Whimsy Stamp's Spooky Release!

It is September 10th, which means two things, one it is my 50th birthday! and two, it is Whimsy Stamp's new release!  ( I think I am more excited about the release! LOL)  I love the new ATC Book die display.  I decided to make it a box for Halloween treats though instead.  I gave it a good splattering of black paint to distress it a bit.  For the front I stamped and embossed the new Trick or Treat Stamp in blood red. 
For the edges I spread some grit paste to give it an old worn out look.  The spider is from the previously released Spiders and Die set.  I gave it a coating of glossy accents for added dimension.  I adhered everything with Crafty Foam tape. 

You won't want to miss the rest of the release! Be sure to pop by Whimsy Stamps to see it all!
Have a great day!

Happy Labor Day Weekend to you!
I have a card to share with you that is a bit different than I usually make.  I am not sure why, but I was in the mood to play and get grungy.  I wanted a different take on Whimsy Stamp's FaDoodle Rainbows. I stamped each section and used my Karin Brushmarkers to water color.  I cut out each section. Once dry I gave it a splatter of black and white paint.  The background was water colored using Tim Holtz inks in Kitch Flamingo, Wild Honey, and Mustard. Once that was dry I gave it a splatter of black paint.  I used the Sun Rays Stencil and Crackle Texture paste over it. I pulled out my very dusty sewing machine to add a zig zag stitch.
Everything was mounted with Crafty Foam Tape.  I added a piece of doily behind the rainbow, glitter to the clouds, and a few stars.   I stamped the sentiment and added a teeny heart from the Sweetheart Sprinkletz collection. 
It was fun to do something a bit different every now and then...take a step out of your comfort zone so to speak!
I am heading downtown today to pick up Cortney for a swim party. Can't wait to give my girl a hug today! Have a great day friends!
