Tomorrow is Halloween and even though we do not celebrate it here in Hungary, my kids are so excited to put costumes on and go trick or treating in our block of flats. We did that last year too and they had a ton of fun (all kids are under 9 years). For this occasion I made some gift bags to give away with chocolate inside. I used stamps and dies from Pink and Main.
I started with creating purple bags with the Gift Bag die: I cut the base twice and folded at the crease lines which the die created. I used strong tape to assemble it, it is so easy and quick!
I adhered all the images and sentiment after assembling the bag, but it would have been easier to do it before, while it is still flat. I used a bit of clear shimmer on the images and drops of glossy accents. I cannot wait to give these little treats to the kids tomorrow!
Hope you enjoyed today’s post and will check back soon for more inspiration! Till then, happy crafting!
I am back today with a cute Santa card inspired by the current stenciling challenge at Pippi (my favourite Hungarian crafts store).
I created a soft ink blended background with Salty Ocean and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide inks. Then I used the Card Sized Confetti stencil from MFT to add some tone-on-tone stars. I used the other stencil in the set with some Nuvo Shimmer paste to add some sparkly texture too.
Until it was drying I stamped and coloured the images from the MFT Santa and Friends set using Copic markers and cut them out with the coordinating dies.
I also cut some snow slopes from Lawn Fawn white glitter cardstock and adhered it to the bottom of the inked panel.
Finally I white heat embossed a sentiment from the same stamp set on a slim black banner.
As a finishing touch I added some white puff embossing powder to the santa hat and uniform with the help of a clear embossing pen. I used glossy accent on the boots, buttons and saddle and added some white gel pen highlights.
I hope you liked my card today and will pop in again soon for more fun projects. Until next time, happy crafting!
I was so happy to learn that Heffy Doodle has now their own challenges! YAY! It inspired me to create this Fall card for someone special.
I stamped and coloured images from the Hootiful and Veggie Patch stamp sets using Copic markers. I cut everything out with their coordinating dies.
I wanted a simple yet stunning night sky as the background for these cute owls. I masked off a circle on a white top folding note card and sponged Blueprint Sketch, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot Distress Oxide inks with a blending brush. I added some water droplets, some diluted blue and black ink splatters and also a sprinkle of Lawn Fawn Liquid Stardust. It gives amazing shimmer, like real stars! I love it!
After removing the mask I added a little bit of Iced Spruce Distress Oxide to the moon. I also die cut grass from black cardstock and sponged some white pigment ink for a foggy look.
I adhered the images flat to the card and popped up only 2 owls with 3D foam squares. I white heat embossed a sentiment on black cardstock and added them at an angle to the card. Finally I used a black glaze pen on the eyes and glossy accents on the beaks.
Then I cut a 2 inches wide strip of chevron patterned paper and matted it with orange cardstock. I adhered it to the middle of a black card base.
I die cut a stitched banner from blue cardstock and a small one from green and layered them on top of each. I heat embossed a sentiment from the Fall Sentiment stamp set on purple cardstock and assembled the banner.
After popping up the hedgehog with 3D foam squares and adding some orange glossy dots to the small banners, I felt there is something missing, so I stamped the Boo! sentiment in black above the little critter.
A bit of black glaze pen on the pumpkin and a drop of glossy accent on the stem finished it off.
I hope you enjoyed this simple design and will return soon for more.
Iam back today with another Halloween cutie inspired by and made for the Lawnfawnatics Challenge #62 – last minute as always. All stamps and dies are from Lawn Fawn.
I started with ink blending a spooky sky background: I used Bristol Smooth cardstock and Peacock Feathers and Black Sooth Distress inks. I spritzed it with water and added some Peacock Feathers, Black Sooth and White acrylic paint splatters for a textured feeling.
I also added Twisted Citron Distress ink on another piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock, die cut some grass with the Grassy Border and a Simple Grassy Hillside border. I added some Black Sooth Distress ink to the bottom to make it more fitting the mood.
Then I stamped a bunch of images from Booyah, Pick of the Patch and Happy Haunting sets,coloured them with Copic markers and cut them out with their coordinating dies.
After assembling the scene I white heat embossed a sentiment from Pick of the patch on a thin strip of black cardstock and adhered them flat to the card.
I covered the cute ghosts with clear shimmer and added a bit of glossy accents to the roofs, stems and costumes to make them extra special.
For the background I chose a pretty foiled night sky from the Galaxy paper pad, cut it down to cover the front of an A2 sized card. I added a thin strip of dark grey cardstock to the bottom and adhered the corner web too. Then I popped up the bear with 3D foam squares.
I white heat embossed a sentiment and added 3 cute little spiders (Doodlebug stickers). That is the only embellishment I used on this cute and simple Halloween card.
I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration an will pop in again soon! Till next time, happy crafting,
We reached the last day of the Holiday Release reveals at Newton’s Nook Designs, but don’t be sad, the sweetest we saved for last. I was dreaming of a stamp set with a kitty family for long and now my wishes came true! The Newton’s Christmas Kittens is the perfect family stamp for the holidays. And the 2 minis are just create easy and fantastic tags!
For my card I stamped and coloured the image with Copic markers and die cut it with the coordinating die. I created santa hats to all the cats and dressed them up for the holiday.
I die cut a stitched rounded rectangle die from the Frames and flags die set from white cardstock and used the same die to cut a piece of green patterned paper for the bottom of it.
I adhered the cats and stamped the sentiment in red on the top left corner. It is one long sentiment but with partial inking I managed to stamp it in 2 rows.
For the background I chose a golden foiled patterned paper from my stash and popped up the focal panel with 3D foam squares at an angle. It is more playful this way.
I felt I needed something in the right upper corner too,so I white heat embossed another sentiment on a small rounded tag die from the Tag times two die set, which I die cut from gold cardstock. I added a red bow on the top so it looks like a Christmas ornament.
The finishing touches I couldn’t leave behind, a lot of clear shimmer was applied on the presents and glossy accents on the ribbon.
To make it super fun, I used a Marvy Snow Marker on the caps and puffed them up with my heat tool. I love the texture!
I cut the base from patterned paper (Doodlebug) and from vellum.
On the vellum I adhered a small snowbank cut with the Land border die from white glitter cardstock. I silver heat embossed the sentiments on the vellum directly.
To embellish the tags, I cut a scalloped topper from red cardstock and a white reinforcer. I attached the two tags together and used chunky red twine to finish them.
Of course glossy accents I had to add to the presents and I also used some glitter on the santa hat.
