Spooky pumpkin Halloween card

hello,  today I went with another sketch from Mary at cardz TV.   I decided to keep it fairly simple today and used up some of my scraps.
The awesome crow/bat frame and the spooky pumpkin are both from Cricut Happy Hauntings cartridge. I popped the pumpkin up on foam tape and added some purple gems to the frame.  The boo stamp is an old one from my stash of scrapbooking sentiment stamps and from OTC.   I used my stitched label for my stamping but I used the long straight stitched die (Simon says stamp – bundle of stitched shapes) to cut the end of the tag off so it still has stitching all the way around.

Gingerbread pop-up card

I had so much fun working with Cheryl's files over at CreativeKuts.com again last week.  I think this one was my favorite of this card collaboration.   It was definitely a lot of detail work and took quite a bit of time to make but I am quite happy with the outcome.

 For the front you just have this adorable gingerbread girl .... Love her!  I have of course leaned towards the non traditional colors as I normally do.  I had to dress her up in pink and give her light pink frosting hair!  Right? Lol. The face stamp is from Peachy Keen.   I used my white gel pen on her eyes some pink puffy paint for her nose and pink chalk for her cheeks.   The embossing on her dress is from the Cuttlebug simply charmed folder set.  The background paper is from the paper crate - snow days stack. The Merry Christmas stamp is from whimsical Christmas... I colored in with a pink spectrum Noir marker.    The teeny tiny gingerbread men were buttons from my stash that I removed the back hole or loop with my wire cutters. I went over sentiment stamp and pink frosting hair and foot  frosting squiggles with my wink of Stella clear glitter pen.   I wish you could see all the sparkle and shimmer... maybe I need to take a better close-up picture for you.

Isn't the inside pop-up just too darn cute?   I again used my Cuttlebug simply charmed embossing folder for the house and the little door mat.  Instead of doing the white snow dripping off of the roof chimney and hedges I decided to make it dripping pink frosting to stay with the theme from the front of my card.   I did add some clear dimensional paint over the pink frosting and added a clear fine glitter to it.   I also added that to the pink and purple brick walkway. The brown squares paper on each end is from the same paper pack as the front .... but the glitter polkadot pink and white paper is a scrap from my stash.   I used my Martha Stewart punch for the pink Loopy border along with my Victorian cut from my paper trimmer to add the cute pink borders on my card inside.   I then stamped a cute gingerbread man several times (6) on Brown paper which I cut out with my SNC2.  I used my white gel pen for his frosting and the dots on his tie. A pink gel pen for the little hearts on his mouth.  I used alternating colors of pink puffy paint for the buttons.   In between the gingers I added some more rhinestone bling from my stash.  Oh and a small pink rhinestone for the door knob. And one last addition I added a cute heart shaped wreath on the door that I stamped from a cute vintage stamp set in my stash which I colored in with my spectrum noir pens.

Pink Grunge Foiled Birthday

Todays card is based on Mary's Sketch #3 over at Cardz TV.  Today I was playing around with a new technique by foiling die-cuts with the Essential Glue Pad and using no heat and with no foiling machine.  I tried this on a designer paper that I realized it was too hard to make out the words with the sporadic prints all over it so I decided it would be better if I covered with foil so I could still use it as I hate to waste paper or cardstock lol. 
So I am not sure if the glossy finish on this pattern paper is what caused the foil not to stick everywhere but I am assuming so.  I thought it still looked cool in a sort of a grunge way so I thought I would try to make a card it would suit.  Here is what I came up with...
It is hard to tell in the photo but the foil is a rose gold and the places it didn't stick to are mostly the hot pink shining through so I kind of like it for this card.  I used a pencil to trace around the metal Happy Birthday Gift die so I could cut a shadow layer in black on my SNC2, came out perfect!  Down at the bottom of the card I didn't need a sentiment Banner since my Die-cut says it all, so I created a cool banner type embellishment with some of my dies.  I added foam tape under the top star and then placed a dew drop on top.  I also placed a dew drop on the center of the bow on the gift. 
Products I used:
Solid Card Stocks - Recollections
Pink Foil Star Stripe - DCWV, Glam Rock
Black & Grey Foil Star Stripe - Pressed Petals, Punk
Light Pink Card Base - Spellbinders Card Creator die
Black Rectangle Stitched layer - Simon Says Stamp dies - Bundle of Stitched Shapes

Such a fun simple Birthday card to add to my stash, as a matter of fact it was so simple I decided to throw another similar one together while I had out all of the supplies.  This time adding some cool glitter effects on the Birthday die cut and changing up the banner a bit and rotating the stripe paper.  Oh I also used Simply Charmed embossing folder for this one.

Fall Pumpkin pop up card

What a cool card cut this is for Fall or Halloween from Cheryl over at Creative Kuts
What's more is it is just the card base cut and the 3-D pumpkins and a background layer in this  file everything else you decide what you want to add.   This will definitely be a go to card file in my stash for fall and Halloween.   As a matter of fact I think I will be making a Halloween version of this card later today.
In the far background I used a falling leaves die-cut from spellbinders that I had inked up with my distress inks as watercolors.   I also created the brown frame to go around that and I did a border strip in the same color with a Victorian edge cut at top and bottom.  The single leaves are from crafters companion also inked up with Distress inks.   The adorable bear with the pumpkins stamp are from Desert Craftin Divas that I colored with my Spectrum Noir markers  and cut out with my ScanNCut2. The sentiment is also from that same stamp set which I stamped in brown pigment ink onto a spellbinders labels 20 die-cut that I had inked up with old photo distress ink and walnut stain around the edges.  For the pumpkins that I inked the edges of each piece in walnut stain distress ink first, then I layered them up with no glue and ran them through my D'Vine  Swirls Cuttlebug folder layered exactly how I wanted them to be at the end.  I then added foam tape between the layers of each pumpkin lining up the swirl marks as I placed them.

Ice Skate Cut-away Card

Another Christmas Card to share with you all but today it is a Beautiful Cut-Away Card.  I am in love with this Hot Off the Press die set to cut away a flap for the card.  It is actually called Card Flaps and Borders Cutting Dies.  I have a Stamp set that coordinates with it but it is not Christmas and I opted to not use it on this one.  This is only 1 of 4 in the set...Wowzers I can't wait to make some more cards with the other cuts!!!
So the inspiration for this entire card was the Pretty Ice Skate stamp which is also from HOTP.  After finding the Christmas papers I wanted to use I dug out some old lavender and blue paper scraps for the die cuts.   I stamped the skate in versamark Ink and used Dutch blue embossing powder and set it with my heating tool.  I love how that turned out!   I then took it to my scanNCut 2 not knowing if it would recognize the embossed image but much to my surprise it did so I set it to give a .08 outline and cut.  I then diecut some snowflakes in the coordinating papers although I couldn't find the right color blue for the top snowflakes, so I decided to completely cover those in the matching in Embossing powder and heat set them.  I added a foam dot in between the layers of snowflakes and then added an enamel glitter dot to each.  I diecut a fancy oval and then ran it through my Swiss dots embossing folder.   I added the diecut ice skate on foam tape in the center of the oval and then added a light lavender gem in the center of the snowflake on the boot. I added some similar lavender gems along the fancy cut off edge plus one large white glitter dot in the center.
For the inside I covered with the blue paper, I then added the cute pattern paper which I had first cut with a Victorian edge with my paper cutter.  I used 2 oval dies from that same die set.  The sentiment is my favorite for the inside of my Christmas cards.  the snowflake stamp is from the same Ice Skate Small stamp set on the front.

List of materials:
Designer Papers - OTC
Solid Cardstock - Recollection's

Cardinal Christmas dryer sheet card

 I have only ever made a dryer sheet card once and I enjoyed the outcome so I thought I would make a few this year  for my Christmas card list.  

I started with an A2 size piece of white card stock knowing that I would be cutting it down later for my front card layer.   I used a few different stamp sets to create this one a little bit of coloring with my Spectrum Noir markers, some inking around the edges with walnut stain distress ink, the dryer sheet and lots of sparkle.  It is so hard to capture all of that beautiful glitter in a picture .... I sure wish you could see it in person, it's really something!

Harley Birthday Card

 Hello my crafty friends, back with another birthday card to share with you.   I have four guy birthdays coming up in December and I always struggle with masculine cards so I thought I better get started early this year.    This card is following Mary's card sketch #3 over at cardz TV. This one will be for my brother Sonny he just bought himself a Harley Davidson motorcycle last year and yet this is far from a Harley I thought it looked pretty cool after I added some cool details and tweaks.
The motorcycle is from Cricut - Happy Father's Day cartridge.   I cut the two layers it offered on the cartridge as normal... the top one being in recollections black and the layering layers that go behind I did in a different textured black card stock.   I then I added clear embossing powder to the tank and fenders layers,  it really came out with a cool Glossy textured effect because it was on textured card stock to begin with.   Then I cut a complete blackout layer to go behind everything in a reflective silver card stock  to add all the awesome chrome look to the bike.   I also cut the seat section out of the textured card stock but I didn't add the embossing powder to it.   And one last final touch I did to the bike is on the very front part of the headlight I added glossy accents to make it look like a glass lens.

 Both of the label and banner die-cuts are from spellbinders but on each one I hand drew the inner section of the die and hand cut to give it a layered look.   After I adhered the polka-dot one I put it back in the die and ran it through with the embossing Mat to really let it pop  and mold to the shape.
For the word banner I added an old happy birthday rub-on from my stash.  I have a trick for making rub-on's attach easier in case anyone doesn't know this:   I cut the rub-on to fit the gray piece of paper,  I layered my die-cutting machine up as if I would be embossing only instead of putting the grey paper with the rub-on on top of it inside the embossing folder I laid it underneath the embossing folder and ran it through.   In most cases this gives enough pressure that the rub-on sticks to whatever you're attaching it to .... sometimes however you still do have to do a little rubbing as I did with this one just on the very ends though.  My Rub-on's are very old,  not sure if that makes a difference.   So once I had the rub-on attached to the gray piece of paper I inked the edges with walnut stain distress ink and then I adhered it to the embossed banner.   Both the motorcycle and the word banner are popped up on foam tape.   Plus I added 3 Grey enamel dots to the left bottom corner.

Card Base Layer in a grey rivot paper -  cut with spellbinders card creator die
