Funky Foliage Treat Box

Wednesday, October 31st, 2018

Ok, how adorable are these dies from the Tim Holtz Funky Foliage Die set??? I mean those mushrooms and acorns are just too cute for words even!!

I started with a Trinket Treat Box I made using Eileen Hull’s Trinket Box Die and designer papers from Recollections. I then die cut the Funky Foilage from Bazzil Cardstock in several fall colors that had Stick It Adhesive Sheets added on the back. The Stick It is great if you apply it to the back of your cardstock before running it thru your die cutting machine…this makes putting the foilage pieces together so much easier as there’s now adhesive on the back of all your die pieces. :o)

I used Vintage Photo Distress Oxide to ink the edges of the Foliage and treat box.

And what’s a treat box without some treats??? hehehehe

I sure hope you enjoyed my little funky foliage treat box today.

Happy Craftin’!

Trick or Treat

Hello all! Kia here with you today. I would first like to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving.

I decided to do a Halloween card to share with you today. I have used stamps and dies from two different companies, one being Concord & 9th, the other My Favorite Things. It was just too hard to resist putting these together, it is like they were made for one another. As I had a lot that I wanted to fit on my card, I decided to make a tall 3.75 x 8.5 card.

I started first with the night sky by first masking off where I wanted the moon to be. I then sponged on my inks, working with Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks and starting with Shaded Lilac, moving on to Blueprint Sketch and finishing around the edges with Wilted Violet. I then removed the moon mask, and applied the sky mask to protect the sky while I did the moon. Again using Distress Oxide Inks, I started with Antique Linen and finished with Wild Honey. Once finished, I removed the masks and ran the hose from my Mini Mister along some areas on the moon, then sprinkled the entire area with water droplets.

I stamped all the images from both sets using Memento Ink in Jet Black, and die cut using my Gemini, then coloured with Chameleon Markers. For the grass areas I sponged on distress oxide in Peeled Paint. I attached a row of the trees and the houses using foam squares and glue, and used foam squares for the critters. I added Wink of Stella to the cape on the fox, and really wished I had room for the extra pumpkin and candies, but I will use them inside instead.

I hope you have enjoyed this Halloween card. I have listed the products below, which can all be found in the Scrap’n Stamp Store.

Thanks so much for visiting Scrap’n Stamp today.

Happy Tuesday!

I love combining stamps that have been in my collection for years with newer tools, like an old favorite negative image stamp by Hero Arts from my stash as the background (inked with a couple shades of Distress Ink) and newer wildflower dies by Tim Holtz.

I grouped together three of the dies, simple cut from black cardstock, to create a bouquet.  I added some neutral patterned paper from a 6×6 Prima paper pad to frame my focal point, adding a bit of Distress ink and distressing with a tool for texture.  A few wraps of thin jute string are another simple embellishment that adds a lot!

I really like layering my word dies over a white duplicate to help them stand out.  It draws your eye to them without adding bulk. For tiny elements like words and florals, matte medium is a fabulous adhesive as you will not see it when it is dry!

Thanks for visiting!  Have a creative week…

inky hugs,

Tara
