Hello, Claire N, back with you today to show you a little more detail on my Halloween challenge make this month.
I only have one of Sarah's Doodle Dolls, but the beauty of their design is that you can adaot them to whatever scene suits just by colouring. So our 'Dream a little Dream Doll' has donned a Halloween outfit. There is lots of texture going on with this plaque, so I'll show you how I achieved it.

I'm sharing a fun card using the Special Edition Stamps -Garden Fairy by the uber talented Clare Brown. I was able to use most of the elements in the set and glad to see how it works well to create a happy and bright card.
For the main image, I stamped the cute fairy in white cardstock and colored it with promarker. After coloring, I added a Wink of Stella Clear glitter pen to give some shine without overdoing it.
Noticed the bright papers? I got them from the Tropical Favourites kit, love the cheerful colors of the kit :)
I stamped the banners in different inks and fussy cut them. I added them on top of the card panel for some additional dimension and texture too, don't you love the different patterns of these banners?
I think the stamp set will be great also for a fairy theme birthday invitation, an accent for a tag or as the stamp of choice for girl's scrapbook page.
So here it is, a look at the full card
That's it for today and we'll catch up again soon!

It's coming........that spooky, fun, let yourself go time of year! Like most people, I love it. It seems like the whole of the DT have gone Halloween crazy and I don't blame them!
This is my Halloween journal page for the challenge which you can find here.
I thought I'd have some fun with the Doodle Home stamp set. I had forgotten how cool this set is and makes a great addition to a journal page.
I just stamped them out a few times, cut them out and used a soft black pencil to go around the edges. My background is a bit of good old finger painting with acrylics in purple and white.
I finished it off with the quote and a few spooky additions.
Have fun this Halloween.

1 I picked the Silhouette file I wanted, then the colour of card I wanted to use, I picked the awesome Bat Card Frame. I also "released the compound path" of the file so I could cut out the oval shape in plain white card. I also placed a couple of Bat Silhouettes on the top and bottom of the oval, you will see what I did with them next.

I’m not usually a big fan of Halloween, but since having children we do celebrate it a little more. So I made this banner to hang up:
The pennants were cut by hand and embellished with papers and images from Sarah’s Spook Street Digi Kit.
- Kraft, Green, Purple & White Card
- Archival ‘Jet Black’ Inkpad
- Derwent Pencils
- White and Black Fine Line Pens
- Glitter Glue
Thanks for stopping by

It is Nicole here with a fun Halloween tag project. I used the fun Spook Street kit for some embellishments and the fabulous crackle background stamp on this one.
I die cut a black and a purple tag. I had some orange card left over so tore up a strip of that also.

Nicole here today to share a little step by step with you all. You may have seen my tag over on the challenge post a few weeks ago? I created a tag shaped door hanger for Halloween decor. Today I want to share the way I created the background.
I started off by paper piecing the image together. I coloured the flesh in a pink and green tone and added in the hair and dress.

1 - Stamp Angelica onto white card.
2 - Stamp two skulls, one onto the sticky bit of a post it note as you will need that as a mask for the bones and one onto Angelica's dress.
3 - Place the mask over the skull you stamped onto Angelica's dress and stamp two bones like in the picture.
4 - Colour her in with your favourite pens or pencils. I used Promarkers and Flexmarkers.
5 - Fussy cut her out.
6 - Punch out lots of different bits of Halloweeny papers from the 31 Spook Street Digi Kit and go around the edge with a black marker or ink pad. This is a great way to use up scraps of paper.
7 - Layer them onto the page.
8 - Pop Angelica onto some 3d foam and place her on top of the punchie shapes.
9 - Use the Spooktacular sentiment from the stamps to finish the card.
