Concord Grape, Twisted Citron and Wilted Violet don't sound very Halloween-ish - but combine them with Whimsy Cats and the Circle Web Collage and they will be! Hi, Jean Okimoto here, with a few more Halloween tricks and techniques.
Cut the 3.5" x 4.75" Wrapped Stitch Rectangle from white cardstock. Cut the rectangle with the new Circle Web Collage. Press a piece of blue painters tape lightly against the backside of the collage to remove any wispy little cardstock remnants that would show up against the dark purple Concord Grape Notecard.
Stamp the triangles from the Bird Sanctuary Clear Stamps Set with Distress Oxide Wilted Violet. Stamp the dots (from the same stamp set) with Twisted Citron. I love the bonus circles, triangles and diamond shapes that are included in this great stamp set.
Cut Whimsy Cat twice from orange and black cardstock. Layer them - a bit offset - for a shadowy effect and to add even more personality to their friendly faces.
Stamp the spiders from the Halloween Sideshow Clear Stamps Set with VersaFine Onyx Black. Color the centers with a black marker. Matching black inks can be challenging - a black Sharpie is a perfect match for Onyx Black
Attach the diecuts to the card - use foam dots for the black cat. Add green gem stickers.
There's a lot happening on this card - but I hope the repetition of circles, ovals and triangles makes it look cohesive. What do you think?
If you're in the Seattle area, join us for the BOO! class at Impress on October 14th. We're making 5 cards and a little treat wrapper for your favorite kids (or adults!). We'll combine great dies from the stash with some of the latest designs from the Fall 2017 Collection. See the Impress collection of Memory Box and Poppystamps dies and stamps here.
