Coloured Pencils on Kraft with TAWS

Cards, Halloween Card, The Alley Way Stamps

Spooky salutations my creative friends! I hope you’re enjoying a lovely weekend. Today I’m on the Alley Way Stamps blog sharing another haunted how-to video.

This week I’m sharing my sweet tooth while I use my absolute favourite Halloween stamp set, Ghoul-Friend. You can watch the tutorial video below, or on my YouTube channel.

I stamped the images onto kraft cardstock, and then used my Prismacolor pencils to add some vibrant pops of colour to the sweets. Since it’s Halloween, I certainly couldn’t leave the creepy crawlers out of the fun, so I stamped the spiders and bats as well.

Any occasion, Cards

Howdy! It’s already time for another Colour Me! challenge post. This week the challenge is to create a project using the colour pumpkin.

I made a simple card using stamps from Lawn Fawn and Distress ink. I let my camera roll as I created my project. You can watch the tutorial below, or on my YouTube channel.

I love how the cactus stamps create the perfect silhouette against the orange background.

That’s it for today. Thanks so much for dropping by.

The Alley Way Stamps | Monster Crossing

Cards, Halloween Card

Hello beautiful crafty friends. I hope your weekend if off to a fabulous start. Today I’m back over on the Alley Way Stamps blog to share another cardmaking video.

I’m still on my Halloween card binge, but this week I pulled another TAWS set to create a little costumed penguin scene. The Penguins on Parade set was released earlier in the summer and it is one of those all-around sets that you can use any time of the year. It seemed too perfect not to use at least once for Halloween. I still wanted to pull in a little overt Halloween ambience, so I also used the Ghoul-Friend set. You can watch my video below, or on my YouTube channel.

I just knew that I had to dress these penguins up at least once for Halloween. I used my mini watercolour pallet and started by painting each penguin the base “penguin colours” and then went back to colour in my accessories. The whole process was made very easy because when I stamped the images, I also heat embossed them with clear powder at the same time. I love to heat emboss before using watercolour because it helps the paint stay contained so it doesn’t run.

That’s it for today. Happy haunting!
