From the Heart Stamps

This is my submission to From the Heart Stamps design team call.
I used a sketch from their blog and their freebie digital image, Mouse Balloon.
I water colored the  mouse with distress inks and used my quickutz nesting circles to cut all the circles. The paper is American Crafts birthday 6x6 pad.
For added fun, you could add glossy accents to the balloon!

Best Witches

 This card was cased from a card I saw on the internet but I don't remember where I saw it, sorry.
I used my Silhouette to cut the cauldron. The background was stamped with a Stampin' Up background stamp with versa mark on a purple background. I layered that on a green paper and put that on a basic black card base. Reminder, before you apply the green layer to the black base add twine. That way you don't see the twine from the inside of the card. (If you forget, use a craft knife to make a slit in the fold of the card and insert twine.) I stamped Best Wishes and cut to resemble a banner and inked the edges with green ink and applied to the corner with tape. 

To add some dimension to the brew, I used some glossy accents to resemble bubbles. There was very little inking on this card. A touch on the tag and some on the base of the cauldron. I used dimensional squares to attach it to the front of the card. 
I stamped the inside saying from a Stampin' Up stamp on some green card stock, added some twine and three faux enamel dots. The dots were made by melting down some Perler beads. Tapped the green decorated paper to the inside of the card and I was done!

Halloween Fun

These fast and easy Halloween cards are great when you don't have a lot of time but want a cute card. I used some simple die cuts I purchased at Michael's a few years back from their Recollection line for the front. I popped the pumpkin and tag up with dimensional foam squares. On the inside I used files from the silhouette store. The pop up elements make the card fun and it looks like you spent hours making it, but in fact it only takes a few minutes!

I added a few more die cuts from the same collection on the inside, glued googlie eyes on the spider and some clear wink of stella to the words "Trick or Treat". The card base was some double sided paper from my stash. 

Another card using the same die cut set. I cut the moon out of yellow paper and inked the edges with some orange ink. Added the googlie eyes to the witch die cut and glued to the moon with dimensional squares.

This is another silhouette pop up file.
