Lawn Fawn ~ Spooky Halloween Card

Happy Tuesday my lovelies :) Hoping you are having a great day! I have a fun Halloween card to share with you today featuring some Lawn Fawn Images from a couple of their stamp sets. I love how you can mix them up and create fun and unique scenes. For this card I used images from Sweater Weather as well as Monster Mash. I also used the co-coordinating die sets for each stamp set. Love, love the ease of dies instead of fussy cutting :)

I think these images can be used for a variety of different cards, but together, they suit my Halloween scene just perfectly.

I created the background my blending various distress ink colors onto some watercolor paper. Then, I spritzed the paper with water to create this misty, rainy effect. I had already embossed the moon (I used a circle from an old PTI set) using white embossing powder. I just wiped the distress ink off using a baby wipe. As you can see, it stayed white.

I used some Landscaping dies to create the grass by cutting them out of the same watercolor paper and then just sponging over them with more Distress ink colors. I didn’t spritz these with water.  The top piece was adhered using some foam adhesive which adds a great feeling of dimension to the card.

I stamped the tree from Sweater Weather over on the left-hand side and then, without re-inking, I stamped it two more times. I believe this is called “ghost stamping” and I love the effect it gave my card. Then, I used the co-coordinating die for the tree from Sweater Weather and die cut some dark brown cardstock. I adhered this to the right-hand side.

I stamped, copic colored and die-cut several of the images from the Monster Mash set. Two make them pop a little more, I added some darker dots and some white dots (sharpie poster paint) to the images. The were all adhered using more foam adhesive (highly addictive). This picture below gives you a better idea of the layers that the foam gives the card :)

If you are a regular on this blog, you probably have noticed my new found obsession with Lawn Fawn products :) When I saw that they were having a DT call for their Facebook Inspiration Team, I just had to enter :)  I am keeping my fingers crossed :)

Thanks for stopping by and have a great rest of the day!

Stamp and Create ~ October Challenge and More!

Happy Monday! Hope your weekend was fabulous and this lovely Monday wasn’t too hard on you!

I have my card for the newest Stamp and Create with Magnolia Challenge to share with you :) The challenge is “Fall Accessory”. I was a little stumped but Lacey suggested some feathers and I went with it!

I created a small tag using some left-over card-stock and patterned paper. I used Sitting Witch Tilda from Magnolia and as my Fall accessory, I embellished with Rooster White Plumage Feathers. It looks a little spider-webesque, don’t you think?

Stamp and Create

Happy Monday and Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians :) Hope your day is filled with family, friends, turkey and PIE! My pie just left the oven and the turkey is going in shortly :)

I of course have a Christmas card to show you (totally not organized)

DSC_8112 copy

I used Magnolia’s Tilda on Roof, Sweet Jylehat and assorted Snowflakes to creat this. I airbrushed with Copic markers. The background is actually more green but is showing up as yellow. Not sure why. The sentiment is from a PTI set.

There are a lot of stamps and items on sale!!
Go check them out!!

Thanks for swinging by and have a great day.

Mini-Halloween Card Series #2 Kitty Cat

Happy Friday! I am internally shouting “TGIF”!!! This has been a LONG week and I am happy, happy that this part of it is over. Now I am looking forward to the week-end filled with family, fun and Thanksgiving FOOD!

DSC_8096 copy

I am super happy to be able to share the next card and video in my Mini- Halloween Card series. Next up, just about the cutest kitty cat stamp I have seen!

DSC_8084 copy

This second card pairs up the Cat and the Hat (ha!) , landscape dies from Mama Elephant and a fun fence die from La-La Land Craft Stamps. I love how the proportions of all these elements are perfect for each other. I like being able to mix and match my products to create unique looks.

In today’s video, I am not sharing the actual putting together of the card. Instead, I take you through the stamping process I used to save time as I created this series of cards. If you would like to see if over at my YouTube channel, you can find it –> here.

Mini-Halloween Card Series #1 Vampire Graveyard

Happy Wednesday! I am so excited to be sharing a set of cards and videos that I created for Halloween. I used a bunch of different products from different companies and they all came together to create fun and unique cards. So much fun!

DSC_8096 copy

Over the next week or so, I will be sharing each one with you and have an accompanying video to take you through the process. The cards are sized to measure a 4” square and I used left-over patterned paper to create the mats. This size of the cards is the perfect proportion to create fun scenes with the cute images and dies from Lawn Fawn and Mama Elephant.

DSC_8083 copy

This first card showcases a sweet vampire image and I paired it up with a cityscape die-cut and grave-stones to create a spooky scene. Okay, who am I kidding? This scene is more cute than spooky but highly appropriate for the kids :)

Here is how I made it.  If you would like to see if over at my YouTube channel, you can find it –>here.

Copic Airbrushing with Masks

Happy Tuesday everyone! As promised, I am back today with another airbrushed background card and a video showing you how it was done.

I have relocated my Copic ABS to a small trolley that I can wheel right over to my work station and then wheel away when I don’t need it. I find that this small change has made a world of difference in how often I use it. It is all amount easy access!

I picked up a Memory Box stencil/mask over at Scrapbook Centrale on my last visit. I had been looking at the MFT Spider web die but I had to weight the price vs. how much use I was going to get out of it. TBH, it can really only be used for Halloween/Fall themed cards, so I decided not to get it. When I saw the Distressed Web masking stencil and the pretty nice price attached, it was a no-brainer.

I was really, really happy in how the airbrushing turned out. It was thrilling to pull away the mask and see the result!

DSC_8058 copy

As you can see, there is an almost velvet look to the background. I love, love it! I had used a white card-base measuring 4.25” x 5.00”. This sweet image from Whiff of Joy’s Fall kit was the absolute perfect image to add to it!  If you neglected to pick up the kit while it was on pre-order, I am sure this will be coming out in digital form very soon!

I created another smaller card using the same technique and Copic colors. I posted that card yesterday and here is the video that I made:

Hope that this has inspired you to try using a mask/stencil to create a fun background. You could also use distress inks and foam applicators if you don’t have an airbrush system :) Here is the stencil that I used:
