Creepy Halloween Doll!

Hello friends!
Whimsy Stamps has released some of the coolest Halloween sets ever this month!
How about this Creepy Dead Dolly set? 
I stamped her and the eyeball and then masked them both.  I added various Tim Holtz inks to the backgound and "blotched" some silver Shimmerz spray over the top.  I colored the images with Copic markers. I added a bit of pen detail to the eyeballs to make them blood shot.  ;)
Glossy accents was added to the eyeballs.  I added a few sparkly bats from the, Build-a-Graveyard set, to the background and stamped the sentiment on black card stock.  It was embossed in white.  Since I had a bit of silver in the background I added strip of silver glitter paper above the sentiment.  
I so appreciate your visits here!
Thank you!

Good morning friends! 
I am excited to share a project made for STAMPtember!  It is an exclusive Whimsy Stamps set sold at Simon Says Stamp!

This adorable set, Happy Pugmas really spoke to me! I had a pug, Bruno, years ago, and one thing I can say about Pugs...they have a ton of personality!
So do these little guys!
I colored each image with Copic markers and fussy cut them.  I inked up a piece of cardstock with Tim Holtz inks and then used Whimsy's Slimline Window die.  I cut it again and used the white frame for a bit of "white" space to a very colorful background. 

I added glossy accents to the white frame and Glamour Dust glitter.  I stamped the sentiments with Versamark and heat embossed it in white
I had to add a scattering of Sprinkletz hearts.....I mean seriously... Hugs from the Pugs? 

Thank you for stopping by today!

Whimsy Stamp's Mini Release!

Hello and Happy Sunday to you!
Today is Whimsy Stamp's Mini Release!
I am featuring their new Elvira Moonlighting Dies and their super cool paper pack,  Vampire.
I die cut all of the pieces and added a bit of Copic Coloring, and sparkle to her dress.  I used teeny black gems for her eyes.  
The Vampire paper was a perfect backdrop for Elvira! I added a bit of yellow sponging behind the moon and lantern.  I popped up the pieces using Foam Tape.  I stamped the sentiment in Versamark and embossed it in white. I layered it over a green piece of paper from the new Haunted Paper Pack. I added orange twine for a finishing touch.  
Thank you for stopping by! Be sure to pop by the Whimsy Store to see the entire release! You are going to love all of the new stamps, papers, and dies! :)

Halloween Shaker Card!

Hello everyone!
Happy hump day!
I have a fun shaker card to share with you today using Whimsy Stamp's new Halloween Postage Clear Stamps.  I stamped each image with Black Memento ink and colored them using Copic markers.  I fussy cut each out.  I inked up a piece of cardstock using Tim Holtz inks.   I used the new Postage Window Die.  I created the shaker card and used the Sparkletz Boo sequins and such to fill the windows.  
Instead of placing the images inside the shaker, I popped them up using Shaker Maker Foam tape on the outside of the shaker.  I tied orange and purple twine to finish the card off. 
I hope you are having a good week!
Thank you for stopping by today!

Halloween Expressions

Good morning and happy Saturday to you!
I have another card sharing Whimsy Stamp's newest release, Halloween Expressions Stencil.  I first inked up a square panel of card stock measuring 3.5 x 3.5 with Tim Holtz inks.  I splattered it with a bit of water to add a bit of texture.  Once it was dry, I stamped the Jack O'Lanterns in black Memento ink. I wanted to fill in some of the empty spaces so I used the new Halloween Postage set.  It has the cutest little Halloween images!
I took a white gel pen and colored inside the word, Boo.  I added orange rhinestones for the eyes.  The image was layered over a piece of purple paper from the 6x6 Cosmic Paper Pack. 

Have a wonderful weekend friends!

Don't Look Under Your Bed!!

Hello friends! 
Today is a great day because, one, it is my 49th birthday and two, it is Whimsy Stamp's September release! I think I am more excited about Whimsy's release.  ;) 
I used the new Creepy Clown set.  I stamped and masked the image and stamped the Burst Background stamp directly over image.  I peeled the mask away and colored it with Copic Markers.  I added white gel pen highlights and glossy accents to his eyes and nose.  
The sentiment was stamped with Versamark Ink and embossed in white. I added a fuzzy twine to finish it off.  
Thank you for stopping by!

Whimsy's September Release!

Hello friends!
So hard to believe that it is September 1st already!  I am excited to share that Whimsy Stamps has their brand new release of Halloween goodies today! 
I used the adorable, Build a Graveyard set using gray and black paper. I stamped the cracks in the tombstones and the epitaphs from the new Grave Epitaphs stamp set. I love making treat bags for my colleagues at school, so I wrapped a piece of the Sugar Skull paper around the glassine bag. 
I adhered everything to the bags and glued a few gems and lil' ghosties from the Sparkletz Boo collection.  Fill up those bags with candy and you have a "hauntingly" good treat! ;)

Have a great day!

Instagram Hop!

Hello friends! 
Today Whimsy Stamps is hosting a fun Instagram hop! (There are prizes too!) Be sure to head on over to my Instagram page to check out all of the fabulous projects! So many fun ideas!
I used the new Spooktacular Stamp set. I colored each of the cutie pie ghosts (I love cute Halloween, not scary Halloween!) with Copic markers. Could the ghost taking a selfie be any cuter? ;)  I also used the Slimline Film Strip Die for the background.  The stars were the negative space using the Slimline Stars Background die. I added the teeny bats from the Sparkletz Boo collection.

Dia de Muertos

I hope you are having a fantastic weekend!
I have two cards to share with you today using Whimsy Stamp's new August release products! I adore this new set, Skull Cuties. I colored the images with Copic markers and used the coordinating dies.  For both cards I used the Sugar Skulls 6 x 6 paper pad.  For this first card I wanted my girl to stand out a bit, so I used the Connected Oval Frame Die and silver glittery paper. I added a black silk bow and found these fun tassels in my stash.  
For my second card I used quite a few of the pieces in the Skull Cuties set and used it with the Wonky Window die. I popped up the elements using Crafty Foam Tape.  I tied a white silk ribbon vertically to finish off the card

Thank you for stopping by today! Have a wonderful Sunday!
