Happy Birthday Harry Potter! I’m a huge Harry Potter fan and was so excited when my husband and I were able to go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios in FL. We’ve actually been twice now and want to go back :) I’ve made a scrapbook of our first trip and filmed a video of the pages, click here to check it out.

Hocus Pocus

Tuesday, October 8th, 2013

I love to incorporate stamping with my mixed media collages. Here’s some more info on how I made these fun Halloween wall decorations.

Witches Bingo Card

Using a vintage BINGO card as a base I stamped tiny stars all over in black ink. I made a copy of a vintage photo and tinted the girls clothes with alcohol markers, added witch hat brads to their heads and also some vintage book text. I layered this onto black cardstock trimmed with deckle edge scissors and adhered it to my bingo card. For the medallion I layered a plain punched circle from yellow cardstock onto a scalloped circle from black cardstock and on top of that I adhered a black cat which I stamped onto white cardstock, embossed using black embossing powder and cut out. To the top corners of the bingo card I added some large eyelets and tied some ribbon to hang it from.

Boo Bingo Card

For this card I did similar treatments on the photo, card and hanger but instead of the medallion I added some triangles cut from purple and yellow cardstocks and added stamped letters to each flag to spell out “BOO!”.

Both of these (and a few other Halloween themed collages) are currently available here in my Etsy shop.

Aren’t these black kitties adorable?! They look like they are such good helpers for their witches and wizards!

Black Cat ACEO set

I made these two ACEO/ Artist Trading cards (3 1/2″ x 2 1/2″)using stamps from C.C. Designs. I stamped each kitty onto white cardstock with Memento Black ink and use Spectrum Noir markers to color them. It’s so easy to add shadowing, shading and depth with these markers! I love them! I’m not sure if you can tell but I also added touches of glitter using a Stardust Gell Roll, to the potion bottles and the hat band. I then cut each image out and mounted them using foam tape onto an orange harlequin pattern paper. Onto the pattern papers I stamped some fun text and a spider web or stars. Then mounted the pattern paper onto cardstock. I think they turned out so cute! These cards are currently available in my Etsy shop.

Potions Class

Tuesday, August 21st, 2012

I envision this scene happening in Snape classroom at Hogwarts :)

The current challenge at Lawnscaping is to make your own pattern paper. I used three different Lawn Fawn sets for my card, the broom from Making Frosty Friends, the witches hat and top hat from Hats off to You and the frog (toad), stars, flames and wand from Critters Ever After. I made two pattern papers, the purple uses stars from the Critters Ever After set and the stone wall paper is made from the top hat from Hats Off to You. I used a post it note to mask off the bottom part of the hat and stamped the top half for my stones (see pics below). Everything is colored with colored pencils and blended with Gamsol. The cauldron die cut is from Silhouette.

Trick or Treat

Tuesday, August 14th, 2012

For me it’s never too early for Halloween! Last week a got a big box of amazing new Halloween stamps from Inkadinkado to review for Craft Gossip. I love every stamp I got, lots of creepy, spooky images! Here’s a couple of my first projects, I’ll have more in the upcoming weeks.

For this ATC I stamped the image twice, once in black and one in red, cutting out the words and apple from the red and layering on top of the black. I colored my witch green and added some glaze to the apple to make it shiny.

Green Witch Art Card

For this card I wanted to make my tarantula fuzzy so I used brown flocking powder. So I could get the stamped image and the flocking at the same time I first inked up the stamp with brown ink then inked it again with a glue pad and then stamped it. I then poured on the flocking, tapped it down then tapped off the excess. If you do this be sure to quickly wipe the colored ink from your glue pad so it won’t stain it.

Halloween Night

Friday, August 3rd, 2012

This week over on Craft Gossip I did a review of Pentel art supplies.I really liked everything I tried especially the tube watercolors and the Hybrid technica pen. I used them to make a primitive witch collage for Halloween. I drew her in pencil on watercolor paper, used a Pentel water brush and watercolors to color her in then went over my pencil lines with the Hybrid pen, her hair was done with their Pocket Brush pen. I cut her dress, mask and hat from pattern paper.

I also used some of their gel pens and markers for a couple of cards.
This card uses stamps from Lawn Fawn colored with markers.

Gnome Home Card

These stamps are from Inkadinkado and colored with gel pens.

Always Be Yourself

I’m really excited to be using Inkadinkado stamps all this month over on the Craft Gossip blog! I got lots of wonderful stamps to play with and will be sharing samples and having giveaways all through October. You can visit the Craft Gossip stamping blog by clicking here.

Here’s one of my favorite cards I’ve made so far. I took the collage style cameo stamp and added a witches hat from another Inkadinkado stamp set and turned her into a witch. I used non traditional colors to make it more unique.
