Hello again, Blog world! It is the start of my favorite time of year–fall! I’m still waiting for cooler weather, but I am already playing with some of the new fall products from Stampin’ Up! This year there are some really cute Halloween stamp sets to choose from, and I just had to use two of them for this card!
I started with this Sketch Challenge:
I knew I wanted to use that cute little witch. I have fond memories of dressing up as a witch on multiple occasions, lol! I used a blender pen to color the image, and circle framelits to cut out the black glimmer paper base (love it!!) and the image. For the pumpkin, I masked off the handle using tape:
which works really well, unless you are not paying attention, and you forget to take the tape off before stamping:
Now, I have to confess that I used my old favorite, Pumpkin Pie, to stamp the image, even though I was using Tangelo Twist throughout the rest of the card. Tangelo twist ink just made the pumpkin look too muddy to me.
I colored in the eyes, mouth and stripes to make them pop, and cut it out with my handy Boo to You framelits. SO fun!!! I am seriously like a kid in a candy store with all these fun holiday bundles!
I used the washi tape punch to cut out the sentiment, and the banner triple punch for the banner–makes those banners SO much easier!!
Here’s the finished card. It was a lot of fun to make–now I’m really getting in the mood for FALL!!!
