Halloween Card (I Love Math Challenge #7 mid-inspiration)


Hello everyone!

There are seventeen more days to join the seventh I Love Math Challenge. :o) If you're new to my blog, you can find more about the challenge and previous challenges here.

The theme for this challenge is SEVEN: use number 7 or seven something on your project.

Seven is an odd number and fourth prime number
An odd number is a number that cannot be divided evenly with 2. 
prime number can be divided, without a remainder, only by itself and by 1.



Today I'm sharing my inspiration card for the challenge. I made this one layer, Halloween Card.


I stamped 7 bats and a sentiment from Jane's Doodles 'Haunted House' stamp set directly on a front panel of a white top folded card base. I cut a circle from a cardstock paper scrap and masked the part where I wanted the Moon to be. I blended Distress Inks Wilted Violet and Dusty Concord on the panel and blended edges with Distress Ink Black Soot. When I was satisfied with my Halloween sky, I removed mask and left card to dry a bit on air. As a finishing touch, I coated bats with clear Wink of Stella.


Card dimensions: 95 mm x 127 mm  (3 3/4" x 5")
List of supplies :
  • Jane's Doodles 'Haunted House' stamp set
  • white cardstock paper (card base, circle stencil)

    I Love Math Challenge #7


    Hello everyone!

    Today is a World Cardmaking Day and time for a new I Love Math ChallengeThis is the seventh challenge. If you're new to my blog, you can find more about the challenge and previous challenges here.


    The theme for this challenge is SEVEN: use number 7 or seven something on your project.

    Seven is an odd number and fourth prime number
    An odd number is a number that cannot be divided evenly with 2. 
    prime number can be divided, without a remainder, only by itself and by 1.


    A very talented designer, primary school teacher is joining Neha and me in this challenge. It's Valentina Bizjak of Barvito malo mesto, amazing crafter and blogger, dear friend from Slovenia.

    Valentina supports this challenge from it's beginning. She participated in most challenges with her beautiful creations. I'm very happy that she accepted my invitation to be a Guest Designer for this challenge.

    Here is what Valentina said:
    "It was May when my crafty friend Milka invited me to join her and Neha at I Love Math Challenge. Milka hosting this challenge where she combined two of her greatest passions: Math and Crafts. I was honored and really happy to be invited since this is my first time to become a Guest Designer. So thank you Milka. This was really my lucky chance but also a great responsibility. And I truly admire crafts and cards of both girls. This is such an exciting and funny challenge that it wouldn’t be right to say no. Eventhough I’m not a Math person, at all. I’m still using my fingers and my phone for simple operation. I know this is kind of awkward but that’s me. :)
    I was hoping that the challenge won’t be so difficult. And it wasn’t. Number 7. I immediately got an idea of what I’m going to create.
    I’m a primary school teacher and reading fairy tales is my job and passion at the same time. So what could be better to put one of the greatest fairy tales into a card. And I just got the right stamps to do that. I created a fairy tale scene on a card with peek a boo windows. Do you already know who is behind the windows? :) " 


    And here is SUPER ADORABLE Valentina's card! LOVE LOVE LOVE!! :o)


    Great design, super sweet scene, beautiful colors... I'm blown away how Valentina incorporated a fairy tale in the challenge. AWESOME!!! Can't wait to see what's behind those windows. :o) Jump over to Valentina's blog and find out what her card is hiding, how does it fit to the challenge theme and other details about her card. :o)


    Here is Neha's AMAZING take on the challenge. :o)


    When Neha sent me photo of her card I was blown away (I always am). Gorgeous card, brilliant CAS design, beautiful colors!! I love her take on the challenge!! Seven days in a week as focal point, number 7 at a background and highlighted number 7 in a sentiment... LOVE it!!! :o) Jump over to Neha's blog and find out more details about her card. :o)


    And my project... I created a card today, but not on time to catch a daylight to take good photos. I couldn't catch a color as it is and I'm not satisfied at all, so I won't share it today. I'll share my card as mid-inspiration project instead. Stop by my blog in two weeks, October 21st, when I'll be sharing my card. :o)


    I love that three of us approached the challenge differently. Valentina incorporated fairy-tale in the theme, Neha used number 7 and week days on her card and me.... Just a little hint: I stamped seven same animals on my card. :o) Thank you Ladies for joining me in this challenge and inspiration. :o)


    Now it's your turn...

    Create any kind of project, whatever you like, but your project must have number 7 or seven something on it. It doesn't have to be as a focal point, but it has to be recognizable on a photo what it is. Any design is welcome.

    SNOWone Like You Card (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)


    Happy Friday! :o)

    Today is my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles and I made this CAS (clean and simple), SNOWone Like You Card.


    To create this card I used stamps from two super cute winter themed Jane's Doodles stamp sets: an image from 'Winter Wishes' and a sentiment from 'Winter Fun' stamp set.

    I stamped a penguin on a top folded white card base and below him the sentiment. I colored the penguin with a black fibre-tip pen and left the card base aside.

    I stamped another penguin on a watercolor paper and colored him in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. I dried the penguin, fussy cut him and traced edges with black fibre-tip pen. I softened the penguin on a soft working mat using stylus ball. This curled the penguin a bit (it's cool as it gives a bit of dimension to the image). I glued the penguin on the card base over the 'black' penguin.

    Then I embellished my card with enamel dots. As you can see, I LOVE enamel dots. :o) They are my favorite embellishment. Sometimes, I just can't stop adding them. :o)

    As a finishing touch, I highlighted the penguin and the sentiment using white gel pen.


    Card dimensions: 95 mm x 127 mm (3 3/4" x 5")
    List of supplies:
      • Jane's Doodles 'Winter Wishes' stamp set (image)

      After The Rain Card (LMMS Inspiration)


      Hi everyone! :o)


      This is my third post today. If you missed previous two, just scroll down or follow direct links here and here.


      It's Little Miss Muffet Stamps Inspiration Week and I made this CAS (clean and simple), After The Rain Card. :o)


      To make this card, I was inspired with a card I created last year for LMMS, Voodoo Doll Monochrome Card.

      For my card I used super cute LMM's Forgotten Scraps 'Polka Dot Pals Rayne' digital stamp.

      I also used a free font I downloaded from dafont1942 Report Font. Love it!! :o)
      Important: Read licences before downloading.

      I made a layout on my computer (the image and quotation) and printed it out on a white cardstock base.

      I printed one more image on a watercolor paper and left it dry for a day. I colored the image in watercolor technique using Distress Inks.

      After drying, I fussy cut the image and traced edges with a black fibre-tip pen. I colored the image printed on the card base with the black fibre-tip pen and glued the colored image over it. Finished! :o)

      Card dimensions: 89 mm x 133 mm (3 1/2" x 5 1/4")

      List of supplies:

      I hope you liked my today's card and got inspired. For more inspiration, stop by the LMMS Challenge Blog. There's still time to join us in our current Challenge #172 - Anything Goes.
