It's a great time to stock up, or get some Christmas shopping done, plus we just released 7 new sets perfect for making your Christmas cards & gifts!

So this weeks Totally Stampalicious challenge is to make a Halloween card or project. Can you guess what stamp I used...it's the adorable Sean with Flower! Honestly it didn't take much to alter it, anyone could do it!

I stamped Sean onto copy paper, then traced out a robe to cover his clothing. I cut it out and traced aropund it onto neenah solar crest cardstock with the copic 0.3 liner. I also added some lines to make it look like folds in the draped robe. Then I coloured it in using copic C9, C7 and C5. Then I cut it out.

I masked off the flower Sean was holding with a post it note. Then stamped the image onto cardstock and I also stamped just his head.

To make him look pale, I coloured his face with E40, E41 and E000. His hair was coloured with the same copic C's as his robe. I sponged riding hood red lightly onto his face and drew in the mouth & teeth...I practiced several mouths on a scrap piece of paper before I settled on this one. The teeth were brightened up a bit with a white inkessentials pen. The head is popped up.

Before adhereing the robe, I punched the branch from the 2-step bird punch and trimmed off the leaves. The blade was made with silver cardstock & the wide oval punch. I glued this into position then added the robe.

The card base is black with a layer of riding hood red and then coredinations that has been embossed with the skeleton scroll EF.

I couldn't resist using the MS drippy goo punch and you can see in the photo below I added some crystal effects to some of the drips.

The single drip coming off the blade was made with the MS teardrop punch and I added crystal effects to it too!


The sentiment is also a MS punch....I hope she appreciates how rich I've made her!!!!! lol


Well I think that about explains it, just let me know if you have any questions!


Please join us in our challenge, and upload your creation to the Totally Stampalicious Blog!


Happy Halloween,

Laurie
