What's Up Wednesday: Build A {Halloween} Scene

Happy Halloween peeps!

It's Shay here to wish you all a spooktacular Halloween.  Have you seen all the bootiful Halloween projects on the blog lately?  Julie and Norma are really blowing me away.

With the new stamps it is easy to create for Halloween and autumn.  I made a companion card to my fall card made with the Build A Scene stamp set.  You can find the fall card HERE.

The inked background from that first card was actually one half of a larger piece.  I had set aside the other half for a Halloween card that would be just like the first, but with some Halloween touches using the Fall Add Ons stamp set.  I love that with some changes of stamps and changing brown ink for black I now have a spooky scene perfect for Halloween.  I could make a new card using the Build A Scene for each season.  Imagine changing the colors for winter to make pretty and easy holiday cards.

One of the first major deviations from the fall card is that I stamped the large tree in black and kept it bare.  This way the tree immediately has a creepy feel.  Of course the Another touch is the iridescent spray over the card which I think is very appropriate for Halloween.  Instead of the orange jewels in the fall card, I chose to stamp "Halloween" from the Halloween Mix It Up stamp set under the "celebrate" and add a touch of glittery orange Stickles to the moon.

Can you see the shimmer?

Let's see the two cards together:
