Zombie Warning!

>> Friday, August 26, 2016

by Julie Warner - The Write Stuff

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! Is it starting to look a little spooky around here? Must be all the wonderful new DRS Halloween images! It looks like our own version of  the Walking Dead! I picture  these zombies as kind of greenish gray so that's how I colored this new Zombie Gal. Since the background is also a shadowy gray, I wanted some color so I added the orange to her shirt & the spooky moon (which was stamped separately & fussy cut). The bg was sponged in using the pumice ink & a cloud stencil I made using a piece of acetate (from a piece of packaging) & a pair of scallop scissors. I made it out of the plastic because I wanted it to hold up & also so I could wipe it off. Since it was made years ago, so far, so good! I used the same ink to stamp the grass. 
Here's a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
paper: white, orange
ink: Memento tuxedo black Distress Ink pumice stone, Versafine onyx

Beach Zombie

>> Wednesday, August 24, 2016

I love a beach scene and I love the new Zombie images DRS Designs has come out with, so I combined the two and came up with this fun card!

I stamped the new Zombie hand and Zombie Sign images, masked them and a circle (for the moon), then sponged around them with Distress Inks, and stamped my fav Sea Grass image.  I needed it to look a little more like night time so I added a few moonlight touches with a white gel pen.  Fun, fun, fun. 

Now this would be a bit scarier than some little old sharks don't you think?




Zombies Rising

>> Tuesday, August 23, 2016

Hi Everyone,

I've been having fun making Halloween cards this past week using the new zombie stamps that DRS Designs just released!  They came out at the perfect time for me, because I just finished watching the first season of The Walking Dead.  I'm definitely late to the party on this show, since I think they're going to start season six or seven, not to mention spin offs, but I feel better that I'm now in the know, regarding this pop culture hit :) So, if you're a fan of the show, you'll be a fan of these stamps for sure.  They're a real must have!  

I chose an orange base due to the Halloween theme, and I stamped and die cut my Zombies Rising Greeting (936G), leaving the die in place and added some orange sponging to match.  I added a die cut layer and set it aside while I stamped, colored and fussy cut my Zombie Guy (917G).

 Next I set about creating a background on a muted yellow card stock.  I chose to keep it neutral simply stamping it in black ink, therefore highlighting the sentiment and zombie.  Accent Bats were stamped at the top, followed by the Silhouette  Graveyard and the Zombie Crawler (932F) at the bottom.  

Be sure to check out all the fun new stamps at DRS Designs! 

 Have a great day...


Remember the Ghoul times!

>> Monday, August 22, 2016

DRS Designs is about to release some new Halloween stamps and this week you will see some sneak peeks of these scary and not so scary images. I used the new "Remember the Ghoul Times" greeting (969D) on my black and white Halloween card.

I stamped each of the images with Brilliance Moonlight White ink onto black CS, using my MISTI to create a clear crisp image. I didn't have to mask anything, it all fit just right in the spaces. Here are the images from DRS Designs that I used:

Remember the Ghoul Times (969D)
Spooky Old Tree (070L)
Winter Trees (680L)
Accent Bats (517A)
Ghouls (268D)

Some milky rhinestones were added to the lower left corner and the top corners were rounded with a corner punch.

I stamped the accent bats and ghouls with Versafine Black Onyx ink on the inside just for fun.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check the on line store for these soon to be released images,


The Zombies Are Coming

>> Sunday, August 21, 2016

The Zombies are coming and they want you.

DRS designs has some great new Halloween stamps. I have had the best time working with them you can do so much from scary to cute.
For my card I stared by stamping the Zombie Crawler covering him with a mask then I stamped the  Add A Fence covered that and for the horizon I stamped the Silhouette Grave Yard . I used the outside the box technique and a rectangle die to cut out the image. Everything was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black, and colored with Copic markers.

The greeting is the new Zombie Brain Love Greeting It was stamped with Color Box black and embossed with clear embossing powder. The background paper was sponged with Broken China Distress Ink and embossed with a embossing folder. 

For the inside I sponged the same as the front the stamped and clear embossed the Zombie Rising Halloween Greeting., and the Silhouette Spooky Village.

The new stamps will be available August 24.

Have a wonderful day,


Monster Mash!

>> Saturday, August 20, 2016

Good morning all!
 Ha!  With all the Zombie shows and movies on TV right now, DRS has come up with it's own Zombies to add to the mix!!
This is my card called Monster Mash (Is anyone old enough to remember that song??)
It is so funny so I wanted to do a take off from the song seeing that these two zombies COULD be doing that dance...Ok, look at the guy, he's sportin his moves) I think the girl needs a bit more work!

My grandson, Jordan love the Walking Dead show and actually got me watching it one weekend when they had a Walking Dead marathon on TV.  Good gravy!
I was hooked that weekend but decided to go cold turkey after that and not watch anymore.  There is something about that show that hooks ya! I don't have time to watch TV, I have cards to make...can I get an Amen to that!?

So I stamped my two characters and die cut with a pierced square then cut another pierced square from purple.  I punched the web border with a Martha Stewart "around the page" border punch set.
I stamped just the word Monster from the new Monster Hugs sentiment and cut it small then used letter dies to make the word Mash (The Monster Mash was a dance to go with the song).
(New Release stamps: 917G Zombie Guy, 922H Zombie Gal, 975D Monster Hugs Greeting)

I hope you love these new stamps the way that we do!!
Thanks for visiting today!
