Cat Tail Sunrise, Wrapped Stitch Rectangles and Halloween Sideshow by Jean Okimoto

 

P1010763

Cat Tail Sunrise creates a sunset backdrop for a Challenge inspiration card  - and the Halloween Sideshow Clear Stamp Set and the Die Set has the perfect designs to complete the scene.  Hello, Jean Okimoto here, with a simple fall card for you.  It's really beginning to feel like fall in Seattle, spiders and all,

Cut half of a Persimmon Notecard with the 3.5" x 4.75" Wrapped Stitch Rectangle.  Cut Cat Tail Sunrise from black cardstock - leave about 1.5" of extra cardstock at the bottom.  Trim the bottom with the same Wrapped Stitch Rectangle

Cut Mango Distressed Dots cardstock with 1.5" Circle Basics die.  Stamp the spider - from the Halloween Sideshow Clear Stamp Set - at the "9:00 position" of the circle with Onyx Black VersaFine.  

Stamp the jolly pumpkin trio - also from the Halloween Sideshow set - on bright orange cardstock.  Heat-set the ink.  Cut them with the coordinating Halloween Sideshow dies.  Color the center with a marker.

Attach the diecuts to a Licorice Notecard - use foam dots for the pumpkins.  Add tiny copper sequins.

I love to keep my Memory Box dies handy - and organized - with curtain rings. You already know they're great for the Circle, Square and Rectangle Basics - and the specialty sets like Wrapped Stitch Rectangles.  Use them for the "open" die sets like Halloween Sideshow too.  They're secure and won't fall off - and it's easy  to preview a diecut by keeping the die on the curtain ring and holding it over your stamped image or printed paper.  

I'm headed to Impress today - my little stay-cation is almost over and I "need" to pick up a few new items for my Fall Quarter classes there.  Here's a quick list of the new classes - join us if you're in the area.  We have a large class area, the biggest and latest collection of papercrafting supplies for your fall and holiday projects - and a creative store team to help you with product selection and designs.  (They sell those curtain rings too!)
