Snarktoberfest Halloween snark with So Suzy Stamps

halloween snark wit So Suzy Stamps

Yes! Halloween is right around the corner and I can’t wait. Thanks to yesterday’s Friday the 13th I’m in a scary mood, so I had to create some spooky cards! And because I’m still celebrating Snarktoberfest, I had to be Halloween snark πŸ˜‰ Do you know the situation – you see something that you like and would love to try, but you can’t get it or have to pay horrendous shipping fees? I had that situation with the Paper Artsy products. Thankfully the wait is over, because I finally found them here in the US. Of course, I had to …

Ooozing eyeballs on a Halloween canvas with Art Anthology

Halloween canvas with Art Anthology

How about a mixed media Halloween canvas with oozing eyeballs and poison paste? Art Anthology products are perfect for drippy backgrounds and thick texture alike. And it’s still enough time to create some more spooky things – despite all the Christmas decoration that is already up in my grocery store. I’m a fan of these smaller, card sized projects and love to decorate a canvas like that. The smaller area makes it easier to get started, but also challenges you to “organize” your space better. So let me show you what I did with this little canvas. And? Oozing enough? …

Customized 3-tier Halloween cupcake stand

Halloween cupcake stand

Hi everyone, I’m so glad to share my second guest design team post for Deflecto with you. Today I want to share my Halloween cupcake stand and it’s going to be yummy! I’m using the 3-Tier Dessert Stand as the base and the Mini Sign Holders in two different sizes (2×3 and 3×4) for parts of the decoration. I started with decorating the 3 levels of the 3-Tier Dessert Stand using Mod Podge and tissue paper. Thankfully I had the right Halloween colors laying around. I simply spread out the Mod Podge on the base using a simple brush and …

Layered Halloween cards using spooky So Suzy Stamps

Layered Halloween cards using spooky So Suzy Stamps

Last year So Suzy Stamps release a bunch of very spooky and different looking Halloween stamps. Because Halloween is my favorite season (in case you haven’t figured that out yet), I had to grab them this year again and create some fun, layered Halloween cards. In case you missed last years release video, you can find it here. Today’s cards are using a variety of layering techniques. I used some patterned paper, created my own patterns with stencils and combined all of these to create spooky Halloween cards. The sentiments from So Suzy stamps fit perfectly for the outside and …

Kitten on a broom – a cute Halloween card using Clarity Stencil Brushes

The Greeting Farm flying kitten Halloween card

Last year I missed out on one of the cutest Halloween stamps – Scaredy cat from The Greeting Farm. It has the most adorable Halloween kittens in the set. My favorite? The kitten on a broom! But I got my hands on it, finally πŸ˜› That’s why I immediately had to use it for one of my Halloween projects. I stamped all the kittens a while ago and colored them while I was watching TV. That’s why the coloring process is not part of my video tutorial. But everything else is. I hope you enjoy this Halloween project (and aren’t …

Hi everyone, I’m super excited that Halloween is coming closer. It’s my favorite season of the year and I usually can’t wait to get my crafty Halloween projects started πŸ™‚ Some of this year’s releases really got me, for example the one from Tim Holtz. That new set is awesome and I knew that I wanted to create some tags with it!

How to create quick and easy backgrounds for spooky Halloween cards

Sppoky Halloween Cards with Art Anthology and Sizzix

It’s about time for spooky Halloween cards and today I’m using my Art Anthology Colorations sprays and Velvet paints to create a couple of them. These cards are great, if you need to create several of them at the same time. You can just use the sprays to color the backgrounds and when you’re finished with that step, the first background is already dry and you can continue with step 2. Brilliant πŸ˜‰ At the end you just need to add some spooky Halloween shapes, like the new Tim Holtz ones. If you want to see all the steps for …

Spooky Halloween Art Journal Page

Spooky Halloween

Welcome back to my blog πŸ™‚ The last week was a little hectic at work (yay!!! It was way to boring before that πŸ˜› ), so I just had a little time to craft every evening. That was perfect for this page as several things needed to dry over night. It’s a little harder for me to describe how I created this spooky Halloween page. I tried a lot of things, sprayed some ink here and smeared some paint there and at the end, this is what it looked like. So, I’m sorry for the lack of instructions this time …

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. After …

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 …
