How To Create a Fall Side Table Decoration for Thanksgiving

by LeeAnn McKinney

Hi there friends, Lee Ann here with a fun fall Thanksgiving Home Decor project. In this video, I tried StazOn Studio Glaze in several different colors and I was hoping to make the house a little fun. We do not have a lot of space (literal tiny home) and so anything I make needs to be condensed or small. I chose to pick up a 5″ x 7″ photo frame and play with the StazOn Studio Glaze with coloring in pumpkins, leaves, and other stamped images. StazOn Studio Glaze is a water-based acrylic product and oh it was fun. I plan to make more for the Christmas holidays.

How To Create A Rich Purple Tone-On-Tone Halloween Party Invitation

How To Create A Rich Purple Tone-On-Tone Halloween Party Invitation

by LeeAnn McKinney

Hi there friends and fellow crafters, it’s LeeAnn and we are getting a bit inky today with StazOn ink pads and embossing powder. Making this Halloween Party invitation was fun and easy and the techniques used here can be used with any theme.

Using Clear Mboss just made the gravestone and skeleton images stamped on the front pop, not only with shine but texture as well. Since StazOn is a mixed media ink the embossed surface was color-matched with the background for a great tone-on-tone effect.

Quick & Easy Projects: How to Make a Fall Card with One Ink Pad

by LeeAnn McKinney

Greetings crafty friends, today I am using my FAVORITE ink pad — Kaleidacolor. This 5-color water-based dye ink pad is very useful for a basic crafting project because it offers a variety of colors and the sliding palette feature gives you a lot of options. The ink pad has a lever to slide each ink pad together and then to pull apart for storing.

To create a beautiful background, just ink up the brayer, and roll it all over the card stock depositing the color down, you can keep going over it multiple times if desired to really get a great blend.

I then stamp out my sentiment and used On Point Glue to adhere falling leaves. I applied three dots of Gold Pico Embellishment to complete this project. I only use Kromekote Glossy Cardstock for this technique and it comes out perfect every time.
