Challenge: Oct. 22nd The 31 Days of Halloween, 2021

Coming at ya tonight with some CarnEvil fun featuring The Grimm ReaperπŸ’€  I made a sorta slim line card....I always forget the dimensions of these!  The sentiment is from A Wicked Compendium of Halloween Sayings from the faBOOlous new Halloween Collection by LeighSBDesigns!

The background is a rubber stamp Spray Webbing by Lost Coast Designs on kraft paper.  This is going to the challenge portion of the 31 Days of Halloween Hop + Challenge hosted by LeighSBDesigns!  All the details and linky party are HERE!  Leigh has a super sale going on now for Halloween goodness past and brand new collection HERE!

Hop: Oct. 2 Catch Up

Having issued myself a challenge to have a project for all 31 days of The 31 Days of Halloween Hop + Challenge hosted by LeighSBDesigns, my little fingers have been getting inky, painty and gluey big time!  This one is another journal page using CCC#23 Haunted House by Oddball Art! 

I used foamies, stamps by Viva Las Vegas, Dylusions and Butterside Down Stamps.  I also added a leftover bat from Leigh's Gothic Nightmare Catcher!  The menacing eyes at the top are negative cuts from my layered cat.  I popped the haunted house on some paper inked and run through the eyes embossing folder from  my stash!

Challenge: Oct. 21st The 31 Days of Halloween, 2021

 Wee Hee!  What another fun day or night ;) having fun with some of Leigh's faBOOlous designs!  I am trying to make myself regularly work in one of my many almost empty journals!  It is something I seem to just not do most of the time but not tonight!

I started with a page that had literally gobs of acrylic paint here and there and topped it with Gelatos (another forgotten ingredient rarely used!).  I used the negative cut from the bats from the Gothic Nightmare Catcher to stamp black soot Distress Ink to make some bats!  I colored the Wicked Witch Robed Hand digi with Copics and fussy cut.  The Cricut did the work for the Poison Apple Colourize It SVG Cutz Set!  I save most all of my negative cuts and extra cuts from the Cricut so I had the Enchanted Moon from the Once Upon a Moonlit Night Colourize It SVG Cutz Set.  All I needed was the lime back circle so I cheated and cut it out by hand so it is a bit wonky!  The sentiments came with the Wicked Witch Robed Hand + Senti Set Digi and Poison Apple Saying Set Digi.  I used Pitt Big Brush Artist pen to edge things and give it a bit of depth and some stitching! (Susan R., you still rule at stitching and doodling! πŸ‘»)

Hop: Oct. 1st Catch up the 31 Days of Halloween, 2021

 I am a catch up plan to make sure I had a post for every day of the 31 Days of Halloween Hop + Challenge!  Today is a PURRfect Layered Black Cat that was a freebie from Special Heart Studio!

This guy is 6 inches across not counting his wishers!  I used light lavender for two layers because I couldn't find any gray cardstock but for Halloween I think it is fine!πŸ’€  So I am linking this up at the 31 Days of Halloween Hop + Challenge hosted by LeighSBDesigns!  All the details are HERE!
LeighSBDesigns has a sale going on now for the Halloween releases new and previous ones, too!

Challenge: Oct. 20th the 31 Days of Halloween, 2021

I had another fantastic day creating with Leigh's new Halloween Collection!  Now is a great time to shop cause the Halloween goodies are on sale!

I used the Gothic Crystal Ball Easel Card to make a crystal ball for my Halloween decorations!  This is a SVG/Cutz file and really a delight to work with!  

I also used Furness Forest Faerie Ring Lace SVG Cutz for the "magic" bit of the ball adding Salem (printed tiny to fit the 4 inch circle) from the Black Cats Set of 3 Cats and 2 Sentiments!  Next came the quote from A Wicked Compendium of Halloween Sayings inked with carved pumpkin Distress Ink!  Everything else was inked with black soot Distress Ink.  I took a little strip of cardstock and attached to the front ang back of the stand so that it stays standing.  I also added some red acrylic paint Salem's eyes and the bats eyes πŸ‘»

Harpy Ghost is hanging out with some buds on a frozen pizza tray!  They are singing all sorts of Halloween songs learned from the days of their youth!  I painted the cardboard with acrylic paints.  The musical staff and notes and BOO were cut out with the Cricut using clip art from Pixabay.  The little pals are foamies.  Now it is your turn to SPOOK us or not, your call but we do want to see what you are creating this month!  Join us at Ike's World Challenges #149 Anything Goes/Trick or Treat!

Challenge: Oct. 18th the 31 Days of Halloween Hop + Challenge

Today's play was with Leigh's Gothic Nightmare Catcher SVG Cutz!  I had so much fun!  So here we go!

I used Distress Oxide Sprays and Lindy's Stamp Gang's Mystic Malachite Moon Shadow Mist.  I used some red glitter foam for the bat's eyes and embroidery floss to hang them!  This is a two sided design that looks awesome hanging in the window but was not good for taking a photo!  I am entering this in the 31 Days of Halloween Hop + Challenge hosted by LeighSBDesigns!  All the details and linky are HERE!  I am entering this in the challenge part because it is Leigh's design!

Leigh has a fantastic new Halloween Collection and a great sale going on now HERE at LeighSBDesigns!
