Halloween Silhouettes

Happy Wednesday, peeps!  We had rain and rain and more rain yesterday, and you would think that would wash all the pollen away, but I was really feeling the effects of all my allergies...yuck!  I didn't feel like doing too much, but I did get a couple more Halloween cards made for a couple of challenges!  The Double D Challenge was to use a silhouette (I LOVE silhouettes); 

the Shopping Our Stash theme was Halloween, and the (PIN)spirational Challenge had a Halloween board too:

Isn't that a cute photo?  Anyway, I pulled out probably my all-time favorite Halloween image of these little silhouetted trick-or-treaters, put it in my Stamparatus and inked it up with Stazon ink, then stamped it on a piece of Halloween paper:

Aren't they so vintage-y cute?  

I added a couple of sentiments and a few light Halloween postmarks, which unfortunately can'be seen, but they add a little vintage interest as well.  

I added a Basic Black mat and mounted it all on a Crumb Cake base, then added this sentiment (another favorite!):

For my next card, I recently won some Bugaboo digital stamps; I haven't used anything digital for a long time, but I thought I would give one of their Halloween images a try; I printed this on another piece of printed paper, and didn't add one thing to it...totally clean and simple, LOL!  I really like that you can size the image, but I wish it had printed a little blacker!  The sentiment is a CTMH one:

And on the inside, a few more CTMH stamps and a Recollections "trick or treat" on Mango Melody:

That's it for today---thanks for popping in!  Enjoy it and be blessed!

You can't go to Disney without giving Micky a hug!

Sorry to hear the rain is playing havoc with your allergies, but loving all the creativity that is the result! Two cute cards but my favourite is definitely the vintage silhouette- adorable! Almost as adorable as the photo with Mickey Mouse - dare I say Wayne seems even more excited to meet the Mouse than Cassidy, looking at his grin!

These cards are super adorable, LeAnne! I'm not sure which one I like more! And I love the inside as well! This is what I will be doing today as I need a few Halloween cards for my gang! Time is running out! TFS! These cards just make me smile!!!! :)

Both really cute cards LeAnne...I love silhouettes. Easy and yet so adorable.

Vicki said...

Your cards are fantastic, LeAnne! I love the vintage children image stamped on the dotted paper. Super simple and cute. I can see the postmarks! Thanks for joining the Double D, "Silhouette" Challenge.

I always love seeing this parade of trick or treaters, LeAnne! I love the inside sentiment too. Both of these stamps are keepers! I like your idea of stamping and printing on DP. Perfect for these Halloween cards!

This reminds me of my childhood days trick or treating. When we would go out after dark and it was safe. We would go in groups of our friends and stay out late. Everyone looks like they are having a blast. Thanks for sharing it with us at Double D "Silhouette" challenge.

If I had time, I'd love to go through all of your posts to count how many stamp sets you! These cards and your technique is great. I am partial to the children one. I haven't done much with digital print outs as the paper always jams and I don't know how to resize. When I get home, maybe I'll practice. I agree, Wayne looks pretty happy!

I look forward to those tricksters of yours each year, LeAnne! They've become my favorite, too - along with the inside sentiment - too cute! LOve the stamping, or printing on patterned paper!!
