Halloween Cards

I saw this Surprise Freebie from KaDoodle Bug Designs ( on Facebook today and I decided to use it to make this card and the blue background card is also a KaDoodle Bug Designs and here's there Facebook addy (!/kadoodlebugdesigns). I'm entering both of these cards at Miriam's Crafting Blog ( as well. I used The Paper Studio Halloween Chevron PP, K&Company Greens Card Stack (as card base), The Stamps of Life Thanks2Fall by Stephanie Barnard stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black Pigment Ink- Happy Halloween/Trick or Treat, EK Success Earth Colors Memory (Colored) Pencils to accent the stamps that I stamped on white copy paper, American Crafts Premium Ribbon, Halloween Rhinestone Stickers, Yellow Rainbow bling (in the middle of each stamped pumpkin), I also used Copic Sketch Too 100 Black on the cat, Stickles Golden Rod and Crystal (over the fish), and Recollections Foam Adhesive Squares to make the cat/stamps pop and Scrapbook Adhesive Mounting Squares to adhere the paper to the card base.

I accidentally cut the back of the card when I cut the top sheet so I decided to take the cut half off and added the orange sheet from BasicGrey Curio 6x6 Paper Pad for the inside.

I attached this blue sheet from Authentique Gathering 6x6 Bundle to the back up under The Paper Studio Halloween Chevron and in between the card base with Scrapbook Adhesive Mounting Squares. I always write that I made the card on my cards and the year just as my trademark! 
I couldn't get these pics in order, so the detailed pics are first. This is also The Stamps of Life Thanks2Fall with an Orange Rainbow Dot in the middle and also stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black and colored with EK SUCCESS Earth Colors Memory Pencils and attached with a Recollections Foam Square.

This is a close-up of Stamps of Life Thanks2Fall Trick or Treat stamp, stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black, colored with EK SUCCESS Earth Colors Memory Pencils, and attached with 2 Recollections Foam Adhesive Squares.

This is the bear pumpkin that is also from KaDoodle Bug Designs. I made this card Tuesday and was going to do a blog post this morning about it, but saw the cat freebie and decided to wait and post them both at the same time! I also used Halloween Rhinestone Stickers and the American Crafts Premium Ribbon. The apple is fussy cut from a pumpkin/fall sayings sheet that I don't remember the collection because I've used it so much. I wanna say it's Recollections.The blue background paper is Basic Grey Pyrus 6x6 Paper Pad.

This is a close-up of the bear. I used EK SUCCESS Earth Colors Memory Pencils, ZIG Memory System by EK SUCCESS Hunter Ball 0.5mm pen, and American Crafts Basics Black pen to accent the leaf and just to add a little more color. I wanted to color over the KaDoodle Bug trademark/writing and I got most of it covered. TFL and have a great weekend!
