Pumpkin Party Step Cards | with Karen

I have a confession to make...I have not always been a person who has loved crafting for Halloween. The creepy, crawly part of Halloween is just not my thing. But when I discovered Doodlebug's Halloween collections, I was hooked. And with collections like the new Pumpkin Party, I actually craft as much for Halloween as I do for Christmas! This collection of step cards was inspired by the amazing shapes in the Odds and Ends pack! I love that there are as many background shapes as there are cute characters! They make setting up cute step cards as a little scene a breeze! And while I love the background pieces, like the amazing spooky tree that is as spooky as he is cute, and the fantastic acetate fence, who can deny that this little zombie isn't as sweet as can be as well! The Odds and Ends packs are a card maker's dream! For the background papers I torn into my 6x6 paper pack and teamed it up with some Floral-Grid Petite Prints.
 I happen to love the scale of the prints on the patterned paper in the 6x6. It's all the cuteness of the 12x12, but in a mini version. The papers pack a lot of punch and some interest that can really add to a card.
The 6x6 paper pad also has two different sheets with darling little greetings, each sheet in a different size and with different greetings. For this particular card, I cut one out that simply says "Tick or Treat". And while the Chit Chat packs are perfect for sentiments on cards, like I did with both the zombie and ghost cards, I like that Doodlebug always gives me choices across products so that I can just keep crafting and crafting and crafting!
Oh, and I know I have mentioned this in almost every single post I have have done for Doodlebug, but as a card maker, I just love the mini paper clips. I go through these little guys like I go through my kids Halloween candy (but don't tell them that). I love that they add just that little bit of dimension that makes my card look layered without all the bulk! It's a doodlebug product I just don't want to live without! So there you have it - until about 6 years ago, I never would have thought to make or hand out a Halloween card. But with Doodlebug product around, I just can't help myself. I know you will love this new collection as much as I do!
Thanks for stopping by!
