When Ghouls Come Out To Play (by Asha)

Ghoul Morning, friends! It's almost that time of the year .... when ghouls come out to play. I have a couple of easy projects for you. All you have to do is ink and stamp - that's it. I also want to show you how well Chocolate Baroque's older Halloween stamps coordinate with the latest release.

My first card depicts a dark and creepy night where ghosts wander in the mist. I inked up the background with Distress Inks. The trio of ghosts in the foreground are from the new Put A Spell On You A5 sheet, which I heat embossed on vellum. The ghosts in the background is heat embossed directly on the card. The trees and greeting are from the new Hocus Pocus A5 sheet. The clouds and the single bat are from the older Spookilicious A5 sheet.

The second card is slight more "cheery" ... on account of a few smiling pumpkins. Again, I inked the background with Distress Inks and masked the moon. The pumpkins on the ground and the spider are from the new Put A Spell On You A5 sheet. I coloured the pumpkins with Faber-Castell Polychromos. You could even paper-piece these pumpkins and speed up the process. The flying bats and crow are from the new Hocus Pocus A5 sheet. The scarecrow is from an older A5 sheet called Witching Time. These stamps work so well together!

I hope you enjoyed these cards and will try making them. Be sure to stop by often for more frightfully fabulous projects from the rest of the Design Team. As always, a full description of products and tools will be available from my blog.
