A Zombie Halloween ...

Hello Everyone

A quick post from me, if you don't like Zombies then look away now!  

When Tim brought out his three new monster dies, there was only one for me - the Zombie.  During my blog break last month I took the opportunity to make some Halloween cards for friends and family (well, the ones who appreciate the darker side of Halloween anyway - lol), 

I was thrilled when Tim's October tag featured the Zombie die, but I haven't got round to creating mine yet, but thought I would share a couple of cards.

I decided to stick to black and white.  I cut some of the elements in white and some in black, the die pieces are small but they are scored and incredibly easy to put together.  The card is bound together with Regions Beyond Design Tape.
I also used Tim's cabinet card dies and the new cobweb embossing folder.  Once embossed I highlighted the embossing with a white pigment ink.
The second card is very similar, just a different background and I used Tim's Idea-ology spider charms.  The bodies have been covered with  Distress Glitter, an idea I picked up from a project that Zoe Hillman (igirlzoe) did here, A simple but effective way to give the spiders a lovely 'glow'.  I hate spiders in real life though ...

I hope I haven't frightened you too much with my spooky makes...  DH had to stop me from buying a life sized plastic skeleton at the weekend.... yes, really...

Thanks for looking, hope to see you soon 

Hugs, Anne xx

    Had to chuckle about your 'almost' purchase - I bought a two foot one in a cage to hang over the desks at work.

  12. As you may remember, I am not a zombie fan (I just love the harvest side of halloween), but of course I just HAD to check these out and they are truly amazing!! I adore how you used the spider web embossing folder (funnily enough I don't mind real spiders at all...). Highlighted with the white ink, they look just amazing!! Some lucky people are going to be very happy with these cards!!

  19. Wonderful cards Anne - I have this monster die too -- cute as he can be, not as handsome as Mr. Poe but cute all the same. I do believe I like the second card the best.

  21. I have to say I am not keen on zombies but your card did make me smile. Your cards are great and I love that spiders web embossing folder. I'd sneak that skeleton into a spare room when DH isn't looking!! Elaine

  22. WOW! These are spookily fabulous ....... I love the sparkly spiders. You definitely are the Queen of Halloween! hugs Linda xx

  23. Loved this one, even though I don't much like the 'grim look' of zombies, skulls, etc. (Now my DH would really go for this one! Halloween is his favorite holiday he says). Love the way you've used the elements to create this Spook-tac-u-lor creature. The EF did a terrific embossing on the inside of the cabinet, and I liked the touch of blazing orange under the b&w spookie. Of course those creepy spiders look much too real! As always, another wonderful 3D project from you. TFS & hugs
