September 2016 Stamps of the Month - Fall and Halloween Stamps

Jillian O'Diorne added to the Texana Halloween line this year with the ghost, scarecrow, vampire and a treat bag.  Karen Lambert drew the bale of hale and the crow.  Frankie was released last year, but the mini was released this year along with the mini sugar skull.

Karen used the new watercolor stamps for this beautiful fall sample.  The stamps are colored with watercolor markers then stamped onto watercolor paper.  Next a paintbrush with just the smallest amount of water on it is used to pull the colors out and create a beautiful watercolor painting.

Treat Bag by Jilda Bolton

Jilda Bolton's Supply List:

Texana Design “Vampire”
Texana Design “I vant a Bite of Candy”
Lawn Fawn Goodie Bag Die #LF771
12” X 12” Bazzill Bling Tiara cardstock #4652302120
12” X 12” Doodlebug design 3514 Going Batty #4271503514, cut into 1” X 3-1/2” pieces
X-Press It double sided tape – ½”, ¼” and 1/8”
Wink of Stella – Silver, red, and black pens
Black Scrapbook Adhesives 3D foam squares/regular-3 
Velcro 3/8” Thin Clear Fastener
6 Hershey’s Nuggets candies

I cut the goodie bag out of the Bling Tiara cardstock (12” X 12” paper is enough for two bags) and assembled it using double sided tape.  Lawn Fawn’s on-line instructions are very easy to follow.  I colored the vampire and cut him out to pop on the bag with the foam squares.  I wrapped the Going Batty strips around the candy and fastened them with the 1/8” tape. The Velcro fastener will close the bag with the candy inside for delivery to your lucky friends.

 Janet Bradshaw's Supply List:

Scarecrow, Crow, Haybale, Pumpkin Trio (mini) and “A Thankful Heart is a Happy Heart”
Paper Pieced scarecrow and pumpkins using Colorways Paper Pads

I tried dimensionals for the hat and buttons.  I tried Stickles and I tried Dovecraft 3D Enamel Effects.  They didn't wow the card as much as I hoped.

I stamped the pumpkin trio (mini) and then masked it off before stamping the hay bale before piecing the pumpkins and adding a pop dot under the center pumpkin.

Card & Tag by Janet
I also made samples using Distress Collage Medium - Vinatge. 

Janet's Summer of Creative Chemistry with lots of fun new techniques with Tim Holtz created lots of opportunity to showcase some of the new fall stamps.

And Janet made store samples using new stamps.   
I guess we know where Jillian gets her love of Halloween!
