Best Witches

Hello crafty friends!! Please join me for a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  This week the challenge is

Halloween

We are showcasing My Favorite Things Products this week.  If you have any of these products, we’d love to see them used, but it’s certainly not a requirement to join the challenge. 

As always, the generous folks at Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store.  You can enter 5 times which means you can make 5 different projects following this week’s prompt and have 5 chances to win a shopping spree!! Sounds like a win/win to me!! I’ve linked all of the supplies that I used at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

I can’t believe it’s already almost Halloween!! I’m not ready for the colder weather yet. But it was fun to make a Halloween card this week, before the Christmas cards start pouring out.

I started out on some Bristol Smooth card stock and ink blended Squeezed Lemonade and Barn Door distress oxide inks. I then took the Tim Holtz Stamptember stencil and some Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer paste and went right over the top of my ink blended background. This Stamptember stencil is no longer available, but Tim Holtz has a very similar one called Hocus Pocus.

I decided to splatter some Black Soot distress ink on the back ground for some added interest. I used the Halloween Hill die by Impression Obsession for the silhouette effect but I wanted to use the houses from the Best Witches stamp set by MFT so I just trimmed the house off the die and replaced it with the ghost filled houses.

I copic colored my images and popped the witch up with some foam squares. I heat embossed the sentiment from the Best Witches stamp set in white embossing powder.

To finish off my card, I used a Nuvo Aqua Shimmer pen to add a little glitter here and there. I rounded the top corners and added my design to a top folding black card base. I used the same colors to add a panel to the inside so that a written message could be added. I thought it would be fun to add a few details to the inside with the Trick or Treat stamp set by SSS.

Copic colors used:

Witch: FYG2, YG25, YG23, YG21, V17, V15

Boots: T9, T6

Skin: E000, E00, E1, E13, R20, R30

Hair: E09, E15, E97

Broom: E47, E44, E43

Houses: C7, C5, C4, C3

Roof and door: C9, C6, Chimney N3

  So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!!

Yeti or Not

Hello crafty friends!! Please join me for a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  This week the challenge is

Christmas

We are showcasing Neat & Tangled Products this week.  If you have any of these products, we’d love to see them used, but it’s certainly not a requirement to join the challenge. 

As always, the generous folks at Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store.  You can enter 5 times which means you can make 5 different projects following this week’s prompt and have 5 chances to win a shopping spree!! Sounds like a win/win to me!! I’ve linked all of the supplies that I used at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

My first Christmas card of the season!!! Hopefully not my last…. I always have these high hopes of making gorgeous Christmas cards and sending them out to all of my loved ones, but that hasn’t happened in the last 2 years. I wait too long and then I get too busy. I’m hoping to change that this year!!

I loved this adorable stamp set by Neat and Tangled called Get Yeti. I loved it so much that I decided to make 2 different cards. The 2nd card, I used a stamp set and die from Neat and Tangled called Hello Winter that are now retired, but I didn’t realize that until I was making my product list. I could’ve swore it was just on Simon Says Stamp a week or so ago, and if not, I may be losing it a bit. Retired or not, it still turned out pretty darn cute.

So here’s the 1st card I made:

I haven’t used my Zig Clean Color Real Brushes for awhile so I decided to use them to color my images.

It never photographs well, but I covered my snowman with the Nuvo Aqua Shimmer pen. I added a little Unicorn Dust to the top of his hat.

I added a little Nuvo Crystal Glaze here and there for some added interest.

I used the Distress Resist Spray on my background in hopes it would look like snow. I’m not sure that was achieved, but I still like how it turned out.

Here’s the 2nd card that I made. I used the same method for my background, just different colors.

I really like how these both turned out. That yeti and friends are just so darn CUTE!!

Which one do you like better?

  So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!!

Thinking Pink For My Birthday

Hello crafty friends!! Please join me for a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  This week the challenge is

Think Pink

As October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month we’re helping to highlight the need to be vigilant. If you need to see a Doctor or think its time for a mammogram then please pick up the phone and make the appointment! I know I’m going to!!

We are showcasing Pink and Main Products this week.  If you have any of these products, we’d love to see them used, but it’s certainly not a requirement to join the challenge. 

As always, the generous folks at Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store.  You can enter 5 times which means you can make 5 different projects following this week’s prompt and have 5 chances to win a shopping spree!! Sounds like a win/win to me!! I’ve linked all of the supplies that I used at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

I made a clean and simple card this week, one that can be easily replicated. I think having a few of these in your stash would be nice to have in a pinch. It’s always nice just to have a few “Hello” cards on hand to send a quick note to a friend when you’re thinking of them.

I made this specifically for a friend and love it so much that I’m going to make a few more in a few other colors as soon as I have a couple minutes to spare. No, you know what? Today is my Birthday and I want to make a couple of cards so I’m going to put the laundry aside and do just that today!! I’ve made an executive decision.

I sure hope she likes this card. I enjoyed making it. I LOVE this new stencil that I used. It was part of a Stamptember collab with Tim Holtz and Stampers Anonymous and boy did it sell out fast!! This was one that I had to jump on as soon as I saw it. The stamp set that it came with is really cute!! Maybe I’ll find time to play with that stamp set today as well. I make all of these wonderful plans but my days rarely go as planned.

I’m going to make this again using purples and see how it turns out. I’ll share it with you as soon as I make it.

  So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!!

Wow Embossing Powders are Magical

Hello crafty friends!! Please join me for a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  This week the challenge is

Anything Goes

We are showcasing Crafters Companion Products this week.  If you have any of these products, we’d love to see them used, but it’s certainly not a requirement to join the challenge. 

As always, the generous folks at Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store.  You can enter 5 times which means you can make 5 different projects following this week’s prompt and have 5 chances to win a shopping spree!! Sounds like a win/win to me!! I’ve linked all of the supplies that I used at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

Happy Wednesday, my friends!! I have to say that I had A LOT of fun playing with these Wow Embossing Powders this week. They were absolutely magical to watch melt. I tried to capture a little of it in my video. I’ve used plenty of E.P.’s before and none that were this mesmerizing.

I kept the cards pretty simple so the EP and dies could be the focal point. For this one I used the One Hundred and One embossing powder which is a classic black and white. I thought it paired nicely with this Congratulations die by Crafters Companion.

I love the dies I used this week as well. I can see myself using this Congratulations die for years to come. It’s a great script font and I’m a sucker for any word die with a corresponding shadow or outline die.

The other die I used is called Wave Ribbon Collage from Memory Box. I have Sharon from Uniquelykdesigns to thank for the die and the Black Magic embossing powder (used on 2nd card). I saw a card that she had made on her Instagram account and I knew I had to have both the die and the EP. You should check out her IG account and see what I mean. She’s a very talented card maker.

This gorgeous black card stock is called Onyx Black Pearlescent by Tonic and it was just what this card needed. The second part of the sentiment is from the printed sentiment labels called Sentiment Labels 2 by SSS. Love that you can just cut these and attach to your card.

This lovely black, silver and gold embossing powder is called Black Magic. I used a couple circle dies from SSS Nesting Circles to cut and emboss for some added interest.

I couldn’t decide whether I wanted to do a shaker card or just a window card because these word dies with outlines are perfect for shakers. But I wanted to keep it simple so I decided to just do a window card.

I added a 2nd layer of card stock on the inside so that that acetate wasn’t exposed showing where I glued it. The second part of the sentiment is from the Tiny Words stamp set by SSS. As always, I used the Sentiment Labels die to cut my sentiment in perfect strips and covered the bottom banner with Gold embossing powder.

I finished both cards off with some Nuvo drops in Ebony Black and Simply White.

  So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!!

Get Well Magic Picture Changer

Hello crafty friends!! Please join me for a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  This week the challenge is

Interactive

We are showcasing Lawn Fawn Products this week.  If you have any of these products, we’d love to see them used, but it’s certainly not a requirement to join the challenge. 

As always, the generous folks at Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store.  You can enter 5 times which means you can make 5 different projects following this week’s prompt and have 5 chances to win a shopping spree!! Sounds like a win/win to me!! I’ve linked all of the supplies that I used at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

Nobody does interactive like Lawn Fawn. I’m not gonna lie, I was a little intimidated by this die when I first got it, but Lawn Fawn makes it so easy!! I had so much fun making this Magic Picture Changer.

I used the Get Well Before ‘n Afters stamp set and I went with the turtles. I almost made a whale card, but this turtle was just too cute to pass up.

I kept the copic coloring nice and simple and let the magic picture changer and surroundings steal the spotlight.

So I don’t know Photoshop all that well, but I was able to take 2 pictures and put them side by side so that you can see how it works all at once!

I LOVE the detail stamps that come in this stamp set. These bandaids are adorable!! I made this card for my aunt who just got out of the hospital after finding out she had a really bad kidney infection. They’re sending her home with a drain in her kidney. So scary!! I thought this card would make her smile.

  So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!!

Stamping Bella Mermaid Shaker

Hello crafty friends!! Please join me for a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  

This week the challenge is:

Bling It On

We are showcasing Stamping Bella Products this week.  If you have any of these products, we’d love to see them used, but it’s certainly not a requirement to join the challenge.

All you have to do is take out your crafty supplies, make something following this week’s prompt, and add a link in the Inlinkz at the bottom of this week’s Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. Sounds like a win/win to me!! Good luck to everyone! The Design Team is looking forward to seeing your crafty makes and will pop around to visit you ASAP!

I’ve linked all of the supplies that I used at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

Well I hope everyone is enjoying all of the fun Stamptember goodness that’s been going on so far this month. Starting off with the latest SSS Exclusive Stamptember release. WOW!! If you haven’t seen it yet, click here. And I just saw the new Art Impressions line and I ooh’d and awe’d my way through it. So much cuteness!! I gotta mention the AWESOME collaborations, of course. It’s so hard though because every day there is a new collab, so I don’t want to jump and order the first thing I see, but if you wait, you risk it selling out!! I’m trying to refrain from placing a new order everyday. Can you imagine?!!? I think my hubby would divorce me…

Ok, back to my card that I made for this week’s challenge. I had so much fun making this card. I’m just so excited to be crafting again!! I had to do a little bit of everything for this card. I did some ink blending, stenciling, copic coloring and of course I had to turn it into a blinged out shaker card.

I ink blended Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot distress inks. I used the new Liquid Stardust by Lawn Fawn to splatter my background. What a beautiful product that is. I can see myself using it on many cards. Then I used the Ocean Scene Builder stencil by Honey Bee Stamps. I love that it comes with 4 different stencils!! I used one of the rays stencils from the set with Delicata White Shimmer pigment ink and the 2nd rays stencil from the set with Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer Paste. I cut my window out using a die from the Rounded Rectangles Infinity dies by Hero Arts, making sure I left enough room around the frame for my foam tape. Then I Copic Colored my images.

Next I worked on the acetate. I used Heat Resistant Acetate and white heat embossed a sentiment from the Magical Unicorns stamp set by MFT. I used my Anti-Static Pouch generously to make sure that the embossing powder wouldn’t cling horribly to the acetate.

I used foam tape to build up my shaker window. I decided to use 2 layers of the foam tape because I popped my mermaid up with foam squares so that the sequins would fall behind her, so 2 layers were necessary so that the shaker bits could move around freely.

Doubling up the foam tape like that left more room to see around the background piece or the negative part of my rounded rectangle cut. It was bothering me to see the white card base through the sides of the shaker and around the outer edge of my card (I even tried a black base but I wasn’t satisfied) so I quickly ink blended the same distress ink colors onto my top folding card base so that the the colors would all be cohesive no matter which angle you look at it.

I placed my sequins and jewels inside my shaker and closed it up!

Since this challenge is all about the bling, I decided to add a few Iridescent Bubbles by Studio Katia over the top of some of the bubbles that I heat embossed on the acetate. I absolutely LOVE these bubbles. I think they were that finishing touch that my card needed.

  So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!!
