Bright and Beautiful Halloween
by Michele K. Henderson


Hello Crafty Friends!

I am so glad that you have stopped by today to participate in our Fall/Halloween Poppystamps Blog Blitz! Today, my card features the brand new Friendly Cat! I love her adorable feline face and the soft, closed eyes. Isn't she darling?

You might win the Friendly Cat simply by leaving a comment on today's blog post! One winner will be randomly selected from every blog post to win the featured die, so be sure to leave a comment on every blog post with a prize that you'd like to win! Take a look at Friendly Cat!


I cut Friendly Cat out of black cardstock, and cut the Magical Cauldron out of shiny black foil paper, which gives it a great look and feel, like a shiny new cauldron. I wanted the Cat and the Cauldron to stand out against my bright, saturated background. Can you take a magical guess on how it was created? Alcohol Ink on YUPO paper!


I used shades of orange, purple, and green to create a dizzying, bubbling look, and inserted bright lime green paper behind the bubble holes from Magical Cauldron. I inserted black paper behind the Cauldron, then added the shiny cauldron on top with a round pop dot, and placed Friendly Cat right where I wanted her, adhered with foam pop dots as well. I finished the look with clear "sprinkles," which are acrylic beads with flat bottoms that are perfect for card making. Easy Breezy and unique! No two cards will ever look exactly alike!

The fun doesn't stop with just ONE chance at a giveaway! For a SECOND chance to win Friendly Cat AND ONE FOR A FRIEND . . .

Hi Michele, A stunning card !! Fabulous colourful background, the shapes that the alcohol inks have made on the Yupo paper are stunning. The piece de resistance is the black cat and cauldron, I have a black cat called Lizzie and she is adorable, just like this 'friendly cat'. I love this !!
