Halloween is around the corner and I’m sharing my favorites today!
From years past if you look around this time of year on my blog you will see Halloween gets a heavy dose of love.
Halloween has always been a favorite holiday for me to create.
Of course when I tell people that Halloween is one of my favorites some people look at me like I’m crazy.
Why in the world?
Halloween is perfectly inline with my beliefs about creativity. I love watching little ones creatively use their minds to dress up and use their imagination. That’s it. Nothing spooky about it… just pure CREATIVITY.
It’s exactly what I do when I create with paper. I get to dress the card up and use my imagination.
Halloween images are cute, even though they have the spooky tendency. Personally I do not see anything FOR REALZ spooky in a Halloween stamp.
Truthfully, they are spooky adorable. The spooky tree is not going to give me any nightmares and though I’m not a fan of any bat, the bat images are SO adorable.
Four Favorite Halloween Products
Below are four of my favorite Halloween products this year.
You will notice that one is not considered a Halloween product. It’s an everyday (all kinds of uses) product, however its PERFECT for Halloween.
I’ve placed all of my favorites on this one Halloween card to show you how quick and easy you can create a fun Halloween scene.
In general, these are my four favorite Halloween products today…. tomorrow is a different story.
- Halloween Scares stamp set
- Spooky Fun Photopolymer stamp set
- Halloween Scenes Edgelits Dies
- Lots of Labels Framelits Dies
The Halloween Scares stamp set let’s you create a fun halloween scene. When paired with the Spooky Fun stamp set, you not only have fun Halloween images, but now you can use the Halloween greetings.
The Halloween Scenes Edgelits Dies create a fun addition to your Halloween card and the not so spooky tree is one of my favorite.s
The true favorite and most widely used of the Halloween favorite bunch is not even a Halloween related product.
The Lots of Labels Framelits Dies creates the perfect tombstone. You could make your own graveyard with all the different sizes available.
I loved how I could die cut the smallest framelit to create a tiny tombstone for this card.
Another favorite about the Spooky Fun Halloween stamp set is the fonts used. I love how slender they are. Making it easy to add the greeting to a banner.
Let’s not forget the cutest one of all… “eek!” That little greeting cracks me up!!
- The splatter was created using an Aqua Painter and Perfect Plum Ink. Simply load the Aqua Painter with ink, tap over images using bone folder.
- The moon was stamped and then gently sponged over the image using a sponge dauber and Delightful Dijon ink.
- Attach the tree die cut image using Mini Glue Dots.
Which are Your Favorites?
I realize this holiday (if we can even call it that) is not a fan favorite for all, but I hope I could give you a little inspiration on a few favorites of my own and why this spooky celebration ignites my imagination and creativity.
What are your favorite Halloween images? Do you have a favorite product this year? OR… do you think I’ve fallen off the pumpkin truck?
Regardless, I would love to hear from you.
No, I don’t have anything creative to keeping a good clean house… but I do have some great deals and of course some promotions I don’t want you to miss out on.
