Halloween Greetings | My favorite things

Hi everyone! I really looked forward to crafting after a short business trip. I created a halloween card using different my favorite things products.

First I made a background with citrus alcohol ink. I only used this one color and I love how it turned out!

Then I stamped all the images from 'frightfully sweet', 'frightful friends' and 'fab-boo-lous'. After coloring them in with Copics I diecut the images and went on with the scene building.

So for the spooky scene I used the 'birch trees' die to create some trees. With the 'stitched rectangle stax' (with that I also diecut the background) and one of the 'stitched basic edges 2' dies I also made a wonky hill. 

After adhering everything to the green background I went on with the cardbase itself.
I didn't want to  use a white cardbase since the contrast was too intense. With a black cardbase it would be too dark. So I took a white one and blended hickory smoke distress  oxide ink. Then I used the 'marble background' stamp (I love this!!) with black ink and created a not too light - not too dark background.

Last but not least I adhered the scene with green fun foam to the cardbase.

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a frightfully sweet day!

Christmas in August #4 | Lawn Fawn

Hello there! Next Saturday I will pick up my Lawn Fawn order and until that I wanted to make a card with the older set 'frosty fairy friends' which is still one of my favorites. 

I started with the front of the interactive card by applying distress inks onto a square watercolor piece of paper. After sprinkling some water and color droplets I also added the sentiment and diecut the largest of the  'lift the flap circles' dies.

Next I stamped all the images and colored them in with my Copic markers. I decorated the front with some of the images. I took a piece of white cardstock and applied some distress oxide inks to add some color. Then I adhered the rest of the images to create a little scene.

I adhered the front to the winter wonderland scene and chose a craft cardbase. Last but not least I added Nuvo crystal drops for more interest.

Thank you so much for stopping by and have an awesome day!

Born a long time ago | My favorite things

Hello everyone! After some Christmas cards I share a birthday card with you today. I used the adorable stamp set 'delightful dinosaurs' from My favorite things with that awesome sentiment :)

First I created the background by using a watercolor paper and distress inks. I diecut the paper with the largest of the 'stitched rectangle stax' set and used the clouds and grassy edge stencil to create grass layers as well as a cloudy sky. I chose the color tea dye for the earth tone and shabby shutters/peeled paint for the grass. Tumbled glass is of course for the sky.

I also diecut some additional landscape pars with the "icebergs" and some grass dies from the retired 'jungle friends' sets.

The dinosaurs are stamped with Memento tuxedo black and colored in with Copic markers. I added the sentiment with doe ink and added some Nuvo crystal drops in morning dew.

Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!
