Hello Halloween!!

What do you do when you don't own any Halloween stamp sets? You improvise:-)

I am still using the four sheets of patterned paper from last years Bo Bunny Halloween release.. Lame, but you know, the reason I didn't buy any new supplies this year was because we don't celebrate Halloween in this part of the world. But every year I do make Halloween cards to send to my friends over in the U.S and other places where they do celebrate..

This is just one of the cards I made this year.. Super pleased with the finished card!

So my cheat was, to use mostly Thickers and use other stamp sets that have sweets and monsters etc.. Like the Life of the Party Birthday stamps set or the Monster Fun stamps set by Hero Arts. Their stamps are versatile like that:-)

For this card I paper pieced this really cute candy in orange and green to fit the Halloween theme. And the rest was just faux stitching and patterned paper. Don't you think the row of sweets are just adorable:-) Super excited to sent this card to someone!
