Halloween Card Making with Nicecrane Designs

Hi everyone

I thought I was going to  miss Halloween this year but I managed to make a few cards.  I have been using Nicecrane Designs Vintage Halloween digi images.

I have altered these digi images a little bit using PSE.  They are perfect the way they are but I personally wanted a softer feel to them.  That is the beauty of Nicecrane Designs Images, the quality is such that you can manipulate them in so many different ways to suit your own style of cardmaking and crafting.   Not only that but they are absolute bargain.  Seriously, you have to see for youself.

Right, eyes down and look in.  I have to say that because it is the only way to get Kylie and Marie’s attention.  Complete Bingo addicts don’t you know.  Well that is if Marie remembers where she is.  “Your in Blog Land Sweetie ” ….Bless! drinks y’know! Shhhhhh!  Stop laughing Lynne, you know it is true.

For my second card I cut the little clown out and decoupaged it up a little.  Talking of decoupage….Hello Rita…Hope you are ok.  Rita likes decoupage.

I made a little white collar just for more depth.

DSC_0043atflo0744BPThis card is dedicated to my lovely blogging friend Cathryn who has been really poorly.  Thinking of you Cathryn and take care.

I wanted something a bit quirky with this.  I love the surreal artwork.  It just fascinates me.  Especially the works by artists such as Christian Schloe and Catrin Welz Stein.  So, I took inspiration from that style and added the fish swimming in the sky.

I love this cheeky little character.  I thought, for this one, I would stay traditional and use just black and orange colours.   I used Chocolate Baroques Spookylicious rubber stamp to make the embellishment.

My final card for today, and also one that I am entering into the Addicted to Stamps and More colour challenge this week.

I lightened and altered this image.  It’s not really a Halloween card but I thought the colours suit the theme and it could easily be altered into a halloween card.

I stamped around the edges of my image with a floral florish.

That’s all from me today.  Thank you for stopping by.  Great to have your company.

Tat tar for now and happy crafting.

  4. Florence, I just love your cards! They are the sweetest, and i think the last one of the little boy in the corner gets my heart…poor little guy. You embellished them all so perfectly, and I do so like the ruffled collar addition – delightful! You are so very talented, and I enjoy looking at what you’ve created.

    Blessings for more inspiration,

    • Hi Monika, Lovely to hear from you. They are really good fun to work with. I really like those images you have been working with as well. You made a fabulous job. Some times you dont notice the images on the NcD’s web site until someone else uses them.
      Hugs, Flo xx
