31 Nights of Halloween–Hocus Pocus

I hosted the Whimsy Stamps 31 Nights of Halloween Blog Celebration for Night #8!

This is a month long celebration with many prizes to be won. Be sure to visit this post on the Whimsy Stamps blog for a chance to win a prize!

There is absolutely no stamping on my card, which really made the whole process very fast and easy! When I saw the gorgeous new Halloween Paper pack, I knew that I could use some of the different sheets to create framed Halloween characters in a fun slimline card! 

I used the Slimline Scallop die to cut out some black card-stock.  I spritzed it with some watered down white acrylic paint and then adhered it to my card-base.  I then used the same die to cut out some silvery glitter paper so that I could use those for the scalloped frames for my images.  I then searched through the amazing new Hocus Pocus 6x6 paper pack to find some spooky images which I then cut out using the same die once again!

World Cardmaking Day

Today I am taking part in the Whimsy Stamps Instagram Hop in honor of World Cardmaking Day! 

Please visit my instagram account:  inkspots in order to participate!

I would still like to share my card here and tell you a little bit about how I created it!!!  This may be my favorite image from this month’s release and that is saying something as they are all pretty outstanding. 

The image is from the rubber stamp  Happiest of Haunts and I stamped it onto Copic X-Press it paper and colored her up with Copic Markers.  I did go in and add a little white dot detail in the sky as well as some Sakura Stardust pen to the spider webs fro a little added glitter.

I then fussy cut the image out, cutting the sentiment away from the rest of the image so that I could later tuck it right underneath her hands.

To create the background I first white heat embossed the Goth Skulls Background stamp onto some blackcard-stock and then used the smaller rectangle from the Cardbuilders Window Die set to create a framed opening.  I liked having the dashed line detail and the rounded corners.  I think it looks more polished that way.

To ground the image, I embossed some black card-stock with some light grey powder using the   Farmhouse Shiplap background border stamp.


So, please head on over to my instagram: inkspots in order to participate in the Instagram hop!

The hop starts October 5th at 12pm EST

BOO! Whimsy Stamps October Release

Happy Thursday! There is a new release over at Whimsy Stamps and it is AMAZING! I had so much fun creating Halloween and Christmas card projects! This is truly my favorite time of the year!

First up is this card that I created with the new Got Peepers Clear Stamp Set.  I have colored up 3 of the main images but there are even more that are included in the set!

I used the Wavy Nested Frames Die set to cut out a frame with some black cardstock.  I splattered some white acrylic paint over top to add some spookiness! The cardstock behind that was colored with a few grey Zig Markers and then distressed with water.

The sentiment was created by first white heat embossing the Goth Skulls Background stamp onto black cardstock and then die cutting that with the Bold ABC Die set.  I was really happy with how that turned out!

I also changed up the paper that I used to for the colored images.  I tried out the Copic X-Pressit cardstock and was really suprised at how different the coloring looks with my Copic Markers.  Definately was able to add more colors and blend away like crazy.  I think I will be using it more often!

Ordinary is Over-Rated

Happy Day! I can’t believe we are at the end of September already!

I have another Halloween themed card to share with you today that features an image that is so much fun to work with!  I did a little ink blending and distressing to create the background colors for the card.  The images and the sentiments are from the Morticia Clear Stamp Set and the bat was die cut from the Dracula goes Batty die set.


Thanks for stopping by!

Wee Witches

Happy Tuesday! I have a new Halloween scene to share with you that I created using AMy Young’s fabulous Sweet November digital images.  I used a few of the new images from this Spetember’s release as well as the fence image that was released last year. I will link them all in the bottom for you.  I love, creating scenes and using digital images is by far the easiest way!

Everything was colored using Copic Markers… many markers! This was a weekend project that I colored as I had wee pockets of time.  After coloring the sky, I used the Colorless Blender to create those lightened areas that you see.  I also used a Clear Wink of Stella Glitter pen and then a gold Uniball pen.


Thanks for stopping by!

You Oar Amazing!

Happy Friday! I have another Whimsy card to share today. This little dragon is rowing out on a lake and I think that the days will soon turn a wee bit to cold for that around here – time to get the card up onto the blog!

I used dies, stencils and stamps to create this scene.  I will have them all linked in my supply list!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Monday!  I hope that your week is off to a good start.  It will be the first full week of school for everyone here and ALL the activities are starting up as well!

I have another Halloween card to share with you today.  Lots of components but very easy to create!

I stamped the awesome Goth Skulls Background stamp with Versamark onto black cardstock.  I then heat embossed using white embossing powder.  I created such a great background that I then cut out using the Wonky Window Die 2.  I also used the die to cut out of some light blue cardstock to create a frame.  I sponged some purple ink over top to add some dimension and to match the rest of the colors in the card.

I colored up and cut out the skulls and one of the figures from the Goth Star Clear stamp set.  I liked how the bigger skulls from the stamp set looked over top the ones from the background stamp.  The sentiment is from the Going Batty set.


Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
