Here’s a card I made last night for the SUDSOL (a Demo site) Chat & Challenge. We were given a sketch to follow and we could use any colors, stamp sets, etc. Since I’ve been working on class cards for C&C191-crHalloween, I chose the stamp set, Twick or Tweet from the new Holiday Mini catalog available September 1st.
The card base uses Pumpkin Pie card stock. The next two layers use papers from the Cast-A-Spell Designer Series Paper collection…a black on black print and a perfect plum print. These are wrapped with the Pumpkin Pie 1/2″ Striped Grosgrain ribbon and the 1/4″ Basic Black Grosgrain ribbon.
The images are stamped using Basic Black Classic Ink on Whisper White card stock. I stamped the chick twice on a scrap of Perfect Plum card stock, trimmed the bodies and placed over the images stamped on the Whisper White using SNAIL adhesive. The tiny pumpkins were colored using a Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Write marker.
I stamped the body of the pumpkin man on scrap Pumpkin Pie card stock, trimmed and adhered the same way as the chicks…same with the hat only I used Perfect Plum card stock. I accented all three pieces with a little 2-Way Glue and some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. All are layered on Basic Black and Pumpkin Pie card stock and attached using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Although I don’t usually show them, I always decorate the inside a bit, too. This card has a Whisper White panel that is accented with layered strips of the Designer Paper used on the front and stamped with “Happy Halloween” from the All Holidays stamp set. I will try to remember to photograph the insides as well.
