Spooky Lavinia card

Two weeks ago I attended a workshop @ In ‘t woefke. The purpose was to create fairylike cards using Lavinia stamps, but I felt like creating a spooky card too:


All stamps are by Lavinia, except for the sentiment, which is Stampendous.

I only had used this card size (100 x210 mm) a handful of times before, but I actually really like it, so I’m pretty sure I will use it more often in the future.

This is my entry for the following challenges:




Bubble, bubble, toil and trouble

Haunted Design House offered us an interesting recipe with the following 5 ingredients: black, purple, green, metal and flourish.

Here’s what I brewed in my cauldron:



I mounted a green bubble background ATC on a black and purple card featuring clear embossed flourishes. My metal ingredient consists of a silver heat embossed pentagram. Sorry for the bad scan, in real life the green ‘s got a bit more punch and the pink is actually neon pink.

Stamps used

  • Witch:  Gaïa
  • Cauldron & mouse: Cherry Pie
  • Bats: Stampers Anonymous
  • Pentagram: Make your mark
  • Bubble sentiment: Stampendous

Inspired by a song… a rather creepy one

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a creepy card! Soon you’ll start thinking that I’ve been kidnapped and someone else has taken over my blog!

Well, it’s still me posting, and here’s the proof:

This card was inspired by the song ‘Witches Brew’ by a Dutch band called Omnia. It’s a tribute to Shakespeare of course. I couldn’t find an official video, but if you would like to listen, here’s a slideshow video made by a fan:


I’d like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Halloween card

Are you also counting down the days to Halloween? I’m certainly enjoying creating creepy ATCs and cards!

Here’s a quick card I made for the following challenges:

I used a circular die cut as a mask and sponged the moon and the nightsky with Distress inks. I used Tim Holtz masks to sponge the witch and the cat. I stamped the Tim Holtz’ bats and Halloween sentiment and added a few dots with a white gel pen.

More Halloween ATCs

I’m still enjoying playing with Halloween stamps and colours. The past few weeks I’ve been creating a series of Twinkling H2Os Halloween ATCs. I created two more this weekend.  I painted the backgrounds using Twinkling H2Os and heat embossed the images.

I’d like to enter them to the following challenges:

Here’s another view of them (it’s hard to capture their bling and their real colours)
