Happy Halloween


This is Anja. The new dies finally arrived and they are so much fun. The new designs are really beautiful. First I made a Halloween card, using the Halloween Ghosts die.

For this project I used:
- Cottage Cutz die (Halloween Ghosts),
- Distress Inks (Spiced Marmalade, Wild Honey, Peeled Paint, Seedless Preserves, Black Soot, Chipped Sapphire),
- black card stock for card base (13x13 cm) and die cuts,
- watercolor paper for background (12,5x12,5 cm),
- white card stock for die cuts,
- vellum paper,
- water spritzer,
- heat gun,
- tape,
- printed sentiment,
- adhesive foam pads,
- paper glue.

First I made the background. I used three shades of Distress Inks and blended it together.

Then I used water spritzer to add some interest. I dried the paper with the heat gun. I cut the paper to fit the card base.

Next I cut the ghost and colored it with Distress Inks. I used white and black card stock.

For the background I used vellum paper. I made strips of paper.

I arranged it on the colored side and taped it in the back.

I printed the sentiment and taped it on top of the vellum paper.  I cut and made a black card base.

I used adhesive foam pads to tape the background on the base. Then I just added the ghost and the pumpkin.

And this s my finished card.

This is all from me for today. Don't forget to check the store where you can find all the new dies for 25 % off.

Have a great Sunday.

I always love the backgrounds you create with the distress inks- this one does have a definite Halloween night look - and using the vellum strips- creative idea!
