Happy Halloween

Hello crafty friends.

Are you all ready for Halloween? Our house is decorated and we have lots of sweets ready!

I made this card too using some Pretty pink posh stamps and card from Papermilldirect .

I ink blended some white card to make a night sky and added some stars. I then used the Uniquely creative eucalyptus forest die and die cut this using some Papermilldirect plain black card.

I copic coloured the stamps. I then heat embossed the sentiment onto some Violet plain card and adhered to my card.

Have a spooktacular Halloween!

A sweet Halloween card

Hello friends!

I have made a very sweet card using the Mommy Lhey Kawaii Halloween digital kit. I used the digital stamps and coloured them in with my markers.

The background is made using inks that I blended together. I also heat embossed the sentiment. I love how bright the background is and the images always make me smile they are just adorable.

Ghostly greetings

Hello crafty friends.

I have another Halloween card for you today that I’m sharing on the papermilldirect blog.

I love making fun cards and this Halloween card is great for kids to make too. 

For this card I used:

You will also need:

Halloween Stamps (My Favorite Things)

  • Copic Markers
  • Circle Die
  • Acetate
  • Sequins
  • White embossing powder
  • Versamark Ink
  • Heat Gun

To make the card base I trimmed down a piece of Black Plain Card 240gsm to 4 1/8″ x 5 7/8″. I then trimmed down a piece of White Card Super Smooth 250gsm smaller than the card base and adhered this inside the card so that you can write your greeting inside. 

Using some more White Card Super Smooth 250gsm stamp all your Halloween images onto the card. I used Copic markers to colour them in but feel free to use other markers. Once this is complete trim them out and place aside.

Next using a piece of Black Plain Card 240gsmtrim this down to the same size as your card front and place a circle die in the middle. Run this through your die cutting machine. Turn this over and adhere acetate to the back. Next add foam tape all around the edges of the circle and to the back of the card. Fill up the center with sequins and gems. Once this is done add your card base over the top of this. Your shaker part is now complete.

Next I heat embossed the sentiment onto some Violet Plain Card 290gsm and heat set this with my heat gun. Trim down and adhere to your card.

Lastly add all your Halloween images onto the card.

Your Halloween shaker is now complete!

Thanks for stopping by today have a lovely evening.

Interactive Halloween card

Good morning crafty friends.

I have another cute Halloween card for you today and it’s a interactive card. The card is flat and you just pull the tag which transforms the card into a 3D card. You can even write your message on the “pull tag”. How fun!

For this card you will need:

Spellbinders June large die of the month

Mommy Lhey PeekABoo kit

Papermilldirect White Card super smooth

To start with I die cut the interactive die using plain white card. I then die cut it again onto spotty paper. Adhere the two pieces together around the edges so that the moving tag doesn’t get stuck otherwise your card won’t “pull”.

Once this is done decorate the card front using some images from the PeekABoo kit.

As you pull the tag up the middle of the card will make a fold like an easel card. I then decorated the the tag and lower part of the card.

This is why I used two pieces of card so that the part that’s hidden once pulled will reveal a message.

I love how this turned out and what’s even better is that it folds down completely flat so that it will fit in a standard size envelope.

I can’t wait to make some more interactive cards. I had so much fun making this.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Holly jolly Christmas and a bonus Halloween card

Good morning.

Happy Halloween!!! I am on the papermilldirect blog today with this Christmas card tutorial.

I am making this fun shaker card today and I am really enjoying the new Sirio Colour Card which is what I used for my card base as its a beautiful blue and I immediately knew it would be great for a Christmas card.

The products I used are:

I also used:

  • Christmas stamps
  • Copic markers
  • Memento ink
  • Acetate
  • Window die
  • Sequins
  • Ribbon
  • Beads

Jolly

For my card base I used a piece of Blu Sirio Colour Card 290gsm which I cut down to 4 1/4 inches and scored at 5 1/2 inches. I folded this at the crease for my card base.

I then stamped all my images and the greeting onto some White Card Super Smooth 300gsmand coloured them in with my copic markers. I then cut all these out and placed them aside for later.

I then die cut the window die using some White Card Super Smooth 300gsm and adhered this down onto the acetate using some Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml. I set this aside to dry and I then cut down a piece of Marine Blue Smooth 240gsm. Once the window die is dry I added Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm all around the edges and placed the sequins inside. I then adhered down the Marine Blue Smooth 240gsmpanel onto the shaker panel and adhered this onto my card base using some Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.

After this step all my images and greeting were adhered down using some more Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.

I added some ribbon at the top and to finish the card off I adhered down some extra sequins and gems using Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml.

I hope you give this shaker card a try and be sure to have a look at Papermilldirect’s new Sirio colour card its amazing!

So as it’s Halloween it would be rude not to share a card with you.

Enjoy your day!

Cute Halloween card

Good morning!

I am today on the Papermilldirect blog with this tutorial:

I absolutely love making Halloween cards and I think this would be a fun card to make for little children.

To make this card I used:

You will also need:

  • White pigment ink and a sponge
  • Oval die
  • Alphabet die
  • Die cutting machine
  • Glitter
  • Black and gold enamel dots
  • Google eyes

Pmd8

To make my card base I used a piece of Black Plain Card 250gsm which I trimmed down, scored and folded in half. I then used a piece of Dark Violet Plain Card 240gsm added some pigment ink to the middle and adhered this down onto my card front. I then cut down another piece of Black Plain Card 250gsm and run this through my die cutting machine using a oval die. I adhered this to my card using some Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm. I then added an insert inside my card using some White Card Super Smooth 300gsm so that you can write inside.

I then die cut some ghosts and drew a smiley face and added the google eyes using some Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml, I then adhered these onto the card with some Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.

For the boo greeting I die cut the words using White Card Super Smooth 300gsm three times and glued them together using some Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml. I then added some PVA glue to the top layer and added some glitter. Once dry I adhered this onto my card using some more Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml.

To finish off the card I added some enamel dots.

I had lots of fun creating this card and I think the ghosts are too cute to spook young children.
