Stampendous 'Batty Cat' Card and Treat Bag

Hi all, I am here to share a halloween card using a super cute Stampendous  'Batty Cat' Stamp Set and a little treat bag using the big bad wolf from a Little Red Cling Stamp Set 


I used Memento Tuxedo ink and coloured the images with Copic Markers before fussy cutting them out and 'rounding' them with an embossing tool to make them look real ;-)


I used an Echo Park Creepy Bats Stencil and Black Soot Ink for the background, the papers are from an older Doodlebug Paper Pack, but the latest Pumpkin Patch 6x6 Paper Pack is very similar.


The pumpkin and inside sentiment are from a Stampendous Spooky Wishes Stamp Set 


Would you dare take the treats from the Big Bad Wolf!!  for this I used a Lawn Fawn Goodie Bag Die 


Thanks for looking! :-)

I decided to add a Christmas card to my box, its filling up quite nicely!! Not sure how many I have made but I am sure to need a lot more ;-) 

I started with some White Yupo Paper, Aquamarine and Denim Alcohol Inks, a Simon Holiday Background Stamp and Alcohol Lift Ink and made a fabulous background, I love this technique! 



I then blended some Iced Spruce and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide onto Watercolour paper and used a Tim Holtz Festive Scribbles Die Set to cut the tree and star, the star I sparkled with Yellow Glitter, sooo pretty IRL ;-) 


I added some Silver Sparkle Tape and a strip of starry tape across the 'snow' panel and wrapped some May Arts Red Burlap Twine and gems to finish 


and I finished the inside
