Challenge #46 – You’re a Stitch!

Tiddly Inks 11 Comments »

Created this card for the card challenge being held over at Tiddly Inks, You’re a Stitch!  The theme being to incorporate stitching into your card somewhere.  I added mine to the middle, stitching my two panels together. The fabulous border punch was  a gift from a fabulous friend.  I used some decorative ribbon and weaved some black beaded cord through it, trying to make it looked for like barbed wire to match the image. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get it to show up so well in the image.  Had a blast with the challenge, hope to catch the next one!

Supplies:  Digital Image, Tiddly Inks; Paper, K & Co; Ribbon, Cord, Thread, Stickles, Pearls, MS Border Punch. Colored with Copics.


HDH085 Gothic Pin-up

Halloween, Haunted Design House, Tiddly Inks 5 Comments »

For the Haunted Design House Challenge this week, it’s goth pin-ups. Perfect for me, since I love goth and pin-ups! This actually took much longer then I wanted. The image and sentiment are from Tiddly Inks, who has also sponsored the challenge this week.  I thought for my card, that I would actually try and make a frame (which is why this took so long).  I cut some flat wooden slats I had down to fit as the frame, then painted them with black acrylic paint.  I then added microbeads and glitter to the frame to try and give it a grungy look to fit the card.  The background was embossed using my cuttlebug and a Tim Holtz folder.  The middle panel is designer paper with trees, but unfortunately, the name of the company that makes it is unknown to me.  I added some metal photo corners to the frame once I got it in place.  In the background behind the middle panel I added some pine punch outs. I did add some stitching to her button eye, but unfortunately, that did not show up to well in the image. 

Supplies: Digi Stamps – Tiddly Inks; Paper – unknown; Photo corners, paint, microbeads, pine punch, jewels.


Happy New Year!

Hope everyone has a wonderful New Year!  To celebrate I made this card using one of Tiddly Inks adorable digitial images “Toasting Properly.”  She is just too cute with her poison bottle and skull earrings : p  She is my kind of girl!  The paper is from The Paper Studio. Both the dots and the stripes are velvet-y.  I thought this (and the black) would be for an elegant occassion, and I used red velvet ribbon across the card to try and break things up a bit.  I didn’t have a New Years Sentiment, so I printed that out on the computer.  The clock is Tim Holtz.  I added Stickles to her dress to make it sparkle.  I think she’s really for that drink now!

Lovely skull earrings dear, and whatever did you put in this Cocktail? It’s to die for!”

Supplies:  Digital Stamp – Tiddly Inks; Paper – The Paper Studio; Clock – Tim Holtz; Stickles, Black Glitter Pearls, Ribbon. Colored with Copics.

They’re Creepy and They’re Kooky…..

Ok, I admit, I absolutely LOVE Halloween!  Creepy, spooky, grim or ghastly! As you can probably tell my the name of my blog, a Poe fan.  I like the darker side of things, but not the horrifying, gory, murdering psychos of film.  I can do without Jason and his bloody chainsaw.  Halloween to me is Witches and bats, spiders and graveyards, Franky and The Count….well, you get the picture. 

Because of my love of all things kooky and macabre, you will probably find lots of spookyness here all year long.  I have tried, but I can’t seem to limit my ghoulishness to Halloween.  Where is the fun in that?  

These wonderful goth girls can be found at Tiddly Inks Digital Stamps.  You can find tons of other ghoulish goodness over there, so if you like the cuter side of creepy, but sure to go and check them out!

Gossmere was colored with Copics. Paper used is Making Memories Halloween, and Cosmo Cricket.  I used spider web ribbon I believe I bought at Wal-mart as the back ground for my “Creepy” sticker (EK Success).
