It's the season of spooky boos, and an I have a cute one to share with you today! Take a look!
I started with a white card base and a blue-black background for this sweet little spider to drop by for a friendly little boo. The spider is from our newest die sets, Whittle Creatures, and he is perfect for a fun Halloween scare. I added the Reeded Deco Curve in crisp white, and cut an assortment of leaves and acorns from Fanciful Fall Leaves, Maple Symphony, and Adrianna Square.
A fun fall card needs a few spooky creatures too, so I added a piece from the Jack O Lantern Frame, and the Whittle Mouse! Really, these guys are ALL too cute to spook, right?
Arrange everything all together and you've got a bright and spooky fall scene. I love to create seasonal cards that feature fresh color palettes, like this midnight blue and rich rusts, browns, and golds. It's a little different from the bright pumpkin oranges and purples, but I like it. What new color palettes would you like to experiment with for your own Spooky Boo?
Thanks so much for joining us today!
Hello Craft Friends and Glamor Ghouls!
Today I am sharing a bright and cheerful card for all of us glamorous Halloween loving folks out there. Check it out!
I used bright, eye-popping colors to create an Autumn design to make you smile. I started with a bright green card base, then cut a pile of colorful leaves from the newly released Fanciful Fall Leaves. I also cut a few leaves from Maple Symphony and Orchard Leaves. I cut the Ragged Daisy out of pale yellow and black and as little nod to the end of the Summer.
The Witches Shoe was the fun part. I cut the show out of shiny black paper, which makes the shoe look like patent black leather. I added the trim and buckle in purple and gold glitter paper, and assembled it all together with a colorful shoe bouquet.
Once the shoe and leaves were assembled, I added the sweet little ghost from Whittle Creatures, and the hat, broom, and cauldron from Whittle Witch. A little bit of BOO for a little tiny shoe! I finished with a few pink, yellow and green Fairy Jewels.
Thank you so much for joining us today!
Hello, happy September to you all. Marybeth Lopez here with you today , sharing two cards made with the same dies.
I used the Poppystamps Penelope Pinpoint Frame ,Fanciful Fall Leaves ,.
I love using the cut out for the beautiful foiled : Happy Birthday die, from the set called : Birthday Wishes Poe Script. I make many at the same time when I have my hot foil machine out .
I used Water color paper from Open Studio 300GSM For all the leaves. I wanted a soft look not to compete with the background . I added foil acorns all from the same set called : Fanciful Fall Leaves. I added foam under the Happy Birthday to raise it up and then glued the leave tucked under.
I also made a bluish gray card to have on had for a guy card and just die cut the sentiment twice and then glued together, I love the simplicity of this one and I think its a perfect masculine card.
I used the Sunny Orange Collection for this card from memory box : SP1002
Thanks for the visit today. I hope you are all having a nice week.
Hello and welcome! Nancy here, and I have one last summer card for you, before pumpkin season takes over.
I have geraniums in my garden, do you? Our extreme dry heat takes them out in late summer, so I couldn't find one plant blooming, to post a picture of their beauty for you. Their thick lush leaves grow together blanketing the soil, and the flowers grow high on sturdy stems. I wanted to capture that for my card.
All pieces were cut from white cardstock and sponge inked. That way I could assemble the blooms from deeply inked to pale.
The sentiment is black embossed onto clear cardstock. Be sure to use heat resistant clear cardstock so the heat doesn't warp it.
Are your cards taking a turn toward autumn? Sometimes saying goodby to summers bright colors is bittersweet. At least my cards are still blooming! Have a wonderful week!
