Lori loves seeing kids in costumes at Halloween and thought it would be perfect to watercolor the adorable Colorado Craft, Anita Jeram, Scaredy Cats and Boo Time critters. The night sky was created using a Tim Holtz Moon Mask, Villainous Potion and Hickory Smoke Spray stains, a touch of Tarnished Brass Mica Spray, and a few white stars were added with a White Pen. She then layered in the Ghost Town houses, Gates and the costumed critters,with a few being a tad afraid to get too close, so they were adhered to the outside Platinum embossed frame. Happy Halloween!

Andrea leans toward the cute side of spooky, so she made a Witch’s brew cart card. She used Honey Bee’s Market Cart Builder dies and their Pumpkin Spice Market Cart Add On dies, along with Dina Wakley’s new Black Media Gloss Spray. She colored the cart and pumpkins using Distress Watercolor Pencils.

Anna-Karin made a Halloween tag this week, creating a 3D paper scarecrow with Tim Holtz The Scarecrow stamp set. The scarecrow was colored with Distress Watercolor Pencils and the scene was embellished with idea-ology Pumpkins.

Barbara created a decoration themed Halloween using two Idea-ology Vignette boxes (Vignette Boxes SquaresVignette Boxes Structure). She created texture on the base and on the edges of her work with Ranger Distress Crypt Halloween Grit-Paste, Ranger Embossing Glaze Peeled Paint and Hickory Smoke. She covered the Vignette’s sides with Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Halloween Design TapeDesigns. Inside the Vignettes, she added Idea-ology Ornate Metal Gates, Skulls, Creepy Eyes, Urns, Curiosites Sticker Book.

Emma is getting ready for Halloween and made a spooky party menu full of tricks and treats. She created the moonlit sky using the Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Moon Mask and branches from Mr Bones’ stamp set and combined the background with dies from the Sizzix Halloween Vault 2021 series before completing her menu with a Trick Or Treat sentiment from Tim’s Unraveled stamp set.

Kath has been decorating Halloween treat bags for the little Trick or Treaters in her street using Tim Holtz/Ranger Black Distress Woodgrain cardstock and Distress Mica Stains, Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Thorned Layering Stencil and Sizzix Bold Text Halloween and Frightful Things Thinlits.

Macarena made a dark mood card using resin castings from Stamperia Lady Vagabond Fly Machine soft mold and Prima Marketing Amun and Bast Finnabair Decor Mould. She also stamped and clear embossed hand bones from Tim Holtz Weird Science stamp set on the black background.

Maura used a Simon Says Stamp White Slimline card, Simon Says Stamp’s Oh Frank stamp set, and Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Pencils to make her Halloween card.

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Tim Holtz Distress HALLOWEEN MICA STAIN SET 3 Ranger on the background, and decorated it with Tim Holtz Cling Rubber Stamps MONSTROUS and Tim Holtz Idea-ology CURIOSITIES Sticker Book.

Zoey used Tim Holtz Distress Holiday Mica Stain Set 3 and Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Pearl Mica Crayons HOLIDAY SET 3 to add highlight to her tag and pumpking. She used Distress Spray and Oxide Spray for the background and used a stencil with some grit paste. The pumpkin is from the Pumpkinghead colorize
