Simon Says: Halloween

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

This week the challenge is as it's the 

This week we are showcasing Memory Box Products. You don't have to use them to join in, but if you have them we would love to see them used.

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

We are welcoming the lovely and super talented Nikki Acton into the Designer Spotlight! You need to pop over and have a look around her blog if you haven't already, its awesome! :-)

I made a not so spooky card using a  Tim Holtz's Crazy Dog and Crazy Things Stamp and Die Set . The little bats are from a Memory Box die similar to the ones in this Halloween Stitched Set.

I love the papers in the Tim Holtz Materialize Paper Pack, the colors are perfect for Halloween/Autumn. I used a Crackle Stencil and Black Soot ink to create a spiders web and used a spider from a Gothic Remnant Rub.  I colored the very vicious looking dog with Hickory Smoke Distress Ink and added some 'blood' with Barn Door Ink.
The spooky tree was cut on a Silhouette Cameo, one of the most handy tools to have! ;-)

I used a paper distressed to distress all of the edges,  and finished the inside :-)

House Mouse 'Mr and Meeces'

Hi all :-) I am here to share a card made for the House Mouse and Friends Challenge which is starting today. This time it's the lovely Kate's turn to host and she chose the theme 

Branch Out
ie: used branches on your project, or you can always choose the anything goes option. The main thing is to have fun and join in!

A dear friend of mine is marrying her sweetheart in a couple of weeks and I have made this card for them, I hope she doesn't see this ;-)

I used a super cute 'Mr and Meeces' image, coloured with copics and mounted onto gold card. I recently bought a Minc Machine (you need one of these ;-)) and a pack of  5th Avenue papers to foil. This lovely branch design was in the pack and I thought it would be perfect for the card and also for the challenge! 

I used a strip of vellum, stamped with gold text, layered over a panel of gold cardstock for the side and wrapped some gold string around it. 

I finished the inside too to make it extra special :-)

Thanks for looking!
