Vera Lane Studio: Halloween Mix-up

Hello everyone!

Here at Vera Lane Studio, our theme this month is Halloween. Each month we have an ATC swap and this month DT member, Stephanie is hosting the Halloween Mix-up swap. 

 We are collaborating with the lovely Serena Bee, using some of the October papers from her shop, Papercakes. I hope you'll pop over and see the wonderful products for sale in her shop and stop by her blog for some Halloween inspiration.

I made these mix-up ATCs by swapping heads and bodies of the main character in each:



For this one I swapped Cindy Clawford's head for one of the Skullies' heads - I love the pumpkin hat! I added Corbett and the pumpkin pail from the Little Witch set and a sentiment from Halloween Expressions. Do you like the tiny googly eyes - I thought they were a fun addition! I used scraps of October Nights Paper from Papercakes for the background along with some glitter tape and some ric-rac ribbon.



For this ATC I used Cindy Clawford's head on Raven's body. I teamed her with a headstone and zombie daisy from Zombie Accessories and creepy-cute Carlos. This time I used scraps of Spooky Pastel papers from Papercakes for the background and a sentiment from Halloween Expressions.

I hope you'll come along and play on Vera Lane. It's such a friendly, fun place to be!
You'll find us on Facebook in a closed, supportive group, which I invite you all to join! 
You can find us HERE. There's always tons of fabulous inspiration!
I guarantee, you'll get a very warm welcome!




Thanks for stopping by today.

Vera Lane Studio: Raven and Pixie

Hello everyone!

Here at Vera Lane Studio, our theme this month is Halloween. 

 We are collaborating with the lovely Serena Bee, using some of the October papers from her shop, Papercakes. I hope you'll pop over and see the wonderful products for sale in her shop and stop by her blog for some Halloween inspiration.

I made this card using the gorgeous little zombie girl, Raven and her doggie sidekick, Pixie:



The images were coloured with markers and fussy cut. They were popped on foam pads onto a background made with Spooky Pastel papers matted onto black card. A torn piece of black and white washi tape was used to ground the images. The sentiment is from the Halloween Expressions set.

Vera Lane Studio: Skullies!

Hello everyone!

I hope you're enjoying October so far.
There is so much going on in blogland and not enough time to follow it all!

Here at Vera Lane Studio, we are having a month of mischievous Halloween fun and we are collaborating with the lovely Serena Bee. Please pop over to her blog and shop, Papercakes, to see her super-cute Halloween makes.

Today I have a set of ATCs to share. Each ATC features one of the  Skullies made into a paperclip to keep your papers and planners in order, or it could be used as a bookmark.



The Skullies digital set contains 10 different skulls and 2 hats - a super bundle that is oh-so versatile! 
You will need 2 of each image to create a paperclip. One image will need to be reversed, which is very easy to do (I have a little video tutorial here).  I coloured the images with markers, adding Posca white pen and glitter for some detail. The two sides were glued together, sandwiching the jumbo paperclip - I used silicone glue for this. 
The ATC backgrounds are made from Serena's October Nights paper. The edges were inked in black and some silver trim was added. The Alpha stickers were adhered, then the paperclip attached with some black glitter tape. Green gems were placed in the centre of some of the webs.
I decided to put the ATCs on small cards again made with Serena's paper, so that I could send them along with Happy Mail.

BOO!
  

EEK!
  

R.I.P.

Vera Lane Studio: Little Witch

Hello everyone!

This month at Vera Lane Studio, our theme is Halloween. We are collaborating with the lovely Serena Bee and are using some of the October papers from her shop, Papercakes.

Here is a shaker card I made:


For this card, I used the Little Witch digi set from Vera Lane Studio. The images were coloured with markers, fussy cut and popped on foam pads. The background is made from October Nights paper and orange textured card. I made a shaker and filled it with Halloween confetti. 

Here's a closer look at the cute characters:

Scrapbook Stamp Society: Autumn

Hello everyone!

Autumn is well and truly here now!
I love the colours of the season, but, I've decided, only on a bright, sunny day!
My favourite tree is already bald on top and it won't be long before all of its leaves are shed.
We've had a very wet weekend and those pesky leaves are now wet and slippery.
And such a pain to gather up...!


Today I'm sharing my DT project for 
Scrapbook Stamp Society

The challenge is always Anything Goes, but this time we have the optional theme of Autumn.

The Winners and Runner-Ups will receive My Bestie digital stamps from a selection on offer.  For more details, please pop over to the challenge blog.

Here is my card:



I coloured My Bestie (Urban Farm Diva Daisy May Img409) with markers and fussy cut her. She's attached to a pearly gold oval die cut which was inked around the edges with Memento Sand. The background papers are from a digital set called Autumn Colours from Gecko Galz. I inked these in black as they are both very detailed. I added some hessian binding and some ribbon with tiny gems. The sentiment is from TLC.




I hope you'll pop over to the Challenge Blog and see the DT's fabulous projects.
We would love it if you'd share your work with us!


Thanks for stopping by today!

Vera Lane Studio: Lil Tricksters


Hello everyone!

This month at Vera Lane Studio we are collaborating with the lovely Serena Bee and are using some of the October papers from her shop, Papercakes.

Our theme this month is, of course, Halloween, so I used the VLS Lil Tricksters digi set and the October Nights paper pack to make a set of ATCs.



I love the spookily-cute little characters! They are coloured with markers and fussy cut. The backgrounds were created by mixing and matching some of the October Nights papers. All edges were inked with Ranger Black ink. I added some glitter washi tape, some orange ric-rac, some black lace and a scrap of cheesecloth for extra texture. The Tricksters were popped on foam pads. The words are from the Halloween Expressions set. Some Halloween confetti and gems were added too.
