Happy Halloween

5/14/23 Rising Star at A Place To Start!
5/15/23 Top 3 at Halloween Crafts All Year ‘Round!

Hey everybody! Well, are you enjoying any Spring weather where you are? It’s absolutely gorgeous here in southwestern Colorado! A new challenge has launched this morning over at Mix It Up Challenge Blog and I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project for MIUCB #65 – Anything Goes + optional Embossing! If you decide to play the technique twist, you can use either heat or dry embossing. I’ve had a couple Stamp Anniething Halloween stamp sets in my stash for a while and wanted to share a super cute card with a heat embossed image that I made with Diana! Is she not the cutest ever?!

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock along with layering panels from the Printable Cuttable Creatables Halloween Treats Digital Paper Pack which I adhered together. I adhered strips of CutCardStock Astrobrights Solar Yellow and 80# Solar White cardstock at the seam with a strip of Eyelet Outlet Halloween washi tape. I added three Eyelet Outlet 8mm black Cut Jewels just under the band.

I stamped Diana from the Best Witches stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Solar White cardstock, stamped the image a second time in Versamark (over top the black ink) and heat embossed it with Hero Arts Clear Embossing Powder. I colored her with alcohol markers and cut her with the coordinating die. I adhered an Impression Obsession Cats die cut from Pop Tone Black Licorice cardstock on her hat and popped her up on EK Tools 3-D Dots.

I cut the inside panel from 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with a strip of Halloween patterned paper used on the front and a narrow strip of CutCardStock Curious Metallic Night cardstock. I stamped the sentiment (from the same stamp set) in Tuxedo Black ink.

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
