Halloween Haunted House

Halloween is just around the corner so i thought i would make a haunted house scene using La-La Land Crafts stamps and dies. Stamps used are Cauldron Witch Marci Scarecrow Marci Flying WItch 
Marci  and Vampire Luka. Dies i used were Pumpkins Die  Spider web corner die and  Spider Web border die .
I also used the Halloween Frames and Shapes kit to decorate the spooky scene.



The stamps were coloured with copics-

I drew and coloured the haunted house, tree and gravestones with copics and coloured the bones and ghost with C1, C3 and C5. The coffin was made out of cardstock and lined with satin. Inka gold was used on the spider webs and bats for that extra bit of sparkle
Happy Halloween!!

Kimono Marci

Kimono Marci with Fan
Hi Im sharing my first card for La La Land Crafts as a Guest Designer. The DT theme this week was "more then one fold", so  I  created a 3 layered card using Kimono Marci and  coloured her with copics. I added some La La Land Craft dies to complete the card. 

I used the Pagoda Die on the second layer.

The Bridge die and open leaf flourish die completed the card on the 3rd layer.

Steampunk Gift Bag

My Steampunk Gift Bag started with a roll of tape, black cardstock, copics, embossing folders and chipboard

After giving my bigshot a work out i had enough chipboard bits and pieces to add to the bag.....cogs and flourishes were glued under the tape and then i used a stylus to shape the tape around the chipboard pieces. I then coloured the bag using copics
C1, C3, C5, C7. C9, C10 BV02 BV04, BV08 and then sanded the raised areas.
I added chains and charms to the side as well as some brads and staples.
Eyelets, ribbons and a bow with a black rose completed the finished look.
