Happy Halloween

We hope everyone has a SPOOKtaularly Perfect Halloween. We have some great cards to share with you today. They were created by the very talented Roxie Glaza for you today. Hope they give you a chill!

Salem Witch:

Wicked Witch Rox71 10-14

The image panel was created using the sponging technique with distress inks. I stamped the trees with Memento ink and the witch with StazOn ink because it’s thicker and will cover the tree line image so no masking needed, I use a stamp positioner in case I need to stamp again.

For each bat I punched out two shapes and used foam tape to connect them then tacky glue to attach to the card.

For the faux brads I cut from black paper 1/8″ circles using a die, cover them with Aleene’s Paper Glaze and if you want them to shine cover with Copic marker. They are attach with tacky glue.

Roxie used our Perfect Layers 1/16″ and 1/8″ tools for the perfect layers on her card.

Supplies:
Images: Just For Fun Rubber Stamps: Salem Witch, Winter Tree Line Paper: AC Cardstock – purple, Bazzill – yellow, The Paper Company- black, unknown white Ink: Ranger Distress Ink: Rusty Hinge, Walnut Stain, Black Soot, Squeezed Lemonade, Scattered Straw, Spiced Marmalade, Wild Honey, Memento – Tuxedo Black, StazOn – Jet Black Tools: Perfect Paper Crafting – Perfect Layer 1/16″ and 1/8″ rulers, Martha Stewart – bat and web punches, Scor-Pal – embossing lines around the purple panel, Cuttlebug – Tiny Tags die

Trick or Treat:

Trick or Treat Rox71 10-14

Another background created with sponging. Once the sky colors were down I added the moon by punching a 1″ circle from scrap paper to create a mask and placed it on the panel and used the direct to paper technique and rubbed the ink pad onto the panel.

Next I stamped the images using the two inks as described in the witch card.

To get my ground area darker I masked off the sky and used the direct to paper technique.

Roxie used our Perfect Layers 1/16″ tool for the perfect layer on her card.

A Busy Halloween Night:

 

A Busy Halloween Night Rox71 10-14 2

The cardstock used for the base has a white back so those partial bats aren’t really flying, just stamped on the insert!

I created the background with Ranger Distress Inks using the masking and sponging techniques.

I stamped the black silhouettes with StazOn and quickly cleaned the clear stamps which I also do with rubber and never need to use the more powerful cleaners.

The fence, bats and pumpkins are bookboard figures which is similar to chip board but not as thick. The fence is covered with Enamel EP – Vintage Black, the bats with detail EP – black and the pumpkins with enamel gels.

Roxie used our Perfect Layers Mini tools to cut the 1/16″ and 1/8″ layers.

I’m sharing a little Graphic 45 card today, using the Raining Cats and Dogs Collection. Pretty paper and my Perfect Layers Mini tools add up to an easy and quick card. I added a MFT Postage Stamp Die in the mix but everything else on the card is layered using different widths on the Perfecr Layers Mini tools. I sponged around the edges with a little black ink.

Layers on the outside…. Layers on the inside too!

I colored the seam binding ribbon with Copic BG45 and tucked in a couple of fun flowers. I added foam tape in between the layers to add dimension. I used papers from the Raining Cats and Dogs 8×8 and 12×12 Collection. Finished card is an A2.

Hope you enjoyed Jenny’s card! Thanks for stopping by.

Today’s card was created by Kim O’Connell. It is always nice to see a video of a design team member using our Perfect Paper Crafting tools to create a project. And that is exactly what Kim has done for you today!

Here is how Kim created her card:

I used my Perfect Tears tools, Perfect Cutting Mat, and Perfect Layers Mini tools. I used this adorable “Elf Shaker” stamp set by Art Impressions. An action wobble is included with the stamp set! How fun is that!

I created a little video to show you how I used my tools from Perfect Paper Crafting to create this card. Specifically, the Perfect Tears, the Perfect Layers Mini tools, and the Perfect Cutting Mat.

Here is a close up the snow. I used Aleene’s True Snow and a bit of glitter to give the Perfect Tears some texture and sparkle to look like snow.

Here is the finished card. I paper pieced the present with some patterned paper from the Carta Bella Bundles Up 6×6 paper pad. The Perfect Layers Mini tool 1/16″ layer really makes my stamped image POP!!!

ElfShaker-KOWhat a darling card. Sure hope you enjoyed todays video and card. Don’t forget to leave us a comment!

Hi there! Jenny here, with a fun card to share that’s full of layers! We designers at Perfect Paper Crafting LOVE creating layers, and our tools make it soooo simple to add those perfect layers! Here I’ve used a stamp from Reverse Confetti called Oliver Owl. He was colored with Copic alcohol markers and his shirt and tie were paper-pieced. I fussy cut him out, adding a little die cut branch to the green circle panel for him to perch on! I added some wood embellishments and a wood button tied with a hemp bow. Now onto the Perfect Paper Crafting tools that I used for my project….I ALWAYS have my pink Perfect Cutting Mat on my desk. It’s fantastic for a few reasons- It’s a great size, not too big but not too small!! Just right! It also features measurements in both metric and imperial- just flip it over to use whichever you prefer! It has grid lines directly on the mat to help you line up your projects. It’s just a great tool for all paper crafters to have! My other absolute must have tool is the Perfect Layers Mini. This tool is how you achieve that perfect matting that you’ll see behind the patterned paper on my card. This tool is small and portable, yet large enough to cover the length of all card fronts (it’s 7″ in length). There are two tools that come in this set, with 8 different measurements in total, ranging from 1/16″ (what I’ve used on the above card) to 5/8″. That’s it for me! I hope you’ve enjoyed my card, and hearing a bit more about my favourite Perfect Paper Crafting tools!!
