Halloween Flag

I have always loved Halloween.  Probably because my birthday is the day after, and my Mom was always very creative with out costumes (she could sew).  So, I love the new Halloween images we have in the store now. 

For this card, I used the new It's a Scream Halloween image on the front (inside I have the new Scary Skull and Deco Happy Halloween).  I used THIS fun flag as my inspiration - it was part of the Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoaststampers.  I wanted my card to look like the flag was on the porch of one house looking over at a haunted house. 

Since my inspiration was a fun chalk skull flag with a black wood background, I white embossed our Wood Grain background image.  The inspiration flag had some scrolling flowers so I used the DRS Flower Scroll image on the side and bottom of the piece and embossed them too.  To make my background, I used the Silhouette Haunted House on my Ink, Spray, and Smash background (I used Tangerine ink from SU! mixed with a bit of Red Barn distress ink).  The skull is a Jolee's Sticker.  To get a spookier look, I sponged on some Distress Ink in Vintage Photo and Black Soot. 

Hope you are starting to get a bit cooler weather.  It is still very hot here and hard to think about sweaters, pumpkins, and costumes.




Hi Everyone,

Our weather has finally taken a turn...Why does 65 degrees in the fall, feel so much cooler than 65 degrees in the spring?  It must be the inevitability of winter, but I don't want to get ahead of myself.  After all, this is a post about Halloween cards!

This first card is on the spooky side, featuring a scene made with the new Iron Fence and Gate stamp.
I sponged the background using my ink pads, and then stamped the images on top. I left the sky area kind of blank, and added some more sponging after I stamped the Raven.  I colored it in with Copic markers and then filled the sky using the Accent Bats stamp.   I die cut the background scene using a Sizzix die and finished off the card using the new It's a Scream Halloween Greeting.

Here's a friendly Halloween card for my second share today.  I embossed the background with a spider web embossing folder, embellishing the raised web with some glitter glue. I stamped, colored and fussy cut the new Ghost Boo, cutting out one extra ghost. 

Once my background was dry, I attached a die cut banner that had my extra ghost attached, and attached my greeting up top.

Be sure to stop by the DRS Designs store to see all of these new stamps and many more, all celebrating the fun of Halloween!

Have a great day!


Trick or Treat

Happy Monday! Trust you had a good weekend and found some time to get inky! I've been having fun playing with the new images and greetings just released by DRS Designs. For today's card I created a little scene using the new iron fence (771P), Trick or Treat greeting, Spooky Tree and  Ghost Family images. I stamped the tree and ghosts first, colored with Copics, sponged on the grass and sky areas and then stamped the greeting and fence with Versafine Black ink and heat embossed. I smudged a bit of ink behind the fence, so I added those pumpkins to cover it up. :-)

On the inside I stamped the rest of the Trick or Treat greeting and added some candy corn.

Be sure to check out the on line store to see these images and more from DRS Designs.

Thanks for stopping by today.


Halloween... it's a scream!


Have you checked out our new Halloween images yet?  There seems to be something for everyone - from cute to scary to multi-purpose!

I'm not one to normally focus on scary for Halloween - I usually go for funny, so our new Skull image is a bit outside my norm, but I'm really pleased how this came out!

I started my card by stamping our new Scary Skull image 6 times on white scrap and coloring and fussy cutting all of them.  My background started as a black piece of card stock that I stamped with our classic Spooky Eye Background using white ink and white embossing powder and attaching my fussy cut skulls on top (I was able to get double duty out of one by using part of it on the top left and what was left on the bottom right) since I had an extra skull already cut out I added some foam tape to the back and added a little 3D action for one of the full skulls.  For my greeting I used our new It's a Scream Halloween.  I stamped each line separately on yellow card stock, dabbed on a bit of orange on the edges after cutting and layered them on purple and attached all to a folded bright green card.

Thanks for stopping by!

Drink Up!

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! Are you ready for some fun Halloween images? It's the perfect time to get your Halloween on. It'll be here before you know it then it's a slippery slope into the holidays. Yikes! That's almost as scary as Halloween! 

My card is all on one layer... a little masking & coloring was about all it took. The wine bottle & an extra glass were stamped separately & fussy cut.  I sponged on the 2 Distress inks around the edges to give a little bit of an eerie look & drew the drips from the words. Now the only question is..are you drinking from the wine bottle or the magic potions??? Hmmmm??
Here's a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
