BOO!



Happy Friday everyone! It's Cathy here sharing some funny spookiness today using the adorable new Ghosts stamps!

These are hands down my favorite ghost stamps out there! They are just too cute and what's even better about this stamp set? They come with birthday sentiments that are perfect with their expressions. Love that can you use these for October birthdays along with Halloween.




I couldn't wait to create a funny little scene with them. I've cut a panel for the background from watercolor cardstock and masked the moon with a die-cut circle before inking the night sky with Broken China, Chipped Sapphire, Dusty Concord and Black Soot Distress inks. I spritzed a little Perfect Pearls mixed with water to add a few stars and sparkle.

I added craters to the moon with a paintbrush and watered down Hickory Smoke Distress ink and used a bat stencil with black modeling paste for some texture and dimension.



I die-cut a Tim Holtz Gothic Gate and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder to give it a metallic shine. I've also die-cut the "BOO" sentiment with a Tim Holtz Sizzix die and colored it with Copics to match the witch hats on those mischievous little ghosts.

They really look like they've scared their friend! Look how pale he is!


I Copic colored all of the images and fussy cut them out, but there are also coordinating dies to this stamp set available in the shop. The pumpkins are from the brand new Pumpkin Bear stamps. I love how easy it is to mix and match Gerda Steiner stamps!

Hope you all have a fabulous crafty weekend and see you again soon!

This is a great card. I love the shape and the little ghosts and the background is perfect. I’ll have to try that background technique (making a night sky).

Hi everyone! It’s Jeannie (InsideoutJeans) on the blog today with Gerda Steiner Design’s stamp set named, Be Mine Monster. This little monster is so adorable -- I just had to use him right away.



I stamped him out using Fadeout Ink and colored him using copic markers. I used Fadeout Inkbecause when I first saw him, I imagined him to be furry so I wanted to create that texture without a dark...
