Quick and Easy (5 minute) Halloween card

Hey friends!

I came up with this beautiful card that was inspired by the movie The Book of Life. If you haven't seen it, watch it this Halloween! (or Day of the Dead, Nov. 1st) It's a GORGEOUS movie that is fun for kids AND adults...those are my favorite kinds. ;) I'm always searching for a good non-scary Halloween movie, and I HIGHLY recommend this one! (And no, they didn't pay me to advertise, I really do love it!) So, the card was made not necessarily to celebrate Halloween, but it's a fun seasonal way to tell my husband how much I appreciate him. He really is awesome. Just like in the movie, he steals my heart again and again. Ok, enough with the goo-goo eyes, we've got work to do! (Bonus points for naming that movie! Yes, we watch a LOT of animated movies around here!)

One thing I didn't point out in the video, is that when you tap off the embossing powder, you may need to brush any excess powder off. Just use a dry paper towel or brush... I wonder if the embossing buddy works on that. It's usually so humid here that I don't need to use it, but I'm going to try it and let you know!

Anyway, thanks again for stopping by! Here is a complete list of products I used to make the card. If you purchase $25 worth through my online store before November 6th using hostess code: 32JVXVS7 I will send you a fun surprise!

Now...I LOVE Halloween projects, so I always look forward to the September Paper Pumpkin kit! This year was no exception! In fact, it was THE FIRST kit that I didn't know what was coming before I opened the box! I was HOPING for a Halloween kit, and OH MY GOODNESS did Stampin' Up! deliver!!! Seriously, EVERY Halloween kit has been one of my favorites!!! Even better, these ADORABLE containers can be used for ANYTHING!!! I'm planning on SOOOOO many different holidays with them! I may or may not have already ordered several refill kits. :) I absolutely LOVE the pre-printed Halloween tags. I kinda wish they were part of the stamp set! That cat and cauldron! Supah cute!  I know some of you are so not into Halloween.... we can still be friends. Seriously, this kit is ALL about those adorable test tubes! You can use them for ANY occasion!!!

Unfortunately, I haven't had time to put anything together yet, but I DID make the case insert. I posted it in THIS facebook group but figured there were some of you who might not have seen it yet. So here you go! If you have any questions on printing, PLEASE post them in that group and as a community we can get it all figured out for you!!! Thanks again for stopping by!!!
