Tim Holtz had such a great Halloween release this year - I purchased several of his stamps and dies (ugh!) But - I'm using them right away - so that's a big plus right??!! I've been making Halloween cards to sell at my church fair coming up on Oct 19th and Oct 20th.
I made 4 cards using the same products and design. Ghoulish dies from Tim Holtz/Sizzix, Graveyard die an older Tim Holtz/Sizzix die, DOX inks, and Pierced Feature Frame die from PTI. These are actually more like vignettes for display as they are just a card front and I added a die cut Small Easel on the back so they stand up!
I made my backgrounds by smooshing Ranger Distress Oxides in Antique Linen, Frayed Burlap and Black Soot onto my craft mat, spritzing with water and pouncing a panel of watercolor paper into one color at a time - drying between colors.
I did the same thing on another panel of watercolor paper using DOX Antique Linen, Twisted Cintron and Black Soot to cut my monster out of.
I made another panel using DOX Antique Linen and Black Soot to use for my skeletons and bats.
I die cut the Pierced Feature Frames from PTI out of black card as well as the Graveyard from Tim Holtz/Sizzix.
I used Clipping Stickers/Halloween from Idea-ology for all the sentiments. The ghouls, sentiments and bats are all up on foam dots.
