Now, on to the projects! I created these cards using my current favorite stamp set, "That's Creepy!" 

Halloween stamps and papers really call to me, even though we don't celebrate so much now that my boys are 17 and 20. Still, I love to play and be creative with the images and colors.

All three cards use kraft cardstock and Teresa Collins "Haunted Hallows" patterned papers. "BOO" tags are from my stash. You can see more cards like these, along with my current in-stock stamp sets and purchase your own card kit including all the papers, cardstock, embellishments, and stamp set at my Etsy shop. Watch for a new Christmas kit, coming soon!



Hope you found some "Creepy" inspiration! Before you go, leave me a comment and become a follower of my blog, and you'll be entered to win another of my favorite stamp sets, Gingham Christmas Greetings!  



Now, head on back to the Chick Challenges blog to complete the hop. Be sure to leave a comment there, too. Thanks for stopping by!
