I like to use Silhouette Studio software to work with digital stamp sets. I used the print-and-cut with the pumpkin. I printed it with Laser printer, and then cut it with Silhouette Cameo 3.
After that, I added a piece of the Gina K. Designs Fancy Foil – Dazzling Orange on the pumpkin, put it inside the carrier pocket, and then run it through the laminator. When it’s cold, I removed the foil and voila! Glimmer, dazzling, pumpkin!
The second patterned background, I created it using the candycorn image from the same digital stamp set. I duplicated it and printed it on a 8.5 x 11 white cardstock with Laser Printer in black and white. After that I colored the candycorns with Leisure Arts Double Ended Markers. I cut it with one of the Craftin Desert Divas – Fancy Frames. I added on top of the alcohol ink background with permanent adhesive glue.
I added some twine on the card for the wreath, and secure the twine with permanent adhesive glue. Then I added the pumpkin and sentiment label on the card with 3D foam tape.
I hope this card make this “Spooky Friday the 13th” be less spooky to you all… Thanks a bunch for stopping by today. Have a fabulous day!
Hello everyone… Wish you all a happy and good day today. I am thankful it is bit cooler here but we are still having Summer weather for sure. But, I hope this mixed media Fall card brings the Fall season early to you…
On this mixed media Fall card, I used the newly released digital stamp set, Grateful Heart, from Graciellie Design. This fall flower bouquet is absolutely GORGEOUS! I love the beautiful font combo set for the sentiments, too.
I open the PNG files with Silhouette Studio software, resized the flower, and I duplicated to 4 flower. I printed it with laser printer on a watercolor paper 90 lbs.
The patterned background, I created it with yellow and orange acrylic paints and gel printing plate. After the mono printed paper dried, I trimmed it into 4″ x 5 1/4″ and I added it on a white card base with E-Z Runner Grand.
I added the watercolored panel on top of the card with with E-Z Runner Grand and then I added some splatters with white acrylic paint spray, Finetec Gold metallic watercolor paint, and fan brush. I dried it one more time.
Hello hello hello everyone! Happy Monday… Let’s start this week with new hope, thanksgiving, and positive thoughts. And… Today I have several cards to share with you with hope they will make you smile.
These cards I created using some of my favorites digital stamps, digital SVG cutting files, and digital papers from Gracillie Design. Gracie and her design team are also sharing their projects. Check the blog hop details and list at Gracie’s blog today. Find out how you can enter the giveaway at the bottom of this post.
I cut out couple white cardstock with one of the Craftin Desert Divas – Inside Scalloped Rectangles Dies, then I stacked them together with permanent adhesive glue. I added the vellum paper on it with the permanent adhesive glue and then I added on the card with the same adhesive. I held it down with large acrylic stamping block for couple minutes to make sure it dried well.
I added both of the sentiment word and label on the card with 3D foam tape and then embellished the card with some clear gems.
For this third CAS card, it is a pretty quick and easy to make. I used the border die cut that I cut before. It is from the Magnolia Dreams SVG Files. I added it on the top folded card with DecoFoil Liquid Adhesive. I added some white splatters using white acrylic spray paint and fan brush.

Hello everyone… Over here, the weather is cooler compare to last week. Fall is coming near and it gets me to start thinking of the season of giving thanks. Today, I would love to share this simple Fall themed gift tag with you all.
After that I sprayed it with water using the Distress Sprayer, let it sit for couple seconds, and than I dabbed it off with paper towel. Then I added some white paint splatters using white acrylic spray paint and brush. After that I dried it with craft heater.
I started with creating the beach scene with white gesso and Gelatos.
I did not use any special technique. It is simply cover the pages with white gesso using flat brush and dry it.
After that, I scribble the Gelatos on the page and blended them with my finger. I used baby wipes to remove some of the blue color and the patterned left on the page turned into clouds.
I sprayed the page with Workable Fixative spray so the Gelatos won’t smeared or change.
After the background was done, I started to stamp the images on the page using VersaFine Clair ink pads. I dried it with craft heater. Colored the chair and umbrella with Dina Wakley Media Scribble Sticks.

Hello everyone… Happy Monday. Today, I would love to share this card with hope it will encourage you to do what you do with love. By doing that, you will encourage others, too.
I am in love with this new Peony Hugs Digital Stamp Bundle from Graciellie Design. In this digital stamp set, there are gorgeous images and uplifting sentiments which are great for any occasion cards, Bible journaling, and any type of projects you would like to make as gifts.
I use print-and-cut feature from Silhouette software. I printed the peony in mug with my inkjet printer on a white cardstock and cut it with my Silhoeutte Cameo 3.
And then I colored it with Prismacolors Pencils and coated it with some Wink of Stella clear brush. I set it aside to dry.
For the background, I use a watercolor paper. I sprayed some of the Pixie Spray on the Deco Foil Modern Links Stencil. I added it on the paper, then put some of the Black Ice Metallix Gel on the stencil, and spread it with baby wipe. That’s how I get the grungy, distressed look on the paper.
I put the paper in a box and then sprayed it with Maraby Art Sprays and blended the paints with water. I dried it with craft heater, and then I sprayed it again with some water and dabbed it off with paper towel. I added the finished panel on the a white card base with permanent adhesive glue.
