Hello!


Today I'm sharing a project using this little mummy boy digital stamp from Kinda Cute. I went full-out with colors for this card and made a green nontraditional mummy, with bright magenta wrappings.


I was inspired to use this color scheme because of a new paper pad that I picked up at Joann's, called Monster Movie by DCWV.


I was drawn to it because it was full of colors you don't usually see or think of as Halloween. It includes some light blue, teal, magenta, red, and yellow, as opposed to the traditional black and orange or green and purple.


So, to start, I opened my image in Inkscape, along with an extra pumpkin pail from the Kinda Cute Halloween filler set, and printed it onto a piece of 80 lb. Neenah card stock.

Once I had it printed, I colored the image with Prismacolor colored pencils in coordinating colors to the paper collection.


I fussy cut the little mummy and thought it would be super cute to add some tiny googly eyes! 😄 After adding two tiny wiggle eyes, I set the image aside and picked out two patterns from the 6" x 6" paper pad.


I chose a pattern with a bunch of houses because the mummy boy would fit right in with the rest of the trick-or-treaters in the pattern. Then, I used a less busy pattern to layer behind my image so he would stand out.


I trimmed the house paper to 4" x 5 1/4" and layered it onto an A2 110 lb. white card base. Then I used the more subtle pattern with the bats, to create a 1 1/2" x 5 1/4" strip that I layered towards the right side of the card.


Next, I popped up my image onto the card front using some foam dots.


For the sentiment, I used two banners that read "happy" and "halloween" from a Simple Stories ephemera pack called Boo Crew. I used some liquid adhesive to glue the banners onto the center of the card front.



I'm really happy with how this card turned out. It's so fun and bright! I really enjoyed coloring this lil' guys wrappings a color I've never seen on a mummy before. 😂

Hi there!


I am definitely loving the pumpkin digis from the Not 2 Shabby shop, so I had to make another card using one! 😄🎃



For this card, I thought it would be fun to embrace the pumpkin spice season with a orangey brown shaker card.


To start, I printed my digital image on to a piece of 80 lb. Neenah card stock and I also decided to give my colored pencils a try instead of Copics this time. So first, I shaped out the segments of the pumpkin with a light orange pencil. Then I continued layering darker and darker oranges until I was happy with how it was looking. For some extra texture on the pumpkin, I added a couple bumps.


I moved onto the leaf and then the stem, starting with lighter colors and building up a bunch of light layers, adding darker colors when needed.


After the coloring, I fussy cut my image and went around the edge with a black Memento marker. I also touched up the black areas with a micron pen, which turned out to be a little bit of a mess. Because of the waxiness from the pencils, I ended up smearing black across my image in a few spots, but I did my best to wipe it off and color over it.


Once I had my pumpkin, I thought it needed something to go along with it on the card front. I used some spice images from the new You, Me and Pumpkin Spice stamp set from Not 2 Shabby, as well as the sentiment.


I stamped and colored the cinnamon stick and star anise images with some colored pencils and trimmed them out as well. Then, I heat embossed the "You had me at pumpkin spice" stamp onto black card stock with Versamark ink and white detail embossing powder. I used a Lawn Fawn mini frame die to cut out the sentiment onto a stitched oval.


For the background, I used the Altenew Snowflake Star Cover Die with a piece of white card stock and attached it to a piece of acetate. I built it up onto two thin layers of foam tape and went around the edges with a paintbrush and baby powder to remove the static.


I turned my acetate piece over and added the shaker bits. I used my Zig glue pen to put some glue onto the foam tape where I accidently brushed it with the baby powder. Then, I cut a piece of light brown card stock to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and laid it onto the foam tape.


I added my colored images and sentiment to the front of the shaker and then attached the panel to a 110 lb. white card base.


Shakers are so fun and I loved mixing up the coordinating sequins and beads to get a colorful, sparkly fall mix! ✨😄 I also like the softness I get from using colored pencils, but I definitely need some practice! 😂

It's SPOOKY TIME! 🎃👻🕷🕸💀🍬🍭🍫


I am in full Halloween mode, and I think this pumpkin head character from Kinda Cute, is the perfect mix of creepy and cute for a fun Halloween card.


To start my card, I sized my image to about 1 3/4" x 3" and printed it onto a piece of 80 lb. Neenah card stock.


Once I had it printed, I colored the image with my Copic markers.


After coloring, I fussy cut the image and started on the sentiment. I wanted the sentiment to say "Trick or Treat," pretty big on the card front, so I went into Cricut Design Space and welded together some bubble letter font. Then I used my Cricut to cut it out from 110 lb. black card stock.


My plan was to add my colored image in front of the sentiment, but it ended up covering up too much of the words, so that's when I decided a slimline would work better than an A2.

I matched a piece of orange card stock to the oranges in my image for the main 3 1/2" x 8 1/2" panel, and then layered a piece of green spiderweb card stock from Recollections, on top of that.


Next, I attached the sentiment to the top of the card. Because I was using a slimline layout now, I had more space to work with and I thought my image looked kind of bare.


So I pulled out some of my scraps of Halloween card stock to create faux washi-like strips. Then I staggered them in a zigzag pattern and added my colored image on top.


For the final step, I used a sheet of 110 lb. white card stock to create a card base and added the finished panel to the card front.



I love the way the orange pops against the green! 💚🧡 I think the zigzag edges look like a portal opening up to Halloween Town, where this little guy is waiting for his treats. 😄🎃🍭
