I made this artist trading card using an image from the Creepy Canning sheet, which contains all sorts of crazy jars filled with eyeballs and heads. Someone made a card from one of these, and sent it while I was laid up last year, and it cracked me up!
These Graveyard Wrappers are possibly the silliest matchbox wraps I’ve designed. They turn standard matchboxes into tiny graves, complete with tombstones and little skellie inhabitants. They’d make great decorations, or place cards for a party.
I love to use words in my work, which is why there’s such an odd collection of word and alphabet sheets here at Ten Two Studios. This card, for example, was made using the Halloween Sayings Tickets, Halloween Bingo Cards, and Halloween Word Art. All three sheets are very handy if you already have tons of Halloween images, and just need an artfully designed sentiment to go with them.

We all know that Lizzie Borden rhyme, don’t we? Well, that’s what inspired me to create not one, but two different Lizze Borden shrines for the Notorious Woman issue of Bad Influence.
The Lizzie Borden Shrine above, and the Lizzie Borden Standing Shrine below, both pay homage to the axe-wielding murderess (or unjustly accused woman). She’s the perfect centerpiece for some creepy Halloween decorating!

Want to wear a little Halloween around your neck? Try these easy domino pendants, made using the Grave Standard Dominoes sheet.
A quick how-to: just cut out the image you want to use, and apply it to a standard domino using a little matte medium. Seal with your favorite clear sealer, in matte or glossy. Decorate with glitter and rhinestones. Glue a long, flat bead to the top of the dom with E6000, and thread a piece of satin cord through it when it’s dry.
