Hi Everyone! So how was everyone’s day? Mine was spent catching up on some computer work, a few house things and of course the most important, crafting. With that being said, I had a card idea in my head today and decided to try and see if it would turn out, and well would you believe it has, usually that never happens, so I was very pleased.
In Australia we rarely celebrate Halloween, although it is starting to find it’s way into our lives, as large businesses are starting to sell some products. Although, myself do not celebrate it, as it was never around when I was a kid, I think it could have been fun if it had though,anyways, I decided to make a card and maybe send it to one of my overseas friends :)
I created the card by first cutting a piece of white card stock and blending Ranger, Distress Ink, Black Soot, covering the entire piece of card stock. Next, taking the Hero Arts, Small Metal Flourish stamp, I stamped it twice over the card stock stamping it with some Archival Ink, Jet Black to form what would eventually look like a gate. I added a Hero Arts sentiment from the Cuckoo stamp set to the top of the card stock and set aside. I then went into my digital designs on my computer and opening up the digital set, Thanksgiving from Hero Arts I downloaded the pumpkin that was in this set and copied and pasted it several times in Word, also resizing some of the pumpkin, once I printed them out, I coloured them in with my Copics and cut them out. Next, I took some purple card stock and cut to size to form a card and stamped the Hero Arts, Flourish Background stamp inked with Hero Arts, Soft Lilac ink over the front of the card. Taking the stamped card stock, I adhered it to the front of the card using foam dimensionals and at the bottom I added the pumpkins also adhering them with more foam dimensionals. Lastly, I added some black rhinestones opposite the sentiment to finish the card.
Here is another view of the card:
Here are the Copics I used to colour the pumpkins:
Here are the products I used to create the card:
I really enjoyed making this card and was excited when it came together how I imagined.
I hope you enjoy viewing the card tonight and I will return tomorrow with more for you to feast your eyes on.
