Happy Hauntings with Glitterstock!

I’m having so much fun choosing which Glitterstock color to use for a new project and decided to use Tangerine for this card!  The color itself prompted a Halloween card with it’s gorgeous rusty-orange glitters!  To begin this card, I tapped Carved Pumpkin distress oxide ink onto my craft mat then spritzed it with water and dragged my watercolor cardstock through it.  After drying with my heat tool, I used Black Soot next, again drying before adding my final color, Dried Marigold.

If you look closely you can see the faint impression of Winnie & Walter’s Scenery stencil which I foiled using Thermoweb’s Deco Foil in Copper!  It made me think of a spider web!  Anyway, after dusting the surface with my Embossing Buddy, I heat-embossed my Inkadinkado stamp in black right over all the colors!

I have a skulls and crossbone stamp which I use on my biker cards, and thought it’d make a fun accent so stamped that in Raven Detail ink over the background.  Next I used my Stitched Rectangle dies to cut the panel and also cut the edge of a strip of Tangerine Glitterstock and attached them together with Thermoweb’s Sticky Tape Runner, then mounted it to a panel of white card stock.  I used my scissors to rough up the edges of the white paper.

I adhered the panel to a black card base which I embossed with Tim Holtz’ Gridlock Set folder, then added some copper sequins for a bit of bling to accent the Glitterstock on the left!  The sentiment is from a retired CTMH set called Thriller and I heat-embossed it onto white scraps, trimmed it down and mounted it with Thermoweb Sticky Dots!  I love how all the pieces came together in this card!  If you’re looking for a great glitter card stock, be sure to consider Brutus Monroe’s Glitterstock!  It comes in a variety of colors, doesn’t leave glitter “crumbs” at all and cuts like a dream!

More Fall Frenzy!

I’ve been on a bit of a watercolor kick lately and created this fall card with Winnie & Walter’s Renee’s Leaves stamp set and their cool stencil, Scenery!  As usual, I had no idea what I was going to make, but began by just sponging distress oxide inks (Broken China/Faded Jeans) onto my watercolor cardstock then dripped water onto it and dried with my heat tool.  I placed the stencil over it and sponged more Faded Jeans oxide ink through the center portion.

On a separate piece of watercolor cardstock, I heat-embossed several of Renee’s Leaves then colored them with Zig markers and a watery brush.  I fussy-cut them out and then attached them with bits of Thermoweb’s 3D Foam Squares for lift.

Black spatters of paint and some drops of Black Nuvo Drops added interest!  My sentiment is from The Greeting Farm.  I like how the geometric pattern of the stencil compliments the organic falling leaves!  Happy Fall!

Wonderful Winnie & Walter!

Brutus Monroe is hanging out with Winnie & Walter this month and we get to play too!  I’m loving these new stamps and had so much fun creating this card using the beautiful Anna’s Floras set!  I paired it with another lovely set called Renee’s Leaves AND their way-cool Multi-Faceted Creative Screenings stencil!  But I’m getting ahead of myself, so let’s back up…

The first thing I did for my card was to heat-emboss in black the large blossom from Anna’s Floras and some of Renee’s Leaves onto a piece of watercolor cardstock, then colored them in with Zig markers.  I fussy-cut them out and set them aside to create my background!

On a panel of white cardstock, I laid down the awesome stencil called Scenery and used a sponge dauber to lightly fill in the spaces with a pale green ink, filling just the center of the design.  I then stamped more of Renee’s Leaves over the stenciled design, and spattered on some black paint.  You know how much I love spatters!    After that, I layered on my fussy-cut blossom and leaves, adding a circlet of twine beneath them as an accent.  A strip of polka-dotted paper at the bottom was another cute accent, and I adhered the panel to a base card of Brutus Monroe’s lovely Lunchbag cardstock!  Voila!  When I’m ready to send this, I’ll add an appropriate sentiment!  Thank you for stopping by and be sure to check out the other team members creations!  Look for Aletha,  Marie,  Berina and Waleska!  I’m loving their projects too!
