Halloween Rosette Wands

Hi there.  I made some fun Halloween wands.  I have made tons of them in the past and they are always so much fun.  I used Darcie’s heart & home stamp set called Bone To Be Wild.  I stamped these images using my Misti, the skeleton needed a lot of ink and my Misti came to the rescue.  I Copic colored just a little on the ghosts headband and cheeks of the images.  I used a scalloped rosette die from My Creative Time and I stamped my cardstock with multiple stamping of the ghost image to make my own background paper.  I put my rosettes together using layers of circles, and cupcake liners.  The process take a bit of time so I would do a little at a time when I had a bit of time.  I added some fun Halloween paper straws, I love decorated straws.  I used a word die from My Creative Time and Alphabet Dies 2 from Jaded Blossom to create my own word.  I popped my images up with foam dots, and added Nuvo drops for decoration.  I also stamped the sentiment on some tiny tag dies from Mama Elephant and tied them to my ribbon with a bow. I’m going to try and send these out to my local friends, in hopes it will make them smile.  Well that finishes my project for today, I hope you like my wands.  Thanks for stopping by!  Now onto some pictures!

Grateful for a Friend Like You!

Hi there.  I made this sweet card using this super cute rubber stamp called Avery with Pumpkin from The Paper Nest Dolls.  I stamped and heat embossed the image and colored her in with my Copic markers.  I stamped and heat embossed the bow again and used foam tape to give it more depth.  I fussy cut her out and die cut this cool stitched heart tag from Katscrappiness using pattern paper from my stash.  I made it a shaker tag and used some Neat and Tangled sequins.  I die cut a label tag from Jaded Blossom and stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from a stamp set called Sea You Soon by My Creative Time.  I used pink cardstock and die cut a rectangle, so I could layer my panel.  I also used foam tape on the image.  Lastly , I added some glitter, sequins, white/black accents, and Nuvo drops.  I hope you like my card.  Thank you for stopping by.

Hi there.  I wanted to share a card that I made with this absolutely adorable stamp/die set from Neat and Tangled called Hello Pumpkin.  This was a collaboration with SSS for their Stamptember release.  I stamped and heat embossed the images and the sentiment.  I colored the images with my Zig markers and water brush.  I used the coordinating dies and fussy cut the leaves.  I added some white gel accents to the images.  I used the Neat and Tangled Scalloped Rectangle dies for my panel and did the ink smooshing technique with Peeled Paint distress oxide and Tea Dye distress ink.  I heat dried my panel and die cut a green larger scalloped rectangle to layer my panel.  I then added foam tape to the bear and glued my other images together to make it easier to add foam tape as a whole image.  I glued the other leaf down with liquid glue.  I added my panels to a A2 top folding card base.  Lastly, I added some sparkling Clear Pretty Pink Posh Sequins.  I hope you like my card for today, thank you for stopping by.

Hi there.  I’m back for another challenge for MFT this one is called Challenge 2: DIE-NAMICS DESIGNS.  I die cut a rectangle A2 size and I used distress inks Seedless Perserves and Picked Raspberry.  I sprinkled some water droplets and dried with a paper towel.  I used the Die-namics word die Celebrate and die cut it two times with heavy weight card stock.  I glued together and placed on my panel where I had die cut it so I could inlay these pieces.  I glued my panel onto a A2 top folding card base and added some glitter and white Nuvo drops.  I hope you like my card, thank you for stopping by.

You Lift Me Up!

Hi there.  I’m back with a card for another MFT challenge 4 called Make & Mail.  I chose to use Up in the Air, I stamped ant heat embossed my images.  Coloring them in with Copic markers and fussy cutting them out.  I wanted a Winter theme look so I distressed a stitched rectangle with a couple of blue inks.  Spritzing it with a few water droplets and drying with a paper towel.  I needed a santa hat so I found a stamp set in my stash and cut to make it fit the bear perfectly.  I had a stamped banner die cut with this sentiment from a project that I didn’t end up using, so it worked out perfectly for my project today.  I used foam tape for my balloon and sentiment banner.  I glued my panels onto a A2 top folding card base.  I added some white gel accents onto my background and images. I also added some stickles to the santa hat where the pom pom is.  Lastly, I added some white Nuvo drops for some snow.  I hope you like my card  Thank you for stopping by.

Hip, Hippo, Hooray!

Hi there.  I’m sharing another card for the MFT Challenge 3 World Card Making Day 2017: By The Numbers.  I chose to use Happy Hippos, I stamped and heat embossed three images.  I then colored them with my Copic markers and fussy cut them all out.  Since I needed numbers for this card, I used the number stamps and coordinating dies from Studio Katia-Kobi the Bear.  I used the stitched Peek a Boo Windows Die-namices for my design along with some MFT Gingham gray paper.  I used distress inks for my layer to show thru the windows. I then sprinkled some water and dried the excess with a paper towel.  I used a stitched banner from Blueprints 28 and stamped and heat embossed the sentiment from the same stamp set.  I glued my panel with my ATG gun onto a A2 side folding card base.  I added some stickeles to the candles and some white accents with my white gelly roll pen.  That finishes my card, I hope you like it.  Thank you for stopping by.

Hi there.  Today, I’m sharing a card that I made for the MFT Challenge 2017:ROYGBIV for World Card Making Day.  I used this fun stamp set called Hog Heaven by MFT.  I stamped and heat embossed the image before coloring with my Copic markers.  I used the MFT Cloud Stencil and various Distress Oxide inks to get the rainbow panel the way I liked.  I spritz some water and dried the excess with a paper towel.  I used a rounded oval rectangle for my die cut from Blueprints 31.  I stamped and heat embossed my sentiments onto a small banner die that came from Blueprints 31.  I popped up my image and sentiment banners with foam tape.  I used Hero Arts Infinity Dies for my layered pink rectangle.  I glued my panels on a A2 side folding card base.  Lastly, I added glitter, nuvo drops on the wings, and scattered Pretty Pink Posh sparkling Clear sequins across my card.  That finishes my card, I hope you like it.  Thanks for taking a look.
