Comic Book Halloween

Tuesday, September 27, 2022

Hi friends. I have a super fun card to share with you today made using some fun products from Whimsy Stamps. To get started, I heat embossed the newer City Streets background stamp with white embossing powder onto black card stock. I then trimmed my panel down and added it to a white A2 notecard.

I then took the Comic Car die set and die cut the car from some red card stock. I die cut the wheels from black and silver mirror card stock. The door handles were also cut with silver mirror card stock. 

I added some recycled acetate behind my car windows and then added it to the card. I attached some ghosts which are from the Boo die set. I finished off the card with a stamped sentiment popped up on foam tape. It is from the Dracula I Compel You stamp set.


I hope you have a wonderful day. Thanks for your visit and crafty hugs! ~ Alanna

2 for 1 Card Technique

Monday, September 26, 2022

Hi friends. I have a 2 for 1 technique to share with you today using the Toner Card Front Packs - A2 Fancy Florals 1 set. These panels are printed with toner and are perfect to use with foiling and your Minc machine or laminator,

I started using one of the designs from the pack and foiled it using rainbow foil. I die cut the panel using the largest die from the Sprinkles Scallops Rectangle die set. I then added the Many Thanks Word die which was die cut 3 times and stacked together. That finishes card #1.


For my second card, I took the left over piece of foil and it through my Minc machine with a piece of toner card stock from Therm O Web. You get such a different feel and look to this but I just love it.

I finished off this card the same way I did the first by die cutting the panel using the Sprinkles Scallops Rectangle die set and then adding a stacked Many Thanks Word die sentiment.


I hope you have a wonderful day. Thanks for your visit and crafty hugs! ~ Alanna

Slimline Boo

Saturday, September 24, 2022

Hello friends and happy Saturday. I have another card featuring the new Slimline Terror 1 toner panels from this last release at Whimsy Stamps. This time, I foiled the panel in purple and added it to a slimline card base.

I then took one of the dies from the Howling Night die set and die cut it 4 times, 3 times from black card stock and once from white card stock. I adhered the die cuts together, slightly offsetting the black and the white. I added it to the bottom of my card and trimmed off the edges.

I then took the Boo die set, one of my favorites, and die cut some of the ghosts from holographic card stock. I die cut the boo word die 3 times from black card stock and stacked them together. I added a piece of white card stock where I rounded the edges on the right side and adhered it to my foiled panel. I then placed my boo die cut on top of that. By doing this, I made it much easier to see the die cut sentiment. I added my die cut ghosts and this fun card is complete.


I hope you have a wonderful day. Thanks for your visit and crafty hugs! ~ Alanna

Slimline Halloween Card

Thursday, September 22, 2022

Hi friends. I have another card made using new products from the latest release at Whimsy Stamps. I am once again using the new Slimline Toner Panels - Terror 1. I foiled the vine looking panel and then added fun die cuts from the Slimline Decrepit Grave die set, released earlier this month.

I added the panel to a slimline card base and finished off the card by stamping the sentiment which is from the Grave Epitaphs stamp set.

Hug in a Mug Card

Wednesday, September 21, 2022

Hello friends. I'm back once again with another card made using new stamps from the latest release at Whimsy Stamps.

For this card, I started by taking the previously released Slimline Big BooBoo die set and I die cut it twice from some kraft and white colored card stocks. I added the tan portion to a slimline card base and then I took the inner white portion and added it in. 

I then took one of the images from the new Hug in a Mug stamp set and stamped it into that center panel. I added some quick Copic coloring and then finished off the card with a stamped sentiment which is from the same Hug in a Mug set. I popped it up with foam tape after I rounded two of the corners for added interest.


As always, I truly appreciate you taking time to drop by. I hope you have a fantastic day! Crafty hugs! ~ Alanna

Christmas Flea Market Finds Collection from Spellbinders

Wednesday, September 21, 2022

Hi friends. I have a trio of cards to share with you today using products from the new Christmas Flea Market Finds collection from Spellbinders and Cathe Holden. Click here to see all the available products in the line.


I just love how these look and that the style is somewhat outside my comfort zone which is always good to stretch yourself just a bit. :)




The patterned papers and ephemera really make it easy to create quick cards but cards that still look nice. 

I hope you have a wonderful day. Thanks for your visit and crafty hugs! ~ Alanna

Whimsy Stamps New Release & 2 Peeking Ghosts Cards

Tuesday, September 20, 2022

Hi friends and welcome back to my blog. I have two different projects to share with you today, both using the new Peeking Ghosts die set from the latest release at Whimsy Stamps that just went live today. 

For my first cards, I started by taking one of the new toner panels from the Slimline Terror 1 toner pack and foiled it using the Amber Watercolor foil from DecoFoil. I love the variegated look the foil has. I then cut the panel in half and added them to grey note cards.

I then took the Peeking Ghosts die set and die cut both of them from white card stock two times each. I added some grey card stock right behind the face and then added the ghosts to the cards. I finished off the cards by stamping sentiments which are from the ATC Autumn Ghosts set.


For my next project, I started by trimming down a piece of patterned paper from the Haunted Graveyards 6x6 paper collection and I added it to a white A2 notecard. I then took one of the ghosts from the Peeking Ghosts die set and die cut it two times from white card stock. For this ghost, I added lots of my Aqua Shimmer pen from Tonic Studios.

I finished off the card by adding in a die cut sentiment which is from the Boo die set, previously released. I die cut it from some purple glitter foam from Spellbinders. I love the dimension this adds and that it's quick and easy to use. 


Here is some inspiration from the rest of the team.




I hope you have a wonderful day. Thanks for your visit and crafty hugs! ~ Alanna
