Halloween Monster Mash

Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about Monster Mash.

Whether you're loving Tim's new monster die cuts or having a monster (big) project to take on, have some zombie stamps or want to create your own stitched up (Frankenstein?!) of a project. This week we're taking on a Monster of a theme...

There is no greater Monster mash as Halloween! When I gathered all my Halloween stuff I saw I had the Halloween Background embossingfolder. That inspired me for the background of this card. I almost never use embossing folders lately. Before I embossed the background I did some random stamping. After I had embossed I used Seedless Preserves the color it. I didn't like the color and I didn't get the effect I wanted. So I took Crushed Grapes and after some sprays I was happy! After it was dry, I went over the embossed parts with the Black Soot Distress Ink Pad. So pretty!


The new Tim Halloween stamps are really amazing! I love the Undertaker. I think he got a little bit too scary when I colored him with Distress Markers and gave him rotten teeth. So fun what the effect of googly eyes can do. It immediately gave him a personality.


When I was looking for some rhinestones I came across some pink feathers which I bought when I was still making handbags. I love the Haunted Webs from Memory Box. So cool and detailed. Perfect for in the background.
