Since the stores have Halloween witches and skulls right beside Santa and Christmas trees, why should I not get in on the band wagon. Personally I think it's stupid and money hungry to put Christmas stuff up before Rembrance Day. I grew up not seeing anything Christmas until after November 11th but now it seems to get earlier and earlier which sucks. So what have I done? I am showing you a Halloween card and a Christmas card.
Doggie Stamp, witches hat, pumpkin, star and saying stamp. Black dye ink, gold dye ink, gold glitter embossing powder, gambow markers, pastels, die cut, sizzex machine.
Fusion Challenge-sketch and a photo
Simon Says- Halloween
The Male Room- Halloween
Neighbours, across our street, have been so nice bringing bones for our Wallace so I made a Halloween thank you card for them and used the dog image since they have a black lab. I tried to combine the fusion challenge by using the sketch but also having the pumpkin, black background and stars which is from their photo. I took orange chalk a rubbed the color, using cotton swabs around the doggy. I stamped the pumpkin and witches hat and fussy cut them out. I coloured the pumpkin in gamsol pencils and the hat, |I used tombow markers. I placed the doggie on the black background and added the hat on top of her head. I used pop up dots to bring the pumpkin out. I stamped the stars and saying in gold and embossed it with this antique sparkle gold powder. I have to start sending out some Halloween cards.
Angel and saying stamp, Black embossing dye ink, sparkle black embossing powder, Star stickers, black marker, gems, different card stock. Tombow markers
CCAYR- Angels or Nativity
Color Throwdown- grey, lavender, black
HLS- Christmas- Twinkle
I love angels and am not sure why but I always find them beautiful and peaceful looking. Over at Christmas Crafts All Year Round, They have Angels or Nativity which is right up my alley. I love this Angel stamp I have and stamped her on white cardstock and embossed her in the black glitter embossing powder. I took the different papers and layered everything. I used pop up dots for the angel to look 3D. I stamped the saying in the same black and used the same black embossing powder for extra glitter. I added the stars that I coloured in black and the gems.
Are you sick of all the merchandise being placed out so early? Do you still dress up for Halloween, like I do, to hand out candy? What is your favourite Christmas image? Angels, Trees, Santa, Snowmen, Newt Gingrich...sorry he would be more for Halloween.
