Send a Smile 4 Kids – Challenge #86 Cute Halloween/Fall Cards for Kids

Happy Saturday everyone!  It’s time for another Send a Smile 4 Kids Card Challenge!  You ready?  This challenge is featuring kid friendly Fall or Halloween cards.  You can use any image be it rubber stamp, digital or cut file, it’s up to you.  We have some great sponsors for this challenge that would love for you to use their images in the challenge, so check them out.  The first sponsor is:

1)  The Crackerbox Palace – Prize – $15.00 Gift Certificate

2) The Cutting Cafe – Prize – 3 sets of digis or cutting files

3) Stitchy Bear Digital Outlet – Prize – 2 digital images – Value $6.00

 

Now, let’s get to some inspiration!  My first card showcases images from The Cutting Cafe’s “Halloween Time”.  This set alone comes with 55 assorted digital images and I just used a few to make a scene!  Fun set.   I created shadows with Copic Markers and the sentiment stamp is an oldie but a goodie from Stampendous.  Paper is from DCWV 6 x 6 pad “Spooky Time”.

My second card is from The Crackerbox Palace using the Pumpkin and Autumn Blessing images, which I colored with Copic Markers and design paper from Authentique’s “Enchanted”.  The stitching is created by the new “Stitched” die from paper smooches.  I finished this one off with some waxy thread and called her done.

My final offering is from Stitchy Bear’s Digital Outlet called “New Hat”.  She’s colored in Copic Markers with a small strip of We Are Memory Keepers “Spooksville” design paper on the edge.  The “Boo” is a new Paper Smooches Die.  Though I am already Copic Certified, I just took another awesome class by Jennifer Dove through Annie’s Closet.  If you haven’t seen her work, you’re really missing out.  She does a great job and explaining how to color people.  She also has a beginner class that is supposed to be really good too.  The coloring I’ve done is really basic compared to what she does, but it was my first go after the class and I can see more definition in the face that I normally produce.  I look forward to hearing if you’ve also taken this class and what you thought about it.

  1. All of the cards are very nice. I like the fall colored card stock you used with the Autumn Blessings and pumpkins. Using 2 different ones and the cut makes it very interesting.
