A Ghost in the Window

P1010605

Here's another idea featuring the Small Madison Arched Window Die - let a spook from the Memory Box Ghost Trio Die pop through the window.  The bright background from the Blackbird 6x6 Set makes it look like he's really jumping out at you...and he is!

A quick-stamped greeting of the Vertical Happy Halloween, trimmed like an exclamation mark, says it all.

Through the Window - and a Holiday Open House on Saturday

P1010548Here's a card introducing two of the great new Poppystamps Dies - Small Madison Arched Window and Walking Cat.  The window is cut from Licorice Cardstock and the cat from black felt. Attach the felt to a sticker sheet (or address label) before diecutting it - it'll keep the felt from stretching, and liquid adhesives won't seep thru it.

The background is a 3.75" x 5" section of the Dusk 12x12.  I punched a few holes among the branches and attached Scotch tape behind it - then brushed Honey Glow Glitter onto the adhesive in the holes.  

Stamp Perfect Halloween on Squash Distressed Dots with Midnight and ink the edges with Midnight too.  Attach everything to a Licorice Notecard - and coordinate your card with a matching Licorice Envelope.  Print the addresses on Squash Distressed Dots for custom matching address labels!
