Everything is Coming Up Halloween - Control Freaks Halloween Blog Tour

Welcome to our September Control Freaks Blog Tour.  We are featuring Halloween this month.  You may have come from Jan Tinklenberg's blog or are starting here.  

The first card is a tweaked version of my Perfect Blend card.  It has Halloween colors but is good for anytime.

Stamp Set:  Perfect Blend
CS:  Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black, Very Vanilla
DSP:  Witches Brew, Modern Medley
Ink:  Basic Black Classic Pad
Punches:  Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack, Large Oval punch, Scallop Oval punch
Accessories:  Rhinestone Jewels, Paper Snips, Glue Dots, Dimensionals

My next card uses the new Circle Thinlits Card Die.  It is so easy to use and makes a wonderfully fun card.  To make the extra fold for inside the card, you put the 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of card stock through the opening of the die so it doesn't get cut off.  That gives the extra flap to be able to write in.  Pretty cool idea.  What an easy way to make a WOW card.



Stamps:  Best of Halloween, Halloween Hellos
CS:  Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, Basic Black, Daffodil Delight
Ink: Basic Black Classic Pad
Markers:  Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, White Stampin' Chalk Marker
Punch:  1 3/4" Circle punch
Accessories:  Big Shot, Circle Thinlits Card Die [133480, $32.95] 
       Square Lattice Embossing Folder

My last card uses the new Envelope Punch Board which can be used for more than just envelopes.  I made a File Folder card.  I could have rounded the top corners but wanted the squared off version.

Stamps:  Best of Halloween
CS:  Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, Basic Black
Ink: Basic Black Classic Pad
Punch:  1 3/8" Circle punch
Accessories:  Envelope Punch Board [Item # 133774, $19.95]
      Stampin' Trimmer, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter Glue
