Pumpkins For SALE

Pumpkins 4 Sale 2014
It is time for The Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge for this week and the twist is to make a card/project “Your favorite something…. and to tell us what it is” So I will do that now my favorite something is to make scenes. I made this card sometime ago and it was published at Though The Craft Room Door Magazine so I could not put the card on my blog for awhile and it only showed the front of the card. Now I can show you all of my card. The image is from Sandi digital stamp called “pumpkins 4 sale” and I did use some stamps that are from stampendous they are the branch and grease, to finish off the scene. I stamped them with memento rich cocoa. The sentiment is from The Angel Company Co.

I did a watercolor wash for the background and I was real happy how that turned out.

This another side view. I used some brilliance Mediterranean blue on the edges of the finished card and then I cut it down a little. All of my card stock was from my scraps.

Green Fairy and This is my style

Green Fairy 2015

I decided to post these 2 cards for you because they where kind of the same color group and not for any other reason. I need to get some of my cards posted so you do not think I never make any cards. I lost my instructions on this card and can not remember the where I got most of my things. So I’m going to show you pictures.

I do know that the flowers and the fancy stuff I got at Hobby Lobby in the Bridal Department when it goes on sale and I get it at 50% off.

Green Fairy 2015 l

The die cut is from Spellbinders. The lace is from Wild Orchid crafts. The inside I now that is an EK punch.

Dress

Dress 2015
Sorry I’m so late posting this, we have had several family members stopping by this week and not staying long so time was cut short. I wanted to give you the pattern and tell you how super easy this is to make. The Twist at Twisted Thursday is to make something and use texture. So I thought I would use material and I found this awesome material in all different colors. How I did the background is I used glossy paper and I added watercolors to it and for my inside background I did the same thing. 

Dress 2015  r
These are the views of the card.. I used Beacon adhesive Fabri-Tac permanent adhesive (Love this stuff) it is really thick so I thin mine out with a small amount of 100% acetone. The Fabri-tac work great when you are are working with material, lace, ribbon anything that is like fabric.

Dress 2015  l
Fabric-tac even to hold things on the material.

Dress 2015  i
I want to tell you, I’m so sorry how bad this picture turned out. All the other pictures where fine but this one.

I wanted to do a couple of the dress with paper and what is nice is you can use your scrapes. First I used my light box and copied the patterned on the back of a piece of paper and that work just fine.

1
Cut it out. You need to remember the straight lines are mountains and the dotted lines are valley's.

2

So then I took out so gridded template plastic (I use that a lot for my patterns) and thought this might be easier, so I made a pattern. I think it was easier but if you do not have any I would not go out and buy any. So I cut out another dress.

3

So this is one of the dresses I cut out. You could also cut the top in a different color and way you want it. You could use real fancy paper add some ribbons be creative. I did all the folds.

4

You can click on the picture and save as and you will have the pattern.

5

This is what it looks like when I was kind of done. I have not put the dress on a card yet.

6

This is the other one. I used beads on this one. Used some beads to look like buttons. So they are fun and real easy. Not sure if I was going to make a card might do something else, have any good idea?

7
Thanks for stopping by, I hope your week end was good. Weather was real nice got rid of some some and it is going to be in the 50’s all week and that sounds pretty good to me. Hope your week is good.
