Put on Your Halloween Shoes!

Happy Monday everyone!

Today's card features a cute digi from the Stamping Boutique's Halloween line. The minute I saw these shoes I knew I had to make a card with them. They just make me smile. 

The card base is Basic Black and the layer is Lovely Lilac (retired) by Stampin' Up! The designer paper is from my stash. I colored the image with Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils and machine stitched all layers. I added crystal effects and white gel pen for accents.

I will have another card for you tomorrow.

Thank you for stopping by.

SNR Digi Day Halloween

Hi everyone and Happy Saturday!

Here is my card for the SNR digi day Halloween theme. I am using a wonderful digi stamp from The Stamping Boutique's new Halloween Collection. This is Princess Jennifer Latte the Witch. I just had to work with this incredible image, she just has so much personality!

I used Copics for all my coloring,  added stickles in Star Dust to the stars, and added shimmer paint to Princess Jennifer's dress and hat for a little extra bling! The designer paper and ribbon are retired Stampin Up!, the background punch is Martha Stewart and the corner designs are Cuttlebug. I popped the main image up and then added the punched bats to give extra dimension.

Remember to join us tonight at 7:00 PM CT at the Stamping Boutique's SNR digi day. Go to the Stamping Boutique to get your "Frankie" digi stamp in the Halloween section,for an unbelievable $1 and bring your completed project to digi day to receive a FREE exclusive image for digi day attendees only.

My card for today's blog hop features Patriotic AJ. I think that this is such an incredible digi and it was so much fun creating this card with him. I printed the image twice coloring the flag on the first image and AJ on the second image. I used Prismacolor pencils and Copic markers for all of my coloring. I then cut AJ out and mounted him to the flag image using pop dots for depth. The cardstock layers are also attached with pop dots. To finish the card I punched the corners with a photo corners punch and added the little star ribbon. The brim of AJ's hat and his shoes have been coated with Crystal Effects for dimension and sheen.

Scarecrow Paper Pin

Happy Labor Day  everyone! Thanks for stopping by.

Today's project is a layered paper pin. This technique was developed by Kelli Purkey also known as the Pin Lady. The technique is not hard but requires a lot of patience as it is done in layers of cardstock. For this pin I used an adorable Scarecrow digital image from the Stamping Boutique. I copied the scarecrow image three times, one for the base and two extras so that I could color and cut out my layered pieces. The base is three layers of cardstock and each additional piece is two layers of cardstock.

I took this photo from the side to show how the pin is layered and shaped.

Before the layers dried, I added some coiled wire to the top of the pumpkin for added texture. The pin is then sprayed with six coats of triple thick enamel to give it sheen and to harden the cardstock. If there are any additional embellishments that you would like to add such as rhinestones, it would be done at this point. To finish the pin I added  twisted raffia and finally a magnet and washer to make the pin. This could also be used as a magnet and would make a great teacher's gift.

The raffia twist was made by my 10 year old daughter. We took the girls to Williamsburg, VA for vacation and at Jamestown they learned how to take reed and twist it into rope for fishing nets just like the early settlers did. Ellie just had to try it when we returned home and I have been using these twists as fall decor on some of my projects.
