Halloween Fun

I just thought I would share some fun makes I have made using some fab products from Doodlebug. I recently found a load of Doodlebug including some of the Halloween collections. We have a few of my daughters friends over for Halloween so I made this up as little favours/gifts to give them. I filled each ones with some cute Halloween themed sweeties & chocolates. I had so much fun creating these...

Everything I used is from Doodlebug Halloween Collections I think 2019 and 2020 but I could be wrong. I used the toppers from one of the 12x12 papers for the bag and mounted them onto silver glitter card. I used some papers for the tag topper and attached it onto a clear bag filled with choccy.

I used my Lawn Fawn Scallop Box Die and spotty card to create the box shape.I then decorated it with some Doodlebug Stickers and a die cut border. I added twine to the top and a mini peg.

For the lolly pop holder I used my Time For Tea Tag Shape Dies. I die cut two of them, folded each one on the bottom corners and fixed it together to create the flap. I punched a hole in the bottom so I could place the lolly through it and tied some ribbon onto it. I then decorated the lolly with papers and stickers.

That's all from me today, I hope you have a great Halloween tomorrow and I will be back with inspo next week.

You Are Truly Appreciated

Good morning. With the cooler weather hitting us I've been spending more time in my craft room - it's much warmer in there! This does mean I have had a bit more to create some fun cards. I have had a load of ready coloured images on my desk waiting to be made into cards. I couldn't wait to use these fun stamps from Clearly Besotted, they remind me of the pig family in the movie Sing...

For this card I used Clearly Besotted Cleaning Up Clear Stamp Set. I coloured each of the image with Copics and cut them out. I created a subtle background using my MFT English Brick Wall Stencil and a little grey ink. I masked off the bottom piece and blended that area using the same grey ink. I used a Simon Says Stamp Thanks On A Line Die to create the sentiment at the top. I stamped the other sentiment (from the same stamp set) directly onto the card. I then added all the images onto the card with foam pads and added some clear bubbles to finish.

Tree Picking

Good morning! I have two cards to share today, one now and one this afternoon. I really need to get a wriggle on and make some more Christmas cards before I run out of time - it always suddenly creeps up on us. I am loving all the new releases from my favourite brands so it does make it more fun and easier when you have ace products to use. I went with some of the new releases from Mama Elephant...

For this card I used Mama Elephant Tree Picking Stamp Set. I coloured all the images with Copic Markers and cut them out. I created a blended background using Abandoned Coral, Worn Lipstick & Tattered Rose Distress Oxide Inks. I don't think I've used this combo before but I think it's quite nice and a bit different. I die cut white card using just the snow hill parts of the Mama Elephant Slim Woodland Die. I added a little blue ink onto the top of each hill. I splatted my background with glimmer spray, white paint and I added some dots with my White Posca Pen.I assembled the card together, adding the critters with foam pads and mounted onto glitter card. To finish I added a stamped and mounted sentiment.


Supplies;
Mama Elephant Stamps - Tree Picking
Mama Elephant Dies - Slim Woodland

Good morning! Today I am over on the SugarPea Designs Blog with a card for the latest challenge Mix It Up 83. We have a sketch & colour combo for this challenge so you can choose either one or both! I used a bit of both...

For this card I used the Hey Honey Stamp Set for the bear, bees and sentiment. To start I used the Wave Stencil to create the subtle background using a little light grey ink. I stamped the bear onto kraft card and used the Hey Honey Sugar Cuts to die cut him out. I also added a little ink around the edges of him. I stamped the bees, die cut them and added them onto the card with foam pads. I stamped the senitment onto white card then die cut it using the Stacked Honeycombs SugarCuts. I added a strip of washi tape and some dew drops to finish.

Back To School

Hi crafty peeps! Today I am sharing my final card from my Back To School project using Mama Elephant Stamps. I had such fun making these cards as in the UK we don't really send back to school cards so it was a nice welcome change...

For this card I used Mama Elephant School Rules & Bookworm Stamp Sets. I coloured in each of the images with Copics and cut them out. I created the background by gently blending Tea Dye & Gathered Twigs Distress Oxide Inks all over the panel masking off a piece at the bottom. I then used my MFT English Brick Wall Stencil and brushed the ink all over, pressing slightly heavier. I then added some Pumice Stone Distress Oxide Ink onto the bottom panel. I used the MFT Pop Up Banner Dies to create the bunting at the top. I added all my pieces with foam pads and added a stamped, mounted sentiment.


Supplies;
Mama Elephant Stamps - School Rules, Bookworm
My Favorite Things Dies - Pop Up Banner

Coffee Lover

Today is Thursday and of course that means my usual afternoon post for Time For Tea Designs. For this card I decided to go with a coffee theme - a very popular one at the moment in crafting! I used lots of the new release products and had so much fun creating this one...


I started by creating my simple background first. I blended a little Gathered Twigs & Tea Die Distress Oxide in the centre of the card. I then used the Coffee Stains Stencil and more ink to create the rings. I also added some splats of water and brown ink. I used the Coffee Lover Stamp & Die Set to create the images and sentiments. I coloured all the images with Copic Pens and fixed them all onto the card wit foam pads for some extra dimension.

Little Monster

Hello & welcome to a new week - it's Monday and I can't believe we are already approaching the end of September! Where has this year gone? I thought I would make a start on some Halloween Cards. Although we don't really send Halloween cards in the UK, we always have a little party so I will give them out in the party bags. I created this one using some Clearly Besotted Stamps...

For this card I used Clearly Besotted Frightening Friends Stamp Set & Clearly Besotted Alien Attack Stamp Set. I coloured each of the images with Copic Pens and cut them out. I created the background piece by blending some Distress Oxide Inks. I used Black Soot, Chipped Sapphire, Antique Linen and a little Squeezed Lemonade. I added a strip of the striped paper across the bottom. I then added my critters and spooky house. To finish I stamped the sentiment and added some Enamel Dots.
