KS Monday–Happy Halloween


Hello and happy Kitchen Sink Monday everyone~

I wish the weekend lasted longer….I am not ready to start this week :( …maybe because we finally had rain that we needed so desperately and didn’t want to finish the relaxed weekend ;)


Since the weather is cooler slowly but gradually, I wanted to start making Halloween cards early so that I can start my Christmas cards earlier…that’s not guarantee but let’s keep fingers cross if it will happen!


I used Multi Step Owl & Autumn Moon for the tree, moon and bats. The witch is from Friends of the Moon and the greeting is from Ready 4 Any Holiday.

I stamped the moon on the glossy cardstock and simply stamped the tree. Then, I stamped the witch, bats and the greeting. The background was sponged with inks. The card was designed with the cardstock and the star patterned paper. To finish off, I embellished with the ribbon, button with black twine and rhinestones.

The moon was stamped as following these steps: 1st – SU so saffron (1 x stamp off), 2nd – so saffron,3rd – SU more mustard. The tree was: 2nd – SU early espresso, 1st – SU soft suede. The background was used SU not quite navy, SU early espresso, SU basic black, SU so saffron.
