Halloween Old and New

With Halloween only a few weeks away I decided that I would work on my Halloween cards tonight. I used stamps from Tim's Trick or Treat Set combined with images from this years Spooky Stuff Set.

As you can see the outside of the card has the skeleton and spiderwebs from the Trick or Treat set. I stamped the webs right on to a 6x6 gate fold card then used pewter Perfect Pearls to highlight the image. I stamped the skeleton onto manila paper cut them out and adhered to the fronts.

The envelopes are vellum that I stamped with the bird from this years Spooky Stuff set then embossed with Distress Powder. I love this technique on vellum. Gives it a rough, painted on look and feel.

The inside of the cards have a sentiment and image from this years set also.

Im pretty happy with the way they turned out. Let me know what you think....

These are pictures of my latest creations for a postcard swap on the All Things Tim stamping group on Yahoo.

You were to make and swap 4 x 6 postcards with a Dark and Dreary theme. As you can see I went all out with the dark part by creating a play on the old vintage "wish you were here" theme.

I hope the recipients like them. You can only see part of the back of one, showing the stamp I embossed for the postage. I only showed the corner for there is a special surprise message on the back for the members of the swap.

Let me know what you think.
