CARD INSTRUCTIONS

I made the glittery background with the Stars stencils on a pale pink cardstock with the Silver Glitz Glitter Gel. In the video I am showing you what is my favorite method for this process. While the background dries, I stamped the Halloween Wreath Stamp and the other coordinating images from the same stamp set with brown alcohol marker friendly inkpad to a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock and colored them with Spectrum Noir Illustrators.

I have used the following colors: CT1, CT2, CT4, GY3, BO1, BO2, BO3, BO4, OR2, OR3, CR1, CR3, CR5, CR7, GB1 GB4, GB6, GB10, RB3, RB1, AP4, AP3, AP2, PP1, FS1, MG1, MG2, BG1, BG2, Blender. After the coloring I die-cut all the images and I colored the wheel with a pale pink alcohol marker.


Next, I continued with the die-cutting. I made more die-cuts from heavy weight cardstock, because I wanted to add thickness to the wreath and the spiders, in this case the interactive part will be more durable. Then I transformed the Happy Halloween Die-cuts made with the Happy Halloween Script Dies. This is a fun way to alter the scripted sentiments, in the video I am describing how.

When it was done, I created the interactive element and added the spider to the circle with fishing line, and created the card front. I covered the glittery background with a piece of vellum, and styled the circle, the sentiment and the other elements. In the end I styled my card and added some Metallic Rose Gold Sequins to it as a decoration. Thank you so much for stopping by, see you next time. Hugs, Mona.

Pretty Pink Posh September release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hi crafty friends! Welcome to day 1 of the Pretty Pink Posh September Release Blog Hop! We are celebrating this magical fall release, okay, I am obsessed because I am a fall girl and this is my favorite season of the year!

THIS PROJECT FEATURES



Do you enjoy this inspiration? I really appreciate if you pin this photo to your Pinterest.

CARD INSTRUCTIONS


For this card I was inspired by one of my fall portrait photos what I shot last year and I wanted to create a cozy warm and cute scene with full of fall, so I reached for warm yellows, muted oranges as well as slightly muted pinks, which works perfectly together with the warm brown shades. 


I stamped the images from the above mentioned stamps: Cozy Fall Critters Stamp SetFalling Leaves Stamp Set as well as Woodland Thanks Stamp Set and colored them with Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers with the following colors: CT1, CT3, CT4, GY3, TN1, TN3, TN4, TN5, TN7, GB6, GB4, GB2, MB1, FS9, FS3, PP1, PP2, PP3, PP5, MG1, MG2, EB7, EB4, EB1, BO1, Blender. Classiques: GB05, BO05. 


As you can see these stamps perfectly work together, my personal favorite is that super adorable pinecone stamp, which is a nice addition to your fall and winter cards as well! Take a closer look of this set hereNext, I stamped the Thankful autumn greeting sentiments from the Woodland Thanks Stamp Set with watermark ink, and heat embossed with gold and white embossing powders. The thankful sentiment has its coordinating die, which is really cool. I love when the scripty sentiments have their coordinating dies.


In the end I created the ink blended background with Distress Oxide inks (see the used colors below the post), then I splattered on it with clear water to make a really quick bokeh effect. Finally I made frame, trees and grass from a cream cardstock with the Nature Essentials Dies and put my card together. Thank you so much for stopping by, take a look at this beautiful release. I wish you happy hopping! Hugs, Mona.

CARD INSTRUCTIONS

I created my background with the best Halloween stencil ever, called Spooky Sky stencils! For the base I have used colorful inkpads from Catherine Pooler (see the colors at the end of the post) then I blended dark blue through the 1st "cloud" part. For the yellow stars layer I have used yellow gouache with my fingers through the stencil and let it dry. After that I continued with the 3rd "bat" part with a black ink.



I wanted to create a spooky night coloring but with adorable images, so I stamped the images from the above mentioned stamps with brown inkpad and colored them with Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers with the following colors: FS1, PL1, PL2, PL3, PL4, PL5, BO4, BO3, BO1, GY4, GY3, CT4, CT3, CT1, GB10, GB6, GB4, GB2, FS5, Blender.


When the coloring was done, I die-cut the beautiful Happy Halloween script sentiment from white and gold glitter with the new Happy Halloween Script die set as well as a deep orange die-cut with the Easter Basket Dies, and put them together with liquid and 3D adhesives.

CARD INSTRUCTIONS

For this inspiration I have used only 3 layer able dies from this beautiful set, and created an asymmetrical elegant card. I die-cut lots of die-cut pieces with each layer able dies. The top pieces I have created with the lightest teal cardstock which I have, called Waterfall. For the second layer pieces I used the Teal Topaz cardstock and for the last layers I went with Lagoon cardstock color, and my background will be slightly darker as well, for a beautiful and elegant look. 


I rolled over the die-cut with my Tool-n-One tool to remove the small paper dots and other leftovers. This tool saves my creating process and I never skip to use it with intricate dies. Next, I put the together all the die-cut pieces with Bearly Art Precision Craft Glue, and I put on the top of them a heavy book and rest them few mins under it.


This month the Clear Stamp of the Month and the Small Die of the Month coordinates well, so I stamped the sentiment with watermark ink to Blue Spruce Color Essentials Cardstock and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. 


I have also heat embossed the beautiful solid floral images from the same set, to the left side of my cardstock. I really like how this beautiful flower looks like; it's perfect as a pattern too.


In the end I put my card together with Bearly Art Precision Craft Glue, and I adhered beautiful Gold Mix Color Essentials Gems to embellish my card. Thank you so much for joining me today, you can check all the Spellbinders monthly clubs here.
