Magic of Oz G45 Cards

Most of my Magic of Oz cards are ready. I used Graphic 45 "Magic of Oz" paper for the cards and the coordinating stamps. This was so much fun and I had the dolls when McDonalds gave them as toys in the Happy Meals a few years ago.

Toto, Dorothy's little dog.

I also used Spell Binders dies to cut out the ovals and other shapes on the cards.

The lion just needs a little courage.

The scarecrow needs a brain.

Thanks for stopping by to see my Magic of Oz cards and characters. - Judy

Halloween Cards

I made a couple of Halloween cards to share with you. Although the two cards are similiar, there are some suttle differences. You can see the first one says Trick-Or and the second says Boo.

The project started with 8.5 x 11 black card stock cut in half horizontally, scored and folded. The next layer is some patterned scrapbook paper then the Trick-or-Treat paper had a white background which I thought was a little too bright so I sprayed it with Glimmer Mist "Pumpkin Spice" and mounted it on black card stock. The next layer was ivory card stock stamped with spider webs and misted with Glimmer Mist then mounted on black card stock. Next was the witch, she is an old stamp set from Stampin' Up. First I stamped with witch with Staz on Jet Black ink then misted the paper. If you loo closely, you can see a little bark from my River Birch Tree added under the witch layer. I did spray the bark with the Glimmer Mist too.  The witch layer has foam squares under neath to give her a little pop. Wish I would have used the foam squares under the spider webs and the Boo layer but it was too late, I had already glued them on.

This was such a fun project to create. Notice the ribbon layers too, You may want to get your ribbons ready first because the black ribbon goes around that first layer of pattered paper. The three black "brads" were stick on brads.

Thanks for stopping by. Happy papercrafting, Judy

Trick or Treat Bag

I enjoyed the Graphic 45 blog hop on Trick or Treat bags and was so inspired that I wanted to make my own bag. I used the Graphic 45 Hallowe'en in Wonderland paper on the bag and had a terrific time making it.

First, I sprayed my kraft bag with Glimmer Mist "Pumpkin Spice" and then again with Glimmer Mist Blackberry Cordial. I used a heat tool to dry between layers. I then used papers from the Halloween in Wonderland 8 x 8 paper pad. Next added a black flower and cut out some of the cards to mount on and around the flower. 

 Also punched a little tag and stamped it with Trick or Treat. The ribbon was inked with Ripe Persimmon from the Ranger Ink - Tim Holtz - Distress Ink Pads - Fall - Limited Edition. Both the larger ribbon and the smaller ribbon on the tab were inked with the same Ripe Persimmon but look at the difference of how the two different fabrics absorbed the color.

The center of the flower is a white button sprayed with Adirondack Alcohol Ink.

Here's the back of the bag. Also used papers from the Hallowe'en in Wonderland paper  from Graphic 45.

I used Adirondack Oregano Alcohol Ink on this button to get the green color to go with the paper.

Can you tell what the brown stuff is stick out around the bag? Well, it's the bark from my River Birch tree in my yard. I sprayed the bark with the Glimmer Mist "Pumpkin Spice" and glued in on the bag.

This bag was so much fun and I have to thank Graphic 45 for the blog hop and the inspiration they gave me.

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Papercrafting, Judy
