TGIF everybody!

Well here we are at Halloween weekend already, sheesh... where did the month go? I really wanted to get another Roberto's Rascals on a card before the holiday was long gone and this time I inked up the li'l skeleton from the Creepy Crawlies set. He looks so happy and excited for the big day just dreaming about all the goodies to be had. I paired Mr. Bone Jangles up with paper and washi tape from the Doodlebug Boos and Brews collection. I really love this eyeball paper and think it gives the card a haunted house party kind of vibe.

Ok friends, have a fun and safe Halloween!  :)

Happy, happy...

Hey there!

When I got my hands on these adorable bats from Impronte d'Autore I knew that I wanted to use them on Halloween cards. To make that work I did a bit of altering because the original image has him offering a strawberry to his sweetie, which isn't very Halloweeny. It was easy enough to fussy cut the strawberry off and replace it with the October cupcake from the Papertrey Ink Baker's Dozen set. If that isn't the perfect treat after all the Halloween tricks that I'm sure these two have perpetrated, I don't know what is. ;)

Ok, time for me to get ready for the day.

Spooky, creepy...


Another day, another Halloween card made for another challenge. This one is for the 'Spookalicious' challenge at Tiddly Inks and I printed out the new Halloweeny Molly for the occasion. I mean who can resist all that glorious hair, it was so much fun to color. She's such a magical little witch that I was inspired to pull out a stencil and inked up a glowing background for her to bask in. Then I added some pretty glitter paper and glitter bats for added sparkle and the card really came together. I think that Molly is sure to cast a spell on anyone who might get this card in the mail.  ;)

Wicked Halloween...

Hi gals!

It's the last week before Halloween and I am in full spook mode. Today I am playing along in the Kraftin' Kimmie 'Halloween' challenge. Vampire Queen had been inked up and ready to get on a card for quite some time so I decided this was her year. Right away I knew that I wanted to pair her up with this great moon stamp from Altenew and then I came across this tombstone border stamp in my stash and the light bulb went off. How creepy, cool does this royal vampire look as she sashays her way through the cemetery? I know that I would most certainly want to avoid catching her gaze on a moonlit night... yipes! What a fun scene this was to create.  :)

Well, time for me to scoot...
Supply list:
cardstock- Bazzill and Copic X-Press It

Dance and gleam...

Hello, hello!

I’ve got a sweet Halloween card to share with you today. There are certainly many fantastic Halloween stamps and digis to be found in the TGF store but it can be just as much fun to take a character that wasn’t intended for the holiday and transform them into a terrific trick or treater. That’s what I did with little Joni from the Hatter Bean kit. The over-the-top costumes of these quirky Beans, with their top hats and exaggerated adornments, make them super easy to color into Halloween cuties. I then added the happy pumpkin from the Peek a Boo set so that Joni would have a friend to keep her company, plus I liked how it tied in to the sentiment that I chose for the card. I also cut the strip of pattern paper to the same width as the sentiment to keep the design nice and tight down the center of the card. 

Ok, hope your week is off to a great start! 
Supply list:
cardstock- Papertrey Ink and Copic X-Press It
paper- KI Memories 
stamps- The Greeting Farm (Hatter Bean kit and Peek a Boo set), Reverse Confetti (sentiment)
ink- Memento tuxedo black and Versafine onyx black
Sticko felt ghost stickers
Copic markers:
skin- E000, E00, E11, R00, R20
hair- N5, N7, N9
clothes/pumpkin- YR31, YR04, YR27, V12, V15, V17, B79, Y000, YR30, Y11, YG13, YG17, YG67

Black cats prowl...


I am running way behind already this morning so I am totally posting this on the fly. These two cute Halloween kitties are from Impronte d'Autore and I really fell in love with them because they remind me of the Sister Stamps cat stamps that I still miss so much. I don't know if it is the same artist behind both companies but either way these sweet stamps have stolen this crazy cat lady's heart. Sure, it's another CAS card from me but I didn't want to distract too much from the little scene that I had created. 

Ok, that was short and sweet... take care everyone!  :) 
Supply list:
cardstock- Papertrey Ink
paper- My Mind's Eye
stamps- Impronte d'Autore (Micino Halloween and Zucca Micio ), Papertrey Ink (sentiment)
ink- Memento tuxedo black
Li'l Inkers stitched rectangle die
Studio Calico wood veneer stars
Wink of Stella clear glitter pen
Copic markers:
cats- W4, W6, W8, 110, R02

Happy Halloween...

Hello again!

Oddtoberfest is still going strong over at Some Odd Girl and I've made this card for blog challenge 2 'let's party'. I imagine that this sultry Vampiress is all dressed up and making her way to a wild and wicked Halloween party. Perhaps she even is a real vampire and she is using this over-the-top costume as a ruse to get close to her partying prey... bwahahahahaha! Yea, it looks like she has way more tricks than treats up her proverbial sleeves. The background is cut from a single sheet of October Afternoon paper which I then stamped the stitches and sentiment directly onto. You can't beat that kind of time saver when you're a lazy crafter like myself.  ;)

Ok then, time for me to scoot. Have a good one!
