HeeHee, I used the little turkey feather in Paper Smooches “My Peeps” to create the three  flowers:)

I wish I had some smaller sentiment but I love every sentiment in “Pretty Phrases” (Paper Smooches)

Stems from “Lunar Lights” (Lawn Fawn), “Rain Drops Background” (Hero Arts)IMG 0752

Inspired by the color combo: Pink/Green, I made this card for Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge

[Challenges] Costume Party 09/10/2011

My, My, I think I just  made my favorite card! 🙂

Halloween Costume Party

Here shows the back:) It was my first try on the text background but it was too busy for the card. Polka dot from Tim Holtz.

IMG 0607

Card Base: 4-1/4” x 8-1/2” scored at 4-1/4”

Center piece: 2-1/2” x 3-1/2” (ATC size)

Simple Steps:

1. Stamp Hero Arts “Envelope Pattern” on card base with “Tea Dye”

2. Stamp sentiment from My Mind’s Eye “Black Bird” stamp to create background with “Peeled Paint”; Clear Emboss

3. Ink the entire piece with “Rusty Hinge” and “Vintage Photo”; Highlight main sentiment with black pen.

4. Stamp the witch, zombie and spiders onto ATC; Paper piece the clothes; Color in; Add Stardust to belt and screws.

5. Ink the entire piece with “Rusty Hinge” and “Vintage Photo”; Stamp “You’re Invited”; Apply glassy accent to spiders

6. Add ribbon bits and adhere to card base.

 

Costume Party

 

I colored the spiders first with orange dye marker then Copic black 100. Wait until dry to use colorless blender to create polk dots:)

 

When embossing with Distress Inks, the result is not smooth but like little dots (probably because the stamp set is one of those lower quality ones that the ink has pooled up) But for this card, it create an interesting texture. For this type of stamps, use an eraser to condition them before use will help. Pigment inks work better on them.

 

I didn’t think of adding the black border to the sentiment until very last because the card was not quite balanced. Love this effect, reminds me of those pretty neon lights at night.

 

All the stamps used on the front are from”Black Bird” . I got it with the following stamps this Fall. This is my first Paper Smooches stamps. Impressed with the quality and the images are so big and beautiful – want to ink up every one of them!

I started this card thinking about coloring with my chalks but all the shades I have do not match the little scalloped border I used here, so…

 

Folded Card Tutorial by Diane Zechman at Scor-pal.

Fun and easy: start with a regular 4-1/4” x 11” base, long side at top and score at 4-1/4” and 8-1/2”, fold and decorate, Ooh la la~

I cut away about 1/16” at the inside end so the card can fold flat down nicely.
