Trick or Treat!

"O" is for October, Orange and Octagon!

Here's a sketch I came up for the front of my easel card:


And here is what I have been working on for a few days:



Since Halloween is one of my favorite holidays (second only to Christmas), I wanted to create a "costume parade" of sorts with my stamps. Here we have Pirate Tilda, Sherwood Edwin and Princess Tilda all ready for Trick or Treating!

Each one also has their very own treat bag to collect some yummy goodies; these were made on my Cricut and decorated with die cuts from the Cricut as well. I also used it for the front sentiment and the little bat on the back. Pirate Tilda is sitting on my set of three pumpkins and another pumpkin with leaf is set forward of those. If you want these digital images for your own Halloween / Fall cards, you can get them HERE at my DigiDrawn site! Both Edwin and Princess Tilda fold down to allow the card to close flat, with the Trick or Treat flap holding down the front of the card.

I used K & Co. papers, Recollections sparkly wires (recoloured with my Copics), Recollections ribbon and a black cat button on the title bar. Other supplies used was some gold Stickles and Memento ink.

Here are the Copics I used:

Pirate Tilda:
E0000, E00, E01, E02, E99, C1, C3, C4, C6, N2, N3, N4, N6, R43, R46, R59, Y11

Princess Tilda:
E0000, E00, E02, C0, C3, Y11, Y28, V000, V12, V17
