Let's get to my Projects for today!! 
My first Project uses the NEW Destination Christmas Stamp Set!! I just LOVE these Little Vehicles all decked out with Holiday Cheer!! I Started by Stamping and Embossing the NEW Image and I used Copic Markers to Color it in!! 
Truck: R14, R37 & R39   E33, E37 & E39   BG0000 & BG10   N3, N5 & N8   Y11 & YR23  Tree: YG61, YG63 & G19  Presents: N0 & N2  V1 & V06   R81 & R83  BG45 & BG49 
Then I used the NEW coordinating Destination Dies to Die Cut it out!! 
For the Scene Background I Die Cut the Circle from the Circle Frames Die Set then I Masked my Ground using some Purple Tape and inked with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink for the Sky and added some Water Splatters for the look of Snow falling, then I moved the mask to mask off the sky and added some Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink for the Ground!! Then I used the Mountain Stencil to create a Mountain Range using Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide Ink!! 
I wanted a REALLY FUN SNOWY look to the tops of the Mountains so I Inked with some SSS White Pigment Ink and then applied some WoW Embossing Powder in White Puff Twinkle!! I repeated this process twice just so I had a thick coating and I LOVE the way it turned out!! I'll DEFINETLY be using this Powder MORE for all of my Dimensional Snowy needs!! SWOON!!
I Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment on the top of the Circle and then I added some Shading for under the Truck using N1 & N2 Copic Markers along with the Colorless Blender and I really like the dimension it adds to the overall scene!! I added some White Gel Pen Details and some Nuvo Morning Dew Drops to the Window and the Hub Caps on the Truck for some Dimension and Shine!! 
For the Card Panel I Stenciled with the NEW Tiny Trees Stencil onto Kraft Cardstock using some SSS White Pigment Ink!! I added some Picket Fence and Black Soot Distress Paint Splatters for some more texture!! Then I added it to a Cherry Pop Frames and Flags Scalloped Rectangle Frame and adhered it to a white Cardbase using some Fun Foam!! I LOVE the way it turned out!! 
For my next Project I've used the NEW Christmas Camper Stamp Set!! SQUEAL!! This set is just SO SWEET!! I Stamped and Embossed the Image using Versa Fine Black Onyx Ink and WoW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder!! Then I used Copic Markers to color it in!! 
Camper: N0, N3 & N5  Tree & Wreath: YG61, YG63 & G19  Bows: R81, R83 & RV34   Windows: BG0000, BG10 & BG13   Door: BG13, BG45 & BG49 
I Die Cut the Image out using the NEW coordinating Christmas Camper Die Set!! Then I added some White Gel Pen Highlights and some Nuvo Morning Dew Drops to the Ribbons and Bows for some Dimension and Shine!! For the Tag Base I Die Cut the Fancy Edges Tag Die Set!! I Masked the Ground with some Purple Tape and Inked with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink and added some Water Splatters!! Then I added both Picket Fence and Black Soot Distress Paint Splatters for some Texture!! I removed the mask and masked the Sky to add some Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide Ink to the Ground!! Then I used Copic Markers in N1 & N2 along with my Colorless Blender to create some Shading!! I added it to a Gift Bag and added a Paper Sweeties Bubble Gum Seam Binding Ribbon Bow, some Felt Holly Leaves and a Large Jingle Bell!! I LOVE how it turned out!! 
For my last Project today I'm using the NEW Reindeer Stencil!! I Sprayed the back of my Stencil with Pixie Spray and applied it to my Card Panel!! Then I Inked with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink and Embossed with WoW Embossing Pearl Gold Sparkle Glitter Embossing Powder!! SWOON!! This is one of my FAVORITE Colors especially for the Holidays!! 
Once heat Set I added some Tumble Glass Distress Oxide Ink Splatters and some Black Soot Distress Paint Splatters!! I Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment from the Ornamental Wishes Stamp Set onto a Circle Die Cut that I inked with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink and added some Water Splatters!! I Stamped with Versa Fine Black Onyx Ink and WoW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder!! Then I added some WoW Embossing Pearl Gold Sparkle Glitter Embossing Powder to the center of the Snowflakes!! 
I added the panel to a Kraft Frames and Flags Scalloped Rectangle Frame that I inked the edges of with some Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink to help it POP off the White Cardbase!! I adhered it to the White Cardbase using some Fun Foam!! I LOVE the way it turned out!!

Glow-in-the-Dark Batty Boo Card with Newton's Nook Designs!!

Pin It
HELLO CRAFTY FRIENDS!! 
I'm up on the Newton's Nook Blog today sharing a really FUN Glow-in-the-Dark Card with you today!! 
Halloween in closing in FAST and I've been playing around with the Process to find the BEST results, and I've finally found a way to create a BIG WOW Factor!! 
I LOVE how this turned out and I can't wait to share how I've created it!! Let's get to it!! 
I LOVE trying NEW Techniques and I created this FUN Background using Distress Oxide Inks on a Back Card Panel using the NEW Spiderweb Stencil!! You can find ALL of the Details HERE!! I don't like to WASTE all of that Ink on my Stencils, so I placed it over a SSS Fog Cardstock Card Panel and Applied some Therm O Web Deco Foil Duo Gel using a Stencil Pal!! The Ink will mix with the Gel and fill in the NEW Spiderweb Stencil Design and instead of Drying Clear like it normally does it'll dry with a BEAUTIFUL Color to it, which when used on its on makes a STUNNING Background with TONS of texture!! SWOON!! 
The MAGIC Happens when you apply the WoW Glow-in-the-Dark Embossing Powder right to the Wet Get!! Apply the Powder over the Wet Gel and then remove the excess Powder carefully just by holding it upright over a piece of copy paper so you can collect all of the excess Powder to put back into your Jar!! Then set the Panel aside to Dry completely!! Once it's dry use you Heat Tool to heat set the Powder!! This is what the Panel will look like once you've heat set the Powder!! 
I Stamped and Embossed the NEW Batty Newton Image and colored it in using Copic Markers!! Batty Newton: N0, N2, N4, N6 & N8    CheeksR11  Then I Die Cut it out using the coordinating NEW Batty Newton Die Set!! I Stamped and Embossed the Bat Images also from the Set in Black Onyx Ink and Embossed with WoW Neutral Ultra Shimmer Embossing Powder!! Then I Die Cut them out!! I also Stamped and Embossed the Boo Sentiment Bubble from the Boo Hoo Stamp Set!! I Stamped with Vera Fine Black Onyx Ink and Embossed with the WoW Glow-in-the-Dark Embossing Powder so it would Glow too!! EEEKKK!! I just LOVE making interactive Halloween Cards!! I Die Cut it out using the coordinating Boo Hoo Dies!! 
I adhered the Stenciled Card Panel onto a SSS Black Cardstock Scalloped rectangle Die Cut from the Frames & Flags Die Set!! Then I adhered it to my White Cardbase using some Fun Foam!!  I adhered the Batty Newton Image using some Gina K Designs Foam Squares only applying them to the center so I could fold up the Wings to make him really appear to by Flying!! I adheres the other Bats with Ultra Bond Adhesive just to the center of their Bodies, again so I could pop up their wings to make them appear to be flying!! Then I added an Iridescent Black Pearl from Studio Katia to the center of them for some Sparkle!! 
 I also created a coordinating Envelope using a TE Lavender Glaze Envelope and Inking the NEW Spiderweb Stencil in Black Soot Distress Ink!! I also added some Picket Fence Distress Splatters and I LOVE the way this set turned out!!
Here's the Design GLOWING in the Dark!! How AWESOME is that!!?? You should of seen me as I SQUEALED in EXCITMENT with how AWESOME and BLOD it turned out!! My BOYS LOVE too!! Infact it's in Greyson's Room on his Self so he can look at it ever night as he drifts off to sleep!! He called it his Halloween Decoration!! πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’š

THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by today and I hope I've INSPIRED you to create some Stenciled and Glow-in-the-Dark Backgrounds for your Halloween Cards!! TRUST me the Recipients will LOVE them!! 
Have a FABULOUS WEEKEND!!

CAS-ual Fridays Stamps September Release ~ Birthday Fri-Dies!!

Pin It
HELLO CRAFTY FRIENDS!! 
I'm here with Day 4 of the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps September Release!! 
Today we're showcasing the NEW Birthday Fri-Dies!! 
Here's a close up look of the NEW Set!! 
How BEAUTIFUL is this Card!!?? I LOVE the Eclipse Technique!! If you've never tried it, I hope this Card will change your mind and make you give it a try TODAY!!?? 
I Started by Coloring a Therm O Web and Unity Stamp Toner Card Front using Copic Markers!! 
Here's what the Card Front looks like after I've colored it with Copic Markers!! 
Next I cut a Piece of Therm O Web NEW Prince Periwinkle Deco Foil large enough to cover the Card Front and placed it Color Side Up and ran it through my Laminating Machine!! After removing it from the Laminating Machine I removed the Negative Foil Film!! SWOON!! I LOVE the results!! TIP: Save that Negative Piece of Deco Foil and You can used it to create another Card!! Stay tuned to the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Blog and I'll show you what you can create with it!! 
NO WASTE!! πŸ˜‰
Once the Panel was Foiled then I Die Cut it down using a Stitched Rectangle Die and then I Die Cut the Happy Birthday Die from the Top 1/3 of the Card Panel!! TIP: when dealing with SMALL Pieces for this Technique I like to use a piece of Therm O Web Purple Tape in order to keep ALL of the Small Pieces together as to not loose anything!! 

Next I Die Cut 5 more Happy Birthday Images from some Black Cardstock!! I adhered all of them together using some Ultra Bond Adhesive and then adhered the Die Cut Foiled Pieces on top!! Then I adhered them into the openings that were created on to the Card Panel!! I let everything Dry and then I Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment from the NEW Everyday Dragonflies Stamp Set!! 
I added some Black Soot and Picket Fence Distress Paint Splatters and then I adhered the Panel to a NND Scalloped Rectangle Die Cut from some Purple Cardstock and adhered it to a White Cardbase!! Then I paired it with a TE Lavender Glaze Envelope!! 
I LOVE the way this looks in real life as the Shine of the Deco Foil really does make the Eclipse Design POP off the Card Front!! Makes you look at and wonder HOW DID THEY DO THAT!!?? Which makes me SMILE!! I LOVE for the recipients of my Cards to KNOW that they are getting something SPECIAL that was made just for them!! I hope I've INSPIRED you to give this Eclipse Technique a Try!!??
