Spooky, Spooky - Some Halloween Inspiration

Happy Hump-Day and welcome to my blog. It's all about Halloween at the moment here on my blog. Today I have another card to share which I made using some of the new Whimsy Stamps September products.

For the background I used the Grass & Cloud Edger die set and a blank mylar sheet to create my own cloud stencil. I then inked the clouds using distress inks and a cosmetic brush. To complete my background I stamped the graveyard scene from the NEW Halloween Scream clear set with Versafine Clair Nocturne ink.

I used the NEW Arched Window die to create my spooky window scene as well as the NEW Dracula Going Batty die set. The sentiment is also from the NEW Halloween Scream clear set.

Here is a link list of all the Whimsy products I've used to create my spooky card:

Whimsy Stamps September Release - Falling Leaves and a Pumpkin Shaker

Hello Crafty Friends! I'm a bit late this month sharing my release creations. Hurricane Dorian is to blame for that! We are safe and made it through the storm without any damage to the house this time, yay!! We are utmost thankful for that and are feeling horrible for everyone who was not so lucky and got hit hard by this catastrophic storm. <3 

On my first release creation I used the beautiful NEW Falling Leaves BG stamp and NEW Build-a-Pumpkin Patch die set. As well as the older Thanks Word and Shadow die.

I stamped the Falling Leaves BG onto Strathmore Tan Mixed Media paper with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with white embosing powder. Then I colored the BG using Brusho paint powder. Colors I used are: Leaf Green, Yellow, Orange, Scarlet and Dark Brown.

To create the shaker I used the large pumpkin die from the Build-a-Pumpkin Patch die set. I die cut the pumpkin twice from orange glitter cardstock. I hand cut a window in one of the pumpkindie cuts using a craft knife and covered it from the backside with a piece of clear film. I used Shaker Maker Foam Tape to assemble the shaker. The filling is made from mini pumpkin and leave die cuts included with the Build-a-Pumpkin Patch die set and various Sparkletz and sequins.

The leaves around the pumpkin shaker are also die cut using the Build-a-Pumpkin Patch die set and then colored with Brusho's. To give them some more detail I clear embossed them and added sprinkles of Fran-tage shabby chic embosing powder to some. For the sentiment I used the Thanks Word and Shadow die , black cardstock and glossy white cardstock.
