Halloween or Christmas??

October 21, 2015

Hi there!!

It's Yolanda here, from Scraping Time. Today I'm going to show you two very different projects. At this moment, I´m moving between Fall, Halloween and Christmas and that´s why it was impossible for me to choose just one and I decided to play with two topics today.

Let me show you a Halloween card. I am from Spain and here, Halloween is something learnt! We never celebrated it when I was a child so it´s not easy for me to make projects about it! I feel they are always very sweet instead of scary!!! :o)

I fell in love to this digital stamp from Gerda Steiner Designs: Kid in Pumpkin . Isn´t it so gorgeous??? 


I printed it and coloured it with my Spectrum Noir Markers. Then I fusy cut it and put some Wink of Stella Clear to make him shine! I love this image!


For the background I used several Distress Inks. I love this combination because they blend very well. 


Once I had done it, I used a tag die to give some interest to it! I die cut three ones in black cardstock which I glued together to give it some volume on my main panel. Then I die cut a speech balloon, stamped my sentiment and then added a clear epoxy sticker. Finally, I added a pretty bow and glued everything to a purple card base. 


And now, let me show you my first Christmas project in this blog. I have used some stamps from the new  Christmas Clear Stamps Sets.


I love that these sets have lots of different stamps and the most important thing for me is that they are from different sizes so that you can make backgrounds, little details or complete scenes. That´s great!

For this entry, I decided to work with a Snow Globe. I bought it in a photography store and it was so easy to use. You just open its base and it has two cardstocks inside. You take them out and you can use them as a guide to fussy cut your own base. Then I created my two scenes. For the first one, I stamped that friendly Santa and on the other side, I created a tiny snowy scene. 


I added some snow flakes wiht my white gel pen. And some Wink of Stella white pretending to be the snow.

Then I used some fine detail white embossing powder for my sentiment and I made my own banner. I added two mini brads and used some glue dots to stick it to the Snow Globe.






I hope you have enjoyed and I wish you a happy week!!

See you soon!
