Halloween Ingredients
by Candice Crawford

IMG_2778

Hey there crafty friends,  Candice here with another Halloween card. Halloween is tomorrow so I wish all of you a Happy and safe Halloween. To create this card I began by ink smooshing distress oxide inks colors onto a piece of white water color cardstock. I used the Distress ink colors of Candied Apple, Mowed Lawn, Mustard Seed and Wilted Violet.

Next I stamped the bottle images from the Halloween Ingredients stamp and die set onto the smooshed distress ink colors with some Stazon Black ink. Then I die cut each of the bottle images with the coordinating dies.

Next I stamped the Ghosts, Goblins and Witches labels with Stazon Black ink into the coordinating tag outline stamp and die cut each of the images with the tag die from the stamp set. To add a bit of interest to the card I added a few stamped spiders and fussy cut each one out with my scissors and adhered them to the card with liquid adhesive.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment a Halloween Hello from the Halloween Fun stamp set with Versamark Ink and heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder. I hope you've enjoyed card share and found inspiration. Happy Halloween everyone. Until next time.....Happy Crafting.

Glittered Holly
by Sue McRae

20201023_093314-(1)cc

Hi everyone, Sue here with my first Christmas card of the season and I thought I would sparkle it up big time!

I couldn't wait to use the gorgeous Holly Background die and decided that all the open spaces in the design would be wonderful to fill will glitter glue.

20201023_093251-(1)c

If you follow along with my posts, you'll remember that I used glitter glue to create a Valentine's Day card that can be found here. Since that card was posted, Memory Box came out with their own brand of glitter glue which I'm using on this project. All the scrumptious colours can be found here.

First I took the Holly Background and die cut it 3 times from 110lb Neenah Solar White and once from gold glitter card stock. I adhered the white layers together and attached it to my card base.

I chose my colours of glitter glue and squeezed them into the different die cut areas. I used a toothpick to help get the glitter glue in the corners because the glitter glue does shrink as it dries. Because of this I make sure to use enough glitter glue so it comes to the top of the third layer of the die cut panel. It will drop down after it dries and if you get a little bit of glitter glue on the top portion of the die cut panel it doesn't matter because it will be covered up with the last layer, the gold glitter piece.

This technique is easy and quick and since there are so many fabulous glitter glue colours out there, the options are boundless!

20201023_093306-(1)c

I did my glittering in the evening and left it overnight and it was dry in the morning. Then I added my top gold glitter layer and a simple white heat embossed sentiment.

20201023_093259-(1)c

I had a lot of fun with this technique and I may be eyeing another Christmas die to use with the glitter glues. I hope you give this a try!

Have a great week!

Twisted Halloween
by Sue McRae

20201009_085144-(1)c

Hello, Sue here with my last Halloween card of the year. 

I finally had a chance to use the Twisted Tree Oval die! Love all the details with the cut lines throughout the tree for texture and depth and the gnarly branches add a bit of creepiness!

20201009_085155c

The tree was die cut from black card stock so the ink blended background would pop against it.

I used the Whittle Monsters for this card. It's such a fun die set with a variety of spooky critters. I chose the skeleton which was die cut from silver matte card stock and the mummy was die cut from a grey flecked card stock that I inked around one edge in grey.

20201009_085220c

For the witch and her broom I did some quick Copic colouring.

20201009_085133c

I added the sentiment with silver heat embossing and assembled by card.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today and I wish you a Happy Halloween!

Spiders! A Halloween Card
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0064

Hello Poppy Peeps! You are in for a treat today. After all it is Trick or Treat season, and I have a fun and spooky card to inspire.

DSC_0053_wm

My card combines some sponge inking, embossing, and die cuts too. The new set, Halloween Ingredients has just about everything you need to make this card.

DSC_0052

The background was stamped with all the words, and embossed with white powder, before blending Distress Inks in several colors. All those cool little vial bottles were colored with copics, and the set even includes the tags in several sizes. The tiny spider is also a stamp from the set, and I stamped and fussy cut some out. I have no idea why, spiders freak me out! Much friendlier on a card!

DSC_0066_wm

One of the vials is tipping over, and several spiders have escaped! I just love a good scary story on an A2 card!

Do you know a few special people who would smile receiving  a cute and slightly scary Halloween card? I think I've sent out more greeting cards during this Covid season than past years combined. Love surprising people dear to me with a greets treat!

Halloween is right around the corner! Hope you and yours are safe and well, and planning to enjoy the holiday safely.

Hi there! Marybeth, here today. Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying October.

For this card, I used the beautiful Snowy Forest Embossing folder from memory box , for the backdrop of my card.

Not sure if you can see but I added some glitter on the embossed folder , its such a beautiful  shimmer in person.

I simply added the glitter die cut trees from Poppystamps to the already embossed panel.

In the photo above I am showing how I die cut the leaves , you might not even need a metal shim but the trees came out so beautifully when I did. Glitter paper is a bit thicker than most paper,  the dies cut like butter with the shim. You could probably use an extra paper if needed and you don't have a shim.

I always cut out way more than I need  so I can choose as I go, to create my card then I have extra for the next card.

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!

20200922_160645

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.

20200922_154804c

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!

DSCN0572c

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

DSCN0580c

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