• Boo Coffee

    A cute, colorful Halloween card featuring some adorable little ghosts & a ghost cup of coffee. Quick & easy to make & simple to change up the colors to go w/ any Halloween paper you want to use.

    A big congrats to Betty, the newest Featured Stamper! She has a terrific gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the layout w/ the little balloon overhead, but used different images, dies & colors & made mine a Halloween theme instead of get well.

    After coloring & die cutting the big ghost coffee cup, I stamped the other 2 ghosts on a large panel & colored in the Halloween greeting,  The balloon was die cut, stamped w/ the Boo word bubble then colored. The ghost cup & balloon were popped up a little on top of the background.

    Here are the Copics I used:

  • Pumpkin Spice

    A pretty fall coffee card using a tall coffee go cup and some lovely fall paper for the background. Easy to make and perfect for a coffee lover who loves pumpkin spice and fall.

    For the Inspiration Challenge (IC929) we’re visiting Loft & their Pinterest Board. I used THIS shirt for my inspiration.

    My card is pretty easy. After die cutting the go cup parts out of different colors, I ran the kraft colored sleeve part thru my crimper to give it the sleeve look. The little pumpkins & leaves spray was colored & die cut to attach on top of it. I used a smaller mini slimline die to cut the long panel behind it then used a plaid piercing cover die on top of it to give it some texture. The other pumpkin and some leaves were also colored & die cut. I used a stitched circle for the greeting & a leftover white circle (colored w/ a Copic to match) for the backing. The pretty paper (coming soon!) was die cut & I added a narrow pumpkin colored layer behind it & the slimline panel.

    The go cup was shaped a little to give it that rounded look. To keep its shape, I ran a piece of cardboard thru the crimper & folded it a couple of times then attached it to the center part of the cup.

  • Halloween Truck

    A colorful, easy, Halloween card w/ a cute truckload of trick or treaters. Basically a 1 layer card w/ a bright brayered background.

    It’s my turn to host the Featured Stamper Challenge (FS867) & a big congrats to Brian! He has a terrific gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the bright bg & frame layout, but used different images, used a smaller image for the center & made it smaller & my frame is stamped instead of an actual frame.

    My card started w/ a leftover background I made for another card. I only used a strip of the bottom part so I had this whole piece left. I thought the colors were great for Halloween so I colored the little image, die cut & added it to a white square. For the black road, I used a small portion of a mountain die cut. I liked the way it narrowed behind them like a road would. I used a set of freehand borders on the top & sides & I already had the texture strip bg stamped across the bottom.

    The image square is popped up a bit & I added some Halloween colored stickles to the centers of the pattern on the bottom.
