Rainbow Ghosts
by Sue McRae

20200926_120152c

Hello crafters, Sue here with a fun and colourful Halloween card featuring the cutie Squeaker Ghosts. Don’t worry, these ghosts are totally friendly!

The ghosts are really easy to ink up with Distress Inks if you take your blending tool and smoosh some ink blobs onto your cardstock. Then you an easily die cut out the ghosts from all the different colours.

After I die cut the ghosts I did add a little bit of shading around the edges with the same ink colour. I added a piece of black cardstock behind the eyes and a dot of white gel pen for the eyeballs.

I took the Adriana Wreath and die cut it from black glitter cardstock, adhered it to my card base and added my inky ghosts around the wreath in rainbow order, of course!

The Boo Outline was die cut from purple glitter cardstock and black cardstock and the sentiment was white heat embossed onto black cardstock.

I think this turned out to be a cute and cheery card, no spookiness here!

Pile of Pumpkins
by Candice Crawford

IMG_2612

Hi there crafty friends! Today I am sharing an autumn card using the new Pile of Pumpkins die set from the Poppystamps new release.  Today's card is another one of my clean and simple designs. I paired the pumpkins with the adorable Country Garden Wheelbarrow dies to create the perfect autumn scene.

The background of the card is made using my Distress Oxide Inks in Mustard Seed, Abandon Coral and Walnut Stain. These blend of colors make the perfect autumn sunset for a great fall theme card.

The sentiment comes from the the Pumpkin Patch stamp set and pairs perfectly with the Pile of Pumpkins dies. I stamp the sentiment in clear Versamark ink and heat embossed it with white detail embossing powder from Ranger.

This card comes together rather quickly and can easily be massed produced. Whip up a few Fall cards in now time and be ready to send grateful blessings to your family and friends this Fall season. I hope you have enjoyed today's card project and found inspiration. Until next time... Happy Crafting.

Maple Symphony
by Sue McRae

20200911_133108c

Happy Monday crafters! Sue here with my first autumn card of the season. We’ve had a hot summer in my area and now I’m grateful for the cooler weather. With the cooler weather comes the changing of the leaves, which are so pretty!

20200911_133125c

I started by taking white cardstock and applying Distress Inks in shades of blue. Then I heavily sprayed the panel with Perfect Pearls I mixed with water. I did not use my fine mister for this because I wanted to create texture on the background with a larger mix of droplets. Love the pearly shine!

20200911_133154c

I took this panel and ran it through my die cut machine with the Maple Symphony die which die cuts the maple leaves and the swirly lines. I put aside these leaves for a future project and adhered the panel onto the white card base.

20200911_133136c

I die cut the Maple Leaf Symphony once from white cardstock and once from black cardstock. The black leaves were inlaid onto the panel. The white leaves were inked up with more Distress Inks and when I adhered them down onto the panel I offset them a little bit so the black inlaid leaf below would show a little bit to give a shadow.

The sentiment is white heat embossed on black card stock and I added a black Double Stitch Rectangle Frame to finish off the card along with a sprinkling of gold gems.

Thank you for visiting with me today and I hope you have a great crafty week!

Whittle Pumpkin Witch
by Marybeth Lopez

Hello there from smokey California, Marybeth here today. I made this very clean and simple card ( love), using the darling Whittle Pumpkin Witch from Poppystamps .I was very happy when I opened up the die, that it had extra dies for the clothing and broom. I only needed to cute twice to layer  with the Frosted Glitter from memory box.

6F666241-ADB1-4DBF-9501-FD39B30B1582

The sentiment is from Poppystamps called Halloween Ingredients clear stamp set. I used watercolor cardstock for the white panel and glitter paper (linked below) for the background  panel.

46E05F85-4AAA-44DE-BE8E-B2601F35316B_1_201_a

I cut the die a few times so I could see what colors I wanted to use. I ended up only using two colors to keep the card even more clean and simple. Don't you just love the detail on the pumpkin and broom!

Brick House Easel Card
by Sue McRae

20200822_115816c

Happy Monday crafters! I’m joining you today with a charming little scene on an easel card.

20200822_115752c

There’s lots of die cutting on this card but it’s easy to put together. The hardest part was choosing the colour scheme.

DSCN0489c

I started by die cutting my easel piece which is from the new Porch Pop Up Easel Set. The die set is meant for a front porch scene but I used only the two dies that create the card base and added other dies from my stash to make my own scene. This makes your easel card design possibilities, endless!

20200822_115309c

For the background of the card front I used some happy yellow patterned paper and added a grass border to the bottom of the panel.

20200822_115230c

I took the Proper Brick House and die cut it several times from different shades of teal card stock and assembled the house and I added a red door for a pop of bold colour.

20200822_115257c

The trees were die cut 3 times from white card stock and once from green card stock from the new Frosted Glitter Pad. I layered these all together to create thicker trees.

20200822_115526c

I die cut some small flowers from the Floral Cluster in yellow and red card stock and added them below the windows and used the Whittle Cloud as smoke from the chimney.

20200822_115331c

I think this card could be used for many occasions and would also be great for a guy so I left the sentiment on the inside simple with Just A Note stamped on a Colwell Label. This label die cut is what helps to keep the card in the easel position but it will mail flat in an A2 envelope. No extra postage needed!

Thanks for visiting with me today and have a great week!
