Cemetary - Halloween

Welcome, and thanks for stopping to visit today. We're working on Halloween cards at our house -  so here's another one to share.  But first: A big warm welcome to Connie of Crafty Home Cottage. I just met Connie through another blogger's TCBH blog (Kay of 505whimsygirl). I am so enjoying reading all these Monday posts to learn more about my blogging friends and in the process, making some new friends. What fun. Check out Connie's blog, because she has some spiffy makeovers for lots of things you have around your house, and some really interestin' schtuff.


- Stampendous wooden cemetery stamp, inked with Versafine black - stamped using Bonnie's stamp press - over a Dylusions and Lindy's starburst sprayed index card. Edged with DI weathered wood and soot. irResistible pico clear liquid applied over the 31, dark spots on the skeleton and some of the tombstones. IRL this gives a bit of shine.

- Halloween phrases were from Silhouette online store, resized for the card, and some of the elements of the purchased phrase were ungrouped and discarded (oh, I'm trying to learn). Cut from white card stock, colored with Copic 110 black, and then used Black Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel - 2 coats for the shine.

- Purchased Recollection crows were added, and the gold thing-ys were also from a Recollection Halloween pack.

- Black mat had the inside portion removed, and then this was adhered to a chartreuse card base.

Hope you like it. Have a wonderful day, and big hugs to all my sweet visitors.

Another hubby choice? You're really getting in to the Halloween spirit! These big stamps are wonderful. I'm thinking might need to get a few of these for Christmas (Christmas themed ones - not Halloween!) Thanks for sharing your awesome art!

Not a halloween person Mary but you sure know how to make them....awesome colours too. That die was crap to put through, 3/4 of it was fine but the middle would not cut through no matter how many times I did it or which way I placed it..xx.......♥aNNie

Two lovely spooky cards Mary and such fun. I too am not really sure about this type of card, but I put this down to the fact that Halloween has only become popular over here relatively recently and therefore our generation has never really celebrated it, but that said I love what you have done with your background colours and they are both wonderfully imaginative. I am back now and enjoying catching up with what's been happening here. x
