Toe Tag Halloween Invitations

It's invitation time! It's out 10th Annual Halloween Party!  And my Halloween Invitations have for the most part gone out!  This year I went with a Toe Tag and I LOVE this invitation.  You'll find I have blurred out my private information.
 
Lets start with these creepy vinyl fingers I bought at my $1 Store,  $2 for 10 fingers.  Gross and everyone said so!
 
I found these tags on Pinterest and thought they were PERFECT!  Especially one I added my own spookiness to them.

 
I tried to find TH Splatter stencil so I could do these blood splatters with no luck.  So I smashed my Barn Door stain down hard.  The harder you smash the more it splatters.  Oh and cover up, I made a mess of my new shirt.
 
I stamped the skull and date using one of those S.M.A.S.H stampy things...very technical term.
 
Stamping with a lighter colour really adds a spooky layer.
 
On the back I continued the distress with ink and a HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
 

All lined up with those creepy bloody fingers.
I think these are my favourite Halloween Invitations yet.  They took no time to make and are really gross! 
 
I have my Halloween Costume picked out!  What are you dressing up as?

Journaling Tuck Spots and Pockets

It is official... I am addicted to Journaling.  This is an inspiration post... why?  I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas.  I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.  
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.

Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap ShotzMarch Scrapbook Kit.

A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.

Nicole Wright Designs Fallen Blossomis used on the tag, stamped and watercolored with worn lipstick oxide ink.

I used pages from my 115 year old art journal to create another mini.  Stamping and watercoloring throughout each page with Garden Flower and my stamp set Fallen Blossom.

Tuck spots and pockets for stuffing notes.  

The March Kit with the new Memoranda paper is perfect on it's own.  But I still cut it up and collaged with it.

I fussy cut a found relative since I am still trying to get my hands on …

Creating a Background with Sprays and Stamping

The snow is melting and the birds are coming home.  While there may be a couple feet of snow still on the ground a glimpse of spring can be found in this refreshing card.  A quick look how to create your own background.

Inking  the leaf border stamp and filling up the first layer is quick.  I sprayed the second layer with dylusions sprays and used a sponge to ink through the matching stencil.

Apply ink again to the large leaf border and stamp right over top of the stencil to create dimension.  I coloured the butterflies with distress markers and wow do they pop!

What a beautiful background.

I love the layered look of the stenciled leaves and stamping.

Popping up the butterflies.

Hello spring!

Sprays and inks go a long way to creating a stunning background.  Look around at what you have a create your own spring paper.


Watercoloring with Butterflies & Oxides

The Eileen Hull Inspiration Team has been sharing tutorials all month long.  I do have a video tutorial for this card but it won't be read for awhile.  Hey, it happens.  I at least have a couple of photo's until the whole video is posted on Creative Scrapbooker Magazines website.


Loving the new Oxide inks especially as we approach those soft easter pallets.

A little stamping.

I know it's not a box or cool journal.  One of my favourite dies is the Birds & Butterflies thinlit.  Yep, there are pretty little dies perfect for card making too.



I love the intricate butterfly to layer over.

A simple card and no it's not even a journal.

I will share the video when it's all done and posted.  I will even embed it in the post too.
Onto next month...
