Halloween Card

Here's a little something I had hiding on my hard drive. Figured I'd better put it up before the spooky season passes.

The pumpkin stamp was one piece, but I lobbed the top off with a scalloped oval Nestabilities and filled it with candy brads by Making Memories. I had a lot of fun with it.

Other supplies:

Spider web background: Silhouette design
Stamp: Little Yellow Bicycle and Papertrey Ink
Ribbon and cardstocks: Papertrey Ink
Brads: Making Memories
Nestibilities by Spellbinders
Striped paper by Making Memories

I have a couple questions in my comments section about a few of the designs I've used over the last couple weeks. Both the spider from my wall vinyl post and the envelope I used for my Grandmas are Silhouette designs. I can't link over to the direct images because they aren't online, but I can tell you the file names so you can run a search on your Silhouette software.

In other non crafty news, got a few book recommendations for ya'll. The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane is the perfect book for Halloween. I found it a bit hard to get into, but loved the ending. Plays with the idea that some of the accusations during the Salem Witch trials could actually have been true. Not that they were, this is fiction folks. And just finished Sarah's Key after looking at it in the Target book section for over a year. Books on the Holocaust are never easy reads. This one is no different. But it is something that needs to be remembered. I'm very glad I read it. Riveted for the day it took me to devour it.

Ooh, before I forget....another Nazi book that is really good My Enemy's Cradle. Put it under the hard-to-believe category for historical fiction. Those Nazis ran a breeding program to increase the population of Aryan children. It was a woman's duty of reproductive age to make Nazi babies, even if they weren't married. True story. This is the tale of a secretly Jewish woman who is placed in one of these "gestational houses" while preggo. Very good. Go forth and read!:)


  1. OOOH - so the 'photo holder' was actually an envelope! DUH. I kept searching my silhouette library for a photo holder, holder, photo ... all sorts of keywords. Duh again. lol.

  2. Can't wait for my silhouette to arrive so I can PLAY. I will make sure both those files are in my library.


  3. This is really cute! I love the background!
