Day 16 OF 31 days of Halloween

 I decided to make a banner. This is a easy banner to make. Frist off I got the banner from a store. Mine I picked up at Target in the dollar area.
Then I had a plan in mind. I wanted to use the small skeleton on the panels of the banner. When I opened up the banner I saw that there was 3 different sizes of panels. That is when I saw my small skeleton would not fit on all the panels. So I grabbed my flying skull to use on my smaller panels.   


So I stamped the small skeleton 4 times on white card stock. Cut out. Then I glued on panel.
Then I skipped a panel.
I didn't take a photo of the blank panel.

Next I stamped flying skull 3 times on white cardstock and cut out. Then I glued on panel
All done.
Hang where you want.
Come check out what my other DT from  Lost Coast/Carmen's Veranda have made so far. Also come join the fun over at the Portal and have a chance to win some stamps of your own?

Day 6 of 31 days of Halloween hop Frank's memories

Day 6 of Halloween blog hop. Today you get Cathy. That's me.
I made this card to share with you all today. I call it Frank's memories. I started out with a black card base. Next I stamped Gothic ATC text    on different spots on the card with white ink. Then I grabbed a Tim Holtz Halloween stencil (skull crossbones is the one I used) . Again I used white ink and added it through the stencil. I then took a evidence tag I got and filled it out added water to it crinkled it up. Dried it with a heat gun. Distressed the edges added brown ink to them.  Got a poison label and inked the edges of that with brown ink. Set all aside, I stamped Frank on copic friendly paper and colored him in with copic markers. Cut him out and edged with black marker so you don't see white around the edge.
Now I assemble the card. Added the poison label to the card. I took the tag and added the charm and the string and added foam squares to the back to raise it up next I added Frank. Using foam squares on him also. Last I edged the card with white ink to tie it all together.
 The complete list of participants in the hop is shown on the sidebar.
Don't forget to leave us a little love so we know you dropped by.  We also have loads of chances to win Lost Coast dollars. Link up your projects to these fun challenges

Bubble border

Cathy here with a card for our Border event.

Frist off I want to thank our own DT Iona for this idea for a card. I stared off with some watercolor paper and some Nuance watercolor powers.
Next I stamped the bubble border on the paper twice. Then I started cutting them out. I left one main one as the stamp is and the second one I cut apart. Laying the main full one in the middle and then I picked different strips from the second on I cut up laying it on either side from the middle. I did this till I got a full card how I like it.
Last but not least I stamped the Skeleton on black paper and used white embossing power. Cut around the image and used foam squares to rise it up.  
Ta-Da my card is done. I say grab your border stamps and try them a new way. Mine I didn't even use as a border.

True Friends

This month over at the Portal the theme is Numbers. Here is one tag I made for this challenge.

This is how I made this tag. I stamped thick and thin men on my tag. Next I took a distress inkpad and smooched it on the craft mat and picked up the color and painted the background. Dripped the leftovers of ink on the top of tag. After that was dry I stamped the numbers border on it. I had some rub-ons on my table and guess what they had numbers on them. So I added them. I colored the men with copic markers. Added some word stickers and twine on top and we are done.
Please come to the Portal and join the Numbers Challenge this month.

Winterish Card

I made this card awhile ago. I used Oxide inks to make the background. I stamped Mistletoe Goth from Lost Coast.
As I said I did make this card awhile ago. Had it mounted on the card and it sat there. I always felt it was missing something. Then one day I said color the berries red and add glossy accents to them. So I did.
