We would like to wish everyone a spooky, special Halloween!
To get into the "spirit" of the day, here's a couple of creepy creations from our Founding Femmes!
From Sharon Briss:
"I was inspired by this month's Creative Connection - Only One to make a Halloween hanging using only one stamp. I chose these cute pumpkins from Artistic Outpost. Not only did I stamp them on the squares in black, I also stamped them in Tea Dye Distress Ink all over the background designer paper! Too cute and Only One!"

From Ali Manning:
"To create the background of my Halloween card, I used a TJ technique called Double Bugging. After I embossed the purple c/stock using the Distress Stripes folder, I dragged white ink along the embossed portions. Once dry, I flattened the whole piece by running it through my embossing machine several times. I then embossed this smooth piece of c/stock using the Spider Web folder and highlighted the raised areas with black ink. A spooky image of a tree from Stampin' Up! finished off the card."
