FaBOOlous!

This sweet little witch is perfect flying through a night sky. I knew I had to have her and the coordinating dies from Close to my Heart! The background was originally created on YouTube for a Northern Lights themed card. However, it works perfectly for Halloween!

How To Make It!

This card came together fast because I had the background done! You can see how to create your own sky or galaxy background here:

I wanted to replicate the moon and have a sentiment on the card, but knew there was not enough room. I combined the two on a yellow flat cardstock that I die cut into a circle. To keep it Halloween and sweet I opted for Purple Crush ink for the sentiment. I used pop dots on the witch and added a few Glitter Drops by Tonic in Purple rain o finish it off!

Until next time ~ Happy Crafting!

How to Create a Galaxy Background

Have you seen the latest thing in arts and crafts? It is all about galaxy art! I have always wondered how these were done and thought they must be hard to create. I am happy to share creating a galaxy background is easy to do with Color Burst Galaxy collection by Ken Oliver. Rita Barakat has a line of die cuts that paired perfectly with a galaxy theme. They are truly out of this world!

Please hop along with the Rita Barakat designers to see what they did with Colorburst! The list is at the end of the post!

Deepest Sympathies

Probably the least favorite thing for me to make is a Sympathy card, but they are the most meaningful to the recipient. During times of loss a hand made card can warm the heart like nothing else. Since death is often no predictable it is best to make a few to have on hand. I used the Hedgehog Hollow September 2018 to create a Deepest Sympathy card.

 I stamped the flowers with Catherine Pooler’s Coral Cabana ink pad. I stamped the stems and sentiment with a black detailed ink. Using the Marvy Uchida brush tip pens I colored in the flowers and stems.

 I sprinkled Color Burst on a piece of white cardstock and misted with gold glimmer mist. Once it dried I used an oval die cut to trim it out and inked the edges.

I pop dotted the flowers and sentiment over the stems I adhered with a liquid adhesive. To finish if off I added a few pearls.

I find it easier to create these cards with no specific person in mind. If I am creating a sympathy card for a loved one I tend to break down and unable to complete it. By working on several sympathy cards at a time it makes it easier.

Until next time ~ Happy Crafting!

Warm Cozy Wishes

I splattered Colorburst on a Kraft card base to start this perfect card for the coffee fall lover! The little coffee is from the Cozy Coffee Stamp Set. I colored it in with Studio 71 colored pencils and cut it out. I layered two pieces of washi tape and then sentiment on top. I used pop dots on the coffee and finished it off with some gorgeous scarlet colored gems.
The stamp set and Colorbrust can be found in the Brutus Monroe Shop

Life is Short and the World is Wide

My new obsession is Ken Oliver’s Colorburst for Brutus Monroe. I used it to create the backdrop for the sweet little campers and sentiment for this card. I stamped three of the five trailers from the Road trip Brutus Monroe Stamp set, colored them in with Style-file markers, and cut them out on my Brother’s Scan N Cut. I layered my colorburst piece on white card stock and adhered to a black card base. I used pop dots to adhere the trailers. I stamped the sentiment with surface ink and layered it on a small colorburst strip. I finished it off with little acrylic bubbles.
