Inspiration Week: Introducing Halloween Cuties Set

I'm so excited that our little company is turning one this month and we're celebrating with three new Fall stamps & their coordinating dies coming out on Friday.  Today I'm sharing several ideas for a new stamp set called Halloween Cuties!  This set comes with two costumed Critters and includes all sorts of supporting images from jack-o-lanterns, to bats and spiders (I promise they're more cute than creepy).  ;)

Up first is a little scene using a number of images from the set (along with an extra pumpkin from our Harvest Happiness set) which I colored with Copic Markers.

For my next card I focused on the bats, moon and stars from the set (and the banner from our Sunny Borders set).  After coloring my images with Copics, I finished my card by adding a bit of bling to the moon & stars using the new Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pens.

For my last card I used that the same little witch, pairing her with the broomstick and cauldron that come with the set.

Curious how I created the bokeh backgrounds for my three cards?  I've put together a little step-by-step picture tutorial for you (click on the image below to view it larger).  

It's a twist on an idea that the amazing Sandy Allnock inspired me with HERE.  She used magnets & a Copic airbrush for her idea and for mine I used die-cut vinyl circles, Distress ink & my favorite jumbo dauber by Tsukineko.  :)

I actually love this technique so much that I also used it on some cards shared earlier HERE and HERE.

Here's a full look at the new Halloween Cutie stamps and coordinating dies.
