Happy Halloween!


I want to wish you a Happy Halloween!

and right for this occasion I have  - guess what - a Halloween card!
I mailed all of my cards out, so I had to make a new one....

I used a chevron background stamp from Rubber Necker, which I heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I sponged metallic ink onto the balck cardstock. I used two different kinds of Washi tape - I just love how the grey Washi tape matches the chevron pattern - it has the same distance - what a coincidence.....The little tag is from an old Stampin' up tag set. 

I colored the spider with a neon marker added some twine and a black gem.
Of course, this card will go into a few challenges:

Less is More - use string or twine
The Twinery - Halloween theme
Pinspired -  Halloween theme
CASology - Black


I also wanted to share some Halloween cards I got - the first card I got from my blogging friend Susanne - perhaps you saw it already on her blog... So cute! It was so unexpected - it really lit up my whole day! Thanks, Susanne!

The second card is from my sister - not so unexpected - I ALWAYS get cards form her - isn't it great? I love the hexagons and the cool color combination!

And lastly I wanted to share the fun trip my sister and I did yesterday - we went to the Bronx Botanical Garden and did a little shopping on Arthur Avenue - the Italian section in the Bronx.

The Botanical garden is all halloweeny - including the trees!

Wow, Cornelia, this is so striking ... love the embossed chevrons, they're really dramatic ... a great foil for the cute spider tag! Anita :)

Susanne Vargas said...

Dein background ist ja toll mit dem heat embossing und der metallic ink! Und das passende Washi tape und den süssen Anhänger!
Die Karte von deiner Schwester finde ich ich toll! Hat sie auch einen blog?
Danke auch, dass du meine Karte "geshowcased" hast.
(Vielleicht sollte ich einfacherweise englisch schreiben...)
