Fall Fun Home Decor

Hello my crafty friends! It's Jeri here today with a Home Decor project for you using the Cardz TV Fall Fun stamp set. I love doing home decor paper crafting projects. Today I'm showcasing a pumpkin shadowbox frame kit from Darcie's, LLC that I've embellished. The kit comes with a back piece, three chipboard frame pieces, an acrylic top, four clips to hold it together and three chipboard leaves. The pieces are all bare in the kit and you add patterned paper to them. Since this is a fall decor project I used my Cricut Gypsy Font to die cut the word Fall and added it to the inside before attaching the pieces with the clips. I used the Fall Fun stamp set to make a little tag that I stamped with the words Harvest Time. This stamp actually comes with both words next to each other, but I cut the two words apart so I could place them as you see them here. I often do this with Mary's stamps to be able to stretch the stamps a little more. Sometimes I even make all new sentiments by combining words from several different stamp sets. I also stamped the pumpkin from the Fall Fun set and fussy cut it to add to the bottom leaf. If you would like more details on how I made this project you can stop by my blog HERE.

Scary Treats and lots of Sweets!

Debbie here from Craftin' Chaos. I am excited to say I am on another term for Mary with Cardz TV and being a Gallery designer for the new site. She is seriously the sweetest thing and she always has fun sentiments to work with.

Its no secret that I love when it gets close enough to start making Halloween projects....folks that time is here BAM! So I created several treat holders for you with the absolutely brand spankin' new "Frankly Frightening" and then I also used "Spooky Sayings". I just couldn't stop I kept thinking about what I could make and the sentiments made it so easy!

First up I used a haunted house from the Silhouette store Design #4148. I decided to dress it up a bit so I hand cut some shutters, used a micron pen to give some slates and then inked it up with Tim Holtz Distress ink....wait for it... wait for it...Vintage Photo! Ha Ha I actually do own other TH inks but man this one is just all around always my go to ink. also cut a couple ghost and added one to some squiggly wire. I cut another fence and added it to the sides of the house. Its hard to see in the photo on the one side but I wanted the white fence so i cut off the fence that was attached to the house.

I made a test tube treat holder and then adhered the house to the front of it. I used a hole punch to make an accent circle for the top in gray. I also hand cut some yellow paper to put behind the windows to give it alittle somethun somethun. I used the sentiment "Fright Night" from Cardz TV Spooky Sayings set.

Next up I made two little treat boxes (Franky & Witches Hat) both of them are from My Scrap Chick Halloween boxes. I mean could these BE anymore perfect for these sentiments? The sentiments for these are from the brand new set "Frankly Frightening"...I love them.

Last project was made with the We R Memory Keepers envelope punch board. The size paper you need is an 8x8 and you punch and score at 1 3/4" and 4 3/4" and then I turn it over and finish the score lines where it was too big for the board and then do all the other sides at the same marks. The decorative panels that are needed are 2 pieces 3 3/4" x 1 3/4" and 2 pieces 1 3/4" x 1 3/4". I found this idea on a stampin up site. Those girls really know how to utilize punches and this envelope board.

I hope you enjoyed my projects and got inspired to create some fun projects using Cardz TV stamps. Stop by and check out all the great stamps!

Halloween Fun!

Hello Cardz TV fans! Are you enjoying the new blog??? How fun it is to design for this awesome blog with Mary's amazing stamp sets. How fun for you that you get inspiration everyday (except Sunday) using Mary's stamps right here! Gosh there are so many talented designers so you will have a blast getting inspired. Brenda here from Friends Craftin With Friends, lets get onto the projects for today. 

Ok today I have a home decor/gift project and a card for you. I took an old bottle, might have been a Tastefully Simple bottle, I washed it out and put a pumpkin face on the bottle with vinyl using the Cricut cartridge "Pumpkin Carving". I added googly eyes, some orange chevron washi tap to the top of the neck and the bottom of the bottle. For the cap, I used washi tape around the lid and then on top I punched a circle out of some paper. I used brown/white twine to wrap around the neck and added my sentiment. My sentiment is from a new Cardz TV stamp set called Frankly Frightful. I stamped it on a banner die from MCT called Vintage Stitched Label die. I am thinking of making a few of these in different sized and shaped bottles for a cute decoration for the holidays. Would make a cute gift too!

I made a swing card using a die I got on Amazon. Comes with 11 dies, I just love these dies! I used Stitched Spooky Ghost dies from MCT for my cute ghosts. Some snippets of Halloween card stock for my panels and squares. I used the cute Peachy Keen Basic Paper Doll Assortment faces. So cute aren't they?! My sentiments are from the Frankly Frightful Cardz TV stamp set. 

I hope you come back Monday to see what is in store for you next! See you next time and crafty hugs, Brenda
