Frighteningly Adorable Halloween

Posted on

It’s that time of year again. These next few weeks are leading up to the most wonderful time of the year…Halloween! And I have been crack-a-lackin to get my cards done early this year.

Most of the cards that I made this year featured digital images from Pink Cat Studios. Some of the images were only available in a package purchase that I made a few years ago but, Melissa has a ton of cute digis for sale and it is still worth a look at her site.

The first two cards feature Action Wobbles by Hampton Arts. Action Wobbles have a heavy duty sticker on the top and the bottom with a spring sandwiched in the middle. In the video below you can see how well these work. They really create a fun, interactive feature in your cards.

I have made a card almost identical to this one in the past. The werewolf in the foreground is a digital stamp from Whimsie Doodles. This one happens to be a freebie but, there are a lot more for sale as well. The haunted house is a stamp and the pathway is just doodled by hand. There is a Action Wobble underneath this guy as well.

This is a Stampin Up stamp called Haunted Forest. Sadly, I don’t think it is available any longer. I colored it with Copic Markers and added some glitter stars just for fun.

This is another Pink Cat Studios cutie. I used an embossing folder to texturize the card and several other folders to add texture the the mounting paper that this little vampire is adhered to. If you look closely you will see that I cut out the night sky in such a way that the bat’s wings seem to be flying off of the page. The bat’s wings are also heavily coated in Ranger’s Glossy Accents which give them a 3 dimensional effect.

I kept these photos grouped together so that you could see the way I was able to alter the digital image to make it larger or smaller depending on what I wanted to do with it. And also so that you can see that the same image can be used but, made to quite different based on the other elements used along with it.

Below you can see that the  image  on the right is bigger than the one on the left. The ability to resize an image is one of the advantages of using digital image stamps. The other is advantage is that you can create a mirror image if for some reason you want the stamped character facing another direction. And of course the fact that your stored images only take up disc space and not desk space is nice too.
