Halloween Card

I have a fun card I created using the new Fa-Boo-Lous Halloween Stamp & Thin Cuts.

I started by using our Stencil Sheets to cut a circle. Next I sponged the blues and purples on the background leaving the center for the moon. Then I reversed and covered the blues and purple and sponged the moon. I then added a few of the clouds which I hand cut. I stamped the sentiment in Black Pigment and then used Clear Embossing Powder.

I then sponged a second circle like the moon and cut it using the Shaker Window Thin Cuts. I then used the Loose Gold Sequins.

The letters and binder clip stamp are from the Give Thanks stamp set. I stamped the letters using Versamark and then used Copper Embossing powder. I used Paprika and Hawthorn for the base. I added a bit of the Sangria Ribbon. The outdoor sky effect was accomplished by sponging Carolina and Pebble inks onto Daisy White.

I wanted to create another window type scene and use our new Create with Creativity Cricut Collection. I used the folded trees and the tis the season cuts. I copied an idea from Miss. Carrie’s Creations, she used the cut as a stencil. I did the same and sponged Bluebird and Carolina inks on Daisy White Cardstock. I then used the Stitched Rectangle Thin cut to cut out the sponged image. I added a bit of gold with the Stickles on the stars and in the circles on the trees. I also added a bit of Gold Embellishing Thread to the clip.

Sympathy Card

Earlier this month my Aunt and Uncle lost their horse. She was 31 1/2 years old and had been theirs for 26 of those years. I know loosing a family member is always hard so I wanted to create a special sympathy card for them.

I used a retired woodgrain paper for the base. I then stamped the horse which is from Homegrown Stamp Set (also retired). I used my water colors to water color the horse and background. I matted it on Evergreen cardstock and added a bit of retired Whisper twine.

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop!

This month we are focusing on It’s in the Script.   With the release of our the idea book came a brand new product line ~ Melissa Eplsin penmanship guide and her own stamp sets!!  I have always wanted to learn how to do cool penmanship as like most people, I am super critical of my own. While I have great intentions to practice with this guide, I have now made the time that I have wanted. Now that my son is back in school I should be able to find the time. This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork. If you are coming from DARLYS RECKER’S Blog, you are on the right track!

I made a card about a month ago using the cool chevron technique that Close to My Heart shared. You can find my original card HERE along with the link to what Close to My Heart shared. I had a lot of the zig-zags left over so I cut a few new colors with Goldrush, Green Apple and Lemonade to make it more Halloween inspired. I then used the Months by Melissa Esplin stamp set to stamp October. I used Black Pigment Ink and then used Clear Embossing powder. The hat is from Fa-Boo-lous Halloween stamp set and thin cuts. I added a bit of bling with Silver Stickles on the buckle of the hat and a few loose Silver Sequins.
