Card Tricks-Happy Halloween

Great class tonight with a fantastic group of crafty ladies.  The surprise was that a class of three turned into a class of eight and I didn't have eight kits.  But we shifted some things and the ladies were very flexible.  Here are the fun and easy cards.

First up is a super cute stamp from Hampton Arts made by Outlines.  I'm so happy Outlines stamps are still available. Love their designs.  I knew this would be fun to color with some Copic markers.  We added some rock candy distress stickles to the stars on the owl's hat.  The 'trick or treat' is cut from a ribbon.  An easy way to add some texture and shine to a card.  The bat paper is textured with glitter and the purple paper is from DeNami, rich with texture.

Next up is a super simple card because the paper are so fabulous.  This is Graphic 45's Happy Haunting.  The paper comes with five imprints of this image and four of another Halloween post card.  We added a Martha Stewart glittered spider over the spider in the image and a Halloween themed ribbon.

This card used another great image we got at the store and I knew right away I wanted to use this image.  We masked the raven and sprayed Bronze Perfect Pearls spray.  After drying the stain, we reverse masked the raven and used a lighter Perfect Pearls spray.   The image is layered on plain and print papers and another snippet of Halloween ribbon, this time 'Magic'.

Last card, this time using a black Recollections card with a die cut circle and embossed border.  We punched a larger circle of Halloween print paper then layered a punched image of a witch and her cauldron punched from silver glitter paper.  She's on the inside of the card and you can view this piece through the circle.  Then we cut some potion bottles from Martha Stewart papers and added them with a perfect phrase "Bubble, Bubble, Toil and Trouble"

More great classes coming to the Latham Michael's:  three Christmas themed cards, Spellbinders card tricks and November's Card Tricks class which will be Thanksgiving and Fall themed.  Hope to see you there.  I'll be making extra kits for sure.
