Halloween and Fall Cards

This photo sure came out dark!  I used chocolate chip SU cardstock for the background and ran it through the Cuttlebug.  Cut out the leaves with my E and used the negative cut out for the border.  The glittered leaf came from the floral department in a bag of loose leaves.
I always like to find striped paper inside a stack then tend to struggle to find
a good way to utilize the stripes.  Two shades of brown cardstock were used to accent the stripes.  Copper colored brads are in the center of the squares.  I added a Studio G sentiment and a ribbon.

The ribbon is chocolate chip but looks like a deep burgandy in the photo.

The next card is one that I saw online last year.  It's strips of cardstock cut about 1" wide, edges were inked and then I layed them over an orange card base.  Used my E to cut ovals for the eyes and used the negative cut of the word "Boo".

I like the effect of the negative cut outs on these two cards.

Thanks Carrie!

Okie, if I didn't steal them from you I'm sure they came from an old magazine somewhere because you know I never come up with anything original! LOL!
