Two Halloween Cards!!

With the two little Halloween stamps I have, I came up with two cards. Linda (a2zscrapbooking Supplies ) asked me to guest design for their blog. a2z Scrapbooking Supplies sells high quality scrapbooking supplies from inks, stamps to edger punch! Here are the two cards I made for their blog.  The 1st one is called Boo
BOO
1. Stamp house in Versamark and emboss in white on black card stock
2. Cut the house and set it aside
3: Distress the pumpkin color card stock with Antique Linen
4: Run the bottom through Cuttlbug with Bubbles folder
5: Use hard surfaced sponge and lightly colored the pop-up bubbles
6. Stamp the ghost images in black and cut them out.
7. Place all pieces and plan out for space to sentiment
8: Stamp BOO with the Alphabet set and trim and layer them in squares.
9: Apply Glossy Accent on the eyes of ghosts and the letter BOO
Hero Arts stamps: CL138 Bird Branch alphabet, CM004 Ghost, CG 182 Two Houses
Others: Embossing Powder (Zing), Cuttlebug ( Bubbles folder), Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Antique Linen), Versamark Ink (for embossing)

Others: Embossing Powder (Zing), Stickles, Glossy Accent (Ranger), Raffia, Tim Holtz (Weathered Jeans), Marvey/copic makers, Versamark Ink (for embossing)
