I stamped the tree, keeping it simple, before I realized the name of the stamp!
Once I realized it's name, I created a second card. I stamped the tree as I did for the first card, but then I re-stamped the moon on yellow cardstock. Next, I die cut the moon and placed it on the main image, lining up the tree branches.
Both cards use Happy Halloween sentiments from Sentiment 1.
I chose to stamp all images as one to create a background, adding selective color to the images.
I inked the panel with brown ink, then matted the panel with black cardstock then orange cardstock. I wrapped ribbon around the panel before adding it to a black panel. Coordinating twine was tied to the knot.
Using the phrase from Studio Light - Butterflies - I stamped each word individually on orange cardstock, then die cut. After matting with a larger black die, I added the phrase to the card with foam adhesives for dimension.
Thanks for stopping by and please pop by my blog for more crafty inspiration.
Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today with another post for Sunsational Stamps. This month we are getting ready for Fall and Halloween. Be sure to check out the store for some fun stamps perfect for the season.
Today I'm using Happy Fall Y'all. Love how the cute hedgehog is hugging those pumpkins.
I used several colors of distress inks and a water brush to color the images. I started with a light shade of brown on the pumpkins, then added dark brown and dark orange highlights with a touch of green for the leaves. The hedgehog was also lightly inked with a pale cream ink.
The panel was inked with brown ink then matted with green and black cardstock. The card was distressed before the panel was added.
Happy Fall Y'all! was cut apart, inked and matted to match the image. Then the phrase was added to the card with foam adhesives for dimension.
Happy Fall everyone. Today I've got a new project to share using products from EtchallⓇ.
Did you know that etchall has a stencil spray? It's perfect to use with all stencils. And it worked perfectly with a 12" Crafter's Workshop Stencil. Just spray the stencil completely and let dry till it becomes tacky. Then, place the stencil around the jar - no tape necessary!
I covered the jarwith etchallⓇ etching crème. As you can see, my etching crème has darkened over time, but that does not affect it's use.
I waited 15 minutes then removed the etching crème, scraping it back into it's bottle. Etchall is reusable so be sure to scrape as much as you can back into the bottle. Place the jar under running water to remove the remaining etching crème before removing the stencil.
Allow to dry completely before continuing.
I painted orange paint on the jar and allowed it to dry completely. Etching the jar allows the glass to have some "tooth" to which the paint can adhere.
I then used a baby wipe to remove some of the paint . As you can see, the paint adhered to the etched portions of the jar. To achieve a streaky look, I simply I rubbed a little harder to remove some more of the paint.
Decorate as desired. I added some pretty fall ribbon to the top and placed a flower in the center.
Fill the jar with an assortment of items or simply use it for a decorative purpose amongst the pumpkins as shown here.
Hi everyone, it's time for fall decorating. Fall is definitely in the air here in New York. The days are getting crisper and the nights longer. The colors are changing and that means it's time to change up your fall decorations.
Hi everyone, when you need a delicate wedding card, what are your go-to products?
I love to use Rinea Foiled Papers. These foils create amazing projects. Add in an amazing intricate die by Tutti Designs and you've got a wonderful card to share with the happy couple.
I used Copper/Copper Glossy Foiled Paper, die cutting it with the Rose Garden Tutti Designs die.
Use the Spellbinders 3 'n 1 tool to release the die cut and all the little pieces.
I wanted the foil to really stand out so I matted it on a piece of black cardstock before adding it to the card.
I stamped and embossed Mr. & Mrs. on black cardstock and then die cut it. Then I used the center portion of the die cut foil to die cut a larger oval. For dimension, I added the ovals to the center of the card with foam adhesives.
I wanted to create a hanging panel so I began by cutting the 12" x 18" Premiumfelt to 9" x 12" then I added a pom pom border to the panel, simply gluing it in place.
Using the 9" x 12" Classicfelt in yellow, I die cut a large oval using Spellbinders dies. For a perfect cut, I added a shim of cardstock under the felt and it cut beautifully. I then used Ranger Distress Ink with a Hero Arts Stamp to add a touch of color.
Using a Sizzix die, I cut the Vintage Couple from 9" x 12" Classicfelt in black, then adhered them to the oval and placed that on the panel.
The vintage hanger was die cut from 9" x 12" Classicfelt in black using another Sizzix die and an oval was die cut from white felt with another Spellbinders die. Using a stamp from Joy Clair, I stamped Merry Christmas in black ink on the 9" x 12" Classicfelt in white.
To finish, I folded down approximately 1" across the top of the panel and glued it in place. A small rod was placed through and then ribbon was tied creating the hanger.
