Halloween a la 100 Proof Press Stamps

I recently got a chance to play with some stamps from 100 Proof Press.  Let me tell you, they have some AWESOME stamps!

Here is an Altered Tag and an ATC I came up with for Halloween using their stamps.


“Fancy” was was made using fabric and embellishments from Gauche Alchemy’s Limited Edition Halloween Mixed Media Color Kit, a plastic spider ring, fiber, Dylusions Mists, and Toasting Skeletons from 100 Proof Press Stamps. 


“EEK” was made using embellishments from Gauche’s Limited Edition Halloween Mixed Media Color Kit, confetti spiders and sticky-back gems, Dylusions Mists and Jumping Skeleton from 100 Proof Press Stamps.  I like the thought of a skeleton being afraid of spiders!

I had a blast with these stamps.  My goal was to come up with something funny to go with the skeletons instead of the normal Halloween creepy.  I think I succeeded.

Until later………….

Trick or Treat Digital 5 x 7

I’m at it again, playing around with Photoshop and digital images.  This time, I created the following for the So Artful Challenges blog.  If you have time, stop by there and have a look around.  We would love to have you participate.

May Arts/Helmar Ink It Challenge

Recently, May Arts and Helmar joined forces to hold an “Ink It” Challenge.  25 lucky people were chosen to turn an idea into reality with only two caveats:  1)  the May Arts Ribbon had to be inked in some way & 2) Helmar 450 Adhesive had to be used to hold everything down.

Well, YAY ME!, I was chosen!  So, here’s my project.  I chose the Net Ribbon, Suede Leaves, and Mini Pom Pom Ribbon.


I used Dylusions Black Marble on the Net Ribbon and Pom Pom Fringe, & Dylusions Squeezed Orange on the Suede Leaves.  The ribbon took the sprays like a dream and the Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive held everything in place without me having to allow for drying time!  

The cutouts are from Retro Café Art Gallery and the house and skull came from Michaels.

I’m so happy I was given this chance.  Thank you May Arts & Helmar!

Just in case anyone is interested, I did link to their blogs, stores, and the products used.  It’s the least I can do in the way of a Thank You to both companies.  I’m affiliated with neither.

Until later…………………………………
