Halloween Masquerade

Good morning, all! It's really cool here on the coast today, but at least it's not snowing like it is where some of you live! We're supposed to get some rain tonight, which we really need. That's very exciting for us--that's about the extent of our extreme weather!

I made a couple of Halloween cards yesterday evening. Just realized I've hardly posted any Halloween stuff at all this whole month! Did it all last month, I guess...well, here's some more. I'm sure I'll get a few more done before the month is over!

This adorable image is from Crafty Secrets' "Halloween" Images & Journal Notes--such a fun booklet to use! I used Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, PTI Vintage Cream & DCWV "La Creme" dp for the card, added ribbon, black rick-rack trim and some gold glass glitter. The image made me think to make a mask, which I just drew freehand & cut out--pretty easy!

For this card, I also used the "Halloween" booklet, used the same papers (they were still right there...!), and used silver glitter this time. I noticed on another page in the image booklet was a border of the same pumpkin head used in my main image, so I just cut them out, popped them up & used them on the bottom border of the card.

That's all for now...tomorrow I've got something different to share--no cards this time--a little break for you! Have a marvellous autumn day!


  1. Fun Halloween Cards Julie...I just love all the trims you use.


  2. Your cards are always SO FESTIVE!! Great job on both creations Julie!

  3. I can't believe you hand drew that mask yourself! You are so talented. I just love all the colors, glitter, and embellies you used on both of them. They are both so 'halloweenish'. Great job!

  4. I love your creations! I stumbled across your blog last week when I was on the Farm Chicks web site and I am going to start following your blog. Thanks for sharing!! Erin

  5. Gorgeous cards, Julie! I am really loving your gold glass glitter-it looks terrific! Sparkle on!
