Trick or Treat

Hello friends!!Today I have a Halloween card for you!
Halloween is just around the corner and if you like to create fun cards and decorations, I think this card is just a fun one for you to recreate.


For this project I used Boo Convention background stamp. 
I stamped the background on a piece of White cardstock in Black ink, then sprayed it with Dragon Blood Shimmering Bliss, after it dried I die-cut the image using circle dies, then added the circles to a piece of black cardstock and used a rectangle stitched die and die-cut the piece again.
Added the rectangle piece to a black scalloped piece.
Adhered the panel to a A2 white card base.
Stamped the sentiment Trick or Treat on a piece of white cardstock in black ink, then added a bit of color using a gray and red markers.
Added yellow twine behind the sentiment, finally added clear sequins.



You can get these images and the wonderful Shimmering bliss with a 10% discount using my code

Hope you like this project.
 Have an amazing day!

Fun cards with stencils!!

Hello friends!! Hope you all are having a great day, midweek, all we can say is the weekend is coming, hehehe
Anyway, I have a couple of cards I created using stencils as the main focus! Recently I got stencils from A Colorful Life Designs!! They have a great selection of unique stencils, you should check them out.

OK, let me show you the cards I created.
Fall
For this card I used Leaf Set 1 and Leaf Set 2, I started from the bottom left and going all the way around using both stencils and different color of inks, the ones I used are   IO Banana, Canary, Sienna, Mint, Pistachio, Wilted Violet Distress Oxide, Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide on a piece of watercolor paper. 
After getting all the leaves the way I wanted them, I die-cut the panel using scallop stitched die, then stamped the Fall sentiment. Distressed all edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink, added yellow twine, added foam adhesive behind and adhered it to a white card base.



Hello
This card was super fast to make. For this project I used Showy Blooms Stencil. I used Wilted Violet Distress Oxide, Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide on a piece of watercolor paper. 
After the panel was done, I used rectangle stitched dies to create 3 panels, the largest panel was adhered direct onto the white card base, the middle piece was adhered with 1 layer of foam adhesive and the smallest piece was adhered with 2 layers of foam adhesive.
Before adding the foam adhesive to the smallest piece, I stamped the sentiment.
After that I mist the piece with a bit of water.


I hope you like these cards and check out the A Colorful Life Designs Store, you will fall in love with many of its designs.
I also invite you to join us on Facebook!! A super fun group sharing projects using A Colorful Life Designs Stencils!!

For my card I die-cut a big and small panel from Black Damask 12"x12" paper, then die-cut the sentiment from Belong Together Patterned Paper, added all the panels to a A2 size White card base.
I colored a page from Hello Friend Mini Coloring Book using Copic Markers (V01, V06, V12, V15), then added Wink of Stella to add some shimmer, then cut out just the small flower from the page and added next to the sentiment.
Finally, embellished the card adding sequins and pearls.

You got this

Hello friends!! Happy Wednesday! I have a super cool vintage-looking kinda coffee card!
But first, I am slowly crafting again, I wanted to post this few days ago, but sadly my hands were hurting really bad, it doesn't hurt as bad so I am slowly creating. I have not gone to the doctor but I got a bump on my wrist and talking to a friend she mentioned maybe it is "Baker's cyst", never heard of that before until then, and some online pictures look very similar on how my worst looks like. Anyways, sorry for posting this few days later.

OK, thanks to Spellbinders for this super cool die! I think this one of my favorites and it is gorgeous! It is called Shapeabilities Blooming Brew Etched Dies from the new Cuppa Coffee, Cuppa Tea Collection by Sharyn Sowell.

For my card I wanted a Vintage look. First, I die-cut this gorgeous image on a piece of watercolor paper, colored it with Spectrum Noir AquaBlend Pencils, then added Sparkle Pens to make the image very shimmery.
Then die-cut 3 more pieces in brown cardstock and glue them together, you could use this amazing adhesive sheets too, I have only a bit left that's why I used glue, then adhered the watercolor piece, after that sponged the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

Stamped the sentiment from Coffee Lovers Clear Set, using my MISTI and Black Ink.
Before adhering the piece to the card base, I misted the front of a white card base with Imperial Yellow Shimmering Bliss, once it was dry I adhered the die-cut piece.


I added few sequins and the card was done!

You can see the shimmering action, it is beautiful!

Hope you like it and get inspired!
Have a wonderful day!
