Day 26 of the 31 Days of Halloween Spooktacular Video Hop | Mummy Card




Hello and Happy early Halloween everyone!

Katy from Hook Line and Inker has been hosting a Halloween Video Hop on YouTube.
It's called The 31 Days of Halloween Spooktacular Video Hop!

The 26th day of the hop belongs to me and I made a
Halloween card that I am in love with!



How cute is that adorable little Mummy???

I used the super cute Unity Mummy Stamp and I just love how easy it was to color!
There is lots of shading lines on the stamp so it was like a roadmap to show you 
where to put your darker colors. 


I included the coloring in my video so you can 
see the process.  I also have been loving ink blending lately and I used 
3 different colors of purple Distress ink on my card for the background.
I couldn't decide if I wanted a background with or without a moon or if
I wanted white stars or glittered stars so I made both.
For my final card I decided on the moon with the glittery stars but here is
what the other 2 backgrounds looked like.



For the finishing touches on the card I added some 
Lawn Fawn Quinn's ABC's dies for the word "boo" and I backed 
them with foam to make them dimensional. I also added some bats from the 



I really enjoyed everything about this card and I hope you enjoy my 
YouTube video! Below is a list of all the supplies (with links) that I used to make this card.
If you have any questions at all please don't hesitate to 
leave a comment here or on my video.



Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed my card and my video!

Light Up Halloween




Good morning and welcome to my blog, if this isn't your first visit than welcome back!
Today I am up on The Rabbit Hole Designs blog and I have a fun Halloween card to share with you!
You've got to love a holiday that says......"It's ok to combine orange and purple with each other!"
You wouldn't think that these colors would look good together but I just love them
blended next to each other! Maybe it's that they are so opposite, they do say opposites attract!
Anyway, I just love the color combination and I love the way this card turned out!


The best part about this card is the light up pumpkin!
I used the EZ Lights by Pear Blossom Press.
These lights are super easy to use and make easy work of making light up cards!
They consist of one battery pack attached to 3 mini lights.
I placed the 3 lights under the pumpkins eyes and nose.



Here is a quick recipe for my card:

1) I used the largest Wavy Wonky Rectangle die from Kat Scrappiness to cut a
panel out of Bristol Smooth card stock. (I love this paper for blending Distress Oxide Inks)

2) Blend Distress Oxide inks: Carved Pumpkin into Spiced Marmalade on the bottom and
Wilted Violet into Shaded Lilac at the top. Next I spritzed the panel with water using the 
Tim Holtz Distress Sprayer and dry to give your background a distressed look.

3) Stamp Happy Halloween from the "Boo To You" stamp set in black
ink at the top of the panel and add the little spider around the words.

4) Add grassy border at the bottom of the panel to ground your card. I used patterned paper
from the Queen and Co Dots Paper Pad and I cut it out using the Lawn Fawn
Grassy Border Die. I also sponged the top of the grass with dark green ink to give it a little depth.

5) Stamp the pumpkin image from "Hey Gord-geous" in Gina K Amalgam Ink
and color in with various Copic Markers. I added Gina K Glitz Glitter Gel to
hat, eyes and mouth for a little sparkle. Die cut pumpkin with matching die.

6) Lastly tape the EZ Light battery pack to a piece of black cardstock measuring
5 1/2" x  4 1/4" and place foam tape all over panel avoiding battery pack.
I placed my battery pack on the bottom left of the card
and threaded the 3 lights up through the bottom right of the main panel. I adhered the
3 small lights to the back of the pumpkin behind the eyes and mouth. I placed my pumpkin on foam tape to leave room for the lights and then I adhered the main panel down to the black panel.
Press purple button on battery pack and prepare to be amazed!







** I added a small half circle over the battery pack and hand wrote
"push here" however there are stamp sets available that already have these sayings.
Here is one by Lawn Fawn:



This card was so much fun to make and the EZ lights make quick work of light up cards!
In no time you can have a fun interactive card that will amaze your recipient!

A Latte Love


Welcome back to my blog crafty friends.
It's my day on the Coffee Loving Cardmaker's blog again today and I have
another card for you full of caffeinated inspiration.
Today I am using the super cute BFF Owl stamp from Picket Fence Studios.
I just love that cute little Owl with her pearls around her neck and 
that sweet bow in her hair.



I recently ordered the Gracielle Designs Coffee Lovers Paper Pack from Unity Stamp Co
and I've been dying to use it.  I thought it made the perfect background for this card.
After I stamped and colored that precious owl with my Copic markers, I popped her up
on a Stitched Scalloped Rectangle die cut from Kat Scrappiness.  I inked the edges of the 
scalloped rectangle to really make it stand out against the patterned paper.
The sentiment is from the Hero Arts My Monthly Hero Kit from August 2018.
That kit is full of awesome coffee themed images and sentiments 
including dies to match.
It's on sale now over at Hero Arts! It even includes a cute little die for a coffee stand!
I added a sweet sheer blue blow to give my fancy owl a little something extra.



I hope you enjoyed my card for today and I hope you'll come back again soon 
to see what's brewing in Lisa's ICU!

Have a great day, I already am!
