Reindeer Sketch

So, I wanted to do a card with my sketch pens from Silhouette and chose this sketch from the Silhouette store that I had gotten for free. (Side note if you don't have a Silhouette, they have a free pattern every Tuesday in their online store).  I loaded a piece of kraft cardstock in my Silhouette and used the sketch feature.  Took less than 30 seconds and I love how crisp it turned out.  I then masked off the sides with masking tape and distressed the inside.  I then stamped the greeting from my Inkadinkado 'Christmas Characters' stamp set.  Then I embossed it in white.  I am a moron.  I hadn't let the distress ink dry first.  It looked ok, but not really so I stamped on a piece of scrap, black, cardstock, embossed it and cut it out with some decorative scissors.  I put it on with a dimensional sticker.  I found some embellishments at the Dollar Tree a few weeks ago and used one for his nose as well as some baker's twine, also from the Dollar Tree.  Overall, very pleased with this one.

Trick or Treat

Love this card if I do say so myself.  This is one of my favorite stamp sets, too. The Stamps are from Inkadinkado 'All Hallows Eve'.  I stamped the web and spider onto some Colorbok 'Boardwalk' paper and embossed it with some plain, black embossing powder.  I layered it onto a small mat from the 'old world' mat stack from Premium stacks and used the excess as the bar.  I just swiped the edges of the papers with some black marker so there would be no white edges.  The sentiment was cut from the same mat stack on my silhouette, edges distressed and stamped with the sentiment from the same stamp set then embossed as well.  The spider head and three dots were from th DCWV gem stickers pack.

5 cent Potions

I love everything about this with the exception of the ink I used for the stamping. I don't have any 'Wink of Stella', yet so I used a cheap glitter glue pen.  The ink I used was Studio G.  The ink may have been great and maybe I didn't let it dry all the way, but it smeared and smudged both when I distressed the edges of the potions tag and when I colored and glittered the main stamped image.  Annoying, but I will know better next time.  The stamp is from the Friendship Jar and Friendship Jar Fall Fillers by Papertrey Ink.  The papers were free digipapers from Scrap.DOT.  I distressed the edges with my favorite Distress Ink, Archival Photo and I colored in the image with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  The eyeballs were from a bag of eyes from the dollar store.
