Halloween... Make it Monday to the rescue!

Finally I got inspiration for something for Halloween... And it came from MIM from Papertrey ink, the moon!

Although I don't own the Perfect Pearls powder, I do have the spray! SO I made the stencil and used Distress inks to sponge the colors using the stencil for the shape. Then I sprayed the Perfect Pearls directly on the moon shape. Using the heat tool, it dried pretty quickly. I didn't use a stamp for the craters on the moon rather the shades of the yellows and the way it dried.

I hope the picture does it justice! It is also on darker paper than what was used on the video, but I love the results!

The dies I used; PTI Mighty Oak, PTI Superstition, PTI Pumpkin Patch and I sponged in the white and added eyes. The last pumpkin is attached with orange fun foam after hole-punching the eyes. All of the other die cuts are just glued on with a runner. Look at that Moon! So amazing!

On the inside I added some of my favorite stamps..


SU Halloween Hoot and SU Booglie Eyes are still my most favorite Halloween stamps!  I'm promising myself a new set next year... maybe...

Here's the rest of the ones that I made..



I ran out of the darker paper, not even sure what color it is! So I had to use a lighter paper and I don't think it's as good at showing the moon colors.  I also noticed on the video that she "polished" the pearls... and I did that too, even with the spray. Wow! Did it bring out the shine...

Hope the grands enjoy my cards to them! With John off to a World Series game, (yes- our son got tickets for Citifield for them to go- what a treasure he is!), I am hopeful that I get to give candy to two of our families...

Happy Halloween!

Great Halloween cards with that gorgeous moon. How clever to back the pumpkin with orange fun foam.
