not so scary halloween cards with pretty pink posh

I'm always looking for cute stamps & dies for Halloween cards because I LOVE Halloween but I'm definitely here for the sweets & treats, not the scary stuff!

The latest sets from Pretty Pink Posh are perfect for happy & fun Halloween cards! And I'm so delighted to be sharing some cards today for day 2 of the PPP blog hop! 

Before I share my cards, I've got extra fun news! There are 3 $25 gift certificates to Pretty Pink Posh up for grabs! Enter to win by leaving comments along the hop by 11:59pm PST on August 16th, 2021. The winners will be announced on the PPP blog.

 



I love the PPP Monster Hugs set so much and I paired it with some of my favorite cardmaking colors, pink, orange & minty aqua! I also couldn't resist adding googly eyes to all the little monsters.

Pretty Pink Posh makes one of my favorite stencils, Wide Stripes. For this first card, I inked orange stripes as a background for the scripty Trick or Treat die. I layered two white die cuts under a pink one. And I placed a glassine circle behind all of it to mute the stripes just a teeny bit.

A quick tip...to help me line up my die cut words, I used a little low-tack tape to attach the die under my glassine circle as a guide.

The Trick or Treat die also makes a sweet window for a shaker card! The background is orange & pink blended inks topped with glitter paste.

I also inked some pink stripes with the stencil and then cut a circle window for a shaker card full of googly eyes.

For the final card I used circle dies to create a trio of windows to show off minty monsters on a pink glitter background. I love that the sentiment could easily be changed on this card to make it anything but Halloween like a birthday or thank you card.

Your next hop stop is Gemma Campbell's gorgeous blog! I can't wait to see what she made!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Love how you have combined the scripty dies and the monsters/aliens. I appreciate seeing the scripty sentiment dies shown on card fronts so that I can get a better idea of their size. Thanks for sharing!
