Jillibean Soup Owloween

Hey everyone, Jo here. There's a new challenge up and here is my project share. I am in Halloween mode, here's another card for you today.

I'm using Jillibean Soup's Owloween 6x6 Paper Pad and coordinating Pea Pod Die Cuts. The new challenge is "Anything Goes w/an Optional Twist - Die-licious", use more than 1 die. For this card, I used three dies: Echo Park Sun & Clouds, Lawn Fawn Chit Chat Dies, Mama Elephant Landscape Trio. The sentiment is from Darcie's Heart & Home Owl-O-Ween stamp set.

I popped up several of the die cuts on dimentional foam dots. For added detail, I doodled some faux stitching along the border.

This was extremely fun using different dies to make this card. Give it a try and join our challenge over at the 7 Kids Challenge Blog.

Have a crafty weekend!

Accordian Fancy Labels Die by Elizabeth Designs

Hello crafty friends! 
Happy Tuesday here at 7Kids
I want to share a card I made with the fabulous Accordian Fancy Labels Die by Elizabeth Craft Designs. You can make cards OR mini albums with this die! Love it!

As you can see, I decided to make a mixed media card! I had so much fun with all the different textures. I started by "coloring" my backgrounds with Ranger Distress inks and water. When everything was nice and dry, I  applied embossing paste and Aged Silver Embossing Powder to my Tim Holtz Harlequin Stencil. I heat set this with my heat gun and got this gorgeous effect!
I didn't do this to the middle panel. Instead, I used the coordinating Fancy Frame Edge Die and cut out these pretty die cuts with silver glittery paper.
The adorable birds are are from a Crafty Individuals stamp set called Four Little Songbirds They were stamped with Black Archival ink.

This is what the card looks like closed:

You can really see the silver glitter die cuts in this photo.
Finally, I added a little fran-tage!
Now I hope I have inspired you to get crafty! 

Don't forget to join our current challenge here!

The fabulous Accordian Fancy Labels die is available at the 7Kids Store as well as other items that I used on this project. They are linked below.

Thanks for stopping by!

DoCrafts Simply Gorjuss The White Rabbit

Happy Monday everyone! Well, school starts today so it's back to getting up early for me and my little guy. We are not morning people!! I'm just warning you all right now. I will probably be going back to bed once I drop him off at school. This is the worst part of going back the school...the early mornings...UGH!
Today, I'm sharing my latest card for 7 Kids College Fund using DoCrafts Simply Gorjuss The White Rabbit Cling Stamp. I thinks she's absolutely beautiful and was so much fun to color up! She's stamped on X-Press It Blending Card with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copics.

Red: R24, R27, R29

I used decorative papers from Echo Park WE ARE FAMILY 6x6 Paper's one of my favorite paper pads!! The sentiment is from a Tim Holtz set. I added some Stampendous Aged Teal Embossing Enamel around the edges, and then used my TOASTER to heat emboss it. :) The black oval frame behind the sentiment was cut out using my Spellbinders Floral Ovals Nestabilities. The gorgeous Red Vintage Smooth Paper Cherry Blossom and Blue Vintage Ruffle Paper Cherry Blossoms are from Magnolia (these are new to the store)!! My favorite adhesive that I use on all my cards is Scor-Tape....that stuff is the best!

Darcie's Heart & Home: Owl-O-Ween

Good morning! Just me Jo, sharing my card using the Darcie's Heart & Home Owl-O-Ween stamp set. Several owls and sentiments are included but I chose these two. The owl is wearing a pumpkin. I colored it with my Copics and added some shimmer with the Wink of Stella Clear pen. These are absolutely my favorite word bubble dies, Lawn Fawn Chit Chat Dieswhich fits most sentiments.

The owl is nestled on some grass, I used the image from Lawn Fawn Critters in the Savannah, that I stamped multiple times. The  piece of designer paper is from Jillibean Soup Owloween and I used orange sequins from a Mixed Sequins pack.

I'm in Halloween mode now =) Can't wait to use more of the images from this set. Thanks for stopping by and have a gorgeous day!

I have just listed FIVE MYSTERY BOXES of awesome goodies to ebay. I have chosen five different charities, so if you feel drawn to one or more, please visit those listings!

I do have a favor to ask! If someone could enter the starting bids, all of the boxes will begin to show up in searches. Right now, only three do. The more bids, the more exposure the boxes will receive when people search. The starting bid is only 99 cents and it would really help out if we could get the bidding going. The first three charity auctions end in 5 days and the last two on the list end in 7. Get bidding!

There are some awesome products in these boxes including Spellbinders dies, Tim Holtz dies, embossing folders, tools, embellishments, stamps, Magnolia Magazines, and more!!! You will not be disappointed if you win one or more of these boxes!!!
