12 Days of Halloween Day 2

Hi there crafty friends!  I am back today with Day 2 of  My 12 Days of Halloween series.  The card today is a bit simpler and traditional card style but I think it turned out very cute!

I started out with an A2 base from Pretty Pansy cardstock.  I then layered a piece of printed cardstock from the Fall Fest Prints pack.  I then layered another smaller piece of Pretty Pansy cardstock embossed with my Spooky Bold embossing folder.  I took a small piece of the Pretty Pansy cardstock and a print from the Fall Fest Prints pack and created a layered fishtail banner with them.  I popped this up with foam adhesive to the front of the card.  For the focal image, I stamped the Haunted Halloween stamp onto Whip Cream cardstock with Black Licorice True Color Fusion ink.  I fussy cut around the image and colored in the bat and the word "Happy" with my Journey Color Burst pencils.  I popped this up into the center of the card and lined the image with Journey Glaze to add some shine. Finally, I created a bow with Black Gingham Ribbon to the top of the card.  I hope you enjoy this spooky cute card.  Have a wonderful day!

12 Days of Halloween Day 1

Hi there crafty friends!  Long time no blogging.  I took an extended absence due to the birth of my daughter.  Life hasn't gotten any less crazy, but I am making an effort to set aside some "me" time.  I have always wanted to do a Halloween card series, so this year I decided to go for it. So without further ado here is my project for Day 1!

I created an A2 card base with Black Licorice cardstock.  I then layered a piece of printed paper from the Fall Fest Prints collection.  I made a background piece from watercolor cardstock "smooshed" onto an acetate sheet with watered down Silks in Citrus Cooler and Sour Lemon.  Once it was dry, I adhered it to the card base.  I placed a strip of Black Licorice Sparkle tape in the lower right along with a strip of Washi from the Sweet Romance Tape set (free Bloom Benefit).  Finally I placed a strip of wishing stars down.  I made a messy nest of Black Licorice Journey Thread and adhered that on top of the strips.  I then used my silks to splash on top of the card.  While that was drying, I stamped one of the images from the Halloween Silhouette stamp set with clear sticky ink onto Black Licorice cardstock and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  I fussy cut around the image and adhered it onto the card with foam squares.  Finally I added some gems from the Sea Stones pack.

I hope you enjoyed my card today and will come back this week for Day 2!
