Spooky sweet!

Well, welcome back for another supah fun challenge here at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!!! We are LOVING your submissions and you are rockin' these challenges!! It's awesome to see so many of you creating with KKS!!! Keep them coming!
This week our hostess is JENNY!! And her challenge is Spooky Sweet!! So create a card, scrapbook page or altered item with a Kraftin' Kimmie stamp that features Halloween or something spooky!! Have some krafty fun and join us this week because we'd LOVE to see your KKS designs. We hope you can play along for your chance to WIN some Kraftin' Kimmie rubbah!!! ...

My image today is by Cheryl Alger from her Halloween Lulu set, I mean, cute and spooky just screams Cheryl Alger right?

I have tried to do an ombre look with the glitter background, not bad for a first try. I sprinkled black glitter across the bottom of some wide sticky tape then a pale orange across the top, trying to lighten it up as I sprinkled towards the center, then a dark orange in the middle. A bright orange bow, creepy kitty and a Halloween Trinket finishes it off.

Amanda, I LOVE THIS CARD!!!! She is so cute and I think you nailed your ambray effect with that black and orange glitter. Wow, it just looks fantastic with your paper and that bright orange bow. Love the rose in the middle of it as well.
Hope you are having a great weekend. I am finally off for 2 days and I am so hoping to get a chance to make a few cards. :O) Hugs, Lisa

Dana said...

Tracy said...

Oh good grief! I officially dub you the glitter queen. You nailed the owner effect! Love this!!! Hugs!

Sparkle-rific!!!!!!!!
My girls would so love to to craft w/ you because glitter is sooooo messy & I'm a bit of a freak about it & we craft over the sink or in a cookie sheet!!! Lol
I guess I need to loosen up a bit, huh..!?!
But enough about me... Your card is fantabulous --!! I adore the seam binding flower combo !!! That might be a (non-paper) embellie that I can embrace!!
So well done, girlfriend!!! Xo

Simply amazing!
I love your Halloween card, though she's definitely a cutie and not a spooky witch!
Love the colours and the sparkle.

Big hugs

And another image I so need to buy after seeing what you've done to make her shine. LOVE the sparkle now if you could just please tell me what is sticky paper & what kind of glitter do you put on it. This little Spook is the sweetest one I have ever seen. Beautifully colored & the trinket fits perfectly. Do you have a punch to punch each of those out?
Just love the work you put into your creations. they are wonderful...
