Some Halloween Fun

Hi Crafty Folk,
Fair warning, this post is photo heavy!
I have two final Halloween cards to show you. Both of these were from the same template, a 12" x 12" folded in half with a circle pop out.

Have an Artful Day!

Have a Wicked Halloween

Good Morning Crafters,
I realize that Halloween has past and Christmas is fast approaching, but I still wanted to show you some Halloween fun that I created. This card is made with a 12" x 12" paper folded in half and with a circle pop out. I think it took about five tries to finally get one to line up properly!

I used a tree mask and black molding paste for a spooky night time effect. I then worked in a bit of grey paint into the branches. The haunted house is cut from my cricut cartridge Art Philosophy, Close to My Heart.

Have an Artful Day!

Birthday Card - Keep the gears grinding and the heart ticking

Good Morning to you all.
Today I am showing you a Birthday card for my father in law. Just before his birthday he had gone through open heart surgery and now was finally on the road to recovery. I took some pictures of hearts from old medical studies (thanks to Graphics Fairy) and worked these into my theme.

 'Keep the gears grinding and the heart ticking!'

 I inked the chipboard gears with a silver metallic and then stamped with brown staz-on ink. I also used a gear mask and some brown and silver paint mixed with modelling paste to add some texture. The tag pulls out and says Happy Birthday on it.
 a view of the inside....
Have a good day Crafters!

Birthday Card - Ink Misting on Gloss Paper

Here is a birthday card for my Mom-in-Law. I embossed glossy paper and spritzed with mists. Then I used a mask to apply gold paint mixed with gesso. And, of course I must have flowers and lace!

This was a fun experiment and something I will definitely try again.

Take Care Crafters!
