Day 21
"Sleeping Batleigh Cameos"
Trio of Mini Slimline Cards
by Leigh
  
Once Upon a Nightmare....deep in the enchanted Furness Forest the Sleeping Batleigh Bats begin to stir from their slumber for a night of frightful mischief!
 
 
For Day 21 of our SPOOKtacular 31 Days of Halloween Hop+Challenge I'm back with a trio of quirky cute mini slimline cards featuring digi stamps from my new Once Upon a Nightmare Collection!
 

 The stars of my wickedly cute mini slimline cards are 3 of my new Sleeping Batleigh Bats which I coloured in Adobe Fresco on my iPad, printed out and fussy cut out leaving a very narrow white border around each one.
 

I designed a mini slimline folded card in Silhouette Studio with a slightly smaller top panel and used the interior shape of my new Fern Frame to make an ornate cut out window in the top panel.  
 
 
 
 I used my new Furness Forest Winter Treescape to create the cameo window backgrounds and cut them out using a larger matching cut shape.  I left the backgrounds in black and white to create a nice contrast between the vivid colours.
 

I then created three top panels with the Fern Frame centered over the windows to create my cameos and added three different large senties from the faBOOlous A Wicked Compendium of Halloween Sayings.
 

I then printed out the panels onto a sheet of toxic mixed media cardstock I'd coloured with Peeled Paint, Squeezed Lemonade, Speckled Egg and Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide sprays and cut them out on my Silhouette Cameo 4.  I also cut out 3 of my mini slimline cards from black heavy weight cardstock.

 
I applied metallic gold Spectrum Noir pigment ink to the outside edges of the panels as well as all the window cuts.
 

I assembled all the mini slimline cards and mounted the Sleeping Batleigh Bats inside each cameo with black foam tape.

Day 19
"The Moon has Awoken"
Gothic Easel Card by Leigh
  
Once Upon a Nightmare....in the enchanted Furness Forest the Moon has Awoken with the Sleep of the Sun, the Light has been broken, the Spell has begun!
 

For Day 19 of our SPOOKtacular 31 Days of Halloween Hop+Challenge I'm back with a magical Moon Easel Card featuring digi stamps and SVG Cutz from my new Once Upon a Nightmare Collection!
 

 To make my magical easel card I started out with my new Gothic Crystal Ball Easel Card 3D SVG Cutz set and cut the base pieces from black heavy weight cardstock, the spiderweb and Fleur-de-lis overlays from black 80lb cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo 4.
 
 
I then cut the Crystal Ball base mat layer and the Fleur-de-lis from purple cardstock.


I sized my Wicked Moon digi stamp to fit the easel card in Silhouette Studio and printed it out on Silhouette's specialty glow-in-the-dark sticker paper and cut it out.
 

I then sized the lace overlay from my new Furness Forest Faerie Ring Layered SVG Cutz to fit the easel card and cut it out from black cardstock.
 
 
I also sized "The Moon Has Awoken" saying from my faBOOlous A Wicked Compendium of Halloween Sayings set in Silhouette Studio to fit the crystal ball base and cut it out with an offset and also cut out a matching mat layer from black cardstock.
 
 
 I used the circle mat layer included in the Gothic Crystal Ball Easel Card 3D SVG Cutz set to size the Furness Forest Winter Treescape digi stamp and then cut it out.
 
 
I coloured the treescape circle with Wilted Violet and Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide inks and added stars to the night sky with a white Dylusions paint pen.
 
 
 I then assembled all the cut pieces to create the 3D easel card.  I adhered the base of the crystal ball in place with black foam tape to create the stopper.   The easel card folds flat for mailing and you can also use the easel card pieces to make a 2D crystal ball too!  
 

Now turn out the lights and let the Wicked Moon mesmerize you with it's glowing beauty...the Spell has Begun!

Day 18
"Wicked Moon"
Wall Decor by Val
  
LeighSBDesigner Val's 31 Days of Halloween inspiration for Day 18 is a large totally SPOOKtacular wall decor piece featuring a Digi Stamps and SVG Cutz from my new Once Upon a Nightmare Collection!
 

Val used my new Wicked Moon digi stamp, which she printed, fussy cut out and coloured with Dusty Concord and Mustard Seed Distress Oxide inks with white gel pen detailing, to create her SPOOKtacular large wall decor piece.  She then used the lace overlay from my new Furness Forest Faerie Ring Layered SVG Cutz to create her wicked moon frame.  She sized it to fit in Silhouette Studio and then cut it out of black cardstock using her Silhouette Portrait 3 and then embossed it in silver with Versamark ink and WOW Silver embossing powder and completed the piece with black eyelash fiber.
