Hello peeps! How is your weekend going so far? Mine is going well! I was in Manhattan most of the day yesterday and despite it being dreary and rainy I had a nice time seeing my friend Isabella! After I took the subway down to the Ink Pad and made a new friend. Michael is another crafty person and I had a nice chat with him. Hopefully I will see him again soon! After I came home I made a card, I had to it was World Card Making Day after all! Did you get to make a card or two yesterday?!
Sometimes Sunday’s mean it’s time for another Creation Station Blog Tour! Today is one of those Sundays! This time around we are doing a Harvest theme focusing on the Fall Fest Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Tiny Treat Boxes. If you are following the tour then you have arrived here from the very talented Jennifer Downey’s Blog. I have three projects for you today, two cards and a little box. Lets get to them shall we?!
My first card uses the night sky technique that I did a little while ago. I really loved the way it looked and had to do it again! The base of the card is Night of Navy Card Stock. I used a piece of Watercolor Paper and the Tim Holtz Mini Ink Blending Tool with some Daffodil Delight first to create the moon. I then took some Post-it Tape and used the 1 1/4″ Punch to punch out a piece to mask over the moon.
Night of Navy and Blackberry Bliss are used to create the rest of the sky. The stars are Perfect Pearls mixed with a little water and dotted on with a paintbrush.
To make my ghost I took my Smoky Slate Stampin’ Write Marker and colored around just the edge of the ghost stamp and stamped it on some more Watercolor Paper.
I then used a paintbrush and water to pull the ink into the middle of the ghost.
A quick trip through the Big Shot with the Fun Fall Framelits and some black eyes that are punched out with the 1/8″ Circle Punch and he’s ready to go on the card.
But first I heat embossed one of the greetings from the September Paper Pumpkin Kit in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. A simple mailable card that uses two fun techniques!
Next up is another neat card. The base of this one is Basic Black Card Stock and the background is a piece of paper from the Motley Monsters Designer Series Paper Pack. The panel is Sahara Sand and I used the Project Life Corner Rounder to round the corners. My partial circle is cut out with the Circles Collection Framelits. The greeting is from the For All Things Stamp Set and is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. For a little extra detail I used the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack to pierce all around the edges before adhering the panel to the base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The pumpkin and leaves are all from the Fall Fest Photopolymer Stamp Set and are stamped in Tangerine Tango, Crushed Curry and Pear Pizzaz. I cut them out with the Fun Fall Framelits and adhered the to the card with more Stampin’ Dimensionals. Another simple card but I love the piercing detail and the circle cut out!
My last project is a box that I made using the Tiny Treat Boxes. They are 25 in a pack for $6.95! How can you go wrong?! To make my box I first separated it at the seam by prying the two pieces apart. I did this so I could cut out the pumpkins using the Fun Fall Framelits from the opposite sides of the box.
I then took some Vellum Card Stock and glued it to the inside of the box before using some Sticky Strip to adhere it back together. The embellishment on the top of the box is a piece of 1 1/4″ Burlap Ribbon that I trimmed the sides off of and pulled some threads out. I adhered it to the box top with some more Sticky Strip. Next up is some of the Tangelo Twist Sequin Trim from the September Paper Pumpkin Kit adhered with some Glue Dots. My pumpkin is from the Fall Fest Set and is cut out with the Fun Fall Framelits. I cut out one of the leaves stamped in Pear Pizzaz and used one of the Autumn Wooden Elements along with some of the black twine from the Paper Pumpkin Kit. A Stampin’ Dimensionals holds it in place. Again, I have forgotten to pick up some of the tea lights! When I do get some I will take pictures of the place card holder and this box! LOL! I love all of the elements and simplicity of the box!
And there you have my three projects for the Creation Station Blog Tour for our Fall Fest theme. I really hope that you enjoyed the projects and are inspired to make some of your own. Now continuing on with the tour your next stop is our fearless leader Jen Arkfeld. She’s a clever one isn’t she?! Thank you for coming by to see my projects!
