coming soon to a mailbox near you!

you're supposed to read that in movie preview announcer voice, btw. : )

it's no secret that i love use a stamp in a completely different way than it's original capacity; the ipod stamp in christmas colors, "you rock" with the rocking chair and so on... so, when the new halloween & holiday stamps started rolling in my wheels started spinning. a few days a go i finally sat down at the crafty table without class prep on the brain and made 4 movie inspired cards.


first up, of course, was "twilight" as soon as i saw this "fetch the tree" truck stamp in a muse's christmas release i automatically though of bella's truck. so i stamped it, copic'ed it and then cut it out so that it didn't have to have a christmas tree in the truck bed, added some of those washington state pines and a "new moon" and put it all with some of that "ambrosia" stripe that i will never be able to let go of!

this next guy is "spiderman" inspired, duh! this is one of memory box's new halloween stamps. the little spider in ingeniously mounted on the side of the stamp so you can stamp him anywhere you want him on the web or anywhere else. i let the copics and the hambly web transparency do most of the work on this card!


next up is a "nightmare before christmas" inspired card. sadly, i didn't have a little jack or sally stamp, but something about the twisty hills in this new memory box stamp screamed "tim burton" to me! the tiny, script-y "be astonished" stamp also seemed fitting. oh, speaking of which, all the little script-y sayings on these cards are all from one of my favorite sentiment sets ever from "my favorite things". i love that it has a million little sayings that will fit just about anywhere, and they're different then you're run of the mill, everyday sayings!



this last one is more than a little creepy, but totally "coraline!" i knew these basic grey stamps were tim burton-y, but as soon as i saw "coraline" i knew they had to be button-eyed ghost children! the paper is one of the brand new halloween patterns coming out soon, and to scraptasia, from making memories! i just drew little stitches between the stripes to keep up that "coraline" feel and of course added their buttons!

that's all for today, i'm hoping to do a list of my favorite products from cha soon though!
