Good Morning everyone I hope your all having a great week.
The card that I have today uses DRS designs
New Halloween Stamps.
I started by stamping Witch Feet? and colored her with copic markers, then I walked away I do this a lot when I can't get a card to come together. Then it came to me what I wanted to do for the background, dot's. I used V 04,06,09. I used a square spellbinder die and cut her out. A black layer was added with my perfect layers. And I walked away again. This card just would not work for me. I walked into my craft room the next morning to have a look and started laughing the only thing I could think of was Her spell went awry, and she was cleaning up.
So after all that it came together, really fast and I was very happy with the finished card.
The purple layer was stamped with the Large Original Plaid and Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I used a square die to cut the flag.
For the green strip I used my all time favorite background stamp the
Polka Dot Background.
I stamped the
Halloween Shoe Fits Greeting
Then I did the dot background with Copic in
The hat is from the
It was colored and fussy cut.
Have a wonderful day,

Thank you for coming to visit!! Hope you are having a very creative weekend!!!
This Halloween new release has been so fun to play with already!!! I'm having a blast!
DRS stamps used: 125G The Raven (new release), 134D Count Porkula (new release), 898C sm Bat and Moon, 548G Batty Halloween, 293P Stone Fence and Gate
I stamped Count Porkula first (isn't he cute!!) then masked him and stamped the stone fence. I then stamped the Raven (he looks so menacing, doesn't he?) Masked and stamped the moon with bat. Next I used a stamp aligner to make sure my sentiment fit just right in between branches and bat, the Happy Halloween also has bats on it. I masked the moon, branch, Raven, the count and fence to sponge my sky.
The rest of the image and foreground is colored with Copic Markers.
Poor Count Porkula, I think he is walking up to the door of a haunted house!! He just wants a bit of chocolate but I think he might be in store for a trick instead! Hmmm. I hope he doesn't get too scared!
Well, thanks for coming by and I hope I have inspired you to go create something.
Scroll down and see some more amazing cards using these and other Halloween stamps from DRS.

I hope your week has gone well! This week I'm back with a couple more new Halloween images. Are't they terrific? Love this fashion forward witch legs image and the greeting is perfect! I stamped her lovely legs, colored with Copics then added the die cut greeting and a fussy cut witch hat on top. Just a little stickles was added to the stripes on her legs and the hat band. I added a black leftover negative from a die cut border underneath the panel.
For the background, I sponged on yellow & orange ink then stamped the stars at the top. I used a white marker to color in the stars then added stickles on top. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50 and these are the Copics I used.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

I can't believe that next week is September already, can you?!? Hardly seems like Summer has even started yet and it will be October and time for pumpkins before we know it! I admit though, a small part of me is almost giddy that Autumn is near. It's my favorite season! I'm in love with the new Halloween stamps that have been shown here in a few sneak peeks lately and nothing gets you ready for the next season like stamping up cards for it. I've been inking them every chance I get!
Here's another sneak peek card I made showing off the new Halloween Shoe Fits Greeting (143D) and the adorable Witch Feet (140H).
I colored the image with Copic Markers and sponged green ink around it while it was in a Nestie die. Using the Out-Of-The-Box Technique allowed me to use a smaller die that looked better with my layout--that's why the broom is hanging out of the oval shape a bit. As you can see I split up the greeting above and below my image and three bat punchies embellished this card nicely. A white gel pen gave them eyes and made them creepy.. It's almost like they're looking at you! Hope you like it!
Thanks for stopping here today. We appreciate your visit!

DRS Designs is getting ready to release some great stamps for the Halloween holiday and I'm featuring the new Witch Feet (140H) on my card today. A witch is such a classic Halloween costume, but I never dressed up as one when I went trick or treating as a child. Ragged black clothes and a green face, just wasn't my thing. And it's still not. See her orange dress and glittery, purple boots? Who says a witch can't be fashionable...lol.
The image was die cut and layered onto a background made by randomly stamping the Empty Spider Web in black ink. I added a die cut spider, a few orange half pearls and The Witch is Always In greeting to complete it.
Sadly, it's rare for me to dress up anymore. Maybe I need to consider getting a costume like this :) What about you? Do you still dress up for Halloween?
Thanks for stopping by!

I absolutely love this new Leonard Pig image, Count Porkula, even his name is adorable! Isn't he just the cutest? I know I'm going to have some fun stamping and creating with him.
For today's card I stamped Count Porkula in Memento Black ink on white CS, colored him with Copics and then die cut him with an oval nestie. I created the pumpkin by die cutting three ovals from orange CS, and sponging some Pumpkin Pie ink around all the edges. The middle oval was die cut a second time with a smaller oval to form a frame for the image. The vine and leaves were made using a flourish die that I cut and pieced where I wanted it to go. The grass was punched with a border punch and added to the black layer that was stamped with the spooky eyes background stamp with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with detail white embossing powder. The sentiment was stamped in black ink and die cut. Some pumpkin pie ink was sponged around the edges. Some dotted ribbon completes the look. Hope you like it.
Be sure to check the DRS on line store for the newest Halloween stamps, including Count Porkula!
