Headless Horseman Light-up Card for Whimsy Stamps

I have another card for you today for the Whimsy Stamps Halloweener Design Team, and this one LIGHTS UP! This card features the Headless Horseman Clear Stamp Set, The Shaker Maker Glitter Globe Die Set, Nevermore Paper Pack, Tree Silhouette Rubber Stamp, and the bats are from the Build a Graveyard Die Set. Links to these are at the bottom of this post as well as links to the EZ Lights from Pear Blossom Press.

I filmed a tutorial as I was making this and threw in a mini ink blending tutorial as well as a mini machine stitching on paper tutorial, so it ended up being kind of long. Regardless, I hope you find it informative and helpful.

I used the EZ Lights with the set of three lights on wires for this card. The push button for them is the lowest bat on the card. It lights up just the Headless Horseman's Head. You do have to fussy cut the teeny, tiny eyes, nose and mouth with a Craft Knife, but it is worth the time and patience in my opinion!

I just love the look of this stamp with his face lit up!

That being said, the card and stamps are still just as great when his face doesn't light up, so if you aren't in to the trouble of the fussy cutting and fooling around with the lights, not a problem. Just stamp it all and you still have a great card!

I truly hope you enjoyed the video tutorial on this card and like Jennifer McGuire did for me, that it sparks an idea or inspiration for your own make.

Have a crafty day!

Tim Holtz Sizzix Halloween Release

Such a FUN Halloween release from Tim Holtz and Sizzix right? Here are photos of both of the makes for the live, I have several you haven't seen that I will be posting this week. I'm keeping those under wraps until I post.  I have a tutorial for this Otis Mischievious make that will be coming soon.

This fun card using Mischievous, Bold Text and Pumpkin Duo is very straightforward. I just thought I would make a card with cats being cats. Laying on stuff, sitting by stuff, and walking on stuff you are trying to read. LOL! Fellow cat servants can relate.

More Sizzix Halloween will be coming soon so be sure you are following me on Youtube and Instagram as I will be posting there when I publish tutorial.

Thanks for popping in today and celebrating the new release!

Have a crafty day!

Halloweeds Magic Slider Card for Whimsy Stamps

 

I am so happy to finally get to announce that I am part of the first ever, inaugural Whimsy Stamps Halloweener Design Team. For the next three months you will see some fun Halloween inspiration using Whimsy Stamps' dies, paper and stamps. Let's get started with the first one, a Magic Slider Card featuring the Halloweeds Clear Stamp Set.

As I was making this card, I recorded myself, so here is a Youtube video tutorial showing how I made this card.
I do not own a single alcohol ink pen, such as Copic or any other brand, so I water color my images with Distress Inks. It's just what I do.

Along with the Halloweeds stamp set, I used the Shaker Maker Rectangle dies, and the Autumn Hues paper pack, all from Whimsy Stamps. Links to the products are at the end of this post.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog.  I hope you found something in the video tutorial that was insterting, inspiring or educational.

Have a crafty day!

Summertime Memories Mini File Folder Vignette

 

The summertime memories version of the Mini File Folder Drawer project was a fun one to make. I got bogged down with it though and didn't finish it until the Sizzix Chapter 3 dies were released. They were just the inspiration I needed to pair with the Idea-ology elements to get this project over the finished line.

As with the Christmas version, I have a video walk through, but I also have lots of tutorial elements in this video. Below are all the photos of each file folder and the details for reference.  



 
 Before I start the folder photos, I thought I would post the die cutting elements that I posted on Instagram.
Using various dies from the Sizzix Chapter 3 release of Postale, Specimen and Collector, I cut tags, postage stamps, arrows, envelopes, and more from Backdrops papers and Pocket Cards.
I also used the Labels Snippets and cut some of the words from Specimen to make labels for each folder, and I applied lots of the Eccentric Remnant Rubs to the folders, and all of the tags, stamps, labels and such that I cut out.
 
If you are careful you can cut out specific words or images to make cool embellishments.
The back of this Pocket Card was just blue text, but it still makes for great elements.
The florals on this Pocket Card made such pretty stamps!
Here they are! Tags, tickets, stamps, arrows, reinforcers, and other embellishments with Remnant Rubs all inked and ready to embellish the Mini File Folders
I cut several of this tiny vertical and horizontal file folders by using a retangle die from Postal and cutting so that the folded side of the paper wasn't cut. Then I added the little file tab. This allowed me to keep some of the cool Backdrops elements and showcase them inside the folders.

The following are all of the folders in the order that I showed them in the video.
