Spooky

 
a little shaker card
used Tim Holtz branch tree embossing folder
lots of Tim Holtz distressed inks
CC Designs Bat die
do not ask me how I got the photo to move I have
no idea but it is super
"SPOOKY!"
"More Spooky Sayings"
 
When black cats prowl and pumpkins gleam,
May luck be yours on Halloween.

Welcome to BOO-ville

third in my Haunted house series
Got this file over at the Silhouette store

Design # 21539
ran the house through the
Tim Holtz embossing folder
shattered
Got this little bat stamp at Michaels
last year at the end of the season
it's by Craft Smart couldn't find a number on it
I stamped with versa mark ink then used
clear embossing to create the background
I stamped the bat and fussy cut it out some
glossy accents on the eyes and some
wink of stella on the body.
For the house it self I put some
silver glitter paper behind the windows
the clouds are a die from
the moon is a circle from
I inked this with Tim Holtz Distress inks
Scatted Straw and Orange marmalade
Sentiment from
"SPOOKY SAYING"
 
You wouldn't believe
On All Hallow Eve
What lots of fun we can make,
With apples to bob,
And nuts on the hob,
And a ring-and-thimble cake.

Frankly Frightful!

Hi Everyone 
My day to post over at
Cardz TV Gallery
great new blog with a new project
Monday through Saturday
 
I couldn't wait to use Mary's newest stamp set
some papers and bling from Doodlebug Designs
and little "Frankie"
colored with a few copic marker
he is just too cute to spook!


wanted to talk about something that to some of us is honestly
"Frankly Frightful!"
cutting your stamps.
Now I can assure you they don't feel any pain
the only twinges of anxiety will be your own.
 are high quality clear photopolymer stamps
 no worries on cutting them at all
for my card I need the sentiment to be in a straight line so I cut it 

they go back together so easily


You can also mask them off but when I try that 
I always end up having ink smears all over  

don't be afraid 
come on over to the dark side 
and give it a try.
 
Next week Think about it Thursday will be back

Have a Happy Crafty Day.

Karen
