After a trip to Michael's...

...where I bought two sets of Tim Holtz Sizzix Halloween dies and embossing folders, on sale for 60% off, I made a card.

The base card is black card stock and I used the other half of the sheet to die cut the images and verse (Tim Holtz Sizzix "Trick or Treat Combo").
Using a piece of white card stock, my Tim Holtz sponges and Distress Oxide seedless preserves and black soot I sponged the background.
Once it was dry i ran it through the BigKick with the embossing folder from Tim Holtz Sizzix "Hocus Pocus Combo" and applied it to the base card.
I glued all the die cut pieces to the front and a piece of white card stock inside and the card was finished!

In the light of the haunted moon...


The base card is black card stock with a strip of grey (sidewalk) card stock on which I stamped the "haunted" from Impression Obsessions "CL489 Don't Lose Your Head" with StazOn jet black ink.
The "moon" is the die cut circle from...

The pumpkin from the same Impression Obsession set is stamped onto white card stock, the face I drew in with a Faber Castell PITT black pen and then colored with teal and grey Prisma pencils.

The teal pumpkin is for allergy safe houses...

I trimmed out the pumpkin and applied it and the moon as per the sketch to the card front.

Spooky kitty...

Two posts ago I had a links for coloring on black with Prisma pencils and I just had to do it again.
This time the challenge picture, upper left corner, lead me to the pumpkin patch at night.

This card starts with a white base card and a layer of orange card stock.
The main piece is black linen card stock, I like colored pencils on linen, with images from Stampendous "Cling Create Fall" heat embossed using Versamark ink and clear embossing powder.
Then it was on to coloring with the Prisma pencils before taping it to the card front.

Simplicity in pink...

This clean and simple card is made with a white linen base card corner rounded on two opposing corners.
The verse is stamped with StazOn jet black ink using Paper Smooches "Critter Card Puns".
The kitty is stamped with the same ink using Paper Smooches "Vhummy Chums".
The coloring was done with Prisma pencils.

So my son loves candy corn...

The car is black card stock that I colored with Prisma pencils as I saw in this tutorial...

On the left hand side of the card I stamped the candy corn from Lawn Fawn's "HYP? Candy Corn Add-on" set using Versamark in k and clear embossing powder.
Once it was heat set I colored the corns using the Prisma pencils.
To finish I stamped the verses from the same set using Versamark ink and white embossing powder and heat set it.

Clean and simple isn't always a white background!
