However it doesn't mean I can't go 'Halloween crazy' with my cards instead, so have made a few this week. Thank goodness the theme for this weeks Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge is 'Halloween/Spooky'!!
So happy with how this card turned out. I've never created a 'moon' before and it looks so cool behind the black trees making it 'extra' Spooky...:
I think this 'Round Tree' die from The Cats Pajama's is one my favourite things I've purchased this year. Its perfect for Halloween and its going on a lot of my Christmas cards too.
I started by die-cutting the tree die from black CS. After working out where it would sit on the card front, I used a mini-blending tool and Distress Ink 'Mustard Seed' to make the moon. I then used 'Black Soot' to create the night sky around it. The tree die was glued over top and I used a white gel pen to add some dots for stars.
The ghosts and pumpkin (from The Cats Pajama's 'Faboolous') were stamped with Gina K Amalgam ink on Strathmore Bristol Smooth CS. I coloured them with Altenew Artist Markers, fussy cut out and glued on top of the die. I also used the white gel pen to brighten the eye highlights. I didn't have a TCP sentiment stamp that would fit on the card, so I heat embossed this one from MFT Stamps 'Witch way is the Candy?' on a strip of black CS and popped on foam tape, along with some black half-pearls.
I'm also going to link this to The Cats Pajama's Challenge #351 where their theme is 'Holiday'. This is my 'millionth' entry so they will be glad this challenge is about to close....
