Haunted Mansion

Last year I bought  two Martha Stewart  Halloween paper punches for 50% off in November. And this year I finally got around to using them.

This card features the Martha Stewart Iron Edge punch. I love the little bats on the posts of the fence. I also used some of my new distress inks to create  a spooky hill and twilight sky for my haunted mansion.

Rather than have the house seem abandoned I opted to color some lights in the windows.  When I was through it kind of reminded me of the Bates Motel. The sentiment is a rub on transfer that I have had for ages and ages.

I am entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Dies and/or Punches. Someday maybe I’ll get lucky and win the $50 gift card that is always the prize for their challenges. I could spend that real quick at Simon Say Stamp.

Happy Stamping,

Hero Arts White Out Challenge

This past Sunday I purchased Tim Holtz Distress Inks on sale ($2.99 each) at Michaels. I have seen these inks used in many cards but, I hadn’t had a chance to try them out myself, before this. They were so much fun to play around with! My favorite part is spritzing the colors with water and watching the way the change to a softer look. I added a snowflake look with the tip of a wet paint brush.
After layering my background I stamped the pine tree from Stampin Up A Lovely as a Tree in Versamark ink and then I embossed them with Stampendous Silver powder.

I am entering this card into A Blog Named Hero’s White Out Challenge for a chance to win a $25 gift card to Simon Says Stamp. There are still 2 days left to play along.

Happy Stamping,

Mo
