.During this time of year in New England, I tend to have a hard time thinking about fall...well we just never know what the weather will bring us. We have the kids going back to school, sports starting and leaves begin changing colors. But, the cool crisp days seem to come a little later now more mid-October to November. As this past week has been hot, in the 80s and humid! BLAH. Today is a little cooler but the air is so humid makes it uncomfortable to get motivated!!!! Hopefully were ever you are reading this, your weather is more enjoyable!!! And on to my projects.
The card I am sharing today is a little out of my comfort zone. I do not typically create cards that make a scene, but I felt that it needed alittle more. My projects use only Stampin Up products. The card features two new stamp sets form the Holiday Catalog; Graveyard Gate and Pick a Pumpkin. I used several inks for the sponging, Basic Black, Basic Gray, Chocolate Chip, Night of Navy and Soft Suede. I also used Pumpkin Pie for the jack-o-lantern.
The card was very easy to make and I was able to whip a couple up in no time. I forgot how fast sponging can actually be.
I stamped the gate and brick pillar images first in basic black. I stamped some grave stones in basic grey and lightly stamp them behind the gates so they appear to be a shadow. I also stamped some grass, from the High Tide set towards the front. I punched a 1 1/4" circle out of a post it note, making sure the sticky part is included when I punched!
I placed the circle towards the top right...this made a mask for sponging and wall-la I have a moon!!.. The top portion of the card I began to sponge in Night of Navy, I had an idea of where the light posts would be so made sure to go lightly so I could add so Daffodil Delight. I sponge in Basic Black next to add that foggy darkness. I tapped the sponge versus rubbing it. I removed the moon mask, added the light posts and lightly stamped the black over the white moon to make it look like it's in a cloud. Added a few bats!
For the bottom, I sponged in Chocolate Chip to look like the ground. And then went over it with Basic Gray.
I think it looks like a foggy night in a graveyard, what do you think??? Not to shabby!!!
For the treat box, I used Stampin Up's Clear Tiny Treat Boxes. I filled them with Candy Corn.
I cut a strip of paper 8 1/2x 1 1/2 and 8 1/2x 1 I used this for my belly band.
To make the witches hat, I cut out the circles in Basic Black from the Layering Circles, I used the largest circle and one that's like 2".
Cut the largest one in half and the fold one to make a cone, see pics below. I used Multipurpose glue to make sure it stays in shape.
Then, glue the cone on the 2" circle with Multipurpose glue. I wrapped the base of the cone with the new Vintage trim, this hides the edges and any glue that shows. I also added a band of Mini Silver Sequins.
I also added a Silver Glitter Bat. The bat was from the Halloween Scenes Thinlits. But any bat will due. A few strips of Mini Black and Silver Sequins and finished off with a bow (Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon in Peekaboo Peach.
The greeting is from the Graveyard Gate, stamped on Whisper White and cut out with the smallest Stitched Circle framelit.
The Pumpkin is from the Spooky Night DSP, and I used the Patterned Pumpkin framelit to cut it out...How cool is that! I love that the framelit set matches the DSP!!!
And there you have it!!! I hope you like the projects I have shared for you.
