Circle Web Collage, House Trio and Whimsy Cat by Jean Okimoto


Whimsy Cat joins the new Circle Web Collage and House Trio on another fun card today. Whimsy Cat's a big favorite among the great dies in our Halloween 2017 Collection - and it's easy to see why!  

Hi and happy weekend - Jean Okimoto here with a bit of a change from my usual less-is-more theme.  Halloween is my annual "excuse"  to layer a whole of bunch of diecuts on a card - and add sequins too.  These pretty brushed gold beauties are from the new Birch Press collection of sequins.  These are from the Not So Heavy Metal set of brushed gold, bronzy-copper, tiny twinkly gold, star and heart sequins - and gold glitter.  It's a set for all seasons!


Cut the largest Stitched Oval from dark kraft cardstock.  Cut it again with Woodland Oval.  

Cut Circle Web Collage from textured white cardstock.  Trim it to fit between the trees.

Cut Whimsy Cat from dark orange cardstock.  Attach Scor-Tape behind the eyes and nose and brush Martha Stewart Crafts Onyx Glitter onto the adhesive in the cutouts.

Attach adhesive label or sticker paper behind a scrap of newspaper.  I used the stocklists page of the Journal for the tiny print and neat columns.  Cut the houses and their trim details.  Assemble the houses - trim the roof section of the center house so it'll fit below the web.  I left the doors "open" - as though the spiders entered through the windows and everyone ran outside!

Attach the diecuts to a Licorice Notecard.  It's easier if you attach the oval first - just along the outer edges.  Tuck and attach the web and houses under the trees.  Attach Whimsy Cat with foam dots.  Add those pretty brushed gold sequins from Birch Press!

Great card! That Woodland Oval die is really neat!

Very confusing... are we supposed to leave "another" comment on the previous post for another chance to win? I thought the rule for winning blog hop/blog blitz prizes was always a limit of one comment per person per post.

Love that woodland oval. And your newsprint houses. Hugz
