Halloween cards 2017

These are my two cards for Halloween. I would of loved to make more but was sick for a few weeks and I worked. I did these two cards on my two week break.

 I used one of the Tim Holtz Halloween dies. It was a challenge. The paper I used is a few years old but I did find one that was similar by Reminisce. The stamp is from Graphic 45 Clear Stamps HAPPY HAUNTING.
I stamped on an orange cardstock using purple ink. Forgot the name of the background stamp, but I think any cool stamp would do. I used a deep plum ribbon from a chocolate shop. On the sides of the card I used Modge Podge with orange fine glitter mixed in. The image is a digi stamp.

Snow and Sparkle Thistle


Dry thistle
Blue and white paint
Very fine clear or white glitter
Glue spray for scrapbooking (or something similar)
Medium and small paintbrush to get into hard to areas of the thistle


Make sure you clean your thistle before painting them. I painted the tops of the thistle a very light blue (mixed white and blue) and the rest white. I let it dry overnight. Next, I place the newspapers down on the floor and place the painted thistle over it. I spray glue the tops (I do not spray glue the whole “branch”) and immediately glitter lightly each thistle. Do one at a time so you don’t have to redo them.

Note: you can do this on pine cones and acorns (or anything else that would look attractive). Also, my photos don't do justice as they are very pretty, sparkly and look like snow.
