5 Days of Halloween - Day 1 plus Blog Candy

Hello stampers!!!! Welcome to another Monday!!

This week i am going to be featuring a Halloween card every day for the next 5 days.  Halloween is right around the corner (along with all the other holidays) and though Halloween may not be a holiday that you traditionally think about sending out cards for there is always someone that needs a little "trick-or-treat" in their mailbox right?

Today's share is one that i made using some punches and my Chevron embossing folder.  I don't know why but this folder just screams Halloween to me!!!  My card measures average size of 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4" and i chose the Wild Wasabi card stock.  For my background i used my Chevron Folder with a piece of Basic Black card stock, inked up my Chevron folder with VersaMark ink, ran it through my Big Shot and then heat embossed my newly embossed Chevron design with my Tangerine Tango Embossing Powder.

Do you recognize this little guy?  Yup, i used my Owl Builder Punch for my ghost.  Just snipped off his feet (don't worry, it didn't hurt, lol) and then added some eyes.  That simple.

For my pumpkin i used my 1 3/4" Circle Punch and my Large Oval Punch.  Ran my pieces of Pumpkin Pie card stock through my Big Shot using my Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder to give them their "skin".  The item that i want to showcase today is the Halloween Hello stamp set, which is what i used for my greeting today.  Here is a closer look:

Now, on to some free stuff!! Yay!!! I feel the urge to host another Blog Candy!!!

So here is how it is going to work, this Blog Candy is going to be going on for the next 5 days, the length of my 5 Days of Halloween.  All you have to do is leave a comment at the end of this post sharing with me your favorite Halloween costume that you have ever worn.  That's it! I will post a special post on Saturday announcing the winner of this:

A brand new, never opened (or mounted) wood mount retired Toxic Treat stamp set! 

Well, that's all for today.  Until next time folks...
Happy Inkin'

  1. My favorite Halloween costume that I have worn has to be of a Greek Goddess, because I felt like a goddess wearing the costume, even if it was for just one day. I made the costume myself, which was the best part.

  2. I was a red crayon one year! It was my first costume that I had ever made and it was super cute!

  3. Ha, one year I put on a black trash bag and stuffed it with crinkled up newspapers and went as an olive!
