Fall and Halloween Cards

Even though it is still very much Summer time, I've decided to move on and get started on some Fall and Halloween cards. I call this first one Piece Out. The pumpkin pie is on the loose. The paper I used is from American Crafts and the brown nestabilitie shape is just the back side of the pattern. The pie is from the new set Happy Fall from Stamping Scrapping. I added a little bit


of liquid applique to make the whipped cream a little more puffy, some decorative buttons, and my favorite accessory- googly eyes. This next card is a little more traditional. I used the scarecrow from the Happy Fall set this time as well as the bushel of pumpkins. I made the leaf brad with my easy brad maker from Chatterbox by cutting out the little leaf from the stamp set with the punch from the brad maker kit. I also colored the brad with a dark brown copic to make it blend in a little more.
This is my Halloween card- Best Witches. This time I used the Best Witches set from stampingscrapping.com. This set is adorable for Halloween. I added the witch legs and hat to the pumpkin and popped them up off the card with foam dots. I also used my new drippy goo Martha Stewart punch for a little added border. I think it's perfect for a witch card.
