Batty For You


There's a bit of a chill in the air and the stores are loading up shelves with tasty treats...that can only mean Halloween is right around the corner!  Whether for the upcoming holiday or to tell someone they are pretty special to you, Lawn Fawn's Batty For You is a darling set to use!


Here is how I created my card:

1)  First I layered black cardstock onto the card base.

2)  On a piece of white cardstock - cut 1/4" shorter than the black layered piece - I placed a diecut circle in the left-hand corner and taped the part that came off the card with Spellbinders Best Ever Craft Tape just to hold it in place.

3)  Then, I blended these Distress Oxide Inks onto the white piece going from the bottom to the top:  Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry, Faded Jeans and Chipped Sapphire with Ranger Mini Ink Blending Tools.

4)  Taking watered-down black paint and Tim Holtz Splatter Brush, I added splatters to the card.


5)  Removing the diecut circle, I then blended Distress Oxide Hickory Smoke ink using Tim Holtz Bubble Layered Stencil in a few places on the white, unblended circle.

6)  The Lawn Fawn Batty For You images were stamped with Honey Bee Stamps Intense Black Ink and Copic colored (see colors listed below) and cut them out with the Lawn Fawn Batty For You coordinating dies.

7)  After arranging the pieces, I adhered the colored images and sentiment strip using Scrapbook Adhesives 3D Foam Strips.

8) Using the star dies in the die set, I cut shiny silver cardstock and randomly adhered the stars to the card.

Saturday Coffee Cafe - Fall-ing For Coffee


Happy Saturday and welcome to the Cafe!  I'm so glad you stopped in today to see what's brewin'...

I love fall colors and creating fall cards...actually the next few months is my FAVORITE card-making season!

I used several new Pink & Main goodies today!  The coffee bean background was created using one of the Foilables panels in the Coffee Lovers Foilables Kit with Pebbles Bronze CheerFoil and ran them through the Mini Minc Foiling Machine (this background used the negative of the foil and used with one of the Garden Color Toner Sheets then ran through the Mini Minc Foiling Machine).

These adorable to-go cups are from the new Thanks a Latte stamp set and coordinating dies.  The sentiment is from the new Autumn Greetings Dies.

Thankful For You


Have you seen the newest Pink & Main Release?! There are SO MANY fantastic products you'll want them ALL - NEW stamps, dies, CheerFoils, Foilables, embossing folders, a fall stencil, new Monthly Stamp/Die set, Foil Bundle and SO MUCH MORE!

For my card, I cut a pattern from the Pumpkin Seasons Paper Pack with a Stitched Rectangle Set 1 die for the background. I used the Crosshatch Background die to cut Asphalt Cardstock and layered that onto the card base. The big, shimmery pumpkin was created using the Thankful Pumpkin Foilables Panels with Glitzy Gold CheerFoil and running it through the Mini Minc Foiling Machine then fussy cut the pumpkin. These sweet images are from the new Warm and Cozy stamps and coordinating dies. The sentiment is from the Fall Sentiments Foilables Panels which I foiled with Glitzy Gold CheerFoil.

Happy Fall Y'all


Hey, Crafty Friends - are you excited that Fall is right around the corner!  Kathy here sharing my last card as a Gerda Steiner Designs Guest Designer - it's been SO much fun and am so grateful to have had this opportunity to highlight some fabulous goodies from Gerda Steiner Designs!!

For my card, I first layered dark brown cardstock to the card base.  I then layered several different fall-themed pattern papers to the dark brown cardstock base.  Using a pierced circle die, I cut orange cardstock for a backdrop to the copic colored images.

This darling squirrel and branches/leaves images from the HAPPY FALL stamp set were Copic colored and fussy cut then popped up onto the card.  The sentiment, also from this set, was stamped onto yellow cardstock and cut with a mini banner die then popped up onto the card.

 Here's to a blessed, happy Fall season to all!

Autumn Greetings


The NEW RELEASE has bushels and bushels of Fall goodness!! Wonderful new stamps, dies, CheerFoils, Foilables, a stencil and embossing folders - wow!!

For my first card, I first layered rust cardstock onto the card base. For the shimmery leaves background, I used the Falling Leaves Foilables panel with Fairy Wings Green CheerFoil and run through the Mini Minc Foiling Machine. I then used the new Knit Sweater 3D Embossing Folder to emboss the foiled piece and trimmed the bottom part of it. The layered word diecuts are from the new Autumn Greetings Dies set. I stamped and die cut these leaves from the Autumn Leaves stamp set with coordinating Autumn Leaves dies.

For my next card, I created a pretty, shiny background using the negative of the foil from my first card with one of the Fall Ombre Foilables Panels and ran it through the Mini Minc Foiling Machine. I cut Coffee Shop cardstock with one of the Stitched Rectangle Set 1 Dies for the backdrop for this darling August Pup image. The sentiment I used is from the new Fall Sentiments Foilables Panels and Gold CheerFoil and run through the Mini Minc Foiling Machine
