A Bit Batty

Sunday Stampers: Sketch
CAS Colours & Sketches: Sketch
Sweet Stampin: Distressed

My aunt loves Halloween, even more than Christmas. Each year I make her an original card to celebrate. Found this digi of the bat in the tree and created the scene to go with it. Masked the moon and sponged sky with yellow, goldenrod and three shades of gray. Stamped different sizes of stars in different grays and black. Stamped bottom limb in black. Splattered white and dotted edge of ink pad in black. Made the sentiment up and created on Silhouette. Eyes got some glossy accents. Distressed edges with sharp scissors. Mounted on black layer then white cs base.

Odd designer paper

Make My Monday: Colour
Global Design: CASE the Designer

There was this interesting 12×12 sheet of designer paper. It has strips of colors and designs within the single page. I cut the strips and used three that matched the color challenge at Make My Monday. The center flowers were fussy cut and glue added to affix glitter. Cut the tag by hand and heat embossed sentiment in white. Doily was cut on silhouette . Some of the edges were swiped with brown ink pad and rhinestones added to doily for details. The arrangement fits the CASE the Designer over at Global Design, too.

Tall & Skinny

The Paper Players: Tall & Skinny

OK, so maybe not as tall or skinny but definitely not A2 size. The die cut was purchased to make this years holiday greetings for all our families and friends. The rest of the design involves: Heat embossed sentiment on black cs that was then sprayed with sparkle. Once the die was added and all was attached to white cs base I some red Nuvo for berries. Now only 99 more to go.

Global Design: Bloom & Grow
The Diva’s: Free Fun Time

My stencil of the month club sent me this beauty to play with. I smooched the terracotta and yellow pads right on the stencil and spritzed with water then placed copy paper on top and pressed. Once removed and dried I sponged the turquoise through the stencil. Trimmed the bg to fit on top of a colored layer. Tag and the sentiments were cut on Silhouette. The top sentiment was cut with sticker paper in reverse such that when the backing paper was removed I could add glitter then glue it offset on the yellow one.

The DIva’s challenge is to showcase what I do in my Free Fun Time. Be amazing at my craft table is my response to that concept. And the other challenge for Global Design wanted Blooms which is what is in the stencil design


The Paper Players: Metal

The product used to create the bg is called Liquid Metal but not the true metal look I was hoping for. This was my first time using it. The liquid was mixed in some white gesso and spread on a stencil, then I placed white layering weight cs on top and pressed. Fussy cut one edge and trimmed to fit the white base. The sentiment was cut on Silhouette and paint brush with Liquid Metal. Once dry, the words were heat embossed twice with clear then glued on. To try and get the look of welding slag, I splattered silver acrylic paint and painted the center of some of the gears.
