Halloween Washi Cards

There are few cards I love making more than Washi cards. One: ease of making. Washi cards are so easy to make. Even when you do the most intricate of designs, Washi cards are easy to make and a card can be done in as little as 10 minutes. Second: they always look unique. There's so many ways to approach Washi cards. You can alternate strips, use all different kinds, layer and crisscross etc. And if you're like me, you have more Washi tape than you know what to do with. This week I used Washi tape for two different challenges. Let's take a look.

Over on Scrapping4Fun Challenges, they had a simple task:
Gladly! This is a simple design with an assortment of different brands of Washi tape.
For my second challenge, I was inspired by Just Us Girls Challenge blog. The task was wholly unique as they celebrate their 600th challenge!
I used the same ideas as the card above but embellished it with 6 pumpkin stickers.
What you can't see here is the way these pumpkin stickers come off the page and are chiseled in a way to catch the light.

Anyway, I'm working on some more fall and Halloween cards as my card show at Blooming Hill Farm is on the 26th of this month. Be sure to check back each day for some new and cool cards!

Anna Griffin Empress Machine Review

For the past few months, I've really given my Anna Griffin Empress Machine a workout. For those not in the know, The Empress is a high powered non-crank emboss and die cutting machine. It's akin to devices such as the Cuttlebug, The Big Shot, or the Gemini. I Have a Cricut / Cameo / Silhouette - Why This? The short answer is, you can create texture in your cards. While the aforementioned devices are no doubt powerful and create designs that the Empress can only dream about, there's no doubt that emboss machines give textures and creates intricacy that cutting machines cannot compete with. My most complimented cards are not the ones with the most layers or even the most elegant, rather it's the cards with texture. Cricut and other Cutting Machines just lack that  ability to create the"feel" of a higher quality card. Pros of the Empress I absolutely adore my Empress. For those with arthritis or other mobility issues, a device like the Empress is a

Fab Friday #194 Entry: Fantastic Flip Card

This week, I finally used my Fantastic Flip Dies from Anna Griffin. I decided to make the card using the color palette designated by Fab Friday Challenge Blog . The colors were as follows: The color palette gave me a beach vibe; that said, I wanted to kind of flip the colors on their head. After much searching, I found a beautiful wallpaper print, and decided that would be the basis of the card. The trickiest color to implement was the Bermuda Bay color. In order to create a surprise, you only see hints of the bay while it's close, and the color doesn't truly shine until you see the card fully open. The card didn't exactly come out the way I planned originally. I expected the background to be uniform (since the directions indicated that double sided paper was suggested). It means the emboss didn't really shine the way it would on monochromatic paper, but I chose this paper specifically for the challenge. Still, after it sat for a while, I became fond of the two sided pa

CAS[E] this Sketch! Challenge #399 Entry: Holly and Christmas Truck Cards

This week over on the CAS[E] this Sketch! Blog  they offered a clean and simple sketch that was a pure delight. As those around here know, CAS cards are not really my specialty. I spend much more time with layers upon layers; nevertheless, this allowed me to go to the basics and get some simple Christmas Cards done. The sketch was as follows: I really wanted to stay true to the blocking of the sketch. Ultimately, I created four variations on the sketch design. My first card leaned into the sketch as shown. I used some holiday scraps to give the design a little pop. My second card used the same scraps, but with a different stamp sentiment. This is the second time this week I've used this Truck Recollections stamp, but I really can't get enough of it. Something about the truck and plaid played really nicely together. I then went for the green variations: Really the exact same set up in green. And here was the fourth variation: In the background you can see my gorgeous new rainbo
