Monster Halloween

I am not ready to give up making Halloween projects just yet so I figured this week is my last chance to create more cards and a tag. I’m back today to share with you my design team projects for Not2ShabbyShop, showcasing MFT Stamps Monster Love stamp set and dies.

Below is the photo and I have shared a process video for one of the cards. I have also listed and linked the supplies below. Have an amazing day!

Halloween Cards & Frankie Treat Box

I am back today to share with you some Halloween projects that I made using a bunch of dies and card-making supplies from KatScrappiness.Com.

October has always been my favorite time of the year to start my crafting for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. With the days getting shorter, I want to keep myself busy and create hand-made projects to give as gifts.

The first vellum LED tea light card with the skeleton was actually made a few days ago, as I wanted to display it on top of my mantle with the rest of my Halloween D.I.Y.’s.

The second card is my favorite. When I first saw this Cheery Lynn Designs Witch’s skirt die at KatScrappiness, I immediately thought of this design for a card. I thought it is pretty hilarious!

For the sake of time, I am going to keep this blog post short and show you the process video for the Witch’s Skirt/Cauldron Card and the cute Frankie Pillow Treat Box.

I hope you like the projects. Have an amazing day!

Supplies Used:

Sienna Dragonling by JLO Stamps

The spring term for the design team for www.jessicalynnoriginal.com has officially ended, but that doesn’t stop me from creating and designing for JLO Stamps.

 

I love coloring! It is so relaxing to just sit on my comfy chair in my craft room, listen to my favorite music and color stamp images and bring them to life!

 

In honor of one my favorite TV shows, Game of Thrones, I decided to color this whimsical Jasmine Becket-Griffith/Jessica Lynn Original stamp called “Sienna Dragonling”.

 

I first colored the image using my Copic markers, Sakura gel pens, my wink of Stella brush markers, and glossy accents, to give Sienna a whimsical look! Since this image didn’t come with a die, I took my time to fuzzy-cut the image, and then proceeded to highlight the cut edge with my black memento marker to give it a finished look.

 

Here is the card:

Rock Lobster Stamp Set by JessicaLynnOriginal

I am thrilled to finally be able to post photos of this new stamp set by Jessica Lynn Original called Rock Lobster. I love Brentwood, but don’t you just love that little smiley fish? It’s so adorable! Jessica is such a talented artist and a wonderful person; I am so proud to be a member of her design team.

Below you will find a photo of the stamp set. I think this will be a great addition to your collection. Just like the rest of Jessica’s stamps, this is made of high quality photo polymer material. You don’t have to be a skilled stamper to use this set.

Since today is Halloween, I wanted to create a Halloween card. I have always believed that you can use any stamp set for any occasion, with just a little imagination. I always liked stretching my stamps and dies. Since Brentwood is already dressed up as a lobster for Halloween, I figured he needed some confetti to go along and celebrate my favorite holiday! I also used my We Are Memory Keepers Fuse tool for the first time to create a flat shaker. Note to self: next time, do not touch the fuse tool with your fingers to check it it’s hot enough! Ouch!

The next card is one of my all time favorites! I think everything just worked and blended together beautifully. I love the colors on this card. I used my Avery Elle Wonky Stitched rectangle die to create the frame for my shaker card. I used a combination of blue, iridescent and white sequins and seed beads for my shaker elements. A video tutorial will be posted soon on my YouTube channel so please stay tuned for that.

You should put Hershey’s kisses or Chocolate covered raisins to make it look like “witch poop”. The sentiment reads:

THEY DIP AND THEY SWOOP

THEY LEAVE YOU WITCH POOP!
