CutCardstock Design Team Project: Halloween Fun

It’s hard to believe Halloween will be here soon.  Wasn’t it just Christmas? :).  Today I have a cute rather than creepy Halloween card that’s clean and simple with lots of bright, happy color.  This project was first featured on the CutCardstock blog.

I started off with a comic strip background die I cut from Pop Tone Orange Fizz cardstock and adhered it to the front of a notecard I made using Cougar White Super Smooth 100# cardstock.

Using my stamp platform, I stamped cute little bat and spider images and sentiments in each of the boxes and on the inside.

I colored in the images with with markers and added a few other pieces I colored and cut out to the rest of the empty boxes with foam squares.

I love how the little bat is peeking out from the side!

A cheerful Halloween greeting perfect for little ones’ treat bags or lunch boxes.

Kat Scrappiness Design Team Project: Bright Birthday Wishes

Hi Everyone!  Today I have a bold and bright birthday card using the Wood Grain Framed Diamond Wire Die and some pretty blooms from Mudra’s Wild Rose stamp set.

I started off by die cutting the background  using Gina K. card stock and leaving the  pieces intact.  I love that you can get different looks from this one background die!

I used some tape on the back to secure everything.

Next, I wanted to create a frame for my flowers, so I spread out my Never Ending Rectangle dies to find the perfect size.

I blended some Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Ink all over my chosen panel going from dark to light.

I thought orange flowers would look nice with the purple and yellow, so I used a variety of Copics to color my stamped flowers.

A sentiment from Hero Arts finishes the card.
