Simon Says ,,,,,,, Halloween :-)

Thanks for all your fab entries to our lovely photo inspiration challenge :-) this weel we are joining in with loads of other challenges and have
HALLOWEEN as our theme too ,,,, lots of chances to combine !! :-)

The DT have all used embossing folders on their creations this week but you don't have to to join in ,, we would like to see embossing is you hav them though :-)

As usual Heidi will be giving one lucky entrant a trolley dash around her fabulous Simon Says Stamp store ,, every time I pop in I am amazed at all the new stuff available ,,, so many new brands ,, I LOVE the Popcorn Bears and SWALK stamps and have you seen these new Laurence Attril for Stampavie stamps ,,, GORGEOUS !!!

I decided to amke a card and a little sweetie bag to go with it ,,, all the liquorice allsorts have gone now lol ,, I love them,, especially the plain black ones :-)

For my card I followed the fab sketch on the Sketch Saturday Challenge Heddi very kindly sent me a few of these lovely Studio G halloween stamps. They appear to be out of stock at the mo ,, not surptisingly as they are only $1 each !! I am sure they will ba back in store soon :-)

For the haunted house I first made the background with distress inks , Spiced marmalade, dusty concord and black soot, then the house was stamped with Archaival black ink and rhen sprayed with silver glimmer mist. The papers are Magnolia So Spooky paper pack and black/grey coredinations. I used a Cuttlebug distressed stripes folder ,, which is also OOS ,, am not doing very well this week !! I am sure it will be available again soon :-) I used a Tim Holtz Ticket die cut and Halloween stamp from the Odds and Ends set Everything was inked with the distress inks :-)

I cut the little bag on my Cricut . Ths cute ghost is also a Studio G stamp. I cut him out and smothered him with Picket Fence Crackle paint and dirtied him a bit with black soot ink.

Challenges :
Sketch Saturday,,, Sketch
Shabby Tea Room ,,,, Vintage Halloween ( the house is pretty vintage :-))
Lexi's Creations ,,,,, Spooky

I will agree that any house that is that black and slightly run down looking is scary! I mean I wouldn't trick or treat there. The ghost box is super cute!
