DIY Pumpkin Decoration With Rinea Foiled Paper

I had so much fun making this pumpkin decoration using Rinea Foiled Paper. I saw the cute pumpkin cut file from svgcuts called Haunted Forest SVG Kit and had to get it. They have tons of awesome cut files!


I took out my Silhouette Cameo and dusted it off and loaded up my Silhouette Designer Studio Edition software and began cutting out the pieces using Rinea's Foiled Paper.
I set the cut settings to vellum and lowered the cutting pressure some.
For the pumpkin base, I used Rinea Ebony/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper and for the panels, I used Rinea Marigold/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper.


For the hat, I used Rinea Violet/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper and for the panels, I used Rinea Ebony Star Struck Foiled Paper. To adhere everything together I used Therm O Web Mixed Media Adhesive, which is fast drying and held everything together perfectly.
For the flower on the hat, I used some black flowers I found in my stash and a spider I found in my Halloween decorations.

Teeny Tiny Charms using Shrink Film

Hello, everyone! Have you ever used Shrink Film before? It's lots of fun! I made these teeny tiny charms using the new Brutus Monroe Premium Shrink Film and Brutus Monroe Tina's Classroom Stamp Set. This would be a great gift for a teacher but my daughter wants to keep it for herself.




To make the charms, I first stamped some of the images from Tina's Classroom Stamp Set using Brutus Monroe Detail Ink in Raven onto a sheet of the Premium Shrink Film. Then colored in each image with Stylefile Markers. Once they were all colored, I then cut each one out leaving a little extra outside of the stamp line. After cutting them out, I punched a 1/8" hole in the top corner of each one with my Crop-A-Dile Big Bite.


Then using something pointy like tweezers or a toothpick in the hole to hold the charm while using the Embossing Heat Tool to shrink the charms. When they first start shrinking they will shrivel all up but keep the heat tool on them and they will flatten back out again. You can also use something flat like a stamp block on them while they are still hot to flatten them out even more.
All you have to do now is add a small jump ring to them and attach them to a bracelet. I attached mine to a Rainbow Loom bracelet my daughter made.

Joy Clair World Cardmaking Day Blog Hop

Hello and happy Saturday! Today I am sharing a card I created for the Joy Clair Blog Hop. I was so excited to be asked to be a guest designer for this hop. Make sure to scroll to the bottom of my post to get all the blog hop details.


To get all the soft colors I used the new Delicata Ink colors in Rose Gold, Pink Shimmer, Sapphire Blue, and Champagne. I was going for a soft feminine look but after I was done realized these colors together would also make a gorgeous wedding card.


I started with Joy Clairs Hugs and Smiles stamp set and used the swirly like flowers from it. I stamped it with VersaMark and then embossed it with white embossing powder. I then smooched some of the Delicata Rose Gold and Pink Shimmer onto my craft mat and picked the color up with a water brush and painted the colors onto the flowers. The white embossed areas act as a resist so the ink won't stick to it. I did the same process for the small flowers but used Delicata Sapphire Blue.


Below the flowers, I watercolored on the Delicata Champagne ink blending it lighter as I moved down the card.


In the bottom corner, I used a couple of the sentiments from the set and one of the small envelope stamps. Added some champagne pearls, backed the card front with some black, attached it to the front of my card and I was done.
