Halloween is a comin



I received the card below from my friend, Rita Holmes.  Rita used Amuse Studio stamps, die cuts, card stock and designer paper.  Isn't it just the cutest card????  I love how she did it so that the top flap comes up (I should have taken a photo to show that).  The little ghost hides behind the scalloped circle.  And, under the flap, she stamped "Happy Haunting".  I just love Amuse's dotted and chevron card stock.

This set is in the new 2013 holiday catalog and inspiration guide.  It's on page 9.  Of course, if you don't have a catalog, you can always contact Rita or go to her website here.

Anyway, the stamp set is $16.99 and the die set is $10.99.  You don't have to use the same papers she did....but they sure are cute together.

We are taking our Granddaughter to the Pumpkin Patch in October and she is getting really excited and calls us more often than usual.  She just can hardly wait!!

So, I thought I would start sending her a card each week, building up to the day!!

I decided to use Rita's idea for my card.....seeing how I haven't ordered the stamp/die set yet, I had to use things I had around here. Believe it or not, I don't have a ghost stamp.  I rarely do Halloween cards except to send to my Granddaughters.  So, I used the Pumpkin Die set from Sizzix and then used stickers for his eyes and mouth and a ghost sticker and a Spooky sticker.

It's always fun to get a new card shape or layering idea.

Thanks Rita!!!

Have a great day!!!
