Is It Halloween Yet?

Welcome everyone! I have some exciting news to share! I’m so thrilled to be joining the Picket Fence Studios Design Team! I’m a huge fan of their Life Changing Blender Brushes and gosh, their stamps, dies and stencils are amazing!


I’m kicking off today creating a spooky Halloween scene. Halloween is my favorite holiday and I totally fell in love with the Wicked Together Stamp set.

I started by adhering the center of the 3 1/2″ Blending Stencil to my Bristol Smooth card stock with Pixie Spray from Thermoweb. Then I ink blended, Peacock Feathers, Pine Needles and Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide inks with the Life Changing Blender Brushes.

I removed the center stencil and temporarily adhered the other part of the stencil, where it covers the background, so I can ink the middle. I blended Scattered Straw and Mustard Seed Distress Oxide ink in that center area to create my moon.

To finish off my scene, I masked off the entire background with the Layers of Grass Stencil and ink blended the grass using Picket Fence Studios Black Hybrid Ink Pad. This was actually difficult to blend on top of the Distress Oxide, so I applied my ink pad directly over the area I wanted to stencil and dragged the ink pad across. This gave me a gorgeous deep black.

I love all the silhouette images on the Wicked Together stamp set but this cat on the broomstick stole my heart. I stamped the cat, the sentiment and a few bats using Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink using my Misti Stamping Tool.

I hope you enjoyed my first project with Picket Fence Studios and can’t wait to create more!

Plushoween – Mama Elephant

Working on getting my mojo back by creating a simple but adorable card using products from Mama Elephant.
This stamp set is seriously one of the cutest Halloween sets out there! I’ve been in a funk the last few days and thought I’d create a clean and simple card. I used a piece of Neenah white cardstock to stamp out this image fro the Plushoween stamp set with copic friendly ink. Then colored with copic markers.
The sentiment is stamped in Plum Punch ink from Gina K Designs to give this a little more of a Halloween feel. Next, using a piece of Plum Punch cardstock and Plum Punch ink I stenciled on the Abstract Triangles stencil. Then cut a circle from the middle with my circle stackables die.
I layered this on top of my colored image and added the panel to a white A2 size notecard. Clean, simple and oh so sweet!

It’s a Nail Biter! – Whimsy Stamps

Welcome! I am proudly participating in the 31 Nights of Halloween with Whimsy Stamps. Today’s card is featuring the stamp set It’s A Nail Biter!

There is also a process video for this card that you can view HERE on my youtube channel or down below! 

I started out by stamping my image onto Neenah White cardstock using Simon Says Stamp Black Ink. Then I cut out the image with my Scan n Cut Machine. Next, I cut out a few die cuts from Zombie Trio Dies and Dracula’s Coffin Die Set.
I created a background using Seedless Preserve and Faded Denim distress inks and added that to a black cardbase. Next, I cut a circle from white cardstock  and stamped a sentiment right above the window. Then added my die cut graveyard pieces right behind the circle window. I  attached foam adhesive all the way around the white card panel and attached that to my distressed panel. I love how this creates a cool graveyard scene for my zombie.
