SUPER CUTE HALLOWEEN CARD

By Jennifer del Muro
on October 18, 2021

Hi! It's Candice with you this Monday and I have a fun CAS Halloween card for you today! There is something so fun in using Halloween colors for your designs, don't you agree?!

I used these Reverse Confetti products to create my slimline design:

I began my slimline with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base.

For the background, I created the stitched slimline panel by trimming a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock to fit on my card front and die cut with the Along the Dotted Line Cover Panel using the partial die cut method (run partway through, rotate and line up, and run through partway again!).

I then die cut a bunch of strips from Bristol Smooth cardstock and black cardstock, using the longest tag from the Three Tags die set, trimmed them to fit going down my card. I heat embossed every other one with Halloween sentiments and inked some with seedless preserves and mowed lawn.

Next, I stamped the ghost, cat, and bat, colored them with copic markers, and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I then stamped the spider and web near the top. To put the card together, I used foam tape on the strips and then on the images to give great dimension to the design and finished with some green jewels!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

BOO!

Hello friends! Olga Moss is here. I'm continuing my preparation for Halloween and today I want share these projects with you.


I want to create little gifties for my son's friend. So I made these treat holders using Pencil & Treat Holder Confetti CutsI have found a quick and easy way to decorate these holders and I will be glad to share my idea with you.


Sometimes we all need to look at what we have from a different angle and then we can discover something new. I do the same with my stamp sets too. So I discovered there is a ghost silhouette die among the Coordinating dies for the Boo Day stamp set and it can be used without stamps. This decision gave a new look to my work. 
Using the ghost silhouette die I've cut it out in 4 different colors and I used an element on repeat to create a composition. It's so fun! 


I thought for a long time what to use as the eyes and mouth of a ghost and found a solution when I started designing the second holder. So I die cut the big sentiment "Trick or treat" using Trick or Treat Confetti Cuts and I noticed that the remnants of the letters O and A have a suitable shape for the eyes and mouth of the ghost. Bingo! My composition has come together!
For the background I used some patterned paper from This & That 6x6 Paper Pad and Circle Rays Duo Confetti Cuts. To decorate the holders I also used mini sentiments from the Halloween Sentiments stamp set.


I liked these cute ghosts so much that I couldn't resist making a card with them. 


For the background I used the Piggy Bank Cardstock and I heat embossed in gold spiderweb images on it. 


I wanted to add a spectacular design element to my card so I used big Candles Confetti CutsI added the candles panel with the ghosts onto the background. 


And I added the sentiment BOO that I made using Letter Cuts Confetti Cuts and Midnight Cardstock. The card is ready. 


Hope you enjoyed my today’s projects

HELLO

Hello Fetti Fans! Great to have you visit here on the blog again! Ali with you today to bring you a pretty pastel coloured card using the wonderful Big Flower Cover Panel and the Hello Daisy Cover Panel along with one of my new favourite distress Oxide ink colours - Salvaged Patina. I also grabbed Shaded Lilac which I think is a perfect compliment for the light aqua colour.
To start, I die cut a white piece of cardstock using the Big Flower cover Panel. To make the background piece, I cut another white piece of cardstock to size and inked it with patches of Salvaged Patina and Shaded Lilac with my ink brushes. I then splattered the piece with white Gesso and put aside to dry. 

I die cut the Hello pieces from white cardstock and light aqua coloured cardstock and adhered them together. When the coloured piece was dry, I cut to size to fit behind the Flower panel - I like to trim my panel down so that it fits my Aus card size - this doesn't bother me at all and I like the look it creates actually! I adhered this together and then die cut some flowers using the left over coloured piece.

I adhered a purple piece of cardstock to the front of the flower panel piece and then adhered the hello and flowers as shown. I then adhered this to a white cardbase. I love the texture in this card and the little layered flowers that reflect the floral Cover Plate. 
Hope you enjoyed this card and see you again soon!
Ali xx
 

VISITING THE PUMPKIN PATCH

 I am all smiles today because it's the most beautiful time of the year!!  I love to make Fall cards.  I love the colors of Fall, the cooler weather, leaves starting to change and pumpkins everywhere!!  I made this slimline card using the Pick of the Patch stamp set.   


Aren't these little critters just the cutest!  I stamped them out and colored with my Copics.   I also stamped out some trees from Holiday Gnomes stamp set onto Lime Green cardstock. I die cut all my images out with the matching Pick of the Patch Confetti Cuts and Holiday Gnomes Confetti Cuts. 


For my card panel, I trimmed down some kraft cardstock to 3 1/2 inches by 8 3/4 inches.  I ink blended with Distress Inks in Antique Linen and Vintage Photo.   I stamped off a leaf from Fall Flowers and stamped the background.  You just see a hint of falling leaves.  I added a strip of Dark Roast cardstock to the bottom.  I stamped a sentiment from Fall Flowers in Dark Roast ink onto the panel 


I adhered the panel to a kraft card base with liquid adhesive.  I added some twine that I wrapped around the card several times and tied off a bow.  I added a felt flower and a small rhinestone for some sparkle!  


I hope you have a wonderful day!  Thanks for stopping by! 



SEASON’S GREETINGS

Hello crafty friends! I'm Lien and this week I made a very fun non-traditional Christmas cards. I make so many holiday cards every year I get a little bit burnt out with the traditional stuff even though I love that look, so I'm always happy to come up with out of the box Christmas designs and this bear was perfect for it!

For this card I started out by using the Tree Confetti Cuts to die cut a stencil. I just do this out of glossy cardstock, but you can do it out of acetate as well! I do make sure to trim my cardstock down to A2 size, center my die on top of that, so it's easy to align this stencil on my card later. I tape everything temporarily in place with painters tape and then I can blend a galaxy through this tree stencil using Iced Aqua, Lime Green, Baby Blue, Navy and Royal Purple ink by Reverse Confetti, I also added some splatter with silver metallic paint.

I then stamped an image from the The Bear Up There stamp set in Versafine Onyx Black ink onto Canson Montval 200 gsm watercolor cardstock. I also embossed this with WOW Clear Gloss Super Fine Embossing Powder. Then I can easily paint this image in with my watercolors and fussy cut it out. You could use the matching dies, but honestly I am terrible at lining those up. You can find the dies right here.

I cut down my panel to be slightly smaller than A2 size, added a sentiment from the Sparkle and Shine Sentiments stamp set in silver embossing powder and then it's time to assemble my card. I glued 4 extra pieces of thick white cardstock under my tree panel to prop it up on my cardbase. I then adhere the bear on some foam tape and as a finishing touch I added a couple of holographic gems.

If you'd like to see how I made this card plus a matching envelope, please watch the video below! Thank you so much for visiting!

WARM HUGS

Hello! Candice with you today and I just love the new Autumn stamp sets from the new release at Reverse Confetti and used them to create this Fall slimline card!

I used these Reverse Confetti products for my slimline design:

I began my slimline with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base.

For the background, I trimmed a piece of Bristol Smooth to fit my card front, die cut the Circle Elements on each side, inked it with tea dye and antique linen, and splattered with white paint, brown and gold shimmer spray using a damp paintbrush.

While that dried, I inked a scrap piece of Bristol Smooth with crackling campfire and aged mahogany and cut it with the warm hugs die. I layered it on multiples of thick white cardstocks cut from more of the warm hugs die and glued to the center near the top.

Next, I stamped the floral bloom, leaves, cider mug, apple, and cinnamon sticks onto watercolor paper using Versafine Ink, colored them with Zig watercolor markers, and used the coordinating dies listed above to cut them out. I adhered them to the card using glue, foam tape, and double foam tape to really give depth to my images and finished with some dark pink jewels!

Zig colors I used: pale orange, brown, deep red, mid green, and deep green

Thank you for visiting with me today and I hope you are enjoying some beautiful Fall weather!

Hello Fetti Fans! Ali with you today for a clean and simple Christmas card using the Tree Confetti Cuts and Patterned Panels Stamp Set. I kept the colour scheme traditional with white and gold embossing and it makes for a lovely combination with the graphic tree design. I do like a simple but striking Christmas card that you can easily mass produce as there is often a few to make! 

To begin the card, I embossed a white background piece of cardstock with the Along The Dotted lines cover Panel. I then die cut this panel with the Tree Confetti Cut and removed the tree panels. 

I then stamped the Patterned Panels onto white cardstock with versa mark ink and embossed with gold embossing powder. I die cut a different pattern for each layer of the tree with the Tree confetti cut. I adhered the white panel to some gold cardstock and then to a white cardbase. I adhered each tree panel into the corresponding 'gap' in the white background piece.

I stamped the sentiment from Seasonal Say It All on black cardstock strip and gold embossed it. I attached that to the front of the card to complete it. Hope you enjoyed this ard and that it gives you some ideas for getting your Chrissy cards started!

Ali xx


TRICK OR TREAT

 Hello! Happy Halloween!!  I pulled out all my favorite Halloween stamp sets from Reverse Confetti to create this slimline card!  



I used Halloween Gnomes, Spooktacular and Boo Day!   I stamped out the images and then colored with my Copic markers.   I die cut them out with the matching Halloween Gnomes Confetti Cuts, Spooktacular Confetti Cuts and Boo Day Confetti Cuts. 




If you look for spooky Halloween night scenes you always see black silhouettes.  So I die cut some additional Halloween Gnomes Confetti Cuts from Midnight cardstock to create my night time scene! 
 I adhered the black die cuts behind the stamped images with liquid adhesive and popped up some of the  stamped and colored images with foam tape. 



For my background, I used Distress Inks in Prized Ribbon, Salvaged Patina and Antique Linen and ink blended onto Bristol Smooth cardstock.  I covered part of the panel with the Large Detailed Circle Frame Confetti Cuts to create my moon.   I splattered some white paint onto the panel. 




I finished off the panel by white heat embossing a sentiment from Spooktacular stamp set.   I hope you have a wonderful day!

MAGICAL BIRTHDAY

Hello crafty friends! I'm Lien and this week I made a clean and simple birthday card. As always, I'll explain everything I did right here in the blog post, but I also have a video linked below where you can watch the whole process as well!

For this card I started out by making my focal image. I used one of the adorable fairies from the Enchanted Garden stamp set by Reverse Confetti and stamped it in Versafine Onyx Black ink onto Canson Montval 200 gsm watercolor cardstock. I also heat embossed this with WOW Clear Gloss Super Fine embossing powder. I love the look of clear embossing line art but it also helps when watercoloring, the raised edges make sure your colors don't bleed together if you're an impatient painter like I am. I colored it in with a fine paintbrush and some watercolors then fussy cut it out.

I then die cut the Circle Element Confetti Cuts once from a white rectangle and once from silver glitter cardstock. I die cut it from the white rectangle, making sure the placement would be perfect to put the fairy in the center of that Circle Element. I added some simple inkblending to that piece with the Iced Aque ink and then I put painters tape on the back of the die cut rectangle, so I'd have a simple backing to inlay the glitter pieces. I prefer using painters tape as a backing because glueing a second piece of cardstock to the back of it usually ends up with glue oozing out of the negative die cut spaces. The painters tape is not very sticky so I do add a dot of liquid adhesive in every opening before inlaying the glitter pieces. I use a jewel picker for this to make my life easier.

I finish it up by stamping the sentiment in the bottom right corner in Versafine Onyx Black and I add the same clear embossing powder on that as well. To add dimension to this background I add 4 layers of thick white cardstock using liquid glue and adhere that onto my cardbase. I prop the fairy up on some foam tape and to add a little extra sparkle I add some Wink Of Stella to her wings.

If you'd like to see how I made this card plus a matching envelope, please watch the video below! Thank you so much for visiting!
