Pin It



Hello!! 
I'm here to share a couple Gift Tags and a Gift Card Holder with you today as Inspiration for the Paper Sweeties Inspiration #24 October 2014 Happy Fall Challenge over on the Paper Sweeties Blog!! =) Now as you may know I have been out due to an Accident and today's projects are a couple I've been able to create using mainly my Left Hand!! HAHAHAHAHA!! I'm Right Handed so it was EXTREMLY Time consuming, but SO WORTH EVERY minute it took as I've been going CRAFT CRAZY!! So I stamped, cut, die cut and colored all with my Left Hand and I must say they turned out pretty good!! =) LOL!! So here is what I've made!!





 
I started by Die Cutting s couple Tags using the New Tag Die from PTI and one Gift Card Holder Die Cut also from PTI from Halloween Papers from October Afternoon!! I wanted to create some FUN Ribbons as my Center Pieces and I used the Tim Holtz Sizzix Die Prize Ribbons!! LOVE it!! I layered the two different tag tails together though for a Neat look!! I used my Xyron Sticker Maker to cover some of the pieces in Glitter and I LOVE how EASY it makes it to add Glitter to my Projects with little mess!! =) I also Embossed my sentiments and I LOVE the way they POP off of the Halloween Papers from October Afternoon!! =) I then stamped my Sweet Images and then colored the in using my Colored Pencils and Gamsol!! For the Sweet witch I added a Button Pumpkin for her to hold onto and I LOVE the way it turned out!! I've used the Sweeties Pets Stamp Set along with the Make the Season Bright Stamp Set and the coordinating Make the Season Bright Sweet Cuts Die Set!! I hope your able to join us this month for a chance to win a Gift Certificate to the Paper Sweeties Store and I can't wait to see what you create!!

Hello!!
Have you ENJOYED the Newton's Nook Designs September Release this week!!?? Today is the Last Reveal and we are sharing the New Apple Delights Stamp Set!!
Isn't it SWEET!!?? I thought it would e FUN to create a SWEET little Gift Bag for something I would give to my Boys or my Nieces/Nephews just for FUN!! I found these little Carmeled Apples at the Grocery Store and then got a Bottle of Red Colored Bubbles and a Deck of Cards and put them in my Sweet Little Canvas Bag!! =)  I die cut a Paper Smooches Book Mark Die to use ass my base from some Kraft Cardstock and then again twice from some We R Memory Keepers Bronze Metallic Heart Vellum!! I layered them all together after I used some White Unicorn Ink to stamp the sweet sentiment onto my Kraft Book Mark!! I then took the Sweet little Heart Image and stamped it using some Versa Mark Ink and then used my Judikins Sticky Stuff Embossing Powder to add some Bronze Distress Glitter to the Hearts and I LOVE the look!! =) I wanted to use Water Color to color in my Carmeled Apple Image so I stamped it onto some Distress Water Color Paper and then used some Distress Markers mixed with water on my Acrylic Block to color my image!! I let it dry and then added some Bronze Distress Glitter just to the edge of the Carmel to add interest!! So FUN!! I cut the Apple out and added it to a Spellbinders Label Die Cut also cut from Distress Water Color Paper that I colored with Distress Ink to for a BEAUTIFUL Water Colored Background!! I stamped my Sentiment and a Sweet little Fancy Pants Burlap Bow and attached it to my Gift Bag!! =)

Newton's Nook Designs | September 2014 Release
Hello!!
Are you Enjoying the Newton's Nook Designs September Release so far!!?? I know I am!! =)
Today we are showcasing the New Stamp Set "Spooky Street"!!
 
This is going to be such a FUN Set for creating all sorts of scenes with!!
I thought it would be AWESOME to use it for a FUN Home Décor Project!! I wanted to create a Neat Halloween Framed Piece of Art and I LOVE the way it turned out!! I started by stamping the Haunted House Image using some Versa Fine Black Ink and then I Embossed it real quick using some Judikins Sticky Stuff Embossing Powder!! I heat set it and added some Stampendous Super Fine Black Glitter!! LOVE IT!! I then stamped and Embossed two of the Haunted Tree Images with Clear Embossing Powder over my Versa Fine Black Ink!! Then I stamped one more Haunted Tree Image only this time I stamped the Second Generation stamp off in the background to give the piece some depth!! Then I stamped that Sweet Owl Image with Versa Mark and I wanted to use some Ranger Black Puffy Embossing Powder!! This is some COOL Stuff!! In real life it looks like the Owl has Feathers!! =) Then I stamped 3 of the Bat Images just in plain Versa Fine Black Ink!! I wanted to create a Glow-In-The Dark Night Sky so I stamped the Moon Image in some Mama Elephant Yellow Ink and then stamped over it using some Versa Mark Ink and then added some Judikins Sticky Stuff Embossing Powder heat set it then sprinkled it with some Martha Stewart Glow-In-The-Dark Glitter!! This looks SO NEAT in the Dark!! =) I then added the Spooky Eye Images and I knew I wanted them to look like they were really Glowing in the Dark so I used some White Embossing Powder and then added some Glue Pen to the Eye Ball areas and added some Green Glitter for a Scary Effect!! =) LOVE IT!! I decided to add some Orange Glitter to the Owl's Eyes too!! I wanted to create a distinctive Ground and Foreground so I used my Paper Smooches Stitching Dies to add some Die Cut Stitched Lines and I LOVE the Dimension it adds without extra bulk!! Then I went in and added my Distress Ink using Fresh Squeezed Lemonade, Wild Honey, Spring Moss, Pumice Stone, Walnut Stain and Black Soot to add LIFE to the Background!! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the way it turned out and I want to create another one only this time make it a Grave Stone Scene!! =) I found this PERFECT Frame at Hobby Lobby for $7.00 (at Half Off~Score) and added some Distress Ink to make the Details Pop and then I Painted a Silver Stampin' Up Name Plate with some Martha Stewart Glossy Black Paint and once it was dry I scratched away parts of the Paint to give it a Distressed look!! I then stamped and Embossed the Sentiment using Clear Embossing Powder over Black Versa Fine Ink and added alittle Distress Ink and Glued it to the front of the Frame!! I LOVE how it turned out and I can't wait to create another one and display them for the Halloween Season!!


I wanted to share a Video too so you could get a REAL Life look at just How FUN this turned out!!
Gotta LOVE Greyson (my 19month old) at the end of the video saying UUHHOO!! =) He LOVES to look at this and says uuhhoo to those eyes!! So FUN for little minds to look at and ENJOY!!

Falling into Autumn - Fall bold Leaf Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs

I stamped my sentiment also from this Stamp Set and inked around the edges and my card was done!! I LOVE the way it turned out!! =)
