Happy Halloween card

Hello and welcome to the post for today. I think this is my favorite card to date. I used some new to me products from Darice and Spellbinders and boy did I have a great time. I have created a Halloween card that is fun and spooky ( at least eerie). Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.

.

.

Additional supplies: ATG tape runner, Spellbinders tan embossing pads, Love Nicole Trick or treat paper pad, DCWV Foiled card stock, Darice Coredinations World Tour card stock, Maker's Mart Sept Dies of the Month, Darice Pickett Fence Border die, American Crafts Halloween Puffy stickers.

1. Create card base Basic Black card stock to measure 4 ¼” x 11” and score at 5 ½”.

2. Cut a piece of patterned paper leaving a very thin border all the way around. Adhere to the card front using ATG tape runner.

3. On a piece of cream Coredinations card stock (4” x 5 ¼”) start sponging on Perfect Plum ink about 1/3” down, move on to Tangelo Twist in the center of the panel and then Perfect Plum again at the bottom of the panel. Spritz lightly with clean water and let sit for about 20 seconds. Cover with a towel and remove to leave behind water splotches. Set aside to dry.

4. Using the September 2016 Die of the Month kit, cut and emboss the tree from Kraft colored card stock and then sponge the image with Early Espresso ink.

5. Die-cut bats from Basic Black card stock and die cut a pumpkin from orange foiled cardstock and the face from Basic Black card stock.

6. Die cut a medium circle from yellow cardstock using the Layering circles framelits. Sponge the edges and the inside of the die using Tangelo Twist ink.

7. Using the Pickett Fence border, die cut and emboss using the Bog Shot machine.

To assemble the card:

1. On the sponged background lay out elements in desired design.

2. Adhere the Circle in the upper right corner using ATG and then adhere 2 of the bats with Fine-tip glue pen. Next adhere the tree die and place another bat to the left of the tree.

3. Cover the fence die with Fine tip glue and adhere over the bottom of the tree. Place pumpkin with glue dots to the bottom right corner and adhere the puffy sticker sentiment to the left. Add black splatters.

For the inside of the card:

1. On a piece of cream card stock (4” x 5 ¼”) stamp Trick or Treat in Tangelo Twist ink. Sponge the edges of the panel with Early Espresso ink. Adhere to the inside of the card.

2. Using mini glue dot adhere a die cut bat next to the sentiment.

Sweet Honeybee Spinner card

I have a card for you today that is a little out of my norm. I have never created a spinner card but for one of the September Challenges we were tasked with picking our inspiration from the Stampin' Success 3rd quarter magazine and create a card based on it or copy it directly. The project I chose uses the same stamp set but I used different papers and elements to create my card. Such fun for making my first Slider card. Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.

.

.

Additional supplies: 2 pennies, clear blocks.

1. Cut a card base out of Old Olive card stock that measures 5 ½” x 8 ½” and score at 4 ¼”.

2. Cut a slightly smaller piece of the Serene Scenery DSP and decide where you want to create the spinner portion of your card. Die cut the slider element and place the pennies in the track in order to adhere foam adhesive to pop the DSP up. Don’t put adhesive too close to the pennies or the mechanism won’t work.

3. On scraps of Whisper White card stock, stamp images using Memento Tuxedo black ink and then color the images using Stampin’ Write markers. Adhere the hive in the upper left corner unsing Tear & Tape and with a mini glue dot adhere the bee image to cover the penny.

4. Stamp sentiment inMemento Tuxedo black ink, cut to size and then back the sentiment with a scrap of Old Olive card stock. Adhere the sentiment to the bottom left corner with mini glue dots.

I hope you have enjoyed today's project and will check back often for more inspiration. Thank you for visiting.

Good morning and welcome to another card that was used in a challenge in September. For this challenge we had to use 2 card stocks + white card stock, 3 ink colors and 1 stamp set. I made a very clean and simple card and I think this was my favorite challenge for September. Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.

Additional supplies: clear blocks.

1. Create a card base from Dapper Denim card stock that is 5 ½” x 8 ½” and score at 4 ¼”.

2. Cut a slightly smaller piece of Flirty Flamingo card stock, sponge the edges with Tip Top Taupe and adhere to the card base using Tear & Tape adhesive.

3. Cut a slightly smaller panel of Whisper White card stock and sponge the edges using Tip Top Taupe ink again. Stamp the texture stamp on the white panel using Tip Top Taupe ink, in the center of the panel and then stamp the bird image right on top, using Dapper Denim ink. Stamp the sentiment under the bird also using the Dapper Denim ink. Stamp the flowers in Flirty Flamingo on either side of the sentiment and also in the upper right corner. Adhere the stamped panel to the Flirty Flamingo panel using Tear & Tape.

Stampin’ Up Sept Challenge #6

Hello and welcome to another post. The September challenge #6 was to use any project you find on the Stampin’ Up homepage for INSPIRATION. Don’t copy it but make it your own. I used Santa's Sleigh bundle, Warmth & Cheer DSP, Silver Metallic thread and the Silver Metallic shapes to give the illusion of snow falling. I made an Oval shaped Christmas card. Take a look below and let me know what you think.

.

.

1. Create a card base from Whisper White card stock that is 5 ½” x 8 ½” and score at 4 ¼””. Die cut an oval shape to create the shaped card base then cut a piece of the Warmth and Cheer DSP to 4” x 5 ¼” and die cut another oval shape to fit the top of the card base. Adhere the DSP on top of the card base and trim off any excess paper.

2. Usine Tip Top Taupe card stock, stamp the reindeer image using Memento Tuxedo black ink and then die cut the image with the matching framelit. Place a couple of glue dots behind the reindeer and then cover with silver metallic thread and then place the reindeer above the sentiment.

3. Stamp the sentiment on a strip from one of the other DSP’s in the pack and flag one end. Adhere the sentiment strip about 1 ½” from the bottom using Fine-tip glue pen.

4. Sprinkle the card front with basic rhinestones.

The inside of the card was left blank for a personal message
