Halloween Decor with Etchall

Hi everyone, it's time to start thinking about Halloween.  Are you ready?

Placing etchallⓇ dip 'n etch in 2 containers, I put the jars in the containers and let them sit for approximately 15 minutes.

Removing the jars, I poured the dip 'n etch liquid back in it's original container.  It's reusable so you can save it for future projects.

The jars were rinsed and dried.

Then I decorated each with ribbons and bows and Halloween elements to create a Halloween centerpiece.

Thinking About You

Hi everyone, just know I'm thinking about you today.

Using Memory Box, I die cut the flower from white and green cardstock.  To fill in the flower pieces, I also die cut another layer from pattern paper.

Under the Sea with Oscar

 Hi everyone, I have another Fairy Stamper project to share.  

I created a background using the Gel Press and paints in shades of green and blue.  After pulling several prints, I found the one I liked the best for Oscar.

Once the panel was dry, I cut it to size and stamped Fairy Hugs Oscar in black ink slightly off the panel.  Oscar was one of my very first Fairy Hugs stamps and I love him.  Then I stamped Fairy Hugs Hanging Vines to simulate seeweed along the bottom.  Oscar looks like he's happily playing under the sea.

The panel was matted with white cardstock then added to a blue card.

Autumn Blessings 2021

 Hi everyone, I have a sweet card to share full of Autumn Blessings.

Pink and Main has sweet stamps and coordinating dies.  After stamping the images and coloring with Copic Markers, I then die cut them.

To complete the autumn effect, I die cut a piece of burlap to use on the center of the card.

I adhered the layers together using Tape Runner adhesives.

Spooky Halloween Treat Bags

Hi everyone, I'm sharing some spooky Halloween Treats using assorted TLC Designs products.

I've used the Creeping It Real Slimline Digital Paper, the Creeping it Real Digital Stamp Set and the Zinnia Slimline Die to create these fun candy toppers.

I used the largest Zinnia die to die cut the topper, then used the smallest Zinnia die to die cut the paper, cutting it in half to fit 2 candy toppers

I fussy cut the skulls and bats, then used the smallest die from the Celebrate Frame die set to die cut the phrases.  Then I simply attached the toppers to candy bags for this year's Halloween Party.

Time to Celebrate Slimline Card

 Hi everyone, DT-Steph Ackerman here to share a sweet card using assorted TLC Designs products.

Have you seen the new Zinnia Slimline Die?  It's a fabulous shape and makes a wonderful card.

I began by folding cardstock in half and die cutting the largest die slightly over the folded edge so the card stayed together.

Since the card had one flat edge, I die cut the largest die again and added it to the base so the full die shape would be visible.

Using the Watercolor Naturals Slimline Stock Paper, I used the smaller die to die cut the panel for the center of the card onto which I would add my elements.  I stamped and fussy cut the Foraging Fairies Digital Images, coloring them with Copic Markers.

Finally I stamped celebrate from the Celebrate Sentiments stamp set, punched it out and added it to the card.

Autumn Pop Up Card

 Hi everyone, I'm on the Dies R Us blog with a fabulous easel card.

Autumn is my time of year.  I love it.  

This Poppy die was perfect to create a wonderful Fall themed card.

This die comes with everything you need to create a Pop Up Easel Card.  It even folds flat to fit in a standard envelope.

Creating a card from green cardstock with the base die and the second layer, I then die cut the top layer from a script paper.   I inked this layer with Distress Inks in green, brown and red to simulate the colors of fall.

Using oval dies, I die cut 2 layers, stamping the phrase on the top layer.
The card was assembled with foam adhesives between the layers for dimension.

Stop by the Dies R Us Store to see all the amazing dies that are available.

Graphic 45 Tags

Hi everyone, I've got a set of tags using some beautiful papers from Graphic 45.

I started by inking chipboard tags in a variety of colors.

Using office tags, I cut Graphic 45 papers to fit and used Taperunner to adhere the layers.

I added ribbon to the tags and adhered additional tags to the tags to complete them.
