Hello Everyone! Christine with Pattercrafts with a Spooktacular Halloween card. Today’s card has a variety of dimension and techniques.
To start the card, I am making the background. I grabbed my star stencil and some distress ink. (I made one panel using Mustard Seed – as seen in the photo but ended up doing another panel using Squeezed Lemonade, which is in the final card) I applied the distress ink, wiped down the stencil carefully then applied some versamark. I pulled up the stencil, added clear embossing powder and then heat set the stars.
After the embossing powder was set and cooled I then used Concord Grape, Chipped Sapphire and black soot distress ink to create my sky.
While that dried, I die cut my ground and added some Peeled Paint distress ink to darken my card stock. I then then stamped the sentiment “Happy Halloween” and use more clear embossing powder.
These images are darling and I really didn’t want to use them once they were all colored!! I stamped them with Gina K Black Amalgam Ink and colored them with Copic Markers.
Once all the different elements of this card were ready, it was time to assemble the card.
I started by adding the 1st layer of “grass”/”ground” directly onto the sky piece. I then put 3 Pumpkin Clips from Doodlebug on the 2nd layer of “grass”/”ground”; to keep the clips from moving I used a piece of tape on the back. Between the Pumpkin Clips, I put 2 pumpkins from the Lawn Fawn Costume Party stamp set. I then added a few candy pieces (also from the stamp set). I added this piece to the panel with foam adhesive.
Now to the characters (that I wanted to hoard – hehe) I added them with liquid glue and made sure to add a few Halloween musts! Of course, one would need a plastic pumpkin to collect candy, the witch needs her broom and our little dinosaur is enjoying a piece of fun size candy!
On the inside I added the sentiment “Trick or Treat” from the stamp set, the other 2 characters and a couple more pieces of candy.
Thank You all so much for joining me today! I hope you enjoy and get inspired!
Hello crafty peeps!
Crystal here with an adorable card using Heffy Doodle’s Gnome Matter What stamp set.
How cute are these gnomes!?!
I just adore them! I inked them up along with a bunch of other images from this set using Memento tuxedo black ink and then colored them in using the following Copic markers: Y06, Y35, YG11, YG23, RV000, RV00, RV14, RV21, RV29, E000, E00, E11, N0, N1, N2, N5, N8, B000, B00, B02.
To build my scene I die cut a piece of white card stock using the Memory Box Wrapped Scalloped die and then I blended a little Tumbled Glass distress ink for my sky. I then cut a strip of patterned paper for my ‘ground’ from the Echo Park Spring Fling paper pad and also die cut the grass from the same paper pad. I adhered the grass to the back of the ‘ground’ paper and then adhered just the bottom portion of the combined papers to the scene so that I could be free to place things in amongst the grass, like the cute mushroom. I adhered all the images to create my scene and then popped up the focal panel on a white card base. To finish off the front of the card, I stamped my sentiment using my Tim Holtz Stamp Platform. Now, just a little tip… I should have stamped the sentiment before I popped up the focal panel, but because I used the Stamp Platform I was able to stamp the sentiment a few times to get the crisp sentiment I wanted.
The sentiment on the front of the card just keeps you hanging so I just HAD to add to the inside of the card. I combined the patterned papers again to continue the design on the inside of the card. I added another gnome… I colored several since I was on a roll. LOL
And then I stamped the sentiment for the inside of the card. I decided to add the little clock to this gnome’s hand to tie in the sentiment… so cute! Now, I got to thinking you could leave the card like this basically saying that the card is the recipient’s birthday gift. Or…
You could slide a gift card in there for just a little something… a quick gift idea!
Here’s a close up of the scene on the front of the card… I went a little crazy with the flowers, but couldn’t help myself! So many cute images to color in this set!
You can find the Heffy Doodle Gnome Matter What stamp set available in the shop!
Thank you friends for checking out my blog post!
See ya next time.
Hello crafters. I hope you are staying warm with these FRIGID temperatures we have.
Today, I am creating a one layer scene using the Newton Loves Coffee stamp set by Newton’s Nook.
I started by stamping and masking my images from the set and using a Copic safe pen to create little tiles for the counter top these cuties are sitting on. I used Distress Oxide Inks for my wall and colored my images with Copic markers.
I cut down my panel using a stitched rectangle die and added my sentiment and a bit of shimmer.
That’s it for today guys. Have a creative and crafty day!
Hi Crafters and happy weekend, I hope it is off to a good start.
Today I am creating a one layer scene using the S’more Fun stamp set by The Greeting Farm.
I started by masking off all 4 sides of my card panel and stamped and masked my images. I created a little sign for my sentiment and used liquid frisket to mask that out.
I did some Distress Oxide Ink blending for my sky and my grass and colored the images with my Copic Markers being sure to leave a highlight that would be created from the campfire.
Last I added some shimmer and a few details with my white gel pen and adhered this to an A2 size notecard.
Thanks for stopping by and have a creative and crafty day!!
Hi guys and welcome. I hope you are all having a great weekend.
Today I am using the Alpaca Holiday stamp set by Sunny Studio to create a little scene for a fun Christmas card.
I started by stamping my mountains and did some ink blending with Distress Oxide as well as regular Distress Inks to create my background.
Next, I stamped my images and colored them with my Copic markers. I fuzzy cut the images out and popped them up on my card panel with foam tape.
I heat embossed my sentiment and popped that up and added some details with a white gel pen and some sparkle.
That’s it for today guys. Thanks for stopping by and have a creative and crafty day!
Happy weekend crafters. I am here with a design team project today and we are going to be creating a VERY simple scene which means no masking and no ink blending.
I started by stamping my images from the Brutus and Friends stamp set being sure not to overlap. Next, I drew in some straight line in the background to create my fence.
I colored all of my images as well as the fence, and the grassy area with my Copic markers, being sure to create shadows for each image. This will give you card some dimension even though it is only one layer.
I stamped my sentiment and called this one done. Thanks for stopping by guys and have a creative day!
