Happy November!

This is one of our new Pumpkin Swinging Z Fold Card is Basis Dark Orange.  The cards come pre- cut OR we have the Card Making Die so you can cut your own.  My theory… use the pre-cut card and put your time, energy and creativity into decorating it!!

We have the coordinating Pumpkin Layering Die Set so you are able to cut a pumpkin to layer on the card.  

Papers Used:

  • Pure Gold Metallic
  • Gold Mirricard (to die cut the squiggles which is on the Cupcake Die Set)
  • Cryogen White Metallic (inside and word layer)
  • Opal Metallic (Die cut Pumpkin)
  • Bronze Metallic (behind word layer)

Stamps Used:  Impression Obsession  


Triple Square Mini Window Die Set 

This spooky little Halloween card was Die cut using our Triple Square Mini Window Die Set.   This set cuts both the card (Black) and the overlay (Grape Jelly).  The overlay was then stamped with the new Impression Obsession Webs Cover-a-Card stamp. 

Papers Used:

  • Black A2 Scored Card
  • Grape jelly layer, 4×5.25
  • Silver MirriSparkle
  • Silver Mirricard
  • Acetate – used in between the card and overlay, just so there was something to attach the Trick or Treat words to 

Die cutting this card and overlay is super easy using our Triple Mini Window Die Set

Alcohol Inks on the MirriCard! 

I’ve been playing with Alcohol Inks lately … and they make a unique background on the MirriCard also!!  

This is Silver Mirricard with Purple Twilight and Slate Alcohol Inks.  The Halloween Scene Die is from Impression Obsession. 

Other Papers Used:   Black MirriCard (behind the scene), Silver Glossy Layer, Purple Rain Cocktail Metallic A2 Scored Card and Silver Stardream for the word circle. 

Alcohol Ink and MirriSparkle!!

Sorry… I’ve been away for a bit.  We had our annual warehouse sale this past weekend.  But I’m back and have a lot of new samples to share from the classes we taught!! 

This is another if our new Christmas Card Kits.  

The Green sparkle background behind the Window Scene Dies (from Impression Obsession). Was created using Alcohol Inks daubed on our Silver MirriSparkle paper.  

A very simple technique that makes beautiful backgrounds. Here’s another card doing the same technique, just using different colors. 

This card also used Silver Mirricard to add so shine!  The Balloon Frame and Balloon layers are a couple of our newer dies from earlier this year.  

Quick card, but doesn’t look that way!!!

This is another new Christmas card kit.  The blue one is from Impression Obsession ….Mitra designed the original in blue . I did another version in tans and browns, which we made into one of our 2017 Christmas Card Kits.  

Both use 3 shades of ink pads from Impression Obsession.  The ease comes in inking the stamp.  Starting with the lightest shade of ink pad… drag it horizontally across the top 1/3rd of the stamp.  The drag the medium tone over the middle of the stamp , overlapping the lightest shade. Then drag the darkest shade over the bottom potion of the stamp.  Use a stipple brush and “pounce” over the inks that overlap (between the shades) to blend any stark lines or edges.  

Stamp on the top layer.  In ourkit… it Usa glossy layer.

1 kit… 2 cards!!

Another new Christmas card kit…, Holly Joy!!  But this one is unique and a first because there are 2 simplistic , yet different cards that are made with the supplies in this kit. 

With 2 cards colors… Wild Cherry and Leaf Green, you’ll use the same stamps but layer differently to make 2 different cards. 

The Scallop Rectangle Frame Die Set is what makes the difference.   Use the large Die to cut a large red frame, used on the green card and the inner portion is used on the Wild Cherry card.  Similarly, use the smaller frame to cut the white and use the frame on the Wild Cherry card and the inner potion on the leaf green card.  

It’s hard to tell from the photo, but the red frame  and layer are die cut from a new stock called Curious Cosmic Pulsar Red… it’s a really stunning heavyweight red cardstock with a diffused Metallic effect.
