Halloween Cards 2006

So as I stated in my profile, I started making cards in October 2006. I was in a hostess club for Stampin' Up! and thought I would give card making a try, even though I was an avid scrapbooker and usually just used my Stampin' Up! stuff in my scrapbooks. Since I was new at this, I did steal a lot of my ideas from Splitcoaststampers.com. So I can't take full credit for these ideas, but the ladies on splitcoast did help me out a lot to begin my "career" in or should I say obsession with stamping.
This was the first card I ever made and naturally it was for my "mummy." I had decided that I would only tackle a few cards for the immediate family members, just in case I didn't like it. Most of these cards are pretty simple, I used the "masking" technique (which I learned in my hostess club) on this card to overlay the mummies.



This "batty" card was also inspired by one on splitcoast. I just loved the Booglie Eyes stamp set as you will see by all the Halloween cards I made using this set.

  5. Lori, these are all so sweet! I need to actually get *into* Halloween stuff. We always have a huge gathering at our house that night and take the kids trick-or-treating. . . and I am not the biggest Halloween lover, so it's tough to plan decorations and stuff. Anyway, welcome to the blogging world!
