Andrea made Halloween tags using some of her favorite dies: Splatter Proof and Coffee Break by Seth Apter, and Halloween Hangouts by Tim Holtz. Not afraid to mix her holidays, she also used My Favorite Things’ Christmas Candy Land paper in the background.
Anna-Karin made a cardboard wall-hanging this week, telling the story of Mr Bones, stamped with Tim Holtz’s Mr Bones set on a Sizzix Thermoplastic Sheet. The title was die cut from Simon Says Stamp Coal Glimmery Cardstock.
Barbara has altered a box with a lot of Halloween themed products! She used Tim Holtz Witchcraft Thinlits die, Tim Holtz Idea-ology Halloween Quote Chips, Tim Holtz-Idea-ology Halloween adornments, Tim Holtz idea-ology Broomsticks and Tim Holtz Stacked label Thinlits die.
Cheiron created a treat bag using the Tim Holtz Treat Bag die. She embellished her treat bag with a Layered Jack O’Lantern die and punched a hole on either side of the bag and used some twine from the Idea-ology Halloween Trimmings to create a handle.
Emma created a treat box using Tim Holtz’s Vignette Box as a base. She bought the spooky scene to life, by adding the vampire silhouette from the Ghoulish Die Set and surrounded him with idea-ology pieces including Woodland Trees and Tombstones complete with Halloween Remnant Rubs.
Kath decorated an Etcetera Tag using Distress Oxide inks and Tim Holtz/Sizzix Swirling Stars Thinlits to create a spooky nightime sky, Tim Holtz/Sizzix Alphanumeric 1″ Thinlits and Idea-ology Gothic Cling Foam Stamps for the wording and added some friendly ghosts.
Maura is up to some spooky mischief in her art journal with Andrea’s Inky Antics stamp set Happy Hauntings, Tim Holtz’s Twisted stencil, and lots of paint layers with colors like Paper Artsy’s Autumn Fire and Yellow Submarine.
Sandra had so much fun making this devilish Halloween card, she transformed the mister of Purveyor stamp set into the devil. She used the Drip Egde die with Dylusions Spray Postbox Red to create a bloody effect in the background.
So now it’s YOUR turn to get out your inks, paints and all things arty and start creating! We are looking forward to seeing what you make!
