Happy Halloween

Happy Monday friends!  Today I'm sharing a mini slimline Halloween card featuring stamps by Paperie Ink.  


These sweet little ghosts, BOO balloon, and the tombstone are from the My Boo stamp; the pumpkins, bat, and sentiment are from the Oh Bats stamp set.  My mini slimline measures 3.5" x 6.5".  I sponged Lawn Fawn Yeti ink onto a piece of black cardstock using the MFT Mini Cloud Edges Stencil.  I stamped all the images onto Neenah cardstock, colored them with copics, and then fussy-cut them.  I diecut a circle from white cardstock and sponged it with distress inks to create the moon.  I used a grass die to diecut a strip of grass from black cardstock and inked the edges with the Lawn Fawn Yeti ink.  I adhered the grass and the colored images with foam tape to add some dimension to my card.

Copics:
Ghosts - BG13, BG11, BG10
Pumpkins - YR18, YR14, YR12, Y15; E44, E43, E42

Happiest of Holidays

This Santa and sentiment are from the Love Santa Digital Stamps.I printed the image on Neenah cardstock, ran it through my ScanNCut, and colored it with copics.  I used a stitched rectangle die to diecut some Christmas pattern paper for the front of my card.  Next, I diecut a stitched oval from bristol card and sponged it with distress oxide ink.  I spattered the oval with thinned white acrylic paint and adhered it to my card.  I adhered a snowy slope on the oval with foam tape, and then adhered my Santa with foam tape also.  I printed one of the sentiments from the stamp set, matted it onto green cardstock, and adhered it to my card. I used a white gel pen to add highlights and added Nuvo Crystal Glaze to Santa's buckle, buttons, and blades on his skates.  I added a few tiny stars for embellishment.

Have A Holly Jolly Christmas

Good morning friends!  I'm popping on here today to share a sweet Christmas card using stamps by Evelin T Designs


These cute little penguins are from the Fun In The Snow stamp set.  If you love penguins and other ice-skating critters then you really need to go check out this stamp set.  I stamped the image on Neenah cardstock, ran it through my ScanNCut, and colored it with copics.  I added some Glamour Dust to the red hat.  I diecut a topper and a bow for the top of my card and sponged some distress ink on the front of my card.  I adhered the penguins with foam tape and then stamped one of the sentiments from the stamp set.  This was a very quick and easy card and would be great for mass-producing your Christmas cards!
