Got Peepers Halloween

It's my favorite day of the year but it always makes me a little sad when posting my final Halloween card of the season. 
I hope everyone has a FRIGHTFULLY fun Halloween tonight!

For my spooky little kitty card, I started off by using the Star Galaxy stencil and sponged white ink onto a black matte.

Then I used the circle from the Shaker Maker Combo die as a frame around the main image. 

For the main image I stamped the fence and tree branch from the Attempted Murder set and colored them with Copic markers. 

For the Got Peepers kitty I stamped him twice, once sitting on the fence, and then again on a scrap piece of card stock. I colored the scrap one with pencils and (yikes!) cut off his head (well, after all this is a Halloween post). I popped that up on foam tape and placed it over the fence stamped image for a little extra dimension.

The pumpkins are from the Build a Pumpkin Patch die set. I just sponged a little ink on the edges and colored the stems with a brown marker and tucked them into the edge.

Once I had the main image completed I stamped the sentiment and matted everything onto a light blue card base.

Addicted to Halloween

For my post today I combined some new, and some older Whimsy products to turn the Addicted to Rubber Stamps t-shirt into a Halloween t-shirt. I'm addicted to both rubber stamps, and Halloween so it was the perfect match up.

I first used the new Wavy Pierced Rectangle die to cut out a piece of kraft color cardstock. Then stamped it with brown ink using one of my favorite go-to stamps the Burlap Background.

I stamped the Addicted to Rubber Stamps t-shirt with black ink on orange cardstock, then colored in the bands with a black marker, and sponged the edges with orange ink.
The perfectly sized kitty cat is from the Goth Girl stamp set, and the bats and sentiment are from the Halloweeners stamp set.

I used the new Happy Halloween word die and cut it out 3 times from black cardstock and stacked up the 3 layers for extra dimension.

The pumpkin is from the Headless Horseman set, colored with pencils and fussy cut out. The leaves are from the Build-a-Pumpkin Patch die set with sponged ink on them.

To complete my card I matted everything onto a black card base.
I hope you all are enjoying the Whimsy Stamps 31 Nights of Halloween festivities, there are still prizes to be had including the $100 grand prize!

Zombie Love Forever

 and EVER and EVER and EVER...

How about another Zombie Licious card can never have too many zombies can they?

My first step was to die cut the Wonky Window 2 twice, once from blue card stock and once from grey card stock. I didn't use the frame piece and I just rearranged the wonky pieces into a different huh?!

I stamped the Zombie Licious hands onto Canson cold pressed watercolor paper and used Distress inks to water color them. Once it was dry I added a couple of highlights with a white gel pen and fussy cut them out.

I stamped the ZOMBIE word with Memento black ink and colored it with Copic markers then I used the same Wonky Window 2 die and cut the word out with just the long strip portion. You can of course also do this step in reverse by cutting the die strip out first then stamping the word, and then coloring it.


To complete my card I stamped the sentiments onto the small wonky pieces and adhered all the pieces to a black card base. And popped the hands up with foam tape.
