This sullen Halloween Trick-or-Treater (who really reminds me of the little brother in "A Christmas Story) comes from Creative Vision Stamps' "Pet Monsters" set. The image is stamped then colored with Copic markers and mounted with a sentiment on some pretty plaid paper.
Back with another hit from Creative Vision Stamps' latest release. "Pet Monsters" is a fun mash-up - literally, in the case of that zombie raccoon! - for cute Halloween cards. For this card, I colored the two images with Copic markers and attached them to the Halloween sentiment. I didn't have a spider web die, so I opted for this one with the boxes.
The weather here has been beautiful (read in the low 70's) the past three days, and my mind naturally wanders to Fall. I used The Project Bin's new Halloween set, "Creepy Halloween" to create this wiper card. Wiper card, you say? Why, yes, and here's one of the many tutorials you can use to learn how to make this type of card!
If this were a video, you'd see how pulling on the back sections of the card cause the sentiment to pop-up from inside the structure of the card. Any further message you'd like to send the recipient could be written on the back of the card.
I read a lot of dystopian and science fiction, so the zombies in the "Creepy Halloween" set really filled a void in my stamp collection. What are you waiting for? I can hear the set calling your name!
I'm not prone to playing favorites among my five nieces - that could backfire in a big way! - but the niece who is getting this card is just coming into her own and deserves a special card, She is kid #3 out of four and has two older sister who each excel in their own ways, and then there's the baby sister.
So this card, image by Mo Manning and sentiment from Club Scrap, was created specifically with her in mind. I colored with Copic markers (less my brand new E53 which would have really helped tone down some of the peachiness of the skin) and used a scandalous amount of Wink of Stella to add shine and sparkle.
Happy birthday, Reese!
I'm playing along with the Crafts Galore Encore challenge as well as the Mo Manning's!
Stella on the bats and the brooms, two orange rhinestones, and Souffle pen outlining the bats and the sentiment. I think I'll go as a banana this year, which will justify a stop at Dairy Queen for a banana split. Like I NEEDED justification, right?!
More cards from the in-between-blogs days!
Since I was between blogs when Halloween came around, here is what I sent out. I just l-o-v-e this image from Dilly Beans Stamps. He was great fun to color and I think he wears green as well Elphaba from Wicked ! I gave him some red-rimmed eyes, too, which is kind of creepy even though he's cute as heck!
If you haven't shopped with Dilly Beans, I highly recommend it for cute monstrosities!
