Bats, Mummies, and ........


This is the second of three Halloween cards I will make this year. This one wasn't so scary until I added the ghost corners. Yikes!! They remind me of something I saw at our Lowe's last night. It was a 16 ft. inflatable reaper with red eyes. It was really scary and I was ready to get out of there. Ha It looked as if it would almost reach the top of my two-story house.

I love this big pumpkin die cut by Tim Holtz. I cut him out (out of the box) and added some Distress Crackle to him, then embossed with a Distressed Stripes embossing folder. I then added my leaves, bats, mummies, and sentiments. Have you tried the new Momenta cut and emboss die cuts? They are so thin but do a really good job. I wish I could have made my photo larger and you could see them embossed on the leaves better.  This is it on SCS. Hobby Lobby is carrying those dies now.

Tuesday Throwdown #167 is having a challenge called Colors of Fall so I'm entering this card.

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is Anything Goes.

I used snippets for the bat, mummy, and behind my ghosts so I'm entering the Pixie's Crafty Workshop challenge -Pixie's Crafty Snippets Playground -Week #92

Now for my long recipe:
Stamps-Bat is Hampton Art set SCO581, Mummy and sentiment are by Craftsmart (no name) I think they are from Wal-Mart

What a cool and fun Halloween card! I really like those corners and especially that cute bat! I can see the texture on the leaves and it looks really neat, but where have I been? I never heard of Momenta cut and emboss die cuts?? I'm losing my touch! LOL

Brenda, this is fab-U-Lus!My DH will love it. Especially enjoyed your added embellies on the punkin too. I have not seen those dies at H/L. Will have to check when I get home. No H/L in So. Fla - at least round here. Stamp stores are scarce too. I did see some new Sizzix thinlets at H/L on my last visit. Hope the game went your way. TFS & Hugs

Agh! Those corners are scary, Benzi! Somebody will love this! My grandsons love the scary! I can see the embossing on the leaves. I'll have to take a peek at those. My wish list is groaning!

Di said...

Oh what a fun card Benzi! Great use of snippets. I spent ages looking for a larger bat which I thought would be the 'bat mummy' - and then spotted the bandaged mummy. Definitely need to get out more here! :)

Hugs and thanks for joining in the Playground! Di xx
