Simon Says: Halloween/Spooky





Hi all!Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

This week the theme is

Halloween/Spooky

There are so many fabulous products available for this time of year! Whether you choose to go 'too cute to spook' or dark and scary, we can't wait to see what you create!

The lovely folks over at Simon Says Stamp are generously giving away a FABULOUS $50 voucher to shop at the  Simon Says Stamp Store! All you have to do is take out your crafty supplies, make something following this week’s prompt, and add a link in the Inlinkz at the bottom of this post! You can join 5 times so you could have 5 chances to win! How AWESOME is that!! All winners are chosen randomly, so everyone has an equal chance to win! Woo Hoo!! Good Luck to everyone! The Design Team is looking forward to seeing your creative makes and will pop around to visit you ASAP!

Please pop by to see what Tenia and the DT have made!! Terrifying creations they are!!! ;-) 

I made a card and treat bag using a Tim Holtz Haunted House Stamp Set and a Lawn Fawn Goodie Bag Die 


For the background I belnded Spiced Marmalade, Dusty Concord and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Inks and then used an Echo Park Creepy Bats Stencil and Black Ink. I stamped the images using Simon's Intense Black Ink and then used a Copic Multiliner to completely color the witch and cat, making them into a silhouette ;-) 




I used the same Creepy Bats Stencil for the treat bag but sponged white pigment ink through and then embossed with white embossing powder. It would have been better to use glow in the dark, but I don't have any, YET! a little pot is currently en route ;-) 


and I added a Wicked Tim Holtz Typed Token ;-)

Stampendous 'Birdie Gifts'

I am here with a reminder to please join in with House Mouse and Friends Challenge


This time the fabulous and super talented Christine is the hostess and the theme is 


Anything Goes 
the option of 
AUTUMNFALL COLOR

of course you must use a House Mouse, Gruffie or Happy Hopper image to join in ;-)

I really need to make more Christmas cards so i went with the Anything Goes option and used a Birdie Gifts Cling Stamp 


I coloured with Copic Markers and Prismacolor Pencils, blended some Stormy Sky Distress Ink around the edges and then added some snow using a Falling Snow Stencil, White Embossing Paste and a sprinkling of glitter. I wrapped some twine around the edge and added a little star charm to finish. The paper is from an older Kaiser Craft Pack which is very similar to this Wonderland Paper Pack 

and I finished the inside using a Merry Mouse Clear Stamp Set 


and I made a matching envelope ;-)

Art Impressions: Dog Mouthful

Hi all, I hope you all have a great day and a fabulous weekend!! Do you have any plans?  Mine involve eating and crafting :-)

Recently on the Simon says stamp Wednesday Challenge we were showcasing Art Impressions stamps and I loved THIS CARD by Kim aka Paper Pawz  and I just had to get the Dog Mouthful Stamp and Die Set
As the festive season is fast approaching I thought I would make this into a Christmas Card



I coloured with Copic Markers and Polychromo Pencils and added a sprinking of glitter onto his hat trims. For the background I made a brick wall effect stencil using a Tim Holtz Mixed Media 3 Thinlits Die and a piece of Judikins Window Plastic so I can use it again ;-) 


The current theme on the Art Impressions Challenge is to add embellishments, so I added Washi Tape, Twine, a bone charm and a wood button


and I finished the inside using Lawn Fawn Louie's Alphabet Die Set and I made a stencil using a Simon's Paws Die Set 


and made a matching envelope 


Thanks for looking! I hope you all have a great day and a fab weekend!
