Creepy Cute Chronicles #32! : Spooky Gingerbread

Hello everyone!!!

It's almost Christmas! Are you excited?! I always love this time of year. The lights, the food, the music and the excitement of my kids opening presents.

To celebrate the holiday season,  OddBall has been dishing out some fun freebies in their weekly newsletter, and this week is no exception.

I absolutely adore this image. During this time, ghouls find a way to add a spooky flair t their holiday dishes and skeleton gingerbread cookies have been all the rage!
To set the scene, I created a plate using teo different of circle dies to trace on my paper. I wanted the background to look like a placemat. For that I used this adorable candycane imagen frm a Clear Snap stamp set. Everything was colored using my Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers.

Zombiegale is Coming to Town!

Hello everyone!

We're 4 days away from opening gifts and spending time with family, but I've also got zombies on my mind! For today's OddBall Art make, I decided to use IMG#142 creepy Cute Christmas Zombiegale, to create this card inspired by this months challenge theme: Holiday Haunts and Silly Stripes!

I went for a full, festive scene,  using some die sets I had in my stash and everything colored using my Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers.

The sentiment included in this digital stamp set, gives a new twist to a classic Christmas song and adds the perfect touch to finish this card!

For today's make, I wanted to use IMG#270 Kawaii Christmas Chibi Girl Jaz So Ready for Christmas, because that's how I feel today!

Inspired by the papers and accents that I used, I wanted to keep the image true to traditional Christmas colors. I colored our cute gal pal using my Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers , propped her up on a mini canvas,  and finished with felt details and shiny stickers!
