Halloween Week: Day 2

Today's card creates a scene using Home Is Where the Haunt Is, a set (discontinued) from StampinUp.


This card required fearless use of a stamp positioner and a bit of bling at the end of the fence. It's hard to tell in the photo, but it's purple bling to match the purple house and sentiment. My niece will love this card!

I enjoy using black ink on white cardstock with a vivid color added for interest. The purple works for Halloween (a bit non-traditional, of course, and nothing wrong with that!). Black, white, and a bright color can be used to achieve a variety of effects, depending on the color.

And to all my commenters using old-fashioned spelling, I just love seeing y'all type Hallowe'en. Grammar gurus, however, says that either spelling is acceptable. So pick your personal favorite and stick with it confidently and consistently. If you don't have a favorite, do as I did and say "eeny, meeny, miney, mo."

  1. I am a fearless Hallowe'en user. :D
    I love this haunted house scene! There seems to be a growing trend to consider purple as a third Hallowe'en colour, so I'd say you're just being cutting edge. ;)

  2. I thought purple was a traditional halloween colour. Maybe different in different countries?? Love the card- I'm currently addicted to house scenes of any kind.

  6. What a great scene! Like an earlier commenter, I thought purple was fairly popular for Halloween. After the basics of orange and black I thought lime green and purple were next in line.
