Wicked Wednesday - Halloween projects

Wicked Wednesday- Spooky pocket letters!

Hi crafty people, welcome back to another Wicked Wednesday!  This week’s spooky projects are some Halloween themed pocket letters that I made for swapping last year.  The first one I made a haunted house by using all 9 pockets as part of one focal image.  I used a brick embossing folder for the house front and a fence die to make the railings in front of the house.  The second photo is the back just to give an idea of some of the goodies you can fit into a pocket letter.  I’ve included a short letter, heart embellishments, printed ephemera, a little notebook I made with patterned paper, a homemade spider paperclip, some post its and some chocolates and a tea bag!

The second one I’m sharing today was a “spooky summer” theme!  This time I made individual pockets and used a selection of patterned papers, some stickers and die cut embellishments.  The papers are a mix of Halloween and tropical summer themes.  The cutting dies were all from Tattered Lace and I think they are so cute.  I particularly like the Mummy with his bandages hanging off his hands.  I’m sure these dies will show up again very soon!

Freshly Made Sketches 353

Hi everyone, hope you are having a great week.  Today I am sharing a card I made for the new Freshly Made Sketches Challenge (check it out at Freshly Made Sketches 353)

The sketch for the challenge this week is….

FMS Final 353-001

I know it’s only just the start of September but I had ordered a couple of new Halloween stamp sets and I couldn’t resist using them today!  So I decided to have a play with some distress oxide inks for smooshing the backgrounds and then coloured and fussy cut the stamped images.  I absolutely love these wee ghosts, so sweet!


I used a bit of mixture of alcohol pens to colour as I don’t have a full set of any brand!  My mixture includes the Spectrum Noirs, First Edition markers by Trimcraft and Nuvo by Tonic.  I would love to try some Copic markers but I haven’t made the investment yet as they are pretty pricey!

So I ended up making two cards but I think I’m going to enter the green one because I am loving the wee Frankenstein ghost!

Have you started making any Halloween projects or do you think it’s too early?  Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoy my blog post.
