It finally feels like fall!

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.

See you next time!

Halloween slimline card

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.

I hope this finds you well. See you next time!

Best Witches!

This card features the stamp set from MFT called “Best Witches”.

I did some ink blending on a piece of Strathmore Smooth cardstock using some distress oxide inks. I then splattered some water on it. Once that was done I left it to dry while I colored my images.

I colored them with copic markers and then cut them out with the coordinating dies.

I cut a piece of black cardstock for the road and stamped “best witches” on there with some white embossing powder. I then attached it to the card with some foam adhesive to give it some dimension.

I arranged the other images on the card adding some foam adhesive to the witch to keep her level with the road.

I love how it turned out

Unfortunately I think this stamp set has been discontinued but you can find other cute stamp sets at http://mftstamps.com.

Halloween RV card!

I came across this die from Cottage Cutz the other day and I had to have it! We love our family vacations in our RV every year and so this was right up my alley!

There are a lot of tiny pieces in this die and I cut everything out in white cardstock and then colored it with copic markers.

It took a while to piece everything together but I think it was worth it. I did make a few mistakes that I will correct when I make it again but I don’t think they are that noticeable.

Next time I will cut it in different colored cardstock and see how that looks but I like how it turned out with the coloring.

I layered some patterned paper together and then adhered the RV to that. I attached it all to a grey cardbase.

Its been a while!

It’s been a while since I posted. Our family went on a vacation to beautiful Montana and Northern Idaho. It was so nice to get away for a while and to see some beautiful country. Whenever we take our yearly roadtrips, we always imagine what it would be like to live on a farm in the middle of nowhere. Maybe one day we will get to experience that!

This was at an old ghost town in Bannach, Montana.

This beautiful spot is at the Idaho/Canadian border.

So I am back home and trying to get into the routine of cardmaking again. I’ve been focusing on Halloween lately so I will share this card that I made with some Spellbinders dies.

I started by using some distress inks on the background and then stamping the trees. Everything else on the card is die cut from the Sunday drive/Halloween dies from Spellbinders. I cut everything from colored cardstock and pieced it all together. It took some time as there are a lot of small pieces, but I love how it turned out.

Here are the links to the items I used.
