CAS Halloween Card

Cards, Halloween Card

Spooky salutations! Today I’m sharing my final Halloween card for 2015. Today’s card is a clean and simple creation that would make for a great last minute card if you need one.

As always, you can watch the how-to video over on my YouTube channel, or below…if you dare…

I accidentally made an extra card for the Alley Way Stamps this month, but rather than just scrapping the idea and moving on, I decided to share the card here. It was a fun and easy creation and I’m so happy with how the ghoulish colouring turned out.

Using Staples on a Halloween Card

Cards, Halloween Card, The Alley Way Stamps

Haunted hellos my crafty friends! Just a quick post for today. I’m back on the TAWS Blog to share another how-to video. You can watch the video below, or on my YouTube channel.

I loved embellishing this card with my Tiny Attacher by stapling on the images for some fun spooky flair.

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.

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!

Halloween Card with The Alley Way Stamps

Cards, Halloween Card, The Alley Way Stamps

Hi everyone! I’m back on the Alley Way Stamps blog and YouTube channel today to share another Halloween card.

As always, I let my camera roll while I created my card so that I could share the process with you. You can watch the video below, or on my YouTube channel.

I’ve challenged myself to create as many Halloween cards as I can with this single stamp set. The Ghoul-Friend stamp set is one of my all time favourites because of the wide variety of stamps that are included in the set. There are plenty of wriggly critters, haunted creatures, and of course delectable sweets.

I cut my window shape from Silhouette Studio and then added some thinly trimmed strips of paper to add a little bit more detail. For my spooky background, I combined three colours of Distress Ink, and then added some water droplets for extra effect. Once my background was dry, I stamped and clear embossed both the spider, and his web.

The love that the spider isn’t affixed down, so he can still move around on his string. My two year old nephew seemed to particularly like the crawling the spider as well.

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

Until next time, happy haunting!
