A Month of Spookdays: Halloween Trading Cards

Happy Halloween LTC

I have a hobby called letterboxing. It’s a treasure hunt where you hand-carve rubber stamps and leave them in interesting places for others to find. Then you go find theirs. An adjunct to this hobby is the Letterbox Trading Card.  It’s like an Artist Trading Card, but it must include a hand-carved stamp. This year, I planted a series of boxes just for the month of October, and I used the stamps to make a set of cards. I used neon embossing powders from Zing on these, hoping they would fluoresce. For the most part, they do:

If you’d like to hunt my series, you have until the first part of November before I pull the boxes. Follow the link above to find out more about the hobby before you venture out, then use my clues to find the treasure.

  1. We are avid geocachers and have come across a few letterbox caches but nothing can compare with your ATC’s! I love your blog, so full of creativity. I look forward to seeing what you come up with during October!

    Thank you! Interestingly, the first folks to go for these boxes went the wrong way on the second one, and found a geocache instead. 🙂

  3. Wow! These are the coolest things ever! When I personally think of stamps not much comes to mind, just how I always manage to get ink on my hands :P.

    After seeing your pictures and I think I will have a different image come to mind from now on.

    Very cool!

    Happy Halloween too!
