I have been making Halloween cards for residents of an Assisted Living Center. All are inspired or copied from SU Demonstrators work found on Pinterest or blogs. Many have provided sketches which I used. Dawn Griffith is a favorite SU Demonstrator and has made several Halloween cards using sketches, so I followed a few of hers. Enjoy these cards.
The above card is a CASE of my daughter’s work. She came into my craft room and told me exactly what colors she used and I simply stamped everything she told me.
I have a total of 15 cards going to this Assisted Living Center. All stamps used were Stampin Up. The majority came from my Mother’s stash. She made cards for Shut-Ins and Halloween was never left out. A few came from my daughter’s stash as she loves Halloween. I own two sets and both were used here in some capacity, but I really do not make many Halloween cards. Maybe I will make more as I have images colored, cut, and waiting to be used sitting in a bowl. Thanks for spending time with me seeing my stash of cards heading out soon.

WOW!! I like them all, especially the vampire bat.
Thank you! I found the vampire wings tricky with the supplies I had. I finally used a small oval die, I think, and cut it in half. A more petite oval would be better, but I used what I had available. Then the branches are from the bird builder punch. I inked the owl with white pigment ink. Feel free to give it a try! I know you will do a much better job than I did.
Thanks for the kind words but I don’t think I could possibly do any better than yours.
So much fun and all these will bring many smiles to many faces.
Thank you! That is the only reason I created them. Love that there are people will love receiving them and will bring a smile to their faces.
You have really been busy, Lisa. Your Halloween cards are really awesome. So nice of you to make these cards for assisted living residents.
Thank you! I seem to start and keep going till all are finished then I can do something different.
These are fantastic cards Lisa! Love the card with google eyes. It was definitely a fun kind of creepy. The first one with all those little frogs is adorable, too. Okay, I liked them all, but those 2 made me smile the most. It looks like you’ve been having lots of fun making these!
Thanks! I learned that glue dots and googly eyes on vellum is not the way to go. I had to go back and use liquid glue to hold them so the eyes would not fall off. I love the frogs. They were fun and easy to quickly cut.
