Spooky Labels for a Spooky Duel

Hi, friends, it’s Chark here today to share my October Digi Duel with Arlene. We got to play with the Hero Arts Spooky Labels digital stamps and it was fun! I love Halloween paper products…okay, I’m addicted to them…even though I never make enough projects to use all my paper and embellies and stamps. Luckily, these digi stamps don’t take up room in my craft stash!

Arlene made a festive Halloween card here with the stamp that says October 31. It even comes with its own spider web. Arlene went for fun and colorful and she nailed it…I know some nieces and nephews who would love this one!

I went more for spooky and vintage, using the Trick-or-Treat sentiment. I used black, silver and white to make this spooky. The paper is silver shimmer paper and the bat has some silver foil to make it shine. You can see more shininess in the close-up.

Happy Halloween

Hi Stampers!

Ilina’s here today with a simple Halloween card to just say Happy Halloween. I hope you had great weekend and have a safe Halloween. For my card I used the Boo stamp and cut set and stamped and cut bunch of little ghosts using the Hero Arts Ombre Neon ink pads. Then for my card base I used black card stock, because I really wanted the ghosts to pop up and I think I accomplished my mission. I love how the neon images look on black background. On the side I added a strip of patterned paper from Doodlebug Boos and Brews 6×6 pad. Hope you like it and you are inspired to create something today!

Boo Stamp & Cut for Parties

Hi, friends, it’s Chark here today to show my little gift bag idea using the Boo Stamp & Cut set. I love the Stamp & Cut sets that come with a few stamps and the corresponding dies…so convenient.

img_2348

I used the larger ghost die with vellum and then the small one with orange glitter paper. After I stamped the mini ghosts on the black cardstock, I added some of the face stamps. Fun! Some of the ghost stamps are used with first generation stamping, then some with second and third generation stamping, so I’d get a variety of looks for the ghosts.

Here’s a little hint—I used the White Unicorn Ink, which is a fabulous white ink, but it does take longer to dry, so don’t smear yours like I did. The little guy at the bottom looks like he has a headache, doncha think? 🙂 Here’s a close-up of the non-smeared ghosties.

If you have the Boo Stamp & Cut, I’d love to see what you’ve done with it. If you don’t have it and want it, it’s only $10.20 in the store right now…look at all these cute face stamps you get with it.

And if you like the idea of a smaller stamp set with matching dies all in one set, you can get your own at the store, including this Antlers Stamp & Cut and this Merry Stamp & Cut, each costs $14.95. But, if you have a cart of $25 or more, you can use my super special code CHARK15 to get 15% off your cart!

 

Stamp & Cut sets are just one way to get stamps and matching dies together, we also carry the larger stamp sets paired with their matching dies. These cost a little more because they contain more and bigger stamps and dies.

Don’t forget to enter our October Monthly Challenge—Layer It! You could win $25 to the store.

That’s all for me today, have a great Monday!

Witch Feet Tags with Hero Arts

Aloha friends!  I’m a huge fan of Halloween because it kick starts all the holidays for the rest of the year in our household.  I love the sweet costumes and fun decorations…the scary part I can do without!

I’ve been playing around with the Hero Arts Witch Feet Stamp and Cuts and decided to make some fun tags perfect for this month’s challenge!

HAA2ZWitchFeetTags2

To create the tags I folded up some cardstock and lined the matching die slightly over the fold on the cardstock.  Once die cut I stamped the image and colored.  The die is so detailed and fun!  I added some twine and now I have sweet little witch feet tags to add to hand sanitizers to pass out in the office during Halloween!

On the inside I wrote out the sentiment and added a little spider web from the set for fun.

Hope your Day is a Hoot!

Hi there! It’s Kathy here again stopping in to show you this quirky card I made for the monthly challenge. The challenge is to use two Hero Arts products. This Curious Owl is one of my favorite stamps. I love owl stamps! And you already know how much I love pumpkins for Fall cards.

I wanted to use a lot of patterned paper with Halloween colors for this card. I think I accomplished my goal! 🙂  I also wanted to make it a fun card so I cut out the witch’s hat from another Hero Arts set and added to the Hero Arts Curious Owl stamp. I love how his eyes are looking up at the witch’s hat.

After I stamped, colored and cut out the owl, I adhered the witch’s hat to him. I then used a border punch to cut out the fence, a die to cut the balloon and I also cut several different pieces of patterned paper. I also stamped, colored and cut out the pumpkin. This Hero Arts Thankful for You set is a must have! I used Copic markers to color the orange on the owl and the pumpkin. I then stamped the greeting on the balloon.

Once I had all my pieces, I assembled the card. I also add some white twine to the balloon and colored the owl’s eyes with a white gel pen.

I hope you’ll play along with the challenge. You can find more information about it by clicking on the link in the right side bar. And don’t forget, if you’d like to order anything from the store, use the coupon code Kathy15 to receive a 15% off discount.
