Halloween cards with Katie

Hello Neat and Tangled lovelies!

Katie Gehring here to share a couple of Halloween cards I made with the super cute Graveyard Shift and Halloween Scene stamp sets.

First up, I tried my hand at the chalkboard technique using Halloween Scene.


I embossed the images with white embossing powder and added some sketch marks with a white pencil.  A few smudges of white ink enhance that chalkboard look. 

My second card features Graveyard Shift.  


I covered a black card base with patterned paper.  Next, I stamped the super cutie skeleton on white cardstock and trimmed it with scallops.  I die cut a bracket edge from orange patterned paper wrapped it with twine and adhered it to the card.  I stamped the sentiment on a die cut banner and affixed it to the card. A candy corn button was added as a finishing touch. 

Well, that's all for me today!  Have a great weekend!



  1. Beautifully done, Katie! ADORE the chalkboard details and the fun use of diecut and colors!

  2. Great job on both cards. Your chalkboard technique turned out wonderfully. I love the little candy corn on the second card. The twine and paper choices are perfect.
