Seeing Ghosts

#stampinup   #faithfulinkspirations   I've learned a great many stamping tips (and some life hacks) from my friend, Lydia Fiedler.  She's an amazing person and an amazing artist!  You should follow her blog--you'll learn so much and you'll laugh so hard!

Lydia taught me to take a new package of Framelits and cut out all the images (without the associated stamps) and see what the shapes might bring to your mind.  You can do the same thing with builder punches with all their various shapes.  For example, Lydia saw seashells in the Blossom Builder Punch.  Well, I saw an iconic shape in one of the Frozen Treats Framelits!  See for yourself!

Aren't they just the cutest?! IKR?!  You know the ghost characters have names, right?  So I made Bashful (aka Inky) in Tempting Turquoise, Pokey (aka Clyde) in Tangerine Tango, and Shadow (aka Blinky) in Real Red.  I used the Owl Builder Punch for their eyes, which I adhered using glue dots.  I used a Project Life Journaling Pen to draw in their eyes.

PacMan is made from Daffodil Delight with the 1-3/8" Circle Punch.  His eye is also a piece from the Owl Builder Punch.  I used a Layering Square Framelit to make his mouth, like this.

I stamped the sentiment from the "Cool Treats" stamp set in Versamark onto a 4" by 5-1/4" Basic Black mat, sprinkled on some White Stampin' Emboss Powder and set it with my Heat Tool.  The ghosts are adhered directly to the card stock; PacMan is adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals.  The black mat is adhered to a Real Red card base.

For a finishing touch, I added three Daffodil Delight stars from the Brights Enamel Shapes pack.  So cute!!
