This card would be perfect to send to a girlfriend for a fun spa day or just to say hi. Using a craft knife I cut the powder, shampoos and purse images from the patterned paper and attached them to the card front using pop dots. I like the dimension and added interest you get when using pop dots. I then accented the flowers and red scallop using Diamond Stickles.
The images on this patterned paper reminded me of a plaque that hung in my grandmother’s kitchen. It said, “A man works from sun to sun but a woman’s work is never done.” I am going to print this sentiment, cut it into journaling strips and attach the strips inside the card. I have just the friend to send this to and I think she will certainly agree with the sentiment. I cut the lady with the vacuum out using a craft knife and attached her using pop dots. I then accented the roses and the ladies aprons using Diamond Stickles. I guess by now you have pretty much figured out I use Stickles on most everything I create.
Spooky Treat Basket
Creating with crepe paper is one of my favorite products to use during the holidays. I remember mom and I twisting black and orange crepe paper to make banners for Halloween parties when I was younger. One embellishment I really enjoy creating are crepe pape rosettes. In my book “Delight In The Details” you will find instructions on how to create your own. Accenting the rosette center with an adorable pumpkin German Scrap makes the rosette take on a sweet Halloween theme. The handle for this treat container is created by just twisting a black and orange chenille bump stem together. I then attached each end inside the painted peat pot using a hot glue gun.
For the Halloween wand I created another crepe paper rosette and accented it with a Halloween themed German Scrap and black plastic spider. You can leave the spiders as they are or alter them with glitter to give them a little extra punch to your project. I then tied several different orange and black ribbons at the base of the wand leaving the ends long like streamers. I like the movement you get from the trims when holding the wand.
The inspiration for this card started with the “Addams Family” flashcard. I accented the words using Diamond Stickles and chose the words “Mysterious and Spooky” from the TV show’s theme song as part of the sentiment. The plastic spider is accented with Black Diamond Stickles.
For this card “Halloween Night” I covered a black tag using patterned paper and stitched a straight stitch around the inside edge of the tag. I distressed the edges of the tag and attached it to another piece of patterned paper that is just a tad bit larger than the original tag. I then accented the tag using the adorable witch embellishment and placed it so it looks as though she is having a chat with the raven above her head.
The inspiration for this card started with the Bingo card. I covered the numbers with patterned paper then created a flower using a circle punch and folded the sides together making sure to form a point at the bottom. I added a punched circle to the center to resemble a full moon then attached the witch embellishment. I then accented all the edges of the circles and Bingo card using Gold Stickles and placed the glittered alphas inside each circle.
Thank you so much Lisa for sharing such amazing projects with us!!!
