Simple Stories: Boo Crew Cards

Happy World Cardmaking Day! I love a good crafty holiday and this weekend the papercrafting community is celebrating World Cardmaking Day on Saturday, October 3rd. Simple Stories is celebrating by kicking off the weekend with an Instahop.

Come participate by starting at the Simple Stories Instagram page (@simplestories_) and leave a comment on each designer’s post in the hop. Each comment left will count as an entry towards your chance to win an AMAZING prize! Details about the prize, etc. are listed in the hop. (I promise you won’t want to miss it!)

I love the magic of Halloween captured in the Simple Stories Boo Crew collection with it’s cute characters and just a touch of spookiness. I created three Halloween cards for the Instahop and wanted to share them here on my blog as well!

This first card features one of my favorite die-cuts from the pack of Bits & Pieces. That cute sleeping bat hanging on the branch with his pumpkin friend keeping watch stole my heart. I layered it with the spiderweb die-cut from the same Bits & Pieces pack then anchored everything on the circular journal block from the Journal Bits pack.

How cute is this spooky witch cooking up her next potion in the cauldron? (Poor little mouse. *giggle*) I fussy -cut her from the 4×6 Elements paper then paired her with the ‘Beware’ Foam Sticker title. A spooky moon sprinkled with bats from the 12×12 Cardstock Sticker Sheet adorns the corner. CUTE!

This last card features a happy ghost doing a happy dance over the candy he scored at his visit to the haunted house. Again, I used the Foam Stickers for the sentiment. The ghost and pumpkin come from the Chipboard Stickers, and the other pieces can be found in the Bits & Pieces and Journal Bits packs.

Don’t forget to add shiny dimension to your project with the adorable Decorative Brads! I love that they are self-adhesive stickers now … LOVE not having to deal with poking holes through my project and bending back prongs. These brad stickers are perfect for those of us who change our minds a lot during the design process! *wink!*

Seriously, is this not the cutest Halloween collection you’ve ever seen, or what?! Find the Simple Stories Boo Crew collection at your favorite retailer now!

Simple Stories: Winter Farmhouse Cards

The soft blanket of snow that covered the yard last week is so beautiful and always makes me want to cozy up in my craft room and do a little creating.  Today I have two new cards to share with you using the Simple Stories Winter Farmhouse collection!

Jana Eubank Winter Farmhouse Cards 1 800

Not only is the Winter Farmhouse collection perfect for your winter projects, but they are lovely for your holiday creations as well! If you’re looking for a collection WITHOUT Santa and his elves, or you just want the versatility to bounce back-and-forth from holiday projects to winter projects, this collection is a great choice!

On this first card, I used the papers from the 6×8 paper pad to build up my background. I then layered up several of the Journal Bits & Pieces and added the adorable red house from the Chipboard Sticker Sheet. A sprinkling of deep yellow enamel dots adds a bit of shine.

I couldn’t help but feature the mitten banner from the Chipboard Stickers on this second card! They are so cozy and CUTE! Again, I used the 6×8 Paper Pad to build up my background and then added a cluster of Journal Bits & Pieces die cuts and a red chipboard house in the bottom right corner.

There’s nothing like creating cards on a snowy day as you listen to Christmas music and enjoy a mug of hot cocoa. These cards will be perfect to send as a holiday greeting or to warm up someone’s heart in January if they are feeling bogged down by the winter blues.

Echo Park Paper: Lost in Neverland Card Set

Faith, trust, and pixie dust! Set out on a card making adventure with the Lost In Neverland collection!  I sat at my desk to play with this collection and couldn’t stop. I have six “Darling” cards to share with you today.

Tinkerbell, herself, is here to take you on your magical journey! I cut her out using the Tinkerbell die set with shimmer cardstocks by Carta Bella Paper. I doubled up her vellum wings to allow her to flutter about.

The Peter Pan Ephemera tag is captain of the Jolly Roger on this card. Just use your imagination and think happy thoughts and you will be on your way to dreamland!

For this card I created a waterfall of circles with a scene. I love how you can almost follow the story line as you follow each picture from top to bottom.

I anchored the Lost Boy sticker, along with the teepee, on a series of concentric punched circles for a simple, yet striking design. A sprinkling of enamel dots adds dimension and shine.

I used the Hello Baby Boy Shining Stars embossing folder to emboss a night sky on Navy Shimmer cardstock for the background of this card. I love how the Darling children are holding hands as they experience pixie dust for the first time. A tiny, chipboard Tinkerbell provides a never-ending supply of fun.

Stacked, die cut rectangles anchor the characters on this fun card. How cute is Sleeping Nana drifting in the top left corner?!

Echo Park Paper: Pirate Tales Card Trio

Ahoy there, Matey! I’m up on the Echo Park Paper Blog today with a trio of cards created with the Pirate Tales collection. This collection is so fabulous with its variety of freebooters ready to head out on their next adventure!

Jana Eubank Echo Park Paper Pirate Tales Card Trio 1 800

This first card features the Skulls & Cross Bones Die Set. I placed it on the helm fussy-cut from the 4×4 Journaling Cards. I added the “Believe” word across the bones, and then placed the “X Marks the Spot” sticker below for the sentiment. The Stitched Rectangle die cut frames the everything with a nice pop of yellow.

This second card features a pirate that was fussy-cut from the 6×4 Journaling Cards paper. The bracket die cut from the Ephemera Pack makes a nice scene for the background. I added a few chipboard pieces along the bottom of the die cut and then tucked a ship (created with the Pirate Ship Die Set) behind the left edge.

This last card features a young pirate (fussy-cut from the 3×4 Journaling Cards paper) dreaming about his next treasure hunt. I fussy-cut a banner from the Constellations paper to go across the top and added texture to the solid background paper using the Mermaid Scales embossing folder from the Mermaid Dreams collection.

These cards were so much fun to put together! They will be perfect for giving to the boys and men in my life. Have a great day!
