Halloween card


Today I will share another Halloween card.
The background of this card is made using Tim Holtz Planks die and 3D embossingfolder Lumber on Distress Media Heavystock. I started to diecut some planks and then used the 3D embossingfolder to get the texture. Before I embossed the plank pieces I inked one inside of the embossingfolder with Jet black Archival ink to get the ink down in to the texture. After embossing I used Distress Oxides in different brown tones to get the wood color.
Then I mounted the planks together with tape and som 3D adhesive. After that I diecut the clawmarks from Tim´s Sizzix die Clawmarks.

Behind the clawmarks I mounted a piece of Tim Holtz Design papers from the Regions beyond stack. There you can see the face of a lady who have been missing for a while...

For the Halloween text I have used Tim´s technique stamping, with stain, instead of stains I used Distress sprays in Carved pumpkin, Black soot and Wilted violet, then stamped with Picket fence. Stampset CMS138, Apothecary from Stampers Anonymous.

Under the Halloween word I placed Drip edge diecut from Tim´s Sizzix die Drip edge. I cut this from Kraft cardstock in red and sanded, then used some Glossy accents above.
Also some cheesecloth coloured with Carved pumpkin Distress spray and Black soot Distress ink.

 In the left corner I placed an Ideaology clip and owl. The owl and clip are coloured with some acrylic pants and I used Stickles glitter in red for his eyes.

 For the sentence I used some Halloween clipping stickers.

Hello and welcome,

Last weekend I went to a crop and received some new Tim Holtz, Stampers anonymous stamps that I have ordered. I decided to make a Christmas card so I started with the set Yuletide CMS356 and the stamp with Santa. And I couldn´t resist, what if I put the deer´s head on Santa´s body? Then I was hooked!

I masked the stamps together, and colored him with Distress inks.
For the background I used Distress Mixed media Heavystock and Distress Oxide in Old paper. Then I stamped the Advert stamp from CMS358 and embossed it with embossingpowder in gold for an old and vintage look. I also stamped the textstamp from CMS328 Entomology with Walnut stain Distress ink. I mounted the background on two different designpapers from Tim Holtz Tidings stack, then on black Coredinations cardstock as a base. All inked with Distress ink Walnut stain on the edges.

 I diecut some houses with Tim´s Sizzix die, Cityscape Metropolis, from Coredinations cardstock and sanded for a distressed look.

I used a Ideaology Tiny bell and a string for decoration.

I used Grit paste on the roofs as snow.

  I used two stamps from the CMS323 Holiday postmarks as "decorations", stamped on designpaper with embossing powder in gold. I mounted the two pieces with 3D tape for dimension.

I also put a Ideaology Hexagon fastener in the top right corner.

I think the "Deer-Santa" looks so proud and satisfied when he leaves the city after he has given away all the Christmas gifts . He´s got so much authority. lol.

I will try this card in this challenge: 

Thanks for visiting, 

Have a nice day,

Theories card


Today I will share a quite simple card, but a card I really enjoyed making.
For the background I used Distress Oxides in Walnut stain, Vintage Photo, Broken china and Stormy sky.
I used a Tim Holtz Sizzix die to cut out the numbers on the left. I saved the star from the diecut and put that on the balloon with a 3D sticker. I stitched around the panel with my sewing  machine.

I used one of Tim Holtz Stampers anonymous stamp set, Theories, CMS 329. I stamped the image and text with Ranger embossing ink, and used black embossing powder, and heated.

I mounted the card on another "background" made with Tim Holtz 3D embossingfolder - Mechanics. I used black cardstock, embossed with the folder and colored it with Distress crayons in Stormy sky and Spiced marmalade. Then I mounted it on a black card.

 On the bottom of the image I used Seth Apthers Baked texture embossing powder - Rocky road for some extra texture. 

 Look at the 3D effect from the embossingfolder! Impressive.

And look at the chunkiness from the Rocky road embossingpowder.

 I will try this card in this challenge:

Thanks so much for visiting!

Have a nice day!
