Waltzingmouse Stamps September Release Previews, Day 2

Now it's time for the spooky good fun to start at Waltzingmouse Stamps!  Claire is releasing 8 new stamp sets this Thursday, September 19th!  Today we are beginning to showcase her amazing new Halloween images!  Up first are...The Count, Splat That, and All Hallow's Eve!

For my first project, I thought it was high time to break out the crackle paint ;)


Every time I see the set The Count, I want to do the laugh..."Mwah ha ha ha!"  :)  I painted a little paper mache box with Tim Holtz black crackle paint and then distressed it further with Vintage Photo ink.  The tag was made with a Spellbinders Deckled Rectangle Nestabilities.  I stamped The Count with Versamark and heat-embossed with black powder.


The splatter (eek) is courtesy of the new Splat That set!  I thought if I stamped it in Cherry Cobbler it would be perfect for...you know, a vampire (wink)!!  Of course the images in Splat That can be used any time you need that freshly painted look!  The Count's name is part of a sentiment from the set.  I didn't use the whole thing, just colored his name with a Distress marker.

Inside is this little vampire that grows when you place it in water.  My great nephew Owen will love it!


Up next are images from All Hallow's Eve, a gorgeous vintage Halloween set!  Had to start with the raven!


I decided to make the card solely using stamped images.  The background is made by repeatedly stamping a beautiful filagree image included in the set.  


To make my moon, I placed a die cut circle on the paper, sponged around it with Tim Holtz Distress inks in Milled Lavender, Chipped Sapphire, and Weathered Wood, and then stamped the raven and the sentiment over the top.

Tomorrow the spooky fun continues with (quite possibly) my favorites images from the release!  
Until then, visit these Design Team Members' blogs today for more projects!

Couldn't get a more appropriate item to put in the coffin than that vampire. The tag is superb..Owen will surely love it! Great background for the raven!

Your Raven card is my favorite. And the coffin is cute - a growing Dracula figure. What will they think of next? Thanks for posting how you created the background for the Raven card. I bought that stamp set and looking forward to using it soon.
