Happy Halloween


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the Anything Goes Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
We will be back soon with the name of the lucky winner of the $50 Voucher
This week the challenge is

Halloween Inspiration

the lovely Jenn Shurkus has made us this fabulous Inspiration Board to use. We don't necessarily have to make a Halloween creation, we can use the board however we like
This week we are showcasing our very own Simon Says Stamp Products  You don't have to use them for the challenge but if you have them we would love to see them used.
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

I vowed not to get into the Halloween Hype especially over here in the UK although the shops seemed to be convincing us we should. But I don't myself I wasn't going to buy anything special for it in the way of card making, so I had to think out of the box.

Yes I did buy some fall papers these ones are Echo Park Fall is in the Air and the side border I used Simon Says Stamp Scallop Stitches. I used Simon Says Stamp Stitched Ovals for my pumpkin. There are three all together and I inked round the edges to give them more depth.

Quick check to see if any of my Simon Says Stamps Halloween Stamps were still available and their Not so Spooky has this fabulous spider so he had to be used with some googly eyes. What I really got it out for was for the sentiment which I stamped the Halloween word and then cut it out using Simon Says Stamp Stitched Banners but I did cut it in two places to make it smaller and the join is under the pumpkin.

To finally finish I need a leaf which I used Simon Says Stamps Oh Happy Day stamp and die set and the Happy is from their Painted Happy Birthday die.

I love the sketch design which I will used again its from Splitcoast Stampers Card Sketch#612

So now it's YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting

  21. A very gorgeous card Debby and so creative ! The same here in France, we don't do Halloween either , it is more a commercial matter than a custom dating since a long time ago ! May be they will succeed with the new generations ! Anyway, for a non "halloween" fan, you just managed to do a stunning card with all what you had ! Congrats for that and thanks for sharing !
