September Paper Pumpkin - Halloween Cards

Hello!! I have some super cute Halloween cards to share today. I don't normally make too many cards for Halloween. But I decided I wanted to use this month's Paper Pumpkin kit to make some fun cards. The kit this month features all the supplies needed to make adorable treat bags! I LOVE the kit this month. My kids even had fun putting their own treat bags together. Since I knew I wasn't going to make all of the bags, I decided to take a few of the elements from the kit to make some cards.


These cards came together pretty quickly. I used a few of the sheets from the Brights Designer Series pack (Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green and Gorgeous Grape). After I cut out the large piece for the background, I saved the skinny piece that was leftover and added it to one of the cards with a different background color. 

As you can see, each card has one of the elements from the kit (ghost, bat and pumpkin). I then cut circles with the Stitched Shapes Framelits as a layer behind those elements. Each card also has a stripe of Mini Stripe Gorgeous Grape ribbon.

I also added the black twine to each of the cards as well. I used the stamps to stamp some of the sentiments as well as those creepy spiders and bats! :) The word Spooky was one of the stickers from the kit. I did the pumpkin card last and I think I might have used the stickers on the other cards too if I would have thought of it sooner. Oh well, they are still fun cards!

Do you have this kit? Has anyone else come up with other fun ideas? With just a few additional supplies from your stash you can use the stamps and other elements from the kit to make cards as well! It's a great bang for your buck!
