Halloween Treat bags – Pink and Main

Hello Everyone,

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!

As decoration I used copic coloured images from the Your Spell stamp set, which I cut out with the coordinating dies.

I also heat embossed the sentiment from the Trick or treat stamp set with white embossing powder on black cardstock and cut it out with the coordinating die too. I love the shadow!

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!

Hello Pumpkin!

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.

I will upload this project to the Heffy Doodle Challenge (Fall), to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge (Fall colours) and to the Simon Says Stamp IG Challenge (Favourite technique).

I hope you enjoyed today’s card inspiration and will pop in again tomorrow for more fun!

See you,

Boo! – Pink and Main

Hello Everyone,

I am here with yet another Halloween cutie which shows you a good example how to use a small image as the focal point on a card. The product I used to make this card are from Pink and Main.

I stamped and coloured the cute hedgehog from the Less tricks stamp set using Copic markers. I cut it out with the coordinating die.

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.

See you,

Boo – Happy Halloween – Lawnfawnatics #62

Hello Everyone,

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.

I will upload this project to the Lawnfawnatics #62 challenge just as well as to the Simon Says Stamp IG challenge and SSS Wednesday Challenge Halloween.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration and will return soon for more fun!

See you,

Clean and simple Halloween

Hello Everyone,

While my blog was all in Christmas mood this week, today I wanted to give you another quick and easy Halloween card idea. This cute card was made with goodies from Pink and Main.

I stamped the cute bear from Less Tricks on white cardstock and coloured him with Copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut him out.

I also die cut a corner web from black cardstock.

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,

Boo – Be very afraid!

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!

See you,

Interactive Halloween card

Hello Everyone,

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.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card and you will join me tomorrow again for more Halloween fun! This card I will upload to the SSS IG Challenge as stenciling is on of my favourite techiques. Also to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Fall/Autumn.

See you soon,

Zsofi
