Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #118

Hi Everyone,

Its challenge time at Addicted to Stamps and More the theme is HOLIDAY for the next two weeks!

I could not resist and choose Halloween - my favorite holiday and its coming up real soon, eeeeek......!


Real scary this card, isn't it? I got his cool stamp at the Stamp Expo here in New Jersey in September - I had a lot of fun there, as you can imagine....That fabulous stamp is from Rubbernecker
I colored it with Copics and fuzzy cut it. The grey panel I embossed with a Tim Holtz embossing folder and sponged it. "Fitted" it into the monster. Lastly i did not like a totally white background, so I sponged around with lime green ink. Lastly I added glossy accents to the fingernails and teeth. Scary, huh....




Now,

our sponsor for the challenge is:

I hope you come and play with us at ATSM and leave some love on the DT girls blogs - after all they have some fabulous inspiration for you!

I am also playing with this card in The Male Room - Halloween
and with AAA cards - Halloween

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey.

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
