Default How to UN-Halloween for October

I have been asked to teach an October stamp class. We will make 5 cards.I have been asked to make it "festive" without making it concretely Halloween. There are several in the group who, due to their beliefs, find witches or skeletons or anything like that distasteful so I need to make sure there are no Halloween cards in the bunch. I thought I could do a pumpkin card and a scarecrow one. Any other ideas for the others?

Apple picking
Leaves changing color (the old as seasons change so do we kind of thing)
Sunflowers - for some reason I always think fall when I see these

The apple in Fresh Fruits, Fall Whimsy, Autumn Leaf Prints, Lovely as a Tree, all come to mind.

Thanks for the great ideas. Would a black cat be too Halloween, in your opinion? I was thinking I could have Cool Cat pulling the wagon from Wheel Things and put leaves and pumpkins in it.

don't forget loads of love- use pumpkins in back, agree with lovely as a tree using fall background colors either with spectrum pad or pastels, acorns are good too!

Nary a one of my customers likes Halloween and neither do I, so I do Loads of Love with the pumpkins, used to use the Plaidmaker with it and it was very autumnal : )
I also do Fall Whimsy, usually a pocket card with Poppin' Pastels and give them the choice of adding the happy Thanksgiving from All Year Cheer III. Or maybe use the adorable dbl sided paper with the seasons on it? Very cute!
Good luck!

I would bet that those opposed to Halloween would be opposed to Cool Cat, being as she is "cat" and you would stamp her in "black"! KWIM? I think it would be really cute, but unless you know your customers well, it could be construed as "Halloween", and not Autumn or festively October

As posters have already mentioned, any of the leaf sets would be great. How about doing the thumping technique on Lovely as a Tree? Trudee has a great sample in her gallery! HTH

All Natural witht he leaf and acorn would work as well. Anything with Fall colors and a harvest theme would work.

Couldn't you give them the option of stamping Cool Cat in black or brown? I don't do Halloween and with the color option I think it would be cute!

How about Cool Cat sitting amongst a pile of Autumn Leaves or even a pile of apples?

I don't do Scary Halloween that much either, I'm more a scarecrow, fall theme. But I do like Cute Halloween stuff. Smiling Jack-O-Lanterns instead of Scary Jack-O-Lanterns.

I'm glad you got me thinking Halloween or Fall, I haven't even started and this gives me an idea and lets me use Cool Cat.

Scarecrows work, too! "Happy Fall Y'all" is an older set with a scarecrow. Maybe you can find someone to borrow it from if you don't have it.

You can use the acorn/leaf wheel and cut out a few of them and pop them up with dimensionals....or use pearlex powders on the leaves to make them fall colors that glow....looks lovely.

Candy corn!! Y'know, I'm glad you brought this up. I'm not a Halloween fan either. My customers are, though, and I have Stamp Camps every month. For the past two years, I've done mostly fall-ish stuff using Carved and Candlelit, crayon resist with Fall Whimsy (or that Leaves Awash wheel!), and Loads of Love with pumpkins in the back (Happy Harvest sentiment).

But.... Jeepers.... How do I say this??? This year I have fallen in love with Booglie Eyes!!! So my customers know I'm not big on Halloween (because it's gotten so much more ghastly since my kids were little and went trick-or-treating and dressed up like cats or a princess or whatever), but I couldn't resist this set, which is on its way to me as I type! I hope they won't think I've lost it! <g> I still really don't like witches, but I LOVE the ghost image the most, and I think the spider is adorable. And I like the sentiment too.

i have been teachign my four year old about halloween.
the whole Jack with the turnip in the woods to scare off the devil is a little much for him but he is understanding the jack o lattern is supposed to "scare the scaries away" as he says.
sad that halloween has become as commercialized as it has....

How about trolls? Everyone loves trolls.

Or are they considered the male version of a witch?

Not sure if this matters for the type of class you are teaching, but Wheel Thing will not be available in October should anyone want to purchase it.

I love Booglie Eyes, too!!! I'm still not going to make Halloween cards with it, but will use it for funny cards throughout the year. The little vampire cracks me up!!! Haven't got it yet. But I will, oh I will.
