halloween cards...

These are just a few of the Halloween Cards I've made recently for Making Memories using their brand new SPOOK ALLEY collection.



For all of these cards, I used the SLICE and the Spook Alley DESIGN CARD.



I tried to use the SLICE in as many different ways as I could.  I used the shadow option, available on this Slice design card.  I embossed with the embossing tips then lightly sanded over the raised images - (THESE are my favorite sanding/distressing tools - I've had one set that's lasted forever and I can always find the perfect tool to work for whatever I'm sanding).



I cut more than one image, then layered them.  On the above card, I first cut the word "boo," then I chose the headstone image, placed my Slice on top of the word and cut again.  Next, I cut another orange headstone...and layered the two pieces.



And I cut the same image from several different patterned papers and layered the die-cuts with pop-dots,

Making Memories featured these cards on their blog yesterday, along with the downloadable (is that a word?) instructions for making all of these cards, if you are interested. :o)
