Happy Halloween!!  Our new release has nothing to do with Halloween, so I was determined to make a Halloween card using our new release somehow.  So, I used the snowflakes from our new FRESH SNOW stamp set to decorate my pumpkins.  The pumpkins are punched circles...the left one is popped up.  The base accent paper is a forest green color, so I colored some of my epoxy stickers with a Copic marker to match.  It actually worked!  The accent paper that holds the sentiment is one of our new TOPPERS dies.  The sentiment is from Halloweenies and it's is stamped on our Flag Tags die.
  • Trick-or-treating harks back to the Middle Ages and All Souls’ Day, when poor people in Britain would beg for soul cakes, a sweet-bread treat, and pray for dead relatives in return.
  • When trick-or-treating first became popular in the United States in the 1800s, more children played mischievous pranks than asked for candy. By the 1950s, though, the focus had switched to good old family fun, with sugar-hyped children dressed in costumes.
Thanks for stopping by!
smooches! Kim
