Happy Friday, y’all! Hope you’ve had a good week – I have! I have some exciting news (well, it is for me, at least!) but I’m going to wait to share it on Sunday!
What could it be….what could it be!? You’ll just have to check back on Sunday! 🙂
My card today is a quick one to make – it really leans heavily on Halloween Night Designer Paper and the fun Cookie Cutter Builder punch. I used the Cookie Cutter Halloween stamp set and a sentiment from Spooky Fun. Take a look-see:
My design was inspired by the Freshly Made Sketches challenge #258:
And my color palette is from The Paper Players #316:
I started by SNAILing a piece of Halloween Night DSP to a Wild Wasabi mat for the card front. Then I did a second, smaller panel with a different design, and SNAILd it to the first panel. The top panel is a piece of Whisper White card stock, that I embossed in the Brick Wall TIEF, matted on Wild Wasabi and SNAILd it to the card front.
I used yet another design of the Halloween Night paper to make the vertical banner strip. I used my Paper Snips to cut the banner ends on the DSP and the Wild Wasabi mat and used some Liquid Glue to adhere them together and then to the Brick Wall-Embossed panel.
The sentiment, from the Spooky Fun set, is stamped in Pumpkin Pie on Whisper White and matted on Wild Wasabi (can you see a Wild Wasabi trend here??). Then I popped it over the other panels with a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals.
My Cookie Cutter Halloween Mummy is stamped in Wild Wasabi on Whisper White. Then I used a Blender Pen to add some more Wild Wasabi ink to shade his mummy wrappings. I also added just a touch of Crumb Cake to “age” it a bit. Then I punched him out with the matching Cookie Cutter Builder Punch and used some Liquid Glue to adhere him – sliding him under my popped-up sentiment.
The last piece is the bats. I stamped them – they’re in the Cookie Cutter Halloween set – in Basic Black Archival Ink on Whisper White. Then I fussy cut them – yes, a little persnickety. I adhered one to the end of the sentiment banner with Liquid Glue and the other two I popped on with little pieces of Stampin’ Dimensional.
Little. Tiny. Pieces!
And that was it for the card front.
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Spooky Fun bats on the front…
Et Voila! Easy peasy! I wasn’t sure about this color combination when I first started this card – I kept having flashbacks to some unfortunate plaid pants I wore in Junior High – but it turns out to be a suitably spooky and Halloween-y color scheme! And how cute is that little Cookie Cutter Halloween mummy and his bats? Hope you like! 🙂
