Scrapping The Little Things ~ A Neutral Halloween!

Good Morning!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  My weekend was full of family activities,  you see my oldest nephew was married this past Saturday!  I was able to spend time with family from out of town, that was truly special!  The wedding was gorgeous, however it was extremely hot!!!  We haven't really had a hot summer, in fact it's been a rather cool one...until Saturday that is!  :)
Enough of me, let me get on to my project...Today is Scrapping The Little Things at My Creative Time.  I decided to make some Halloween "project life" style cards.  They certainly aren't you're traditional Halloween with the color palette I chose.  This was on purpose since I didn't know what pictures I'm using for them yet.  Keeping them neutral will make it easy to use any pictures!

I used the Chevron Stripes and embossed them with white powder.  For the jars,
 I stamped the bats and spiders on the back of the vellum.  Then I added fine black glitter to the
 star burst.

Again I purposely kept these simple until I'm ready to use them.  Then if I want, I can still stamp journaling lines if I think I need them.

Chrome paper

Be sure to see what my design team sisters have created! 
Have a beautiful week!

You are so clever! I couldn't figure out how you got your bats and spiders in the vellum jars! Stamping on the back of the vellum - genius! The white embossed chevron on kraft looks gorgeous too! I will definitely be remembering that ! Awesome cards!

I like the white chevy on the kraft...beautiful. These cards will look good with any pictures. I can deal with the bats but the spiders creep me out a bit...I will have to do that just because. I am glad you have the gold lids on tight and the twine is a great touch. Super cards.
