Halloween cards

This card uses an image from Oxford Impressions and a cutter file from Ileana Russell, I Scrap Designs, for the phrase. I thought it was a great one for this image and made for a fun card. It is coloured and airbrushed with Copic markers.

This is a simple card using images from Oxford Impressions, that just sets a mood or tone for Halloween. Distress inks were used to colour this card.

This is my take on a more ghoulish card. The stamps are all Oxford Impressions. I remember reading a bunch of Poe's short stories as a teen and thinking that he had a very strange mind. But I still remember some of them, even these many years later. Distress inks and acrylic paints were used to colour this card.

All the images on this card are from Oxford Impressions as well. It is coloured with distress inks and copic markers.

Haunted Halloween

Suzanne at Oxford Impressions has a new plate of Halloween images called Haunted. These images work well together and with the images on her other two Halloween plates called Trick or Treat and Wicked.

These images are stamped with Memento black on Heavenly White cardstock, from the Paper Temptress, masking as needed. The children are coloured with Copics markers and the background is airbrushed with the Copics. The word phrase is computer generated using the Blackletter font, while Beware is stamped.

The girl and pumpkin are stamped with Memento black on Heavenly White cardstock and coloured with Copic markers. The wings are made with hot glue in a Krafty Lady mold from After Midnight stamps. These are mounted onto a gold framed specialty paper window, topped with gold embossed lace on black cardstock. This is mounted on a cuttlebugged green card, accented with Brilliance gold, mounted onto orange card, then a black base.

My husband says this card reminds him of the movie Beetlejuice. The girl is stamped on Heavenly White cardstock, with Memento black and coloured with Copics. The background was made with various distress inks, overstamped with Memento inks.

Supplies used: All stamps Oxford Impressions, Copic markers and airbrush, distress inks, cardstock from the Paper Temptress, various cardstocks, Memento ink, Krafty Lady mold, Cuttlebug folder
