Video – Costume quartet

Hello everybody! I’ve made another Halloween card in my new video. Maybe there will be another Halloween card on my Instagram feed this week, but this will be the last Halloween themed video of the year.

I wanted to make a cheery card that is pretty easy to make, but still looks awesome.

In this video I go more in depth about the how and why of this card. For example, how I decided where each of the costumed kids would be placed, what my color palette will be and which adhesives to use.

Below is an overview of the other supplies I used. I’m not showing the obvious ones like scissors and such since I think that speaks for itself, but of course if you have any questions feel free to ask.

Video – Halloween wreath

Hello everybody! Although Halloween week 2020 is over, I’m back with another Halloween card to inspire you!

I made a Halloween wreath in two different styles. One is a little more classic and ‘scary’, the other one is cheery and cute.

You could easily adapt this design to make it a fall or Christmas themed card too!

Video – Hello fall

Hi everybody! Last week I shared my first card for the Lawn Fawnatics Guest Designer spot, this week I’m sharing my second!

You can check out the current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge here. It involves a mood board with Halloween/fall inspiration. Since my first card was Halloween themed, I decided on making my second card fall themed!

Since the latest release from Lawn Fawn featured the Car Critters Christmas Add-on, I got some inspiration to use the Car Critter set for a fall card!

The little critters bought some pumpkins to make pumpkin soup at home. While driving home, they took a wrong turn but they ended up in the most beautiful field while the sun is setting!

Again I took inspiration from the clouds and the leaves of the mood board. I placed the colors into sections (red in the middle, orange and yellow on the top half of the card and green on the bottom part of the card). That resulted in the clouds being orange and giving it that sunset feel!

Video – Halloween week #5 – Mysterious jungle

Hi all! This post is about the last video and also the final addition to my Halloween week 2020.

For most of my other cards I used the ghosts from ‘Booyah’ so with this one I wanted to do something different. That’s why I dressed up the ‘Critters in the Jungle’ from Lawn Fawn so it looks like they are celebrating Halloween in the jungle… Adorable, right?!

I went for a purple an pink color scheme, but I added green as a pop of color. I visually spread those out on the scene to make it pleasing to look at.

Below is an overview of the other supplies I used. I’m not showing the obvious ones like scissors and such since I think that speaks for itself, but of course if you have any questions feel free to ask.

I want to thank you for joining me in Halloween week 2020! It was so much work to make all the video’s and get everything done in time, but I’m so happy with the result!

Come back tomorrow for another video post. It’s not Halloween themed, but I promise it’s also a good one.

Video – Halloween week #4 – Halloween snow globe

Hello everybody! This post is about the fourth video (of the fifth card) of my Halloween week 2020!

Every year I treat myself to some supplies I can use for Christmas cards. This year I decided to finally go for the ‘Ready, Set, Snow’ set from Lawn Fawn.

I figured this set would be cool for all kinds of scenes, not only winter ones. So that’s how I came up with a Halloween themed snow globe and I’m loving it!

I used the costumed kids from ‘Costume Party’ from Lawn Fawn to accompany the globe I made for this card. I kept the colors into a simple scheme with blues and purples, added some sparkly Nuvo drops and voila… A lovely Halloween snow globe card!

Come back tomorrow for my last video and final card for Halloween week 2020! It’s another fun one that I’m going to share with you and I’m so excited!

Halloween week – Card #2 – Trick or Treat!

Hi everybody! No video today, but I do share this card with you for some Halloween inspiration… Also, there is a free cut file available!

I used the ‘Cloudy Stencil’ and ‘Costume Party’ from Lawn Fawn to create this simple card. I think the houses look great in this scene and together with the gorgeous sunset clouds it still is a spectacular card to send!

I worked hard to make the cut file as good as I can. It includes the houses as a silhouette, the houses with the windows cut out and a piece you can layer behind that to let the houses light up.

Also, I’ve put in different sizes of the houses so they will fit different sized cards. European, US, slimline, portrait or landscape, all is covered.
It’s made in a way that the base is slightly larger so it can be hand cut by size or with a die. Like in my example, I’ve used the double stitched rectangle to also cut out the base of the houses.

Here’s another card I made with cut file:

I used the first slimline set from CarlijnDesign to make a slimline. The images are from ‘Me and My Dragon’ and ‘Dragon Wishes’ from Mama Elephant. I also used my free mountain cut file I shared earlier!

I make these free cut files to give something to the crafting community. That’s why I also teamed up with some people from the community to give you even more inspiration! Here it comes!

Steph (@whirledofpapercraft) made this wonderful card with the most amazing sky! The houses really pop on that sky!

Aline (@aline_unat) made this gorgeous scene! She made the houses smaller (that’s possible, because the cut file is a .svg!) to be super cute on this card! Do you see that gorgeous sky?!

Meagan (@scrappygolucky) made this super pretty scrapbook page! I love how she used the houses to decorate the background!

Well, here it comes! The free cut file!
If you want to share it too, please share the link to this blog post and don’t share the file itself.

It’s definitely not mandatory to do so, but if you like my content you can consider to donate (whatever you can miss!) so I can keep improving my content. Thank you.

Enjoy the houses and be sure to share the card you made with it with me on Instagram (@peterstreasury).

Come back tomorrow for the next video of my Halloween week!

Video – Halloween week #3 – Magical Halloween

Hello everybody! I’m excited to share the third video (of the fourth card) of my Halloween week!

It’s another card using the ‘Booyah’ set from Lawn Fawn. I really is such a fun and versatile set. This time I made slimline out of it, since my card idea was; a spooky castle on top of a mountain / high hill. And a slimline is perfect for that!

I sketched the whole card before I start making it, but I didn’t think of any colors I wanted to use till I started. Choosing blues for the trees and hills seemed odd at first, but I went for it and I’m happy I did! It became my favorite part of the card.

This taught me to try something different once in a while and push through even though if I’m doubting it. As it turns out with this card, it’s something I really like!

Visit my Instagram tomorrow to see the fifth card of this week! There will be another blogpost & video the day after that.

Halloween week – Card #1 – Ghostly hightea

Hey ghoul friend! No video today, but I do share this card with you for some Halloween inspiration.

The ghosts on this card where another experiment from me. This time, I clear embossed them on white card stock. It’s a little better to see in real life, but they turned out awesome!

Earlier I also stamped them in light grey (and colored them light grey as well) and I did them on vellum with white heat embossed lines.
Last year I even colored them light pink! They are really fun to experiment with, so definitely give it a try too!

I originally had a different idea for this card. But when I was working on it, the idea grew to big so I decided to split it up into two card ideas. This is one of them!
The ghosts organized a high tea, they all did their part to have a fun afternoon together. So cute, right?

Video – Halloween week #2 – Spooky house

Hi all! Welcome back for the second card of my Halloween week! I hope you enjoyed the first one and that you are hungry for more.

This card started out with the ghost from Hello Sweetums. I just started coloring three of them, with each a different colored hat. I put it aside for moment to work on another card. In the meanwhile a new crafty order came in including the Lawn Fawn Build-a-House set with the Halloween add-on. So then it was clear to me what I wanted to do!

I have to be honest; the Build-a-House set didn’t really speak to me for a long time. I added the Halloween add-on to my cart because of the cobweb, ghosts and spider. And then I looked at examples for the house again and I had to admit that the Halloween houses did it for me. So I ordered Build-a-House anyway and I’m happy I did.

I really enjoyed making this card. The background is gorgeous and so much fun to make. The house gives you a lot of room to pick out the perfect colors to fit to your liking. All together it’s loads of fun!

Visit my Instagram tomorrow to see the third card of this week! There will be another blogpost & video the day after that.

Video – Halloween week #1 -Silly ghosts

Hi everybody! Welcome to the start of my Halloween week!
I love making Halloween cards so much, that I decided to share my joy with you and make a Halloween week out of it!

This means that I’ve designed 7 cards and there will be a video for 5 of them!
We start of with a bang… The first video is a card that I designed as a Lawn Fawnatics Guest Designer for the new Lawn Fawnatics Challenge! I’m so happy that I was asked and I’m thrilled to share my first card with you! Keep your eyes out for a second card…

I want to share a bit of backstory for the card I created for the challenge. It’s based on a Reveal Wheel card I made two years ago when I visited my very good friend Rosana. We had a crafty afternoon together. Here is what the card looked like:

When I was thinking of what my card design for the challenge would be, I figured I wanted to redo this one. My cardmaking skills have gone up so it would be fun to see the improvement, but the card also gives me a warm feeling thinking of that crafty afternoon.

Also Rosana is the one that got me hooked on Lawn Fawn (and with that, cardmaking) so this card was perfect as a base for my new design.

Here is the card I made for the challenge!

The challenge involves the following mood board:

This picture is owned by Lawn Fawnatics. You can find more details about this challenge on the blogpost I linked at the beginning of this post!

I kept the same base lay-out for my card but I adjusted the whole theme to fit the moodboard.

I took inspiration from the grey clouds and with the use of the Cloudy Stencil and Distress Oxide ‘Weathered Wood’ I made my own version of that.

From there on I decided to keep the whole scene grey and use the colors from the leaves in the mood board to color all my images. I used the darker colors for the pumpkins and the brighter colors for the accessories of the ghosts.
