And do not forget to head over to the Xyron blog for MORE inspiration AND a giveaway! I heard a rumour that it might be a sticker maker?!??!?!

Designer Shaunte Wadley is up first with some mixing and matching of Tim Holtz Kraft Core Season Impressions, Kraft-Core and Fancy Pants Core Impressions. And see that super cool strip of pumpkins? Shante used her 2.5 Sticker maker so keep scrolling to check out easy it is to adhere that with Xyron tools.



How is easy is that???


It’s like magic…it’s sticky and NO MESS!


Here’s a close up of it finished with the die cut layers:


THEN after you sand with your Sand it Gadget, take your chalks and apply desired color for a really cool look! Not sure if you saw Friday’s post but Designer Kate Nolan Denham did that on her layout, too, but with some Black Magic..super cool!


And next up is Designer Vivian Keh working the Black Magic!  Just love how she chose Black Magic for her Thanksgiving card. For some step by step photos check out her blog HERE.

For this card, I used cardstock from our fantastic “Black Magic” Collection.  Since I started playing with this stuff a month or so ago, I literally have not been able to stop crafting with it.  The results are always interesting and unique.  I sanded both my dry embossed background and my paper punched leaves, following that by applying a little pigment ink over the raised areas in a variety of autumn leaf tones.  I used the Xyron 1.5 in Create-A-Sticker machine to adhere the leaves – totally nuts about this tool because it is incredibly fast and convenient for adhering tiny pieces, like die-cut alphas or these leaves, to papercrafted projects.  No sticky, messy, glue-y fingers!  I used the Xyron Mega Runner to adhere the card front to a slightly larger card base – nice strong hold.
Some details:
And how amazing is this detail and all this color!? Very same concept as Shaunte using chalks but you can use ink, too!
