Just Chicken In!

Hello my crafty friends! Candice back with you today with a fun farm fresh slimline card!

I used the new release with a few classics for my card:

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

For my background, I first die cut the scalloped frame from red cardstock and adhered to my card front. I then die cut the stitched panel from Bristol Smooth cardstock and used a stencil I created from theHexagon die with pumice stone to create the chicken wire. Don’t you love to use your stash in different ways!

Next, I created 5 tags from the Window Quad Square dies, such a great die set with so many uses! The base was cut from thick white cardstock and the tops from the yellow pattern paper and threaded some red twine through the tops. I stamped the chickens and eggs, colored them with copic markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

To put the card together, I added the tags with foam tape and then the images on top of the tags with foam tape for lots of dimension. To finish, I simply stamped the sentiment along the center bottom with versafine black ink!

Thank you so much!

The Boo Crew!

These have to be the cutest trick or treaters I have seen from Paperie Ink stamps! I’d give my whole bowl of candy to that adorable little ghost!

I used these products to create my card:

I began my slimline with an 8 1/2 x 3 12/ card base.

For the background, I first die cut a the stitched scalloped panel and trimmed to fit off center and glued to my card front. I then used the circles stencil with blueprint sketch & salty ocean to create the backgrounds for my images.

Next, I stamped the images from the sets listed above, colored them with copic markers and used my scan n’ cut to cut them out. I adhered them with either glue or foam tape to give dimension against the flat circle backgrounds. I then added a few sequins and white accents with a white gel pen.

To finish, I heat embossed the 2 sentiments in white on the stitched banners cut from thick black cardstock and adhered with foam tape along the bottom of the circles and trimmed the edges!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Boo to You!

I have a fun Halloween card for you using some Purple Onion stamps illustrated by the talented Stacey Yacula!

I used these products to create my card:

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

For my background, I die cut the stitched panel from grey pattern paper and adhered to the front of the card. I then die cut multiples of the Boo to You, one from black and white polka dot pattern paper and 4 from thick white cardstock and layered them, the top one a little off center.

Next, I stamped the bunny, bat and owl, colored them with copic markers and fussy cut them out. I adhered them with foam tape around the Boo to You.

To finish the card, I heat embossed the sentiment on a strip of Bristol Smooth in white and then inked with carved pumpkin and dried marigold and adhered to the Boo to You with foam tape. To tie it all together I added a few orange domes!

This was a cute card that came together quickly and I hope you enjoy it!

Halloween Fluff

I just had to go with some Halloween humor with these adorable Create a Smile stamps!

I used these great Create a Smile products:

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

For the background, I first trimmed a piece of Bristol Smooth a little smaller than my card base and inked the clouds with pumice stone oxide ink. I then stamped the equal sign and the sentiment in the center.

I created each picture frame to show the transition from one scene to the next for my story. I did that by first die cutting multiples of the stitched frames from thick black cardstock and layered them. The panel behind the frames I trimmed from Bristol Smooth and inked with twisted citron, peeled paint & black soot. On the first one, I heat embossed the rain in white along the top.

Next, I stamped the werewolf, fluffy werewolf, moon, and leaves, colored them with copic markers and fussy cut them out.

To put the card together, I added the clouds along the top of the frames under the top layer and trimmed the leaves and added with foam tape. I added some white accents to the images for the final touch!

I hope this card has brought a smile to your face today!

Thank you,

Candice

Howdy!

Hello! It’s Candice back with you today with a fun farm scene highlighting the adorable Little Buckaroo stamp set!

I used lots of the new Sunny Studio stamps release:

I began my slimline card with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base that is just right for your standard size envelopes.

For my background, I first die cut the stitched panel from Bristol Smooth cardstock and inked the top half with salty ocean and tumbled glass. I then die cut the stitched cloud and stamped the sentiment. I die cut the 3 grass strips using the Basic Borders dies and inked each one with mowed lawn and shabby shutters.

Next, I stamped all the images, colored them with copic markers and used the coordinating dies listed above to cut them out. I either glued or used foam tape to add lots of dimension to the scene and glued it onto the Kraft card front to put it all together!

Sending Magic

Hi fellow crafter’s! It’s Candice with you today showing how you can do a clean and simple style on a slimline card!

I used these awesome products all from the Crafty Meraki store:

I began my slimline card with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base which fits nicely into your standard size envelopes.

For the background, I first die cut the stitched panel from Bristol Smooth cardstock and inked the top half with carved pumpkin, fossilized amber and scattered straw oxide inks. I then die cut a strip of the grass from thick black cardstock and heat embossed the best witches in white near the bottom left. I glued to the bottom of the inked area and then stamped the second sentiment under the grass in versafine black ink.

Next, I stamped the witch and pumpkins, colored them with copic markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I either glued or used foam tape to add dimension and stamped the web and spider in the top corner and the star near the sentiment to finish!

I would love to see your take on a CAS slimline design and please tag #craftymeraki if you share on IG!

Thank you for visiting,

Stop Ghosting Me!

I just find these ghosts from Paperie Ink to be the cutest and the sentiments to be even cuter!

I used these products for my fun card:

I began my slimline with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base which fits perfectly into your standard size envelopes.

For my background, I first die cut the BOO using my cameo silhouette and the font Impact and then die cut the stitched frame around it. I then die cut the grass from thick black cardstock and glued behind the bottom of the BOO.

I inked a piece of Bristol Smooth with wilted violet, shaded lilac and milled lavender and then splattered with the same colors with a wet paint brush. Once that was dry I glued the spooky fence that I had cut from grey velvet cardstock and adhered the BOO panel over it with foam tape.

Next, I stamped the ghosts, tombstones and clouds, colored them with copic markers and then used my scan n’ cut to cut them out. I adhered them either with glue or foam tape for dimension and added the inserts from my BOO cut. I then heat embossed the sentiment in white on a stitched banner and added with foam tape. To finish, I simply sprinkled a few sequins and domes to draw the eye!

I would love to see all the colors you could use and backgrounds that could be used to create fun Halloween scenes with the new Paperie Ink release!

Thank you for visiting!

Reverse Confetti New Release Blog Hop!

I am excited to be Guest Designing for this new September release by Reverse Confetti on their Release Blog Hop today! I just love their style and the new Pick of the Patch is no exception and I have 2 cards using it for you today!

For my first card I used these new release products:

I began my slimline with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base which fits nicely into your standard size envelopes.

For my background, I first created my partial striped panel on my cameo silhouette and stamped the sentiment in the center and the trees along the side. The open sentiments in the Seasonal Say It All stamp set is awesome and the trees are part of the Peace Tree set which is free with your $60 purchase! I then inked a piece of Bristol Smooth with evergreen bough & speckled egg and glued behind the open stripes.

Next, I stamped all the images from the Pick of the Patch stamp set, colored them with copic markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I adhered them to the card either with glue or foam tape to give dimension across the card and finished with a few green domes!

For my second card, I went with a fun fall day with lots of movement with the leaves, pumpkins and adorable critters!

I love that I was able to create this full card using just the one stamp set, Pick of the Patch!

I also began this card with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base.

For my background, I again went to my cameo silhouette and created the circles on my front panel. I inked the circle sections on my Bristol Smooth piece with evergreen bough & iced spruce and using a paintbrush splattered the same colors on the panel. I then stamped the sentiments in navy and pink to match my colors. I adhered over the panel with foam tape for a bit of a pop!

Next, I stamped my images from the Pick of the Patch stamp set onto watercolor paper, colored them with my Zig clean color markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I added them to the card with foam tape and glued a few tucked in behind. To finish, I added some blue domes!

I hope you are inspired by my creations today and that you are ready to continue on your blog hop for more amazing inspiration from the September release!

Thank you for stopping by,

Candice

Classic Merry Christmas

Hello! It’s Candice with you today and so excited that Sunny Studio stamps has come out with some versatile slimline dies! They are made for my style!

I used these new release products for my classic Christmas slimline card:

I began my slimline card with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base which fits nicely into your standard size envelopes.

For the background, I first die cut the scalloped panel from white cardstock and the center stitched rectangle from red cardstock. I then heat embossed the large sentiment in gold on white cardstock and used the new coordinating dies to cut it out. Using foam tape, I adhered it to the center of the red panel.

Next, I heat embossed the poinsettias and berries in gold on red cardstock, colored them with colored pencils and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I laid them out where I wanted them on the sides of the Merry Christmas and then heat embossed the pine needles in white directly onto the stitched red panel.

To put the card together, I glued the berries down first and then using foam tape I adhered the poinsettias trimming the edges with scissors. To finish, I added some white pearls to fill in the space and draw the eye in!

Thank you for stopping by today!
