My New Halloween Stamps And A "Batty" Halloween Card
Hello everyone! It's been a crazy couple of weeks and I am very excited to announce that I have come out with a small line of Halloween stamps here in Brasil. Long story short....I was asked to give a charity class next weekend and they asked me for Halloween projects. I knew I could never get stamps here in time so I finally took one of those ideas in my head and made it a reality. My friend Francine here has a rubber stamp company called Scraplooving and I have always loved her images. So I tossed the idea out to her of me designing some Halloween images that she could make for the class (and to sell). She said let's run with this and before I knew it, I was sketching ideas, which is really not that easy for someone who is not an artist, and the next thing I knew....I had rubber stamps in my hands that I made! Crazy!
Here are the designs I have come out with -
I wanted to share a card I made yesterday using some of the stamps. If you wanted to recreate the card I am sure you have a bat image (or two) in your stash. LOL
I started by stamping the two bat images (from HERE and HERE) with Onyx Black Versafine ink onto white cardstock. Then had the Scan N Cut cut the images for me.
Next, I went through my stash of papers and adhered this paper to my A2 card front.
Next, I cut a piece of black cardstock using the largest die from the Nested Stitched Scallop Rectangle set and I also cut a piece of designer paper with the largest die from the Rectangle Frame set - both from Cottage Cutz. Then I stamped the phrase "Halloween Wishes" from THIS set using Onyx Black Versafine ink and adhered the designer paper to the black cardstock, which I then adhered to the card front.
Next I adhered the bats around the front of the card, above the phrase.
And the last thing I did...just to add a splash of color, was to adhere 3 purple sequins to the card front. Done!!
I hope you enjoyed this card. Let me know what you think by leaving a comment below. And please stop back tomorrow when I will have another "bat" themed Halloween card for you! Until next time -
