Halloween 2018 Card Series | Cute card feat C.C. Designs



Hi everyone! TodayI am back with a card and a video I made for the C.C. Designs blog, using the C.C. Designs Monster Bash stamp set. 
As a first step I stamped my images on Neenah Solar White 110lb cardstock with My Favorite Ink Black Licorice Hybrid Ink. I then colored them with my Spectrum Noir markers and fussy cut them with my scissors. 


Next up I started working on my background. I used my Gansai Tambi watercolors to create a night sky on a watercolor cardstock panel, and I cut the panel with a circular die by Tonic Studios. 
I then used the Lawn Fawn Spooky Fence Border to cut some black cardstock. I turned it into glittery cardstock by doing some heat embossing with Nuvo Shimmering Pearl embossing powder. 


I cut some white cardstock to an A2 size using the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables, and I cut a circular opening of the same size as my night sky die cut.
I used the Halloween Dies by C.C. Designs to cut two spiderwebs, and I added some color to them with the My Favorite Things Grout Gray Hybrid Ink. I used that same ink and the smaller images in the C.C. Designs Haunted House stamp set to create my own subtle custom patterned paper.
The result is not very visible in the pictures, but in real life it adds interest to the backround, without stealing attention from the elements in the foreground. 


For the sentiment, I die cut some letters out of black cardstock using the C.C. Designs Baggie and Tag die, and formed the word BOO. To finish off the card I added some details with my Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Pen, Glossy Accents and a white gel pen.

I also filmed a video for this card, you can watch it down below! And, if you liked it, you can click the button below to subscribe to my channel! Thank you for your support!






And that's it for today! I really hope you liked the card and enjoyed the video! 
I will be back soon with another fun project, and, in the meantime, I wish you all a great day!

Masculine Card with No Coloring | SugarPea Designs Mix it Up Challenge



Hi everyone! Today I want to share with you this card I made for the current Mix it Up challenge on the SugarPea Designs blog! 



For my card today I followed both the sketch and the colors in the inspiration photo, and I created a card with no coloring, and with mostly die-cuts.



For the card base I cut some white cardstock to an A2 size using the SugarPea Designs Card Front Element Builder Dies. I created my own subtle patterned paper by repeatedly stamping one of the stars in the Seeing Stars Stamp Set with some light grey ink. 


For the circular frame I die cut some more white cardstock using two dies from the Zig Zag Stitched Circles dies. I then used the Stacked Stars to cut lots of stars of different sizes, and in colors matching the ones in the inspiration photo of the challenge. 
I raised the circular frame over the card base with some fun foam, and adhered the stars all around it.



I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder over some black cardstock, and, for some finishing details, I added some Nuvo Drops in Morning Dew.

And that's my card for today!  Make sure to visit the SugarPea designs blog and to enter your projects  featuring SDP products for your chance to win 50$ to the SugarPea store!

September 2018 Cardmaking Haul | Heffy Doodle, Lawn Fawn, My Favorite Things, SugarPea Designs


Hi everyone! Today I am back with a haul video for September 2018. September is my birthday month, so I was spoiled by my husband and my family with lots of amazing crafty goodies!
You can watch the haul here :D




...and now, a question for you!

In the video I also asked you how you would like if I introduced a new feature. In each haul video, I would like to also show you the cards I made with products shown in the previous haul. I think it is a nice way to show you those products in action, and also for me to keep track of what I buy and what I use :) What do you think? I could also do a separate video, if you prefer :) 

For this month I could only show you a couple of cards in the video itself. I am moving from Germany to England in two weeks, so I have already packed my cards. So I thought this time around I will show you pictures of those cards here, with links to the posts where I shared more details about them. In the caption I will also list which of the new products I tried out in these cards. And if you want to watch my haul from last month, you can find it here

Let me know if you like this feature and this is something you would like to see in future haul videos too!

Halloween 2018 Card Series | Halloween Scene feat Impronte d'Autore and Lawn Fawn



Buongiorno a tutti! Oggi sono sul blog delle Timbrine con una card a tema Halloween, realizzata con i timbri della serie Il Mago di Oz di Impronte d'Autore! Per tutti i dettagli, tante altre foto, e un video tutorial in Italiano potete visitare questo post! Spero vi piacerà! :)



Hi everyone! Today I am back with a Halloween card I created for the Impronte d'Autore blog using stamps from their Wizard of Oz series by Impronte d'Autore. I have more pictures on my post (in Italian) on the Impronte d'Autore blog, but I wanted to tell you a little bit about this card here too.
The inspiration came from this Halloween card by my DT mate Cristina, and I decided to put my spin on it.

The stamps I used today are part of the wonderful Wizard of Oz series by Impronte d'Autore. These are clear stamps with sentiments in Italian, but are also available with sentiments in English as unmounted rubber stamps. I used images from the sets Io Voglio un Cuore (English version here), La Bontà di una Bambina (English version here) e La Magia è nel Credere  (English version here). I combined them with the Lawn Fawn Costume Party stamp set, which helped me create the Halloween theme for this card.
I stamped the images with Versafine Onyx Black ink on Bristol Smooth Cardstock, embossed them with clear embossing powder, and colored them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I then cut them with the coordinating dies (except for the Lawn Fawn images, that I fussy cut). 





For the scene itself I used Distress Inks and dies by Lawn Fawn (my card front measures 9.9 x 21 cm). For the sky I used Distress Inks in Picked RaspberryWilted VioletFaded Jeans and Black Soot. I created some stars using Gansai Tambi watercolors in silver and white.
For the grass I used the Grassy Hillside Borders by Lawn Fawn and Distress Inks in Peeled Paint and Forest Moss. In order to get a long enough panel I used the extended die cutting technique, that I explain in the video at the end of this post.
In a similar way I created my fence with the Lawn Fawn Spooky Fence Border and Distress Inks in Pumice Stone Hickory Smoke.


I heat embossed the sentiment from the Lawn Fawn Costume Party stamp set with white embossing powder on some black cardstock, and I cut a banner around it using one of the dies in the Double Slider Surprise set by Lawn Fawn.
I decorated the inside of my card (the base measures 21 x 19.8 cm and is scored at 9.9 cm) using one more sentiment from the Costume Party set, and images from the set Felicità (English version here) by Impronte d'Autore. I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black, and the images with Distress Oxide in Hickory Smoke. Isn't it adorable?!


I also created a video tutorial for this card, you can watch it down below. If you enjoy the video, you can let me know with a comment and a thumbs up on my YouTube channel, and you can subscribe for more! Thank you for your support!




And that's it for today! I really hope you guys liked this card and enjoyed today's video!
I will be back soon with another fun project, and, in the meantime, I wish you all a great day!
