Happy Halloween!!!!

As promised I am back with a Halloween post:-) Some of you know that last weekend I was in Singapore celebrating my birthday, and as always what I looked forward to was shopping for scrap booking and stamping goodies at Made With Love.

They have a gorgeous shop filled with awesome stuff:-)! prices are about 2 to 3 times more than when I order from the U.S however nothing beats actually seeing the product and touch it while I make my decision.. ( My shopping is always online so I don't get to do that..)
I was like a kid in a candy shop:-)

Luckily though they had this major Halloween sale going on and I manged to get about 25% - 40% off on most stuff.. so the insane prices kind of balanced out and I treated myself to some things I had been wanting to get:-)

While I was browsing around, I found two sheets of awesome Bo Bunny Halloween paper, and I just needed to get them because they were too cute! I never make Halloween cards 'cos we don't really celebrate it in Sri Lanka, but I just HAD TO this time:-)

I dont have Halloween sentiment sets so I used the cute letters stamp set by Hero arts for my sentiments, along with some Thickers I picked up in Singapore, the sparkly silver is from the new Dear Lizzy line.

Can you believe these are made with just two sheets of pattered paper? ( they were double sided too) talk about value for money! I chose carefully and made sure they coordinate well when I purchased them..
And the best part is there is more left to make about another 3 cards!!

These wonderful die cuts are from my sweet friend Isa from France, she was kind enough to send me an awesome package full of die cuts, stamps and embossed papers for my Birthday so I was dying to use them as well...

I used my scallop punch to add some definition along the length of the card..
Oh and if you noticed, the sun came out and added a shadow to my last two photographs and I waited and waited till it went away, and when it didn't I just shot it as is... oh well...

I accented the spider with some silver and red Stickles, another little treat I got which I normally wouldn't get.. but seeing them up close really jolted me to buy them:-)
Don't you love the creepy red eyes? I used it on the bat as well..

So that's my post for you today!! I had so much fun making these:-)
Have a great day and happy stamping!

  2. Wow! Great cards, Michelle! You are much more inspired than I am!! This Bo Bunny paper is awesome! I haven't seen any Halloween scrapbook papers in local stores over here, that sucks!! :( Like you I had to order it online.

    Happy Halloween! Hugs :)
