Hello friends and happy (almost) Halloween! EEEEEKKKKKkkkk! It is my absolute favorite season of the year to make cards for! I love all the ghosts, zombies, pumpkins, bats, cats and witches! Today I am sharing a not-so-scary card using the Hey Pumpkin stamp set from Joy Clair Designs and some non-traditional pumpkin colors. Black and purple pumpkins? Why not? It's one way to up the spook factor.
The base of this A2 sized card is made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. Using a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of white cardstock, I ran it through my big shot with a diagonal lined/striped background frame die. I then flipped the frame die over and filled in the gaps with strips of orange, black and purple cardstock. I printed out the large pumpkin image from the Hey Pumpkin stamp set. I colored the image in with orange, purple and green Copic markers. I fussy cut the image and then adhered it to the card using Scotch 3M foam adhesive for added dimension. I cut the words "hey pumpkin" out in thin strips and adhered them to the card also using 3M foam adhesive. Lastly, I added a coat of clear Wink of Stella to the image for added sparkle.
There are still 11 days left until Halloween! You have time to brew up some scary creations! Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
