Howl-o-ween Treat! (and a bit of Christmas, too!)

This set of cute cards uses the Howl-o-ween Stamp Set, as well as some fun accessories found in the new Holiday Mini Catalog.
This spooky card has the sentiment embossed on some Vellum Paper and cut out by hand to give it a kind of "floating" look.  The skeleton is also embossed with Basic Black Embossing Powder.  Black Glimmer Paper adds a few highlights!  I just love the look of those Spider Web Doilies on top of the Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper.  The cute bow comes from the Handpicked Framelits set!

This is one of my favorites!  The Boo! comes from the Boo to You Framelits Dies set and the spiders are embossed with Gold Embossing Powder on some White Vellum paper.  The Boo! is cut out twice; once from Gold Foil paper and again from White Vellum paper, to give a shadow effect.  The Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper stands out with a bit of Tangelo Twist paper behind it.  Wouldn't this make a cute candy bar wrapper?

This is the very creatively Christmas version of this stamp set.  Our cute little owl transforms into Santa Penguin!  The Witch's hat becomes a Santa hat and the scary skeleton head turns into Santa's sack!  How cute is that?

The snowy background is created with a couple of strips of torn Whisper White cardstock and the background is Smoky Slate card stock embossed with the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  The raised dots are highlighted with a touch of the White uni-ball Signo Gel Pen.  Merry Christmas!
