Happy Haunting Blog Hop

Hi everyone,  I'm participating in a blog hop today with Imagine Crafts and Crackerbox/SoSuzy stamps and I've got 2 cards to share.

My Happy Haunting card uses the Birthday Skeleton.  He was stamped with VersaFine Ink in Onyx Black, then I used Memento Markers  to add color.

For the frame, I used Rinea Marigold/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper, then I die cut it with Lawn Fawn dies for the perfect frame.

Creating a horizontal card, I framed my image with the foiled frame.  By adding Happy Haunting, he becomes a perfect Halloween card, don't you think?  

My next card uses the Halloween Tree and the awesome VersaFine Clair Inks.

Placing the stamp on my Misti, I first inked the tree with Fallen Leaves.  Using a dauber, I added additional colors to the stamp using Nocturne, Cheerful, Summertime, Tulip Red, and Green Oasis inks.

The card was created from orange cardstock.  A tartan panel was matted with green cardstock and strips of orange and green added across the center.  Twine was wrapped around the panel and it was then added to the card. The tree was die cut and matted with a larger die and added to the card with foam adhesives.

Happy Haunting was stamped in Nocturne Ink and then cut apart.  It was then matted with orange and green cardstock then added to the card.

  14. Both cards are so cool! I love that you used a birthday stamp and made it into a Halloween card, getting double duty out of stamps is always a great thing :) Thanks for sharing how you used a dauber to add the additional colors to the tree stamp, I'm definitely going to try that. Thanks for sharing both cards and for the inspiration. (mardy14@bellsouth.net)
