It’s a party!

I do love a good mash-up card and this is one of them! I’ve combined loads of different brands to make this. Distress Oxide inks for the background before using an My Favorite Things background stamp for the text. I think sprinkled water on after to get it more uneven. After using a mini slimline die cut I used Picket Fence Studios paper glaze on a Pretty Pink Posh stencil for the banners. The cupcake is a digital stamp by Alex Syberia coloured in copics. It’s cut out and put on foam tape. An Altenew sentiment and die set is for the text stripe and the sequins are Little Things by Lucy.

POD Kai the Fox Surfer

I’ve made another card using Kai from the summer release at Purple Onion Designs. This time I’ve gone with more feminine colours and added some bright pinks. I’ve coloured up Kai with my Copics and then made a mask so I could use Distress Oxides around. Then I gave the panel a border and stamped up one of the stamps from the new sentiment set (I love this set!).

Get ready for lots of bright ideas, and be sure to comment as you hop along, for your chance to win a $25 store credit!

I’ve made a card with the new Creepy Hollow Lantern die. It is so cool and perfect for trying out Pear Blossom Press EZ lights! I made the card in the shape of the lantern and then die cut it loads of times to make it thick enough to hide the lights. The switch is in the bottom left corner with a creepy green hand to press and the main part of the wires are hidden in a cut out part of the stem of the tree. The sentiment and tombstone are both from the Ghosts of Halloweens Past set.

Here you can see the button pushed and the three lights showing. And yes, I had to have a matching spooky nail polish, because why not! It is so much fun to have a card with lights like this, so I will definitely be making more!

Here is another photo of the card where you can see that I have cut out several layers of the lantern and glued them together.

PFS Spooky Halloween release

Picket Fence Studios (this and all following links are affiliate links) is out with one massive release. It’s very spooky and autumn themed, and it also has quite a few florals. Isn’t that just perfect? I’ve actually chosen to play with stencils, die cuts and colours for my release cards this month. First I will show you this spooky house card and tomorrow you will also find a witch card on the blog!

I started by ink blending the background by covering the area for the moon so it would have any ink on it. I ink blended straight onto the card base and made sure it covered well all the way to the edges. Then I used the Haunted Moon blending stencil and a pale coloured ink to make the moon. Later I die cut the A2 Ghost House cover plate die a few times and glued them together for dimension. Before gluing the top layer I embossed the Boo! sentiment. The sentiment is from the Ghosts of Halloween Past set. A few pretty purple sequins from the I’m Alive embellishment jar finished off the card.

Here is a side-on view of the card. You can see the house is raised from the background. That is because I have cut it out three times and glued them together.

And here you can see a more detailed photo.
