If you ever tried one Love Cynthia stamp or digi stamp, most probably you share the addiction I have. The images are super cute, and I could not resist, had to buy the other Halloween digi too.
I printed them on Copic friendly paper and coloured them with Copics. Then fussy cut them out. I stencilled some cobwebs to Bristol Smooth cardstock with Hickory smoke distress ink and cut the panel in half. In this way I had enough materials to make 2 very similar cards.
I die cut a postage stamp frame (Avery Elle) from white cardstock and adhered to the stencilled panel. I stamped the sentiment (SSS set) in black and adhered the images. I covered an A2 sized card base with pretty patterned paper from the Doodlebug Booville collection and popped up the framed piece with 3D foam tape.
I had to do the usual magic: a bit of Spectrum Noir shimmer pen, gold and white gel pens, and glossy accents. I added this to the Boo sentiment too, I love the raised look it gave.
I hope you like my cards, there are still 2 days till Halloween 😉 Come back tomorrow for more fun!
Hope to see you,
I am back today with the second card I created with the adorable digi stamps from Love Cynthia. I used the same set just another image from it.
I started with printing and colouring the cute pumpkin girl with Copics. I fussy cut her out along with the other pumpkin as I wanted her to sit on top of it. I glued them both on a stitched white tag (MFT Tag Builder die) just left a little space in-between for a sentiment. I added orange organza ribbon tied with black-white twine.
I chose a pretty pumpkin paper from the Doodlebug Booville collection and adhered it to a white card base. I die cut 3 stitched stripes from black shimmer paper and laid them across the card. I added a lime green rectangle mat to my tag and popped up a small sentiment (cut out from one of the papers from the Booville paper pad).
A bit of Spectrum Noir shimmer on the pumpkins, black glaze pen on the mouth and eyes and glossy accent on the leaves finished this simple but very cute card design.
I love the way it turned out, I think I will re-make this card with a Christmas scene soon.
I will upload this project to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything goes.
Hope you got inspired and will check back tomorrow for Day 3 of my Halloween series.
I have been busy in the last few days catching up on Halloween cards. Personally I don’t celebrate Halloween, but I love all the cute stamps and dies available. And I also have some crafty friends who celebrate at the end of the month. So I put together a mini series of Halloween cards made in the last minute. Every day from today till Halloween I will post one spooky-cutie card. Hope you will like this and get inspired, it is never too late to make a card 😀
For Day1 I made a card with the newly released digi stamps from Love Cynthia. If you are not familiar with the Happy Girls, you have to check out her website. I printed and coloured the cute witch with Copics, fussy cut it and added some extra details: black glaze pen on the eyes, Spectrum Noir shimmer pen on the hat and dress and some glossy accent on the pompom and broomstick.
I created a simple watercoloured background with a twist I learnt from Jennifer McGuire: after applying the watercolour (Gansai Tambi in my case) I sprinkled it with different types of salt crystals and let it dry. After drying I rubbed off the salt and I was left with a gorgeous textured background.
I die cut a spooky fence from black shimmer cardstock (MFT farm fence die) and a white circle as the moon. I also ran the background through the Big Shot with a stitched rectangle die. Before adhering the moon, I sponged some white pigment ink in the area where I wanted to glue it to get a halo effect.
The sentiment is from a Lawn Fawn set, white heat embossed on a stitched black banner. I mounted this on a white card base.
Relatively simple and fast card, with not many layers.
I hope you like it and will pop in tomorrow again for the next card.
