Collaged Sparkly Geo Halloween Cards

Happy Friday! I've got a quad of extra sparkly Halloween Cards today, made with Tim's new Geo Halloween Sizzix Thinlits and a ton of new Idea-ology. These were so fun to make, and once laid out (that took me awhile), went together quickly. Sorry for the photos...I'm having a horrible time taking and editing photos, and then there is the compressing. Nothing is worse in blog land than making a project you like but having bad photos to show it.
I forgot to take pics of the first steps, but basically after I laid everything out I used Collage Medium to adhere Design Tape, Stickers, and Ephemera in the new Halloween motif from Tim onto the older but much loved by me Halloween Kraft Stock. Then I added the ribbon, and matted these to cream colored cardstock. I also added some Remnant Rubs to the flash cards.
I die cut the four Geo pieces with black cardstock, and adhered them to colored cardstock bases. Then I filled in the tiles with a slew of Stickles from Ranger.
I die cut tiny Masquerade masks to fit the Paper Dolls, colored parts of them in, and added a few hats cut from the Kraft Stock.
I decided to add wings to a few of the peeps, and then came more Stickles...and then more Stickles. I couldn't stop!

  2. These are so eye-catching! From the patterned background to the glittering geometric elements to the wonderfully augmented Paper Dolls (I'm in love with that dotty headscarf and the shiny masquerade mask!) to all that scrumptious collaged ephemera, there's just so much fun to be found on these cards. Fabulous!

  3. I do share your frustrations with photography, it seems to happen to me far too often these days....

    The cards are wonderful Anita, the backgrounds are perfect for Halloween and I love all the glittered elements you have added, especially those orange shoes. The two little children are my favourite, the little masks look so adorable. Wonderful creations, each and every one. Hugs, Anne xx

  5. So many wonderful details! Nobody uses Stickles better than you do! I love the polka dots you added to that dress! And the way you filled in the geo shapes with Stickles is truly brilliant. Each card tells a wonderful story in its own whimsical way. Just fabulous,Beautiful Soul!
