I Want My Mummy!

You know I love Hootie... and I extra love Hootie's Halloween add on.  I started this one with a gel print I made with the Diamond Plate Stencil and Deco Foiled it in Opal Deco Foil.

This mummy outfit is so fun with all of it's embossed lines for his rags.  I cut this one from a gel print I added Hootie's eyes to the base first (which is just the base Hootie from the original set.) and then used thin foam tape and popped up the Mummy outfit over the top.

I attached the beak and feet after.  I cut the kitty and pumpkin bucket from the set and trimmed the top of the kitty off so I could insert it in the bucket and then added back his body to fill in the Jack O' Lantern face.

I embossed the Mummy sentiment from the Happy Owloween set and die cut the Boo from Cool Cat.

That's me for today!  Hope you enjoyed it and be sure to come back Friday for the National Coffee Day Blog Hop with the Coffee Loving Cardmakers!

Be there or be square!

Just Here For The Candy

Happy Monday!  today I've got another sweet Halloween card for you!  This time I cut the Bountiful Basket in black and filled it with some Halloween candy.

I decorated the basket with a spider and web and added some to the background too.

And finally a sentiment from the Happy Halloween stamp set.

Thank you so much for stopping!  Come again soon!

Happy Fright Night!

Welcome back!  I thought maybe you were getting tired of me making Christmas cards with the new candy stencils and dies so I did this!

I even made a Frankenginger... or Gingerfranken... or a Frankerbread Boy?... idk.. I made a Frankenstein Gingerbread Cookie!  I cut one from green and one from black and trimmed the black one down to make his hair and suit.  I'd eat that cookie!

Thanks for stopping!  Hope you enjoyed it!  Come back again soon!

Sweet Treats for Christmas

I've got some Sweet Treats for you today!  This Minnie Pearl Tag Die Set is so pretty and perfect to add to any gift. Along with the Sweet Treats Stamp set and some candies and a ginger it makes the perfect addition to a Christmas gift full of .. well... sweet treats!  

And with these colors this really wouldn't have to be a Christmas gift.  I mean... I'd take some sweet treats any time of the year!

I heat embossed the inside layers with sentiments from the Sweet Treats set and then blended a light pink over the top and then another layer with the Polka Dot Stencil.  Then I just wiped off the embossed parts with a soft cloth and it's ready to go!

Thank you so much for stopping today!  Hope you're able to enjoy the day and don't forget there's a sale going on right now!  Sale ends today and it's while supplies last so get shopping!

Thanks for stopping!  Come again soon!

Have A Sweet Christmas!

Hello!  I've got some more Sweetness for you today!  I hope you're not getting tired of these because I am definitely not getting tired of making them!

The Candy Cane stencil and dies and Candy Swirl stencil are my new favorite Christmas Card accessories!  I created the background using the Ornamental Octagon stencil and added some Glitz Glitter Gel.  I added some of the candies and the gingerbread man popped up under the die cut panel using a die from the Top Stitch Edges die set.  

I built my sentiment with the Sweet letters cut from glitter paper using the Headline Type Alpha dies and a parts from a sentiment from the Merry Kissmas set.

Thank you so much for stopping!  Come again soon!

Candy Cane and Swirls Background

I'm back with some more of the new Candy Cane and Candy Swirls stencils!

This time I created a fun background using both in green and pink.  Then I stenciled a few extras and die cut them out and popped them up onto the background.  I wanted my sentiment popped up over the top of them but it was pretty bumpy so wasn't sure how I was going to do that until I realized I could just attach the Merry Christmas die cuts to some acetate and then attach the entire thing over the top!  So I strategically placed some very thin pieces of clear pop up tape behind the letters in a few places and added it over the top!

Finally I added a bow to the two popped up candy canes and done!

These stencils are SO fun!
