Vintage Halloween

Happy Weekend!
So glad it is Saturday and I have a couple of days of to decompress.  
Teaching school this year is pretty interesting. Still Zooming, still teaching some kids in person and some at home. Crazy times we live in.
Thank goodness for family and stamping.  ;)
I used the FaDoodle Fall stamp in waterproof ink on water color paper. I used Karin Brushmarkers to color my pumpkins and such. The black panel behind the image was cut using the Wonky Stitched Rectangle Die. I pulled out some vintage sheet music and my very dusty sewing machine. I adhered everything with Crafty Foam Tape. I also added a bit of glitter under the sentiment. 

I wanted a few hearts so I used a few from the Sweetheart Sprinkletz collection.  I colored them black with a Copic marker before adhering them.
I am so glad you stopped by! Be sure to pop on over to Whimsy Stamps to see all of their new products! 
Have a great weekend!

31 Night of Halloween!

Hello friends! It's Michele here with another fun Halloween card to share! I absolutely love, love, love this Slimline Hourglass Die! It is the perfect backdrop for all of your spooky Halloween goodness! The "Glass" was cut out with vellum.  I cut the "sand" using orange card stock and used the Halloween Expressions Stencil to fill it in.  I added spiders and webs from Whimsy's new die set.  I applied crackle paste over my spider and let it do its magic.  Once dry, I rubbed black ink over it.  
I added the EEK! Word and Shadow Die and a few spider sequins, from the Sparkletz-Creepy collection,  to finish off the card. 
Thank you so much for stopping by on Day 19! :)

I adore this new stamp set called, Christmas Critter Wishes. I colored the image with Copic markers and fussy cut it.  I stamped sentiments from the ATC Sleigh Ride set and the Merry Christmas Sentiment Assortment set, on top of the new Slimline SurReally Cool Christmas papers/ 
I added white gel pen highlights, silk ribbon, snowflake sequins, and a couple of jingle bells to finish the card. :)

Halloween Shadow Box

Hello friends!
I have a fun 3D shadow box using Whimsy Stamp's ATC Book Die Set.  I used it to create the box base and then topped it with a frame using the Zig Zag Stitched Rectangles Die.  I covered it with Crackle paste and Grit Paste both by Tim Holtz. Once it was dry I rubbed black ink over it. 
For the inside of the box I used the Howling Night Die Set. I added Crackle and Grit paste to the fence and mossy hill. I added a large spider web from the Spiders and Webs Die Set. The bats are from the Elvira Moonlighting Die Set.
