Halloween Card

This is a card I made for a challenge on the YouTube channel of Gloria (Spyrorocks346) to celebrate her two year anniversary as a YouTube contributor. She gave us a sketch ( week 120 as a card design reference. Because the challenge is in October, I decided to make a Halloween card for the challenge.

This is a 6 X 6 inch card
I used the Cricut Happy Hauntings cartridge for many of the diecuts(witch, bats, frame, and pumpkin), Martha Stewart Creepy Fence punch(fence) and Alterations Tim Holtz Tapered Fringe die(grass). The papers used are LYB Boo Ville(purple paper), Bazzill Basic Witchy Poo Shoe(witches shoes), Recollections(Orange Pinstripe), Paper Layerz(pumpkin) and other paper from my stash.

The witch and the bats were enhanced with Black Diamond Stickles(Ranger). A little bling Jewel Stickers(LYB) was added as well. 


Glossy Accents(Ranger) was used on the frame. The sentiment(craftsmart) was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on the reverse side of the piece cut from the frame.

Black Diamond Stickles was used for the pumpkins facial features.

Inside of the card

Cricut diecuts(bats and pumpkin), Martha Stewart border spider punch, sentiment(craftsmart) and the same papers as used on the front of the card.

I used Distress embossing ink(Ranger) with an embossing powder I have in my stash, as well as a Ranger Heat it craft tool.

Adhesives: Scotch Quick Dry, Scotch ATG, Ranger Glossy Accents, Recollections Foam Squares, Thermo-o-Web Foam Squares

CC3 Challenge #6 Altered Burlap Panel

Challenge number six Altered Burlap Panel in the Linda Ledbetter challenges is found in Tim Holtz A Compendium of Curiosities Vol. III on page 37. This challenge is sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique.

I must say this was a very interesting challenge for me to do. I have never gotten my hands so dirty creating anything, but it was so much fun.
I decided to make a piece of art about my favorite thing to do and my most favorite place in the world.
