Chills and Thrills Card

Where did today go? All day I wanted to get this post up… but at least I’m getting to it now! This is a Halloween card I made for a friend of mine that recently moved.

It’s nice and creepy… just how I like my Halloween cards to be! Please click on the image to see the card bigger. The detail in the stamps is really cool!

The skull and spider swirl stamps are from Inkadinkado. The title is from Cosmo Cricket. I embossed the skull in a metallic purple, and rubbed to shades of purple on the edge of my grey paper (which is from Provo Craft). I also threw a little Black Soot Distress Ink (Ranger), around the edge of the card itself.

Seriously, how freakin’ rad is this stamp??? I am so in love with it! And I am IMG_7710really happy that I got the embossing powder to bubble a bit, instead of smoothing out. I think it makes it look a bit creepier.

Now I HATE spiders. Tremendously. Yeah, their good for eating mosquitoes and what out, but they just freak me out. We all have our things… spiders are mine. But these spiders…in this stamp… so cool! This is from a set called Halloween Trails. I’m telling you, if you like this stamp, then you NEED this set! The rest of the stamps are even cooler than this one!

Whew! Another card off of my to-do list. 27 more to go!!! Ok, maybe not 27… but there are a lot! Happy Freaky Friday everyone!!!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
