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 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!
Today I brought you a pair of cards, yummy and juicy, refreshing and motivational, made with the latest release from Newton’s Nook Designs.
I started with stamping the lemon slices from the Lemon Twist stamp set on Ranger Distress Watercolour cardstock with Distress Oxide inks. I used Twisted Citron, Spiced Marmalade and Squeezed Lemonade.
As it dries slowly I had time to pour clear embossing powder over it and heat emboss with a heat gun. I made a bunch of these, coloured them quickly with Tombow markers and used a water brush to move the colours. I love how fast it was and the result is so unique!
Then I worked on the backgrounds. I die cut the scalloped rectangles (Frameworks die set) from Ranger Distress Watercolour cardstock and used the wet-on-wet technique to create a juicy background.
I added some water with a brush, then squeezed some Distress Inks on my craft mat and dropped the colours on the wet area. I dried it with a heat tool and added another layer. I repeated the process with all 3 colours. It really looks like squeezed juice for me 🙂
I stamped the sentiment in black and gave the juicy backgrounds a colourful mat before adhering to a black and white striped patterned paper.
I arranged the leaves and popped up the citrus slices with 3D foam squares.
I finished the cards with some jewels from Lucy’s Little Things and Pretty Pink Posh.
I hope you like today’s inspiration, check back later for some more!
I started with creating the smiley flower: i die cut all the elements of the Stitched Flower frame die from Bristol Smooth cardstock and used Distress inks to add colour to it: Mowed Lawn for the stem and leaves, Picked Raspberry and Spun Sugar for the flower. The middle of the flower I die cut with the Outside in stitched flower and added Squeezed Lemonade distress ink to it.
I also die cut grass with a grassy hillside border die and coloured it with Mowed Lawn Distress ink again.
Then I worked on the background: on a piece of Bristol Smooth paper I applied Blueprint Sketch and Salty Ocean Distress inks, sprayed it with water and dabbed it off with a paper towel. When it was all dry, I die cut it with the Rainy Backdrop portrait die and backed it with silver glitter paper.
I stamped and coloured with Copics the fairies from my favourite stamp set: Fairy friends. I die cut them with the coordinating dies, added some clear shimmer to their wings and a little gem in their buns.
I assembled the scene, adhered everything flat apart from the fairies which I popped up with 3D foam squares, I die cut the Happy birthday border sentiment from white cardstock and the Mom from pink cardstock 2 times and stacked them together.
Out of my million ideas I made this card inspired by the Princess and the frog Disney movie.
First I looked through my Lawn Fawn stash and stamped a bunch of images from Screen Time, Toadally awesome, Wild for you and Critter concert. I coloured them with Copic markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.
To set the night scene I created first an inked background on Bristol Smooth cardstock. I masked off the bottom portion and started with the sky: Black Soot, Blueprint sketch, Wilted Violet and Picked Raspberry. Then I removed the mask and placed it over the sky partition. I used Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch and spritzed it with Tsukineko Shimmer Spritz for a subtle sparkle.
I also cut the Bayou backdrop from dark grey cardstock and inked the leaves with Black Sooth distress ink to give it a dark shading. I adhered the backdrop over the inked piece and arranged the images. Then I stamped a sentiment from Winter skies with black ink. I used one of the tiny dies from the Screen time set to cut a small rectangle and wrote “Tiana’s” on it with a black thin line marker. I added a frame with a gold gel pen.
As embellishment I used some star confetti from Trinity stamps and coloured the trumpet and the crown of the frog with a gold gel pen. I also covered the princess’s dress and crown and dragonflies with a clear shimmer pen.
I love how this card turned out and the sentiment matches the movie perfectly too. Wouldn’t any Disney loving little girl be happy with a card like this?
