Fall Girl

Hi Everyone,

Today I am pleased to be spotlighting the new digi stamp "Fall Girl." This digi stamp is a refreshing twist to traditional fall genre of pumpkins and ghosts, adding sweet detail to any project.

As you know by now, I love to glitter my digi stamps. (Click here to learn how.) Today, though, I used a slightly different technique. I glittered each section with transparent glitter - then colored the glitter with Copic markers. This allows you to add some dimension with shading - yet still having the fun of glitter.

I put the focus on Fall Girl by using a Shadow-Box Card....but the card folds flat for mailing. Fall Girl is set off with Delicate Asters and a jeweled pumpkin.


Enjoy this week's projects!

Fall in love


Hi everyone, it is Timi here and I'm showing you a card with a window on it.
I used the new Fall in Love digi and coloured them with Promarkers. I stamped the heart on the embossed card and cute out the hearth shape.




It was a very quick card to make, but still pretty cute. I hope you like it.

Nuts about You!

Hi everyone, it is Timi here again.
This time I have a easel card for you. I used this super cute Squirrel Present image and created an acorn shaped card.
I coloured the image with my Promarkers and cut her out.

Then I printed an acorn image form the internet. I cannot free hand draw, so I had to rely on the internet as my source. 
I chose the pattern paper and a sheet of brown cardstock and traced the acorn. I cut the pieces out and glued them together. Then I assembled the easel part of the card too.
All the leaves are cut out with my eCraft electronic cutting machine. You can see the dimension of them in the photo below.



Check out all the cute new images and the fantastic projects by the 2 Cute Ink Design Team.

Snowflake Owl....

Hi all, Nicole here today to share a card made with the Snowflake Owl digi. I inked up a card and stamped it with a woodgrain stamp. I die cut the circle out of it and stuck my owl onto the inside of the card to peek out through the hole. I added a sentiment on a hand cut banner on the front of the card.

You can't tell in the picture but I added stickles to the star on the sentiment and also onto the snowflake points on the image inside too for some sparkle!


I love this little guy with his scarf and ear warmers. There is definitely more of a chill in the air and I am getting into winter mode with this guy!


Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you are all having crafty fun!

More Fox Fun!

Hi all,

Nicole stopping by here today with another card using the adorable Fall Fox! This little guy is just so adorable I couldn't resist creating another card with him!

I kept the papers nice and warm and autumnal and made it into a good luck card. I love the way this fox is so versatile he really allows for super fun use!

I coloured the fox with my Inktense pencils. I inked up the sky behind the fox with Tumbled Glass distress ink. I hope this little guy inspired you to have fun and celebrate!!

Happy Crafting,

Pumpkin Raking Leaves

Hi Everyone,

As I mentioned last week, the Halloween Cardmaking season is now in full swing at my house.  Seriously, the 2 Cute Ink Halloween and Fall digi stamps are amazingly fun to work with!  With cute Halloween/Fall spiders and pumpkins and bats and cats, these digi stamps will make your cards pop! 

For today's card, I used the Pumpkin/Leaves digi stamp....and loved how this one turned out in glitter (especially the leaves).  I popped the pumpkin up with a wobble sticker.  So my pumpkin is an "action" raker.  Instructions for using glitter with a digi stamp can be found here.



Here's my pumpkin "wobbling."

Supplies Used
  • Pumpkin Leaves Digi Stamp
  • Glitter

Fun tag with Spider Witch

Hi everyone,
It is Timi here today with a Halloween tag featuring the very cute Spider Witch digital stamp.


It was really fun to create this, because I wanted to try and paper piece the image. So I printed it onto the grey designer paper that wasn't too busy with patterns. And then I printed it onto white card and coloured the image in and cut out the body, the hat and the broom. I then glued these piece on the grey designer paper. From then it was really easy to create a tag and embellish the tag.

I hope you liked this idea,
Timi

Fall Fox!

Hi all,

Nicole stopping by here today with a card using the adorable Fall Fox! This little guy is adorable and so much fun. He looks so happy I feel you could use him for lots of occasions, celebrations especially. To me it looks as if he is saying 'yipee!!'.

I coloured him quite simply and used papers in shades of brown and greens. I die cut the fox from a circle and mounted this on a star die cut. I wrapped some twine around the card for some texture. I then scattered some star die cuts over the card. I stamped my sentiment and mounted that onto a star also. A sprinkle of sequins finished the card off nicely.

 I mounted the fox & star panel on some foam pads to add some more dimension to the card. But I wanted to keep it fairly flat for postage at the same time so I didn't go too wild with the dimension.
I hope you enjoyed this cute fox as much as I do! Thanks for stopping by today,

Happy Crafting,

Nicole
