Treats For Mummy Plus One Minute Video

Hey friends, it's time for another project for Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps!  I had a vision for this card and I'm happy to say, it turned out just like I imagined.  It's always a plus when that happens.  I'm showcasing the stamp of the month which is 50% off, along with Catherine Pooler Inks, which are new to the store.  I have quickly fallen in love with these inks!   The coverage is amazing and the colors are absolutely delish.  Before I added the washi tape to my background, I actually thought the colors looked a bit like the house colors for Gryffindor!  What do you think?

I created this inky background using Catherine Pooler Inks and created a 1 minute video for my Crafty Friday Night video series on YouTube.  You can see that process in the video at the end of my post.




I also used chat bubble dies with my Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D foam sheets to create popped up dimension for my bubble sentiments.   I splattered some of my old October Afternoon sprinkles (Witches Brew) on my word bubbles as well.





To lightly color my mummy, I used my gray Zig brush marker and added some tiny dots from an extra fine tipped black pen.




I had colored up this potion bottle awhile back and had been saving it, so I added it to the mix as well.




I hope this fun project has given you some ideas!

Holiday Challenge at Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps

We're kicking off the latest challenge at Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps.  The theme?  All holidays!  Yup, whatever your little heart desires.  Any holiday card is welcome in this challenge, as long as it's a new creation, no back linking.  You can link up, here:  Holiday challenge


I'm all about Halloween right now, so I created a Ranger Ink background for my spooky scene.   I used, 5 different Halloween stamps, which, by the way, are on sale this month.  Get an additional 15% off Halloween and Fall stamps when added to your shopping cart.  Woo hoo!  

(FTC Disclosure: as an affiliate for various companies in the craft industry, I will receive a small commission for purchases made through my convenient affiliate links.  This does not affect your purchase price.)










Let me share a few key tips on how I made this card.  I wanted my silhouette images to really pop, so I inked all my images with black ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  This also allows me to create my blended background without any smudging.






For my moon, I used a 1" circle punch to punch out my moon before blending.  After the background blending, I adhered my moon back onto my card,  and used a gray brush marker and water brush to create the shade effect.  I also used the water brush to dilute some of the ink around the moon for a halo effect.  Blot with a paper towel to lift off the diluted ink.  Magic!

Lastly, I added paint droplets to paint stars in the sky and a white gel pen to accent my tree limbs, spider and pumpkin so it would appear as if moonlight was shining on them.  A little bit of water splatters were also tossed about on my background and dabbed with a paper towel.





Click the graphic below, to shop the Fall/Halloween selection that's on sale.




The stamp of the month is marked 50% off this month, so be sure and add this to your cart!  It's a good size, at 1.75 x 3.25 inches.   You'll find card samples when you click the link, as well.





Head on over to the Crackerbox & Suzy blog to link up to the challenge, and check out all the design team inspiration.  There's always a prize up for grabs, so don't miss out!  Thanks for popping in.  You'll find links to some of the products that I used below.  See you next time...... Terri
