  • Halloween Greetings

    A stenciled & die cut mini slimline Halloween card. Easy to make & change up the colors or use a colored designer paper for the background. So many ways to customize the look.

    A big congrats to Dbamesburg, the newest Featured Stamper (FS866)! She has a sweet little gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the 1 layer style & left side arrangement but used different images, colors & made mine a Halloween theme instead of Christmas.

    My mini slimline card started w/ a yellow/orange/purple background I made ages ago. It was done by spreading Marvy metallic markers onto a brayer, spritzing w/ water then rolling it across the white card stock. The colors seemed very Halloweeny to me, so I used the stencil & azure ink to sponge in the tree & background bats. For the moon, I sponged the stencil w/ 2 yellow inks onto a small piece of white, die cut it w/ circle die & attached it on top. I used another stencil to add the grass across the bottom to ground it.

    A few die cut purple bats were added on top as well as the tombstone & hand.  A small piece of purple die cut grass was added across the bottom of the tombstone. I positioned the greeting tag so it would appear the hand was holding it.

    Thanks so
    much for stopping by!

  • Stir Up Trouble

    A fun Halloween card w/ a cute smiling cup, stenciled background & glittery goo border. Easy to make & easy to change the colors to go w/ your selection of Halloween paper.

    For the Inspiration Challenge (IC927), we’re visiting Country Living Pinterest Board where I found THIS cute picture.

    My little Halloween card is pretty easy. I colored the cute little smiling cup then die cut it w/ stitched circle die. I used my out of the box  for the stir stick to keep from chopping it off. The designer paper strip & purple strip behind it were die cut using 2 sizes of slimline dies, since I wanted them narrower than normal rectangle dies. I used my resizing trick to make them shorter. For the top section, I used a fun jack-o’lantern face stencil & lost shadow oxide ink for that barely there look. The orange drippy goo die cut was draped across the top of the purple strip & I added stickles to it & a couple of areas on the cup.

    The center circle was popped up a bit & I added an extra layer behind the top half of the circle to even it out w/ the added layers on the bottom.

    Here are the Copics I used:

  • Red Holiday Door

    With this bright cheery holiday door, there’s no place like home for the holidays. A few die cuts, a greeting & a lightly stenciled brick facade complete this mini slimline card.

    For the Inspiration Challenge (IC924), we visited DeWinton Paper Co & their Pinterest Board. I chose THIS for my inspiration.

    My mini slimline was fairly easy. I die cut the parts for the door w/ the added winter door parts out of red, white & green scraps. I didn’t use all the dies that come w/ both of these sets. After putting them together, I took a white pencil & a red Copic and added a little distressing to the door. I used a white Posca pen to add some snow on top of a few areas. A repeating brick stencil was used for the appearance of a brick facade behind the door.

    I used a red Posca pen to add the berries on the wreath & topiary. The greeting was stamped under the door & I colored & die cut a little holly pine cone element to place in the corner next to the greeting.

    Thanks so much for stopping by!
