31 Nights of Halloween - Night 18 Special Guest Mindy Eggen


Welcome back everyone! I'm participating in the 31 Night of Halloween with Whimsy Stamps again! They have some fabulous Halloween images that you can use for you cards and projects. Today's card is going to be featuring Dracula Bite Stamp set and die by Deb Davis. 

This card is quick and simple yet sure to bring a smile to your face!
I thought the sentiment was fang-tastic!

I'm start out by stamping my Dracula image onto Neenah white cardstock with copic friendly ink and coloring with my copics markers. I then use the coordinating die to cut out around the image.
I love the look of the images when they are cut out from dies! It leaves such a nice border.


Next, I'm going to stamp my sentiment onto my circle I cut from patterned paper and adhere that to my scallop circle I cut from black cardstock. I think this sentiment matches perfectly with the expression on Dracula's face! 


Dracula is adhered with some foam squares to give the card a little dimension.

This coordinating die also has these really cute bats on there that I placed around my card and added some glossy accents to. It looks so cool with them being shiny! The finishing touch is to add some black nuvo drops around the card. 


Copics used
Skin - E00-04-11-21-01
Shirt - R59-56-46, W2-1-0
Pants/Hair - W8-6-5-4


Be sure to check back here tomorrow night for MORE Whimsy Stamps Halloween FUN!
I also have a video available that you can watch on my blog or my youtube channel HERE.





Special Guest - Dina Kowal

Dina Kowal here with another guest spot for you today.  Before I get to my post I want to make sure that you all know about the Falliday Fest going on over at Splitcoast Stampers.  If not, head on over there and enter the challenges because Whimsy Stamps is one of the sponsors for prizes at the end of the fest.  And I'm sure you don't want to miss out on possible Whimsy Prizes do you?!

Okay so for today's tutorial I have a Panel Pull-Out Card - the base is a no-fold quarter sheet of cardstock, and the front panel folds in and out accordion style. Simple and fun!



The design of the card gives you 3 'front' panels to decorate - for my card front I've used the Puppy in Present stamp by Lee Holland, it might be fun to have some die cuts or other small birthday images peeking out from the other panels as well! I kept it simple here and just hid a sentiment on the third panel with some room for a handwritten greeting. 



The sentiment is from a really fun clear set from Whimsy - I love small greetings and this set is just full of practical ones.


Those smaller card panels are a great way to use up scraps too - that's one of my goals with these tutorials and challenges. 

Want to try the card yourself? Come over to the Falliday Fest Challenge Forum for all the details!


Thanks for stopping by!

31 Nights of Halloween - Night 17

Hello there! 

Welcome back for the 17th night of Halloween Blog Celebration! 


 My name is Ellenor and I´m new in the Whimsy Stamps creative team. It´s an honour to be part of such  a fantastic talented team! 

I have used the gorgeous Hazel for my halloween card, designer Sylvia Zet, I love her designs.
I usually dont add any sentiments on my cards, I think they are more versatile without.






I have used both Copics and Spectrum Noir to colour Hazel.



This little dragon must be the cutest dragon, ever! Or what do you think?

Thank you so much for stopping by us tonight, and dont forget to get back tomorrow again, for even more Halloween fun.

Take care.

Aren't they just the cutest? I had so much fun coloring these in! Let's look at the tutorial, I added in some tips as to how I choose colors for copic coloring too...


I hope you enjoyed seeing how they came together.  Now let's look at their cute little faces again up close...




Thanks so much for joining me here tonight, I can't wait to be back very soon (in fact later this week!), don't forget to stop by every evening for more spooky inspiration and great prizes throughout the month!
