Drink Up!

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! Are you ready for some fun Halloween images? It's the perfect time to get your Halloween on. It'll be here before you know it then it's a slippery slope into the holidays. Yikes! That's almost as scary as Halloween! 

My card is all on one layer... a little masking & coloring was about all it took. The wine bottle & an extra glass were stamped separately & fussy cut.  I sponged on the 2 Distress inks around the edges to give a little bit of an eerie look & drew the drips from the words. Now the only question is..are you drinking from the wine bottle or the magic potions??? Hmmmm??
Here's a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

paper:  Staples 110# white, black
ink:  Memento tuxedo black, Distress Ink pumice stone, peeled paint
accessories:  Misti, Copic markers, Rubbernecker Stitched Rectangles dies


Haunted Pop-Up

>> Thursday, September 20, 2018

Good morning!

This is a pop up card for Halloween using DRS stamps:
"Halloween, It's a scream" on the outside
and using dies from Karen Burniston.

Inside I used DRS stamps: Ghost Boo, RIP Tombstone, Empty Web

I colored the Boo with Oxide inks and a brush and the ghost are
 stamped and cut out of vellum. I stamped the branch in the background
and also on a piece of white then cut it out for the tree.  The tombstone 
is stamped, cut out and glued inside the yard on one of the pop up tabs.
The web is stamped all over the house.

This funny card uses DRS stamps: Scary Skull and Eyes For You
with some fun DIFFERENT colors for Halloween.
This guy is watching you wherever you go, eeek!

Thanks for visiting today!


Halloween in Pinks

>> Wednesday, September 19, 2018

Some awesome new Halloween stamps in the store this week.  Here is a peek at a few of them. 

I am in a pink and black mood right now after seeing some really pretty Christmas cards in those colors.  I thought they would be good Halloween colors as well. 

My first card is made with the new Scary Skull image and the Expect the Unexpected Greeting (I can see a bunch of cards for lots of occasions with this new greeting). I doodled on the skulls and made them into Sugar Skulls so they would look a bit more at home with my lace.  My bg and the skull paper were made by dipping some plain white cardstock in some ink mixed with water.  I painted up some cardboard and sponged on some black for the top panel.

I used that same base paper for my next card.  I stamped the new Iron Fence and Gate along with the Deco Happy Halloween Greeting.  I also used the Silhouette Cat on Moon image to add a bit of fun.
Some sponging added a spooky night feel. 

Hope your week is going well.




Drink Up Witches

>> Tuesday, September 18, 2018

Hi Everyone,

I've got a sneak peek for you today!  DRS Designs has some super fun new Halloween stamps coming your way this week, and for today's card share,  I've paired one of them up with a few stamps from the current catalog.

The Drink Up Witches (721G) stamp is one of the newbies, and I stamped, colored and die cut it out, adding a black mat. I did the same thing using the Witch Feet stamp and set them aside while I embossed the background using a grapes embossing folder (Darice).  Since DRS Designs also has a 
Bunch of Grapes stamp, I stamped and colored up a strip that I bordered with some drippy green goo.  

I assembled the card and added some glitter to the drink and embellished the buckle on the witch hat using a gold gel pen. 

I carried the beverage theme to the inside of the card simply by using these two stamps:

Be sure to stop by the store for all the new releases on September 19th!  The Halloween season is upon us, so feel free to bust open that candy and start stamping :)

Have a great day!


Expect the Unexpected!!

>> Monday, September 17, 2018

Happy Monday! Hope you had a great weekend! DRS Designs is about to release some new Halloween images and greetings which I think you will like. My card today features a new greeting, Expect the Unexpected (751E) on the front and a new image and another greeting on the inside, but first the outside...

The greeting, accent bats and Silhouette graveyard were all stamped with Versafine Black ink, heat embossed with clear EP and then Distress inks were sponged on for the sky and ground.

On the inside the new Deco Halloween greeting (707E) was stamped with Versafine Black ink and then I added the Scary Skull (712G), which was stamped, colored and fussy cut. I used an Action Wobbler so when you open the card it kind of pops out at you and moves around a bit. I like the effect.

Be sure to check back all this week to see more new images from the DT Members. Check the on line store here on Wednesday for the new images.

Thanks for stopping by,

I have a sneak peek at a new Halloween image today - yeah!    We'll actually be releasing 7 new images that will be available on our website on Wednesday.  Our new Boo! image is probably my favorite, but I will admit that once I got all the new images home and started stamping I didn't stop until I had used each and every one of them (think 11 1/2 hours of stamping fun)!

My card today is using our new Boo! image that I stamped on a piece of scrap card stock, cut out the center portions with a blade and then colored (using watercolor pencils) and fussy cut.  I adhered the Boo! to a piece of yellow card stock and then embossed some white and orange paper with my swiss dots folder and attached them above and below and trimmed them to fit.  For my candy corn borders I stamped our Candy Corn Border on white 6 times and colored and fussy cut just the 3 pieces of candy corn that are overlapping each other and attached them together covering my paper edges and mounted all on white and then a folded bright green folded card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!


Trick or Treat Jack

 Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! I'm so ready for fall! This has to be one of the warmest, most HUMID summers we've had since we've lived in Georgia. Now they're telling us we may get a bunch of rain from Florence after she'd finished w/ the Carolinas. rain boots have really had a work out this summer. Sigh.. 

So despite the swampy weather, I have a Halloween card today. I'm using one of my fave images, this Happy Pumpkin, but I always call him Jack.  I love his jaunty hat & big grin. After I colored him & die cut him I added a narrow purple layer. The background was embossed w/ 2 different folders. I wish you could see it in is SOOOO sparkly. I went over all the high points w/ a Versamarker then heat embossed them w/ a black sparkly powder.
I stamped just part of a large greeting & embossed it as well. Then I used a small rounded oval die to cut it. 

Here's a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.
