Halloween Kitties

The weather is nice and chilly, vacation creeps a little closer each day, and there's a new release at Sami Stamps for you to enjoy!!!

I am so in love with Sami's new images...they are just so adorable!  And perfect for this time of year!  Along with this release is also a challenge to use Halloween colors, which seems to be the only paper I have on my desk right now!  I love making Halloween cards and was thrilled to use Sami's images on these!
This new release just totally spoke to my heart.  I'm a kitty freak, I'd have way more than 3 if I had the space and my hubby let me :)  So when Sami announced her Halloween Kitties image release, of course, I wanted them all :)  But I stuck with 2 :)

This image is Halloween Kitty (which is the current freebie!!!)  I colored it all up with my pencils and added some glitter pen to the pumpkin and moon.  I wasn't entirely sure on how I wanted to do the layout until I did some inspiration searching online and saw a project that had a spiderweb as a window (I think it was for like a paper lantern...).  I knew instantly that I wanted to do that for this card!  So I pulled out some paper, sized up my web, and cut it out with my Silhouette along with a sweet little scallop frame.

All the edges are distressed with my scissors because I love that look on Halloween cards.  I made up a large paper button and covered it with glossy accents.  Then strung some orange twine along the side and through the button for a cut little bow, and attached a sentiment flag underneath.  It turned out so cool!  I just love this cute little kitty peaking out from behind the pumpkin!!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
    Digi Darla's #82-Anything Goes w/Harvest Moon
    Penny's Paper-Crafty #147-Anything Goes
    Sweet Sunday Sketch #194
    V's Sweet Ideas #16-Halloween

I just love the cuteness of this next card!
This card uses the image Witch's Cat, and I just love it!!  How adorable is a little kitty sitting on a broom?!  I'm not very good at making spooky cards...I really tried with this card by adding clouds.  They were supposed to be all dark, grey, and gloomy...but instead they just turned out big and fluffy...so I stuck with more bright and cheery colors on the card.  It still turned out adorable though :)

I added a stripe of spider web washi tape under the image and trimmed around the design to give it a cool edge.  Then free hand cut some layered stars and stuck buttons in their centers before printing off and tucking a cute sentiment behind the large one.

Again, all the edges are distressed with my scissors :)

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Be sure to stop by Sami Stamps to see the rest of the design teams amazing projects!!  They did such a fantastic job with these images!  Love them all :)

And then join in this months challenge!  The theme is to use Halloween colors, and the only requirement is to use a Sami Stamps image!  Don't have a Sami Stamps image?  That's ok!  Visit the freebies section in her shop to see what she has available for you!!  It's that easy :)
