Stretch Your Dies And Add A Ghost

the card

Hello everyone! I’m up at the Kat Scrappiness blog with another Halloween card. To change things up a little, I used a non-Halloween sentiment to show you how you could stretch your dies too πŸ™‚ I started by die-cutting the white background piece and some black card stock with Kat’s rope die and added the Lawn Fawn house border to the black piece. Now I die-cut a mask for the moon and adhered it to the white background piece. I blended Wilted Violet and Seedless Preserves Distress Ink back and forth till I had the coverage that I wanted.

I just made that up, but with all the snarky stamps that I bought just recently, I thought that we need a festivity for that πŸ˜› It’s still enough time for Halloween, so I started the Snarktoberfest with a very snarky Halloween card.

I thought that this one is just hilarious πŸ™‚ I started by die-cutting a piece of water color card stock and stamping the sentiment with …

Not For Easily Scared Readers – Spooky Halloween with So Suzy Stamps

Contagion

Happy Halloween everyone! I’m up on the So Suzy blog and wanted to share a simple but spooky Halloween card with you πŸ™‚ I started by cutting a black piece of card stock and preparing it with the anti-static tool. Then I stamped the Contagion stamp using Versamark ink and sprinkled white embossing powder on top. I use the Michael’s brand and love it! Tipp: to remove the white access from the anti-static tool that is especially visible on black paper, use a regular eraser and carefully “erase” the powder. The card was too black for my liking, so I …

Happy Halloween with Kat

Welcome to my first blog article with the Kat Scrappiness Design Team. To say I’m thrilled would be an understatement. I love her shop and everything she does for us crafters! So let’s get started, shall we? I wanted to create a rather simple Halloween card with Kat Scrappiness sequins being the focus. So I decided to keep the background settled. I cut a piece of black card stock (5.5″x4″), two stripes from last years Lawn Fawn paper pack and the Happy Halloween sentiment from the Cheery Lynn die. Now I dipped the sentiment into the Versamark ink pad, sprinkled …

Hello, I’m up on the So Suzy Blog with a new Design Team card, woohoo! I created a similar card for the birthday of my Design Team friend Olesya last month and thought that you might enjoy it.

Now I blended four Distress ink colors over the entire card panel. I went back and forth with the colors a couple of times till I had the …
