"Crafty Secrets DT Challenge" - September Halloween

September 20, 2010

It's time again for another Crafty Secrets DT Challenge. For this challenge we are featuring the recent Halloween releases of Crafty Secrets. For this challenge I am featuring 2 Halloween Themed cards using The Costume Cuties Clear Art stamps. Once more Sandy has done an amazing job coming up with just the right images to create this stamp set perfect for Halloween.''

My first card is in the shape of a witches hat. I had so much fun creating this card. As you can see from the first picture below, I used the candy corn image to make the candy corn tassel at the bottom of the card. I just simply stamped the candy corn image 26 times, colored them with copic markers, cut them out, glued 2 pieces together and placed black string in between the 2 pieces. I then attached it to the bottom of the hat and added black pearls. After attaching it to the bottom I added some Liquid Embossing to give it some gloss.

If you lift the flap for the top part of the hat you have a sentiment that also comes from the same stamp set - "The Witching Hour"

And for the inside of the card I added some sentiments "Happy Halloween" and "Trick or Treat" witch also come from the same stamp set. The cute little innocent looking witch was stamped, colored with copic markers, cut and adhered with double sided foam. I also added a treat bag with some candies.

This second card is in the shape of a house. Once more I used the stamp images from "The Costume Cuties" and the "Halloween" Clear Arts Stamp sets. Once more is have the cute innocent little witch, then added the face of the moon and a witch flying on a broomstick.

When you open the door to the house you are greeted by a clown and 2 black cats.

Here is what the inside of the card looks like.

I sure hope you enjoyed these 2 cards I prepared for this special Crafty Secrets DT challenge. But that is not all, check out the projects of the rest of the DT members. I am sure that you will find more inspiration from them.
