by Nadine Carlier

Halloween Witch Shaker Card by Nadine Carlier

Halloween Witch Shaker Card by Nadine Carlier 1

I had made a video showing you all how I created this card but technology was not on my side and somehow the video got corrupted so I lost it. :( So I will do my best to explain how I created my card.
I first started with a white piece of cardstock for my card front and rounded off the top of it.  Then using some Copic markers and an airbrush machine I sprayed the top half with some orange markers and the bottom half with green markers. I then took the Poppystamps Magical Cauldron Die and cut it out of the background piece I used the Copics on. For the witch, I used the Poppystamps Spellcaster Witch Die and cut the witch out of black cardstock. Just under the Cauldron, I used the Fa-Boo-Lous stamp from the Halloween Fun Stamp Set. Where I cut out the cauldron on the backside I added a piece of acetate and then added some 3D foam tape around the cauldron to add some shaker elements and then went all the way around the rest of the back of the card front with the 3D foam tape. Then attached the card front the card base to seel in the shaker elements.

Using one of the circles from the MemoryBox Basic Circle dies I cut out a moon and used airbrushed some yellow Copic Markers on it and adhered it to my card. Stamped some bats from the Halloween Fun Stamp Set around the moon. Then I adhered the witch to the front of the card with some 3D foam squares.

Autumn Decor Plate
by Nadine Carlier

Autumn Plate by Nadine Carlier PS

Hello, Nadine here I have had this plate for a while now and never use it, so I decided to decorate it so it is a pretty piece to have out for the Fall season. 

Supplies 1

I used three different colors and styles of StyleTechCraft Vinyl. I used Opal Vinyl in AmberLuster Vinyl in Bronze and Ultra FX Vinyl in Rust

Supplies 2

I die cut out a bunch of leaves using Poppystamps Maple Trio and Poppystamps Autumn Leaf Set dies. I then arranged the leaves onto the plate to get an idea of how I wanted them and then adhered them into place by pulling the backing off of the vinyl and sticking them down. Super easy to do with a beautiful outcome to display for the season.

Blog Blitz Window Christmas Card
by Nadine Carlier

Window Christmas Card by Nadine Carlier PS

Hello! Nadine here with a window Christmas card I created for the Poppystamps Winter/Holiday Blog Blitz.  I used several of the new 2019 Holiday release dies on my card.  Make sure to scroll to the bottom of my post to see how you can WIN the Cottage Window die that I used on my card.

Window Christmas Card by Nadine Carlier 1

To create the background, I ran a brown ink over a woodgrain embossing folder and then embossed a tan piece of cardstock. Then I die cut out the Cottage Window in brown cardstock, added some foam tape to the back of the window frame and attached a piece of white cardstock and then more foam tape to the back and adhered it to the front of my card. The shutters of the window I added some foam tape and slide them behind the frame of the window. 

I die cut out the dove from the Dove and Olive Branch and two of Holiday Mistletoes from white cardstock. Then colored the mistletoes with some Copic markers and airbrushed some light grey Copic onto the dove. The olive branch from the Dove and Olive Branch, I cut several times using green cardstock.  The Christmas Tree in the window, I cut out using the Whittle Trees die that is from the 2018 Holiday release.

DIY Halloween Tea Light Holder with Video Tutorial
by Nadine Carlier

DIY Halloween Tea Light Holder by Nadine Carlier PS 2

Hello, Nadine here and Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year! I may not like scary movies but I love to decorate for Halloween. So for my first Halloween craft for this year is a DIY Halloween tea light holder.
Have you ever envisioned something in your head but have no idea if it will turn out how you envision it or not? Well, that was exactly what kind of project this was for me. Luckily, it actually turned out!

DIY Halloween Tea Light Holder by Nadine Carlier 1

I cut out the Poppystamps Spellcaster Witch die from the StyleTechCraft Bright Green Luster Craft Vinyl and wrapped it around the base that I created. I then cut out the Poppystamps Scary Ghost and the Poppystamps Friendly Cat from the StyleTechCraft Purple Luster Craft Vinyl.

Party Animal Card
by Nadine Carlier

Party Animal Card with Poppystamps by Nadine Carlier

Hello there Poppystamps fans! Nadine here and I am sharing a fun party animal card with you today.  When I was trying to figure out what to make I saw this scrap piece of burlap sitting on my table and I immediately thought it would make a fun background for the cute Poppystamps Whittle animal dies.  I have never used burlap on a card like this before, it was pretty easy to do I just cut it into a square and adhered it down.

Party Animal Card with Poppystamps by Nadine Carlier 1

I die cut out the Weeping Willow Branch in dark green cardstock and adhered it to top of the card over the burlap.  For the Whittle Monkey, I die cut him out in dark brown cardstock and also a beige cardstock, cut out his face, tummy, and ears from the beige cardstock and adhered them to the dark brown. Then I wrapped his tail around the vine of the Weeping Willow.

For the Whittle Lion and the Whittle Tiger, I cut them both out in yellow-orange color cardstock and used my Copic markers to color them in a little.  The Whittle Tiger I decided to have her sit on the larger of the two Whittle Mounds.

I then cut out the Whittle Oval Wood Frames, once using dark brown cardstock and again using white cardstock.  I used the dark brown for the frame itself and used the inner part from the white to stamp the sentiment "Have Fun You Party Animal" from the Whittle Everyday Stamp Set.  Then die cut some of the Cheery Cardinals and adhered them around the frame on the Weeping Willow Branch.

After I adhered all the Whittle Animals on my card I felt it still needed a little more so got out my airbrush machine and airbrushed on some Copics on the burlap, animals, and sentiment.  Then my card was complete! 

Thank you so much for stopping by and happy crafting!
