Halloween Card Inspiration

Halloween is my least favorite holiday.  I remember not even liking it as a kid.  I don't even pass out candy - I turn my porch light off and hide upstairs - I'm THAT neighbor.
That being said, I LOVE Halloween themed scrapbook supplies!  I love looking at it, but don't really ever buy any - well, because I have no Halloween pictures to scrapbook.  I do make a few Halloween cards though, just for fun.  (I don't send them out though - they just sit in my drawer!)  I thought I'd share them today if you are looking for Halloween card ideas.
This card has really great textures.  The bat is adhered with foam dots, lifting him off of the page.  The word Boo! is cut out from orange-core Coordinations paper with a bit of the black sanded off to show the orange center.  The tree is inked with black and then painted with Tim Holtz crackle paint (I still love that stuff!)
I made this card last week while staring at my January 2012 Studio Calico kit.  The orange stripe patterned paper, the black cardstock and the black washi tape were all from the kit.  I added the stars, the happy stamp and the orange dot paper from other kits.  The pumpkin and the word Halloween were cut with the Silhouette Cameo.
This card I made for a Cards Magazine style challenge.  The challenge was to use pea-green, purple, black and spiderwebs (or was it spiders?) on a card.  The card didn't get picked up for publication, but I love it!  I used POW glitter paper for the pleated circle behind the spider.
Have you made any Halloween cards this year?
Have a great week everyone!
