The New Stamps are Here... The New Stamps are Here!

Exciting news! The new designs are out from Lizzie Anne Designs! Check 'em out HERE. I made a couple samples for you... and more are coming tomorrow, so stay tuned.

I love Halloween! And this new set from LAD called "Happy Haunting" is so versatile. It could go either country/cute or creepy/crawly!

This first project is a Halloween Tag... I stamped on Natural White Cardstock with Adirondack Espresso (a new favorite ink of mine... such a nice DARK Brown), affixed the Cardstock to a Chipboard tag and sponged the edges with Chocolate Chip Ink by SU! The pumpkin in the center is from the set "celebrations" (also LAD). I colored the pumpkin with Copic markers... and hey, I think I am getting pretty good at working with my Copics! The scalloped frame was glittered with fine glitter in Brownstone by Martha Stewart Crafts... then punched out. I used Heat and Stick Powder to apply the glitter. Another Martha Product used here is Tissue Paper... but in a Halloween Print. I would actually refer to it as glassine... It has a slight waxy finish and is thick. I used a small square of the tissue on the metal edged tag in this project... but the next card (last below) really shows off this product! I antiqued the tag with Brown StazOn. A small brass snap and a brass spiral clip give the tag a bit more shine. Ribbon by Stampin' Up!

Here is that Glassine in action... I crimped it (hadn't used my crimper in a while!) and then hid the glue under the self adhesive Halloween ribbon (also by Martha). I just love the texture of this product and really want to incorporate it into more of my projects. "Happy Haunting" looks so great with the cute stuffs by Martha too! The little spider... hanging from a faux stitched line is from the LAD set "Spooked!"... so cute!

This new stamp is only $3.99 by the way! What a steal!
