Feeling like fall!

Wow, the weather is cooling off fast here and fall is underway! Our leaves are already started to fall off the trees, and I've been able to open the windows and enjoy the fresh air. Love this time of year! Taylor's birthday is 2 days after Halloween, so we really love to make the most of Halloween and combine the parties. Anyhow...all of this going on puts me in the mood for Halloween! Do you have any pumpkins yet?

I created this Halloween card for the Pink Paislee blog today with 2 clear acrylic album pages. (I’m hopelessly addicted to anything clear these days!) I first added a silver rub on to the front page from the Pop Fashion Accents rub ons and covered a chipboard square that I had with the Moon Glade paper from the Vintage Moon collection. I had some chipboard numbers from Maya Road that I covered with the Night Owl paper and cut a little flower from the Moon Pie paper. Next, I stamped the Oct. 31 bracket onto part of the clear packaging that my acrylic pages came in and added that over the numbers with a couple of pearl gems. Love to recycle. I topped it off with sprinkling a bit of black acrylic paint over everything with an old paintbrush!
A big thank you to Janelle Richmond over at Sketch This for letting me use her sketch!

On the left side of my card, I added a rub on tree from the Vintage Moon Icons and stamped/cut out the little bat from the Trick or Treat clear stamps. I had to pop it up with some fun wire and glitter it up a bit too!

Love how the layering really adds dimension and interest! =)

Your card is gorgeous, Dani. Whenever I see all the wonderful Halloween projects I feel sorry for myself that we are not familiar with Halloween over here. However, I do have a Halloween party on October 31st, so I should be able to use some Halloween stuff.
