Witch Bear and Bat Bird

Hi!

Today I’m sharing a card featuring the fabulous “Boo” stamp set from Waffle Flower. I think the bear and the bird look great in their costumes! Although Halloween is not very popular in Spain, I have weakness for all Halloween themed things. Plus, as a child I loooooved witches, and I still love them. It was a very strange thing, because 6 year-old girls don’t have witches all over their room, but I did! So when I saw this stamp set immediately fell in love with it.

For making this card, first I stamped the images on Strathmore Drawing paper using Versafine Onyx black ink and colored them with Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils. Then, I fussy cut all the images. For my background I blended Shaded Lilac, Seedless Preserves and Dusty Concord Distress Inks on a piece of Bristol paper, splattered some water and dried it with a paper towel after few seconds.

Next, I die cut some trees from white cardstock using Mama Elephant “Birch trees” dies and some grass from black cardstock using Lawn Fawn “Grassy borders” dies. Then, I used Lawn Fawn ” Puffy cloud borders” dies on a piece of vellum spritzed with a mixture of Perfect Pearls and water and on a piece of Bristol paper. On the latter, I blended Pumice Stone Distress Ink, stamped the sentiment from Mama Elephant “Meowlloween Extras” stamp set with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it using white embossing powder.

I adhered the trees and the vellum clouds to the background panel and then I glued some clear thread to the backside of the bear, because I wanted it to be suspended. I glued the ends of the thread to the upper and lower parts of the panel and then adhered the grass and the clouds using foam tape. Last, I adhered the rest of the images using foam tape and added some Wink of Stella on the witch hat.

I hope you have a wonderful Halloween filled with candy.

Thanks for stopping by!

CASometry Challenge 3: Stage 1

Hi!

I’m so excited because I’m participating in Anna Kossakovskaya‘s CASometry Challenge 3. Randomizer! For the first stage I had to pick a random stamp set as a main focus for my card, and then choose any geometric shape.

I asked my boyfriend to choose a stamp set for me, and he selected Lawn Fawn “Booyah” stamp set. I told him “What?! A Halloween stamp set? A Halloween card on April?” And he said “Why do you say this is a Halloween stamp set?” A I was like “you know, because of the ghosts, the costumes, the Halloween sentiments…” Hehehe, anyway, I loooooove this set my sister gifted me on Christmas! I think it’s super fun and I was looking forward to using it, and now I have the perfect pretext :p The geometric shape I chose was Simon Says Stamp “Triangle Border Craft” die.

First, I trimmed a piece of black cardstock, die cut it with the “Triangle Border” die and glued it to another piece of black cardstock. Then I die cut three pieces of purple, orange and green cardstock and saved the little triangles for making die cut inlaying. It was a little bit time consuming, but totally worth it! I trimmed six stripes of color cardstock, two of each color, and adhered them to the upper and bottom part of the card base. After that, I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink, heat embossed it using white embossing powder and adhered this panel with foam tape to the card base.

Last, I stamped the images on Bristol paper using Versafine Onyx Black ink, colored them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers, fussy cut and adhered everything to the front panel with foam tape.

I’m quite happy with the result! What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by! Have a nice day!!

Interactive Halloween Card

Hi!!

Today I show you my first Halloween card of the year. In Spain we don’t celebrate Halloween, but I wish we did, because all the costumes and the candies… it’s so fun! So this year I want to make some proyects to share with my family and friends 🙂

I’ve choosen these fantastic Mama Elephant stamp sets designed by Luli Bunny: Meowlloween and Meowlloween Extras. You know, I love cats!

I wated to make a scene to look like Dracula’s castle, with the hardwood floor, the wallpaper and the family portraits… and then my boyfriend told me: “why don’t you make the portrait’s eyes move, like in horror movies?” and I tought it would be fun!

I stamped the vapire cat on Bristol paper with VersaFine onyx black ink. For the portrait, I stamped the frame from Lawn Fawn “Flirty Frames” stamp set with VersaMark and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. Then I did some masking to stamp the witch cat inside the frame with VersaFine onyx black ink. For the floor I stamped Lawn Fawn “Woodgrain backdrops” stamp with Memento peanut brittle ink. Then I colored everything with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and I used a gold gel pen for the portrait frame.

For the background I used some Graphic 45 paper. I stamped the sentiment with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it using Ranger Super Fine White embossing powder. Then I adhered everything together with double sided tape and foam tape and adhered the front panel to a black card base.

To make the portrait eyes moving I did like a slider card, but I put a tab to move the eyes with the word “pull” heat embossed with white on black cardstock.

You can see the portrait’s eyes moving here.
