A little BOO!

It's that time of year, my favorite! The leaves are changing, the air is getting cooler and everything has an air of festivity!

When I make cards, I find it so much easier to design a car from someone specific. It gives me a change to think about my friend or loved one and I can focus on their likes to make a card from the heart.

This Halloween, I came up with some cute cards for the kids in my life. They range from simple for a baby to a more detailed card for a teenager. Here they are:
My daughter has always made a Build A Bear to send to her baby cousins when they are born.
I love this card I made for the gift:

I used found papers, this adorable Stampendous stamp and watercolor pencils to color it in. The background is Crafters Workshop stencil with Pan Pastel, Tim Holtz distressed inks were used on the edges. I literally made this card in 10 minutes.


Materials used: found papers, Basic Gray paper, Stampendous stamp, Technique Tuesday stamps, Close to My Heart stamps, Tim Holtz Distressed Inks, Tattered Angels and other found materials
