I’m not sure why I went with a Halloween theme for this card. I just had this idea in my head to do Halloween cupcakes!
I printed off three of the cupcakes and colored them with my copics. I then added some stickles & Nuevo Drop to look like sprinkles. I decided to go with a slimline so that I could have enough room for all 3 of my cupcakes. I think that this is an older Echo Park line. I added just a bit of black glimmer paper in behind and of course some enamel dots. I just printed the sentiment off on my computer and I still felt it needed something to give it more of that Halloween theme, so I went with some little silver spiderwebs.
Head on over to the blog…the Design Team has some really great projects for you to check out! Be sure to play along with us this month too!
I hope everyone had a fun Halloween! I know not everyone celebrates but we do here in Canada and my son was an avocado! Of course he was happy with all the candy he got but it was really cold here! There was ice and snow in some areas!
Inspired by the green and the witch, I did a fun ink smooshed background and then used my Recollections stamp and die set for the witch, sentiment and black cat. Some glittered ribbon and just a small piece of DP and a few enamel dots to finish off.
Don’t forget to stop by the blog to play along with us this month and to see what the rest of the DT has created.
Ok, so I had these wooden pumpkins in my box and thought that I would take a stab at them!
I was inspired by the black & white pumpkins in this pic as well as the gingham pattern.
Here’s what became of them:
Now I did the one on the right first. I used the Tim Holtz Mica Stain in the Empty Tomb and then went over it with my Simple Stories Gingham stencil and some Nuevo Glimmer paste in Moonstone. This actually didn’t turn out quite the way I wanted it to. The empty tomb was a bit too light and the moonstone actually had a bit of a blue tinge to it.
For the second one, I sprayed it first in the Black Soot Spray stain and then using the stencil again, I went over it with the Tim Holtz Distress Grit Paste in the Snowfall from the Christmas collection. Again, going with the idea of using these holiday products for their colors not their collections. This got me a bit closer to what I had envisioned but I think just some good old fashioned white textured paste probably would have done the trick and got me that stark white that I wanted!
I did want it to be a bit rustic which is why you can see the small bits of the paste. I didn’t want them to be totally smooth.
Now it’s time to head on over to the blog and see all the great inspiration that the DT has drawn from this picture…what will you create??
This one has some great elements and fun layers to play with.
I was in the mood to do a little Halloween today. So just using a variety of papers in my box and pairing it with a cute stamp set from Stampin Up and voila! I added a few enamel stars from my stash as well.

As always, our challenge is anything goes and each month we give you an inspiration piece to get you started.
Here’s what I created for you
I was really inspired by those skeleton heads! I was actually going to go black and white and then I decided to add a little gold in there just because. The image is from a Tim Holtz halloween collection that I have and I went over it with some distress ink. The paper is from recollections. I die cut a piece of gold foil paper and then did a bit of gold embossing for my sentiment. I really like how this turned out.
Be sure to stop by the blog and see the great creations that the rest of the DT has done and be sure to play along with us with your own Halloween inspired project!
For my card I really liked that green/black/orange color combo so I started with that. I was also drawn to the skeleton.
Using just some scraps I decided to create this little card! I think it turned out really well. Be sure to head to our blog and check out how the rest of the DT interpreted the inspiration piece and to play along with us. Our challenge is always anything goes, you just have to be inspired by the image. Have fun!
Look at our great inspiration piece for you this month!
I really loved the dark, spooky black and orange in this inspiration piece. I was also drawn to the spooky haunted house.
I used some bits from the Chillingsworth Manor by Echo Park and some from a Recollections set that I had as well. I cut out the focal image from a 3×4 card. I hope that you will play along with us on this month’s challenge. Don’t forget to stop by and leave some love for the rest of the DT!
