Some fun CARDS using Robin's Nest Products with Tutorial

Hi.. back again with some fabulous and fun Halloween cards...
using the Halloween Collection from the Robin's Nest.

This first Halloween Tri Shutter Card follows the Instruction sheet below with 
all the separate pieces using all the different fun papers in this collection.

This card above was lined up on the fun print scene to be the full card base. 
All I added was some accents to finish this one.
Also used some SRM stickers.

Below is the printable Tri Shutter Card Instruction sheet to follow for you to make the above cards.

The card below was inspired by my friend Tracy for a challenge.
 It was perfect for this post using the Robin's Nest Halloween products.
It is called a Shadow Box Card.

 Easy Instructions for a shadow box card.
1. Cut 2 pieces the same:  5 1/2" wide x 4 1/4 high
2. Score at 1/2" and 1" on each end.
3. Decorate the inner back section which will show through the peep hole (at estimated spot)
4. Cut a peep hole to coordinate to the inside accented part on the front piece.
5. Glue the ends from edge to 1/2" mark on each end.
6. Decorate the front.

And finally I have this somewhat plain design card but it's full of cool techniques and accents.
I gesso mask the background, ripped some of the ghost paper and inked the edges, cricut cut the
web out of scraps from the other projects, grabbed and fussy 
cut yet one more "BOO" from the word paper and finished 
with the little friends snow angel with out wings to look like a ghost and some black dew drops.
I really had a great time sharing this month at the Robin's Nest their
Halloween product line.

Halloween can be Fun & Spooky with Robin's Nest Products

Hi ... here today with Robin's Nest halloween Products.
 This amazing Halloween paper line was fabulous to create with. 
So many options to mix and match, fussy cut, piece and make borders, mats
and scenes that were really so cool. Fabulolus coordinating products make it so fun
 and easy to showcase your Halloween photos.

Up close this double used the main background on both sides.
Fun web layers of fussy cut webs were perfect.

Glitter pumpkins and bats along with some bold bright fun borders along
with the fun dew drops finished off the first double.

When your cutting into papers .. it is so easy to grab some of your scraps from your stash 
and create fun and colourful cards..

This 2nd double page was based using the fabulous Haunted House paper.
I chose to rip in in about half to share the scene on both sides of the double.
Splitting the other piece of striped paper was a great combo.

I didn't want to loose the fabulous scene on the side so stuck 
to adding photos in the lower half and just add the title "BOO" and 
some glitter bats. More ripped ghost paper was a great accent.

The fun fence of ghosty goblins was a great base for more web paper
and even a fussy cut and popped up web.
More Halloween Boo paper cut for yet another title and some dew drops  with more
sparkle bats trimmed this half of the page.
Sure had some fun with these combinations and hope I inspired you to want
to create your pages for Halloween too.
This page (only) I showcased using the Let's Get Sketchy last Monday sketch.

Supply List:
Robin's Nest
Accents: Bats Chipboard

Robin's Nest has it's Halloween paper on sale 20% off. 
Be sure to do your shopping early to give you plenty of time to make your

Here is yet 1 more card using stash and pieces.. but love this fun and bright card 
with some diamond stones... and on this one I used some SRM stickers.

All the great layers allowed me to use many different pieces of paper,
some ripped and gagged, some fine strips, some webs were fussy cut and popped up
 and the title was fussy cut.

This close up features sparkles border and bats, Boo cut of a full page, webs and more
 popped up ones, and the ripped fence section was a great base line
 with yet another purple and black sparkled paper.
A fun lined orange and grey paper for the upper and the fine
border of orange, black and green pumpkin paper was a perfect touch and combo.
So with sparkle bats and orange stones this is page 2 of a double.
