Halloween Card Using Leftover Supplies from Love From Lizi 2017 Card Kit!

Hey lovelies!
My crafty friends who know me, know I LOVE to hoard Halloween supplies. Some things are just too pretty to use! I’ve made it my mission this year to use all the things that I’ve been hoarding for quite some time now, some of those supplies come from the Love From Lizi Halloween card kit from last year! I couldn’t bring myself to use most of the pretty papers and bits and bobs last year, so here is the first of the cards I’ve made with what I have left over!

I cut down two white panels one for my base and the other to ink smoosh and stamp. I ink smooshed my smaller panel with Twisted Citron and a little bit of Evergreen Bough Distress Oxide ink, drying between layers. Once it was completely dry I splattered some of the Evergreen Bough ink on to my ink smooshed panel and my white panel with a paint brush, I also splattered some black watercolour paint on my white panel. I stamped my skulls from the Love from Lizi “Punny Bones” set in a pattern using Versafine Onyx Black ink. I ran it through my die cutting machine with the largest of my Inside Scalloped Octagon dies from Craftin Desert Divas and removed the inside piece to use on my card. I ran the same die through once more using black card stock to create my frame.

I cut a piece of the green and black patterned paper in to a large ribbon to go down the left side of my card and adhered everything in to place using double sided score tape.

I trimmed the top off of the Octagon using my paper trimmer. I prepped a thin strip of black card stock with my EK Success powder tool and stamped my sentiment from Newton’s Nook’s “Boo-tiful Night” stamp set in Versamark ink, coated it in white embossing powder and set with my heat tool. I used my scissors to create a fish tail at the end of my sentiment banner and popped it up on my panel using double sided foam tape. I cut a panel from the patterned paper slightly larger than my base panel of my card and adhered both to my card base using double sided score tape. I finished up by framing my sentiment with some Ebony Black Nuvo drops.

Thanks for reading lovelies! Do you hoard certain craft supplies too? I feel like I need to use some up now and again so my craft room isn’t bursting at the seams!

Simple But Colourful Thank You Card!

Hello lovelies! ❤

Today I wanted to share with you a simple way to make a colourful thank you card! Most of us already have some backgrounds sitting around from previous projects that we either didn’t finish or didn’t fit what we had in store for what we were working on at the time. I had this background panel sitting around for a while, so I decided that I was going to use it for an easy card rather than having it collect dust in storage!

~Tools and products used will be listed at the end of this blog post!~

I had this background from experimenting with galaxy backgrounds, but I stopped half way through because I didn’t want to cover up the results from the ink smooshing with something darker! I splattered with my Gansai Tambi metallic watercolours from the “Starry Colors” palette to give it a little bit of shimmer and set aside for another day. When I picked it back up, I knew I wanted to make a relatively easy card so the colour here could be the main focus. I cut the panel in half at an angle so I could save the other half for another project.

I created my card base and cut a panel from white card stock slightly smaller than my base. I then adhered my ink smooshed panel to the bottom right of the panel using my regular tape runner. I took a gold peel off from Love from Lizi and placed it just above the coloured panel, creating a thin border between the panel and the white space above. I cut my sentiment from black card stock using the Lawn Fawn Thank You border die and adhered it diagonally across my white panel using my Ranger multi medium matte adhesive. I adhered some matte black paper to my card base, then adhered my panel to it using foam tape. I finished the card off with some tiny gems for a bit extra sparkle!

Thank you for reading lovelies! ❤ This was a really quick card to make, which is so far out of my comfort zone. I’m always obsessing over whether a card needs “more” (I know I’m not alone here! :p).
