Jack O’Lantern Gnome!!


Today I’m sharing  Jack ‘0 Lantern Gnome (KLM Digital Designs) image from the October release. This adorable little Gnome comes with 3 different sentiments. One of them, I have used here. The others are “Have A Gourd Time” and “Pumpkin Kisses and Harvest Wishes”.

I printed out the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image and coloured it in with Copic markers.  The sentiment was printed out on orange cardstock. I cut the sentiment and then inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Carved Pumpkin.

For the domes, I used Bella Blvd – Spooktacular and Recollections – Purple Passions paper. I die cut them using my Cuttlebug and Sizzix – Rounded Tags. For the main background paper, I cut it to 6″ x 6″ to fit the base of my card. I adhered it to the base using double-sided tape. All of the cuts were then inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Dusty Concord using a sponge dauber.

To assemble the card, double-sided tape was used to attach the purple dome. The pumpkin dome, gnome and sentiment were all attached using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape..

I Don’t Bite….Usually!!


Today I’m sharing  Vampire Gnome (KLM Digital Designs) image from the October release. This adorable little Gnome comes with 5 different sentiments. Two of them, I have used here. The others are “2020 Sucks”, “Bats About You” and “Don’t Let These Times Drain You”. I love this little gnome and with these fun sentiments, there are so many different cards that you can make.

I printed out the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image and coloured it in with Copic markers.  I added some Clear – Wink of Stella to the stars, moon and coloured squares on his hat and gown. The sentiments were printed out on orange cardstock. I cut them and then inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Spiced Marmalade.

For the oval, I used Echo Park – I Love Halloween paper and die cut using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Scalloped Stitched Oval Dies. I also, used this paper on the top and bottom of my card. For the centre background, I used To Every Season – Stampin’ Up paper. I used some double-sided tape to join the top paper with stars to the haunted house background. Then I cut the background to 5.25″ x 4″ and inked around all of the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Black Soot. I also used the same ink to go around the edges of the oval.

To assemble the card, I began with an orange card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ by using a pre-cut card by The Paper Studio – Primary Base Colours. The edges were all inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Black Soot. The background was adhered to the base using double-sided tape. The image, sentiments and oval were both popped up using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. Finally, some Recollections Bling Stickers were added as embellishments to finish off the card.

Pumpkin Kisses!!


Today I’m sharing  Pumpkin Girl (KLM Digital Designs) image from the October release. This little lady has her pumpkin all picked out for Thanksgiving. Now she can make some pumpkin pies and then carve out the pumpkin for Hallowe’en. Here in Canada, we celebrate our Thanksgiving this weekend. So Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! Hope you have a wonderful holiday!

I printed out the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image and then fussy cut it in a few places. It was then coloured in with Copic markers. The sentiment was printed out on plain white cardstock and then I fussy cut around it, in order to spread it out. Then I ran it through my Xyron Create a Sticker and attached it to some black cardstock. Then I fussy cut around it again.

The backgrounds were die cut with my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies Layers. The printed background was then inked around all of the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Carved Pumpkin.

To assemble the card, I began with a white card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″. The 2 background pieces were adhered to the base using double-sided tape. The image and sentiment were both popped up using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. Finally, some Kraftin’ Kimmie – Krafty Dots were added as embellishments.
