Halloween Card with Crafter’s Essentials – Fall by Kat Scrap (Process Video Included)

Hello my crafty friends! I am back today with this cute Halloween Card, showcasing the Crafter’s Essentials – Fall Die Set, Stitched Scalloped Border Dies, some Purple Jewels and Distress Oxide inks.

 

I have a video tutorial for you today (link below) so I will keep this blog post short.  Here’s my card:

 

 

I love the “evening sky” colors I blended using my distress oxide inks.  I didn’t want to use the typical orange and black for Halloween.   Here’s a little close-up:

 

 

Don’t you just LOVE the stitching details to the die-cuts?  Also love the Purple Jewels.  It just adds a little more oomph to the overall card design.

Happy Meow-oween & Pawsome Birthday

Hello Newton’s Nook fans!  Are you ready for more inspiration from last week’s August release?  For today’s projects, I am showcasing a LOT of Newton’s Nook products.   I’m featuring the Halloween Trio stamp set and coordinating dies, Fabulous Frenchies stamp set and coordinating dies, with an older stamp set Newton’s Perfect Pumpkin. I also used the Land Border Dies, Sky Border dies with the Framework die set.

For my first card, I inked up my background with distress oxide inks —> Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry and Fossilized Amber to create my night sky.  I sprayed it with water using my distress sprayer and dabbed it with my paper towel.

I stamped my image on some Neenah solar white card stock and colored them in with my Copic markers.  I die-cut the image with the coordinating die.  I die-cut the grass with the land borders die on some black card stock, as well as the picket fence and the clouds, using the Sky Border dies.  I adhered the die-cuts and the images on my colored background.

To finish my design I added the pumpkins, spider web and the spider with the black bats using the Newton’s Perfect Pumpkin stamp set.  I also stamped the sentiment with versa mark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.

Here’s the Happy Meow-oween card!

I added some white details to the pumpkins and the noses of the critters.

For my second card, I stamped my images on some white card stock and colored them in with my Copic markers.  I die-cut the images with the coordinating dies.

I die-cut an A2 size smooth white card stock and dry-embossed it with the biggest die using the Framework die set.  I cut the window using the smallest die of the same set.  I covered the window with acetate and also added my foam adhesive to create the well for my shaker card.  I used some white and purple star confetti as my shaker element and adhered this piece on my card base.

I inked up the bottom of my card front with some Antique Linen distress oxide ink and adhered my little Frenchies on my card.  I also adhered the balloon and stamped my sentiment onto the card.

To finish my design I added glossy accents to the balloon and the little Frenchies to make their noses pop.

Trick or Treat Card with Kat Scrappiness

I know it’s only August but I like working on my Halloween cards as early as possible as I make quite a few of them to send to friends.  For my card today I am showcasing the Stitched Scalloped Collage Frame Die, the Lawn Fawn Halloween set and the new Gold Jewels mix and 3mm Transparent Neon yellow Solid Star Confetti mix.

I started out by stamping my images on Neenah solar white card stock and colored them in with my alcohol markers.  Since I don’t have the coordinating dies for my images I used my Brother Scan N Cut 2 to die-cut them.  I also die-cut the Stitched Scalloped Collage Frame die with some black card stock and used my foam adhesive to create my little well for my shaker card.

I assembled my shaker card and stamped my sentiment on some orange card stock using the banner die that is included in the Crafter’s Essentials 1 die set.  This die-set is probably one of my all-time favorite dies to use for my projects.

Here’s my card:

I didn’t use the traditional orange and black sequins because I felt that it would have overwhelmed the whole card design.

I love how this card turned out.  The new Gold Jewels mix is beautiful!  Here’s another look:

Before I end this post, I wanted to let you guys know that Kat Scrappiness is having a 20% off sale on all Neat & Tangled products, using coupon code “NEAT20” and this is only valid until August 19, 2018.

For my project today, I used the new Loveable Llama stamp set by NND, a Sizzix step-up die from my stash and my all-time favorite Xyron Mega Tape Runner.

IMG_8655

I stamped my Llamas from Loveable Llamas stamp set on some Neenah solar white card stock, using memento tuxedo black ink.  I colored them in with my Copic markers, and used the coordinating dies to die-cut the images.

I used a patterned paper from my stash to die-cut the pieces to decorate my step-up card and adhered them with my Xyron Mega Tape Runner.  This is my favorite adhesive to use on my projects.

IMG_8656

I adhered all of the images on the card and finished the design by stamping the sentiment on a banner strip die, and added the yellow bow.  Here’s the card:

Toil and Troubled by Kat Scrappiness

Hello my crafty peeps!  I hope you are having a great day so far!  I am back today for Kat Scrappiness, showcasing the new Halloween Stamp Set called Toil and Troubled Layer stamp set, Cross-stitched Rectangle Dies, Spooky Sparkles Sequin Mix and the Waves Border Dies. Just a little heads up, I will have a haul video soon on my YouTube channel showing you a sneak peek of my huge giveaway coming up next month around Thanksgiving!  Please stay tuned for that announcement.  If you are not subscribed to my channel yet (www.youtube.com/rprmlr772), you need to head on over there because you wouldn’t want to miss new process videos of craft projects I have lined up, plus of course the giveaways I do regularly.

I started out by stamping the cat image with my stamping tool, using two light gray inks,  the Simon Says Stamp Fog Ink and Lawn Fawn Hippo Ink.  I have the coordinating die for the cat but I didn’t want a black border around it so I fuzzy-cut it with my precision tip scissors.

I used the biggest of the Cross-stitched rectangle die to die-cut my card front with a light gray card stock, and used a die from my stash to create the spooky window scene.  I wanted to do a fun shaker card and use one of my all-time favorite sequin mixes by Kat, called Spooky Sparkles Sequin Mix.   I covered my little spooky scene with the Dovecraft Heat-resistant Acetate sheets.

I die-cut my spider-web with the Lawn Fawn Spider Web die, adhering it with my Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive, and also adhered my Black Cat and the Waves Border Die.  I finished the design by adding the little ghosts from the Boo-tacular Sequin Mix and stamped the sentiment.  Here’s the card:

Here is the Mood Board that is a part of the challenge and what has inspired my projects today!

katScrap Worldcrdmking moodboard

For my card, I am showcasing products available at the shop.  The card that I created below is very simple and anyone can re-create it.  I know that some of you are just beginners, and don’t really have a lot of supplies.  I wanted to show you that you could create a beautiful card even with just using a patterned paper, and some die-cuts.

I started out by die-cutting my cute little witch using the Witch with Cat Die by Gina Marie Designs.   I also die-cut the Stitched Heart Tag Die and the Cross-Stitched Rectangle Dies for my card front.  I fuzzy-cut the tombstones and the Happy Halloween sentiment strip from the BOOtiful Night 6×6 Paper Pad by American Crafts.

I wanted a small shaker element on my card, without making it look too busy.  I used black fun-foam (instead of a foam adhesive) and run it through my Xyron Creative Station Lite with a Double Permanent Adhesive to create a sticker.  This will ensure that both sides of the fun foam will have edge-to-edge adhesive and your shaker elements will be completely secure!  I used some of my favorite Halloween sequin mixes, i.e. the Spooky Sparkles Sequin Mix and the Autumn Harvest sequin mix.   I adhered the tag on my card base.

To finish the design, I die-cut a stitched hill die from my stash, then adhered it onto the card front, with my cute little witch and the tombstones.  I stamped the spider web and the little spider using a stamp from Newton’s Nook Designs, and added some white dots with my Uni-ball Impact Bold Point White Gel Pen.

Here is the finished card and I hope you like it.

Xyron and Paper Smooches Collaboration

Hello my crafty friends!  I am super excited because today, the Xyron Design Team is collaborating with Paper Smooches.  Thank you Paper Smooches for the goodies that you have sent us.

 

For my cards today, I am showcasing the Chubby Chums stamp set and the Bunny Card Die .  This set is so adorable!  Please visit www.papersmooches.com to purchase cute stamps and dies.

 

I started out by stamping my images on Neenah solar white card stock and colored the images in with my Copic markers.   I fuzzy-cut the images with my precision scissors.

 

IMG_5669

 

Halloween is fast-approaching and I wanted to show you that you can use any stamp set for pretty much any occasion.  I used a frame die from my stash for my little “chubbies” and used my favorite Xyron Mega Tape Runner to adhere it onto my card front.  I also used the tape runner to adhere the critters.

 

IMG_5671

 

Here’s the card:

 

XyronPaperSmooch1

 

Aren’t they adorable?  I added a cute witch’s hat to my Owl and a trick-or-treat bag to my cat.

 

Since I colored so many of the images I wanted to create a birthday card.  I used dies from my stash and to adhere the intricate bow on my card front, I used my Xyron 1.5 Inch Sticker Maker.  When I adhere intricate dies, I always use either my sticker maker or my Xyron Creative Station Lite.

Here’s the birthday card:

Paper Smooches was very generous and also sent us the Bunny Card Die.  Here’s a little foldable treat bag that I made:

Pumpkin Spice in my Latte

Hello my crafty friends.  I am up for Kat Scrappiness today to share with you a simple coffee-themed shaker tag, showcasing products available at the shop.

I started out by stamping my images using the Pumpkin Spice Stamp Set and Dies by Lawn Fawn on Neenah solar white with my Memento Tuxedo black ink.  I colored the images in with my Copic markers and die-cut them with its coordinating.

I wanted to create a cute shaker tag to use some new sequins from the shop, the Teal Woodgrain Flat and 6mm Orange AB Hallow Circle mix so I die-cut a medium tag using my Kat Scrappiness Stitched Scalloped Nesting Dies with the Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Fall Collection Paper Pad.  I stamped my sentiment onto my tag, and assembled the shaker tag.

I hope you like my shaker tag.  I have also listed and linked the supplies I used below if you’re interested.  Please use my coupon code Maria10 for 10% off your order at the shop.  Have an amazing day!
