World Cardmaking Day was a week ago and I did manage to make 2 cards but never had the chance to share them. I was playing with my Hello Bluebird stamps to create this Halloween cutie.
I started with stamping and colouring the images from the Halloween Party and Banner Buddies stamp sets. I used COpic markers to add colour and cut them out with their coordinating dies.
The sentiment I die cut from green glitter cardstock using the Oliver Alpha die set and adhered it on a black banner which I created with the Banner buddies stamp set and Vertical banners die. Under it I white heat embossed another sentiment from the Halloween Party stamp set.
To hang the banner I die cut the bar from black cardstock 2 times,adhered them together and coated it with Versamark ink. Then I poured silver embossing powder on it and heat set it. I repeated the process once more for a smooth look. The background is from an MFT patterned paper set, I just added some grey ink splatters to it.
I die cut grass from grey cardstock using the Pond builder die set and adhered the images in place using 3D foam squares. I hid the naughty squirrel behind the banner and added a few green jewels as if he was dropping them in the cauldron. I am giddy over this little joke!
As a finishing touch I added some white gel pen highlights and used a black glaze pen to make the eyes of the critters shiny. A little glossy accent finished it off.
I will upload this card to the following challenges: Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge (Fall/Autumn) and the Simon Says Stamp IG Challenge (Favourite technique – metallic embellishments).
Hope you enjoyed my card and will pop in again tomorrow for more fun!
I must admit that I love to make funny cards because I love to make people smile. Today I am on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog with this cute Halloween card featuring a very spooky ghost and a scared kitty 🙂
I started with stamping and colouring the images from the Witchy Newton and Boo Hoo stamp sets. I used Copic markers to add colour and the coordinating dies to cut them out.
For the background I applied Twisted Citron Distress ink on Bristol Smooth cardstock. Then I used the Cloudy sky stencil and added Mowed Lawn Distress ink. I added more texture with some sprinkles of water.
The sentiment I white heat embossed on a dark grey striped patterned paper with white embossing powder. I also die cut the word Halloween from a Simon Says Stamp set from purple glitter cardstock which I adhered under the embossed sentiment with liquid glue.
I wanted to make it more spooky, so I die cut a spooky fence (Lawn Fawn die) from black cardstock. I adhered the cat with 3D foam squares and popped up the ghost on a mini action wobbler. He is super funny wobbling and scaring the cat!
I stamped a few bats around them with black ink and used my clear shimmer pen to add some sparkle to the ghost and the boot. I added eyes to the bats with a black glaze pen and emphasized the pattern on the boots with glossy accents.
This is my second post today as it is my turn on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog. I love Fall and the nature around us is the best inspiration with all the beautiful colours.
I have recently discovered the Shades of Autumn stamp set and used a bunch of Distress inks to stamp them on cream cardstock in random order. I chose Autumn colours: Mustard Seed, Dried Marigold, Bundled Sage, Gathered Twigs and Aged Mahogany.
The stamp is created in a way that it adds a ton of texture, how beautiful and unique!
Then I used the postage stamp die from Frameworks to cut it down.
I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink on top of the leaves and poured WOW Metallic Gold Sparkle embossing glitter on top and heat set it. I wanted it to stand out more, so i shifted the cardstock bit an stamped the sentiment again with brown ink to create a shadow.
I love the gold sparkle so much that I decided to add some dots to the leaves too. I used an embossing pen to add the dots and the same embossing powder to give them the glittery gold sparkle.
I finished the card with adhering the panel to a top folding kraft card base and tied brown twine around it on the top.
I hope you got inspired by my card and will pop in for something cute tomorrow!
I am here again with a cute treat card for Halloween. I used my favourite design which I love for smaller images: tag on a card. All goodies are from Pink and Main.
I started with stamping the images several times from the Trick or treat stamp set using Versafine Onyx black ink and used clear embossing powder to heat set it. I love the raised edges when I colour with water based markers, as it helps staying within the lines. I used Arteza Brush markers to add such vibrant colours and then I die cut everything with the coordinating dies.
I also white heat embossed the sentiment on black cardstock and also die cut it. I love when sentiments have coordinating dies!
For the tag I chose the Arch tag die set and cut a purple and a black one and layered them on top of each other. Arranged the images and added some candy cane twine.
I started with a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock and used the Cloud stencil to create a spooky sky with Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink. When the clouds were done, I went over the whole panel with Shaded lilac ink to smooth the effect. Then I splattered purple, black and white paint over the whole panel.
On another piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock I sponged Black Soot Distress Oxide ink and added water and diluted black ink splatters. It gave some texture and variation in colour. When it was dry I ran it through my die cutting machine with the Spiderweb cover up die, and layered it on the cloudy background.
I stamped the images from the Your Spell stamp set on Bristol Smooth cardstock and used Derwent Inktense pencils to colour them. This was the first time to try these watercolour-like pencils, the vibrancy is amazing! I moved the colours with a waterbrush. I die cut everything with the coordinating dies.
On a 1 inch wide black cardstock I white heat embossed the sentiment from the Your Spell stamp set and assembled the card.
I added glossy accents to some details on the coloured images and my card was ready.
I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration and you will come back soon for more fun projects! Till next time, happy crafting!
