Spooky and Whimsical Halloween Shaker Cards - Whimsy Stamps

Whimsy Stamp - Guest Blogger
Today I am thrilled to be a special guest blogger for Whimsy Stamps as we celebrate the start to the Halloween season.   I created shakers cards using some of the sweet and some of the spooky designs.  

Whimsy Stamps is more than stamps.  They have an amazing selection of unique dies with a variety of themes including build-a-scene die sets that really caught my eye.

Sweet Shaker Card
Here is my first shaker card - sweet before scary - stamped onto watercolor paper and painted with watercolor pencils. 
This card features a few products: 

Easy DIY Instructions
Here are my easy DIY instructions:  

I'd also like to take a moment to mention the embellishments added to the card. The shaker mix is Monster Mash Sprinkletz (NK150) shaker mix from Buttons Galore. Totally adorable and perfect for this crazy shaker.  

I also added a 3D button Bat and spider also from Buttons Galore and More.  These are from the Happy Hauntings 3D button pack HH104. They make perfect finishing touches.

Next up - spooky.  
This card features the  Whimsy Stamps - Build -a-Graveyard Die Set - designed by Deb Davis (Amped2Stamp).  Well actually this is a combo of the sweet and the spooky because I used the sentiments from Spooky Kitties Clear Stamp by Dustin Pike as the stamped sentiments  for the grave stones.   

This is the wonderful way to mix and match products.  I like to keep thinking of ways to combine products to get the most "bang for my buck" as the saying goes. 

Below is an image of the featured die set.  

The cool shaker mix used here is also from Buttons Galore.  It's from their new product line called Jewelz.  I mixed a few different Jewelz  colors together;  Amethyst Jewelz (JZ117)  and the black are Jet Jewelz (JZ129)  

If you are lime me, I needed all the Halloween colors so I bought the combo kit from Buttons Galore.  This is Halloween Jewelz Mix - JZHalloween

I want to highlight that 31 Days of Halloween hosted by the Whimsy Stamps team.  Stay tuned because there are prizes, frightful inspiration and lots of fun.  

Thanks for stopping here today.  Happy crafting.
