I used the

Happy Halloween

Good morning everone!  Today I'm sharing a Halloween card using new stamps from Paperie Ink.

Today I'm using the new Oh Bats  and My Boo stamp sets.  I cut a piece of bristol card 4.25" x 5.5" and applied distress oxide inks.  I then spattered the bristol with water and thinned acrylic paints.  I stamped the images on Neenah cardstock, colored them with copics, and fussy-cut them.  I used a black glaze pen on the critters' eyes.  I used liquid glue to adhere some of the images and I popped some of them up with foam tape to give some dimension to my card.  


Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have an amazing week!

Hugs, Anita 

The Greeting Farm - September Previews Day 4

Hello and welcome to Day 4 of The Greeting Farm previews of the September release!  Today I'm sharing a card that features several new digi releases!


I used images from the Halloween Nite, HalloSent, and Trick or Treat 4 digis to create my Halloween card.  I created the scene and printed it on Neenah cardstock.  I masked all the images and used Distress Oxide Inks to create the inky background.  I colored all the images with copics and applied the diecut rectangle to a top-folding card.

Please stop by tomorrow for our blog hop!  Meanwhile, stop by The Greeting Farm Blog to see what the rest of the team created with the new digis.

Ruff Night

Good morning friends!  Today I'm sharing a quick and easy Halloween card using some cute images from Paperie Ink.


The sweet trick-or-treating dog, candies, and sentiment are from the new Happy Haunting 
stamp set.  The string of lights is from the Happy Holi-yay stamp set.  My card measures 4.25 x 5.5 and I used an ink-blending brush to apply Wilted Violet Distress Oxide Ink to the front of the card.  I spattered both white and black acrylic paints over the inky area.  I stamped the puppy on bristol card and colored it using my Karin Brushmarkers.  I fussy-cut the puppy and used a black glaze pen on his eye and nose.  I stamped the candies and lights on Neenah cardstock, ran them through my ScanNCut, and colored them with copics.  I applied Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the candies and the lights.  I adhered the puppy, lights, candies, and heat-embossed sentiment with foam tape for dimension.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you have a fabulous day!

Hugs, Anita
