Neon Boo

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! The big Trick or Treat Day is getting close! I wonder what the costumes of the year will be. Super heroes are always popular..ghosts are easy & witches are a good choice. Speaking of ghosts, I have a whole family of them on my Boo card.

I started out by white embossing the Ghost Boo  on black & tried coloring it in w/ neon pencils but it just wasn't doing it for me. So I stamped them on white & colored them in w/ fluorescent Copics then fussy cut out the black version (inside the white lines) & placed the white colored version behind the cut out. I added a neon pink layer behind it then embossed the Spider Webs & Ghost Family on a larger black panel using white ink & a bright pink powder. They show up really well! Makes me wish I had done it all in the pink powder.
Here's a look at the inside & below it are the Copics & powder I used.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

Good Morning!
My first card is a side step card.
My background is done with Oxide Distress inks from Ranger.
I made a separate tag for the back panel and stamped the 
Silhouette Haunted House on it then did the background
like the rest of the card, masking the moon first.
I then colored the moon and windows.
I die cut a few trees from a Penny Black die set, place one 
on each side of the house and one on the middle step.

and It's A Scream Halloween on a separate piece of white
card stock, colored and fussy cut (the sentiment is die cut
with an oval die.  The Iron fence & Gate is stamped on another
background I colored and glued and is to the front. 

Here is a side view.

My next card is using the Zombie Gal and Zombie Guy on another 
background made with the Oxide Inks.  I used a moon/sun die from Hero Arts
and a tree frame die from Memory Box in the background.  The moon is stamped the Accent Bats and I dded a bat die cut from Spellbinders.
I made a frame of back card stock and stamped it with Spooky Eyes Background and embossed with white powder.
The background between trees is stamped with Silhouette Grave Yard with the Iron Fence stamped over it.  The Beware of Zombies Sign was stamped on another piece of card stock, colored and fussy cut.

Inside I used the tree frame die again and stamped 

That's it folks!
Isn't it nice that it's starting to feel like fall...Yes, the weather
has cooled down finally!!  Yippee!
Thanks for visiting today!


Cute and Spooky

I love how this card came out.  I was super easy as the Silhouette Haunted House  image has so many details - it makes your card look like you stamped bunches of images.  Once I stamped it, I sponged the night sky, colored in the lights of the house and drew on some moonlight touches and stars with a gel pen.  Next I stamped the new Iron Fence & Gate and sponged a moonlit path.  A few ghosts from the Ghost Family Portrait takes down the scare factor a bit. 

Hope your week is going well!




Happy Halloween

Hi Everyone,

I have another Halloween card to share with you today and it's one for those folks that don't do scary or gory for Halloween.  Just cheerful fun!

I stamped and colored up the Fancy Pumpkin, embellishing the buckle with some glitter glue.  After fussy cutting it, I attached it to a couple of die cut circles, embossing one using a spider web embossing folder.

I created the backgrounds using the Spooky Eyes and Starry Background stamps and attached those to an orange card base.  

I stamped and die cut the Deco Happy Halloween, sponging on some yellow and orange ink to coordinate with the other card elements.  

Thanks for visiting today!


Happy Halloween!

Happy Monday everyone. Hope you had a great weekend! It has finally turned cooler and feels like fall here. I'm loving it!

I have a couple of Halloween cards to share with you today. The first one features the new Halloween greetings sentiment.

I started by stamping the goblin, hand and RIP Tombstone images onto purple, orange and green CS with Versafine black onyx ink, die cutting and layering them onto black CS. The purple layer was stamped with the accent bat image using the same black ink. The greeting was stamped onto orange CS and a strip of punched spider webs was attached at the seam of the two panels.

This second card was super easy. I started with a black card base, added the orange layer which is from a Recollections Lasercut Paper Pad I bought on clearance last year. The new Drink Up greeting and Witch's feet image were stamped onto white CS with Memento Black ink, colored with Copics, die cut and layered onto black CS.

Thanks for stopping by today.



Expect the Unexpected

>> Saturday, October 13, 2018


What could be more unexpected that a hand coming out of the ground???  Once I decided that's what I wanted to do on my card I quickly recalled a card Robin had made several weeks ago and I knew I had to "borrow" her torn paper technique - Thanks Robin!!

I started my card by stamping our Spooky Tree with Moon towards the top of a white piece of card stock.  I didn't worry about masking the moon and just sponged on some blues for my nighttime sky.  To cover my now blue moon I stamped the moon on a separate piece of white and colored it with orange and yellow watercolor pencils and used my blender pen to smooth it out, fussy cut it and attached it on my card.
For the ground I tore 3 pieces of black card stock and sponged on some white color box ink along the torn edge and layered them on my card.  Next I stamped our Zombie Hand on scrap and colored and fussy cut it and added it between the torn paper.  The Expect the Unexpected greeting was stamped on white and edged with orange and layered on lime green and attached in the lower left corner and everything was attached to a folded grey card.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! And I hope you weren't in the path of Hurricane Michael! We had a few inches of rain & some windy conditions but nothing too bad. Seems wherever the storms hit this year, we're getting a piece of it here. Not something you expect living in the mountains so far north in the state. 
Skullduggery..isn't that a super word for Halloween? And I thought it went well with my skulls. On this first one, I stamped it on white, then used a Copic multiliner pen to draw all the patterns before coloring them in. I used a white paint pen to add more teeth & some white dots. The spider web was stamped multiple times on the black using persimmon oxide ink. Love how it gives it a spooky glow. 
stamps: DRS Designs -  Scary Skull It’s a ScreamEmpty Spider Web (inside: Deco Halloween Greetings )
paper:  Staples 110# white, black, X-Press It white
ink:  Memento tuxedo black, Distress oxide ink ripe persimmon
accessories:  Copic markers, Copic multiliner pen, ODBD pierced rectangles & pierced circles dies, Sizzix ornate labels & mini skull dies
Now this skull was stamped & I used a flower image to mask & stamp all the flowers before coloring them. For some reason, a little of the orange & red bled into the white areas so I ended up fussy cutting all of the white areas out. That must have been the trick part of the trick or treat. The iron fence was stamped across multiple layers & I had to put them all in the Misti to accomplish this. I used a little temporary tape to hold the layer together, stamped them, then carefully removed the orange layer to stamp the fence again on the white. Otherwise, I don't think I could have lined them up so well. 
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
