Hey there! Chrissie here with you today and I am already in Halloween mode. Is that crazy? I don’t think so. As much as I love, love, love the summer, there is something about the Fall. Honestly, I think it’s because Fall is the time when we normally vacation… And when we vacation as a family, we go to the most magical place on earth. So, when I saw the new Simple Stories Say Cheese Halloween, I just about fell off my chair. It combines my love of magic and Halloween into one collection!
Magical Halloween Cards with Glitz Glitter Gel
I used some Glitz Glitter Gel both with and without a stencil to show how completely awesome this stuff is. I really can’t say enough about how I love my Glitz!

Magical Halloween Cards
For my first card, I combined two Glitter Gels together. And I used my Stencil Pal to make it even easier on me. I mean, how awesome is that stencil? This one is going to be used again and again in my house! I used some of the stickers that came in the Collection. But, I added some ink to the top of them to soften them up a bit. I used black card stock on all of my cards, so the bright white of the stickers just didn’t work. No problem – I just added some ink!
This is another card with the stencil and collection pieces, but I only used Sweet Mango instead of combining it with Wild Lilac this time. How much fun are those stickers? Plus, I added in some of the Bits & Pieces that coordinate. It’s All Just a Bunch of Hocus Pocus!!! 🙂
Next up, I wanted to do something a little different. I really struggle with mixed media or using supplies in a non-organized way. I think I love stencils because I have more control over what I’m doing. So, I forced myself to just slap down some Glitz Glitter Gel using my Stencil Pal and palette knife (I used both). I wasn’t sure if I would be happy, but I ended up really loving the result, especially the Black on Black!
I used the same supplies and Collection in all four cards, but they all look different! Two of them have more of that magical feeling and the other two are straight-up Halloween! Now that I’ve made these cards, the decorations are going up! It’s September, so it’s not too early, right?
