Quick and Easy Halloween cards…

Hello there!

Diana here today sharing some Halloween cards I created using  the Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Round 25.

These cards are super quick and easy to make!!

Here’s what you’ll need for this project:

  • pre-made white 4×5.5″ cards
  • 2 sheets of patterned paper (you can use some of your scraps on this project!!) I chose the traditional Halloween colours of orange and black.
  • coordinating letters
  • your Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Round 25 tool and Bubble Caps Round 25 and your Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Tool Round 14.
  • a fine black pen, some black ink, a bit of embroidery thread, small pop dots and small bling or enamel dots.

Make the bodies of the spiders first using your Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Round 25 tool and Bubble Caps.

Next make the spider faces using your Epiphany Crafts Round 14 tool.  Using pop dots, pop up the face of the spider towards the bottom of the body.

Add some eyes to the spiders with bling or small enamel dots (I used both).  Once the spiders are done, heavily ink the edges of the cards in black ink.  Next, attach the embroidery thread to the back of the spider bodies and then attach the spider to where you want it on the card.  Instead of taping the top of the thread down to the inside of the card, I made a little snip at the top of the card and placed the thread through it – much like with thread on a spool.

Once your spiders are on the cards, draw their little spider legs using a fine black marker.  I also outlined the body of the spider in black.

Add your saying to the bottom of the card, and you’re done!!!

My Boy

Welcome back everyone!!!

Today we are highlighting the Round Studio Shape tool 25.

It is always a go to for me for punching those perfect size cirlcles.

It also reminds me of how my boy keeps me spinning round and round!

My son aspires to be an engineer one day so I captured these super cute robots using the round tool and bubbles.

He loves to tinker and such drawing

out these complex designs.

I also used the smaller round 14 bubbles to embellish over chipboard.

I Heart You!

hello, Lindsay here with my tool of the month post! i am so happy i got the heart tool as my tool of the month post! i love all of the epiphany crafts tools but i probably use the heart one the most.

i have a few projects i did with the heart tool…first up
my spin on a “birthday card.” As a mom of 6 and a crafter we have never bought birthday cards, we’ve always made cards. well now when we make cards there are 6 cards and that can build up especially for the grandparents who save those special cards. between birthdays, mothers day, fathers day and grandparents day that’s a lot of cards. so i for my moms birthday i had a bunch of project life cards so i pulled a stack out and the kids each took a few and decorated them. when they were done i punched a hole and added a jump ring. then the front card i just added a couple layers of paper and a round 25 heart bubble cap.

next up a baby shower gift for a very stylish mommy to be and her little baby girl who was destined to be stylish too! the mommy to be had already used some maggie holmes flea papers for decor in the nursery so i went with that same paper line to match. i spray painted the frame and punched holes in the plastic picture frame slide ins. then added jump rings and cards i cut that had watercolor coco chanel quotes on them. i used a cool tip i saw on this blog from another DT member with the glitter and shape tools. i LOVE how the glitter heart turned out! (i’m also a little obsessed with gold)

last up a mini album with my favorite pictures from my baby’s 1 year photo session. this album i used the bazzill plastic paper for the cover and 6 goody bags like you use for parties. i bound them with my bind it all and added a cute heart bubble cap on a heart charm i (again) spray painted gold. i used more bubble caps inside and i used the 25 heart tool as a paper punch along with using the negative on a couple of pages.

❤{Welcome Fall!}❤

Fall is my favorite. I can honestly say that I look forward to Fall more than any other season. I love Winter almost as much as Fall…but not quite. Fall in Georgia is a challenge when you spent 30+ year of your life in The Great Lakes State. I pine for Fall. We make the best of it though. We recently went and picked apples…I love going to pick apples even if I’m sweating horrendously while doing it, though I have to say I thoroughly dislike sweating while doing any fall-like activity because it feels false. We did have a great time as a family, and that’s the part that counts most.

I’m sharing this quick tip before I share my layout and close ups: Use your scraps! Stick those partial pieces of paper in your tools and tuck them in your layout, they make a perfect finishing touch. You’ll be able to see some of these little touches in the close ups.

Autumn Feelings

background 2

Hi there everyone! It’s Riikka here! This time I’m bringing you some autumn inspiration in the form of a layout and set of ATCs.

Love of rustling leaves

One of my favorite things about the autumn is the colorful leaves and especially how they rustle under your step! What could be more perfect than to walk in  park with thick coverage or fallen leaves! So this page is about that joy.

As I said in my previous post, I’m a mixed media style crafter so this page makes no exception. I love to play with my supplies and use them in different ways. For this page I used both the heart shape bubble caps and buttons to make the background. I used warm, rich colors that have an autumn feeling in them.

I started creating the background by covering the paper partly with gesso. On top I then glued the heart shapes and then added mists and alcohol ink. The epoxy stickers resist the mist but get color from the alcohol inks which creates quite a neat looking effect! If you want to see how I then continued my page, please check out the start to finish video I created.

background

Here’s a detail shot of the outlook of the background using mists and alcohol inks. If you don’t use alcohol inks and wipe the epoxy shapes clean after misting, you can create a totally different looking page. If you want to see an example, please check this earlier video I’ve made (link).

chevron leading the eye

On top of the hearts in the background I also used Epiphany Crafts details in embellishments. The cool chevrons lead the eye towards the photo and the two vintage settings together with the small Round 14 bubble caps act like flair buttons giving dimension to the page. I also added one heart treated with red alcohol ink to the photo to emphasize my love for the leaves.

 I also created a set of autumn influenced ATCs for this post. I used the same technique in these cards than in the layout to create the background. On top I layered a few embellishments like the fuzzy cut frames and some stickers. The vocal point of each card is made by using the Round 25 bubble caps. Instead of patterned paper each cap is decorated with plant parts – two with colored leaves and one with hay. My idea behind this was to light your imagination to store those autumn memories in a different way!

Fall ATC
