Boo-tiful Halloween Cards

BOO
 
I'm working on a little something for my kids and niece for Halloween.  Last year I created a bunch of Halloween card, Bevy of Monsters and they have been pretty Spooktacular with everyone.  So this year I made another quick and easy set. 
The paper is Authentique 6x6 paper pack from last year and the cards are standard A2, 5 1/2" x 4 1/4".  All the spooky accents are my Movers and Shapers mini dies.  I made all 4 cards in about 20 minutes.  However, the dry time on the Movers and Shapers doubles that time.
 
My little bat cut with cereal box, painted black and layered with Glossy Accents is rockin with BAT-itude! The stamps used with these cards are Scrappy Moms Stamps, called Goosebumps!  The Bat Fence punch is Martha Stewart and ribbon is Michaels.

 
When you open the card the spooky continues!

 
Love the skulls!  Again the stamp is Goosebumps and the Halloween Bakers Twine you can order through SMS

 
I paired the sentiment on the inside to the skull of the outside!
 
 
Also a Martha Stewart fence punch, this rickety old thing goes with my pumpkin.  I also added a copper wire as a trendil attached to the stem.  The leaves I picked up are Prima. 

 
These sentiments are from the new SMS, Pick of the Patch!

 
The scary cat is is painted in black and a thick layer of Rock Candy is applied to make it crackle!  The front of the cards sentiments are all stamped with SU's Craft White, then clear embossed.

 
One of my favorite stamps in the Goosebumps set.  Love this font!

 
Voila...

 
You can cut these down in time to under 30 minutes if you avoid the painting, glossy accents and rock candy dry time!  Be sure to check back later and see what I'm making to go with these!

Grinch

I am so excited to share this Tutorial with you!  This is a tutorial on how to "draw" an image to scale!  How to take a small image and make it life size using a grid pattern.  I'm sure if you are on Pinterest like I am you've seen The Grinch stealing Christmas lights.  I looked for a tutorial on how to make my own but I couldn't find one.  Not to say someone hasn't created a tutorial.  So, I decided to create my own.  With the help of my husband who created the Grid pattern for me to make these characters come to life.  Much like he did for my daughter's Union Jack Headboard.  Keep in mind, this is NOT A COPY of The Grinch.  Before you consider purchasing the class...you will have to DRAW him yourself.  In this class you'll be shown how to grid a print out and grid your plywood so you can "DRAW BY NUMBER" if you will.  Even if you can't draw... you can draw the lines in each grid connecting them to the next grid.  I can draw but not s…

New Release- Stamp and Photo Storage

All month the Inspiration Team for Eileen Hull is thrilled to be showing off the her newest Book Club Collection.  Here's my little glimpse at the Stamp and Photo Storagedie.  There is nothing this decent size die can't do... or hold!  In this case Letter's to Santa.  I even combined the Trinket Box & Frame to frame out Santa.


I stamped the Woodland Winter Santa designed by yours truly onto watercolor paper and used my Scribble sticks to add a little color.
I cut a piece of clear packaging and ran it through my little Xyron Disposable Sticker Makerto create a cover for my Santa.  Perfection!

I colored up the Floral Arch and Words arch to attach to the bottom and top and attached.  I used some Distress Woodgrain Cardstock to wrap my Stamp and Photo Storage. I cut Super StockCardstock to fit inside.  Inking and stamping like crazy all tied off with some postal twine.  The Correspondence Stamp Set is perfect.


I mounted the Trinket Box & Frame to the Stamp and Storage…

Pumpkin Parts Thanksgiving w/ Xyron

While my Thanksgiving may be over it is coming soon south of the border.

Xyronis getting ready for holiday season and what better way then with the Pumpkin Parts die cut.  This easy card is layered with paper and ink to create a festive pumpkin card.  The team will be sharing their fall inspired projects all week so be sure to pop by for lots of inspiration.



The Create a Sticker is great for all the smaller pieces to layer and quickly put together.  For a quick background stamp the craft sheet with Distress Oxides, spray and drag.
I cut Thanksgiving from the Sentiment Words Thinlit and attached with the Sticker Maker.Fall Foliage has this little hay die cut that I added to the bottom of the pumpkin attached the Xyron Mega Runner.
I clipped a couple of the Twisted pieces for a little green for the top of the pumpkin.





Don't miss any of the inspiration with the rest of the Xyron Team.
