Hip Hop Halloween ATCs

This is my favorite time of year. It is beginning to get cooler, the bugs are gone, and Halloween is in the air! Maybe it is because I am a huge fan of orange and no one really appreciates the color until Autumn...but also, HALLOWEEN. There are so many things to craft! I sent a few silly Hip Hop Halloween ATCs to a friend:

They were made with a new collage sheet called Halloween Darlings and some really shimmery, very cool Mica Fragments from Alpha Stamps. They are easy to apply, just sprinkle them onto an adhesive like Glossy Accents, and they will stick forever. I even poured some of the fragments into a plastic bag and smooshed them into a coarse powder and still they glistened. Pretty neat stuff!

Hope you are getting your Hallowe'en on and are crafting all things spooky!

Costumed Kiddos ATCs

Can you believe it is already September? You know what that means- more Hallowe'en crafts! Every square inch of my craft table is covered in black, orange, green, glitter, spiders, ravens, and skeletons. It looks good that way.

Amongst the piles of spooky goodness, I found a few Wrought Iron ATC Cards with a gothic fence and spiderweb borders. The borders are neat because they add a little depth to the cards. Paint them, emboss them, add glitter to them, then half of the card is already finished! I added images from the Little Darlings collage sheet and gave two of them crepe paper costumes. (Do you see that minuscule buckle on the witch? So small!) The third kid got a pair of bat wings from the Halloween Dress Up Half sheet. Done!

To make the cards stand upright, I simply carved out a small section of these fun Jack-o-Lantern erasers and slid the corners of the card in the slot.

Everything I used for the ATCs can be found at Alpha Stamps or to see a supply list, click HERE.
