Halloween Greetings

Good morning!  I have another Halloween card featuring the adorable Witch Way Is The Candy? stamps and dies.

 

I colored all the images with copics then diecut them using the coordinating die-namics.  I used the Mini Cloud Stencil and distress ink to create the clouds on the white cardstock.  The paper is from Pink & Main's Not Too Spooky 6 x 6 paper pad - love the colors in this pad!  I used Wink of Stella clear glitter pen on the moon and the cat's bowtie.  I used a black glaze pen on the cat's and frog's eyes and then adhered everything with foam tape for some dimension.

Copics Used:
Pumpkins - YR18, YR14, YR12, E25, E23, E21
Moon - Y18, Y15, Y13, Y11
Cat - C5, C3, C1, E02, E00, E000
Frog - YG17, YG03, YG01, YG00

 
Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you have a fabulous week!

Hugs, Anita

Happy Haunting

Good morning!  I hope you're having a fabulous weekend.  I've got a Halloween card today that features a cute set from The Greeting Farm. 


This sweet little witch is from the Trick or Treat clear stamp set.  There are lots of cute Halloween characters included in the set so be sure to stop by and check it out!  I colored the witch and her pumpkin basket with copics then diecut them using the coordinating dies.  I cut a grassy hill from green cardstock, sponged on some Wilted Violet distress ink and then attached a diecut fence.  I used Fossilized Amber distress ink to sponge on the moon and stamped the sentiment.  I stamped a few bats in the sky and adhered the witch and pumpkin with foam tape.  The stamps in this set are small and don't take long to color so they're perfect for making quick Halloween cards. 

Copics used:

Skin - E13, E11, E00, E000, R20
Hair - V17, V15, V12
Dress - YG17, YG25, YG03, YG01

Merry Christmas

Good morning!  Today I'm sharing a fun shaker Christmas card using some products from My Favorite Things.



This cute little yeti is from the BB Beast Friends stamp set.  I colored the yeti and his string of lights with copics and then diecut him using the coordinating die-namics.  I used a black glaze pen on his eyes and added Glossy Accents to the Christmas lights.  I added Festive Berries Distress Ink to a watercolor panel and then flicked some water to create the lighter spots.  I diecut the scalloped frame using the Stitched Rectangle Scallop Frames die-namics.  I used the Merry Christmas Circle Frame to cut the Merry Christmas circle, and then added some acetate and sequins to create a fun shaker card.  

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you have a great day.

Hugs, Anita

Hoppy Halloween

Good morning!  Today I'm sharing another fun Halloween card.


I was on Instagram the other day and ran across the cutest little Halloween digis.  Since I love all things Halloween I had to check it out.  These adorable little bunnies are from the IsabelCristinaStamps etsy shop.  Be sure to check out her shop because she has other sweet digis over there.  These bunnies are from her Hoppy Halloween bundle.  I stamped the bunnies on Neenah cardstock and then masked them.  I sponged on distress inks for the background.  Sponging on Neenah is not the easiest technique but I think it turned out OK.  I colored the bunnies with copics, placed the masks on again, then flicked white acrylic paint over the panel.  I'm sure I'll be using these cute bunnies again since I really enjoy making Halloween cards.

Copics used:
Bunny 1 - E43, E42, E41, E40
Bunny 2 - E33, E31, E30, E50
Bunny 3 - W2, W1, W0
Bunny Ears - E02, E00, E000
Witch Costume - C7, C5, C3, YG17, YG03, YG01
Pumpkin Costume - YR18, YR14, YR12, Y35, YG17, YG03, YG01
Cat Costume - E09, E08, YR18, YR14
Broom - E25, E23, YR23, YR19, YR13, Y11

Thanks so much for stopping by.
