Happy Halloween with Jenny Alia



Hi, it's Jenny posting today with a Halloween card inspired by this week's challenge.  I've been having so much fun with all the new Cheery Lynn Halloween dies from the July release!  To make this card I began by cutting three large squares out of white and purple card stock.  I colored the smallest piece orange with distress ink.  After the distress ink dried I cut a circle out of the card stock with one of the small circles from the  Circle Classic Silver Stackers.  I then used the Square Stitching Tool to cut the stitches into the largest and smallest square for added texture.


I then got to work on the fun elements.  I cut the Home Sweet Home haunted house out of a dark gray card stock and backed it with purple for a spooky light inside.  I think this would be really neat to do with neon green behind too.  Then I glued the house down and then glued two Ornamental Gates side by side.  I cut the bottoms of them so they wouldn't be as tall.  

I sponged a little gray ink over a piece of white card stock and then glued it behind the orange layer.  The two bats from the Bat Family die were popped up with dimensional foam adhesive.  Last I added the cauldron from the Crafty Ann Halloween Set 2 and glued the Happy Halloween sentiment from the Happy Halloween Twiggy Wreath die set.

Thanks for visiting and I hope you can join us for this week's Halloween challenge for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate to Cheery Lynn Designs.
