A little Spooky…

Written by lisascreativeniche. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hello!  It’s Lisa here today and I have a fun Halloween card to share with all of you today using the new Avery Elle Bad Kitty Set.  Since this set is smaller, it’s also lighter on the wallet which is always a good thing!  But don’t underestimate it’s size, this set can still pack a big and spooky punch…

To create this card I started by stamping my pumpkin and cat onto separate cardstock.  I then used my Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers in TN5, TN8, OR1, OR2, CT2, IG5, IG6, IG8, DR1, DR2, LG2 to color them in before cutting them out.  When I am handing cutting an image I like to go over the edges with my Memento Marker in Tuxedo Black.  This may seem a little redundant, but trust me it can make a big difference.  After these guys were are set for my card I started working on my cardbase.  First, I stamped the bats to look like they would be flying out of the pumpkin.  Next, came my spider web, spider and sentiment in the opposite corner.  To achieve a night sky I used a mix of Distress Oxide and Distress Inks.  My spider web seemed to fade more into the background than I wanted it to so I traced over the image and drew a line to my spider with a white gel pen.  I like the shadow effect it gave too.

A few mist splatters later and my cardbase was ready for my witch kitty and pumpkin.  I layered the pumpkin with foam adhesive for dimension to my scene. Everything looked cute, but I still felt like it was lacking one more thing… bling!  So I added one red rhinestone to the cats collar and called it a day.

Happy Dance!

Hello, hello!  It is Lisa here today and I have a happy little card that’s sure to make anyone’s Birthday even brighter!  This card features the new Winnie and Walter Happy Dance Stamp Set and the Concord & 9th Sunshine Turnabout Stamp Set

This was my first time using one of the Concord & 9th’s Turnabout sets, and I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was!  I do suggest that you visit their video on how to mark the center of your set and how to create your own template too.  Once I had done these myself I used bright Memento Colored inks all the way around.  I then set this panel to the side.

Next, I worked on my second panel by stamping this happy little guy in the middle and the sentiment from the Happy Dance Stamp Set with Memento Ink.  To color my bear in I used a mix of Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers in Warm Beige and Saddle Brown.  I decided to go over the edges of this panel with Distress Oxide Ink in Wilted Violet and Broken China.

At this point I still felt like there was something missing so I decided to stamp, color and cut some of the streamers to add to the panel.  After these were adhered to the front of the base I finished the card off with a few colorful sequins!

Furr-Ever Friends

Written by Holly Endress. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects), Uncategorized

Happy Friday everyone, it’s Holly here today… Have you checked out the July Release from Newton’s Nook Designs? They are celebrating their Four year Anniversary this month with 6 new Stamp sets, a border die set and 4 Stencils. Today I’m using one of the new stencils from the July Release and the Furr-Ever Friends Set from the June Release.

I started with a piece of Bristol cardstock, using the Paw Print stencil form Newton’s Nook. I smooshed some Salty Ocean Distress Oxide onto the back of the stencil. Then I spritzed it with some water and flipped it over and laid it down on the Bristol. I let it sit for a few minutes then I used a paper towel to dab up any excess that may of come through the openings. I heat set the panel with a heat tool. The I die cut the panel using the MFT Blue Prints 15 Die-namics. You can see how I created the background and more ways to use these stencils in the video below.

I stamped the halo image from the Forever Friends set onto the panel with some Gold embossing powder , then I adhered the panel to a White top folding card base. I die cut the stitched cloud from the MFT End of the Rainbow die-namic and stamped the sentiment in the center. I adhered the Cloud with some foam tape leaving enough area to add the cat silhouette. I stamped the cat silhouette in Black ink and I heat embossed the Wings onto some Vellum in Gold. I cut the images out and adhered them to the cloud. For an extra touch of sparkle I added some Mixed Sequins from Neat & Tangled.

Glimmer Paste on Dark Cardstock

Written by lisascreativeniche. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects), Uncategorized

Hi!  It is Lisa here today and I am sharing what I think is a scrumptious and pretty card!  I was so excited with the way the glimmer paste by Nuvo shows on dark cardstock, that I seriously want to cover everything with this stuff! Take a peek at how I mixed this paste with lots of Altenew goodies…

To create this card I started by going over the Altenew Stencil: Sketched Lines on black cardstock with the Glimmer Paste.  I then set this off to the side and stamped and embossed my sentiment from the Altenew Beautiful Quotes Stamp Set in gold.  Next, I stamped flowers onto watercolor cardstock from the Wild Hibiscus Stamp Set.  To watercolor the flowers I used a mix of Distress Markers and Distress Oxide Ink.  I decided to fussy cut them out and added some Nuvo Drops to the centers.

Finally, I layered all of these up onto my cardbase.  Isn’t it just so pretty?!  Sometimes you just can’t help but feel excited when an idea turns out just as you were hoping.  I hope to see you share some of your new creations with us in our latest challenge featuring Christmas in July!

Happy Crafting!
