Boo-tiful Halloween Cards

I'm working on a little something for my kids and niece for Halloween.  Last year I created a bunch of Halloween card, Bevy of Monsters and they have been pretty Spooktacular with everyone.  So this year I made another quick and easy set. 
The paper is Authentique 6x6 paper pack from last year and the cards are standard A2, 5 1/2" x 4 1/4".  All the spooky accents are my Movers and Shapers mini dies.  I made all 4 cards in about 20 minutes.  However, the dry time on the Movers and Shapers doubles that time.
My little bat cut with cereal box, painted black and layered with Glossy Accents is rockin with BAT-itude! The stamps used with these cards are Scrappy Moms Stamps, called Goosebumps!  The Bat Fence punch is Martha Stewart and ribbon is Michaels.

When you open the card the spooky continues!

Love the skulls!  Again the stamp is Goosebumps and the Halloween Bakers Twine you can order through SMS

I paired the sentiment on the inside to the skull of the outside!
Also a Martha Stewart fence punch, this rickety old thing goes with my pumpkin.  I also added a copper wire as a trendil attached to the stem.  The leaves I picked up are Prima. 

These sentiments are from the new SMS, Pick of the Patch!

The scary cat is is painted in black and a thick layer of Rock Candy is applied to make it crackle!  The front of the cards sentiments are all stamped with SU's Craft White, then clear embossed.

One of my favorite stamps in the Goosebumps set.  Love this font!


You can cut these down in time to under 30 minutes if you avoid the painting, glossy accents and rock candy dry time!  Be sure to check back later and see what I'm making to go with these!

Journaling Tuck Spots and Pockets

It is official... I am addicted to Journaling.  This is an inspiration post... why?  I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas.  I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.  
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.

Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap ShotzMarch Scrapbook Kit.

A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.

Nicole Wright Designs Fallen Blossomis used on the tag, stamped and watercolored with worn lipstick oxide ink.

I used pages from my 115 year old art journal to create another mini.  Stamping and watercoloring throughout each page with Garden Flower and my stamp set Fallen Blossom.

Tuck spots and pockets for stuffing notes.  

The March Kit with the new Memoranda paper is perfect on it's own.  But I still cut it up and collaged with it.

I fussy cut a found relative since I am still trying to get my hands on …

Simply Spring

Just a simple card with stuff I had laying around or partially started.  What could be more easy than that.  Sometimes you just have to dig through your stuff.  Click the links below to see what I used.

You are the best... using Ranger's new Letter It stamps.

A little mixed media die cutting.

I went all inky then added a coat of clear rock candy distress glitter.  If only the shimmer came through.

Love these flowers.

A grungy little edge.

This is a simple little card with a couple of easy techniques.  We have so much snow so I guess I just need some cheery spring.

Watercoloring with Butterflies & Oxides

The Eileen Hull Inspiration Team has been sharing tutorials all month long.  I do have a video tutorial for this card but it won't be read for awhile.  Hey, it happens.  I at least have a couple of photo's until the whole video is posted on Creative Scrapbooker Magazines website.

Loving the new Oxide inks especially as we approach those soft easter pallets.

A little stamping.

I know it's not a box or cool journal.  One of my favourite dies is the Birds & Butterflies thinlit.  Yep, there are pretty little dies perfect for card making too.

I love the intricate butterfly to layer over.

A simple card and no it's not even a journal.

I will share the video when it's all done and posted.  I will even embed it in the post too.
Onto next month...
