Fangtastic Halloween

Hey all,

So we are now into our third week of October and that means that it is time for yet another Halloween card for my 9 year old son! πŸ™‚

This week, I decided to play around with some new to me Distress ink combos for this time of year and I think it turned out great. I love the combination. Have to admit, that I found it somewhere on pinterest, but of now I can’t remember where…

Hey all,

I am running out of Birthday cards, and over at they are having a challenge all things stripe, so I thought it was a good waIMG_3088y to combine my needs with a challenge for the chance to win πŸ˜‰

Also, I have some stamps that I haven’t used enough yet and dies that are brand new to me.

So I started out stamping the several of the roses and leaves of the Altenew – Vintage Roses and used the coordinating dies to cut them all out. I really wanted to create a nice dimensional flower cluster. The sentiment stems from another Altenew – Label Love, and they really look like labels πŸ˜‰ I used my MISTI to stamp that particular celebrate label three to four times to get it real black and crisp. Afterward I fussy cut it out.

Next, I used the Graduated Stripes die form Neat & Tangled to die cut a stripy background, which I then attached onto a watercolor background.

Last, but not least, I took my time arranging my flowers and leaves, using liquid glue and dimensional adhesive to pop the roses up. The sentiment was also popped up for more dimension πŸ™‚

I hope you like it ! πŸ™‚

You hold my heart….

Hey all,


Today’s card I made for my grandma. I wanted to include lots of hearts and flowers πŸ˜‰

so I decided to go with an image from BildmΓ₯larna, a Swedish company that unfortunately doesn’t exist anymore.
I stamped the image in Versafine Onyx Black ink and colored it with my beloved Faber Castell Pitt Brush markers. In the original image she was holding a small heart. I fussy cut that out and used a heart from Magnolia – yet another Swedish stamp company. I raised her with dimensionals and tucked the heart under her to make it look as though she was holding this heart all along.

The sentiment was stamped on a tag and that too was tucked in behind the main image.

For the background I made my own patterned paper by stamping and embossing the same heart that she is holding onto some card stock and afterwards applying distress ink all over that piece.
