Simon Says Stamp – Halloween Kit 2017 (Part Two)

October 30th, 2017 klwade Posted in Cardmaking, Crafts, Simon Says Stamp Card Kit 4 Comments »

I finally got around to finishing my Halloween cards.   And before Halloween!   LOL  What an accomplishment!

I still had more ideas, but really, it needed to stop.

This first card came to me when I was looking at my stencils.  I loved all the brooms and thought they would be cute on a spooky skyline.

 

This card came to me while looking at the candies.  Nothing looks more yummy than a bunch of candies.  Besides I had just gotten the Nuvo drops and had to use them.

This card was a failed attempt to look like a lit pumpkin at night.  I made a mess of it.  But it did become a card.

I stole this idea from Jennifer McGuire.  She did some cute cards using mesh.

 

Close up of the cat.

 

Since I was stealing, I decided to steal more.  I took this directly from the kit.

I decided to use some of the stickers.   I am not a huge fan of stickers.  They always look odd to me on a card.  But I had to try.

 

 

In case you missed my other post.  These are the cards I did earlier.

 

 

 

So WITCH one is your favorite.

 

Thanks for checking it out.

 


Simon Says Stamp 2017 Halloween Kit – Creepy Cute!

October 2nd, 2017 klwade Posted in Cardmaking, Crafts, Simon Says Stamp Card Kit 4 Comments »

It comes as no surprise to friends and family that Halloween is my favorite holiday.  Nothing is as exciting than cute critters in witches hats…   paper in orange, black, green and purple.  A ghost or two.

So when Simon Says Stamp came out with their annual Halloween kit I was right there…probably order number 17 in the list of people.

The stamp set is just awesome.

My first card I wanted to use a new bat stencil I bought recently.   I used black embossing paste but discovered it was matte and hard to see.  I ended up using some wonderful purple glitter paint on the card to highlight the bats.

My second card I had wanted to use the google eyes.

Isn’t that cute how they eyes come out of the paper.

I don’ know about you but usually the first two cards are a struggle when I start a kit, I seem to get better as the card progress.

You be the judge.

Pretty simple card but I like it.

I bought some cool green glitter I just needed to use.

I ended up using the green glitter on the witches brew….but to spice it up I used the glow in the dark drops and the crystal blizzard nuvo drops to create the bubbles.

A close up….too bad I cannot get a photo of the glow in the dark

For my 5th card, I wanted to use the shaker beads.

I used the moon stamp and then re-stamped it again to use the glow in the dark embossing powder.

There are more cards to post but I wanted to make the deadline for the Simon Says Stamp Challenge.

 

Look for more later this week.
