Hope everyone’s week has started off well. I’m very excited to share these cards with you today, I think they are my favorite of the cards this year so far. I love the look of a minimal white card but in all honesty, they take me a lot longer to come up with. Well worth the effort I think though. Here is a look at how I put them together:
And here are your close-ups
This little guy is so cute – he is so much fun to accessorize and there are loads of accessories in the Bear Wear stamp sets.
That strip of glitter adds just that little extra the card was needing.
The sentiments in the Witch Way stamp set are so perfect – I use them multiple times every Halloween.
Isn’t that mask just adorable? This little guy is ready to collect lots of candy.
I think the negative space is always the most difficult part of these type of cards and a little splatter can always help if it’s feeling too white.
A strip of colored cardstock can do the same thing for the inside.
I love how simple and graphic these are – they’d make really great party invitations!
As always, thanks for stopping by today. xoxo, Sarah
My goodness, I am running so far behind (story of my life lately). I’m going to have to double up on some days to get all 13 in before the end of the month!! Today I’ve got 3 cards for you using the new Simon Says Stamp Frightfully Fun set. I really love all the sentiments especially the punny ones for the skeleton. Here is the video of what I came up with :
And of course, here are your still shots:
Love these dancing skeletons – this such a fun image to work with.
and I can’t get enough of those punny sentiments.
Prismacolors: 935, 289, 122, 918, 912
I had so much fun using my copics to color this and am really pleased with how that woodgrain came out. I want to learn more about copic coloring…if only there was more time in the day…
More punny goodness.
Copics: Y32, E13, E15, E18, N0, N4, R20, YG25, Y35, YR04, YR07
Since I figure a lot of you purchased the Halloween Card Kit I thought I’d add in some of the papers and ephemera with this one.
This is why I always save scraps (or rather my excuse for saving all of them, lol) this was the perfect way to finish off the inside panel.
Thanks so much for stopping by to check out my cards. xoxo, Sarah
I’ve been working all weekend on projects for this Halloween series and am in love with how this card came out. It’s been in my head for a few days so I was really happy to get it down on paper and that it turned out as I was planning. Here is the video of how it came together…
Here are some stills of the finished card:
Doesn’t that look like a cave full of bats! This is the first time I’ve colored in a background around stamped images and I’m for sure doing more of that.
Here is a close up of that little cutie! you can see how that colored pencil (though not necessary) gives just that little bit of extra.
Prismacolors: 1054, 289, 1013
With the front being so busy I kept the inside simple, but couldn’t resist adding a little pop of orange washi tape.
Here is that rip strip in action:
As always, thanks for stopping by. Hope I was able to give you some inspiration for your next project! xoxo, Sarah
I’ve got my favorite, The Nightmare Before Christmas, playing in the background and just settled in with a cup of hot cocoa to get down to typing and uploading today’s video. It’s freezing in Baltimore and I’m afraid we may have skipped Fall altogether this year! I guess that means I should create more fall cards to make up for it 🙂
I got the idea for these shakers from Rachel Tallman – she is amazing, I always get inspiration from her beautiful work. She did some of these with her spring blitz this year and I’ve been wanting to give it a try since then.
Here is what I came up with:
And here are some stills:
This one is my favorite of the bunch, mostly because of that ribbon – which took forever! I’m so disappointed that I lost the video of how I attached it but I will be making more of these and will add that in next time.
Here’s a side view so you can really see the texture and dimension that ruffled ribbon created.
Love this guy! His expression is so great – I would love to have him as a trick or treater so I surrounded him with candy.
My favorite part of this is the spider web – I used some scor tape around the edges on the back (before I put on the ribbon), and then just wrapped the string around the corners a few times. Then I glued all over the back and placed that down on some Neenah paper and trimmed around the edge again. Then I slid the ribbon behind the string on the front and stuck it down.
All in all, I’m really pleased with how they came out. I used mostly items from the Halloween Kit I put together but will add links to the additional items used below. As always, thanks for stopping by. xoxo, Sarah
Today I’m sharing a quick unboxing video of a surprise Halloween happy mail package I received from Alexandra. Thank you – you totally made my day!!!
Here are some close-ups of the goodies:
Ahh – in LOVE with these rosettes. the picture doesn’t do them justice – that glitter is gorgeous 🙂
Thanks again to Alexandra! and thanks to you for stopping by! xoxo, Sarah
