The Last of the Halloween Cards (Projects 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30)
Woo Hoo!!! I'm more than half way to my goal of 50 cards. I'm really going to have to get moving with posting if I want to meet my goal in time to do some crafty shopping on Black Friday.
The image is a stamp by Stampendous. I colored it with Distress Inks in Dusty Concord, Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade. I then used Frantage (by Stampendous) embossing powder and mica chips, and some Martha Stewart glitter along the edge. I’m not sure if I like how it came out. I have a love-hate relationship with the Frantage embossing powders and elements. I love the stuff I’ve seen it used on but I tend to hate how it turns out when I use it. I think I just need to keep practicing with it.
Pumpkin Head Girl
This image is by Stampendous, stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics. I added stickles to her hat. I inked the edges with Distress Ink in Dusty Concord. I think it needs an embellishment but I can’t find one in my stash that I like how it looks with this.
This image is by Inkadinkado, stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and Colored with Copics. I added stickles to the collar. I die cut the oval and the scallop oval mat with Spellbinder nesties dies.
Girl Dressed Like Pumpkin
The image is by Recollections and was RAKed to me after last year’s Stamptoberfest over at Two Peas. She’s stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics. I added stickles to her tights and the three corners. The candy corn circle and mat were cut with Spellbinder nestites dies. The candy corn is from the same stamp set as the girl. After coloring them, I added glossy accents for some shine and dimension. The background was made by repeatedly stamping on the diagonal a long sentiment stamp by Stampendous. It is about 5 inches long.
This is another fairly new stamp, by Outliners/ Hampton Art. I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics. I added liquid pearls to the hat, stickles to the spider’s thread, metallic pen to the buckle and Wink of Stella to the flower. I created the bow with my bow-it-all. I love that thing.
