Halloween Puzzles

Several people asked me to make a Halloween puzzle for their children. These are what I made this weekend. The craft puzzles are all 5" x 7" from

Witch image (Night of the Witch - 2812K) is from Penny Black ( and the word phrases are all from The Angel Company. All images were stamped in pigment ink and clear embossed.

This pumpkin image is from Peddler's Pack. I found it yesterday on my stamp store road trip at Kathy John's in Storrs, CT - with my good friend Sue Macken!! I stippled Pumpkin Stazon ink in the pumpkin image and Dove Gray Stazon around the image. The yellow is just a Marvy Brush Marker clear embossed. Oh, to get the yellow inside the pumpkin I cut the eyes, nose, and mouth out.

The scary tree and graveyard image (Ghostly Night - 3218K) is from Penny Black ( and the kid in the ghost costume is from Too Much Fun Rubber Stamps ( I stamped and embossed the left image first, then stamped the kid, masked him, and stamped the right image over him/her. The background colors are all different inks that I stippled over the images.

This is the Peddler's Pack pumpkin again but this time I used an orange and yellow Marvy brush marker on the pumpkin and clear embossed. The edging is stippled Dove Gray Stazon ink.
