Hi

Hi, Thanks for dropping by.

My name is Eileen but to friends in the card making world I'm known as 'ikki'. (which is pronounced I-KEY) From where or how this came about I'm not sure - it just got shorten from my original craft name of Ikemo by various friends along my crafting way! I started crafting whilst recouperating from an accident, and from my first attempts with peeloffs and paint - I was hooked! Now my passion is my BUG! and now BEADING!

In the Cupboard you will find ideas, news, tips and techniques to help you get more from this fab little machine. So come in - join the fun and Cuttle with me!

More Halloween.....Can't stop

I've been playing with my Halloween stamps again and although it's a dark, grey, wet morning, I feel relaxed and happy having enjoyed being creative with these creatable stamps. 

This is the stamp set I used

I took the spooky house and with a clear embossing pad stamped the image onto my charcoal glimmer card, then added black embossing powder and heated.
  The windows and cobweb are highlighted with a glitter pen - spooky hey!

 I created a tag to make a ledge for the large
scary cat to stand on.
 He seems to be saying something like "watch out - something's about!"
  
My finished spooky card - bats and all!

Thanks for all your lovely comments yesterday, and a warm halloween welcome to those of you who have joined the Cupboard followers.  Hope you all enjoyed visiting the EIDT blog and my Design Teamies.  Wonder where that candy this!?!?!?  Did you find it?  If not, it's still lurking out there, may be under a toadstool!  Why not pop over there -  today you'll find even more Halloween inspiration. 

On my WOYWW desk tomorrow I'll have another project to show you.
Have a great ghouly day!

I like the use of the grey glitter card to set the night time scene. Very nice card.

Alexandra said...

This is the only Halloween stamp set I have, I couldn't resist that wee cat, it's not so scary, I love it. I'm ashamed to say it's another one I've bought and have yet to use. It looks lovely just as an embossed black outline & highlighted in places with the silvery, sparkly glitter pen. tfs
