Today I’m sharing a card I made with Newton’s Nook Main Street Christmas stamp set.
For this card I used some Hero Art’s reactive ink for the background and sprinkled some water on it to get the effect that I love.
I stamped the image and then colored it with copic markers. I wanted something really colorful, kind of like those beautiful Victorian homes that are painted in such lovely colors.
I used the matching dies to cut out the image and then adhere it to the background. I then stamped Santa and his sleigh and the sentiment with verse mark ink. I then embossed it with clear embossing powder.
The weather has finally changed and things have cooled down, so it feels like fall now! Yesterday my girls and I went to the pumpkin patch for our yearly tradition of picking out pumpkins. It was a beautiful day and we had a lot of fun.
Its been a busy time so I haven’t blogged much about the cards that I have been making. So here’s one that I worked on the other day.
This is a Halloween box card that I made using “Halloween Hoo” by MFT stamps. I love these little owls!
I used the A2 box card die from Echo Park to make the box and used some of MFT’s Halloween papers to decorate it. Then I stamped the images and colored them with copic markers.
I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and then attached them to the box.
I think it came together quite well. I don’t know why I don’t make more of these box cards as I think they are very unique and usually turn out very cute.
I hope you are well and enjoying nice fall weather.
Its finally cooled down a little for a few days but it’ll warm up again by the middle of the week. It really doesn’t feel like we are almost in October but Im still enjoying making Halloween cards. This one is a slimline card.
As always, I stamped my images and then cut them with the coordinating dies. I don’t always have the matching dies as sometimes I can’t afford to buy them. In that case I just fussy cut the images, something I don’t like to do but I do it anyway to get the effect I’m looking for. This time I was happy to have the matching dies.
After cutting the images I colored them with copic markers. I don’t have a big selection of markers but thats okay, I am usually able to make it work.
I used Whimsy stamps Slimline Marquee die for the top layer. I cut some Halloween cardstock and then used foam tape to give it some dimension. I used Trinity stamps Stitched card panels and windows for the next layer which I cut from some starry night cardstock and then for the last layer I used some bat cardstock and cut it so I left a 1/8th of an inch border around the card base.
I then added the sentiment “Happy Halloween to finish it off. I love slimline cards, it gives you so much more space to work with.
This card was inspired by my granddaughter who just turned 5 the other day.
When she was up here visiting the other week, we were in the yard playing and she picked a dandelion. I told her she should make a wish before she blew on it. Her wish was “I want to be a Princess already”!! So I had to make her a princess card for her birthday.
I stamped the image and colored it with copic markers. I then cut it out with a decorative die from MFT. I layered princess themed papers from Echo Park and finished it off with an enamel heart from Doodlebug.
I love how girly it turned out and I hope it made her feel a little bit like a princess already!!
I’ve really been into making cards using dies lately. This one is using a snowman die from Cottage Cutz.
This was a more simple card to put together. I cut the dies with white cardstock and colored them with copic markers.
I layered all of the pieces together, which was pretty easy. I added some highlights with a white gel pen and added some dots to the scarf.
I used some cute patterned paper for the background and then stamped the sentiment “There’s snow one like you”. I adhered everything to a white cardbase and added a little enamel heart to finish it off.
