Halloween Card #1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I feel like I am already behind on my Halloween cards. I am trying to keep them simple, cause I need to make a lot of cards. I am so happy with how the first couple turned out. I was so worried the Martha Stewart Paper and K and Company Accents wouldn’t  coordinate, but they look great together. Before I started making my Halloween cards, I got out my limited Halloween supplies, and  gathered purple, green, black, and orange embellishments. Anyways,  I hope you enjoying looking at my handmade Halloween card ideas.

Handmade Tree Tire Swing Card

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I made two different tree cards today. For the first tree card, I used the give a hoot cartridge. The tree proportion were kind of an accident. I forget to turn the fit length off and ended up with a huge tree and an even bigger branch.  I liked the way it turned out, so I ended up using the tree anyways. To get a similar look, I would suggest cutting the tree at 5 3/4 inches and the branch at 6 1/4 inches. After assembling my tree, I adhered it to my A2 Kraft card base with some of the tree hanging off. Then I trimmed off the excess paper. I cut the circle outline for the tire swing from Plantin schoolbook at 1 1/2 inches. I cut 4 circles and glued them together to get a thicker tire. Then a used my gray gel pen to make tire treads. Before attaching the tire, I stamped and embossed my sentiment with white embossing powder.  To finish the tire swing, I used some hemp as a rope and used a silver brad to attach the tire swing. To complete the card, I corner round the edges and did a little doodling on inside.


Handmade Embossed Tree Card

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For my second tree card, I cut a circle from Birthday Bash using real dial size at 3 inches in kraft cardstock and a scallop circle in 3 3/4 inches. I have cut the scallop and circle from the Birthday Bash cartridge so many times, I don’t even need to look at the book to remember the buttons. I stamped a Martha Stewart Tree Stamp with green pigment ink on my circle. Then I sprinkled clear embossing powder, and used my heat tool. I think the tree turned out beautiful. I adhered the tree circle to my scallop circle and tied some brown ribbon around my card base. Then I used ATG to adhere the circle. I then used my antique gold embossing powder to emboss my sentiment. For the finishing touch, I tied a bow with the ribbon. I hope everyone enjoys these two tree cards.

To make this cute card, I started with a Kraft A2 card base. I used clear embossing powder to emboss butterflies on a 1 1/2 x 5 inch piece of purple patterned paper. The clear butterflies add a subtle interest to the card. Afterwards I adhered the strip with my ATG, and tied some hemp around the card and secured it with a wooden button. I cut two a layer butterfly from the Give a Hoot cartridge at 3 inches. I adhered the butterfly with one pop dot. Scrapes of patterned paper were used to punch out daisies. I adhered the daises with a dot of glue in middle of each flower. I made a wavy pattern with the flowers.  Then I added two brads to the centers of two daises. Then I added my sentiment with white embossing powder and corner rounded the edges. Enjoy this pretty card.

Papyrus Card Inspiration from Target

My inspiration for this card, was a papyrus card I saw at Target. I took a picture on my phone, and have been meaning to make something similar since. To make with pretty flower card, start with a 2 1/2 inch circle. Then use your punches to punch out several flowers in a variety of coordinating pattern card stock. I used scraps from my the Abrianna Collection to punch my flowers. Then add adhesive to your circle. First I  layered on the petunia in circle slightly overlapping. Then I used my zig two way to glue to the daisy down. Gluing down the daisy was a little difficult. I found holding then down for 10 seconds after gluing them helped them stay secure. After adhering all the flowers, I used some pop dots adhere the circle to a Kraft A2 card base. For the sentiment, I stamped “I love you for who you are” on some kraft cardstock using my embossing stamp pad. Then used some some Antique Gold embossing powder and my heat tool to emboss my sentiment. After I cut out the sentiment with my scissors following the curves of the stamp. Then I used some ATG to adhered then sentiment. For finishing touches, I added a tiny cloths pen and corner round the bottom corners. Hope you like this card.

One of my lovely coworkers asked me to craft her some thank you cards. This is one of cards I made for her. On of the cards, she requested was for her professor, who loves horses. I started out with giant horse shoe, and hated it. Once I decided I wanted a variety of circles, I loaded up my cricut mat with various scraps of paper. I cut up a couple different sizes of circles, scalloped circles, and horse shoes. I played with laying out the circles on the card until I had a pleasing design. I made a half circle with my circles. Then I made  stitching lines with my white gel pen and sharpie pen in black. A button, hemp, a Tim Holtz Gear, and various brads were added to the circles for extra embellishment. For the greeting, I used black embossing power. I hope you enjoy this simple, and fun card.
