Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps - Cast a Spell

Thursday, September 12, 2019

Hello everyone!

I am here with Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps with the newly released "Witch Wendy" and the sentiment is "Nasty Spell".   If you have not seen all the newly released stamp sets for this month head over to Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps to see them and get lots of inspiration on creating projects from the design team.

Here is how I created my card:

My card is a step card, I created using a Silhouette file.  I had to do a little altering to make it an A2 size card.  I resized the layers that went with the card, I used some Halloween paper I had in my stash to cut them out.  I stamped the image from Crackerbox and Suzy Stamp called "Witch Wendy", and colored it with copics (doesn't she look scary?!)  I cut her out using my scan and cut.  I then stamped the sentiment from Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps "Nasty Spell" and die cut it using a double stitched die.  I adhered both pieces with a tape runner and adhered it to my card.



Closer look at the card.


Thank you so much for stopping by, please come back again soon!

Don't forget Halloween catagory stamps are 20% off  this month.

RETRO RUBBER CHALLENGE BLOG #119 - Fall Colors

Tuesday, September 10, 2019

Hello everyone!

Where did the summer go! I can't believe we are almost in mid-September, in my area we are still having 80-90 degree weather. I am here with Retro Rubber Challenge blog and we have a new challenge, which is an inspirational photo, "Fall Colors". I hope you decide to join in on the fun!

If you have not joined our challenges before, the rules are very simple, just use a stamp older than a year and you must include the age (or approximate age) of the stamp in your blog post. I cannot wait to see you take on it.



Here is my card for your inspiration.  I am using the Concord & 9th Barnwood Background stamp that was released in September 2017 and the leaf and sentiment is from the Concord & 9th Stamp set Lace Leaf which coordinating die set Grateful Leaf dies which was also released in September 2017.

My card is very simple, I stamped the background with the Barnwood Background stamp on cream cardstock, I then stamped the leaf using Kaleidacolor Desert Heat ink, I then die cut three "grateful" from the Grateful Leaf die set and added it to my card, I stamped the sentiment from the Lace Leaf set.  I finished it off by ink blending the edges and adding some splatters to the background.


Thanks again for stopping by, please don't forget to stop over at the Retro Rubber Challenge blog and join the fun and check out the beautiful projects the design team members have created. You have until September the 10th to join in on the fun!
