Thankful Card with Hello Harvest and Gathered Wheat

I decided I needed to make some thankful cards, since Thanksgiving is almost here. I thought of having pumpkins with some stalks of wheat behind them.

When I saw Gathered Wheat, I knew I had to get it. My husband is from Kansas and he grew up on a wheat farm. His dad was a farmer, and my husband did a lot of farming too.

I colored the pumpkins using Pumpkin Pie ink on watercolor paper. You stamp, then use a Water Painter to spread the ink. I have a video showing that:

 

 

I did the same things with the wheat; I used Crumb Cake.

The background was made with Balmy Blue and Mossy Meadow with the Blending Brushes.

The sentiment is from the Gathered Wheat stamp set. I cut it with the Stylish Shapes dies.

A Dog & Cat Shaker Card!

 

I loved the North Pole Mischief stamp set when I first saw it. I decided to make a big shaker card with the dog and the cat stamp.

I stamped the stamp in the middle of the paper with Memento ink. I colored the cat with Smoky Slate, the dog with Crumb Cake, the ribbon with Sweet Sorbet and the box with Pool Party. All Blends markers.

The sentiment was stamped with Sweet Sorbet ink and then die cut with the Stitched Rectangles.

Here’s my video on how to make the big shaker cards- it’s pretty easy!

A Halloween Diorama Scene!

I had many ideas for this card, and wasted so much paper and other items until I figured this is what I wanted. You wouldn’t want to see a video of me making mistake after mistake. I got a little angry at one point! I finally gave up on my original idea and made this one. I like it!

I first made the background using the Blending Brushes with Gorgeous Grape and Pumpkin Pie. I die cut the house and bats with Basic Black paper and then added Wink of Stella on top to make them sparkly. I die cut the moon with the white glimmer paper.

I die cut the Black & White DSP with the Diorama dies. I laid it on top of the background paper and traced a line around so I would know where to put all the die cuts.

For the bottom border, I used black, grape and pumpkin with the Basic Borders dies.

The sentiment is from the Scary Cute stamp set.

Easy card! It would have taken me about 15 minutes if I hadn’t had a million other ideas first!

Three Dancing Witches!

Who doesn’t love dancing witches?

If you saw my dancing gnomes cards, the witches are made to dance the same way- with the Candy Cane die. Since their legs have a space between them, you have to cut the die cut a little more than you do with the gnomes. Here’s some pictures to show you:

Here’s the video of making the gnomes dance, remember to make the witch dance, just cut a few more pieces off.

 

 

I stamped the hats and punched them with the matching punch from the Bewitching bundle.

For the tree limbs on the upper corners, those are dies from the Scary Silhouettes dies.

For the sentiment, I used Best Witches and I colored it with Write Markers: Pumpkin Pie, Fresh Freesia, Granny Apple Green and Basic Black. I die cut it with a die from Scary Silhouettes.

These dancing cards are so fun!

Gnomes Dancing for a Birthday!

 

Gnomes don’t have to be used for just the holidays. This card I made during my video of how to make the gnomes dance:

 

Another easy card! I wanted to add something in the background like I did with the snowflakes on the original card. I decided to die cut a few small butterflies (from the Butterfly Wings dies.) I used the Daydream DSP (that you can only get with host rewards).

For the sentiment, I used the Art Gallery stamp set. I love the font of those sayings.

Glimmer Ornaments! LOTS of Glimmer!

OK, taking pictures of sparkly cards is hard. I think I’ve taken about 25 of them, so this was the best one. But it still doesn’t show how glittery it is. ugh.

If you saw my Yeti card using the Picture This dies, I wanted to use the part I didn’t use for that card. Lots of glimmer! Here’s the Yeti card:

Is It Christmas, Yeti?

I put the negative piece, from the Yeti card, on Basic White. I then die cut two of the Stitched Rectangles dies to make a frame using Tahitian Tide paper. I then used the Picture This die on scrap glimmer paper- just putting enough paper under the different circles. I used the Spruced Up Outlines dies with the White glimmer (from the mini) for the tops of the ornaments.

I added a few more ornaments on the card- ones that didn’t fit inside one of the empty circles.

I stamped the sentiment from Christmas Scottie on white with Tahitian Tide ink. I die cut it with the Stylish Shapes dies.

The ribbon on the side is the really pretty Metallic Woven Ribbon in the main catalog.

How to Make Those Gnomes DANCE! Video!

 

Who doesn’t love to see gnomes dancing??

 

I saw that SU had shared this technique at a recent event. What a great idea! I’ve used it on two different cards, this one and a witch one that I’ll share in a few days. It is really so easy and fun!

Here’s my video of making this card:

Perfect Partners: Pig on a Hill in a Bike!

 

I wanted to make my pig ride by on hill with water nearby. So, here’s what I came up with! 😂

I used lots of dies on this card. Obviously the Birthday Piggy dies (only 10 days left to get it!). I also used the Waterfall Canyon dies (again, only 10 more days) for the grass, the Basic Borders for the water, and the Gingerbread House for the hills.

I first used my Blending Brushes with Balmy Blue for the sky and Bermuda Bay for the water.

I added the Embossing paste on the water like I’ve done in many cards, but I also used the Paste for clouds. What I did was die cut two clouds from the Waves Dies, then used that a stencil with the Paste. ⬇️

 

These pigs are so dang cute! Here’s the video on how I make the ocean:

Perfect Partners: Apples for a Friend

I wanted to make a fancy card with the apples. I colored them with Daffodil, trying to make them look like yellow apples, but they kinda look like lemons! Either way works for a friend card.

 

The Fabulous Frames dies are one of my favorites. I’ve used it on many cards. For this one, I used it with the Glimmer paper that’s in the mini catalog. The paper is so pretty- three colors: Vanilla, Evening Evergreen and Gold. You could make some really fancy cards with this!

After I colored the apples and leaves, I put Wink of Stella on all them. A very sparkly card!
