NNDAug18_HoppyHalloween

I stamped my images on some Neenah solar white card stock and colored them in with my alcohol markers.  I die-cut the images with the coordinating dies.  I also die-cut the sentiment with a small die that is going to be showcased tomorrow (you got an early sneak peek, haha!).

On an A2 piece of Bristol Smooth white card stock,  I used my scalloped circle frames die to die-cut my little windows.  I inked up the negative space with my distress oxide inks.  I adhered the frame and the colored background onto my card base.  Here’s the card:

These bunnies are so adorable and I wanted to create a non-traditional Halloween card.

Don’t you just love those adorable bunnies?  Here’s another look:

NND August Reveals – Day 2 – Fabulous Frenchies

NNDReleaseIcon_Aug18

It is the second day of the August reveals by Newton’s Nook Designs.   I hope you were able to check out yesterday’s reveal.  You have a chance to win each stamp set during release week so check out the details I have indicated at the end of this blog post.  [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.

For our projects today, the design team is showcasing the Fabulous Frenchies stamp set and coordinating dies.

NNDAug18_FabulousFrenchies

I stamped my images on Neenah solar white card stock and colored them in with my Copic markers.  I die-cut the images with the coordinating dies.  I always color more than one image so that when I need to use it for my project, I already have it colored and die-cut and all I have to do is think of a card design.

I inked up my background using my handmade stencil with Spun Sugar distress oxide ink.  I wanted to create a different background for my card other than a blue sky.  I also inked up the hill with Mowed Lawn distress oxide ink.  I die-cut a scalloped border and adhered it on my card.  I also adhered my cute little Frenchie.  Here’s my card:

NNDAdorableFrenchie1A

I used black and white wash tape to decorate both sides of my card.  I love the simplicity of this card.  I’m not sure why the shirt looks blue on the photo but it is actually dark gray.   It’s been raining so much in Florida and I haven’t had much luck taking bright photos lately and I apologize for that.

NNDAdorableFrenchies1B

This stamp set is a must-have!  I can’t wait to show you my other card using this stamp set next week.

World’s Best Dad Card with Xyron

Hello my crafty friends!  I am back today to share with you a very simple Father’s Day card, using dies from Gina Marie Designs and the best of the best, Xyron 1.5 Inch. Sticker Maker and Xyron Mega Runner adhesive.

XyronFD1

I find it hard to create cards for guys because I am always guilty of over-embellishing my cards or using feminine colors.  I thought my card below is super simple, yet it is perfect for your Dad, or husband for Father’s Day.

I started out by die-cutting my card stock using my dies.  Since the fishing pole is quite intricate, I had to die-cut it twice to have more stability.  I adhered both pieces using my sticker maker.

XyronFD2

I colored my fish die-cut using my sponge and distress oxide inks (worn lipstick and peeled paint).  I wanted the colors to blend well together to make it look more realistic.  I colored the rest of the die-cut pieces with my Copic markers.

XyronFD3

To finish my design, I highlighted my fish with my Spectrum Noir glitter brush pen, and added the black rhinestone to the fish’s eye.  Here’s my card:

I hope you like my project today and got inspired to create a simple father’s day card.  The supplies I have used are listed and linked below.  Have a great weekend!

Winter Scene Christmas Card

Is everyone ready for Christmas? To tell you the truth, I’m not. This year, I am way behind the shopping and all the other things that I need to do before Christmas. The only thing I was able to do last weekend was to at least take the fall décor down and put the Christmas décor up. I am waiting for my kids to arrive so we can all decorate the tree. But enough about my procrastination!

I was listening to some Christmas music today and got inspired to create this Winter Scene Christmas card, showcasing the Winter House Scene Die and Merry Christmas script die by Gina Marie Designs, available at Kat Scrappiness. This die is a must-have! You can easily mass-produce the card below. I promise you, it’s really easy. Please watch the process video below to see how I made the card.

I hope you got inspired today. Supplies are listed and linked below in case you are interested to purchase them.

Have a wonderful day!

 

 

Halloween Cards & Frankie Treat Box

I am back today to share with you some Halloween projects that I made using a bunch of dies and card-making supplies from KatScrappiness.Com.

October has always been my favorite time of the year to start my crafting for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. With the days getting shorter, I want to keep myself busy and create hand-made projects to give as gifts.

The first vellum LED tea light card with the skeleton was actually made a few days ago, as I wanted to display it on top of my mantle with the rest of my Halloween D.I.Y.’s.

final-6

The second card is my favorite. When I first saw this Cheery Lynn Designs Witch’s skirt die at KatScrappiness, I immediately thought of this design for a card. I thought it is pretty hilarious!

 

final-5

 

For the sake of time, I am going to keep this blog post short and show you the process video for the Witch’s Skirt/Cauldron Card and the cute Frankie Pillow Treat Box.

I hope you like the projects. Have an amazing day!
