Halloween card

Here is a Halloween card i've made using High hope stamps. I love this witch stamped image she has such a cheeky smile so she must be a good witch . I coloured the images in using my whisper pens.
The high hope stamps i've used are, Sitting Witch Poo & Pumpkins. No tricks. Pumpkin Fall boader.

Happy Wednesday fellow bloggers, it's Whats on your work desk wednesday  again number 125.
I'm getting a head start with making up the Trick or Treat bags ready for Halloween night .
I've been stamping using the halloween stamps i brought from Micheals craft store in America. I picked these stamps up from the dollar rack.
The Black , Brown & Orange card were in my scraps of bag so this project was a good why of using up some scrap card. So you might notice that not all bag tops have been cut to the same size.
I used my Martha Stewart cobweb punches on the card as well .
The bag nearly full of sweets we got from a recent trip to Florida where we attended Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom where you get to go to lots of trick or treat  stations dotted about Magic Kingdom with your bag & the cast members put handful of sweets & chocolate in your bag.
I brought my goodie bag home with me & thought it would be a great idea to make up trick or treat bags as i'm not going to eat all the sweets we were given.
The Skeletons, & heads i got from Wilkinson last year .

Halloween Tag

My Halloween tag for my friend .
First i ink the cobweb  folder from  Tim Holtz's texture fades halloween & cobweds set , with Distress ink Rusty Hinge, placed some yellow card in the folder then run it through my Big shot Machine. Doing this put ink only on the imprint of the cobweb.
Then i went over the card with a little rusty hinge & then  Crushed olive from the distree range to darken the card.
From tim's other texture fades Halloween Night & Poison set i embossed both onto white card then cut round the skull & coloured with rsty hinge again & red. I coloured the cat black & cut out the image to use on the tag.
The other embellishments are martha stewarts halloween.
The Black head with the arms is a plastic one i got from a packet last year from Wilkinson, i stuck some gold gems in the eyes to make it look more scary. To finish off my tag with some wool &  black ribbon as well .

It's been quite a few weeks since i've been on my blogg & joinned in with Julia's What's on your workdesk wednesday.
I'm in the process of making Apples out of strips of christmas fabric. Bottom right of the picture is the shape i'm using & it takes five cut out pieces of fabric to make one apple, & four smaller pieces to make the leaves.
