Batty Boo - 31 Days of Halloween Day 20

Merry met midnight friends. 

I used a piece of MME Something Wicked paper.  It is grungy cream with Something Wicked This Way Comes in a nice gothic black script all over and some black glitter stars and bats.  I folded it into a pillow box and inked all the edges with brown Archival ink.  I used a Sizzix die to cut some extra black glitter bats.  Then I made the tag!!  I used a scrap of brown card, cut with a small Taylored Expressions tag die and stenciled some bats using Tando Haunted House stencil and brown chalk ink.  I stamped Tim Holtz bat on the same brown card using the brown archival ink.  I added him to the tag.


I folded his wings over and when you open then up there's a little boo surprize!!  So cute.

Toil and Trouble - 31 Days of Halloween Day 19

Merry met good folk.  Lost Coast Designs has a 31 Days of Halloween celebration, so link up your stamped Halloween makes for a chance to win Lost Coast Design dollars!  They also have a Pets challenge running.  Your pets can be cute and fluffy, but if they are spooktacular why not link them to both challenges?  Lost Coast Designs is also sponsoring the Penny Black and More challenge where the theme is Pink.  So that's three chances to win Lost Coast design dollars!!   Remember all three of these challenges require real rubber or clear stamping and the theme as the focus of your project.  I decided to try for a pink Halloween card.  Ravens are pets, right???


I cut a hot pink card panel with a stitch rectangle die and used Sizzix Halloween word dies to cut the Toil and Trouble words.  I stamped Lost Coast Designs MRaven2 with black archival.  I rotated the stamp so I could extend the branch, used a black marker to fill in the gaps and coloured with a brown Promarker.  I masked the raven on the branch and stamped the flying MRaven1.  To finish I added a little touch of white gel pen to their eyes.  So who do you think is Toil? and who's Trouble?  LOL.

Movie Night - 31 Days of Halloween Day 18

Merry met midnight stalkers.  The most spooktacular day of the year draws ever nearer.  Pumpkin dude has recruited some friends to remind us of our movie heroes.


I used MME Mischevious patterned paper, cut with a stitch die and edged with distress oxide ink.  I used a Darice Filmstip embossing folder with black card.  I stamped The Greeting Farms Spooktacular rubber stamps, coloured and fussy cut.  I added the characters to the filmstrip and added some sticker words from MME Something Wicked sticker sheet.

Who, Hoo and Whoo - 31 Days of Halloween Day 17

Hello my midnight friends.  Tonight he owls are out in a trio of colour.  I made some Artist Trading Coins using Dylusions Heads and Tails owl.  I like to make my coins in threes and I used slightly different colours for each.


Ears are important to an owl so after I stamped them on grey woodgrain card I cut them so I could have them in front of my circle die when I cut the coins.   Then I coloured with Promarkers.


Using a black Promarker I added two lines for a body and coloured the area between to match the owl colours.


I used a black Promarker to add a slightly different pattern to the background of each coin.

Quick Boris - 31 Days of Halloween Day 16

Hello spooktacular friends.  I have been teaching a class this evening so it's a quick make from me tonight.  I am loving this amazing Boris Karloff stamp from Carmen's Veranda.  I used it with an action wobble last month and I've gone with green again cos he looks very cool with green.  I still think those are scary eyes!!


So I stamped Boris on white card, coloured the background with green Promarker, adding a bit extra around him as a shadow, and mounted it in a lime green trifold aperture card.  Bwahhhaahahahahahaa.  Scary eyes!!!!
