Allysen’s Birthday Card

I saw a version of this card on Pinterest and fell in love with it.  I CASE’d it using Stampin’ Up! Materials. (special thank you to Dawn McVey – Raspberry Suite).
I started out by stamping an image of the low squat pumpkin and enlarged it using “Adobe Photoshop” to the 4” x 6” and transferred it to a piece of cardboard and also a piece of plain card stock.
I cut the cardboard into puzzle pieces, each on with a letter corresponding to its location. I then traced each piece onto various pieces of Crisp Cantaloupe DSP and put the corresponding piece letter on the back.

I then sponged the edges of each piece with a dauber and Tangerine Tango ink. I ran strips the Fast Fuse adhesive, across the piece of white card stock, attached the pieces of DSP in order and trimmed the edges.
Using the Big Shot, I used leaf framelits to cut out some leaves in Mossy Meadow green card stock. I also used the Autumn Accents Bigz die.I then embossed them with an embossing folder and attached the leaves with a bo…

Halloween Lanterns

Here is a cute Halloween Project you can create for trick or treat decor:

For this lantern you will need a mason jar (with or without a lid), a battery powered tea-light or votive. (DO NOT USE A REAL FLAME!!!), a ¾” watercolor wash brush and stamping supplies per your chosen design.  Mine are listed after the instructions.
First I measured a piece of Vellum to fit the jar.  I used a 12 oz Ball Jar that was just about 4” in height before the neck.  I secured the vellum to a surface on which I could paint.  The vellum will curl when it gets wet so you either want to use removable painters’ masking tape or clips to secure it and then be able to remove when you are done with the project.
With a dampened paint brush, I painted Basic Gray for the sky part of my paper and Tangerine Tango for the “earth” portion. (I added little water to dilute the color a bit)  Let it dry.             Next I used Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to stamp the images of the house, ghost, trees, bats, etc. from the Holid…
