Hi from designer April! Halloween is almost here. Are you getting ready for those trick-or-treaters? I must say I miss the kids coming by. We live in a cul-de-sac and we don't get any kids in our neighborhood. Here is a Halloween card I made using our brand new stamps!
I made a bokeh background for this card by sponging on several colors of Distress inks, then laying a circle stencil on top and sponging on white pigment ink. I used the CJ-Canning Jar Wire Handle for my cauldron! When I first got my new stamps I immediately thought this was a cauldron but soon found out that it wasn't! I think it makes a good cauldron anyway! LOL! I stamped it and colored it in using a Sharpie marker. I found some green Liquid Applique to add to the pot and I then added some clear Stickles glitter over it. The Witch Silhouette, Large was stamped in black beside the pot.
out!Guess what is sneaking up on
us?That hauntingly fun holiday,
Halloween.Just For Fun has some new
stamps just for this, and today’s card uses the Moonlit Witch Silhouette.
image was stamped with black Memento Ink two times, once on green for the card front and once
on orange for the background.The
circular window was cut out of the card front and layered on black and a piece
of acetate.This was popped up and lined
up with the orange background.Halloween
Greetings from the Sentiments 1 Unmounted Sheet was stamped at the bottom.
variety of orange and lime green sequins, along with a few stars were added to
the shaker window.
I didn't do anything fancy here, just some stamping and ink blending. I created this scene using three stamps - the Tiny Black Kat, Haunted Moon Tree, and Bats and a little help from my new Tim Holtz Stamp Platform! Sometimes the silhouette stamps need to be stamped twice to get a good solid print. I used Distress Oxide in black soot to stamp the silhouette images and regular Distress Inks for the background and the moon. The round ink blender was the perfect fit for the moon! The BOO letters are some tiny alphabet stamps from my stash.
Isn't this cute? It's called Witches Magic and is available now in the store. So how did I make my "night" image. I stamped the image on black paper with StazOn white ink. I then used Prismacolor markers to color it up. I especially liked how the metalic silver turned out. Don't forget to check back daily for more inspiration!
Hello, from design team member, Heidi! I want to share with you a technique I created to get a distressed look with any of your silhouette stamps. It's fun and easy, and does not require any specialized supplies -- just some cling wrap from your kitchen.
Hi Guys! It's Jen here from Scrap Shack Designs and today I have two really fun holiday cards to share with you. So I know it's not even Halloween yet, but you can never have enough Christmas cards and that's what I am here showing off today.
The first one was made using the wonderful stamptangle Christmas tree stamp which I decided to emboss in white. I also decided to emboss the background paper with a snowflake folder and keep the card to a simple and clean red and white color scheme.
Next up I decided to go with a green background and a somewhat non traditional color scheme, using black.
This fun card was kept very simple, except for the busy background. I used the Cool Yule Moose stamp which was stamped in black. I decided not to color in the stamp because again the background is very busy.
Thanks for stopping in today. I hope you enjoyed these projects. Happy Crafting!
First I stamped the 2-Sided Doodle Background/Frame on cream cardstock and rubbed a little Micro Glaze over each circle to act as a resist. I used various colors of Color Bursts on the background. Next I stamped the tree and Tiny Black Kat using Jet Black Staz On ink. The eyes are polymer stickers.
The theme for our challenge this month is Halloween! Come on over and join in the fun and you might even win a gift certificate to the store. You do not have to use a Just For Fun Stamp to enter.
BOO! Have some little ghosts and goblins you want to treat this year for Halloween? These little tombstone treat boxes are perfect for just such an occasion! All of the wicked cool Halloween images can be found here -
Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here again today and I've used some great stamps from the store to create my card. Halloween is getting closer so be sure to get your Halloween cards done. This Haunted House Silhouette stamp is from the latest release.
I inked the stamp in black and brown inks to give it a spooky appearance then added yellow to the windows. A red door invites you to the spookiness within.
The house was die cut to fit the card using Spellbinders dies. A black mat gives it some emphasis as I placed it on the spider webbed and striped card.
The sentiment is from Sentiments 1, which is an amazing collection of sentiments.
Yes today is World Card Making Day and we'd like to inspire you to create a card for someone you love! It doesn't have to be fancy, it doesn't have to be perfect, stamp it, paint it, draw, sketch or glue it. It doesn't matter...just make a card for a friend, member of your family or a random stranger...although they might think you're off you're rocker ;) LOL!!
Happy Thursday JFF Fans, today I am sharing a new stamp with you that is now available in the store.
This cute little stamp is called Hedgehog Topiary and can be found HERE in the store. Isn't he adorable? I have a soft spot for these cute little creatures as I had one living at the bottom of my garden when I lived in England. I colored him up using Copics and used papers from my stash. Don't forget to check back often for more inspiration from the Design Team! Shop the store for more new releases and goodies. Have a great day! Carolyn
Hello from design team member, Heidi! I recently took a trip to the craft store and bought some googly eyes! I got the ones that do not have adhesive on them because they were so much economical. I had an idea on how to use them for Halloween cards using Just for Fun stamps from the newest release. Are they creepy? Cute? Both?
I used the Large Canning Jar and Small Canning Jar, as well as the Lid. I filled one up with the google eyes and then used a spider sticker in the other. I simply used a black marker and a ruler to draw a straight line down to depict his web. The first card was so fun to make that I went ahead and did another!
