Happy Halloween Card with Kat Scrappiness

Happy Halloween with Kat

Welcome to my first blog article with the Kat Scrappiness Design Team. To say I’m thrilled would be an understatement. I love her shop and everything she does for us crafters! So let’s get started, shall we? I wanted to create a rather simple Halloween card with Kat Scrappiness sequins being the focus. So I decided to keep the background settled.

faux shaker card

Hi everyone and welcome to a new CYCI challenge πŸ™‚ This week it’s all about shaker cards, or when you just don’t want to deal with all the shakers, a faux shaker card.

I stamped the fox, the leaves and the squirrel, …

Shiny Gold for a Crafty Friend – CYCI #136

Close Up 1

I love this week’s sketch challenge at Can You Case It! It’s one of those simple ones that open up so many possibilities. Not too long ago, I found Reactive Mist at Joann’s that can be used with the Minc machine and I was super excited about the new possibilities for the foils. To be honest they already caught a lot of dust, but the spray makes it interesting again. That’s why my first idea was to layer foiled vellum on top of some pretty patterned paper. I started with stenciling some hearts using Distress Ink in Milled Lavender on …

Faux Shaker Card Inspired by Catherine Pooler

Faux Shaker Card

Hello there, I was in the mood for something different again and for some reason I’m kind of into mixing blue and oranges at the moment. I really enjoy this color combination.

What the Hell with So Suzy Stamps

what the hell

“What the hell?” is probably what you thought when you saw the title of my blog post πŸ˜‰ Maybe not, but I agree so much with the sentiment of the featured stamp for my So Suzy blog post today that I just had to add it. What the hell? Why are the Distress Inks on my image all sideways? I must have slept while taking the picture. Or did I just wanted to have another reason to say “what the hell?” πŸ™‚ Anyway, I started with the ink blended background. I used a Dylusions stencil for the cherries and blended …

That’s why I decided to grab some sprays and color my desk a little πŸ™‚ I realized that I haven’t used the current MFT “Forest Friends” stamp set yet, but I really like the sentiment May the Forest be with you.
