Halloween Card Share – Stamp Anniething & Polkadoodles

Halloween Card Share

Hello! Today on my blog I am sharing three Halloween cards that I made.

To see the YouTube video, click the video below or read below for a detailed description of each card.

Stamp Anniething Halloween Card using Viva la Vida StampStamp Anniething Halloween4Stamp Anniething Slimline

For two of the cards, I used the Stamp Anniething Sofia – Viva la Vida stamp. I stamped the image onto Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Card Stock and colored with alcohol markers and then fussy cut the image. The card base is a back slimline card (4 x 9 inches).  I cut a piece of Bristol Smooth paper slightly smaller than the card base to do the ink blending. The distress ink colors I used for the blended background are Black Soot, Chipped Sapphire, Festive Berries, Carved Pumpkin, and Scattered Straw. After ink blending the background, I used a paintbrush to flick some water onto the background and then padded the paper with a power towel to dry up the water. This added a speckled look to the background. I stamped the sentiment “Have a Very Frightful & Delightful Halloween” using Versafine Onyx Black Ink onto the blended background and then covered it with black embossing powder.  I used a heat gun to emboss the background. I added the images as shown. The fence die cuts are from the Doodlebug Pumpkin Party Odds and Ends pack and were adhered using Tombow Liquid Glue.

For the next card, I used a piece of black card stock to make the A2 size card base (4.25″ x 5.5″).  The paper is from the Recollections Boo Paper Pad. I cut down the newspaper pattered paper slightly smaller than the A2 size card base and distressed the edges. I also applied Black Soot distress ink to the edges. The scalloped frame is a Lawn Fawn die – Scalloped Rectangle Frames. I used this die to die cut the spiderweb paper on the inside of the frame as well as the black card stock (scallops on the outside of the frame). I adhered the scallops to the A2 card base and then added the spider web paper to the middle. I used foam adhesive to adhere the stamped image. I added two spiderweb stickers to the front of the card.

For the inside, I cut a piece of gray card stock just slightly smaller than the A2 size, distressed the edges, and added Black Soot ink to the edges. I stamped the sentiments as shown with black and purple ink. The sentiments are from Queen and Company’s Hocus Pocus Shaker Kit.

Polkadoodles Halloween Card using Winnie Broomstick and Winnie Magic Stamps

Polkadoodles Halloween3Polkadoodles Halloween4

For the third card, I used the Polkadoodles Winnie Magic and Winnie Broomstick stamps which I stamped onto the Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth card stock and colored with alcohol markers. I then fussy cut the images and set them aside.

I used another slimline card base and the Bristol Smooth paper to do the ink blending. The colors I used for the ink blended background are Black Soot, Wilted Violet, and Carved Pumpkin. After ink blending the background, I used a paintbrush to flick some water onto the background and then padded the paper with a power towel to dry up the water. This added a speckled look to the background.

The witch pot is a shaker piece from Queen and Company’s Fright Fest shaker kit. It is actually the pumpkin basket shaker piece, but for this card I am using it as a witch pot. I cut two small pieces for the legs of the pot with black card stock and adhered them as shown. The shaker bits are also from Queen and Company and linked below. I used liquid glue to adhere some the shaker pieces to the front of the card.

I stamped the sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black Ink onto the blended background and then covered it with black embossing powder.  I used a heat gun to emboss the background. I added the images as shown.

The Stamps of Life 3-D Drop-in Pop Up with Rainbow

2 Cards using 3-D Pop-up Drop-in Die Set- The Stamps of Life

 

Hello! Today on my blog I am featuring two cards that I made using the 3-D Pop-up Drop-in die set from The Stamps of Life.

The two cards are show above. The first card on the left incorporates all of the dies that come in the die set which include the gorgeous background die in the center as well as the Happy Birthday sentiment and balloons. The nice thing about this die set is that any of The Stamps of Life background dies will work with this set.

The second card on the right uses the same 3-D Pop-up Drop-in die set, however, instead of using a background die in the center, a scalloped rectangle was used to make a shadow box center. Then, I used the Rainbow2Stamp stamp set to incorporate a rainbow in the inside center of the card.

The entire process can be seen on my YouTube video below. Be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel for more crafty inspiration.  Supplies are also listed below.

Stamp Anniething Lemonade Stand

Stamp Anniething Lemonade Stand by Lisa Mears

Hello!

On my blog today I’m featuring a card I made using Stamp Anniething’s Lemonade Stand bundle. This company is new to me. I first saw them at the Stamp and Scrapbook Expo in Orlando, Florida on May 17, 2019. Their stamps are amazing! I picked up the Lemonade Stand bundle which includes a stamped doll image and many other stamps and die cuts to go along with it. Check out my video which shows everything that is included in the bundle and the process for which I made the card. Enjoy!

Cupcake Avery – Elegant Card

Cupcake Avery 2019-04

Hello!

Here is a another birthday card that I made using a stamp from The Paper Nest Dolls. This stamp is called Cupcake Avery. I also incorporated some of Anna Griffin’s elegant dies and papers and Queen and Company’s flower embellishments.

The card base is from Anna Griffin’s 6 x 6 Perfect Pattern Card Set. The color matches perfectly with the green copic markers that I used to color her dress.

The large square die cut is from Anna Griffin’s All Square Cut and Emboss Dies. First, I die cut shadow layer in the purple glitter card stock.  I applied double sided adhesive to the top solid purple layer before running it through the die cut machine. This made it easier to adhere to the glitter paper.  The green lace die cuts are from the Anna Griffin Lace Edge Die Set and I followed the same procedure as previously stated.

Using hot glue, I adhered the flower embellishments to the front of the card.

Here are the supplies I used:

  1. Paper Nest Dolls Cupcake Avery Stamp
  2. Lawn Fundamentals Jet Black Premium Ink Pad
  3. Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Premium Card Stock (to stamp the image onto)

Ice Cream Emma – Celebration Card

Ice Cream Emma Paper Nest Dolls

Hello!

Here is a birthday card that I made using The Paper Nest Dolls Ice Cream Emma stamp. The Paper Nest Dolls has such adorable stamps. They remind me of the Holly Hobbie dolls that I had when I was a little girl. And who doesn’t love a shaker element on their cards?? The ice cream shaker element is from Queen and Company and goes perfectly with the ice cream theme.

Copic, Lawn Fawn, Valentine's Day

Valentine’s Day Card using Lawn Fawn’s Sweet Friends Stamp

Valentine Smore Card Horizontal

Hello!

When I saw the Sweet Friends stamp set from Lawn Fawn, I knew that I immediately had to own it. It is the perfect stamp set for any occasion and I thought this would be perfect for a Valentine’s Day card. There are several stamps included in the set, but I chose to use the s’mores stamp for this card.

I stamped the image using Lawn Fawn’s Lawn Fundamentals Jet Black Premium Ink Pad and then colored it with Copic markers. I used the corresponding die cut, Sweet Friends Lawn Cuts, to die cut it. The hearts were stamped using the same ink and die cut as well. The pink paper was from my stash. The white scallop border was die cut from Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Scallop Rectangle Frames using white paper from my stash.

To put this card together, I cut a piece of the rainbow paper from Lawn Fawn’s Really Rainbow Petite Paper Pack and adhered it to a card base. Next, I cut a piece of the red paper from the same paper pack and adhered it to the white scallop border. Using foam tape, I adhered it to the card base to add dimension. Next, I adhered the s’more die cut and hearts to the red paper. Finally, I used Lawn Fawn’s Lawn Fundamentals Jet Black Premium Ink Pad to stamp the sentiment onto the front of the card.

Here is another version using the same stamp set, only different paper.
