Peek-a-Boo Pumpkins

Hi Everyone

I have another CAS Halloween card to share with you all today, and this one uses the new release stamp and matching die set by Taylored Expressions called Peek-a-boo Pumpkins.

Boo Pumpkin Card

This was super simple to create and I started off by inking up with polka dot pumpkin with some Mango dye ink by Hero Arts as well as some Forever Green mid-tone shadow ink for the stem, before stamping them twice onto my card base, leaving a small gap between the two.

On a separate piece of cardstock I stamped one of the smaller plain pumpkins (which I inked up the same way as the polka dot ones), then stamped one of the fun pumpkin faces onto it using plain black ink. After die cutting it out I then stuck the spooky pumpkin in between the polka dot pumpkins using some adhesive foam. Lastly, I then stamped my sentiment below the pumpkins.

I also created a non-halloween themed card using this cute set, so keep a look out for that card, coming very soon.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.

Happy Meow-lloween!

Hi There

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend? I managed to grab a bit of crafty time over the weekend, and for some reason I felt like getting into the Halloween spirit, so I created a few fun and spooky cards to share with you all over the next couple of days.

For today’s card I used the super cute Halloween Trio Die Set by Top Dog Dies. I’ve been meaning to use this set now for a while, so with Halloween just around the corner, I thought it was the perfect time to put it to use.

Halloween Kitty Card

I used some Rustic White cardstock by Papertrey Ink for my card base, as it gives the card a bit more of a aged look. I stamped my sentiment onto my card base before sticking my die cut cat to the card using adhesive foam. I really love all the little cut and emboss details in the TDD dies. It just adds that extra bit of cuteness! To finish off the card I then glued on some Halloween coloured sequins around the kitty.

I had heaps of fun creating with this die set, so keep checking back for more projects I’ve created with it, coming up within the next week or so.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Top Dog Dies – Birthday Borders Card

Hello Everyone!

Happy Friday! It’s my day on the Top Dog Dies blog today, and I’m sharing a card created using the new Borders #1 Die Set together with the Cupcake Die Set.

I don’t know about you, but I always seem to struggle when trying to put border dies to good use, but with this fun new set I knew I wanted to make them a focal point of my card rather than just a border.

Birthday Borders Cupcake Card

So I decided to use these borders to create a fun background for a birthday card. Creating the background was really easy. I started off with a panel of cardstock the same size as my card base and angled the dies across it then die cut it. Then like a puzzle I glued the die cut pieces back together on my card base.

Next I created a cute cupcake using the Cupcake Die Set to add to my card. I then stamped my sentiment on to my card in silver ink and added some fun adhesive embellishments.

I hope this inspires you to create something fun using your border dies in a new way.

Thanks for joining me today and have a great weekend!
