Mama Elephant Bootastic Halloween Card

Here is another Halloween Card I made.  This one using Bootastic from Mama Elephant.

For this card I used:
  • Mama Elephant Bootastic Stamps and Dies
  • Copic Markers C1, C3, C5, R29, R59, E50, E53, Y06, YR14, E35, YR 31
  • Stampendous Detailed Black and Enchanted Aubergine Embossing Powders
  • Ranger Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder
  • Martha Stewart Halloween Stamps
  • Distress Inks Forest Moss, Stormy Sky, Chipped Sapphire, Dusty Concord, Black Soot.
To make the card, I first crated the background.  I used watercolor paper and the distress inks like watercolors.  I then stamped the images from Bootastic on white card stock with Memento Black ink.  These were then colored with the Copic markers, and cut using the matching dies.  I added the images to the background I had created.  The fence, bats and sentiment were stamped with Versmark,  Enchanted Aubergine embossing powder was added to the fence, Detailed Black Embossing Powder used for the bats and Liquid Platinum added to the sentiment and heat set.  The entire image was added to the card base.

Bird Crazy Halloween Cards

Love these Crazy Birds!  They are quick and easy to color, and the matching dies are wonderful.

Here are two Halloween Cards I made with the Bird Crazy stamps and dies.  I also used Crazy Things and Crazy Talk.

For these cards I used:
  • Bird Crazy, stamps and dies
  • Crazy Things
  • Crazy Talk
  • Distress Ink (a variety of colors)
  • Staz-on Black
To make the cards, I stamped the birds twice with the Staz-on ink, then colored them with the Distress Inks.  Then using the matching dies, I cut the birds, eyes and wings.  I then stamped and colored the broom, hat and pumpkin.  For these, I needed to fussy cut them, since I don't have the matching dies. I stamped the sentiment on a piece of scrap paper.

I assembled the cards, using pop-dots for the eyes and layering all of the other images.  The moon was cut from a piece of patterned paper.  There was a blank area on the card, so  I stamped a few bats (from an old Martha Stewart set) in black.
