Hi all! I have more Halloween stuff for ya today. I just love Halloween...so many possibilities.
First up is a card I've made for Jordan to send to Nana & Papa. It's a very simple design but I'm quite happy with the outcome. The inspiration comes from 2 challenges. Waltzing Mouse stamps provided the sketch and the theme/color inspiration is from the Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab World. Here is the picture inspiration:
And here is my take on the photo:
The colors are much richer in person than in this photo. If you click on the photo to enlarge I think you can get a better feel for the colors. I used black card stock for the base and my squares were done using olive green card stock that I blotted with paper towel soaked in bleach. I then distressed it using Tim Holtz distress inks in walnut, cracked paint green and then black chalk ink.
Stamps used are Waltzing Mouse stamps and 1 stampin up stamp- the little rip headstone on the tag. I used the Tim Holtz green distress ink on the stamped pieces. I used orange raffia just to give it a little splash of color.
Next up are a sample of some of the favors Jordan will be having at his halloween party. I let him pick out 5 different favors from Oriental Traders. Here is the 1st of 5 and of course I had to turn it into a craft project, lol. I've made 8 of these for our little ghouls.
These were a breeze to make! I found the template at MyGrafico from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff. It comes as an svg file and I was able to use my cricut- makes life so much easier! My test tube dp is from Cloud 9 and is perfect for this project. The stamps are from Waltzing Mouse. These test tubes are a hoot!! And yes, that is a finger in the green tube- made of marshmallow. The green liquid (corn syrup) is green apple flavored and just awful but Jordan thought it was awesome, lol!
