Whimsy Stamp's New Release!

Hello friends! Happy Labor Day weekend to you!
I can not believe it is September already....time sure does fly!
Whimsy Stamp's has released some awesome Halloween stamps and dies this month.  I used several new products on this vintage, shabby, Halloween card. I used the stamp set, Exquisite Beauty for the butterfly wings.  It is a rubber stamp and it stamps so crisp and clear! For the body I used the Forever Cameos die.   The frame is from the Forever Cameos Frames die.   I grunged it up a bit with Grit paste and Crackle paste.  I used a Tim Holtz Distress Crayon in black and brown to get the cracks and such.  The background of the card is old book paper.  I used the Brick Pattern Stencil over it using Crackle Paste.  Once it was dry I swiped black and brown Distress Crayon over. it.  
I added lace, a bit of mummy wrap around the frame, a small posy, and vintage stick pins for the antennae.  This was such a fun card to make. :)
If you haven't seen the full release yet, be sure to head on over to Whimsy Stamps!
Have a great weekend!

Trick or Treat!

A quick post today using Whimsy Stamp's new Batty Die Set.  I cut the bats out of paper I had previously water colored.  I added vintage buttons to the bats' bodies.  I added cob webs from the Nested Webs Die set. These were cut out of black paper and I added Grit paste to each and gave it a swipe of gold using a Distress Crayon.  The background was water colored using purple and black paints.  Grit paste and crackle paste were swiped around the edges.  I took a brown Distress Crayon to define the cracks a bit.  

The sentiment is part of the Cat-O-Lanterns set.  A bit of mummy cloth was tied at the top for a final touch. :)
Thanks so much for stopping by! :)
