Halloween Card with Mama Elephant Kittens

Halloween Card

Today I’d like to share a Halloween card with you that I made a few days ago. But I made it for a friend, so I had to wait till she received it πŸ™‚ This card is highlighting both Mama Elephant Meowlloween stamp sets (Meowlloween and Meowlloween Extras) and some pumpkins from the Moonlight set from Winnie & Walter. For the background I used distress inks and the starry background die from WPlus9. First I colored the background with the distress inks wilted violet, hickory smoke, and blueprint sketch.

Ants in your pants Shaker Card

Ants shaker card

We had a major ant outbreak at work today. Ants everywhere… Yak! Normally I don’t care about them, but working while they are crawling over you and your desk? Nope! That’s why I needed to work through my traumatic experience and created an ants in your pants shaker card. I used the “Happy Summer” stamp set from Lawn Fawn and stamped and die cut hundreds of ants (okay, perhaps 20). I also stamped the water melon and colored it with Copics and added some Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents. While that was drying, I stamped, colored, and cut some …

The Layout idea is from the current MFT Sketch Challenge #241 and to be honest, I had a hard time with this one. Snow Globe Process First of all I stamped and colored …

Way too much fun with MFT stamps and stencils

MFT stamps color challenge No 26 - 1

There has to be a first, always. And today it’s the first time sharing a card that I intentionally made for a challenge. Today I’m playing along with the MFT stamps color challenge no. 26 and the Crafting by Design Summer Holidays challenge. The Background I started with preparing my shoe box to ‘color burst’ the background. To get the resist effect, I used the MFT Stencil Diagonal Bars on Canson XL watercolor paper. Than I squirtd some Ken Oliver color bursts on the background and misted everything carefully with water. To create the sun dawn effect, I used the …
