Such a Hallo-weenie :)

Well, I wasn't going to buy any stamps until October 1, but I broke down & got some Halloween stamps this week instead . . . gonna blame it on daughter Rachel, since she wants to make cards & treat bags for her friends ;) yeah, that'll justify/enable me, right?  Actually, I do want to get a jump on my Halloween "Boo-tique" on October 11 (go over to my SU! website, http://www.stampwithjeni.stampinup.net/ & click on the "Events" tab to sign up!), so I really did need to get them now rather than cutting myself short on time later.

Five Fierce Cards!
Didn't they turn out cute?!  I used a little something from several different sets & mixed them up a little:  Out on a Limb (Holiday Mini), Jack All Trades, Wicked Cool, Dark & Dreary, and Grateful Greetings (all from the Idea Book & Catalog).

This first one was the inspiration for the set.  We made a card very similar to this at my 4th level upline's (Kim Williams') last meeting.

I didn't have the Good Grid background stamp to use on the tag like we did at the meeting, so I used the Netting background stamp on both my Very Vanilla pieces of cardstock.  (The card we did at the meeting looked nicer with the contrasting stamps.)

Here are closeups of the other four cards:





If you like these cards, be sure to sign up for my Halloween "Boo-tique" on October 11, where we'll be making a card, a treat, and a 3D item just in time for trick or treat!

Happy stampin'!
