Last year was the first year I made Halloween cards and I only made a few because we spent a good chunk of the month seeing Chicago and visiting my friend and my aunt in Illinois.  Here are the cards I created.  I had a lot less Halloween supplies, so I was limited.

It’s hard to see in the picture, but I colored the jack-o-lantern stamp with iridescent water-color paints.

This next card was colored with my ZIG markers and I like how the jack-o-lantern shows up better than the one in the previous card.

I made this card with Close to My Heart (CTMH) stamps.  “Happy Haunting” is difficult to see because I used silver ink.

When I was in Illinois, I went to my first Hobby Lobby (!!!) store and it was incredible!  I found this adorable witches legs & shoes stamp and made my aunt a card with it once I returned home.  I used my Cricut and the Design Studio software to weld the letters together for the sentiment.

So, even if you only have a few craft supplies, you can still make cards – I did so for years!  🙂  Thank you for reading my blog.

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.

    • Thank you, Brett (said in a New Zealand accent, of course)! I’m happy you enjoyed your card – a card from me to you was long overdue, I’d say!
