More Fun Halloween Cards

Hello friends.  I just love making Halloween cards because they are so much fun!  Lil Inkers Designs has some really unique Halloween stamps and dies and today I want to share some of these with you.  One of my very favorites is the Ghost Border.  I discovered it last year too close to Halloween to order it so had to wait a year to get it.  It was worth the wait because it is honestly so clever.  It features LID's dual stitching which means the die cut ghost has stitching and so does the negative piece.

The die also features three different sets of eyes which can be used with the ghost border or independently as you will see on my card below. LID_Ghost_BorderLil Inkers Design die Ghost Border $11.00

Notice that the ghost border can be positioned in many ways both in landscape and portrait.  I cut the ghost and the eyes in one pass.  The googly eyes are really cute!

For this card I positioned the ghost diffferently and used another of the eye/mouth sets.  Love the colorful background paper -- it's new from Doodlebug's Booville collection.

For this card I used one of the three eye dies to cut three eye openings in the card.  Then I added the perfect sentiment from Impression Obsession!  To enhance the eyes I added black flat discs.Eyes-in-DarkEyes in the Dark – Lil Inkers Design die Ghost Border; Impression Obsession clear stamp set If The Broom Fits; design inspired by Jen Carter
