When I made all these Halloween cards, I thought I’d turn pictures of them into three blog posts.  Today was supposed to be the third one, but publishing 14 cards in one post seemed like too many!  So, here are a few more Halloween cards I made and my next post will be the rest of them.

I used paper, buttons and Waxy Flax from Close to My Heart (CTMH), shimmery silver paper left over from my wedding programs 9 years ago, and a fun metallic witch sticker from my most recent Craft Warehouse trip in Oregon.  The faint purple stripes were colored with Smooch pearlized accent ink but it doesn’t show up very well in the picture.

I used the negative part from that sticker (some would consider it trash) for this next card!  No, I didn’t grab each piece one by one.  I used some magic transfer sticky stuff from Scattered Pictures Scrapbooks, Rubber Stamps & More (also in Portland) to carefully bring each piece over to my paper.

Last year when I first used this stamp, I stamped it in black and hand colored everything.  It took far too long, so this year I took a short cut and stamped orange ink onto orange paper.  It feels like it’s missing something – maybe I should cover the spider webs in clear Stickles!

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.

  1. I love all your cards. The effect that you did on the witch’s stockings is a great idea. I’ll keep that in mind next time not to throw out some of the shiny stuff. Way to go!!!
