All week long we are playing with Authentique papers! How awesome is that?

We are so excited for this week and trust me when I say our papers are a match made in heaven!  But seeing is believing, right? So make sure you stick around all week long for some inpsiration and a giveaway of course!

Make sure you check out the Authentique BLOG for more ideas and a giveaway  AND their complete lines of gorgeous papers HERE.

Today we have some THRILLING designs for you! {wink, wink}  First up is Tracy Gruber with a cool layout. Like Tracy, I am OBSESSED with the 12×12 Details Stickers. Tracy uses them to move your eye around  the page in addition to the pieces of patterned paper and Black Magic and Vintage Core’dinations.


Core’dinations Black Magic
Core’dinations Vintage Collection
Core’dinations Neutrals paper pad (base)
Authentique Thrilling Collection pack
Tim Holtz & Ranger Black Soot Distress Ink
Tombow 3D Foam Tabs
Sand It Gadget
Dust Buddy
Cuttlebug Seeing Spots embossing folder
Darice Circles embossing folder

And next up Clare Busewell with a deliciously, thrilling card! This pumpkin is too cute to spook don’t you think?

Draw simple pumpkin shape, trace onto card base (excluding stem) and cut out. Trace pumpkin sections onto Superstition, Antidote and Mystic 12×12 papers from Thrilling Collection by Authentique. Emboss Vintage Collection cardstock, sand with Sand-It Gadget, wipe with Dust Buddy and trace pumpkin section onto it. Cut out sections from patterned papers and cardstock, ink edges with Distress inks and paper-piece onto card base. Trace stem onto Tim Holtz and Ranger Distress Collection, sand edges and ink with Distress ink. Attach stem to top. Add sticker tag from “details” stickers from Thrilling Collection to piece of cardstock, cut out, ink edges and adhere to card with silicone glue. Add bow, to finish.

And next up, a quick tutorial on how I created a fun candle and card set using the new Smooth Bookmarks(Bright), Black Magic, David Tutera Cardmaking cardbase and a Darice embossing folder. This witch feet embossing folder is AWESOME!  OH..and some Thrilling papers, of course!  Honestly, Whamy from the Black Magic Collection is the BEST cardstock  to have for Halloween. The Core is purple!!! Oh and how much fun are the Queen & Co Rox rhinestones on her boots?

Cut the little nub off:


Then cut it in half. The to trick in making it look like it goes around the front is  cutting it in half and sticking each end under the journal spot on the front.  Don’t forget to emboss! Even though they are smooth you can still emboss them.


And the back…you may be wondering why it doesn’t go all the way around but I wanted it that way since I punched the papers and used pints where they meet.  And I am not sure if you can tell but one side of the tag is embossed and the other is debossed . The twine is May Arts, of course!
