Spooky Halloween

Hello Memory Box fans!  Thanks for stopping by the What's In The Box Blog Blitz.  So far, you've seen two amazing card designs from Sue T and Linda featuring  new holiday images, and then a cool Halloween mini album from Pat. This afternoon I want to share a Halloween card with you.

These new images from the latest What's In The Box release are so fun! The stamps, the papers, the dies - ALL gorgeous!  Pair them up with the adorable new patterned note cards for a great look. 

For this card I layered new papers from the Nightfall collection over a distressed dots card. I stamped and embossed the new Vintage Halloween Words (G1802) in black over the new Index Card image (G1781) and cut it out. (There is an awesome new die to match this Index Card, but sadly, I don't have it - YET!) I also used Ranger's Perfect Pearls Sunflower Sparkle spritz to add a bit of shimmer over the words.  Creeping out from behind the index card is a piece of May Arts leaf ribbon. It started out white, but I sponged over it with black ink and also spritzed it with the Sunflower Sparkle spray from Ranger. I hope you can see a bit of the shimmer in this close up shot.


In the lower right corner I stamped the new Crow and Pumpkin (C1800) image in black ink. Orange and brown Spica markers from Copic were the perfect coloring medium to give that little extra sparkle to the pumpkin.

I am teaching this card in my What's In The Box Fall/Halloween workshop on Jul 15th and 16th at Ink About It. For more info on Memory Box Classes around the country, look here.

Quite festive! Love the creative touches of sparkle throughout the card!

This is a fabulous look! Love the tabs!

Great card! I love all the layers and that bit of leafy trim adds a nice texture!

Lori, this is great - I'll be quite happy with all Halloween items although the Christmas does make me think of snow which is good in this 90 degree weather!

Like others, I'm really digging the tags - so many uses!

Great card - Gina G.

Love the look of these new papers!

I have started to think about my Halloween cards and you have read my mind. Love this card. The pumpkin is so cute and turning the leaves black was brilliant.

What a great card - shimmer always adds a finishing touch. The index card is a great shape and I like the leaves along the side !

Love the way you made a layered card using the new paper products and stamps.

I can't wait to purchase all these Memory Box goodies! We wish Dave was headed to Ohio this year:( Maybe next year????

I love your Halloween card. I'm not into scary. Halloween cards. The new stamps, etc just keep getting better.

I love autumn colors, so your card is welcome right now in this heat! Promise of cooler temps to come!

Love the card : ) Thanks for all of the great tips. Love the new notecards and the fall colors!!

Just bought the pumpkin and raven, and the words, and much much more! Love everything!

I was never really into making Halloween cards...until I found Memory Box stamps and paper. Now that you've started making dies, I can't wait to see if there are any Halloween ones. Thanks for the great ideas.

I love background stamps and these vintage Halloween words would work great for my scrapbook layouts and cards. Great showcase.
