One of those days on Kraft Lori Barnett

This card is just so cute. The colors Lori chose and the way she colored things in – it really looks like Fluffy is sitting in water!

Lori says: “I get such a kick out of fun images like this! What do you think Fluffy is thinking? If we only knew! HA! And that little bird on the snorkel…no fear there! hee hee hee ;)  I made 2 very similar cards using the same 2 stamps. I had so much fun making the first card…I couldn’t help myself to make the 2nd one! Both have a shimmer cardstock card base and a panel I created using white cardstock spritzed with blue ink spray and shimmer spray.”

This is what Lori did:
I colored the image with colored pencils, gamsol and blending stumps. I did add a few accents of white gel pen. Clear Wink of Stella is painted on the mask, floaties and water. I used a clear gel pen to color over the snorkel, mask, flippers, floaties and water. For the sentiment, I stamped on white cardstock – then hand-cut in the shape of a cloud. The blue cloud is also hand-cut.

This pretty card was made using one stamp and some lovely background papers. Stephanie used a nice textured pink paper slightly tilted under her main image. I love the cheeriness of the colors she’s chosen for the flowers. And she added a great cracked glass effect on top using layers of Versamark ink, embossing powder, her freezer and some holding of breath! Be sure to click on the image to see the larger version. Wonderful!

Well Joanna found the PERFECT backgrounds for Mr Peedles! I don’t know where she found that fire hydrant but it’s great! I love all her layers and tying them all together with the big swirl. Cutting out Mr Peedles really adds dimension – as does her shading and that little hint of blue she used under the hydrant and his paws.

Happy Fright Night indeed! Although I don’t think these pumpkins are taking it all too seriously. I love the pairing of the 3/4 circle and scallop with the band of paper on top, something Stephanie used in a previous card. And the little fence poking out on the sides. Too cute!

Tanya made this party favor for the boys at her daughters birthday party. At first I must admit I didn’t even see that the background is actually the journal blotch stamp – how clever. And the stick actually belongs to a lollipop inside! I think this is such a great idea and oh so cute – although I hope there weren’t too many boys at the party because that’s a lot of cutting out to do. Tanya did add that the project is “pretty easy peasy, and very inexpensive.”

Materials Required / Used

Cardstock, Cutting board, hole punch,  Scor-pal, ribbon, markers, adhesive, lollipop
Cut your cardstock into a  6.5″ x 2.5″ rectangle
Score your rectangle at
3 1/2″
Fold your cardstock and punch out circles at 1.25″ (center) as seen above.
Getting the lollipop in is a bit tricky, you have to angle it in.  Make a trial one and play around with it.  I promise, it will fit in.
As you can see, the lollipop is nestled in. You can then go about decorating the front.

Here’s a wonderful card from Lori! She got our her markers – she likes Spectrum Noir which are similar to Copics to color everything in.

I just love the big offset shadow – something I haven’t tried before, but now I’m going to have to. I love the way she added the little gray accents to their “garments”. :) And that she individually cut out the bats from a stamp (it’s actually a garland of bats) and used mounting foam to stick them to the card – really adds dimension. All the green glowing eyes were the perfect pop of color.

Bubbles, bubbles, bubbles. Isn’t this so sweet. Monica used lots of offset circles to create the perfect card for little Daphne to float on. I love the pop of yellow on her floatie bear and the little teal heart in a sea of dots.

Halloween is right around the corner and these Trick-or-treaters are ready! Stephanie stamped this card and did a fabulous job. I love her distressed look – gives it a vintage feel. And the addition of the bright yellow moon with some little bats certainly sets the stage for a trick-or-treating adventure. I sure how they leave some candy for the rest of us.

Here’s a cute card from Lori. I love the combination of hot pink and black. Black always frames images so well, it just makes them stand out so much. The colors she chose are just so cheery and I love her addition of little flowers to her shirt and a hot pink color to the dog.

Lori says:
I can’t think of a better way to say “thanks” than with a handmade card. Hadley and Kitty are giving Buddy a great BIG THANK HUG! So cute!!! All the coloring is done with Spectrum Noir Blendable Colored Pencils along with Gamsol and Blending Stumps. Main image is layered on circles and a die-cut doiley. The sentiment is stamped with a neon ink and heat embossed with clear ep. I LOVE how bold this sentiment is! It really makes a statement. It’s a “must have” stamp! A little touch of vibrant pink glitter on and some black epoxy hearts finish the card perfectly.
