Gooooood Mooooorning My Fellooooooow Staaaampers ;-) heeeeheeeheee
Oh yes, I am having more fun than any law should allow -- LOL! It's my Change-Up Thursday time, and I just had to play with this fabulous set this week!! I have not made this many Halloween cards in years -- LOL. I just adore all our fabulous new products in the holiday catalog this year; and I'm having a hard time getting around to everything I want to do!! Oh my! Even better than all that -- I just love being a part of an incredible global demonstrator group where so many beautiful and incredible ideas are shared among everyone with so much generosity and joy! Today's idea came from a demonstrator from Woodinville, Washington. Now how fun is that!!??!! I just had to CASE this design when I saw it; and could hardly wait to get to the Studio table.
Doggone Delightful Stampin' Design Tips:
- Layerothology. This card is cut from Thick Whisper White cardstock, 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4". The layers to this card are a fabulous color palate of Elegant Eggplant and Pumpkin Pie; I overlaid this with Shimmery White cardstock. Now I love Shimmery White cardstock for watercoloring -- and this is a real basic "splash" background, but with the shimmer sparkling through is just fabulous. A watercolor wash like this is done so easily with an Aqua Painter -- colors I combined here are Elegant Eggplant and Old Olive. I love the colors together!!
- Everyday Jars. Did you notice that we have a brand new stamp set to match that new set of framelits in the Annual Catalog introduced back in June - the incredible Everyday Jars framelits set ?? I could have died and gone to heaven when I saw we had this adorable new stamp set to go with these framelits ~~ Jar of Haunts is just absolutely the cutest thing you've ever seen! And boy, do I have a bunch of things I want to do with this set yet. Let's hope I can find some time to play while I'm away with Mom in Vail this next week.
How sweet are these pals? Best of friends -- you can just tell ;-)
My little mummy is stamped in Archival Basic Black, and then accented with Smoky Slate again, using the Aqua Painter. It helps give some dimension to my little guy here. The Everyday Jars framelits make it so easy to cut him out.
The jack-o-lantern has to be fussy cut though -- just so you know !! :-) But well worth it!
He is "aqua-washed" (haha) in Pumpkin Pie, with Tip Top Taupe and Old Olive for the stem and leaf.
Mummy was laid flat to the card front with SNAIL; but "jackie" is popped with dimensionals.
- Suite Seasons. Don't pass up this wonderful sentiment stamp set! I love the sentiments in this set; especially this one! I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black before adhering my happy pair.
- Finishing Touches. You can never have enough shimmer and glimmer; so I pulled out my Clear Wink of Stella brush and added extra shimmer to everything ~~ the background, Mr. Mummy, Mr. Jackie -- LOL. I hope you can catch some of the shimmer in the pictures; it's just so fun. I added a few Halloween Night Enamel Dots to finish it all off -- wah lah!! Not that's a CAS (clean and simple) card with enough touches and details to make it a "wow"!! How fun!
I hope you have enjoyed today's fabulous duo -- I had a lot of fun creating them! I'm looking forward to more fun with this set; and I hope you are too! It's hard to believe October is just around the corner; so much fun, so little time!! I'd love to read your thoughts and comments. Let me know what you think :)
