I keep the background interesting by using the

Halloween Stroll IPC 106

We are at the halfway point of the current Inky Paws Challenge!
We have a super fun challenge going on!

 I love Halloween!
One of my favorite memories is of trick or treating with the kids when they were small.
Nothing was more fun than sipping on a Pumpkin Spice Latte
on a creepy night, following the kids as they go door to door.
That was the idea behind this card.

I started this card by creating a 1 ½ inch circle with masking paper.
That will become the moon.
Using the EVERGREENS STENCIL and Versamark ink, I stenciled my trees in black.
I heat set the trees with clear embossing powder so that I could ink right over my trees.

I wanted a kind of hazy and eerie look to my trees.
 I just started applying  ink first using lighter colors and then darker colors.
I put a good amount of Distress Ink on the background blending as I went
and smoking out the edges with Black Soot Distress Ink.
While that background was drying, I stamped and colored my images from the
I also created the bottom part of the card with gray cardstock and
During the process of assembling my card I did re- cut my card so that
 the trees were peeking out behind my stamped image.
I removed my mask and it looked great!

I stamped my sentiment on the bottom in white for a nice contrast.
I assembled all the pieces of my card and add on the pumpkins for a fun touch.
I hope this inspires you to create some Halloween Fun
Using your favorite Newton’s Nook Stamps.

I had so much fun crafting this shaker,
 I forgot to take “how to” pictures.
I can tell you that I created the inside background     
by just stamping my candy corn on to white cardstock
and heat setting with clear embossing powder.

I colored my candy corn in with sharpie
 to get a nice bold color.!
I die cut all my pieces and assembled my shaker.
For those of you that have never created a shaker card,
Just type “creating a shaker card” 
in the YouTube search bar.
This will bring up a ton of fun videos 
for you to check out.
For a finishing touch, I add the sentiment from the HALLOWEEN TRIO STAMP SET
Some extra candy corn, and 
a touch of ribbon finishes this project!

I hope this inspires you to get spooky
 and show us your Halloween crafty ideas.

Thanks for stopping by!

Halloween Fun IPC 105

We are at the halfway point of the current Inky Paws Challenge!
Here is a refresh of the challenge sketch.

For my interpretation of the sketch,
 I jumped right into Fall with a Halloween Card!

The featured Stamp Set for this card is
I kept “Winston the Pumpkin” in traditional orange.
Since it is a Halloween Card, I went bold with my
color choices for the other two trick or treaters!

To finish the card, I created base for my card with
 the outer scalloped edge from the FRAMES AND FLAGS DIE SET.
and the inner scalloped edge die from the FRAMEWORK DIE SET.
I added some interest with black polka dotted paper
and a black and white bow.
To add to the Halloween fun, I added on some bats to the top of the card.
I hope this inspires you to have some fun with the challenge sketch.
I cannot wait to see what everyone creates!

Thanks for stopping by.
