I’m Batty For You with CC Designs

Hello everyone! I have a very simple “non-Halloween” card for you today, featuring the Roberto Rascal’s Bats stamp set and Bats coordinating dies by CC Designs. This stamp set is honestly one of my favorites from the last release.

Here’s how I made this card:

  • finish the design by stamping the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Even though this stamp set is meant for Halloween, I wanted to stretch my supplies and use it for a non-Halloween project. It’s simple but it turned out really cute!

Creepy & Kooky Halloween Card with Kat Scrappiness

Hello KS fans! I’m sharing this super simple Halloween card today showcasing the Creepy and Kooky Halloween Paper Pad, along with the Happy Halloween Word Die with Shadow, Creepy Crawly Dies (spider), Peacock Backdrop Die, Dress-Up Quokka Stamp Set, Quokka Halloween Costume Add On Stamp and Mint Green AB Solid Round Confetti Sequins.

Sometimes, you just don’t have the time or energy to die-cut a lot of pieces to create a scene for your card. I am showing you a simple way to create a cute Halloween card without spending too much time, and use up those cute pattern paper without overwhelming the design.

Here’s how I made this project:

  • Stamp the image from the Quokka Halloween Costume Add On Stamp on Neenah solar white card stock. Stamp the image again on some masking paper and use precision snips to fussy-cut the masking image.
  • Stamp the Dress-Up Quokka Stamp Set onto the masked image. Remove the mask and color the images with alcohol markers.
  • Use Brother Scan N Cut machine to die-cut the image or precision snips if you don’t have the machine.
  • Die-cut the background panel using the Peacock Backdrop Die and adhere on some A2-size top-folding notecard.
  • Die-cut some black circle using the Never-Ending Circle Dies and cut some black strip as well measuring 2 1/4 by 4 1/4. Adhere both pieces on the card.

Haunted Mansion Pockets Pals by LDRS Creative

Hello!  I have a SPOOKY card for you guys today, featuring the Haunted Mansion Pocket Pals stamp set from the LDRS Creative new Fall/Halloween Collection.

I started by stamping the Haunted Mansion image on some Neenah Solar White card stock with Raven Hybrid ink [this ink is perfect for using with either watercolor or alcohol markers].  I colored the images in with alcohol markers.  My color palette was inspired by the packaging itself.  I definitely LOVE that LDRS Creative gives you ideas on how to color the stamps.  I wish more companies will do this with their packaging.

Next, I carefully ink-blended the background using Dark Wash Jeans Hybrid ink and some blending brush to create the night sky.  

To create a spooky effect, I stamped the little “ghosty” images and the bats on the window and background with Raven Hybrid ink.  I also die-cut the grass panel twice on some black card stock using the In the Grass Die Set.  I adhered these on the card with liquid glue.

Now that my scene is almost finished, I decided to add the moon that I die-cut using the By the Light of the Moon Die Set.  I also stamped the sentiment on some black card stock with LDRS Watermark ink.  I sprinkled some White Embossing Powder and used heating tool to heat-set the sentiment.  I fussy-cut the sentiment and adhered on the card.

Lastly, I used some white gel pen to add some dots and stars for added texture and interest.  Here’s another look at the finished card:

NND August Release Day 4 – Harvest Haul + Newton’s Crate + Giveaway

I am a bit bummed because it’s the last day of the August reveals by Newton’s Nook Designs! Were you able to hop along with us for the first three days? Which one is your favorite so far? Remember that you have a chance to win the stamp set being revealed each day so please read through til the end of the blog post to find out more info.  [Just a little important note:  I know some of you had difficulties finding the comments section.  If you would like to leave a comment to participate in the giveaway, the “comments section” will only be ever visible when a single post on Word Press is being viewed. Please click on this particular blog post and you will be able to leave a comment below.  Thank you!]  

For the final day of the reveals, we are showcasing the Harvest Haul Stamp Set + coordinating dies along with the Newton’s Crate Stamp Set + coordinating dies.

For my first project, I started by masking some Bristol smooth white card stock with masking tape and ink-blending this panel using the Sunscape Stencil and some distress oxide inks. I cut this panel and adhered on some Neenah solar white card stock with liquid glue.

I added some texture to the foreground by using some embossing folder and partially embossed the same on the die-cutting machine, then adhering it to a top folding notecard.

I finished the card design by stamping the sentiment on the banner that was die-cut from the Frames & Flags Die Set and heat-set with the heating tool. Here’s another look:

The next project is so cute and I love how this turned out. I started by temporarily taping the Jack-O-Lantern stencil no. 1 on some Neenah solar white panel. I used some orange ink and a blending brush to add the pumpkins.

I did the same to add the pumpkin stems detail by taping Jack-O-Lantern stencil no. 2 to the panel and used some lime green dye ink with another blending brush. I removed the stencil and cut this panel and adhered on some pattern paper from the Autumn Paper Pad with liquid glue.

I needed to ground the pumpkin images from the pattern paper so I adhered two orange strips on both sides, and added the scallop vellum that was die-cut using the Oval Frames Die. The vellum somehow toned down the busy patterns of the background, don’t you think?!

I stamped the images on some Neenah solar white card stock and die-cut using the coordinating die. I colored the images with some alcohol markers and foam-mounted to the card-front for added dimension. I stamped the sentiment on the image with some black ink.

Lastly, I added the orange bow to the card to finish my design. In case you’re wondering, the bow is from the Baby Bib Die Set. Here’s another look at the card:
