Happy Saturday everybody! Who said monsters where just for Halloween?Well, they're not. I love to use stamps for other occasions and this card is no exception...it's for a special birthday boy! How fun, right?
I kept it simple and used one manufacturer, Reverse Confetti, for the paper, stamps, and die cuts for their NEW "Stock Your Stash" Monthly Challenge with a Birthday theme for May.
I started with an A2 white card base. Stamped the monsters on a piece of water color white cardstock and colored them with markers and water. They look a little blurry or blobby, because they're monsters and not meant to look perfect. And die cut the monsters out and set aside.
Cut three strips of patterned paper (purple chevron, green dot, gray stars). Adhered two strips (purple and green) to the card base on the left side as shown above. And take the gray with the stars piece and die cut three circles out. And save the cut out circles.
Next I placed the monsters where I wanted them, peeking out of the circles, and adhered in place. Then adhered the leftover gray circles behind the monsters and adhered the whole panel to the card base.
How we EVER lived without this MISTI tool I will never know, but it truly is a stamping game changer. Click "here" for more details. With my MISTI tool, I was able to line up the sentiments exactly where I want them and stamped on the front and the inside with two different stamps with ease. And if my image wasn't dark enough, the stamp stayed in place, and I could re-ink it and stamp again right over it to make the sentiments darker. Amazing!
I hope I've inspired you to get out your holiday papers and stamps and make birthday cards too. Or try other occasions and see what you come up with. We'd love to see them. Post and share with us every Saturday for the "Share It Saturday" post over on Facebook.

Happy Halloween! What are you doing tonight? Are you going out or staying in? My kids are dressing up and I'm taking them out trick or treating. I'll probably put on my witches hat and tag along. Then we'll watch some semi-scary movies, eat popcorn, and probably some candy too.
In honor of my mother-in-law I thought I'd share her birthday card with you. Yes, her birthday is today, on Halloween. Isn't that cool? I just love making her a card every year, because she loves everything Halloween. And I do too! So, I can really be creative and have fun with her cards...
Happy (almost) Halloween! Do you make Halloween cards? I do sometimes, as it's one of my favorite holidays and I have TONS of Halloween stamps. But I have LOTS of birthdays between September and April that I make birthday cards for. So I don't usually have time to make any, but I did squeeze in this lovely spooky card.
I love creating one of a kind backgrounds and this one definitely reminded me of a spooky night with the fog creeping in. I recommend using a watercolor paper when using watercolor inks, markers, crayons, pencils, or blending with water. Because it's absorbent, it won't buckle, or pill when you are blending or adding more water...
Fall is in the air and I'm seeing pumpkin stuff, apples, and sunflowers. I just love seeing all the sunflower fields in August, don't you? Rows and rows of gorgeous vibrant color inspired me to share this precious card I made with NO stamping. Really! I used to be intimidated by busy pattern paper or those papers that have a complete scene on them. They're just too pretty to cut or cover up with pictures. So, what do you do with them? Well, hopefully this tutorial will help you...
I'm published...again!!! I'm sooooooooo excited to share the news with you that CardMaker Magazine selected four of my cards for their Autumn 2015 issue. The digital copy of the magazine is available now and if you are a subscriber you can login "here" and see the whole beautiful magazine now. The paper issue will be mailing mid July. Go see your copy now...100 pages of gorgeous Fall and Halloween ideas and projects to get started on.
I am pleased to announce I can finally share my cards with you, but you'll have to pick up a copy of CardMaker Magazine for a materials list and instructions. Sorry! But the magazine is totally worth it!!! It's only approx. $6 US per issue, sold at specialty stores or online. It is published quarterly, and is one of the few still publishing paper copies. So if you'd like the Autumn issue you have until end of September to get your copy. Because the Winter issue comes out in October. (which I have one card in that issue too). But once you have a subscription, you have access to 2 years of back digital issues and you can download them to have forever.
So, lets have an Autumn GIVEAWAY...leave me a comment below about what you think of my new projects and what your favorite part of Autumn is and I'll announce a winner next Saturday, July 11th.
Thanks for all your kind words and support!
My mother-in-law's birthday is on Oct 31st and she loves all things Halloween. This year's card I wanted to incorporate a patch work type pumpkin I've been seeing all over social media. When you use pattern papers together in similar color families, or theme, they coordinate nicely. As I did with orange and black...
I LOVE Halloween so much I created an album just for scrapbooking our Halloween Memories. I created this page from some of my favorite things and favorite papers. I started with a 12x12" piece of kraft cardstock as my base. I used another piece of kraft cardstock, border punched the edge, backed it with purple cardstock, and adhered to the base page. Then layered several printed papers that all coordinated together and border punched down the left and right sides. I like how the colors, swirls, and edge punches all coordinate together.
I drew inspiration from the colors in my kids costumes and added a double matted border around their picture and adhered to the page. Added diamond rub-ons to the bottom right side that matched the colors on the page. Wrapped the page with black twine that resembled a spider web.
Flowers aren't just for Spring and Summer anymore, as I embellished with a flower die cut to create a "spooky" embellishment by using Halloween printed paper. Cut 3-4 flowers out and layer each flower with black mini pop dots for added dimension, add layered buttons, and adhered to the page with glue dots.
Stamp sentiment "OCT" on an office tag or die cut tag, heat emboss, ink edges, and wrapped with black twine, and adhere to page. I love ribbon, buttons, and gems. So I had to add them to this scrapbook page too. I cut several different ribbon pieces, scraps would work too, that coordinated with this page and adhered them to the office tag, added layered buttons, and adhered with glue dots. Add a sticker over the bottom ribbon for an extra title and added gems for some sparkle. I find glue dots work the best for adhering ribbon, buttons, and gems. I hope I have inspired you to make something "spooky" of your own. ~Kim
