Halloween on a Postage Stamp

Hey Y'all!!!  The Postage Window A2 die from @whimsystamps is so fun.  Makes a dark and dreary Halloween card by using the ‘Haunted' 6 x 6 paper.  Bats & cats everywhere!  Only 3 more wake-ups!  All the details for this card are below (including links).

 

 

Started by using the ‘Postage Window A2‘ Die from Whimsy Stamps to cut one of the fun sheets from the ‘Haunted‘ 6 x 6 printed paper also from Whimsy.  Saved the outside frame for another day's project.   Used the ‘Postage Window A2' die to cut a plain white sheet of paper and inked up the frame in matching Distress Oxide Inks.  Walnut Stain, Fossilized Amber and Mustard Seed.

 

Cut the bats & cat from the ‘Build-a-Graveyard‘ die from Whimsy.  Cut a little piece of red card stock for the cat's eye.  The wooden ‘Halloween' sentiment is a retired piece I had.  Used Copic markers Y28 & Y26 to color the wood.

Haunted In The Graveyard

Hey Y'all!!!  Love this Vampire paper from @whimsystamps.  Has a mixture of everything: haunted houses, graveyards, bats and moons all bathed in red.  How dark and spooky!!!!  All the details for this card are below (including links).

 

 

Started with the the slimline base cut from white paper.  Created a small moon with a round piece of a white reposition-able label paper.  Inked the white paper with Distress Oxide Black Soot ink.  Used the ‘Slimline Wonky Window‘ Die Set from Whimsy Stamps to make the cool ‘window' view into the graveyard out of Basic Black.

 

 

 

The Red panels were also cut from the ‘Slimline Wonky Window‘ Die Set and the ‘Vampire‘ 6 x 6 printed paper from Whimsy, but I only used 3 of the 5 inserts the die makes.  The images of the haunted house and graveyard itself I glued in the original placement from the cut.  Slid the top center cut over to the far right edge and left some of the white paper showing through with the moon.  Left the lower right insert out.  Cut the wolf from the Whimsy ‘Monster Parade‘ Die Set.  Placed the wolf in the frame with a little additional red paper to give him a vibrant red eye.  Added just a little black soot color on top of the moon.  Cut the words Haunted & Graveyard from the ‘Haunted Words‘ Die Set from Whimsy.  Cut one out of gray and white out of black.

 

 

Just for a little extra, I added some Vampire fun to the inside of the card.  Cut another piece of the ‘Vampire‘ paper for the center of the inside.  Cut (2) pieces of gates from the ‘Build-A-Grave‘ Die Set from Whimsy and created a hill with the ‘Grass & Cloud Edger‘ Die Set.

There’s Blood In the Graveyard

Hey Y'all!!!  Sure wouldn't to be in this bloody graveyard on Halloween!  Trees ready to come to life and grab you.  These dies and paper from @whimsystamps are so fun and haunting for Halloween!  Have you ever visited a graveyard on Halloween night? All the details for this card are below (including links).

 


 

Started with Stampin' UP! Mercury Glass Designer Acetate and Silver Foil Sheets.  I cut the trees from the Mercury Glass and the gates and RIP from the Silver Foil Sheets.  Thought they looked great with the “Haunted” Paper from Whimsy Stamps.  Such haunted colors!  Cut a tombstone out of Stampin' UP! Basic Black Card Stock and inked the edges with Distress Oxide ‘Chipped Sapphire‘ and ‘Hickory Smoke‘.

 

I used the ‘Trees Assortment‘ Die Set & ‘Build-A-Graveyard‘ Die Set for the trees, gates and tombstone.

 

Finished it off with a little glittery red blood with Stickles ‘Christmas Red'.

I’ve Got My Eyes On You!

Hey Y'all!!!  These little googly eyes just crack me up!  They are from the ‘Eyes On You' stamp set from @fsjourney.  I need some big googly eyeglasses to wear for Halloween.  All the details for this card are below (including links).

 

 

I started by coloring the monsters with Copic Markers.  Mixed and matched what seemed like all the bright halloween colors.  And you know I LOVE bright colors.

 

The background is colored with alcohol inks on Yupo paper.  Valencia, Limeade & Amethyst.

 

Used Stampin' UP! card stock, Granny Apple Green and Gorgeous Grape.  They matched perfectly with the alcohol ink background.

 

Used the ‘Slimline‘ Diagonal die from Rubbernecker Stamps as a layer on top of the alcohol ink background.

 

 

The ‘Stitched Rectangle Frames' from Law Fawn made the perfect border stamps.  Cut two for a border around the background as well as the monsters.

Hope Your Halloween Is Really Baterrific

Hey Y'all!!!  The slimline dies @whimsystamps are such fun to use and the Hill House Slimline Die is no exception.  Fun haunted house, fence and a long sidewalk to get you really freaked out before you make it to the door!  Accented with the front fence, bats & skulls from the Build-A-Graveyard die set.  All the details for this card are below (including links).

 

 

I started by coloring a white background with Distress Oxide Inks.  Used Black Soot, Spiced Marmalade, Candied Apple, Lucky Clover & Seedless Preserves.  The sentiment is brushed and stamped with Distress Oxide Black Soot.

 

Used a combination of Stampin' UP! card stock, Basic Black, Whisper White & Mango Melody.  I cut a 2nd image our out of Mango Melody and used the outside piece for a border around the original Hill House cut out of Basic Black.  Matched the background of the sentiment by using Mango Melody as well.

 

The Build-A-Graveyard Die Set from Whimsy Stamps has so many fun dies.  Headstones, cats, bats, fences, skulls and more.  Cut a few of the images out for a little extra Halloween fun.

Got Candy?

Hey Y'all!!!  These little Kooky Monsters from @whimsystamps are just the cutest!  Wouldn't it be fun for some of these little monsters to show up at your door on Halloween yelling “Got Candy?”.  They just make halloween so colorful.  All the details for this card are below (including links).

Geometric Spooky

Hey Y'all!!!  Halloween is right around the corner!  Saturday night…  Full moon…  Gonna be SPOOKY!!!!  Did you know that the tradition originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off ghosts?  All the details for this card are below (including links).

 

 

I started with this easy geometric background design using inks from Stampin' UP! & Tim Holtz.  Seedless Preserves, Shabby Shutters & Spiced Marmalade Oxide Inks.  Gorgeous Grape ink from SU.  Karen Hadler has a great video on this technique.  Reminds me of what a spider web might look like if it had a little color in it.

 

Used Stampin' UP! card stock, Gorgeous Grape & Granny Apple Green.  They matched perfectly with the fun background.

 

I love this Large Spooky Die from Whimsy Stamps.  So easy to use and makes quite a statement.

Hey Y'all!!!  I do love @whimsystamps dragons designed by @dustinpikedraws and here's another one.  This little guy made me laugh out loud.  I'm always shooting a bird at someone.  I think I need one sitting on my finger like Dudley.  Hysterical!!  All the details for this card are below (including links).
