Serendipity Blog Challenge - Halloween




It's time for another Serendipity Blog Hop Challenge!  This time is was to make something Halloween!  That is easy to do with the big selection of Halloween Stamps available at Serendipity Stamps.  You can see them here.   The special of the week?  20% off the Halloween category stamps now through September 26.
I made a few quick projects.   The first this simple witch in the window.  The only coloring is the moon. 
 
Next I made a few tags - if you don't have treats you are bound to get tricks so better to be prepared with some goodies on hand!!  For these I simply stamped the images in Momento and colored them up with Copics.  The bows look big and floofy because the ribbon is wired - so you can shape it as you like.
I hope you'll check out the other Halloween inspired projects by the rest of the design team - I know they will be frighteningly fantastic!

Oooo, woweee, two spooky projects!! The witchy card is just wonderful - love the idea of peeking through the window frame there and seeing the witch that beautiful orange moon! And the treat tag is over the top gorgeous!! Such a cute little image, beautifully coloured and how much am I loving that wired ribbon. The Cheery Lynn doily at the back has such beautiful details - you make Halloween so elegant Jeanne!! Love it ;)

BAM!!! The gates fly open and you come running out in the lead! What a way to have my coffee this morning. Might add, it's a bit difficult to swallow with jaw on the desk. ;)

First, you know I love the window. Love it! That witch silhouette goes so perfectly behind it with that lace as curtains. The bow is so pretty looks great next to the window and what a cute sentiment that goes perfectly with the little witch. I think your tags are so sweet! The nautical wheeler doily looks just like a spiderweb with the circle on top of it. I had to look to see where you found that web doily! Great job on your projects as always.

Love your card and your tags! The card has such a nice combo of old and new. The window is a great way to frame the image!

Pauline said...

Jeanne, I just love your beautiful card, and the fun treat tags, your colouring is fabulous, and I love that fabulous poofy bow!

Vickie Z said...

Wonderful!!! Love the window (after my little experimenting with windows by hand...not an artiste...that window is in the mail, LOL!) and love the tags and fluffy bows!!!

Sharron said...

Wow, you used one of those fabulous windows. The witch outside is such fun! Love your gorgeous bow and bling accent! And the bows on your tags are amazing. That wired ribbon has an almost spidery look and the images are adorable!

Maria said...

Awwww...so so adorable with that little Halloween witch! Love how you framed her behind the window with lovely border trim! Gorgeous bow treatment, too! Take care, hugs!

Joyce said...

This is really cute. I love the ribbon you used, and the bow you made. And, how clever to use the window die.

Love, love,love the window card. I have been looking for a window like that but can't find one.

JJ Bolton said...

My goodness, that card is just so elegant and beautiful! I love the toile-look paper you used! I've never seen anything like it. And what a beautiful gem on your bow! Stunning card!

And how can I not mention the tags! Those die cut doilies are specular! When you cut them in black it's perfect for Halloween:)
