Quick and Easy Halloween Cards

I've been so neglectful of my blog this week! There are a lot of magazine submission calls that have been stealing my time away from yall.

With the focus on saving time, and still getting out all my Halloween cards, I had one nice long SIT and banged out tons of cards, no duplicates, but still simple and fun.

This is definitely the quickest of the bunch. Threw on some Martha Stewart washi tape, tie some twine, and stamp bats and sentiment (stamps Paper Smooches "spookilicious" and Inkadinkado)

This one uses repetition of one large ghost stamp (paper smooches "spookilicious") and sentiment. I used the pattern paper to give the card more umph than it otherwise would have had without it (DCWV "bewitched")

In this card the pattern paper is really the only focus (DCWV "bewitched") The only thing I added were the bat stamps and sentiment stamp (paper smooches "spookilicious" and Inkadnkado).

The little owl is a quick paper piecing project. The multiple layers on this card are a lot of fun. Again I used pattern paper as the focal point (DCWV "bewitched") and separated the layers with washi tape and twine. (owl stamp Paper Smooches "speekilicious")

My final card! I made a autumn/Halloween mixed theme with this stinkin adorable little squirrel. Pattern paper is Recollections "night and fall" and DCWV "bewitched."

My main tips on multiple (but still one-of-a-kind!) cards:
Focus on your theme (halloween)
Grab your favorite stamps and papers for the theme (I used three stamp sets and two paper pads for all cards)
Make sure your work space and clean and organized!!

By grabbing my favorite halloween-themed stamps and papers, I saved myself the time of searching through all my items in between cards.

Have fun! Happy (almost) October!
