Halloween projects

Give Me All Your Candy Bucket

Yay! I get to share all my Stampendous projects with you! Today’s post will be all about Halloween. This first project uses a small, clear pail from Stampendous. At 4,” its the perfect size for a little treat.

Give Me CU

This dracula is pretty cute, although the little man didn’t think he wanted to look like this! :) I colored him with Copics and added a small touch of Tiger Lily glitter to his shirt.

Supplies: All Stampendous, unless noted. Stamp (Cling-Give Candy), Pail (Short 4”), Black Circle Stickers (Class a Peel Jumbo Circles Black), Glitter (Tiger Lily from Tricks and Treats Fringe Benefit Kit), Ribbon (Creative Impressions), Spellbinders (Standard Tags), Thread (DMC), Button (Stash),Copics, Ink-Memento Tuxedo Black

Boot-iful Halloween

Every girl has to love this one-look at those boots! :) To create the label shape for the sentiment, I die cut the new Labels Seventeen shape and left the paper inside the die template. I then took my airbrush system for my Copics and sprayed a bright orange. The sentiment was stamped in black ink afterwards.

Supplies: Stamp (Cling-Bootiful Boots Set), Ink (Memento Tuxedo Black), Copics & Airbrush System ABS-1, Spellbinders (Labels Seventeen)

Hang Out Halloween

And once last card, this one using the resist embossing technique. (Video tutorial HERE) And one thing to mention, a valuable tip, when you are embossing any image, but especially one with fine details, such as this, grab a detail embossing powder. Stampendous makes the best detail powers. So good, in fact, I use them all the time. Always have.

Supplies: Stamp (Cling Hang Out, Cling Spider Web Set), Embossing Powder (Clear Detail), Ink (Versamark Watermark) (Palette Noir) (Distress Ranger-Peeled Paint)

Stay tuned for Christmas projects, tons of inspiration for your holiday cards. Scary to be thinking about that already, isn’t it? :) thanks so much for stopping by!

Its my "baby" sister's birthday today!! Happy Birthday to my most wonderful, brave, strong, talented, and fabulous sister!!! I love you!!
