Halloween Overload

Hi peeps!  Happy Tuesday!  I got a lot of stamping time in yesterday and bulked up my Halloween card supply!  I have so many Halloween stamps, I can never use them all but I put a dent in some of them!  My first card is for Fab Friday's color challenge and In(k)Spire Me's sketch challenge, since yesterday's was not really up to par---I totally forgot the sentiment!!:

So here we go:

I started with an older cat and jack stamp (I don't know the maker) and stamped it on a diecut circle of Pumpkin Pie and added some Poppy Parade shading.  It's backed with a Gorgeous Grape scallop and embellished with some purple bats (!!!!), and accented with some enamel dots.  I diecut the sentiment and adhered it, then ran it through the Big Shot with a retired Spiderweb embossing folder.  In hindsight, I should have made this card with thick white cardstock, I always forget how embossing folders make a card so wobbly!!  

Bright colors, but fun!  My second one used the outer edge of the circle that I cut from the above card (Lil' Inker Stitched Circles have stitching on both edges!)  I know the photo makes it look much lighter, but it is the same cardstock!  I can't resist this cute little trick-or-treater in her pumpkin costume...I stamped her in Memento ink and used SU blends to color her in:

I used some retired Urban Underground DSP for the background and mounted it on a Pear Pizzazz card that was stamped with some stars!  I added a banner, a little star embellishment and some enamel dots.  Isn't she cute?

And since this week's City Crafter Challenge is Halloween, I am playing along with it!

And speaking of cute, can you believe at National Harbor, there is a PEEPS store?!  There are only two in the US...one there and another in Allentown, PA.  I wish I had gotten a picture of the store, there were peeps everywhere!  I love to look at peeps but I do NOT like them....not a fan of marshmallows too much!  And I usually don't buy Cassidy souvenirs when I go somewhere, but I had to get her a peeps shirt:

She actually took off her Minecraft shirt and wore this one to school!  Me?  I wanted the little peeps bag!  So cute!  Thanks for popping in today--enjoy it and be blessed!

An adorable pair of Halloween cards LeAnne! I like that sweet little one in her pumpkin costume. Almost as cute as your sweet peep ;)

First thing I noticed was the bag! I, too, cannot even fathom eating a peep! The only way I'll eat a marshmallow is at the end of a stick, melted! Your cards are so cute. The reminds me of Pippy Longstocking. You do such a great job with your shading. Have a blessed day.

I'm with you all the way with the peeps... right down to the bag! But what a darling shirt for Cassidy!

Cute! I'm partial to black cats as we had one for many years and she was a pip! I like the shading on the pumpkin and the texture of the spiderweb embossing. Well done with the challenge colors. Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!
