halloween_2018_FB

Hello Everyone,

Only a few days left till Halloween, and after the shaker card of yesterday I brought you another special one today featuring goodies from Simon Says Stamp. It glows in the dark, yay! But let’s start at the beginning!

HalloweenCardSeries_SSS_zsm01IG

I stamped the Spider Web Background with Clear embossing ink on Bristol Smooth cardstock and heat embossed it with Black sparkle embossing powder. Then I sponged Mowed Lawn, Twisted Citron and Shaded Lilac distress oxide inks.

HalloweenCardSeries_SSS_zsm02

I stamped the images from SSS Trick or Treat stamp set, coloured them with Copic markers and cut them out with their coordinating dies.

HalloweenCardSeries_SSS_zsm03

Then on a piece of Slate grey cardstock I stamped the slime image few times next to each other till it covered the width of the panel. I used Clear embossing ink for this and heat embossed it with WOW Glow in the dark embossing powder.

I die cut the word Halloween (from the Trick or treat coordinating die set) from Lavender cardstock 2 times and adhered them on top of each other. On a tiny piece of green cardstock I stamped the word Happy.

HalloweenCardSeries_SSS_zsm04

I assembled the card and popped up the imaged with 3D foam squares. I stamped a few bats in the background and a little spider under the slime using black ink. A bit of Tonic Aqua shimmer pen , white gel pen dots, black glaze pen on the yes and glossy accent on the nose of the cat finished it off.

I will link this project to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge (Halloween/Spooky).

I hope you enjoyed today’s Halloween inspiration and will pop in again tomorrow for another cute one!

See you,

Halloween Card Series 2018 – Day 6

halloween_2018_FB

Hello Everyone,

I am back with the 6th Halloween card in a raw…I hope you enjoy my series and getting in the mood for Halloween.

HalloweenCardSeries_PPP_zsm01IG

Today I want to show you cute shaker card made with Pretty Pink Posh stamps and dies.

HalloweenCardSeries_PPP_zsm02IG

As always I stamped and coloured the images from the PPP Halloween Pals stamp set first, then cut them out with their coordinating dies. I die cut a stitched rectangle from black cardstock and then I ran it through the Big Shot with PPP Stitched Pieces die. I die cut another stitched rectangle from light green cardstock as the backing for my shaker.

HalloweenCardSeries_PPP_zsm03

I temporarily placed the black frame on top of the green rectangle to see where I should stamp the sentiment. After stamping it in black, I added a piece of acetate to the back of the frame, and used Darice thin 3D foam strips to create the shaker.

HalloweenCardSeries_PPP_zsm05

I filled it with a sequin mix from Lucy’s Little Things (that is the only Halloween mix I own, what a shame!) Then I removed carefully the backing of the foam strips and adhered the backing.

HalloweenCardSeries_PPP_zsm04

I cut a piece of patterned paper from the Doodlebug Booville paper pad to cover an A2 sized card and adhered the shaker to it. I added the cute images around, added some white gel pen details, covered their hats with Tonic Aqua shimmer pen and used glossy accents to emphasize some parts of the images.

I will link this project to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge  and Wednesday Challenge (Halloween/Spooky).

I hope you liked today’s inspiration and you will come back tomorrow for something new!

See you,

Halloween Card Series 2018 – Day 5

halloween_2018_FB

Hello Everyone,

Halloween is just around the corner, but I still have so many card ideas to share! I wish I could just stop the time and craft craft craft…

HalloweenCardSeries_PFS_zsm01IG

Today I brought you a quite simple card idea. I fell in love with this cute ghost by Picket Fence Studios, so it ended up in my cart when I was shopping at Simon Says Stamp during STAMPtember. I could not let the Halloween season pass without using this stamp. So I just coloured it with Copics bearing in mind the Reverse Confetti Abundant Autumn patterned paper I chose as a background. I love to match my colouring to the patterned paper I use.

HalloweenCardSeries_PFS_zsm03

After fussy cutting the image, I used a black Memento marker and went over the edges of the cut image to make it look like it was perfectly cut (even if it wasn’t).

HalloweenCardSeries_PFS_zsm02

I used an MFT stitched rectangle die to cut a piece from the patterned paper and adhered it to a slate grey note card. Then I used the MFT Linked Chain Oval Frame die to cut a black and a pink piece and layered them on top of each other. I adhered it to the card base too and popped up the ghost with 3D foam tape.

HalloweenCardSeries_PFS_zsm04

Then I heat embossed with white detail embossing powder a sentiment from the SSS Handwritten Halloween stamp set on Olive cardstock and cut it with the coordinating die. I just love this sentiment set so much! I used liquid glue to adhere it too on the bottom of my card.

HalloweenCardSeries_PFS_zsm05

As embellishment I used some clear star sequins and a white gel pen to add details to the ghost. I also covered it all with Tonic Aqua shimmer pen and added glossy accents to the pink stripes on his hat.

I will link this project to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge  and Wednesday Challenge (Halloween/Spooky).

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

See you,

Halloween Card Series 2018 – Day 4

halloween_2018_FB

Hello Everyone,

I am back today with the 4th Halloween card in my Halloween Card Series. It is all about cute owls from Clearly Besotted. I told you, I am into cutie but not spooky 😀

HalloweenCardSeries_CB_zsm01IG

I stamped and coloured the owls from the Clearly Besotted Whoo to you stamp set. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

HalloweenCardSeries_CB_zsm03

I created a stencilled background on a top folding white card base, using the Delicate Web stencil from Memory Box with Iced Spruce and Black Soot Distress Oxide inks and a stencil brush. I wanted a softer look, that is why I used the brush instead of the foam applicator.

HalloweenCardSeries_CB_zsm02

The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp Handlettered Halloween, embossed in white on black cardstock. I used the coordinating die to cut this out and adhered it to a striped patterned paper from the Doodlebug Pumpkin Party paper pad. I added a thin strip of glitter paper on the top of this and matted it with black cardstock before adhering it to the background.

HalloweenCardSeries_CB_zsm05

I popped up the owls with 3D foam squares, and added glossy accents to their eyes. In the last moment I decided to stamp a few bats in the background and also some additional sentiments from the Whoo to you stamp set. I love how those little added texts became part of the design.

HalloweenCardSeries_CB_zsm04

I will link this project to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge  and Wednesday Challenge (Halloween/Spooky).

I hope you like this card and will pop in again soon for the next one! There is still time till Halloween 😀

See you,

Halloween Card Series 2018 – Day 3

halloween_2018_FB

Hello Everyone,

How do you like my Halloween Card Series so far? I wish you enjoyed Day 1 and Day 2. Today I brought you a long card, which I have never done before. I usually stick to the standard A2 size, but I could not decide on which images to use from the Lawn Fawn Costume Party stamp set, that is why I needed a larger format 😀

Lawnfawnatics39_zsm01

The card itself is very simple. I stamped and coloured the images with Copic markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

Lawnfawnatics39_zsm03

Then  I made my card base from white cardstock and cut a strip of black glitter paper from the Lawn Fawn Autumn Sparkle Cardstock pack. I matted it with green and purple cardstocks for interest and stamped almost all the sentiments from the Costume Party stamp set in one line using black ink.

Lawnfawnatics39_zsm06

I popped up the images with 3D foam tape, embellished them with a Tonic Aqua Shimmer pen and glossy accents here and there. It turned out so cute! These images are adorable!

Halloween Card Series 2018 – Day 2

halloween_2018_FB

Hello Everyone,

I am back today with a one layer card as the second in my Halloween Card Series this year. I used my favourite Halloween stamp set from Newton’s Nook Designs called Newton’s Boo-tiful night. They have recently launched coordinating dies too, which are fantastic!

cat lovers blog hop

Today is a special day as Janis at Her Peaceful Garden starts her yearly Cat Lovers Hop! More info on this on her blog. Newton’s Nook Designs is sponsoring this event with a 25 USD gift certificate to a randomly drawn winner. All you need to do is to link up a cat-themed project till Saturday 27th Oct to Janis’s blog.

NND_Prize25

I started with stamping and colouring the kitty on the broom with Copic markers. The coordinating die cuts that little hole above the tail of the cat, such a gorgeous little detail!

NND_CatLoversHop_zsm01

Then I made a circle mask from masking paper and adhered it to a top folding heavy weight white note card. I sponged Wilted Violet distress ink around the circle with a very light hand. Before removing the mask, I added some purple and black splatters.

NND_CatLoversHop_zsm04

After removing the mask I made the harsh line of the moon a bit softer using Milled Lavender distress ink. I also added a bit of texture with grey Copics. Then I used the Bats stencil from Newton’s Nook Designs and black soot distress ink to add a bunch of flying bats.

NND_CatLoversHop_zsm02

I stamped a sentiment from the Handwritten Halloween stamp set from Simon Says Stamp using black ink. I popped up the kitty with 3D foam squares and added a sprinkle of purple sequins and silver star confetti. A little glossy accent on the hat and some dots on the cheeks with a white gel pen finished off this one layer card.

I hope you like today’s inspiration and you will pop in again tomorrow.

Halloween Card Series 2018 – Day 1

halloween_2018_FB.jpg

Hello Everyone,

After last years success and feedbacks, I have decided to have a last minute Halloween Card Series this year too. Just to get you in the mood 🙂 I don’t make really scary cards, rather “not too spooky but rather cute”. I hope you will enjoy it!

My first card in the series features Pink and Main stamps, dies and stencils. I used older products but they are still available in the Pink and Main online store. I love to go back to enjoy and rediscover my stamps and dies.

P&M_Halloween_zsm01IG

For my Halloween card I stamped and coloured the images from the Witch House stamp set. It is so whimsical, I really enjoyed using unrealistic colours. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. It makes the edges so rounded, I could never achieve that with scissors!

P&M_Halloween_zsm05

I wanted a dreamy background for my scene, so I used Wilted Violet Distress Oxide with the Clouds stencil to make a night sky on a top folding white card base. I added purple, black and white splatters when I was done and spritzed it all with a clear shimmer mist. We can never have enough sparkle, can we?

P&M_Halloween_zsm06

I also die cut a piece of patterned paper from the Not too spooky paper pad using the Stitched Scallop waves die set, and backed it with a black wavy piece. I white heat embossed a sentiment on it.

P&M_Halloween_zsm03

I assembled the scene using liquid glue and 3D foam squares. I also stamped an additional 2 sentiments in black, it adds to the background and makes the scene complete. As final touches, I used a clear shimmer pen and glossy accents to emphasize some details. I also added some funny Eerie eyes from Doodlebug to the frog, and mini google eyes to the poisonous pot. Instead of doing the same with the bats, I simply used a black glaze pen to make their eyes shining.

P&M_Halloween_zsm02

I hope you got inspired and you will dig your stash and re-visit older sets. See you tomorrow!
