TMS # 626

October folks. It’s loud and proud and showing us that the final 3rd of the year is here! Yikes!

This is the sketch that we are working with this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches.

I just felt like doing a Halloween card, even though I don’t really send them out that much!

The stamp is from Stampin Up and the paper is Echo Park. I did a little ink blending so that white wasn’t so stark.

Head on over to the blog and see the great DT projects for this week’s sketch!

2 Old Bats: September

Welcome everyone to this month’s new challenge for 2 Old Bats Halloween Challenge. Can you believe we are in September already!

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!

Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge: July

Here is this month’s challenge at Two Old Bats inspirational challenge!

Lots to choose in this one, maybe it’s your pet in a costume, pumpkins, rats, moons and cats. Ravens and Witches Hats! Oooooohh I made a poem!! 😉

I chose to go with the Ravens as my inspiration. I had this cut apart with the ravens in a tree and then some little Tim Holtz die cuts. I used a couple of different DPs for this card!

Come by the blog, see what the DT has created and please play along with us!

Two Old Bats: June Challenge

Happy June everyone! Wow! I can’t believe we are here already. Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge June challenge is up and ready to go for everyone!

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!

TOBHC: November

November is here! Can you believe it!

Ok so today is our first full challenge over at Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge...our jump start challenge was such an overwhelming success we can’t wait to see what you create with a whole month to do so!

Look at our awesome November mood board!

Our theme is anything goes and we hope that you will use this mood board as a kick start to your project as you play along with us!

I was really inspired by the black, white and purple color scheme as well as the witch silhouette for my card.

I used some Tim Holtz distress oxides to create the background and then I had a Recollections stamp and die set for the images. A little scrap of DP and some twine as well as a sentiment from Tim Holtz and we are set to go. I love how this turned out.

Now head over to the blog to see how the rest of the team were inspired by the board and then we hope that you will play along with us!

It doesn’t have to be a card or a layout..it can be anything you want! Great right!?

So we are jump starting the challenge this month!

Here is our inspiration board for October!

Lots to pick from with this one. For me, I really liked that black and white word board and the pumpkins. So here’s my card

I was surprised how much Halloween stuff I actually have! Some dating back to 2009 if you can believe it! For this card I used some Chillingsworth Manor paper from Echo Park (2012) I’m pretty sure I won this collection. I added in some pumpkins that I die cut and embossed using an old Cuttlebug set that I had. The little words are just from Chillingsworth Manor as well and then the enamel dots are my stash. I love how this turned out and I can’t wait for you to play along with us.

Head on over to the blog to see what the rest of the DT has created and we hope that you will play along with us!

Spooky

Can you believe it is only a week until Hallowe’en!  I have a fun card for you today for the Digital Delights inspiration post.  Every Thursday we have some fun inspiration pieces for you using a variety of images from the Digtial Delights store.  Here is my card using the Spooky Pumpkin.  It is available in either black & white or colored.

I paired it with the Ghoulish Sentiments set as well.

 

I just used some scrap pieces of Hallowe’en paper for this card.  I got the ribbon in a swap awhile a go.  The bling is from my stash and the image was colored with Copics.  I added some Ranger ink around the edges.  I hope you like it and don’t forget to visit the blog to see the rest of the great projects this week.
