Halloween Card Sets

**Edited 9-1-12 to Join the Mr. Bones Halloween Spook!**

Good afternoon fellow crafters, hope you are having a very wonderful Thursday! I very anxiously have walked to my mailbox the last few days in hopes that my Papertrey Ink order for this month had arrived. Well after several day of disappointment, my order finally arrived today and let me tell you, it was well worth the wait!

I was so excited for this month's release over at Papertrey Ink because I knew it was about time for some new Halloween and Fall stamp sets! I was thrilled when Nichole announced the release of the Tremendous Treats: Halloween stamp set. I ordered the stamp set along with the Happy Haunting and Mr. Bones stamp and matching die sets. These products are too freakin' adorable!

I knew I wanted to Mr. Bones stamp set as soon as I saw Betsy Veldman's card here with the "peeking windows". So with her card in my mind, I immediately set out to create my own.

Using Stampin' Up cardstock in Elegant Eggplant, Old Olive, and Pumpkin pie, I created 6 card bases, 3 in each color. I used Kraft cardstock and Stampin' Ups scallop square punch to create the windows for my little skeletons. I die cut and stamped 18 skeletons, then started set up all my cards. I used Halloween Patterned paper from Recollections All Seasons paper packs in back of the skeletons. I also ordered the Spider Web trio die set, and using the smallest spider web, I die cut 6 of those and put them inside the cards, along with the cute spider from the Mr. Bones stamp set. I made 2 sets of 3 cards, both with different phrases from the Mr. Bones set.

I am in love with all of these sets and I cannot wait to make more cards, tags, and favors with them for my upcoming Halloween Craft show at a local mall. Hope you are all having fun with your new goodies as well! Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
