HAPPY HALLOWEEN (4)

Half way into August, I think it's okay to make Halloween cards. So here is the first of the year. I used the Booyah stamp set from Lawn Fawn.


I started by lating out my design and stamping the ghost shapes and the banner. I'm going to add the faces later. I stamped the word Halloween into the banner. All the accessories I stamped on a seperate piece of cardstock. I colored all the images with Copic Markers. Here are the colors I used:
Ghosts: C0 - C3
Banner: Y38 - YR04 - YR07
Accessories: W5 - W7/ W0 - W2/ V17 - V09/ YR16 - YR07/ G07 - G28/ E33 - E31


I fussy cut all the accessories. I also die cut the word happy with the Scripty Happy. Twice from Narwhal cardstock and once from Black Licorice cardstock. I layered them to give it a little dimension. I adhered all the elements onto the panel and added the panel onto a Narwhal cardbase.


To finish it off, I added glitter to the word happy, with the Clear Sparkle Pen from Spectrum Noir. I also rounded off the bottom corners.

What do you think of my first 2017 Halloween card?

THANKS A SLOTH (1)

For this thank you card I used the Hang in There stamp set from Lawn Fawn. I entered the card into the Lawn Fawnatics challenge, where the theme was 'custom sentiments'.


I started on the background. I used two Distress Ink and used a wide paint brush to add strokes of those colors to the paper. I used Wild Honey and Ripe Persimmon. I also added some splatter of both colors to the background. I set it aside to dry.

I stamped the sloth images and added a couple of leaves. I colored it with Copic Markers. Here are the colors I used:
Branch: E5 - E29
Sloth: E31 - E33/ W3 - W5
Leaves: BG93 - BG96


I fussy cut the images and added it to my background. I stamped the sentiment. I used Violet's Abc's and a sentiment from Love Letters. I added the panel onto a piece of Perfectly Plaid Rainbow paper. Then added a white cardbase.


Fairly simple, love the sentiment.

A WHALE OF THANKS (1)

For this thank you card, I used the Whale Wishes stamp set from Mama Elephant.


I started by stenciling the Radiating Rays onto the paper, with Squeezed Lemonade and Mustard Seed Distress ink. I then heat embossed on piece of the sentiment onto the card, with Silver embossing powder from Ranger. The other half of the sentiment I stamped in Hippo Ink.


I stamped the whales and die cut them with my Cuttlebug. I embossed a border, with the Stitched Borders from Lawn Fawn. I added the whales and adhered the panel onto a Peacock cardbase.

I added some Nuvo Glitter Drops, in the color Emerald City, making them look like splashes of water.


Wasn’t sure about the design, but it looks okay.

SENDING HUGS (1)

I created this simple encouragement card with the Color Drops stamp set from My Favorite Things.


I choose three Lawn Fawn Inks to stamp my pattern with. I used Lobster Ink, Sunflower Ink and Manatee Ink. I randomly stamped the different sized drops onto the paper.


I die cut the word hugs, that is from the Words For Friends die set by MFT. I added a piece of Black Licorice cardstock on the back, so you can see it through the letters.

I added the panel onto a Sunflower cardbase and added some Nuvo Crystal Drops to the card, in the color Dandelion Yellow. I rounded off the bottom right corner.


Really simple, but lovely. This set is so versatile.

WE BLEND WELL TOGETHER (1)

For this simple love card, I combined the So Smooth stamp set with the Aloha mini set, both from Lawn Fawn.

Pineapple: BG93 - BG96/ Y15 - Y17
