Halloween card series -- Happy Owl-oween

I like this 2017 Stampin Up! Spooky Cat stamp set. It include a lot of thing. I got many ideas to create cards by using  this stamp set. Awesome and cute set! Also Guard Goodness stamp set is my this year favor too. You may already see I used it many times before.

I created today's card by sponging the lemon twist, pumpkin pie and elegant eggplant on the card. And splashed the water on it after completing sponging. I used the elegant eggplant to stamp mice and owl on the card.

I wanted to make owl that watchd the mice from high position. But I don't have the tree branch in my stash. So I decided to use a maple leaf. I used the liquid mask to cover the paw of owl. Then stamped the maple leaf by pumpkin pie. After moving the mask, owl looked like standing on the leaf stem.

I embossed the sentiment and glued the sequins on the card.

Fall harvest girl

Recently I just stamp and die cut to make my card. I thought I didn't make color long time. I missed it. So I decided to do watercolor today. Watercolor and sponging are my favorite way to create my card.

I chose the heavyweight watercolor paper to make today's card. I stamped the fence on the lower paper and used the green and blue to color the background sky and grass. After dry, I used the pierce rectangle die cut it.

I stamped garden girl on the other watercolor paper and colored it. I added the shimmer on her hair bows and dress( only yellow part). Then fuss cut her out.

I also stamp the pumpkin on the other card and fuss cut it too.

Back to background card, I stamped grass along the fence. and sentiment on the sky.

I taped the girl on the card. 3D dimensions on her upper body and glue on her lower body. So she looks standing there. The same as the pumpkin.

I added the green color under the girl and pumpkin.

Eat at your own risk

When I received this stamp set, I really wanted to use those cute lab bottles to make a simple card that may not typical Halloween style.  This's what I did today.

I stamped the bottles and covered them by post it note. Also I used mask tape covered the card of below bottles part. Then I sponged the light blue color around bottles.

I used the purple and green ink pad directly on the leftover photo paper. Dragged the ink pad and got the pretty result. Then I cut two pieces 1/4 strips. I glued them on the card below bottles to make a table feeling. Those strips were opposite directions.

Took off the mask paper from bottles and stamped the sentiment on the card. Glued a very cute pumpkin on the strips. Done! This is a one layer card.

Coffee, You & Me

Many years ago after drinking a cup of coffee, I couldn't fall to sleep and sometimes I felt my heart beat too fast. But I couldn't remember when I start to drink coffee everyday. Coffee become a part of my normal day life.

I decided to make a coffee card for my friend that we will have a coffee meet tomorrow. After searching of my stash, I found I only had this Elizabeth Craft Designs Coffee stamps and  dies on my hand. I should plan to buy more coffee theme stamps and dies.

I die cut the cup, air and spoon. Spoon I used the silver shimmer card. I sponged the very light pink color around the cup. and added the silver line on the cup and stamped the sentiment.

I stamped the maple leaves and the coffee beans on the cardbase. Leaves is layering stamp.

I used the 3D foam to stick the cup on the cardbase. 

I enter this card to  the Coffee Loving Cardmakers has 2017 fall coffee lovers blog hop! #fall2017clh

Halloween card series 3

After a busy weekend, I am back for the Halloween card series. Making Halloween card is so fun. I like this Yvonne Creations ghost and pumpkin dies. They are so so cute.

I also used the 2016 Stampin Up! Halloween Scenes die for fence and bat. Sentiment from the this year new holiday catalog Spooky cat stamp.

I die cut the house first. I colored the house by Stampin Up! ink pad smoke slate and basic grey. And I glued the yellow post-it note on the behind of windows and door.

I sponged the card by elegant eggplant and pumpkin pie. Then put the house back to the same position. I embossed the sentiment under the fence.

I chose the Halloween washi tape for two side of  the cardbase.  I also used the 3D foam to stick fence on the bottom of card. Then glued the ghost that I add two Nuvo deep navy drops on the ghost eyes, pumpkin and bat on the card.

Finally I stamped the tiny dots on the sky.

Autumn is here

Texas's autumn is always late. But since entering September,  I can feel autumn's hint.  It's starting cool in the morning, even it's still hot and strong sunshine in the afternoon.

At this moment I just want to leave my Halloween cards series behind and make one autumn card. I grabbed leftover square white cardstock and used the mask tape covered top and bottom of card. I tore the copy paper by hand to make mountains shade. Covered it on the card and sponged the dark purple color to get the far mountains. Repeated it for more layers mountains.

Sponging sky was from top to bottom by yellow and very light pink color. Then I stamped two leaves on the other cardstock by directly using Tombow markers on the stamp. It's two layers stamp. I fussy cut out the leaves.

I also used leftover square frames. I layered three pieces and used foam tape to glue on the cards. After glued it on the cardbase, I used glue dots to stick the leaves on the left corner of frame and added the bow on it.

That's my today's card. Thank you for watching!

Supplies that I used:

Cardbase and frame are from my stash. I thought I bought it from Walmart from very beginning for making card. It's a little grey tone white texture cardstock. Not sturdy enough.

I sat in the backyard looking around green grass, blue sky and listening bird song. At this moment everything was calm down. It let me believe life is so beautiful and bright. All darkness was gone. 

What's I want to make today? I have no idea. I just randomly grabbed my Color Brusho powder. I tapped it on the watercolor paper and sprayed water on it. I watched the color spread out front me. You don't what's you will get, but it's so beautiful. I left it on the table and drank my tea. 

Sunshine was getting stronger, birds were hiding to shaded place. I am thought it's time to get inside. 
After getting back inside, the card was dry. I added hot glue on it to make 3D dimension. I cut two frames from MFT rectangle frame die. Before I glued frames on the card, I added some blue and red color on the card. 

"believe" die from Ellen Hudson. It matched my feeling.
