Skelekinz Pumpkin

Happy Halloween Eve to everyone out there and whether you celebrate Halloween or not perhaps this cutie with a pumpkin will be right down your favorite spooky alley!  I've used Skelekinz Pumpkin rubber stamp from Little Miss Muffet Stamps on this project and created a page in my trading card journal.  This one has all my favorite embellishments lately including the spiders (from a mini punch), the wood sentiment and a bat charm (that I clipped off the loop).  Scruff up the edges and add some doodles and it's complete!  Thanks for dropping by and I hope you enjoy this bit of inspiration.

Batty Boo

I had some fun shopping for new Halloween paper over the weekend and picked up the Witches Brew Jillibean Soup mini pad and couldn't wait to use it.  The image I used on this project is Batty Boo from Whimsy Stamps (and also available at Little Miss Muffet Stamps) which was colored with Prisimacolor Pencils.  The paper I used was a little too smooth so I was a bit limited on the coloring but even so it didn't turn out too bad.   These little critters are cute, whatever they are, and fun to color.  :D  Hope you like it too and have a wonderful rest of your weekend!

Skelekinz Devil

It's the weekend before Halloween and we're busy decorating the house and having themed parties with our friends.  The kids have really gotten into it this year and so it's made it all that much more fun to create these Halloween cards!  :D  This one uses Skelekinz Devil rubber stamps from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.



I reached into the back of the cabinet for some Halloween papers and spooky eyes to help embellish this card.  Then A few things from around the table such as the ribbon, staples and Hello sentiment... and some spiders from my favorite tiny punches.  Added some doodles and this little devil is ready so greet you in your mailbox!  Thanks for dropping by and have a wonderful spooky weekend!

Skelekinz Haunted House

I had some fun experimenting tonight and was actually able to color AND make a card!  I wasn't sure how I was going to get through it but it all comes back when ya need it.  :)  The image I used was Skelekinz Haunted House rubber stamp from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.


I started with the tree stencil in the background and really wanted to do something with that.  I used a sponge ink pad to apply the gray, heavily at the top then fading to nothing at the bottom.  I then stamped the Haunted House (which might have been easier to stamp first and mask it.  LOL)  Luckily the colors and position of the house worked out.  Then I applied some doodles around the edge which I'm picking up from Faye at the moment.  :)  After that, everything else was hit and miss embellishments.



Behind the layered cardstock is cheesecloth with some spiders that I punched out of black paper.  I used puff paint to give them orange eyes.  The stars are brads that I stuck randomly around the top and then I added Baker's twine at the bottom to ground it all.  Finally the pumpkin charm that has been waiting around for the year was finally selected and I added orange micro-beads in the holes for some color.  Tadah!

Swings 'n Slides Vanilla

Today starts a new challenge at Little Miss Muffet Stamps and it's an "Anything Goes" theme - so you can make a card for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Birthdays, or even Thinking of You cards are all on the menu!  There is a little twist, however, in that I'd like to see you use stamps from my favorite brands... basically everything at LMMS, of course!  Here's my project...



I used Swings 'n Slides Vanilla from Little Miss Muffet Stamps which I colored with Marvy Le Plume markers.  I'm lucky that this was an Anything Goes challenge, in a way, because I nabbed this one from the already-colored-bin and then made a card at last minute to share.  Teehee  My desk is a mess, which isn't a new story lately, so I grabbed things that were closest at hand.  But the best part is is I added the doodles in the background as a tribute to Faye.  Thanks Faye, you're the best!

Swings 'n Slides Bump!

Little Miss Muffet Stamps is sponsoring Sketch Saturday this week and I wanted to create a project to support their challenge.  Plus my sweet friend Carla is hosting and I so that's a double reason to join.  :D   For this project I've used Swings 'n Slides Bump and then also included a puppy from Puppy Additions; both stamps from Little Miss Muffet Stamps, of course.




On the challenge blog where they show the sketch to use, in corners were staples.  I'm sure this is to make the sketch presentable, and it is, but I was also so inspired by them that I added them to my project too.  :D  It's been a while since I've used staples - I really should put that closer to my craft table.  LOL

I hope you've enjoyed this inspiration and we all hope you'll come on over and play along!
