Happy Halloween - Magnolia-licious 'Spooktacular Fun'


We've got a new challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.  The theme is 'Spooktacular Fun' which means anything Halloween.  My DT teammates have also created cards and/or projects to inspire you to play along with us.  Check them out at the Magnolia-licious blog, HERE and also to get complete details of the challenge and how you can join in the fun.  

I've created this easel card for the challenge.

The circles, trees, fence and bats were cut out from dies in my collection.  The cat silhouette I found from the internet and then cut out by hand.  The spider were made from two black pom-poms (one medium, one small) and glued to spider legs also cut-out by hand.

Here's a close-up of the images being featured--they're from 2 separate stamps:

- Tilda With Bow Beret from the Sakura Collection 2015
- Pumpkin and Leaves from the So Spooky Collection 2009

I didn't do any masking here.  Both images were stamped and coloured separately.  Then I cut them out and placed the Tilda on top of the Pumpkin.

Magnolia Stamps stamps are available from Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store where she carries a large selection of both full-size and mini Magnolia stamps.  And if you don't see the particular one you are looking for, e-mail Diana and I'm sure she'll be happy to bring it in for you.
