It is so fun this time of year to anticipated fun times like back to school (for moms and dads), autumn leaves turning colors and the perfect costume for Halloween. I love all of those things too, although my favorite by far is Halloween – so I thought I’d share with you some fun projects to get your creative juices flowing – because before you know it – Halloween will be just around the corner.
I like the anticipation of the scare as well as the scare. But Halloween can also be funny too. This week, I want to show you how funny and punny Halloween can be with stamps that show the humor in Halloween.
Frankly, this first card is just so cute. I love the pun and this card can work for Halloween or just for a friend named Frank. The color combo of the fringe is awesome too.

Jessi’s spook-tacular web fill with googly eyes is great. I love how she created so many layers on her card with ink, texture paste, ribbon and the cool web die cut.

I’m just batty about the adorable little costumed girl from My Favorite things. She is so sweet and Amy’s coloring skills give a cool look to her costume.

Melanie killed it on this gorgeously bewitching card. There is so much to see and she combined colors so well. This is truly beautiful.

I just could not resist this little cat and his upturned paws. How cute is he with the sentiment “boo to you.”

If you stare at the moon long enough you can actually see a face. Well, not really but this card is hilarious and so very clever.

Another witch at a less witchy angle is this cutie from Stamping Bella. So you can get your witchy on in a cute way.

This is an adorable way to set the scene for a ghoul’s night out. These Lawn Fawn stamps are so cute and I love the way Elena created her background so the ghouls look like they are glowing.

This next card takes a Halloween theme but Karen used it as a belated birthday card. How clever is this?

The silhouette of the witch on her broom creates just a bit of wicked movement with the stamped background.

And to round us out, I thought the adorable piggy costume from Kraftin Kimmie stamps was just awesome, and only a little bit creepy
