Where is the candy? - Larissa


Hi everyone, I am Larissa from Car-d-elicious and today I am posting a halloween card. :)


I made a card with the stampset Where is the candy from Gerda Steiner designs. I stamped the funny dog and then I coloured it with my Polychromos pencils and the black glaze pen and then I fussy cut the image. I stamped the sentiment on white cardstock and added faux stitching lines above and belowe the image. I have cut the strip with the sentiment and then I adhered it on a purple card. I adhered the image with foamtape on the card. I also added faux stitching on the card. Then I stamped stars in a couple of sizes from the stampset Big greetings from Avery elle on the card. With the banner punch from Stampin up I punched a little banner from white cardstock and I stamped another 3 stars on it. I added a staple with the Tiny attacher and then I adhered the banner on the card.

Guest Designer - Some 'Beary' Easy Inktense Watercoloring!

Hi, it's Therese from www.lostinpaper.com and I am very excited to share a fun card and video with you here today.
More Than Pie has the most wonderful bear images and I decided to use my Inktense pencils to do some very easy watercoloring today.



I was able to 'ombre' the sentiment very easily using the MISTI, and you can see the whole card process shared in the video link below.



You can see my video here or Watch it in HD at Youtube.


I'm sure you think these bears from More Thank Pie are as cute as I do!  Thanks so much for stopping by today, I have another card and video coming up real soon and I can't wait to see you here then!

Where is the Candy | Distress Background | Scrapbena Creations

Hello, it is Jenn from Scrapbena Creations on YouTube. I am back with another card as a Guest Designer. This time I am using the adorable too cute to spook stamp set from Gerda Steiner Designs called Where is the Candy. I chose the cat and dog in costumes images for this scene card. The fence and bats were from a My Favourite Things stamp set called Frightful Friends, but you can use whatever you have in your stash!


My watercolour paper of choice is Canson XL watercolour paper because it is high quality and affordable. I stamped out the images with Versafine Black Onyx ink and created masks to make an outdoor Halloween scene. The moon was created using a circle punch with full adhesive post-it note paper, which I used for all of the masks. Once everything was masked, I used Distress Inks to create the background. I love purples for Halloween night scenes. From lightest to darkest, I used shaded lilac, wilted violet, seedless preserves and black soot. For the ground, I used bundled sage with a tiny bit of black soot. I spritzed some water over the entire scene with the masks still on the images and blotted it with a paper towel for an amazing textured background.


I watercoloured the images with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I list the colours used in my process video, which you can watch by clicking the play button on the image below.




Thanks for stopping by the blog today. I hope you enjoyed this card and it inspires you to make some cute Halloween cards. Happy crafting.
