Out on a limb Halloween Card

I made this card for a Halloween swap. It features the Out on a Limb stamp set from the Holiday Mini Catalog. The card base Basic Black, layered with Pumpkin Pie card stock textured with the Stripes Textured Embossing Folder for the Big Shot.

Next, I opted to stamp the hanging spiders (also from Out on a Limb) in Black ink over top of First Edition Specialty DSP. To give it more texture, I distressed the edges with the Distressing tool in the Cutter Kit.

The black flocked paper is from Mocha Morning Specialty DSP. The package contains, among other designs, 2 styles of flocked paper. It’s really pretty and elegant. This is cut to 3″ x 4″.

I stamped the branch on Very Vanilla card stock with Early Espresso ink. Then, using the stampamajig, I stamped the witch in Black craft ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I colored in the witch and the moon with Copic Markers, then added dazzling diamonds glitter to the moon with 2-way glue pen. The “Boo” sentiment is from Tiny Tags.

Using the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch, I punched out the stamped image and distressed the edges with the Cutter Kit, then sponged So Saffron ink around the edges with a sponge dauber. To give a little more sparkle, I sprayed the card stock with shimmer spray (made with shimmer paint and 70% rubbing alcohol).

I added another strip of Pumpkin Pie card stock embossed with the Stripes Textured Embossing Folder across the front behind the focal image to finish off the card.

 

Pretty Pear {Faith in Nature}

Here, I made use of some distressing techniques. The stamp set featured is Faith in Nature, one of the Hostess Sets. I stamped the pear image with Chocolate chip craft ink on Whisper White and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Using the aquapainter, I colored in the pear with Lucky Limeade and Calypso Coral ink. The “thank you” sentiment is also from the same stamp set.

Next, I tore across the top corner of the card stock and used a sponge dauber with Creamy Caramel ink to distress the image layer. It was layered on Calypso Coral card stock, distressed in the same way as the image layer.

The card base is Crumb Cake card stock, layered with Chocolate Chip that was distressed along the edges using the distressing tool. A torn piece of  Well Worn DSP was also added to the card front. Since that paper is distressed looking, I didn’t need to do much to it other than tearing it and sponging it a bit. Finally, two orange glimmer brads finish off the card.

Calypso Coral Mojo Monday Sketch

Today’s card was based on this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Mojo195. The base is new In Color Calypso Coral (available July 1st). I layered it with Chocolate Chip card stock and one of the patterns in the new Flirtatious Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Across the front, I used three pieces of Chocolate Chip Scallop Dot Ribbon. In the center, the doily is from the Flirtatious Specialty DSP as well. There are two die cut sheets of doilies in the package of DSP. The colors are Pumpkin Pie and Melon Mambo.

To coordinate with the colors of my card, I used one of the Pumpkin Pie doilies, but I turned it over and brayered the back with Calypso Coral ink (the backs are white). Behind that, I layered a chocolate chip circle punched with the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch. On top, I stamped “thanks” from Thank You Kindly with Versamark and heat embossed with White Embossing Powder. The stamped circle is made with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch. I outlined the circle with dots using the White Gel Pen.
