Impression Obsession Happy Haunting Halloween

Good Thursday morning.  My projects today were made for the Impression Obsession Happy Haunting Halloween design team challenge.  I sure hope you’ll come and play along with us.  You can see all the challenge details and prize information on the Impression Obsession Blog.

I’m not fond of horror Halloween themes so I usually choose more cartoony dies and stamps to play with.  My first project was made with the Spider Web Background, Spider Trio and All-in-One Frames Rectangles 2.  I would not want to run into a spider web with these three scary spiders in it.  LOL!

Come see how I made this sppoky spider Impression Obsession happy haunting Halloween card.

The Spider Web, Frame and Spiders

  • Cut the spider web background using white cardstock.
  • Cut the frame and spiders using black cardstock.
  • Apply double stick tape to the back of the frame and attach the spider web background.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attach it to the orange card base.
  • Lightly form the spider bodies using a large stylus and molding pad and bend their legs a little with your fingers create the appearance of movement.
  • Apply double layered pieces of mounting tape to the back of the spiders and attach them to the orange card base.

My second card was made using the Halloween Cutout Circles and All-in-One Frames Rectangles 2.  I think these small circle silhouettes are so fun used all together on one card but would be very cute used individually one small cards or tags.  And again, these are all whimsical images that are full of Halloween fun and not  yucky horror type images.  Come see how I made this fun Impression Obsession happy haunting Halloween card.

The Circle Cutouts and Frame

  • Line the circles up on the black cardstock and cut them.  The circles come tabbed together but I never cut them apart so it would be easier to cut them so they were all lined up perfectly.
  • Cut the frame using orange cardstock.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame.
  • Attach the circle layer to the back of the frame.
  • Apply double stick tape to the back of the circle layer and frame and attach a piece of orange cardstock behind the openings.  I wanted the circle images to lay flat against the orange background..
  • Attach the completed circle frame to the black card base using double stick tape.

I hope my fast and easy Impression Obsession Happy Haunting Halloween cards have inspired you to get out your dies and stamps.  Halloween is just around the corner.  I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you’ll hop over to the Impression Obsession blog to check out the challenge and the list of other team members who have projects to share.

Die Cut Alpine Window Scene

Ellen Hutson Die Sale October 15 thru 17.

Good Monday morning. My project today is a die cut Alpine window scene made using the new Essentials by Ellen Alpine Window set.  I was intrigued with this set when it was released in September and couldn’t wait to play with it.  These cut-away windows can be used individually or combined to create fun dimensional scenes.  Check out Julie’s great video tutorial on the Ellen Hutson store site.

Come see how I made this snowy die cut alpine window scene.

The Window Layers

  • Cut the house layer using a 4″ square piece of white cardstock.
  • Cut the tree layer using white cardstock and cut off the trees.  (the white trees will be replaced with green trees during the assembly process)
  • Cut several trees using green cardstock.  I cut small squares of cardstock and laid directly over the trees portions of the die to cut out the individual trees.
  • Color the tree trunks with a brown Copic marker.
  • Color the house using a dark red Copic marker.
  • Cut an additional white house, cut off the roof section using scissors and attach to the red house using rolled up double stick tape.

Come see how I made this die cut alpine window scene.

Assemble the Die Cut Alpine Window Scene

  • Cut strips of mounting tape and attach to the back of the house window section.
  • Attach the tree layer to the back of the house window layer.
  • Create two rounded ground sections by cutting the negative leftover portion of the house layer.  (I could have used the mountain layers that comes with the set but I wanted to have lots of snowy blue sky showing in my window.)
  • Attach the rounded ground sections to the back of the tree layer using double stick tape.
  • Cut a piece of light blue cardstock to fit behind the window.
  • Apply falling snow to the blue layer using a small tipped brush and undiluted white watercolor paint.
  • Attach the blue sky layer to the back of the scene using strip of mounting tape.
  • Apply double stick tape to the back of the blue layer and attach to a 4.25″ square piece of dark red cardstock.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of the scene layer and attach to the card base.
  • Attach the green trees in the scene using glossy accents and rolled up glue dots.
  • Apply undiluted white watercolor paint to the tree tips and under the windows on the house.
  • Finish by applying a small amount of yellow Stickles to the windows of the house.

Come see how I made this pretty die cut alpine window scene.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my die cut Alpine window scene project.  I had so much fun making it and can’t wait to see how I can use it next.  I’m not sure about you but I’m going to get out my Ellen Hutson die wish list and go shopping for new dies while they are on sale.  Thanks so much for coming by and I hope you have a great week.

Clean and Simple Pine Christmas Cards

Rubbernecker Stamps October Sale

Good Sunday morning.  I have two clean and simple pine Christmas cards to share with you today made using the new Rubbernecker Twigs die.  For my first card I used the twigs to create a small pine wreath and paired it with the Window 4 Pane die and embellished the wreath with a bright red multi loop bow.. 

Come see how I make pretty clean and simple pine Christmas cards.

The Window and Card Base

  • Cut a piece of green designer paper 4.25″ x 2.75″ and attach it to the top of the card base using ATG adhesive.
  • Cut a piece of white card stock 4.25″ x 3.00″, score it every .25″ across the paper using your Scor-Pal and attach to the card base using ATG adhesive.
  • Cut two windows using white cardstock.
  • Use the window as a template to draw cut lines on the card base.
  • Cut the opening on the card base using your craft knife.  Cut about 1/8″ outside the drawn cut lines.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of the window and attach over the front opening of the card base.
  • Apply ATG adhesive to the back f the second window and attach it to the inside opening of the card base.

The Wreath

  • Cut a circle wreath base using green cardstock.
  • Cut several sets of the Twigs.
  • Trim off the top half of the twigs to make small enough for this wreath size.
  • Attach the twigs to the wreath base using glossy accents. Alternate the the direction of the twigs, one left, one right and one center and continue all the way around the wreath. 
  • Create a multi loop bow and attach it to the wreath using glue dots.
  • Attach the wreath to the lower window using glossy accents.
  • You can check out my wreath video and step by step tutorial on Splitcoaststampers.

Come see how I make clean and simple pine Christmas cards.

My second card paired the Twigs with the Borders #3.  I created a pine twig bough on the pretty white layer and embellished it with a red multi loop bow.

Come see how I make lovely clean and simple pine Christmas cards.

The Scalloped Layer

  • Cut the Borders #3 using white cardstock.
  • Attach the layer to the card base using strips of mounting tape.

The Pine Twigs Bough

  • Cut several sets of the Twigs die using green cardstock.
  • Begin attaching twigs in the center of the white layer using glossy accents, alternating the twigs left and right to create the the bough base.
  • Trim off the bottom third of several twigs and attach them to fill in over top of the base to create a full bough.
  • Create a multi loop red bow and attach to the bough with glue dots.

Come see how I make elegant clean and simple pine Christmas cards.

I had fun making these die cut pine Christmas cards.  As much as I love creating detailed scene or floral projects with lots of part and pieces, it is always nice to make several clean and simple cards to have on hand for those last minute card needs.  Today is the last day of the Rubbernecker sale.  Be sure and check out all the new dies that I have used over the last several posts. Thanks so much for coming by.
