Mummy Halloween

This stamp set “Cookie-Cutter Halloween” is so much fun and addicting.  It sure makes for a quick way to put together a card in no time.  I recently saw a sample on Pinterest where the this image (mummy) was turned into a ninja by coloring in the image but the eyes with the Basic Black marker.  This image also makes for a great get well card too!  I am going to cross my finders that this stamps survives the retirement list.

I added a small piece of DSP as well as some Designer Washi Tape to the inside of the card.  This added some interest as well as some fun for the eyes!

Trick or Treat

I CASEd this card from page 53 of the Holiday Catalog, I love the look of the spider web on the Basic Black Cardstock layer.  To create this look, rub the Embossing Buddy over the Basic Black Cardstock to prevent extra powder from sticking to your project.  Stamp the spider web image from the Ghoulish Grunge Stamp Set in VersaMark Ink and stamp on Basic Black Cardstock on all the corners and sides.  Pour Clear Embossing Powder over the stamped image and shake off excess.  Then use the Heat Tool to set for a glossy raised image.

Vampires, Witches, & Ghosts, Oh My!

There are so many elements on this card that I am in love with.  My first love is the Seasonal Decorative Masks, you can create your own background design with a sponge or spritzing tool.  It would also make for some fun tissue paper and gift wrapping as well.  My other love are the Halloween Night Enamel Dots, they look so good to eat and remind me of the candy dots I would get as a child.  I wonder if they still make those?

Hello there and welcome back for the Stamp It Group’s blog hop ~ Halloween!

Today I’m sharing my super creepy hand box and 31 card.  I wanted to create something ghoulishly frightening and I feel that I have accomplished it with this box.  I love the creepy hands, it looks like they are reaching out to grab you!  This box and card makes for a perfect Halloween gift for that older teen that enjoys the blood and gore of the Walking Dead!

Here are some close up pictures of the project.

Here is the package of creepy hands that I bought several years ago from the dollar store.  Not sure if they still carry them around this time of year but maybe a quick Google search, you might get lucky.

Howl-o-ween Treat Box

This little box was fun to make and I will be honest, not something that I would mass produce with all of the die cut pieces.  This is the perfect sized box to fill with some small treats or trinkets!  I was inspired by the owl seen on page 49 of the Holiday Catalog.

Once, again I used some left over pieces from the Witching Decor Project Kit.  Have you checked out this kit yet?  It is sure a great value, you can create one fabulous Halloween witch hat and tons of left over pieces to use for other projects.

 

I fussy-cut the raven to pop him up a bit on the card.
