Witchy and Friends!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Hallowe’en card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Witchy & Friends – TT019 for the image and Take Flight – HH008 for the sentiment. This little witch and her crew don’t look like they could frighten anyone, but I’m sure they will have lots of fun trying! LOL!

To make my card this week, I began with a card base of Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock, cut and scored to be 4.25″ x 5.5″. I cut the background to be the same size using Doodlebug Design Inc. – Ghost Town patterned paper and adhered it to the base card using double-sided tape. Doodlebug Design Inc. – Hallowe’en Parade patterned paper was cut to the size of 1-7/8″ x 5.5″ and adhered directly to the base background using double-sided tape.

I stamped the sentiment and image using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock. Using my Anna Griffin Empress Mini die-cutting Machine and Hero Arts – Infinity Die Ovals, the image was die cut. A cutter was used to cut around the sentiment. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Villainous Potion and a finger dauber were used to ink around the base card and sentiment. The image was coloured in and then I used a Sakura Glaze – Black pen for the eyes and noses on the characters. Then, I applied a small dot of Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen to the eyes and also to create stars in the night sky. U-Line double-sided tape was added to the back of the coloured image and sentiment and then they were both popped up onto the card. To finish it off, I added some YNS Gumdrops – Pretty Peacock Matte.

Dracula and Friends!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Hallowe’en card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Bat Friends – TT043 for the image and Special Treat – H234 for the sentiment. I can’t believe it’s August already and that means it’s time to get started on Hallowe’en and Fall cards. This is the first of many to come this month.

To make my card this week, I began with a card base of AC Cardstock – White, cut and scored to be 6″ x 6″. I cut the background to be the same size using Craft Consortium – Happy Haunting paper and adhered it to the base card using double-sided tape. Using my Cuttlebug, I die cut the larger piece for the background using the same paper and Penny Black Creative Dies – Antique Frame. I inked around the base card and die cut using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Villainous Potion. Using the same dies, I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and then stamped the image onto it using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink.

The image was coloured in with Copic markers. I stamped the sentiment using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I inked very lightly over the top of it with some purple that I had left on my brush. Then, I inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Villainous Potion. I added U-Line double-sided tape to the backs of all 3 pieces and then popped them up onto the card. To finish it off, I added some YNS Gumdrops – Spellbound.
