Hi folks. It’s the weekend and doing nothing but raining here. Great day for crafting if my kids will let me! LOL. I managed to finish 2 cards for the Heart 2 Heart challenge, which features this sketch…The first card is a Christmas card I made using some CTMH paper from last year’s Christmas collection, along with a bit of Dotty For You paper.I cut out the Hohoho with the Artiste Cricut Cartridge and glued it, along with a few holly leaves, onto a 3 layer matte, which I then popped up using dimensional foam. I added the green bow and red button to give this focal image a bit more weight. The holiday treat snowflake was stamped in red and green, then cut out and pieced together. I added the blue gems to give it sparkle. It’s hard to see in the photo, but the red plaid paper actually has a blue stripe running through it, hence the blue accents.My Halloween card uses the Moonlight paper pack and Workshop On The Go stamp set (thanks Kim!). For the main focal image, I started off by sponging and blending ink onto a piece of card stock. I then embossed the lamp post and fence/owl image on. I wish I could say I had the foresight to mask the lamp top, but I ended up piecing it on so I could colour it in with Copics to get that lampy glow. Lastly, I stamped on the bats and coloured the owl’s eyes with a white marker.
The “Who’s Afraid?” flower was cut out using the Artiste cartridge and pieced together. I then glued it to a piece of Halloween ribbon that I got off a bag of candy corn. And last but not least, the beautiful, black lacey felt sticker underneath everything, is from a Halloween kit I picked up last year.
That’s it from me. I have to go off and start on my Hatters Halloween challenge project, so stay tuned for that. Have a great weekend everyone!
