of the pumpkin is another wooden piece taken from a necklace that I picked up at JoAnn's for a buck!

Here is a shot of the other bag I used, this is a scallop cut out in the SVG Cuts collection

Now the TRICKS!

Each of the kids are getting one of these!

I took a piece of printed cardstock, wrapped them around a pair (or two) of socks and taped it together. Then I stuck two Halloween pencils down into the socks and attached the little topper. The topper was cut in MTC from my gallery of basic shapes!

Lets try this again

I guess my blog had a spasm and would not let me finish the last post. So here are the last few cards for tonight.

This cute card is from SVG Cuts Haunted Hemlock Cards set. In the top picture you can see the little cat I added to the fence. I used glossy accents on the moon and the windows with moonshine in them. 

This fantastic digi stamp (Morticia) is from Simply Betty Stamps Spooky Hallow Digi collection. Thanks to some great tips from Cheri at Graphicat Creations I was able to cut all the little areas of Morticia.

A cute chipboard embellishment finished off the Morticia card on the inside.

And this cute, cute, cute witches hat card is another one in the Haunted Hemlock Cards collection at SVG Cuts. I used 3D Crystal Color Lacquer on a plain white card stock cut out of the buckle. Love the way it looks wet. Some stickles on the stars to give a little more bling. 

Well that's it for cards tonight. I hope to get these and the treat bags finished tomorrow! I have a lot more things to be working on but have to finish up Halloween goodies for the family first!

And more Halloween Cards

I have been working hard to get the last of the Halloween cards made plus a slew of treat bags. Below are five new cards -- only five more to go!!! I have 9 of the treat bags done, 12 more to go! I'll post a few pictures of those when they are done. Hope you enjoy these!

I used the same spooky tree that I got from the MTC Gallery for this one. Pretty basic with a few stickers. Haven't decided what I am going to do on the inside yet LOL. I'm interested to see what folks think about this one. 

This is Marvin the Bat, he is so darn cute. I picked up this digi stamp and two others of Marvin from The Stamping Bazaar. I fussy cut around him (leaving a little white cardstock and used my bic fine point markers to color him in.

More Halloween Cards

Pictures of more Halloween Cards I made over the past few days -
For the life of me I cannot recall where I got the card front for this. It came in a set of three card fronts (the ghost, the skull and house both shown below). If anyone knows where these are from I would appreciate you letting me know so I can give credit to them for these card files! I cut the front out of orange card stock and then chalked and glossy accented the ghost. As I started to ink the edges of the orange card stock my three year old bumped into  me and I smeared black ink across the front, so I just added more smears LOL. A few blings to the front and I was happy with it.

Inside of the Ghost card is the "Boo" pop up from SVG Cuts. This is part of their Premium Pop Up Cards collection! The cat stamp at the top is one I picked up in a set of clear stamps at Joann's.

Again this came from the trio of card fronts that I cannot recall where I got it from. I love this card front. Simply cut out the main part in black and the moon piece in yellow and adhered to an orange card base! A simple pop up sticker "October 31st" and ta da!

Inside of the haunted house card is a simple dimensional sticker and scalloped frame to write on.

My 18 year old daughter will be getting this one - It is so her! LOL I stamped a spider web and spider on with "Perfect Medium" and then brushed over it with a silver "Perfect Pearls" to showcase it on the front. Again this is from the trio of card fronts that I don't know where I got them from :)

Inside of the skull card I used yet another file from SVG Cuts . This is a simple oval pop up from their Premium Pop Up Cards Collection. If you haven't checked these guys out you sure should. All their files are in SVG but they seperate everything so you don't have to do any breaking apart or such if you are a Make The Cut software user like me!

And here again is another card base from SVG Cuts. This time I used one of their Breezy Backyard Lever Cards set. The cute witch is from Rob over at Scrappy Dew . I made the "Witching You A" in MTC. If you want a file of the text let me know.  I threw on foam stickers of a bat and a cat to finish off the front.

Added some halloween paper from K&Comany and a couple of foam pumpkin stickers to finish it off.

Haunted Houses SVG and MTC files


Get the SVG file HERE

I created these two haunted houses last night to use on the card posted below. Hope you enjoy them. You get both houses in the file downloads.

Haunted House Card

I got this idea from Paper Crafts Magazine Sept/Oct issue. Using an A7 card as the base I cut 1 inch circles of 7 different papers. Starting at the top of the card base I placed the first set of circles and then layered on top working my way down the card base. *I ran out of colors for the gradient scallop and had already put my E away for the night so I used some additional circles of colors I had already cut at the bottom* The haunted house is one of my files. I will post it after this post. The tree is from the Make The Cut Gallery but a popular tree punch of other tree would work just fine if you don't have MTC. The bat flourish at the top was a free file from the fabulous Mary and Leo at SVG Cuts. Please leave me a comment to let me know what you think!
