Tupelo Designs LLC - Day of The Dead

Happy Friday!  Hope my skeleton lady friend didn't scare you!  I guess I'm revealing a side of me that you weren't familiar with today.   While my blog is most often flowers and pinks and blues today I'm going all goth on you!  I've been a big fan of horror and sci fi since I was a little kid.  On weekends we'd get to stay up late and watch "Creature Features".    As I got older that morphed into other favorite shows.. The Night Stalker, X Files, and more recently The Strain and The Walking Dead.  When I saw these Tim Holtz Day of the Dead Stamps in Tupelo Designs LLC store I knew I just had to have them. 
These are really detailed images so I stamped them with Versafine Ink to give a crisp clean impression. 

Just my opinion here.. but my favorite scary images are more gothic.. haunted mansions and and specters in long flowing gowns.    This beautiful frame from Waffle Flower made me think of vintage lace.  Cut in black card stock and mounted on white it is really striking. 
I think this stamp looks amazing very clean and simple too - this is just stamped on the front of a card base in Versafine Tuxedo Black Ink.   It almost looks letter pressed.
And now for our ladies sweetheart...
And again.. the very clean version....
Did you notice the stamps are two different sizes?  The stamp set includes 4 stamps - one small and large version of each stamp.  The framed ones are the smaller size, and very clean and simple are the larger version.

These would be really easy to mass produce for Halloween.  I can see them stamped on treat bags, used for invitations or even put in a fancy frame to decorate!

I hope you'll give Tupelo Designs LLC store a try!  They have really quick shipping - and it's always free - no coupon code required.  They also offer customer loyalty points that turn into dollars that you can use on future purchases.  Every shipment is a treat to receive - always wrapped beautifully so nothing is damaged and there's even a little gift for you inside!
