Hi everyone! I’m here to share my card I created for the Crafty Card Gallery. The theme for the month of October we had to either use pumpkin/jack o’lanterns or chocolate.
This is what I came up with for my card. The base is a folded 6″x6″ piece of purple cardstock. I cut and layered patterned cardstock/scrapbook paper which I adhered to the base of the card.
The Clyde’s Pumpkin Patch image is cut from Echo Park’s Chillingsworth Manor Poster and Tickets sheet of cardstock. I distressed the edges and then inked. Then added pop dots to the back to give it some “height”.
I cut three thin strips of orange tulle and made mini bows out of them. I adhered behind the image along with some black and white polka dot flowers and some mini lime green balls picks that I had bought at Christmas but never used. I also added sequins, dew drops and black lace.
I finished off the card with ric rac and buttons. I’m really pleased with how the card turned out and was very easy to make.
Also I am submitting this card for the orange and black or Halloween themed challenge over at Paper Wings Production blog.
Hi everyone!!! I’m here to share two cards I created for our monthly challenge over at the Crafty Card Gallery. The theme for this month is pumpkins and this is the cards I came up with.
Both cards bases are cut from a 6″x6″ piece of cardstock and then folded into a 3″x6″ base for each card. The first is card is very easy to make. I used scraps of cardstock, buttons, Dew Drop, Ric Rac, and I used one of those $1 stamps that you can get at Michaels and stamped jack-o-lantern on a scrap of orange cardstock. Pretty simple huh? 🙂
Hi everyone! I’m back to share a project I created using the awesome Halloween (Transylvania) Collection that is 20% off over at the Robin’s Nest this month. This collection of Halloween cardstock, which is double sided, and embellishments is so fun to use!
My sister came across some old AOL CD mailers when she was cleaning. She asked me if I wanted them? Well, does a cat have a climbing gear??? Of course I wanted them!!! 🙂 I was sure I could come up with some type of crafty project and this is what I came up with. This Halloween project I created can be used as a photo/calendar/note holder or it can be tweaked and a mini album could be added.
Next paint around the edges with black acrylic paint. Once dry Mod Podge over what has been painted with the black paint.
Cut a piece of Pumpkin Head Cardstock to fit both sides of the inside of the holder and glue down.
Cut two pieces of Purple Glitter Crackle Cardstock to fit the front and back of the outside of the holder. First emboss both pieces of cardstock with the D’vine Swirls folder and lightly ink both pieces with Stem Green Chalk ink. Adhere to holder.
Fussie cut the gate out from the Haunted House Cardstock and adhere three of the sides to the front to make a pocket. The other piece glue completely down.
Use Stickles to add a little bit of glitter to the eyes of the pumpkins on the gate. Next I fussie cut the owl and pumpkin image out from the Halloween Greetings digis. Cut and separate the pumpkin and owl image. The pumpkin will be used on the front of the holder and the owl will be used on the inside cover.
Use the Tag, Scallop w/Eyelet diecut and cut a tag from the Spiderweb Glitter Cardstock. I fussie cut one of the witches and the boo out. Cut out a banner from Halloween Glitter Stripe Cardstock and adhered to tag. Next emboss one of the Bats with the Flourish embossing folders, lightly ink with the Stem Green Chalk ink and adhere to the top of the tag.
Now emboss the outer edge of the Chipboard Pumpkin with the Flourish embossing folder and adhere the owl on top of the pumpkin. Also emboss one of the bat chipboard pieces with the Flourish folder and adhere to the moon. Used the Scallop Square Duo to cut a square and adhere two of the sides to make a pocket.
I used My Crafty Life Printable Creative Planner and printed the little bird notes which I added a little witches hat to their heads.
Glimmer mist a paper doilie in Peach Delight, emboss chipboard pumpkin just like the other pumpkin but I used Stem Green chalk ink on the stem of pumpkin. Adhere down the outer side and bottom of the pumpkin. You can either add a small calendar page or a photo of a special spook. 🙂
The “beware” sign I printed from the computer and inked the front and edges with Stem Green chalk ink.
