Hello everyone!! Laurie here from It's All Cut and Die to share a Halloween card with you!!  I don't make a lot of Halloween cards so they can be a challenge.  But here it goes!!!

I have completely fallen in love with ALL the dies from Studio Katia.  They are all truly unique! But what I love the most is the size of these creative dies!! They are huge! Which really appeals to me because I enjoy making shaped cards.  And because these dies have such great shapes and dimension to them, it makes it super easy!!

I decided to use Stitched Nested Creative Rectangles. I used the largest one in the set to create my cardbase and the smaller one for my image and sentiment.  I used ivory cardstock for the base and black cardstock for the panel.

To liven up the black background, I used some Distress Paint in Picket Fence to create a splattered effect.  I felt that I needed one more Halloween color on my card so I adhered the small stitched rectangle onto some orange cardstock and just trimmed around it with my scissors to create a small mat.

I used the super cute Spooky Duo Talk Stamp Set for my sentiment which I heat embossed in white.  I added my spider and moon image with some foam adhesive and adhered the orange and black panel directly to my base.  And of course no card of mine is complete without Glossy Accents, so I added some to the spider and the moon!!  And to finish it off, I just had to add some sequins from the Classic Halloween Sequins Fusion!!!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!!  And I truly hope that you stop by Studio Katia to have a look at these amazing products!!

Hi everyone!!  I wanted to pop in to share a card. I had so much fun with this!!

I have been LOVING everything Waffle Flower lately!!  And I got my hands on some of their latest release!  I wanted to show you how I combined two different sets to create, what I think, is a pretty cool card :)

I started by using my Mini Mist to layout my sentiments.

The first part of the sentiment comes from the set First Step and the second part of the sentiment comes from Purse-nality. I thought they worked so well together!  Before I inked up the stamps, I had to do a little masking.

Next, I stamped the three purses in Bubblegum Pink, Ultra Pink and Raspberry Jam.  These colors, along with Soft Pink come in May's Shades of Pink Ink cubes from Hero Arts.

Before adhering the purses to the card base, I decided to take a fine liner pen and freehand some lines.   Which is one of my favourite techniques to fill white space.

I also had a scalloped frame in my "leftovers" stash so I decided to use it around the sentiment.  I adhered the purses with a combination of liquid glue and foam adhesive.

And as you can see, I added some pearl accents to the purse closures. As well as some Stardust Glitter Pen and Glossy Accents.  And to top it off, black enamel dots!!  I hope you like this card and I thank you for stopping by!!

Until next time.....
