Hello everyone!

Welcome to the first edition of the HALLOWEEN PARTY BLOG HOP by LDRS Creative!

The design team has prepared some WICKED inspiration using the latest seasonal products in store, including them in super-duper fun tutorials at each stop. 

We are so EXCITED to celebrate this special day with you all, that we have decided to offer a 31% DISCOUNT on all Halloween and Fall products in store (*excluding bundles, using code Wicked31, valid until October 31st, MIDNIGHT EST).

Today I am sharing a sweet card with you using Winnie Magic Stamp. Isn't this image the sweetest.
To make the card start by stamping the image onto alcohol marker friendly card stock and Hybrid Raven ink pad  next color it using alcohol based markers and trim your panel down to 3 1/3" x 5 1/2" 

Tie black twine on top of the panel positioning the bow to the left side. Create top folding note card using black card stock. Cut strip of patterned paper measuring 2" x 5 1/2". 
Adhere the strip on the left side offsetting it for a bit from the right edge. Then using fun foam adhere the colored pane. Add some splatters and dots using Black Enamel liquid dots. Let it dry completely before handing.




Make sure to hop around, leave a comment at each stop, and answer the mysterious questions (haha!) on the first stop. 

Here's the list and keep hoping:

And remember to use that discount code before it turns into a pumpkin at MIDNIGHT! ;-)

Impression Obsession: Happy Haunting



Hi stampers!

It's time for another Impression Obsession challenge. This time around it's "Happy Haunting".
For my card today I decided to use the Little Monster stamp along with Happy Halloween sentiment. I started by stamping the image on some Bristol card stock using the IO Black Hybrid ink and colored with Arteza watercolor pens. Next I cut it out. On a 3 3/4" x 5" Bristol Panel I stamped the sentiment in black and added a little strip of black glitter paper. Adhered to pink card base, added the image and some Nuvo jewel drops.

Picket Fence Studio: October Release

Hi stampers!
Happy Sunday! Today is the day, the new Picket Fence studios release is live!!! And it's full with . some amazing stamps, life changing blender brushes (now you can purchase them in smaller groupings) etc. 
Here is just a little part of the release. 
First up is the set Sip Happens! It's my kind of stamp set, as my choice of drink is wine! 
I made alcohol ink background with some foiling, then used Versafine ink to stamp one of the sentiments from the set and embossed it with Detail Black ink. Trimmed down the panel to 4" x 5 1/4" and adhered using fun foam to black top folding note card.

For my second card I used one of the cutest sets from this release,Like a Crafty Fox. I stamped the image on white card stock and colored with copic markers, next stamped the sentiment from My Man, My Friend. I used the new smallest blending circle stencil to add some Soft Pool ink around the fox. Trimmed the panel down to 3 3/4" x 5" and adhered to Terracotta Tile top folding card base.
