Lockhart Halloween


Hi there everyone, is it feeling like Fall in your town?
The temps here in Austin have dropped about 10 degrees in both days and nights and it is actually feeling like a Fall season is upon us!
I made a couple of Halloween cards using some patterned papers from last year's stash and some current Martha Stewart papers.  Love these Fall colours and enjoying using up some of what I've got ;)


The stamps are Karen Lockhart and I purchased them at Ellen Hutson's.
The pumpkin cupcake is simply stamped with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto SU Pumpkin, cut out and placed on a Spellbinders Label die that was cut out from a SU black cs.  I added the orange woven ric rac at the bottom and some sparkly square mosaic tiles as embellishment.  The sentiment is from Pink Paislee.


This next one uses another Lockhart withes legs and I took this close up to show you the sparkly black on her stockings, dress edge and shoes that I coloured with a black Spica atyou pen.  If you click on the pic you can see how very sparkly it really is!
I had these little silver star and moon brads that I added in the corners over the existing stamped stars and moons.


The papers are mainly this year's MS from a 6 X 6 pad.
The border is an older MS border punch that I thought resembled the dress edge.
I did some simple black zig zag stitching on the main panel.


Hope you like these and are enjoying the weather...wherever you are!
Thanks for peeking in!
