Bold Frights, Halloween Doodles & Snarky Cats | Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Halloween

The Snarky Cats are back! Well, kind of. They're actually making an appearance dressed up with some new Halloween accessories using the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Halloween Doodles Stamp Set. As soon as I saw this set, I knew it would be perfect to mix in with these crazy cats for some new looks this Halloween season. If you missed Tim's Stampers Anonymous Halloween YouTube Live release, you can check out the replay on Tim's blog.

The backgrounds for both of these cards were created using the Distress Oxide, Gel Plates and Stencils technique I've shared in the past. You can check out my How to Create Backgrounds with Distress Oxides, Gel Plates and Stencils post for more details. Using this technique, I sat down one day and made a bunch of backgrounds using a mix of stencils and colors that would work for Halloween. The Distress Oxide colors I used included: Wilted Violet, Twisted Citron, Carved Pumpkin and Black Soot.

I selected a couple of these backgrounds to use for my cards and trimmed them down to 3.75 x 7 inches. I then added some stamping using Hickory Smoke Archival Ink and some of the ephemera images from the Rest In Peace Stamp Set.


Now onto those Snarky Cats. I stamped the cats and various images from the Halloween Doodles Stamp Set onto Distress Watercolor paper using Black Soot Archival Ink. I then watercolored them using Distress Ink and a waterbrush. The Distress Ink colors I used included: Black Soot, Wilted Violet, Twisted Citron, Carved Pumpkin, Gathered Twigs and Antique Linen.


Once the coloring was completed, I fussy cut all the images and added some Glossy Accents to the candy pieces and the glass vial.


You might notice the cats are "holding" what is in their paws. To achieve this, I used a craft knife to carefully cut around their paws so that I could tuck the cany and vial into their paws for them to hold.

Here For The Candy Halloween Slimline Card by Juliana Michaels featuring Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Snarky Cats, Halloween Doodles and Bold Frights Stamp Sets

The sentiments were created using the Bold Frights Stamp Set. I stamped them onto Distress Heavystock with Twisted Citron and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide. To create the outline detail, I used a Sharpie marker and drew the outlines using the stamped letters as my guide and not worrying about it being too perfect.


Before assembling the cards, I added some Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxide to the edges of the hocus pocus card and Wilted Violet to the candy card.


To give the design a bit of dimension, I adhered various parts of the cats and other images with Scrabook.com double sided foam adhesive squares.


I hope you enjoyed learning how these Snarky Cats got a new look for Halloween these season using the Halloween Doodles and Bold Frights Stamp Sets.
