Boo!

Hi!  Was having some fun with my little owl in the tree and the angle cut DSP technique to come up with this card:

Have a Hoot, Halloween, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2020AugDecMini

The Magic In the Night Designer Series Paper makes a great background for this owl who is spooked by the spider.  Easy and cute Halloween card if you are looking to mass produce.  The Stitched Shapes and Layering Oval dies are used to highlight the owl.

The main image is stamped with Memento Ink and colored with Stampin’ Blends markers.

The base is Rich Razzleberry cardstock.

If you haven’t checked out the Easy Cut corner Designer Series Paper technique, you’ll find it showcased in this post.

Circle of Life

Hi!  Welcome to the Stamp It Group August Blog Hop featuring Fall!!  I am very excited to be a part of the Blog Hop this month as it has been a while since I’ve been able to participate.  I have a little different spin for you today featuring the Life is Beautiful Stamp set from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog.

Hello, Friendship, Fall, Life is Beautiful, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2020AugDecMini, #StampItBlogHop

 

So, my twist on this card – there are two.  First, I used the tree image as a branch – I love to do this – so many fun things to do when turned sideways.  The second – I didn’t have a circle die large enough to create a mat for the stamped image so instead I die cut 3 smaller circles from various cardstock and used them to create a mat.  I love how it turned out!  Oh and 3rd, I used my Stampin’ Blend – Cajun Craze – color the rhinestones on the card.

Here’s a video showing how I made the card (it is the second card in the video):

Then And Now

Hi!  I realized recently that I had started my Facebook Business Page ten years ago back in July.  I went looking through some of those projects from then and came across this card:

House of Haunts, Halloween, Stampin' Up!, SU!,

This features the House of Haunts Halloween set, Old Olive cardstock – I think Daffodil Delight -but not sure, and of course Basic Black.   This was the age before I learned how to improve my photos – so this is an as is picture – I think I used a scanner.

Apparently, I still have a thing for Owls and Trees for Halloween, as I recently made this card during a Facebook Live:

Have a Hoot, Halloween, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #AugDec2020Mini

I guess in 10 years I have stepped up my game a little with card making – a few more layers, die cuts, Designer Series Paper.  Tho still using masking to create my moon for the owl.

Here’s the video showcasing this card (and a quick little treat holder, too):

I truly enjoy taking a trip down memory lane and hope you do, too.   While I cannot supply you with the products used to make the card 10 years ago, below you will find the list of products for my most recent Owl in a Tree.

Autumn Harvest

Hi!  Today I have a card using the new Autumn Goodness bundle from the Aug-Dec 2020 Mini Catalog.   What says fall more than this autumn harvest?

Fall, Autumn Goodness, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #AugDec2020MiniCatalog

I love coloring with our Watercolor Pencils and a Blender Pen – so fun and easy to do.  The harvest image is stamped in Soft Suede ink.  You could also go with a lighter ink color for a softer look.  I used a mix of both the Watercolor Pencils and Watercolor Pencils Assortment 2.

The Wheelbarrow is stamped with Early Espresso ink and then I used a blender pen to color in the image – this allowed me to pull the ink from the stamped image giving it a deeper wood grain look.

For the background, I just dragged an Old Olive and Balmy Blue ink pad over the cardstock.  A very quick way to produce a background.  The fence is die cut from the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper.

The base is Crumb Cake cardstock – measuring 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and folded in half.  The image panel is Whisper White – 3 3/4″ x 5″ mounted on an Early Espresso mat measuring 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″.

If you want to see how I colored and created the background, check out this video:
