Best Wishes Autumn Card

Hello crafty friends! Today I have a best wishes Autumn card to share with you. I don't know about you, but I love the colors of Autumn.


Visible Image has provided me with some of the products to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own and I only design for companies that I completely love their products.

For the background of my card, I sprayed some Fireworks! Shimmer Spray in Tangelo and Rich Cocoa onto my craft mat. Then placed a piece of white cardstock over it but holding the edges up so it was slightly rounded so the color only got on the center of the cardstock.

Then I stamped the tree and leaves from the Visible Image Create Stamp set and the Best Wishes Sentiment from the Visible Image Go To Words Stamp Set in VersaFine Clair Acorn. Then I sprinkled some Mboss Gold Glitter Embossing Powder over the stamped images and heat set them with my heat tool.


I then stamped the clouds in VersaMark Champagne using the Visible Image Look Foward With Hope Stamp Set and then embossed it with the Mboss Gold Glitter Embossing Powder.
I then cut the front panel down and tied a ribbon around it and backed it with some brown cardstock and Rinea Gold Starstruck Foiled Paper and added some sequins. I adhered all the layers together with my Xyron Mega Runner.
Then I was done, an easy yet elegant card that was quick to make!

The Witch Is In Sign

Today I am sharing a fun sign I created to hang on our door for Halloween. It would also make a great open sign for an office or small business.


StyleTechCraft has provided me with some of the products to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own and I only design for companies that I completely love their products.

I first started with the wood sign and using some DecoArt Americana Paint on a dry paper towel, I rubbed the paint to the front of the pallet to give a washed look and let it dry.


I then made an image to cut out using my Silhouette Studio Designer Edition Software and my Silhouette Cameo to cut it out the image on some StyleTechCraft Matte Black Vinyl. After I cut it out, I placed a piece of StyleTechCraft Clear Transfer Tape with Grid Liner over the cut area and made sure it was stuck down well by using my StyleTechCraft Blue Felt Squeegee. Then I peeled the back of the vinyl off leaving the cut image onto the transfer tape.


After the backing was all peeled off I weeded out the pieces left behind with the pick tool in the StyleTechCraft Tool Kit.


Then placed the transfer tape with the image onto the painted pallet and used and using the squeegee making sure it was adhered down really well before pulling the transfer tape off leaving the image on the pallet.


Then all that is left is to hang your new sign onto a wall or door and enjoy!

Beautifully Wicked Halloween Card

Halloween is getting closer! So time to get those Halloween cards done like this beautifully wicked Halloween card that I made.


Visible Image has provided me with some of the product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own and I only design for companies that I completely love their products.

Even though this Oz Wicked Witch Stamp Set by Visible Image goes with their Wizard Of Oz stamp collection, I thought it was perfect for a Halloween card too. I stamped everything out with Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black and colored them in with Copic markers.



Then I used the coordinating Oz Wicked Witch dies and my Gemini Jr. to cut out the images. Layered the images up on top of some patterned papers that I matted with black cardstock and also added a layer of some cheesecloth between them. Popped some of the images and layers up with some foam squares.

Beginners Guide To Creating Backgrounds On Cards

Hello! Today I am sharing a beginners guide on how to make backgrounds on cards. This is also a fun way to make cards that are flat and not bulky, so they are easy to send in the mail.


Imagine and The Crafter's Workshop has provided me with some of the product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own and I only design for companies that I completely love their products.

Below is a video tutorial showing how I created the background for each of my cards.
Make sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel and click the bell so you will get updates when I post a new video.


I used Imagine's Fireworks! Spray in Bahama Blue and Pear Tart on the background on the card below. On the ribbon and flower, I used Fireworks! Spray in Danube Blue. The sentiment is from the Waffle Flower Iris You Stamp Set and I used StazOn Pigment Ink in Piano Black to stamp it.


On the Halloween card which I think is my favorite, I used Fireworks! Spray in Tangelo and Tuxedo Black.  I used the Poppystamps Halloween Fun Stamp Set to stamp the sentiment and the bats with StazOn Pigment Ink in Piano Black.


On my next card, I used The Crafter's Workshop TCW830 Dash Triangle Stencil with some Fireworks! Spray in Lilac Posies and Lulu Lavender. The sentiment is from the Sizzix Spring Phrases Stamp Set and used the StazOn Pigment Ink in Piano Black.


For my next fun card, I used The Crafter's Workshop TCW848 Pineapple Stencil along with some Fireworks! Spray in Bamboo Leaves and Dandelion. The sentiment is from the Sizzix Spring Phrases Stamp Set and used the StazOn Pigment Ink in Piano Black.


Which one is your favorite?
