Adorable No Stamp Halloween Note Cards

I have two cutie patooties next door, and I thought I would make little cards to put in their Trick or Treat bags this year.

No stamping involved, paper is from the Doodlebug Design Boos & Brews pad that I have been working my way through for the last 2 or 3 years.

Supplies:  Paper – Doodlebug Designs Boos & Brews, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Taylored Expression Cookie Monster, organdy ribbon – ClearBags, twine – Stampin’ Up!

 


Happy Halloween 2017

I really love this cute Doodlebug Designs Boos & Brews paper!

After I assembled this, I realized I should have added texture to the purple-ish band. DRAT. Should have used an embossing folder. I added black pearls and googly eyes.

Supplies: Stamp – Stampin’ Up!, paper – Doodlebug Designs Boos & Brews, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, Taylored Expressions Plum Punch, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, punch – Stampin’ Up!, black pearls – Swarovski, googly eyes – Darice, embossing powder – Ranger clear, organdy ribbon – ClearBags.

Halloween Lunchbox Notes

These cute lunchbox notes were running around in my head, distracting me from other work. I had to make them to move on. Of course, my offspring are past lunchbox notes, and I am not sure what I am going to do with these!

The little 2 x 2 inch scenes were on one sheet of Doodlebug Designs Brews and Boos paper. The finished cards are 3 x 3 inches square, and I even had the perfect size envelopes in my stash. (They do not meet minimum size requirements for the United States Postal Service.)

Supplies: paper – Doodlebug Designs Brews and Boos, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Poptone Sour Apple, Stampin’ Up! Pumpkin Pie, Taylored Expressions Grape Jelly.


Happy Halloween #PSL Card

I don’t drink coffee of any kind.

But, I am intrigued by the thought of Pumpkin Spice Latte (PSL). Not enough to TRY IT, mind you!

How about as a design element for a coffee loving friend?

Supplies: Stamp – Clearly Besotted, Hero Arts, paper – Doodlebug Designs Boos & Brews, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Crumb Cake, Old Olive, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Hero Arts, sequins – Stampin’ Up!, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, Stampin’ Up! Classy Copper.

Happy Halloween Note Card

doodlebug-te-halloween-note

Just received this CUTE Jack-o-Lantern tag die as a “gift with purchase” from Taylored Expressions. I had to use it immediately!

I die cut a smaller circle of black to back the tag – so the eyes, nose, mouth would be consistently colored.

I am thinking Offspring3 will snag this one quickly!  😉

Supplies: Stamp – Clearly Besotted, paper – Doodlebug Designs (boos & brews), Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Pop-Tone Grape Jelly, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, Only Orange (retired), ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Spellbinders (circle), Taylored Expressions (Jack-o-Lantern tag), brad – source unknown.
