Black card base cut with Simon Says Stamp Illuminary Circles die and embossed with Sheena Douglas Twisted Vine folder.  I backed the cut circle with neon green card.  I cut Sizzix Spooky witch and Cheery Lynn Cauldron and Cat using shades of black and green.

31 Days of Halloween Day 18 - 2020 20 Limit

Hello Spooktacular friends.  It is my tradition to have a thanksgiving/harvest/pumpkin party the last Saturday in the month, which this year is the 31st.  Due to 'the situation' I am limited to 20 people this year, as opposed to inviting everyone.  So here's the invite.  Sorry, it's not for you.  Maybe next year.  HUGZ


I've cut the cards with a rectangle stitch die.  The invitation stamp is from Inspired By Stamping Halloween Labels set.   Frank is a Frantic Stampers die, cut and coloured with Promarkers.  Frank is pissed that it's not gonna be a mega party this year but he's looking forward to the Chicken Red Curry soup.

31 Days of Halloween Day 17 - Pussy and Pumpkin

Welcome moonlight walkers.  Here's a little black cat and pumpkin.

I've used a MME card to make the card base which I grunged up with Walnut Stain distress ink.  I stamped the round pumpkin from Inspired by Stamping Pumpkin Faces set onto the card and coloured with Promarkers.  I stamped Carmen's Veranda Witches Go Riding sentiment on light beige card and added a black layer before adding it to the card.  The cat is a MME chipboard element.

Pink and Glittery Christmas

Hello Nomad friends.  I made a quick Christmas card using Rubber Dance Coming Home stamp set.  Love these winter themed houses.  You even get a church and a toy shop!!  I went all pink and blingy.

I stamped the church, masked and stamped the two houses.  I used a pink card panel and pink Cactus archival ink.  Then I coloured with distress markers and iridescent glitter glue.  It's blingy! I mounted the panel on a gold textured foil card base.  Hop over to the Rubber Dance blog for masses of amazing inspiration from the team and don't forget to share your makes featuring Rubber Dance stamps in our fan group.

31 Days of Halloween Day 16 - Every House Needs A Cat

Hello Spooktastic friends.  A very quick make tonight using some gorgeous designer paper I have been saving for some special occassion.  Decided tonight was the night.  Mark it in your diaries.

I used a black DL card base and added a panel of Pion Design Witching Hour Haunted House paper.  Then I stamped Sheena Douglas Pawprint Memories cat on white card, fussy cut and let her loose in the garden.

You Shine So Bright

Hello Nomad friends.  Finally getting around to joining the pink fad that is October.  It's breast cancer awareness month so check your boobies, like you should every month.  Here's a little pink and encouragement from me.

I struggled and failed to get a photo that looks as good as the real card.  Couldn't get the contrast right or the hot pink ribbon.  Please extrapolate.   I've used Scrap the Rainbow card sketch, cos I think it's cool.  I cut four Poppystamps Large Sugarplum Fairy without her wings from various pink papers.  Well, actually I cut a huge number, but picked four I think went together.  Two plain pink and two from two different Do-craft Pampered Pets patterned paper.  I used a patterned card base from the Works Magic Moment stack.  The sentiment panel is from a preprinted sheet by Tilda.  The ribbon is hot pink satin with a pink organza top layer printed with white heats and satin edges.  I added three tiny pink star rhinestones to the side of the sentiment panel.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz

31 Days of Halloween Day 15 - A Bat-tallion of Bats

Hello Nomad friends.  31 Days of Halloween continues here, on the Lost Coast Portal to Creativity and many other place in the between.  Today is the 15th so a new challenge starting at the Lost Coast Portal to Creativity and, as is our habit, we try to offer a mid month alternative for people who are not so spooktastically inclined.  So we've gone for Furry Friends.  Remember to use real rubber or clear stamping and the theme and you are good to go.  It doesn't have to be Halloweeny if you don't want.  Here's my spooky furry, out in the moonlit woods.  

I black heat embossed Lost Coast Designs Tall Trees Background and ink blended with distress inks.  I stamped, coloured and fussy cut Lost Coast Designs Werewolf and added him to the scene.  The postman brought me some new tiny little bats from my crafty friend Jo in the UK so I decided to glue a few amid the trees.  Lost a few as they pinged out of the tweezers.  I am sure they will turn up sometime, or not LOL.  In case you are interested Alenes tacky glue seemed to do a very good job of holding these tiny bat shaped sequins in place.  

Thanks for dropping by.  If you are a fan of all things spooky the 31 Days of Halloween at the Lost Coast Portal to Creativity is well worth a visit.  Th team are really knocking it out of the park with their amazing makes.  See you there.......
