Happy Halloween everyone! I have not crafted nor blogged in ages, there has been too much going on. I did get into my craft room this morning and brought a Halloween napkin with me……and made this quick and simple journal page….
I cut the pumpkins out from the napkins and used two of them on the page. I didn’t worry about getting them glued down totally wrinkle free either as pumpkins are always warty and wrinkly in real life! I embossed this raven from La Blanch stamps on the page, this is actually one of my favorite stamps! I used alphabet stamps to stamp out the quote and highlighted it with white ink.
Quick, easy and fun – and just the crafty fix I needed!
Thanks for stopping by today and have a safe and fun Halloween.
It is Nicole here with a fun Halloween tag project. I used the fun Spook Street kit for some embellishments and the fabulous crackle background stamp on this one.
I die cut a black and a purple tag. I had some orange card left over so tore up a strip of that also.
I stamped the crackle background on the purple tag.
I then layered all the cut out embellishments on the tag, using a combo of glue and foam tape.
I then laid the orange strip over the bottom of all this.
I added a fun little panel for the sentiment…
I stuck a cobweb up in the top corner and trimmed off the excess.
I added a long orange ribbon and left it at that. This will be fun tied onto a little trick or treat bag, or even as some decor.
Thanks for stopping by today, hope you got some Halloween inspiration!
I am over on the Sarah Hurley blog today to share a little step by step with you all. You may have seen my tag over on the challenge post a few weeks ago? I created a tag shaped door hanger for Halloween decor. Today I want to share the way I created the background.
I started off by paper piecing the image together. I coloured the flesh in a pink and green tone and added in the hair and dress.
I then gathered up a lot of my Halloween paper scraps and tore them into strips…
I then glued these all onto a piece of black card stock…
I then die cut a tag from this page using a Tim Holtz tag die…
I added a fun message from the stamp set…mmmm….brains!
I added my zombie girl and used a combination of glue and foam pads to mount it…
And here it is complete again. I don’t know what happened to the colours on this final photo unfortunately but you get the idea!!
Just sharing my project for the Sarah Hurley 365 blog. Our fun theme this month is Halloween! I have made a fun door hanging using the zombie doodle doll - love this set! I made it a tag style and used lots of layers of scrap papers to build up the background. I then added a nice long ribbon to hang it on the door handle – perfect for Halloween decor!
Just stopping by here today to share a fun project using the Sarah Hurley Sentiments stamp set! I really love all the sentiments in this set and decided I wanted to use as many of the stamps in the set as possible.
I die cut 3 tags and on two of them stamped as many of the sentiments related to birthday and celebration as would fit. On the third tag I made a cake by stamping the cake from the wedding stamp set and fussy cutting and paper piecing it.
I then created a card base and mounted my 3 tags onto it using foam adhesive.
I loved being able to use so many of the stamps for a super fun look!
Thanks for stopping by the blog today,
Hi all, I am a bit late blogging this but have you seen that Volume 5 of the Sarah Hurley Lookbook is out? You can read it HERE. It is full of inspiration using Sarah’s wonderful products and the design team really pulled out all the stops on their creations!
Here is one of my projects from the Lookbook…. I made a fun dimensional card using the Woodland Wonders kit – this is the cutest kit, full of critters including rabbits – based on my own pair of rabbits. What is not to love about that! I build up quite a lot of dimension on this card, using foam squares and layering. I love making fun scenes like this, and the critters in this set make it hard to resist using!
I made this a simple hello card as I like to send cards just because at times. I know just the person I am sending this card to also and I think they will love it!
Make sure to stop by and read the Lookbook for even more inspiring ways to use Sarah Hurley’s fabulous products!!
Hey, and thanks for stopping by today! I have not been blogging a lot lately, life is a bit hectic! But I am here today with a creation made for Crafty Cutting!! I have been a big fan of their products for ages and am delighted to be on their team along with some other super talented and lovely ladies!
For my first project I used one of the new 6*6 grey board frames to create a fun summer themed piece.
I used the ships wheel shape from the Crafty Cutting Nautical mdf embellishments. I inked it up in bronze. I then added some copper and verdigris embossing powders over it in random places for a old worn feel.
I then cut some nautical themed Graphic 45 papers to fit the front. I stamped a crackle stamp on these and embossed with the copper embossing powder. I also added some of the verdigris powder in random places. I cut a journaling card from the papers and added it inside the frame. I had to add a bit of paper underneath it to make sure the greyboard didn’t show through. I then added foam tape all around the edges. I made sure to leave it in from the edges a few millimeters as I wanted to wrap twine around the outer edges. I then put the frame together. I glued the steering wheel on the top of the frame opening. I love how it sits up above the image in behind. I added some starfish embellishments and some pearls and gems. I also cut some words and images from the papers and added these all on also. The beach rules notice and the main sentiment banner was also cut from the papers. You can see in the image below the twine I wrapped around the edge of the frame. It gives a lovely rustic and nautical look. Here is a view of the entire piece. There is some lovely shimmer off the copper embossing powder in real life!I hope you like my first design team project for Crafty Cutting, I am looking forward to sharing more with you all!
