The Witches’ Dream Book & Fortune Teller

Hello crafty peeps! Happy Sunday – here’s to a wonderful week coming up! Today is my Featured Post Day on the Gecko Galz blog and I’m stoked to share my DT inspiration project using Gecko Galz Good Fortune ephemera and Frightfully Delightful Journal Icons. I created an awesome little accordion book with journal tags. OMG, so fun – I love the front cover!

2018_08120005a

Using six different Gecko Galz digital fortune teller images, I created pockets on each ‘page’ and tucked a journal card in each one. I rounded the corners and inked the edges of all the images and tags, and embellished each image with a Clear Star shimmer pen and/or Crystal Clear Sparkle Overlay marker for a little interest.

2018_08120006a

Here are close-ups of the fortune teller images…

And here’s the back – love the Ouija board!

2018_08120010a

One final shot of the book closed and tied up. I adhered a length of sheer ribbon beneath the front cover that I wrapped around the back and tied in a bow. I’m stoked about how this turned out!

Happy Halloween

** 10/13/18 Top 3 Winner at A Gem of A Challenge! **

Hello, my crafty friends! It’s a cool brisk morning here in Colorado (weather I truly love) and I’m happy to be back this morning to share my Stinkin’ Inkers DT inspiration project for The Eyes Have It Challenge! We want to see your project… yep, you guessed it… with eyes on it! I had an absolute blast creating this card. I have a pack of mini wiggly eyes in my stash and out they came, four pairs of them!

2018_08230005a

I cut a large circle aperture in my background papers and stamped the sentiment, a spider web and some bats. Then I stamped four mummies, punched them out and colored them with Spectrum Noir markers. I added the mini wiggly eyes and tiny shimmery hearts to them after I positioned them in the aperture.

2018_08230006a

I kept the inside fairly simple with a stamped sentiment and a couple bats on a layered panel.

2018_08230007a

One more angled shot so you can see how cute these little mummies really are, lol! And yes, the patterns on their mini wiggly eyes is from the LED lights in the top of my light box, and it does kind of give them a little creep-appeal, lol!

Something Wicked This Way Comes tag

Hello, my crafty friends! October is a month of fun… cooler weather and wonderful smells, my birthday (the big ‘six-oh’ this year), Halloween, and a little closer to Christmas! Another fun challenge is live over at Gecko Galz and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project for the October Witching Hour Customer Challenge!

customer-challenge-badge
I was in the mood to create a tag, so I created a fun and creepy wicked tag that doubles as a gift card holder. And it’s packed with lots of layers and fun printed Gecko Galz stuff!

2018_08190001a

This was so much fun! I hand-cut my tag and distressed the edges. I added some Gecko Galz digital paper, cork tape and rust paste with stencil. While the rust paste was drying, I gathered Gecko Galz digital ephemera, brads and other doo-dads, flowers and ribbon. And how creepy is that little girl?! LOL!

2018_08190002a

I fussy cut and inked the edges of all the pieces of digital ephemera and started laying out all the elements.

2018_08190003a

When I was happy with the placement of everything, I started gluing and adhering. Fortunately, I had punched out the watch face and covered it with Glossy Accents the night before so it was dry and ready to use.

2018_08190004a

I had lots of ribbon scraps to use on the top – I’m a ‘ribbon ho’ and don’t throw much away, lol!

2018_08190005a

There are tons of layers on this, that’s for sure. Did I mention how creepy that little girl is?! I dotted Glossy Accents on her eyes for a little extra creepiness…

2018_08190006a

Here’s a shot of the back showing the gift card holder. Really happy with how this turned out!

2018_08190007a

Products used:
Cardstock/Paper: GKD Onyx Black Cardstock, Kraft Corrugated Paper
Stamps: Frightfully Delightful Journal Papers and Icons, Alter Me Collage Sheets
Ink: Ranger Black Soot Distress Ink; Spectrum Noir Crystal Clear Sparkle Overlay marker; Tattered Angels Tarnished Silver, Orange and Moss Green Glimmer Mists

Autumn Blessings

** 10/8/18 Top 3 Pick at Always Fun Challenges!  **
** 10/11/18 Top 3 Pick at Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog! **

Hi everyone! Happy Monday and it’s already October 1st! A new challenge is live this morning over Love To Scrap Challenge Blog and I’m stoked to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #114 – Fall Back! We’re being sponsored this month by the amazing CAS-ual Fridays Stamps and we’d love to see a Fall project which could include Fall, Autumn, Thanksgiving and/or Halloween! I created a pretty Autumn card using the gorgeous Autumn Blessings Stamps and Acorn Fri-Dies from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps!

Leslie

Fall is my favorite season and it was totally easy finding Fall colored paper to go with the cardstock, stamps and dies. Everything just went together seamlessly. I cut a tag and embossed the sentiment on it, and then cut all the leaves in pairs (two of each color) and arranged them on/under the tag. I love corrugated paper so I cut a strip of that, and then the final touch were a few gemstones.

2018_0930005a

I decorated the inside panel with a leftover strip of paper from the front and stamped a continuation of the sentiment on the inside.

2018_0930006a

Here’s one final angled shot to show the dimension. I just love how this turned out!

2018_0930007a

Products used:
Cardstock/Paper: Stampin’ Up Thick Whisper White, Tangerine Tango, Garden Green, Lemon Lime Twist, Crushed Curry cardstock, GKD Dark Chocolate cardstock, Stampin’ Up Painted Autumn DSP, Kraft corrugated paper
Stamps: CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Autumn Blessings Stamps and Acorn Fri-Dies
Ink: Stampin’ Up Cajun Craze ink, Versamark Dazzle
Dies/Punches: Stampin’ Up Scalloped Tag Topper punch

Hi everyone! It’s October 1st and Monday and quite a busy morning! A new challenge is live this morning over at Mix It Up Challenge Blog and I’m proud to share my DT inspiration project for MIUCB #16 – Anything Goes + Monochrome! Our challenges are always Anything Goes and we’d absolutely love to see you play the technique twist – this month it would be a monochrome project in variations of any color!

I really love fun folds and am always on the hunt for new ones. My inspiration for this friendship card came from my friend Dawn who created a fold-out panel card HERE. I absolutely fell in love with this fold and just had to try it! Love how it turned out!

Leslie

I got some new Stampin’ Up designer series paper a while back and settled on several patterned papers from that collection along with some contrasting cardstock for this card. I stamped a sentiment, punched it with a circle punch and layered it on a scalloped die cut and two more circle die cuts.

2018_07100009a

I stamped an image and sentiment in the fold out panel.

2018_07100010a

Here’s a shot of the fold out panel completely open.

2018_07100011a

I stamped a sentiment on the back as well. Such a fun card!
