A Weekend Of Halloween

Well our weekend was productive!  June and I made all our Halloween cards, played around with some new Dies, shopped at both of Oscars Rubber stamp stores and spent way too much money but.....we had a real good time.  Though our eating habits weren't the greatest I was able to drag June around to some special highlights of Door County.  (She's never been there)  Our adventure included the Door County Bakery for Corsica bread, Al Johnson's Swedish restaurant with goats on the roof for Swedish pancakes, The Door County Confectionery for un-needed but yummy candy (for us and the grandkids lol), The Yum Yum Tree for Capt. Baileys Ice Cream, Koepsels for smoked fish and cheese, and Kitty O'Rieleys for corned beef Mac and Cheese. Whew...I'm exhausted all over again!  Anyway......we made cards in the evenings between star watching (not for was freezing out!) and Kahlua! heehee.
Ok...back on track....First up.  Circle Flip it cards.

Super simple with the flip it die.  I think the only stamping we did to these was the Happy Halloween inside the card LOL.  Next up was a technique card.

We used black for the base and glossy for the 1 layer.  We first we masked off a border top and bottom then we stamped the birds on a branch and added a circle of yellow, then masked off the yellow to add orange around the circle as well as bringing some of that orange across the middle section.  Keeping moon mask on glossy paper we then swiped some deep purple covering over the orange and then added a little black to the edges on left and right.  Removed the masking tape from the top and bottom and the moon and then stamped Happy Halloween.  I really like this card and it's 1 layer!!   I'm going to be making more of this type in the future.
Well dinner time is creeping up so until next time....
