Trick or Treat Card

Posted by Susan on Monday, October 20, 2014 in ,
When someone is just getting started in scrapbooking and looking to make Holiday cards I always advise them to get a good paper pack with some great patterns but also some pages that have cut outs for tags, text, etc. It keeps costs for new scrapbookers down and can create some beautiful projects just with paper. Here is an example of one of those "one paper pack" cards:

Danse Macabre Card

Posted by Susan on Sunday, October 19, 2014 in ,
I love this background stamp from Stampendous, and a project over on the Stampendous project page inspired me to dig it out again and try it with something new - Dylusions Ink Spray.

The really funny thing about this project was the border - it's a negative I turned into a positive. I tried printing a spiderweb border using my Silhouette Cameo, but it wouldn't cut all the way through the cardstock - I suspect because I need a new blade (my machine is well used). But because it didn't cut all the way through, it created a really neat etched type of border. Rather than waste the cardstock and the effort, I decided to keep it. I accented it with a mix of some black, orange and green glitter and then some My Mind's Eye chipboard elements and voila.

Supplies:

Bazzil Cardstock
Stamp - Stampendous
Ink - Versafine Black
Dylusions Ink Spray
Chipboard Elements - My Mind's Eye "Lost and Found - Halloween"
Glitter - Martha Stewart
Silhouette Cameo

Scary Wall Hanging

Posted by Susan on Saturday, October 18, 2014 in ,
This is a great project that you could do for any Holiday, and a fun one to share with the kids. Plus, it's a great use of scrap paper, or if you're a paper hoarder like me it helps get rid of some of those pieces you've been hanging onto. So make room for some new paper and give this project a try.

Spooky Halloween Card

Posted by Susan on Tuesday, October 14, 2014 in ,
I love Halloween! It's just such a fun Holiday and the kids are so cute in their costumes. I love the fall colours and the Halloween decorations - the cute kind, not so much the gory kind. And because I love Halloween so much, I like to send out Halloween cards to a few of my friends and family that I know also enjoy the spooky holiday.

So to start Halloween week, I am sharing one of my Halloween cards.

Thanksgiving Card

Posted by Susan on Monday, October 06, 2014 in ,
I don't typically make Thanksgiving cards, but I had a few card making friends over, and I had seen a few techniques in different places that I wanted to try - so I combined them all into one and gave it a try. Overall I like the way it turned out - and those leaf stamps from Stampin Up are one of my favorite stamp sets.
