Halloween Cat

Happy Sunday to you!

Diane with you today to share a fun card I created with the new

stamp set ‘Halloween Cat‘.

Halloween Cat

I had an idea for this stamp as soon as I saw it

and hoped it would work…it DID…let me tell how fun and easy

the background moon is to create.

Halloween Cat

I first used a Mini Mister of water and sprayed it on

regular heavy 100# card stock.

I sprinkled Nuance Orange and Bright Yellow

just by tapping the bottom side of the jar .

( I have little holes in each lid that I keep a push in for no spills…

simply easy to remove when I need to use it).

I added more water and more Nuance until I was satisfied with the colors

You can tip your paper to move the colors around,

just be careful not to ‘muddy’ them together.

Set aside to dry completely or use your heat gun as I did.

Halloween Cat

Next is where my creative idea came in to play.

I asked myself if I could emboss over the Nuance

and that is what I did.

Once your paper is completely dry use your

Static Free Pouch to go over your paper

(this eliminates any embossing powder sticking where you don’t want it)

 Ink up your stamp with Versmark

and stamp right over the Nuance colored paper.

Cover with Midnight Madness Embossing Powder,

then heat set.

I then used a circle die to cut out my background moon…

pretty colors aren’t they?

Halloween Cat

I set that aside and die cut a fence.

I coated the fence with Nuvo Glue Pen (large)

then added Lacy Lilac Glitter.

I next punched out a few bats and once again used the Nuvo Glue Pen

then sprinkled on Black Ice Glitter.

Halloween Cat

I also punched out a few pumpkins, added the Nuvo Glue Pen,

then coated with Energized Orange Glitter.

Halloween Cat

The sentiment was stamped in Versamark on a scrap piece

of the left over Nuance paper I created,

then embossed with Midnight Madness embossing powder.

I cut it to look like a sign and hung it on the fence.

Halloween Cat

The backgorund paper is onyx cordinations, embossed with a Sizzix

embossing folder, then sanded.  I used a distress tool around the edges

for a more ‘spooky’ look.

I hope you enjoyed today’s tutorial!

Thank you for visiting with me today!

The Simple Wild Rose

WildRoses2

A rose is one of my favorite flowers and since I am in Omaha right now, visiting with my mother, I am really enjoying all her roses.  She has so many bushes and even climbing roses.  She also has some lovely pink wild roses.  There is something about their delicate look that is so appealing.  I tried to tie that into today’s card featuring the Wild Rose set and simple white layers with elegant lines.

 

WildRoses-Border

I started with a white layer with the right side punched by a border punch.  A piece of sticker paper was layered behind it and Ballerina Velvet Glitter was added.  This was layered on the white card base.

 

WildRoses-CU

The Wild Rose image was stamped with Jet Black StazOn ink on watercolor paper and colored with Zig Watercolor Markers.  The sentiment was stamped beneath the image and this was die cut with a Spellbinders’ Labels Seventeen Etched Die and layered on top of a slightly larger white die cut and added to the card front.  Dots of Sunny Daze Glitter was added to the flower centers, using a glue pen.

 

Along with this lovely floral image, this set comes with four sentiments making it great to use for a variety of occasions.

Gone Fishin’

Hi, Diane with you today and it looks like a good day to ‘go fishin’..lol!

The new May release brought us this super fun ‘Gone Fishin’ stamp set

that is just perfect for the guy in your life,

either for Father’s Day or a birthday!

Gone Fishin'

I first stared with a Memory Box stencil Texture Shine.

Reminded me of a nice sunny morning to fish on the lake.

I applied Dreamweaver’s White embossing paste with a

Dreamweaver Pallete Knife.

I sprinkled a pretty Lemonade glitter on that,

then set it aside to dry.

Once dry I trimmed around the edges and

using  Double Sided Tear-ific TApe 1/4“, I adhered it to a navy blue card stock.

Gone Fishin'

Next, I stamped the image with Versamark, then sprinkled

Cerulean embossing powder on and heat set with my heat tool.

I did the same with the sentiment using the same embossing powder.

Gone Fishin'

I punched an anchor with a MS punch,

added Versamark to it, then coated it with

Super Thick Silver Enamel Embossing powder.

I love the way it made it look like a real anchor.

A tip is to let it set up a few minutes before touching it

as, because it is thick it takes a little longer to dry then

normal embossing powder.

Gone Fishin

I finished by tying the anchor to a piece of twine, liking the ‘pop of red’.

Thank you for visiting with me today!

Give Thanks

Good morning everyone, it’s Belinda here this morning to share a Thanksgiving Card with you!  I pulled out one of my favorite stamp set Harvest Scarecrow for this card.

Harvest Scarecrow #227

I started my background on white cardstock, laying down my brick stencil and covering it with 3d gloss gel.  While the gel was wet I covered it with Red Rock chunky EP (to be available soon).  The gel was left to dry over night and then the embossing powder was heat set.

Harvest Scarecrow

The gloss gel gave the embossing powder a really pretty shine,(hope you can see that in the picture).

The sentiment was stamped with brown ink and punched using a circle punch.  The edges were inked with distress ink.

Harvest Scarecrow #227

Next the image was stamped with black ink and colored using copic markers.  A little sparkle was added to the image using a glue pen and Sparkling Snow glitter.

Thanks so much for stopping by, have a wonderful day!

Winter Wonderland

Good morning everyone, it’s Belinda here this morning to share a bendy card using both the digi and rubber newly released Sleigh Ride stamp set.

The top of each piece of the card base was die cut using Elizabeth Craft Outdoor Edges dies.  This created really pretty snow hills for my card.

Sleigh Ride #744

For the background paper I used the Lacy Background Technique, using sticker paper, Sparkling Snow and Rapture Blue glitter.  The pieces were cut and adhere to the card base.

Sleigh Ride #744

The base for this card was cut and then I added the fence across the front using a svg file.  To added the snowy look on the fence I used White Liquid Applique. While the Applique was wet I applied Diamond Dust to the top.  The Applique was allowed to dry overnight and then was heat set.   The lights were die cut using Elizabeth Craft Holiday House die.  They were glittered using Lady Luck, Sassy Silver and Champagne glitter.

Sleigh Ride #744

The sleigh image was stamped with versamark and embossed using Black Detail EP.

Sleigh Ride #744

The trees from the digi set were enlarged, printed and fussy cut out.  Using a glue pen Sassy Silver glitter was applied to the branches.

The cute little lamp post was cut using svg files.  Glitter was added using Lady Luck, Fire Engine Red, and Evening Glow glitter.

Sleigh Ride #744

The glittery house was die cut from sticker paper.  The backing was removed and each piece was glitter using Fire Engine Red, Sparkling Snow, Lady Luck, and Black Suede.

Sleigh Ride #744

The deer silhouette is a stamp from the Reindeer set.  Small snowflakes were punched using a Fisker punch from sticker paper and glittered using Sassy Silver glitter.

Once all the pieces had been stamped and glitter the fun part was assembling the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by, have a wonderful day!!

Here’s Looking At You!

Hi Everyone! I hope you are enjoying your day. It is designer April again and I want to share a card I made with one of Sparkle N Sprinkle’s new release stamp sets called Glasses 698. These reminded me of the eye glasses my mom and I used to wear in the 50s/60s. My mom had a black pair with clear rhinestones all around the frames and I had a pair of pastel colored frames with glitter in them! I am glad my dad was an optician because he kept me stylin’. LOL! So I had to glam up my glasses on this card with sparkly embossing powders.  I used Flashy Flamingo EP452 Cerulean Star EP433,  Moss Star EP430 and Sparkle EP107.

I could not resist using wiggly eyes! You can see it better here that I used White Liquid Applique around the clouds. I hope you have as much fun with this stamp set as I did!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great and sunshiny day!

Happy Valentine's Day

Hi Everyone! It is April again back with another card to show you. Christmas is just two days away, but I am saying Happy Valentine’s day! LOL! Valentine’s Day will be here before you know it so here is some inspiration to get you started on your Valentine cards. I used the new release stamp set called Love and Kisses 676.

I used an svg cut file and made the pop up hearts inside the card. I used the small hearts cut out from the inside of the card for the pile that the couple is standing on. I used a punch to cut out the large heart. Sparkle embossing powder EP107 was used on all the red hearts. I also used Sparkle embossing powder on the pink hearts that are popped up, but it is hard to see.

The couple image was fussy cut and pop dotted to the front of the card.

Thank you for stopping by. I wish you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas Layout

Good evening everyone, I hope you have had a wonderful crafty weekend and are ready to greet the week with cheer!  Today I have a layout made with some wonderful products from Sparkle N Sprinkle.

My papers are My Mind’s Eye, a collection from a couple of years ago. I pulled some chipboards, flowers and ribbons from my stash to put my layout together.

I applied 2 1/2″ Tear-ific Tape to cardstock, cut my sentiment on my Cameo, applied Japanese Lacquer EP and heat set.

After coloring my large star from Technique Tuesday with Gelatos, I randomly stamped it with the Journal Mixed Media stamp set and VersaMark, and heat embossed with Pear Star EP. The sentiment here is from Camera Life, and I have heat embossed it with Black Detail EP.

I love adding little bits of lace and ribbon to my layouts, and these styles that are new in the shop at Sparkle N Sprinkle are perfect for my style!

To see all the details on this layout, visit My Gallery at Sparkle N Sprinkle.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, and have a wonderful week!

A Friend IS ….

Hi Everyone! It is designer April here again. I want to share with you a card I made with the lovely newly released stamp set Beautiful Friendship 665.  Don’t you just love the saying?

To make the bottom border on my card, I used a border punch on patterned paper from the Authentique paper bundle Grace. I adhered it to Sticker Paper and added Orchid Rose Velvet glitter GM 2016.  I used Balck Detail embossing powder EP171 on the saying. The bling border is Diamond Mesh Black Silver. I love using this because it adds the right touch!

I colored the flowers using copics, pop dotted them for dimension and added Waterscape glitter G1108 for dew drops. For full instructions on how to make this card, please click here.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope your day is wonderful!

Halloween Cuties Layout

Hi Everyone! It’s Designer Anita here today to share a layout with you

using some fun new Halloween Stamps.
I have very few Halloween photos of my little ones, so the ones I do have are so precious to me! They were 3 and 5 here. I have used the new Authentique papers for this layout and I love that little border of witches that I used right behind my photo!
For my title I have used Camera Life and heat embossed it with Concord Star.
I used the Witches Brew stamp set and the same EP for my sentiment. I used Clementine EP on the middle layer of my die cuts. To add a little sparkle to my border I used Purple Rain GL and 1/8″ Tear-ific Tape. For the double layered hexagons, I applied 2 1/2″ Tear-ific Tape to my paper, punched it out, burnished with Cloud Nine GL, and adhered with foam tape.
For my border I did some punching, layering and sewing with my machine.
I used Flourishes 2 in the corner and heat embossed with Detail Black EP.  I added a spritz of silver spray ink.
