Kevin Nakagawa Haunted House

This is a card that I got to watch Kevin (owner of Stampscapes) make.
Some stampers of one of his groups got together in Chicago to stamp together in August this year and he made this card.
Kevin used Stampscapes and Crackerbox Palace stamps.
He used Marvy inks and Colorbox Stylus.  White ink was added over the windows and as haze.  A white pen was used for the dots. 
Here is the stamping group.

Happy Halloween Witch

Currie stamped the witch on white card stock, colored and cut her out. 
Then stamped the little trick or treaters on the bottom and the bats on top on yellowish/orangeish card stock.
She matted the image on corrugated cardboard and then on green and black.
The stars she glued on are just flat silver stars.
Used Vintage Photo ink, glitter in the hair and Glossy Accents for her eyes.
Hope all of you have a happy and safe weekend.

Trick or Treat

Here is a real quick card to make. Just stamp the staying, cut it out and use a corner rounder on the corners.  Stamp the candy corn and cut those pieces out.  Currie used Copic markers to color and used Gelly Roll pens for the sparkle.  Vintage Photo Distress ink is used for the distress look.

Boogie Nights book

Currie wanted this card to look like a book with ghosts in it.
It would be real easy to add a couple of pages if you would wish.
The hinges she found at Big Lots and used Smooch gold to color the book plate.

Halloween Book

I got this from Currie a while back but I held it back so it was closer to Halloween to show you in hopes you will use the ideas for your own pictures-I just love this book she made !!
Currie cut the chipboard book out using the Sizzix die "Album cover and page".
Then she covered each page in Halloween colors of card stocks.
She found pictures of her girls - Maddy and Allie - and the dogs wearing costumes and cut them out.
Distress inks were used to distress the pictures.
For the front cover she used the 3 ghost stamp and used Shrink Plastic to make it smaller and turn it into a thicker piece of plastic.
All of the stamps used were Crackerbox Palace stamps

Trick or Treat Devil

I think I have already mentioned that Halloween is my favorite holiday.
Rena Askey is the artist that drew the devil and did the saying.  We have other Halloween kids that she drew that we made stamps from.  Her drawings have a little twist.
The cutout behind the image is from Spellbinders.
I colored the image and candy with Copic markers.
The devil is colored with more red as you expect for a devil.
The jar is stamped and cut out.  I used B000 & Boo Copic on the edges.
I stamped the candy corn and colored and cut them out.  When ever I cut anything out, I always go around the edge with a black marker to cover up the white paper on the edge.  I used Marvy black marker on most of them and I think I grabbed the Tombow marker on the one that has the edge that bled into the lacquer.
The words on the bottom is from card stock I had.

Happy Haunting House

Currie stamped the house in black on dark gray card stock.
Embossed was used on extra flying bats.
She cut out a bat using the Cricut cartridge Paper Dolls.
Covered the big bat in Flower Soft to add dimension.
There are ghosts in the window that she added with a white pen.
Stamped Happy Haunting, distress the edges and added it to the layers.
All stamps are Crackerbox Palace stamps.

Wicked Fun Angel

All of the stamps come from Crackebox Palace.
The orange card stock was embossed with Tim Holtz embossing folder and attached to the purple card.
The 2 right side corners were punched with Martha Stewart punch.
I embossed the spider webs on the left side with a Sizzix embossing folder.
The oval cutout, words and image is cut from Spellbinders.
There are pop dots behind the black card stock to bring it off of the back ground orange.
The glow in the dark spider, is just an embellishment I had.

Bats in the belfry

It's getting closer to Halloween so I will be sharing some ideas for my favorite holiday of the year.
Currie has made some great cards so I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Currie stamped Frankenstein on white card stock, colored him with Copic markers and cut him out.
Next she stamped the spider web and bats on dark blue card stock. 
She glued Frank on the blue card stock.
To mount it, she first sat the blue card stock on the lime green and then stamped the saying, just in case a mistake happened, but it didn't so she then glued down the blue cs.
She put wiggle eyes on the bats.  Won't any male like this card??

This is the inside of the card.

'Just a Note' book

Currie made this beautiful note book or journal or even a photo album.
The front, back and side is made out of chipboard.  She punched holes for the eyelets and used string to put it together.
Currie stamped the images and colored them with the Copic markers.

One surprise is the blue chip that the bird is stamped on is a counter top chip that they give away at the hardward stores.  It works really well with the knob because it already has a hole in it.
The knob on the book is from an old dresser that she stamped on.
Isn't this a great idea?? I love it !!
This is the whole side where she also punched holes for the eyelets to attach the edge to the front and back.  She also added embellishments on both ends to finish the side.
The pages are attached with paper brads.  They blend in on the edge of the book, but if you look you can see the brads.  This has been a real hit in the store.

Circle Flowers in a frame

Well, Currie did it again!   Made art work for the wall.
She took it all apart and junked the glass. Then painted the frame cream (same paint as she painted her porch). She used small chipboard pieces and painted them with Shimmers.  Next cut small cardstock pieces to fit over the chipboard circles.  She stamped the flower images on the circles and then colored them with Copic markers and distressed the edges and WOW what a great piece of art for the wall!

Gossiping Ladies

Remember the ladies bridge clubs? That was quite a network.
Currie stamped the image with VersaMark and used embossing powder.
She colored it with Copic Markers, distressed the edges around the saying.
The embossed dots were done with the Cuttlebug.
Doesn't this make a great friend card?
