The Card Concept #59-Sweet Treats

Welcome to the Card Concept!!!
Look at this delicious inspiration!


I was inspired by the yummy colors and Halloween!
I LOVE making Halloween cards! I have no idea why, except my son loved it when he was a little boy!!! And of course I would have to dress up, too!!! So...I made this Halloween card using the colors of our inspiration board.


I had just received my Halloween Kit from Simon Says Stamps and I wanted to play with it!!


I began my sponging Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserves and Chipped Sapphire Distress inks onto a piece of watercolor paper. Next, I misted the Memory Box tree stencil that came with the kit with the Wilted Violet and Black Soot spray stains that came with the kit. Needless to say...I was not happy with the tree stencil. It is way too flimsy!
I stamped spiders, bats and spider webs onto the panel after everything had dried.


I watercolored the cute, little trick or treaters with Distress inks. I added Glossy Accents, black Liquid Pearl, orange Stickles and lots of a Spectrum Noir Clear Glitter pen to add interest and texture to them! They are just so adorable!!

I hope I have inspired you to join us here at
