Art Impressions Matchbook Halloween

Watch the video tutorial here!

Hello Ai Fans!!!

Some exciting news…and some of you may already know….we have a brand new matchbook in the matchbook series! It is the MB Halloween Set (5446) and it’s available now and it is so adorable!!!

This little set includes the stamps and coordinating dies and it includes all of the spooky elements you will need to create a fun little matchbook. There is a spooky window, furniture with lots of webs, a black cat, ghosts, pumpkin and a spider! There is also a fun sentiment that says “Hairy Scary!” that will finish off any Halloween scene.

I will take you through the assembly of the matchbook and the envelope step-by-step with some easy to follow instructions and tips.

Just keep in mind that in order to create any of the Matchbooks, you will need the MB Template Die Set (5317) and in order to create the coordinating envelope you will need the MB Envelope Die Set (5318).

Here is a link to a couple of Matchbooks I had previously made using the MB Coffee Shop and the MB Kitchen!

Tim Holtz Ghost Town Mixed Media Card – Coloring w/ Mica Sprays

Watch the video tutorial here!

Hello and Welcome!

In today’s video and card we will be creating a spooky mixed media Halloween scene! We will be using some brand new Halloween dies from the Tim Holtz collection! These will include the Ghost Town #2, Gate Keeper, and Regions Beyond Sets.

To do our coloring we will be using the fantastic Halloween Distress Mica Stains from Tim! These sprays have a beautiful mica shimmer which we will use to spray our background, color our haunted house, grave stones, and add dimension to the creepy gate!

To add even more creepiness and an aged effect to our gate we will add some Halloween Crypt Grit-Paste….so cool!!!! This paste would be great with a stencil as well.

We will add a fun metal Tim Holtz Word Band and add some Tim Holtz Distress Crayon in black to give it a more spooky look! And finally, we will add some twine and a few keys to secure the gate to our graveyard….sooooo scary!!!!

Art Impressions “Batty” Halloween Spinner Card

Hello Ai Fans!!!

Todays card and video are inspired by the current Art Impressions Blog Challenge which is called “Going Batty”! I thought it would be fun to create a spinner card using the cute little bat from the Halloween Critters Set (5182) and the pumpkin border from the Pumpkin Flip Set (5352).

I will show you how easy it is to create a super fun interactive spinner card. This just requires a bit of clear thread and our bat will look like it is flying on its own! Just wind it up….and let it fly!!!

I really love to look at my stamp sets in a different way so that I can use them in multiple ways. So for this card we will trim away the little critters from inside the pumpkins and just use the pumpkin border on its own.

To set the scene for our card we will use some Distress Oxide Inks and then some beautiful Mica Spray for added shimmer! We will also add some trees and branches in the background with two different stamp sets from the Bible Journaling Sets – Bible Foliage (5073) and He Leads Me (5169).

If you love these little halloween critters as much as I do…you may want to check out my Mini Slimline Halloween Card w/ Glimmer Paste and my Halloween Critters Tag Card!
