Meet Midnight

Good morning! I’d like to introduce my black cat, Midnight! Isn’t he adorable? I think I am a little partial. Halloween isn’t complete without the famous black cat.

20180916_135841.jpg

Start with a Smoky Slate card base measuring 11″ x 4 1/4″. Attach a piece of Basic Black card stock that measures 4 1/8″ X 4 3/8″.

I cut a piece of Basic Black card stock to measure 1 1/2″ square. Cut this in half diagonally to create the base for you ears. Adhere these to you card base, above the piece of Basic Black.

Cut a piece of Powder Pink card stock to measure 1 1/4″ square. Cut this in half diagonally to create the inside of your cat ears. Adhere these to your Basic Black triangles. Also, cut a small triangle out of Powder Pink to create your nose. If you have a small heart punch, you could also use that.

I punched 2 Granny Apple Green circles using the 1″ Circle Punch and 2 Basic Black circles is using the 3/4″ Circle Punch. Cur the Basic Black circles into crescent shapes. Glue these together to make your eyes.

Adhere both eyes to your card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using a White Gel Pen, draw on whiskers and a mouth. Also add some shine to your eyes.

Happy Stamping!

Scarecrow Card

Hey everyone! I have a cute little scarecrow card for you today. I think he looks a little Hippie-ish, but I still like the way he turned out!

20180916_140154.jpg

Start with a Pumpkin Pie card base measuring 11″ x 4 1/4″. Attach a piece of Very Vanilla Card stock measuring 5 3/8″ X 4 1/8″.

I punched 2 Pumpkin Pie circles using the 1″ Circle Punch, 2 Very Vanilla circles using the 3/4″ Circle Punch, and 2 Basic Black circles is using the 1/2″ Circle Punch. Glue these together to make your eyes. Adhere these to you card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a small diamond out of Gray Granite card stock and attached that to be the nose. Using an Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker, I drew on a mouth and added some freckles.

20180916_140158.jpg

I cut some Linen Thread in various lengths and unraveled it. I attached this to the top of the card using a strip of SNAIL. I then added a small strip of Pumpkin Pie card stock  to hold the hair in place.

I’d love to know what you think about my Halloween spooks so far. Please feel free to leave a comment or like.

12 Weeks of Christmas!

Hello everyone! Today marks the start of my 12 Weeks of Christmas 2018.

I have done this in years past, using only Holiday sets. This year however, I wanted to do things a little differently. I decided to use some of the stamp sets in the Annual Catalog and make them Christmas-y! In doing this, I can showcase the VERSATILITY of all of our stamp sets and give you more creative alternatives.

Step-by-step tutorials will be sent out to my newsletter subscribers for FREE! If you are not yet a subscriber, sign up today using the little pop-up box when you first come to the page, this way you can get all the amazing tutorials too. I will also feature a handful of these projects in my Christmas Stamp-a-Stack. This will be a by mail only option this year.

And now, on to the project!

I created this project using the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits. I have showcased these Thinlits and the coordinating stamp set a lot, but this gives it a little bit of a different look/style.

Meet My Mummy!

Hey everyone! I have an adorable mummy card for you today. I made this one to go with Frankie! I used a few basic things which can be found listed at the bottom of the post.

20180916_140232.jpg

Start with a Basic Black card base measuring 11″ x 4 1/4″.

I cut a piece of Very Vanilla measuring 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″. Then I tore it into strips. Sponge the edges of all the strips with Early Espresso Ink. Then lightly sponge the center of the strips using Gray Granite Ink. This will give them that weathered, mummy look.

Randomly attach these strips using SNAIL and leave a space open for your eyes.

20180916_140238.jpg

I punched 2 Very Vanilla circles using the 1″ Circle Punch and 2 Basic Black circles using the 3/4″ Circle Punch. Use the Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Write Marker from the 2018-2020 In Color Markers to draw “veins” on the Very Vanilla circles. Now attach the Basic Black circles to the Very Vanilla circles to create your eyes.

20180916_140241.jpg

I popped both eyes up using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Hope you enjoyed, and keep watching for more of my spook-tacular Halloween friends!

20180910_123541.jpg

I used Pacific Point Cardstock (8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″) as my card base. The Whisper White layer is 5 1/4″ X 4″. I ran that through the Corrugated Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I die cut 2 large and 2 small swirls from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits out of Pacific Point cardstock. I cut one swirly edge out of Smoky Slate using the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits. The Soft Suede is 3 1/2″ X 2 1/2″. The Pacific Point layer is 3 1/2″ X 2 1/2″ and the top Whisper White layer is 3 1/4″ X 2 1/4″.

Masculine Birthday Card

Good morning all! I am way behind on my posting, I have been so wrapped up in planning and creating for my 12 Weeks of Christmas, that I have let everything else fall to the way side. I finally have a new Manly Monday post for you!

20180910_103712.jpg

I started with an 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ piece of Vellum Cardstock. I stamped the Happy Birthday image from Birthday Wishes For You in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I added a 1 1/4″ circle with 1/4 of a 1″ circle and a piece of white and green twine from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit.

20180910_103724.jpg

Inside of the Vellum I added a 7″ X 4 1/2″ piece of Cherry Cobbler Cardstock. I scored this in half at 3 1/2″ and centered it on the Vellum card base. My patterened layer is a 4 1/4″ X 3 1/4″ piece of Festive Famhouse Designer Series Paper. I added a 1 1/4″ and 1″ Circle with 1/4 of a 1″ circle and some white and green twine.

20180910_103731.jpg

I put a 4 1/4″ X 3 1/4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock on the inside of the Cherry Cobbler piece. I then used the other sentiment from Birthday Wishes For You and stamped it w=using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

20180910_103743.jpg

I spritzed my Balloons with some copper shimmer paint to give them a little shine.

20180910_103752.jpg
