A Week of Hallowe'en - Thursday & Faery Ink Inspiration Post - Destiny Graveyard Vamp

Good morning and Happy Hallowe'en! Welcome to my DT inspiration post for Faery Ink! I know Amanda just loves Hallowe'en, probably more than me, but I just had to make a Hallowe'en decoration using the gorgeousDestiny Graveyard Vamp. Isn't she just a sexy vamp?!

I used my fabulous Spiderweb Punch Around the Page set to make the frame and had to add oozes of blood dripping down different sections!

This project is also for Morgan's ArtWorld Challenge #11 Anything Goes A Perfect Time To Craft Challenge Anything Goes Aud Sentiments Challenge #239 Anything Goes + A Sentiment CCEE Stampers Challenge 1944 Halloween Southern Girls Challenge Happy Halloween The Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge Anything Goes with optional Cute or Creepy (Think this is definitely more creepy than cute!)

A Week of Hallowe'en - Wednesday & The Paper Shelter Challenge #404 Make It Square

Good morning and welcome to another of my Hallowe'en posts! Today I am combining it with my DT post for the new challenge from The Paper Shelter, which is to make a square project. Easy right?! Until I forgot the square and used the giant spiderweb to make a card base! Luckily I remembered in time and stuck it to the square card base!

I used the adorable Cute Witch and added some die cut bats and a spider to add to the spiderweb.

A Week of Hallowe'en - Tuesday

Good morning and welcome to another of my Hallowe'en post for this week. Today I'm sharing a card using a few of my new sets from Clearly Besotted - Halloween Plushies, Halloween Gift (which was a freebie set with the new release bundle) and Picture It Halloween.

I will add that my copics went really horrible on the grass on this card and try as I might they just would not blend. I have tried everything to fix this set of colours and always forget they are awful to use until I get halfway through the colouring. To be honest, I think I need to chuck them away and buy new ones as I have cleaned and cleaned them, changed the nibs and they are still sticky. There must be something wrong inside I think!

A Week of Hallowe'en - Monday

Good Morning and welcome to today's Hallowe'en post! I absolutely love Hallowe'en and making Hallowe'en cards and other crafty items - just wish my friends loved it as much as me! They just don't seem to get why I love it so much 😁👻💀👿

Anyway today's card uses the cute Going Batty stamp set from Whimsy Stamps. I went for a CAS tall card this time, not my usual style I know, but I wanted to have a play with my Distress Oxides and get a sunset look to the sky. Think it came out really nicely, but I need a darker purple at the bottom and didn't want to mix my Stampin' Up inks with them in case it went all wrong! Different types of inks and all that!

I tried to give the card the feel that all the bats were racing down to the pumpkins and the baby bat was the winner! They are just adorable bats, though aren't they?!

A Week of Hallowe'en - Sunday

I realised today that I have made loads of Hallowe'en cards recently and not yet shared them, so I thought I would do a week (or thereabouts) of Hallowe'en. I don't quite have enough to do a 12 Days of Hallowe'en like other companies are doing at the minute, but 6 Days of Hallowe'en doesn't quite have the same ring to it, does it?

Anyway onto today's card....This uses an adorable set from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps that I just had to have from last year's release and then never got round to using! I had to use them this year though! I made a simple box card and added lots of die cuts for my vampires! I also had a go at cutting out a coffin and after a few adjustments, I think it came out ok.

Something Else on Saturday #32 Featuring Halloween Kitties from Pretty Grafik

Good morning and huge apologies that this post is late. I thought I had scheduled it to go live on time, but it was still sat in draft mode when I checked this evening, but here it is anyway!

I am using these cute Hallowe'en Kitties from Pretty Grafik, an Etsy store I found while searching for Hallowe'en images. They have loads of different cute digi stamp sets, I bought a few, but this is my first card using them.

This card is for A Gem of A Challenge Week 21 Anything Goes Crafty Catz Challenge #480 Anything Goes Colour Crazy Craft Challenge Week 42 Anything Goes Polkadoodles Challenge Week 43 Anything Goes Simon Says Wednesday Challenge Autumn/Fall Colours Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge #504 Tic Tac Toe - I used the left column of orange, enamel dots (I don't have any in black so use Crystal Drops to make some!) and Patterned Paper. I also used the sketch of the month too for my layout.

Faery Ink Inspiration Post - Gabbie 50s Girl

Good morning everyone and welcome to my DT inspiration post for Faery Ink. This week I decided to do something a bit different from all the Hallowe'en cards I have been making recently and chose to use the adorable Gabbie 50s Girl. I so should have been born in the 1950s as I just love all these gorgeous skirts and dresses and have now built up a bit of a collection of my own!

As a huge fan of Grease as well, I just had to make her into a Pink Lady and the sentiment/quote is taken from the Pink Ladies Pledge as well.

The Paper Shelter Challenge #402 Up, Up and Away!

Good morning and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge from The Paper Shelter. This week our challenge is all about thing that fly - fairies, butterflies, aeroplanes, birds, bats and so on - take your pick!

I chose to use the gorgeous There's A Fairy In My Tea digital stamp and went for an Autumn colour combo using up some old patterned papers that I've had for years! I used chalks to colour the background so give a softer, more vintage look and then added a few drops of Crystal Drops as I just love using these!

Good morning and welcome to my 30th Something Else on Saturday post! This week I am sharing the adorably cute Whoo To You owl stamps from Clearly Besotted. I used lots of my Hallowe'en dies to create this scene to make it look like the owls were off trick or treating (or tweeting as they say!)

Scrapper's Delights DT Special Deals for October

Good evening and welcome to my DT post for this month'sDT Specials deals from Scrapper's Delights. These deals are an amazing way to see a range of different images from the Scrapper's Delights store at amazing prices too.

I chose to use the adorable Helpful Elfand went for a Christmas card for a change from all the Hallowe'en cards I am making at the minute. I kept this card fairly flat so I have a few ready for posting out during the Christmas season. I always colour elves in red and green, so hunted for some patterned papers and I think I have finally used up this pack of old papers from years ago!

Something Else on Saturday #29 Featuring Garden Mice from Newton's Nook

Good morning and welcome to this week's Something Else on Saturday post. I saw a card a while ago using this adorable stamp set, so added it to my birthday wish list and my lovely boyfriend bought it for me (even though he hates buying me craft stuff for some reason!).

I wanted to create a cute garden scene using all of the different mice images, but stamped the mouse and butterfly too high off the toadstool, so had to cut them all out and I think they still look cute without a Copic coloured background.

Scrapper's Delight VIP Chibi New Release

Good evening and welcome to my DT post for the new releases from Scrapper's Delights. This month the new releases are all  gorgeous and I am sharing one of the new Zodiac images again - this time Scorpio. She reminded me a lot of a sci-fi movie/tv show character, so I kind of went for a starry theme!

I attempted to do a striped, blended sort of background to the image as she was sitting on some space rocks and then added a star with the Scorpio symbol over the frame. I then added the qualities labels round the edge separately as I did the banner. Everything is covered with a fine layer of Crystal Clear Sparkle Pen from Spectrum Noir as well, which gives a little shimmer to everything, but I'm not sure that picked up in the photos.
