  • Diane Lynne Clemen September 21, 2017 at 7:36 pm

    I like to “think out of the box” when crafting my cards. Last Year I used glow-in-the-dark paint to create an enlarged moon and had a witch flying through it, surrounded by ghosts. I was a HUGE hit.. This year I have a haunted house and will use the glow-in-the-dark paint in the windows.

  • Debbie Cooper September 19, 2017 at 6:25 pm

    I have to admit that I love Tim Holtz Halloween! But, Elizabeth Craft is really emerging as a great company for Halloween !

  • Sue Townsend September 19, 2017 at 5:53 pm

    Love the cards! Wish I had waited for this inspiration before doing mine!! I do different designs every year. Last year’s cards all had the moving fence design from ECD. What a hit! This year’s cards feature some kind of pumpkin. I like so many of the Halloween themes, but tend to make less scary cards. Grands are getting older, so maybe next year’s batch will feature something really spooky. This year, I am liking pumpkins!!

  • Jan Thomas September 19, 2017 at 4:15 pm

    you can never go wrong with some ghosts, graveyards, black cats and bats. A spider here and there never hurts either

  • Kathi Carlozzi September 19, 2017 at 3:45 pm

    I loved e to use black glitter paper for Halloween projects.

    The cards are very cute, I just love the haunted houses. I love EDC dies.

  • Joy Blonska September 19, 2017 at 3:15 pm

    Beautiful cards. I wish I were as talented.

  • Barb MacAskill September 19, 2017 at 3:12 pm

    Spooky trees against a cloudy night sky, spiders ? and spider webs or grave scenes all make awesome spooky cards in my opinion! I love what the designers have created! Especially Katelyn’s card! TFS!

  • Julia September 19, 2017 at 3:06 pm

    I love using Halloween colors. This oxide inks have made backgrounds so easy, any die looks great.

  • Jennifer Shears September 19, 2017 at 3:02 pm

    I don’t normally use bright colors except at Halloween. I use orange, green and purple and lots of texture

  • Kathleen Miller September 19, 2017 at 2:39 pm

    I love to make Halloween cards with costumed trick or treaters (stamps) and haunted houses (with a light or two in the windows) or rickety fences (die cut out of textured papers) in the background. Love the inky backgrounds used in the designer cards! Will try to imitate when I make this year’s batch of cards for great nieces and nephews! A five year tradition and counting!

  • Kathleen Miller September 19, 2017 at 2:35 pm

    I love kids dressed in costumes with a dark haunted house or rickety fence. The contrast makes it fun and reminds me of trick or treating as a child – it was always a little spooky when it got dark with lots of costumed neighbors! Stamped figures for kids dressed up or witches are fun with the dimension of die cut fences and spooky houses (with just a light or two in the windows…..).

    Great designs! Can’t wait to get my halloween cards ready for great nieces and nephews! My annual tradition!

  • Deane McPherson September 19, 2017 at 2:16 pm

    My favorite is using fun dies. Purple, black, orange and green papers! Love to make Halloween fun!

  • Rhonda Miller September 19, 2017 at 2:15 pm

    Glitter paper and glitter glue in Fall colors of black, white, orange, and purple are must haves. There’s nothing like a ghost cut out of white glitter paper with google eyes! Yellow glitter card stock also comes in handy to back up haunted houses and candles for a glowing effect. I also love any Halloween related dies and pattern paper….creating tags, gift card holders, and treat bags are my favorite projects!

  • E boggs September 19, 2017 at 2:12 pm

    I like pumpkins ,trees and black shiny paper.

  • brenda September 19, 2017 at 1:57 pm

    I like to use witches, haunted houses, moons, bats, black cats and black rhinestones to create cards. So many options – don’t you agree?

  • brenda September 19, 2017 at 1:54 pm

    I like black cats, witches, haunted houses, bats, candy corn, moons, ghosts, jack o’lanterns, and black rhinestones. So much opportunity to create cards!

    I always have to have ghosts, pumpkins, & black cats on my Halloween cards amongst other things.

  • Jenny September 19, 2017 at 1:16 pm

    In order to make the best Halloween cards you need a good die cut scary tree and spooky fence. Add die cuts, stamped images or punch outs and you have a instant Spooky card!

  • Kathy Ferguson September 19, 2017 at 1:14 pm

    I love Halloween. Haunted houses, spiders, ghosts and pumpkins are some of my favorites to use when creating a card. I have used spiders on a window pane shaker card before with orange, purple, green and goldenrod sequins inside and it turned out darling. Thanks for sharing your designs with us.

  • Dorothy Knapp September 19, 2017 at 1:02 pm

  • Helen Mjovig September 19, 2017 at 12:27 pm

    Being a retired elementary teacher, I always liked to do something that would make the kids “think”. I would use a set of eyes, a divider to separate them from the rest, and of course, a big question mark to spark a discussion!

  • Sherry September 19, 2017 at 12:13 pm

    I like using a black cat or pumpkin stamp and whatever product might go along with the them (stickles, ribbons, etc.). The ideas your design team has come up with are awesome! My grandkids would love it if I made them similar cards.

  • Rose Bell September 19, 2017 at 11:44 am

  • Dorthy Barber September 19, 2017 at 9:57 am

  • carol a smith September 19, 2017 at 9:54 am

  • Rachel Jacques September 19, 2017 at 9:52 am

    I always (not very creative, I use what I have) use haunted houses, witches, bats, full moons and fences. They come pretty scary.

  • Tandara Smith September 19, 2017 at 9:51 am

    Usually bats, ghost and black cats. I try to throw in a jack-o-lantern or two for a pop of color. Color palette is mostly black, white and deep purple. If I’ doing a large layout I’ll add a haunted house with a witch flying across the moon.

  • Janet September 19, 2017 at 9:49 am

    I love to use spider web stamps, pumpkin dies and spooky tree branches either as dies or stamps. When I see that combination, I know that Halloween is near!!! You can use the spider webs by themselves, stamped on pumpkin or the trees, use as a background too! Lots to do with them!

  • Joela Pascoe September 19, 2017 at 9:33 am

    I use black, purple, orange and green for my colour combinations mixed with haunted houses, ghosts, pumpkins and witches. As long as the images are not too scary for my grandkids, use scary images for my families cards. Your new ghost dies are awesome this year love the design of them.

    • Marge Burns September 19, 2017 at 9:39 am

      Lots of spiders, webs, ghosts and pumpkins

  • Karen Kleinert September 19, 2017 at 9:31 am

    Halloween starts the card making frenzy. What great ideas to start this holiday cardmaking to a GREAT start!!!!!

  • Natalie C September 19, 2017 at 9:30 am

    Love the ideas!! On my cards, I love spooky creepy elements. Bare trees, bats, spiders, haunted houses. You name it. Love the Halloween scenery Die!! Going to have to order that!!

  • Denise Bryant September 19, 2017 at 9:29 am

    I love Halloween and think it’s the most fun occasion to make cards for! I’d use ghosts, pumpkins and a black cat to make a Halloween scene! Thanks for all the wonderful samples here to inspire me!

  • DiAnn Soifer September 19, 2017 at 9:29 am

    I love interactive cards, things that pop up or pop out, fold out, etc. So I like to look for pieces I can use together to make a scene. Love spooky trees and cute little characters, pumpkins, and owls. Fun!

  • Iva Rothman September 19, 2017 at 9:23 am

    I love using haunted houses, bats, Ravens and a ghost here or there! Love the cards on the blog, they are wonderful!

  • Mary Puskar September 19, 2017 at 9:21 am

    My favorite time of the year! I have to say I love a witch the best. So many ways and so many stamps and dies to use with the witch image.

  • Elizabeth Mill September 19, 2017 at 9:20 am

    For my cards I love to layer the die cuts especially the tree. Truly makes the Halloween scenes Scarey. Ghosts hiding within the trees gives that extra scare.

  • LouAnn September 19, 2017 at 9:17 am

    I love to use scary items on my Halloween cards.

  • Nadine Wallen September 19, 2017 at 9:15 am

    The cards are adorable! Love using dies to create mine . Leaves and pumpkins galore

  • Kirsten Leavell September 19, 2017 at 9:13 am

    I love the pop up house die by ECD Karen Burniston. You can really dress the house up to be a cute (not so scary) trick or treat/ haunted house. The cute fence that comes with it can be die cut in black and then it’s fun to add little ghosts and pumpkins along the fence. I love that die!!!

  • Debra Nigohosian September 19, 2017 at 9:13 am

    AESOME! Love all of these!

  • Ali September 19, 2017 at 9:11 am

    I love witches at Halloween but I love the Iron fence with some nice black cardstock!!

  • Candy Ritchey September 19, 2017 at 9:09 am

    I think a full moon, clouds and a fence of some sort are always necessary! Then any assortment of bats, pumpkins, spiders, and witches can be added!
    I kinda love the pumpkin with legs and the candy corn with hats could be a new addition for me!!!!

  • Pam McClung September 19, 2017 at 9:08 am

    What great, fun samples! I LOVE Halloween! I love combining stamping with fun Halloween patterned paper and also spooky embellishments. You can really let your creativity go for Halloween.

  • Marilyn H September 19, 2017 at 9:07 am

    I love all the projects. To make mine, I like to use not only stamps, but lots of die cuts/chip. Halloween is tied w/Christmas as my favorite time of year.

  • Suzanne Morse September 19, 2017 at 9:06 am

    Love all the cards ghosts seem to be my favorite this year

  • Suzanne Morse September 19, 2017 at 9:05 am

    Love all the cards ghosts seem to be my favorite this year!!

  • Marjorie September 19, 2017 at 8:45 am

    All the cards are super cute!! I love witches, spiders and anything to make a scary scene.

  • Jane September 19, 2017 at 8:42 am

    I’m lovin’ the bridge card at the top of your blog! I have made a few of these and they are fun to create! I especially like the dies you have to create these scenes.

  • Theresa September 19, 2017 at 8:38 am

    Oh my goodness! All those cards are so adorable – really put me in the mood to make Halloween cards!! For my cards this year (while hard to pick), I think the favorite ECD product will be the wonderfully intense black, orange, purple and green cardstock that coordinates so well with the patterned paper.

  • Theressa Hudspeth September 19, 2017 at 8:36 am

    Because of the short planning time for Halloween cards I tend to use my Cricut to make most of my Halloween cards

  • leslie cernocky September 19, 2017 at 8:12 am

    The cards are great. I guess the only time I crafted for Halloween I made coffin boxes for snicker bars and use recycled paper grocery bags. It made the cynical teenagers that went trick or treating put on a genuine smile thu there indifferent mask.

  • Sherry norte September 19, 2017 at 7:53 am

    On my Halloween cards I love to use the orange and black card stock with the ghosts
    And black cats and the haunted house.
    I love all the samples.

  • Patti September 19, 2017 at 7:44 am

    My Halloween cards have ghosts, black cats, bare trees, haunted house, bats. Thanks

  • Jan Jueckstock September 19, 2017 at 7:33 am

    My favorite dies to use are the Halloween Scenery and Haunted House sets, and the Trick or Treat Bag

  • Kim Drake September 19, 2017 at 7:05 am

    I use the ghost and spooky scenery.

  • Sue LD September 19, 2017 at 6:52 am

    To create a spooky scene I would use the Iron Fence and pumpkins.

  • Marie Berning September 19, 2017 at 6:47 am

    Love the fun “spooky” cards. I have a skeleton die that is really cute and makes fun cards.

  • Ann September 19, 2017 at 6:39 am

    Beautiful work! Love it! I’m inspired to get started on my Halloween cards! I love using scary elements on my cards, oh….and pumpkins!
