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.

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.

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!

Floating Shaker Card with TAWS

Cards

Welcome! Today I’m on the Alley Way Stamps blog sharing a how-to video using their adorable Halloween stamp set, Ghoul-Friend.

I created a floating shaker card. The basic idea, is that the shaker is suspended in between two layers so it looks like it’s floating. You can get a better look at the card by watching my YouTube Tutorial, below, or on my channel.

I’ve been on a total oval binge lately. I feel like 90% of the projects I create these days, start at my computer in Silhouette Studio where I’m setting up a stitched oval cut file. To me, ovals kind of feel like a window into a story.

For this card, I knew I wanted to try a floating shaker idea that I’ve been contemplating for a while. I’m so happy that it turned out well and that the sequins do really look like they’re floating when you shake the card! Also, I think the charcoal glitter paper is the perfect finishing touch for a glam Halloween card.
