Scary Simple Sunday

This week our Getting Cricky Design team is featuring  Halloween projects.  Be sure to check out which stamp sets are used because not everyone chose the Fall-O-Ween stamp set.  It’s great to be able to take something like Splashtastic Summer and make it work for a Halloween project.  That’s the beauty of stamps by K Andrew Designs, they are designed to mix and match, not just among sets, but between them too.  Now onto my project:

This was a bit of a challenge for me because I not only don’t enjoy Halloween, I don’t even have so much as a Halloween sheet of paper in my collection.  None I could find anyway that is!  So…what do you do when you have a deadline approaching and you have to get something made…you improvise!  I broke out my Photoshop program, searched for some free Halloween Brushes, and made a grim reaper SVG that I could cut on my eCraft.  I did the same for the tombstone and then used the shapes already inside my SCAL software for the moon and cloud.  I used K Andrew Designs Fall-O-Ween stamp set for the sentiment that says “You don’t Scare me'”

My card base is half a sheet of 6 by 12 paper for a 6 x 6 card.  The RIP on the tombstone is the font Graveyard Shift, available as a free download from  I used silver stickles on the blade and black diamond stickles on the handle/staff of the blade or whatever it is Grim Reaper is carrying.  Except for the tombstone, everything was adhered using foam dots for dimension.  I hope you enjoy and can’t wait to see what Halloween Projects YOU have up your sleeves!
