Open If You Dare!!


Sharing a Hallowe’en card I made today using these adorable images from 2CuteInk – Hallowe’en Animals Digital Stamp Set. Hallowe’en is one of my favourite times of the year when we get to see all of the little one’s all dressed up and having fun!

For the base card, I used Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. and cut it and scored it to be 8.25″ x 3.25″. I die cut Stampin’ Up – Magic in this Night Designer Series Paper using my Couture Creations – Go Power and Emboss and Whimsy Stamps – Slimline Pillows Die – WSD473. This was used for the main background. I used the same die-cut again for the inserts, only this time I used Doodlebug Design Inc. – Ghost Town paper and also die-cut the sentiment. I glued the main background to the base and used Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Dusty Concord to ink around all of the outside edges and around each of the shapes. For the sentiment, I used my Blending brushes and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Twisted Citron to colour it and ink around the edges. Each of the shapes were glued and placed into their corresponding places.

The images and sentiment were imported into Microsoft Word and then printed out onto onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my printer and HP Printer High Quality Grayscale for the setting. This prevents them from smearing when colouring. My Brother Scan and Cut was used to die cut the images leaving a small white border. The images were coloured in with Copic markers and then popped up using 3M double-sided tape onto the card.

Welcome Little One!


It’s Wednesday, and this week I used Stretch – R081 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Welcome Little One Script – F239 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. This little giraffe is so adorable and sure to warm someone’s heart.

I decided to keep the card simple this week and stamped and coloured the image and then fussy cut around it. I layered all of the layers, except for the base with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. I edged around all of the die cuts with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Rasberry. To finish off the card I added in a few hearts. The card base is 4.25″ x 5.5″.
