"Eat, Drink & Be Scary!"


What’s Halloween without a cool vampire I ask, love his sophistication, you know…sipping “blood” out of a crystal wine glass!  This is a free image from Dobrosav BOB Zivkovic.  Got him all shadded and sparkled.  This was a colored image but the color wasn’t very vibrant when I printed it out, so added some depth with my Copic markers.  The fun sentiment is a freebie digi and I thought it worked perfectly with our thirsty guest here, and yes…the spider makes another return.  Freaky!

The Skeleton Poem


This really cute guy is a stamp from Stampendous called Skeleton Poem, love this dapper guy.  Stamped him using black ink and then Sakura Clear Star glitter pen to trace his image.  Love how those “bones” stand out.  His hat has a “Glossy Accents” shine on it.  He is layered up on Halloween DP and a Spellbinders fence die cut was added for interest using black glitter paper.  You might notice that black glittered spider is still following me, this time he sits atop a bow of sparkly fibers.

"When Witches Go Riding & Black Cats Are Seen"...

This card is made of several digi images and a fun Halloween greeting that I made on the computer.  Love those Halloween fonts.  The colorful cats image is backed by that great greenish yellow moon with all the bats flying and is also a free digi.  Added the black glitter paper Boo die piece from Serendipity and layered that all onto Halloween DP from my stash and lots of Sakura Clear Star.  Very easy card.



This cute Pumpkin Pile image is by Laurie Furnell.  Added some Stickles and shading and then fussy cut and attached it to a Spellbinders lattice die cut and sprayed with a glitter spray.  Added the Spellbinders fence die using a glittery black cardstock and the Boo die from Serendipity.  That pesky black spider makes another return to my card…think he is following me!



This fun image by Laurie Furnell was too cute to pass up.  I added the “RIP” by hand plus a little shading and of course my Clear Star glitter pen.  I found this cute BOO die cut from Serendipity along with lots of fun stamps during their amazing sale a few weeks ago.  Can’t pass on free shipping and a sale!  Anyway, I cut the BOO from black glitter paper and also punched the spider from a Punch Bunch punch from the same black paper.


A Happy Halloween "Hoot"


I couldn’t pass this image up.  That owl perched on a limb in front of a big orange harvest moon with bats flying all around caught my eye.  Added a little shading, a big scary spider creeping toward the owl and a little sparkle via my Sakura Clear Star glitter pen and it was done.  Backing papers are all from my stash.

Frankie says "Trick or Treat"

I found this cute Halloween digi out in cyber land by Gloria West and knew one of my Grandson’s would get a tickle out of it. It was pre-colored so didn’t take much, a creepy spider all glittered up and my Sakura Clear Star pen to highlight.  The backing papers are from my Halloween stash.

Sending Love and Sympathy


My dear sister-in-law lost her battle with cancer, but through it all she kept her spirit, strength, sparkle and her wonderful smile.
I wanted to use a floral image, because she loved flowers and I didn’t want it to be without bling because she loved sparkle. 

So for this very special card I used a digi image and colored it up and added glitter to a few of the flower petals and to the leaves.  I created the sentiment on the computer.  There is a beautiful silver glitter paper that backs the focal layer and sparkles like crazy, just like she did.
I think she would have liked this card.
