I am having so much fun with the Halloween stamp sets and goodies from the Journey Holidays Trends Mini (CL-0028) and the Annual Catalog and Inspiration Book (CL-0025). I have been wanting to play with these Halloween treats for a while but life had other plans so I am so glad I got to play now!!
Let me start by saying that I am LOVING the Mirror Sheets! They come in Gold (CS-0136) and Silver (CS-0137) and they are just fabulous! [they would be awesome for other holiday cards as well].
Now onto the card. I used the Spooky Bold Embossing Folder (EF-0022) and embossed a piece of Pretty Pansy (CS-0029) cardstock. Then I took my Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink pad and gently brushed over the top of the embossing. I applied some Sparkle Silk (IP-0126) and Silver Silk (IP-0090) before adhering it to the Mirror Silver (CS-0137) piece. Then adhered that to a Black Licorice (CS-0003) card base.
Using the same size Journey Circles (DI-0039) I cut out a piece of Mirror Gold (CS-0136) and Lemon Drop (CS-0018). On the Lemon Drop piece I used the Color Splash Watercolor (JM-0078) pencils (#0046, #0047 and applied a bit of Sparkle Silk with a Blending Brush (TO-0098). I then added more Sparkle Silk to the moon. Using Easy Glide (AD-0081), I offset the Lemon Drop (moon) piece onto the Mirror Gold and then popped that up using Foam Squares (AD-0084 and AD-0085).
On a piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) cardstock I embossed the witch from the Halloween Silhouettes Bundle (BD-0298) using both Black (IP-0099) and Silver (IP-100) embossing powder (I mixed a bit of the Silver with the Black – I like the way it turned out. I think it gives it a little glitz and glimmer.) I cut it out using the matching dies. I then popped her up using Foam Squares.
I added some Licorice Sparkle Tape (AC-0257) and Simply Gold Tape (AC-0294) [reminder, these are included in the Make Your Mark Promotion – 25% off]. I stamped the sentiment from the Creepy Kids (SS-0528) stamp set in Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink onto a scrap piece of Orange Rave (CS-0124).
I couldn’t stop! For the inside, I stamped the witch in Citrus Cooler (IP-0048) ink but stamped off first before stamping it onto the piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) cardstock. I then took the sentiment from the Beautiful Wings (SS-0353) stamp set and stamped it in Black Licorice ink.
Be sure to stop back this week. I will have more Halloween Treats to share with you!
May all your hand-made creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.
