LDRS Creative - October Feature Day Blog Hop - Day 2

Hello everyone and welcome to our Fall and Halloween Feature!

For the next two days, the Design Team has created gorgeous projects to inspire you with the latest Fall collection that is now available in a local craft store near you!

We are talking about... 

Some amazing Halloween High Jinks Stamps (cut out in no time with the coordinating die set), Happy Haunting Stamps (with a perfect coordinating die set here), and one of the new Petal Pusher sets, Pick of the Patch (and its die set)!

We also continued adding to our wonderful Basic dies line: In the Breeze Die SetDown Main Street Die, and Over the Hills Die. Not to forget Up a Tree Die SetGarden Gateway Die SetGarden Wreath Die Set. They fit with all of our products, so don't miss on them!

People have been amazed by the thickness of the brand new Fall 6x6 paperpack, Sweater Weather - 6x6 Paper. How GORGEOUS is it?!

And of course, a brand new all-in-one stencil called A Walk in the Park - 6x6 Stencil !

So we are sharing more Fall/Halloween inspiration today and I have used the super cute HALLOWEEN HIGH JINKS stamp set and matching DIES to make my card.

Now a technique (if you can call it that) that I love to use in my crafting is the ‘what-else-can-I-make-out-of-that’ technique. I know, a bit of a mouthful, but I love to see what else I can create from my dies and stamps beyond their original intent and this is what led me to create Bat Cat; the notorious graveyard prowling Halloween monster! Ooooo!

So this is simplicity itself as all I did was stamp, colour and die cut some of the images from the HALLOWEEN HIGH JINKS set and cut them up.

So my cat sits on top of a gravestone, on top of a pumpkin (cut away from the cat stamp) another pumpkin (the stamp as it is), with bat wings (cut from the little vampire), wearing a hat made from the spider and unicorn horn (cut away from the little girl). 

Not too scary I’ll admit but he was fun to make and add to my inked background cut and layered using dies from the PRACTICALLY OVAL set and paper from SWEATER WEATHER

I added a torn and ‘scrolled’ sentiment and some stars from the BY THE LIGHT OF THE MOON die set to finish.  

Hop around this short hop to see all the beautiful creations and new techniques used on them!
