Hello all!
I have a Halloween tag to share with you all today.
I have been creating a tag every month for this whole year.
This months tag is a bit spooky (well not really spooky!)

I used the Tim Holtz Haunted House die, and made the paper for the house and the windows. 
Then I added a quick metal band word to the bottom, 
stamped the background with some bat stamps,
and voila, a fun little halloween house tag. 

I'm linking up with Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2015

Witch Parking Only

Good morning bloggy friends!
I had one day off from work this week, and I got my crafty on!
Yep, Two days ago I shared this canvas
and today I have a fun Halloween Card to share with you using Just For Fun Stamps
I have to be honest with you, I'm not a huge Halloween fan. 
I love fall (not that we get much of it here in Arizona,)
but Halloween has never been a big deal to me. 

However for this fun card I used two stamps, the witch parking only sentiment stamp,
and the witch broom stamp.

Both of these stamps give a really clear and clean line, and stamp fabulously!

If you're looking for any Halloween stamps hop on over to Just For Fun Stamps, they have a really really good selection of stamps, and they are a great quality (and a value for their money as well!)

Beachy canvas

This morning I got up early.
I wrote out a list of all the projects I wanted to work on.
This beachhead canvas was at the top of my list!
I've been watching YouTube tutorial videos for the last 5 days, 
and today I finally have the time to create! 

First and foremost I knew I wanted to use my Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays, and play along with the current challenge found here and this graphic:

So here's what I created!
Most all the background is Lindys sprays. I used:   pop rock purplemerry go round greenraspberry lemonadetime travel teal,  also used magical powders freaky franken-lime and witch potion purple, which are both part of the haunted Halloween pigment powder set. 

I started with layering on sprays and powders to make the background. 
I sprayed, and heat set, and sprayed and heat set until I had a background I loved!

I then layered some stencils and using distress inks added a bit more color and texture. 
Next I painted the chipboard pieces with gesso, and then sprayed them with the Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays and the magical powders. 
You can see I didn't use some of the pieces here, there are some great chipboard pieces in the set! 
Finally I started assembling the embellishments and picture on the canvas. 
Don't you just love that lighthouse??
I layered some dictionary paper, twine, an old doily, buttons and pearls to complete the photo area. 
I could use these sand dollars on hundreds of projects!  And all colored up with golden sleigh bells from the jingle bells spray set!
I love how I mixed and matched sprays from a number of different sets and they all look amazing together! 

Thanks for stopping by today.

Jff skeleton

Good morning!
My month of craziness has hopefully come to an end. 
To celebrate the coming of Halloween, I've created this fun skull tag! 
This was the beginning version, and it was finished about a week ago.
Then as I sat and looked at it more and more I thought that it needed something more.
So I added the bat stamps to the background. 
I think they give a finished look, and are that much more "Spooky"
