Halloween Card {and give-away}

If you think that so far I’m having a good time being on the Tim Holtz design team, you’d be right.

Tim Holtz product used: texture fade, spiced marmalade, pumice stone, and walnut stickles, peeled paint and dusty concord distress ink, metal clip

other: Jenni Bowlin vintage Halloween kit goodies, Martha Stewart candy sticker, cardstock, PPA by USArtQuest (adhesive), ribbon

I made another of my ‘glue faux fruit rolls’ and attached to the front of a folded piece of cardstock to make a card. Then I inked, stickled, and otherwise decorated. SO easy!!

What could be more fun than getting a bit of crazy Halloween goodness in the mail? How about getting a texture fade of your own?

Tim sent me these last week, and he said I could share them with my lovely blog readers. I already have (and LOVE and USE) these texture fades and I can tell you they’re LOADS of fun!! Would you like to get one of these in the mail? Leave a comment here and I’ll pick two winners (and send them each one of the texture fade sets shown above) in a few days. Share your favorite October treat in a comment here, and maybe I’ll treat you!! Good luck.

  26. My favorite October treat, huh? That’s a tough one, but I think I have to say apples. I love all the varieties, and I love going to orchards to pick them right off the trees. This year, I made a very simple, but delightfully tasty, apple sauce, which I’ve never done before. And I’m going to make apple bread tomorrow to take with us on our anniversary getaway this weekend, which is another October treat for me–celebrating our life together with my husband.

  41. Great card, May! I haven’t managed to find any spooky texture fades around here, so would love to win. My favourite October treat is heading out to the country to see fields full of ripe pumpkins, just waiting to be carved into jack-o-lanterns. Ironic, as I don’t care for the taste of pumpkin; my favourite edible fall treat is home made butter tarts washed down with a glass of fresh pressed apple cider.

  49. Your Halloween card rocks my face off! I have GOT to get some glue and try that technique. And, to be a part of Tim Holtz’s dream team….that’s the good life.

    My absolutely favorite Halloween treat would be Pumpkin Reece’s. Especially frozen. With some cider. 🙂 Happy crafting and treating!

  50. I think I would most like to see raisinettes, three musketeers and 100 grand bars in my trick or treat candy. YUM! but for a real october treat, I’d have to go with pumkin pie. YUM! 🙂

  51. Hands down…candy corn 🙂 Brachs of course, because of the softness factor! Thanks for the chance to win!

  52. Oh.. I don’t think I have a real favorite ! But the smell of cinnamon and cloves draw me in all the time. Pumpkin! Apple butter cooking over an open fire! And of course, candy corn is a staple usually. 🙂

    Thanks May !

  53. Carmel Apples and Candy corn. Neither of which I should really have since I need to get my diabetes in control.

  54. I LOVE the cards…so perfect for Halloween. I would be so delighted to get these TH embossing folders–the perfect thing to use for my Halloween-born daughter’s birthday card. Thanks for your constant inspiration and ideas!

  55. Mmm, everything about October is a treat to me! The cool, crisp, slightly smoky smelling days. The bright blue sky as a background for the beautiful canvas of red, orange, yellow, green, and brown trees. Pumpkins, apples, ans kettle corn to savor. Pumpkin spice lattes and apple cider. Sneaking a kit kat or peanut butter cup from the trick or treat bowl. My annual vacation where I spend as much time as possible in various local parks. And this year, spending all these awesome moments with my little boy! This is my favorite month.

  56. My favorite October treats are Peanut Carmel Apples (already had one this month!) and Carmel Cheese Popcorn. Ok so I really eat the carmel cheese popcorn all year round but that can be our secret.

  57. Everything made with pumpkin, but my favorite has to be pumpkin ravioli. It is simply delcious!
