Halloween Spooky Greetings Card - Spellbinders



Spooky Halloween Card with Scroll Work - Spellbinders 

 Getting my Halloween cards in order.  This year my three Gray cats, "The Grays" will be assisting in the celebrations thanks to Spellbinders. 

I'm combining two collections to create this card: 

Here are images of the dies used today: 

 Open House Boo! Etched Dies from the Halloween CollectionCelebrate Scrollwork Card Builder Etched Dies from the Holiday Medley Collection by Becca Feeken


While this isn't the likely combination, it's festive and fun and my three Grays are hosting the Halloween party.  

I thought Becca Feken's Celebrate Scrollwork Card Builder Dies from the Holiday Medley Collection  would make a surprise tag/card for the scrollwork base.  


Below is the hidden surprise awaiting when the tag is removed.  


The card was embellished with some flat sided, faceted crystals from Buttons Galore's new Jewelz - crystal embellishments "Jet Black" JZ129 also found in the Jewelz Halloween Mix  While there are many interesting and sparkly elements to the Packed Powder shaker mix,  I only needed a few crystals for this card. 





The cards today were created using the paper from 
Echo Park - Halloween Party Collection - 6 x 6 Paper Pad

Below is an image of the front and back of the Spooky Greetings tag.

Christmas Cactus DIY Cards - Spellbinders 

 I have several friends and family members who adore the Christmas Cactus and look forward to when it blooms. Since I have a paper thumb and not a green thumb, I need to stick to paper cactus.  

Fortunately for people like me,  Spellbinders new floral collection by Susan Tierney-Cockburn has a fabulous Christmas Cactus die that is easy to make and customizable. This is part of the new  "Susan's Holiday Flora" collection.  She even has vases, baskets for her flora collection however I used a die from another Spellbinder collection as the vase.

The paper collection used in this card is from Maja design in Sweden.   The paper I chose for this card is from Maja Design's "Winter is Coming" Collection. 



The cards are embellished with some flat sided, faceted crystals from Buttons Galore's new Sparkletz shaker and embellishment mix called "Packed Powder".  While there are many interesting and sparkly elements to the Packed Powder shaker mix,  I only needed a few crystals for this card.

Winter Pinecone Cards - Spellbinders Susan Tierney-Cockburn ( Video)

 


Seasonal Pine Cone Cards - Spellbinders 

 I'm getting a start on the winter season and trying to focus on cards that have a stronger feel to them - something I can send my sons who live in Colorado.  While they appreciate getting cards from mom, it's nice to not have a ton of flowers and lace on them.  

  Spellbinders new floral collection by Susan Tierney-Cockburn has a fabulous pinecone die that makes a beautiful card that easily stands alone as the strong focal feature.  Wait....I just said no florals please.  So just stay with me here.  I started this post saying I didn't want flowers and yet I'm talking about a floral collection.

I made two cards from the collection - one with snow and one without.  My husband prefers the snow covered card and I prefer the one without snow.
