Greeting Card Kids Halloween Pumpkin Card

I made this card for a swap. I normally don’t do Halloween cards but this little girl was too cute to resist.

The card base is Pumpkin Pie, layered with Basic Black. Then, I used Old Olive card stock, embossed with the Big Shot and Square Lattice Embossing Folder, and die cut with the Top Note Bigz Die. The ribbon is Rich Razzleberry 1 1/4″ Striped Grosgrain, wrapped around the top note layer.

For the main image, I stamped the pumpkin girl from Greeting Card Kids in Basic Black ink on Whisper White card stock. I colored in the image with SU Markers (Dusty Durango, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron, More Mustard, Rich Razzleberry, Blush Blossom, Blushing Bride, and Basic Black and Copic Black).

After coloring, I used 2 Way Glue and Dazzling Diamonds on the pumpkin. The Black Copic Marker must have been wet still because the glitter stuck to the hat as well. It was an unintended but welcome effect.

Then, I used the 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch to punch out the image and attached a little “Boo” tag with a Circle Rhinestone Brad. The “boo” is from Tiny Tags and the punch I used is the Tiny Tag Punch.

Hearted Thanks

This is a non-SU stamp that I bought years ago called Hearted Thanks. The label on the stamp is colored exactly like this, which inspired my colors for the rest of the card. I used Copic Markers to color in the stamped image, then cut it out.

The card base is Pumpkin Pie, layered with Soft Suede textured card stock. I used the Signo White Gel Pen to make some squiggles along the sides.

Across the front, I used 1 1/4″ Striped Pumpkin Pie Grosgrain Ribbon and tied it in the center with white string. Then, I looped the string through the Designer Buttons-Brights Collection and tied a double knot. A mini glue dot behind the ribbon and one behind the button keeps everything tight.

Finally, I took the white string and looped it through a hole I punched in the stamped image (the paper piercer makes a nice hole for this size string). I tied the ends around the button and cut off any excess. Two stampin dimensionals behind the stamped image keep it in place, but you could also leave it hanging freely.

Another version I did uses the Decorative Label Punch. I layered the stamped image onto Poppy Parade card stock punched out with the Decorative Label Punch. Then, I added two Rhinestone Brads to the sides.

1 1/4″ Pumpkin Pie Striped Grosgrain Ribbon was wrapped around the soft suede card stock and I attached the label to the ribbon with glue dots.

Build A Bear Easter Card

This is an Easter card using the Build A Bear stamp Beary Best Friends. I chose to make this one for a little boy, but there is also a cute girl bear image in the set. The accessory set is called Beary Best Times and includes images such as this Easter basket, a skateboard, an umbrella, ice cream cone, and others.

The card base is Gina K Luxury White base weight, layered with blue polka dot paper from Welcome Neighbor DSP (part of the Sale-A-Bration catalog).

I stamped the bear and basket in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them in with Copic Markers. I mounted that onto Old Olive card stock and then using the Cropadile, added two orange Circle Rhinestone Brads in the upper right corner. That was attached using Stampin Dimensionals.

For the sentiment, I stamped “Happy Easter” from Well Scripted in Pumpkin Pie ink on Whisper White. I punched it out using the Large Oval Punch and layered it onto an Old Olive Scalloped Oval Punch out. That was also attached using Stampin Dimensionals.
