Monster Mash Halloween with Infinity Engravings LLC

 Hello and welcome!  Here is my second DT project with a Halloween theme.  The image is another from Sasayaki Glitter and the bat is chipboard from IE.  After downloading and resizing my image in Word, I printed it out on Copic friendly cardstock, die cut it, then colored in the image.  I made a copy and fussy cut it out and then placed it over the colored image with repositionable adhesive.  Placing the stencil over the top, I did some ink blending over the background using a back and forth motion rather than a circular motion.  I die cut my sentiment from black velvet cardstock and adhered them with liquid glue.  I covered my bat with Versamark and heat embossed him using black ultra-thick embossing powder and added two layers of black glitter embossing powder to add some dimension.  A scattering of sequins finished off our happy little troupe of trick-or-treaters.  My supply list is below.

Trick or Treat Collaboration with Tara from Crafting With Curl E. Ques

 Halloween is almost here and today, I have a sweet treat for you!  Tara from http://curlecues.blogspot.com/ and I decided to team up to create collaboration posts and videos.  Each of us made backgrounds and exchanged them to create cards.  I took one of the awesome backgrounds she made and created a shaker with one of my favorite Halloween stamp sets.  After stamping the adorable little dracula cat, I colored him with Copics and die cut him out.  Using two stitched rectangle dies, I cut a frame from some glitter paper, attached the acetate panel and added doubled up foam tape around the frame to create the pocket for the shaker bits to live in.  I added a few spiders to the background using heat embossing and added sequins, microbeads and mica flakes for the shaker bits.  I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment, then added some green inks to tie it into the background.  To finish off my card, I attached the cat, sentiment bubble and bat using foam squares.  I also added some sparkle to Dracula's cape with a Spectrum Noir sparkle pen.  Here's the video tutorial on my YouTube channel if you'd like to check it out and my supply list is below.

Supplies:
Crafters Companion Spectrum Noir cardstock
Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
Simon Says Stamp Trick or Treat stamp and die sets
Copics: BV000, 00, 02, 04, 08; C3, 5, 7; E04

Happy Halloween with Infinity Engravings LLC

Happy Halloween!  Infinity Engraving has teamed up with Sasayaki Glitter so the design team is pairing IE die cuts with SG digital images to create fun and dynamic projects.  I started my project with the girl and wheelbarrow full of skulls image, using Word to resize the image and printing it out on Copic friendly cardstock.  After die cut and colored the image, I created a mask and placed my stencil.  To create the stars on the background, I combined glitter paste and powdered watercolor, removing the mask while the paste was still wet.  After the paste was dry, I added two shades of purple around the edges, leaving the center of the panel fairly light.  I applied two layers of embossing powder to the ghost die cut and mounted him with foam squares.  Here's the video tutorial on my YouTube channel if you'd like to see how I created this card from start to finish and my supply list is below.

Supplies:
Sasayaki Glitter digital image
Avery Elle Stitches frame die
Copics: C1, 3, 5, 7; 100; R27, 37, 59
B69; E13, 51; R20; Y00

MIO Challenge: Ombre

 Hello and Happy Fall!  I created today's card for the My Inky Oasis Challenge for October and the theme was Ombre.  Typically we see Ombre as a transition from light to dark or dark to light in a single color and is also seen with two colors, one dark and one light.  Purple is my favorite color, so I used three shades transitioning from dark to light using the ink blending technique over an embossed background and incorporated a heat embossed vellum image with a die-cut sentiment to complete the project.  A scattering of sequins finished off my ombre masterpiece!  Here is the link to my video tutorial on my YouTube channel and my supply list is below.
