Dia de los Muertos Card – 2017

Of course I had to make a Dia de los Muertos card for Offspring3. And I couldn’t use the card I created for the Fusion Card Challenge last week, she would see that here on the blog before the actual day.

The sentiment here translates to “He who lives with hope dies happy”, and was printed on Neenah from my computer.

Offspring3 has given me several sugar skulls this year. The ceramic skull is from Oaxaca, Mexico, and the panel art is from Target $1 aisle (our favorite place to browse!).

Supplies: Stamp – Simon Says Stamp, paper – Doodlebug Designs, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Tempting Turquoise, Stardream Metallic Onyx, inks – Copic B02, V04, Y18, YG06, YR04, VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Simon Says Stamp (skull), Spellbinders (circle), Taylored Expressions (banner), sequins – Doodlebug Designs, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.


Happy Halloween 2017

I really love this cute Doodlebug Designs Boos & Brews paper!

After I assembled this, I realized I should have added texture to the purple-ish band. DRAT. Should have used an embossing folder. I added black pearls and googly eyes.

Supplies: Stamp – Stampin’ Up!, paper – Doodlebug Designs Boos & Brews, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, Taylored Expressions Plum Punch, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, punch – Stampin’ Up!, black pearls – Swarovski, googly eyes – Darice, embossing powder – Ranger clear, organdy ribbon – ClearBags.

Dia de los Muertos Card – Fusion Striped Wreath Challenge

I haven’t participated in a Fusion Card Challenge in a while. (I seem to have fallen out of the challenge cycle, but that could be a post in itself!) This challenge just jumped out at me – I had it designed in my head in just a few seconds.

AND, thankfully, my execution matched that original vision! WOOT!

The sentiment translates to “There is more time than life”. (printed on Neenah Classic Crest from my computer) Shout out to Offspring3 for providing me a selection of Dia de los Muertos sentiments.
