Thanks For All You Do by Dina Kowal

We have a pretty fall card from Dina Kowal to share today using Bird Die set

Leafy Branch Die and the Spring Medley clear set.

I wanted to test out my new Kemper Spatter Brush so I used it to create this inky background for an inlaid scene.

The background has a fine shimmer over it, from a layer of copper and bronze PanPastels. I used Turquoise Inka Gold on the bird die cut.

Have a great day!

Candy Corn Halloween Card by Jenny Gropp

Jenny Gropp uses Clear Set #CL488 Have Broom will Travel and Clear Set #CL554 Creepy forher fun Halloween card!

 
 
 I stamped the candy corns and masked them with Eclipse Tape. After masking, I stamped the verse multiple times over the candy. I airbrushed the background with YR15 and Y17.
 
Candy corns are pretty quick and easy to color with a few Copics! I stacked up my oval die cuts a little wonky, using foam tape in between layers for dimension.
 
I used a Wink of Stella Clear Brush to add a little sugary sparkle to the candy corns.

On the inside, I added a few leftovers to finish the card. The card size is an A2.

 

Have a great day!

Spooktacular by Laura Fulcher

Laura Fulcher shares a masked Halloween card today using C5522 Spooktacular & H7759 Spooky Trees. Pretty and spooky at the same time!

 
I absolutely love making Halloween cards!

For this particular card, I wanted to do something that was a little nontraditional.  There are
no bats, cats, or witches.  I just took some trees and added a really big moon behind them. 
There is just something eerie about a really big full moon.

To make the card, I stamped the Spooky Trees (H7759) onto white cardstock with
black  ink.  I then added a circle mask where I wanted the moon to be:


Next, I sponged the sky with Distress Inks (Stormy Sky, Seedless Preserves,
Concord Grape, Black Soot). Remove the mask and hello moon!

 
Have a great day!
