First Saturday with Megan {10.1.22} Have a Spooktacular World Card Making Day!

Happy World Card Making Day! Today we have Megan with us to share an amazing Platform Pop-Up card for Halloween! Let us know in the comments what you have planned to celebrate our card making hobby today! We hope you have a “spooktacular” crafty day!

The colors that Megan used for this amazing design are so eye-catching! Megan die cut the Platform Pop-Up from Bristol cardstock so she could add Distress Oxide color. She chose Lucky Clover and Pine Needles to blend that cool dark teal shade!

Megan created the cute jack o’ lantern using Stitched Pumpkin Frame and Outside In Stitched Pumpkin. She cut the pieces from Fake Tan cardstock, then she added shading with Ripe Persimmon Distress Oxide ink. And then the leaves in Cilantro and Noble Fir cardstock got some inky shading as well.

Next, Megan added lots of fun elements to enhance the spooky look of her design! She used just the Booyah coordinating dies to cut the ghosts from vellum, then she attached them to the pumpkin with clear acetate strips. Then she added happy spider from Cute Cobweb and bare tree from Scalloped Treat Box Haunted House Add-On.

The Platform Pop-Up folds flat for mailing! You may need to use an oversized envelope to accommodate the height of the ghosts. Megan added that fun greeting from Simply Fall Sentiments! Anyone opening this spooktacular card will be sure to smile so big!

I absolutely love this amazing Halloween card! Thanks so much for sharing with us today, Megan!

Renata’s Glow-in-the-Dark Card and Bookmark Set

Renata created two fun projects featuring Nighttime Sky Stencil and Fangtastic Friends! Her glow-in-the-dark card and matching bookmark are so cute!

Renata stenciled the backgrounds with Distress Oxide Inks in Tumbled Glass, Blueprint Sketch, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot.

Renata masked off the edges of a card panel before she stenciled the moon and background! I love how she stenciled the spooky clouds over the top. Then she added the cute Fangtastic Friends bat along with candy and a sentiment from Fox Costumes Before ‘n Afters. I love the addition of the swirls from You Autumn Know.

And then for some special effects, she stenciled the sparkly stars with Glow-in-the-Dark Stencil Paste on the card. She let them dry completely and then she turned off the lights to see them glow!

The adorable bookmark starts with Large and Small Mini Slimline dies. Renata stenciled the background the same as the card before adding the cute Fangtastic Friends images! To make the hanger for the bookmark cord, she used Snow Globe Gift Tag to sandwich between the layers.

Thank you so much for this fun inspiration, Renata!

Lawn Fawn Video {9.29.22} Kara’s Apple Barrel Card Inspired by a Song

Kara joins us today with another charming card design to inspire us! She created with Build-A-Barrel: Apple and a musical theme. You can watch the video below or click HERE to watch at our YouTube channel.

Thank you so much for watching!

All of the amazing color on Build-A-Barrel: Apple and Henry’s ABCs starts with Textured Canvas cardstock! Kara added shading and highlight with Distress Ink and Copic Markers, finishing with some white gel pen shine!

The adorable mice are from Apple-solutely Awesome, You Autumn Know and Berry Special. Kara used Copic markers to give each one a cute personality! She found the first part of her sentiment in the Speech Bubbles Lawn Cuts set. It looks so cute on the Berry Special sign that she colored to look like wood.

I love how she finished the sentiment, based on the old song “A Bushel and a Peck” on the inside of the card! Kara added a fun surprise as well by adding the extra apples, so clever!

I love this beautiful card, Kara! Thank you so much for inspiring us today!
