2021 Happy Halloween!!

 Six of my favorite Halloween cards!

This is a digital stamp at CC Designs from Roberto's digital stamp line which has been discontinued. I've colored the image with Copic markers. All other products are from my hoarded stash.
All the papers, with the exception of the black doily, are from Graphic 45 Midnight Tales paper pad. I inked all the white edges of the stickers and paper with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Black Soot. I've used Marci from the La-La Land Crafts September 2016 kit and she is now available as a digital stamp. I've colored her with Copic markers. The remaining supplies used are from my stash.

I've used a discontinued Stampin' Up stamp set called Home is Where the Haunt is. Interesting story on how I obtained that if you don't mind me carrying on. I have a niece who went to Goodwill and purchased a pallet. When she went through the pallet, she found something like 20 Stampin' Up stamp sets! Some of them were still unmounted and never used! Coincidentally, it was my birthday so she brought them over to me. I thought I hit jackpot! Along with this stamp set, there were about four more I actually did want but could only find them on E-bay and I don't do E-bay. The rest, I passed along to a different niece who also crafts. Awesome, right? I created the background sky after watching a YouTube video by Taffleberry Lane for Lawn Fawn. I think. I'm not 100% positive it's for Lawn Fawn but I watched a couple of videos and she used Lawn Fawn sets and her videos are named like that so I thought she was a designer for them. Anyway, getting off topic. I also used a die cut from La-La Land Crafts October 2020 kit. It has trees but I only wanted the fence and curve of the landscape so I cut off the trees. After creating the night sky, I stamped a couple of trees and the witch in the sky. I then added the die cut. I stamped a fence directly onto the die cut. I wet embossed the moon with Honey embossing powder and stopped short of having it go smooth because I wanted the rough look because the moon is not smooth! LoL I colored in the windows on the house in yellow for lights and fussy cut the house. I had a mishap with the chimney so I decided to cut that off along with some wrought iron trimming on top. I did not think I could fussy cut around the wrought iron trimming so that was going to go anyway. I then popped it up with foam tape. I used a white gel pen to dot stars onto the night sky and got a little carried away! Then I went to town edging the entire thing with Tim Holtz distress ink in Black Soot. I love to do that anyway but I went heavy to create more shadows around the edges. For the sky, I used Tim Holtz oxide inks in Wild Honey, Twisted Citron and Black Soot. I also used Tim Holtz distress inks in Barn Door, Faded Jeans and Dusty Concord. I misted the paper with a fine mist and I am always in awe with the change! On the video I watched, she used all oxide inks in different colors and did the same but I don't have many oxide inks and did not have all the colors she had. I improvised. After I colored the background and since I knew not all the inks were oxide, I ran the Black Soot over the entire sky to darken the colors and happy accident! It allowed for the entire sky to develop the water spots!

Sorry about the weird angle, but this is the only way I did not get a reflection from my phone. I have a massive problem with house spiders. I have two evergreens right next to the house in the front and they are a haven for spiders, ssooo... I have spiders galore in the house as well. I'm always swatting at things cause I think they are spiders and sometimes... it's just lint! LoL But I had a bad reaction to a spider bite a couple of years back and my doctor told me that the oral chemotherapy drug I take for my CML would make me more sensitive to bug bites so I don't want to get bitten again! But these here spiders are harmless! LoL I have this fantastic web die from Queen and Company but I think it has been discontinued because I could not find it on their website. It was a little bit of a nightmare as I didn't plan it out in advance. I was flying by the seat of my pants again! I put the die UNDER the window and so the sequins are stuck in the openings. Lesson learned! The BG cardstock is from Storytellers and I think they've probably closed their doors by now. I wet embossed some spiders randomly on the paper. The stamp is from Raisin Boat and they have also gone by the wayside. The sequins and beads are from the Queen and Company kit that included the web die. Pattern paper is from my stash and I inked the edges with Tim Holtz distress ink in Black Soot. I like to do that! I also really wanted to use this printed paper. I only had one 8X8 sheet left and I love the color and pattern so it was do or die! The spider ribbon is from Michael's. First time I have ever been able to make such a pretty bow! One of my sisters recently asked me to make a bow for her cause I'm crafty and so therefore talented according to my family. LoL I am not sure she believed me when I said I did not know how to tie a bow! I fussed with this one a good 15 minutes, at least, before I got it to look like this. I'm super happy by its appearance! Spider punches are from a discontinued Martha Stewart paper punch.
