The Grim Creeper Returns…Again!

Happy Halloween, everybody! I won’t be getting any little ghouls or goblins ready for trick or treating tonight, but I wanted to share some fun (and delightfully creepy) cards with you!

This is the fourth time we’ve done a Grim Creeper event. If you want to check out the other hops we’ve done, click HERE.

I have two cards today. Both were made with free retro photos that I found online. I just picked a couple for my cards, and paired each photo with a creepy sentiment. I love that they pay tribute to shows like “Alfred Hitchcock Presents” and “The Twilight Zone”.

Here’s card #1:

  


Here’s card #2:


And here’s a closer look at the creepy twist:


I changed the word on the seed packets from “Beets” to “Betty,” and added a face from another retro photo to the packet.

 My friend Sparkle also has a Grim Creeper card to share, so pop by her blog to check it out!

Thanks for stopping by!

Drunken Stampers #105: Fifty Shades of Grey

Happy Saturday, crafty friends! It’s my team’s turn again to post cards at the Drunken Stampers blog, and I’m sharing my card inspired by:
I may be one of the few ladies who hasn’t read this series of books (and I plan to keep it that way…LOL), but I was inspired to create a card with just black, white, and grey!

I used this fabulous “Lana” stamp by Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps! She’s colored in many shades of black and cool grey (I used Copic markers). To create some extra details, I added Stickles to her dress and Liquid Applique’ to her stole. 

Other supplies: Spellbinders Labels 25, Oval dies, glitter tape (American Crafts), foam tape, mini brads, paper piercer, Copic multiliner, patterned paper (will update with info when I remember), Brilliance Graphite Black ink, silver pigment ink.

To play along with us, all you need to do is link your project on the Drunken Stampers blog using the Linky Tool, and add your blog link, gallery link, etc.

Please add the link directly to your project (any generic blog links will be deleted from the list) and leave us a comment! (if Linky Tools isn’t working or just misbehavin’, just leave a comment with the link to your card) You have until  Friday, November 16 at 11:59 PST to post your link for this challenge!

You can check out what the other members of Team Mojito (and maybe some members of Team Flirtini) have created for this challenge by visiting the Drunken Stampers blog!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend! I’m going to see the new James Bond movie, “Skyfall,” with my husband…and maybe get some coloring and crafting done! 
I’ll be back tomorrow with a new Christmas Card Challenge…thanks so much for stopping by!
