Haunted Mansion Pockets Pals by LDRS Creative

Hello!  I have a SPOOKY card for you guys today, featuring the Haunted Mansion Pocket Pals stamp set from the LDRS Creative new Fall/Halloween Collection.

I started by stamping the Haunted Mansion image on some Neenah Solar White card stock with Raven Hybrid ink [this ink is perfect for using with either watercolor or alcohol markers].  I colored the images in with alcohol markers.  My color palette was inspired by the packaging itself.  I definitely LOVE that LDRS Creative gives you ideas on how to color the stamps.  I wish more companies will do this with their packaging.

Next, I carefully ink-blended the background using Dark Wash Jeans Hybrid ink and some blending brush to create the night sky.  

To create a spooky effect, I stamped the little “ghosty” images and the bats on the window and background with Raven Hybrid ink.  I also die-cut the grass panel twice on some black card stock using the In the Grass Die Set.  I adhered these on the card with liquid glue.

Now that my scene is almost finished, I decided to add the moon that I die-cut using the By the Light of the Moon Die Set.  I also stamped the sentiment on some black card stock with LDRS Watermark ink.  I sprinkled some White Embossing Powder and used heating tool to heat-set the sentiment.  I fussy-cut the sentiment and adhered on the card.

Lastly, I used some white gel pen to add some dots and stars for added texture and interest.  Here’s another look at the finished card:

Too Cute to Spook with LDRS Creative

Hello LDRS fans!  I’m back today with two VERY SIMPLE (but so ADORABLE) cards, showcasing the Trick or Treat 6×8 Pirouette Stamp Set along with the newest “must-have” stamping template called Pirouette Pattern Templates with some of the greatest hybrid inks –> RavenAlloyGrape Ape and In Your Face Orange.

This first card reminds me of one of my all-time favorite animated movie for Halloween.  Can you guess what movie that is?  Of course that was my inspiration creating this card. 

I started by positioning the Pirouette Pattern Master Template inside my stamping tool and taped it down with washi tape.  I position the spider web from the Trick or Treat 6×8 Pirouette Stamp Set in the center and closed the lid. I opened the lid again to place my card stock inside the stamping tool and stamped the spider web in the middle using Alloy Hybrid Ink.  I went on and positioned the stars and dots wreath and used Grape Ape Hybrid Ink.    

I repeated the process by stamping the images randomly on my card stock.  Next, I used some Raven Hybrid Ink to stamp the skull in the middle of the spider web.   I adhered this card panel on an A2 size notecard. and finished the card design by stamping the black ribbon and the sentiment with Raven Hybrid ink.  I just LOVE the intensity of this black ink, don’t you?! 

For my next project below, I used the Pirouette Patterns Template again to stamp the images on a 4×4 card stock.  This template makes it super easy to perfectly center your images on the card.  The lines really helped me position the images to create a seamless pattern.  I am warning you, it gets really addicting! Haha!

I started with a 4×4 card stock and stamped the spiderweb first with Alloy Hybrid Ink.  Next, I stamped the stars and dots wreath image using Grape Ape Hybrid Ink.  I positioned the ghost and stamped it with Raven Hybrid ink.  I colored the ghost with some alcohol markers for added dimension.  Then, I moved on by stamping the rest of the images with Raven and In Your Face Orange Hybrid inks.

Next thing to do is to mat the card on some orange and black card stock, then adhering it on some purple card stock measuring 4 3/4 by 9 1/2 folded in half, which makes it a 4 3/4 x 4 3/4 notecard.  I finished my card design by stamping the words “Happy Hunting” with some Raven Hybrid Ink.  Here’s another look: 

I just LOVE using the Trick or Treat 6×8 Pirouette Stamp Set with the Pirouette Pattern Templates!  You can create endless design possibilities using both products!  For more project inspiration, please head on over to the LDRS Creative Blog or the LDRS Creative YouTube channel.    The supplies I used are listed and linked below.  Thanks for stopping by today and happy stamping!
