Ghostly Haunts

Boo! Yep, another Halloween card! Eek! I think it's become an addiction! What can I say, all these Fun Stampers Journey stamps and dies are inspiring me to play! 


Today's card was created with the new Ghostly Haunts stamp set. These ghosts are supposed to be stamped the other way around, the smallest part as the head, but I wanted to be different! 


Love all the different little eyes included in the set that you can use to give these ghosts unique expressions! 


For the background I used white embossing powder on Black Licorice card stock to create a creepy nighttime effect. I also rubbed the Whip Cream ink pad over the paper once the embossing was done. 


What do you think? Do you like these ghosts upside down? Oh, I just thought about putting a third ghost on the card...one that's right side up for a fun little trio!

Happy Halloween

Continuing right along with my parade of Halloween cars, I have another one that I also created with the Trick or Treat stamp set. This Jack-o-lantern, rumpled witch hat and black cat are also part of the stamp set I used to create yesterday's card.


I was able to practice more with the new Fun Stampers Journey coloring system. The more I practice the more comfortable I feel with it. Speaking of this system, I saw a great video about this morning that you may want to see, here.  


I love using basic die shapes, like the Journey Circles for layering.


The patterned paper I used is from the Going Places paper pack, the perfect Grape Fusion purple for Halloween!


I also like to mix stamp sets on my projects...the little bats are from the Which Witch set. I think they add a nice touch to my design.

Trick or Treat

I'm been having a bit too much fun with Fun Stampers Journey Halloween stamps lately! There's something about Halloween cards that I just can't get enough of! This one was created with the Trick or Treat stamp set. 


There are lot's of creepy ghouls in this set! Eek! 


I colored them with the new re-inker system. I'm still learning all the time and try to practice as much as I can.


This chevron background paper is from the Going Places Paper Pack. I love that the prints aren't too themed so that I can use them for all types of cards. 


A little ribbon and twine add texture and dimension. 


That little orange button looks like hard candy, doesn't it? Yummy! I can almost taste the orange citrus flavor!

If the Shoe Fits

Hope you had a lovely weekend. There aren't too many summer weekends left, are there? I'm really going to miss the long days of summer and the juicy fruits that come along with it, but then there will be falling leaves and pumpkins to carve. There's always something to look forward to! 

Today I have a Fun Stampers Journey card to share with you that I created with the oh so cool Which Witch stamps set. 


For the background stripes I placed a few drops of Tangerine Fusion re-inker on an acrylic block, mixed it with some of the Fusion Blending solution and then painted the stripes on my card base with a sponge. 


Once the stripes were dry I used a couple spider web stamps from the Creepy Crawly stamp set to create a spooky background for the witch's shoes.


Lastly I splattered a little Lavender Fusion re-inker onto the card base to add just a touch of color and a few sequins for sparkle.
