One Stamp Two Ways!

Hi, everyone! And welcome back. It’s Cassie here again to share a card I’ve made for the Whimsy Stamps blog. My mind has been torn between how I don’t want summer to end, but also how I can’t wait to dive into fall! Is anyone else struggling with this?? To combat that feeling, today I’m taking a stamp that I thought was so cute from Whimsy and making it into two completely different scenes. Let’s take a look!

As you can see, I took the Fairy and Puppy rubber cling stamp and stamped it out twice onto some 110 lb white, Copic friendly card stock. To make two completely different cards I went with two completely different color combos. The Halloween scheme used purples, oranges and a lot of dark grays, whereas the summery one was all about light pink and aqua with light grays. Each image was fussy cut out and I added some adorable white gel pen accents to them for a little interest.

I took two pieces of white card stock that were cut down to 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 and used a cloud stencil to create a puffy cloud background. For the summery card I went with a whimsical pink, and for the Halloween card I used purple and orange for a darker look. Both pieces were spritzed with water to get the great effects of Distress Oxides going.

I also die cut a grass border with the Wavy Edgers Dies. I love the versatility of this die set! Last week I used it for waves, and this week grass. It’s a great set to have. I adhered the grass pieces down to each card base, which were both ink blended with Twisted Citron and Lucky Clover Distress Oxide ink, and adhered the girl and her puppy over that.

I chose a sentiment for both cards that I thought suited them. For the summery card I used a sentiment from Bold Statements set and heat embossed it in gold in the sky. For the Halloween card I used a sentiment from Boo to You which was heat embossed with white embossing powder.

And that was it for my cards today! I hope you enjoyed this post showing how to use a stamp set and get two different results. Thank you so much for stopping by, and I’ll see you again soon with another card!

Happy Halloween!

Good morning, and welcome back to Creatively Cass. I’m here today to share a couple Halloween cards that I’ve made over the last couple months with you.

032

The first card I have was made using a mixture of Your Next Stamp products. I stamped the stars from the Little Darling Super Hero set in VersaMark and heat embossed gold embossing powder over them. I stamped out some cute little images from the  Fab-Boo-Lous and Halloween Graveyard stamp sets to create the scene for my polaroid photo. The polaroid was die cut using the InstaLove Polaroid die. I also used the Washi Tape dies to create a banner for my sentiment.

037

 

This next design you might recognize from the Your Next Stamp September release. I just had to do this design again, only this time I knew I wanted to make it spooky.

I’m not going to describe the design too much, so if you’re interested in how I put it together you can take a look at the card I did for the September release post. I Love how this cute design can work for literally any occasion.

067

The last design I have for you uses a new to me technique that’s become popular again-alcohol inks. I’m no pro at this technique, but it’s really fun to do!

021

I used the alcohol inks to create a spooky background and stamped the Batty Background Ink Splatter over it. I also stamped out some of the candy corn characters from the So Corny set and colored them in with my Copics. I used that Washi Tap die again for my sentiment, which was heat embossed over it.

 

Alright! Those are all my special Halloween cards for this fun and spooky day 🙂 I love Halloween, so these were a treat to make, lol! Who else is celebrating Halloween today? Anyone taking the kiddos out for some trick-or-treating?

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed my projects. Have a great day, and I’ll see you again soon with another card!

YNS Challenge #74

Hello, friends! I’m back with another challenge card for Your Next Stamp. Today I went with the color challenge, because it was a very Halloween-ish photo and I’m so into making Halloween cards right now. Here’s the color challenge:

Doesn’t this just make you want to create a Halloween card?! Also, those treats look amazing! I just might have to make them this year. Alright, here’s the card I made…

055

I die cut the Star Panel Die and taped the back so the stars didn’t fall out. Then I ink blended some Black Soot Distress Ink over the panel and splattered it with water. I stamped and colored in the three pumpkins from Halloween Pumpkins and some of the accessories from Silly Monsters Incognito Two. To color them in I used Zig Real Brush Markers and colored pencils. I recently saw a video by Nina-Marie where she did this, and I had to give it a try. I love the way it turned out, and I can’t wait to do it again. Once everything was dry I fussy cut out all the pieces.

072

I die cut a word bubble from the Talk Bubbles and Arrows dies and stamped my sentiment on it. The two outside pumpkins were attached with adhesive and the middle pumpkin and word bubble were attached with foam tape. I stamped the card base with a stripe background set in orange ink and put the star panel on it. After adding some glossy accents my card was finished!

I hope you enjoyed the card today! Thanks so much for stopping by 🙂 Saturday I have a lot of cards to share for World Card Making Day, so I’ll see you again soon. Have a great day!

Happy Halloween!

Good morning,  friends!  I’m back for a guest post today over at Butterfly Reflections Ink. I’m sharing a Halloween card that I made because, in my mind, it’s never too early to start thinking about Halloween! Please tell me I’m not the only one! 🙂

I’m mixing a bunch of Lawn Fawn products today, to create this cute little trick-or-treating scene. I think part of my love for Halloween card making is making those beautiful night skies with huge full moons! They are sooo fun. I combined the Party Animals, Booyah, and the Big Scripty Words stamp sets to create a cute little characters and sentiment. The Puffy Cloud Borders and Stitched Hillside Borders set the perfect scene for the littler trick-or-treaters.

I used Distress Oxide to color my background and die cut pieces. I always love a good splattered background, but there is something super awesome about a Halloween scene with all that mess.

I even had time to make a video for today’s card! Woot woot! I’m still learning, so it’s not the best video, but hopefully it helps explain the card making process for this card.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you’re all enjoying the last few days of August. Have a great day!


Treats For You

Happy Friday, friends! Today’s card is one that I made a while back, but never had an opportunity to post. I have to admit I really love it! This post is going to be a little picture heavy because I didn’t realize I had already took photos so I took them twice, and then I couldn’t decide which ones to use so I used them all! 😀

111111123

I used the Fab-Boo-lous stamp set (surprise, surprise) to make this bright card. I started with  a 4 1/2 by 4 1/2 piece of water color cardstock and used the Worn Lipstick, Crushed Olive and Wild Honey Distress Ink. I blended the colors onto the paper, and then splattered water all over to give it a messy look.

Next, I die cut some circles using the Stitching Marks die set. I thought this would add some good interest to the card since it was otherwise pretty simple. Next I colored in five of the candy corns using my Copics. I cut them out and ran a black marker over the edges to finish them off.

0111

I added the fun faces from the stamp set to each of the candy corn and arranged them on the card panel. Some were attached directly to the panel and some were attached using foam tape to add some depth.

0061

I finished by stamping the sentiment “treats for you” under the candy corn. I added Glossy Accents and white dots to the candy for some fun details. And that’s it! For such a simple card, there are sure a lot of pictures aren’t there! Thank you so much for stopping by today. I’ll see you again soon with another card!

It’s Kind of a Big Deal…

Good morning, and welcome back to my blog! I’m on the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog today and the card I made is a funny Halloween take on a Christmas stamp set. I saw this Let’s Mingle set and decided it was going to be morphed into a Halloween scene.

Here’s the set for comparison to what the card became:

And here are the trick-or-treat mice they became:

From left to right we have, Minnie Mouse, a Starbucks drink, a pumpkin, a queen and Harry Potter. There’s a ton of information over on the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog on how I made this card and all the products I used to make it, so be sure to head over there to get all the details! Thanks SO much for stopping by today, and I’ll see you soon with another card!!
