Halloween Card--a Little Late

I had to wait to post this card until the Challenge went live on November 1st at The Cupboard Trilogy. As a member of the Design Team I have to wait to share my submissions with you until the month of the Challenge I designed for.

The card above was really fun! I sent it to my granddaughter for Halloween:) For this card I sponged the background with Old Olive at the bottom, then More Mustard all the way to the top. Then I punched out a circle to use for the moon and stuck it on the page while sponging the top with Pumpkin Pie. Pull the circle off and tada! you have a moon:) What you can't see in the picture is that I embossed the black layer with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder and spritzed it all with Champagne Shimmer mist (made by mixing rubbing alcohol and Champagne Shimmer Paint in a spray bottle--shake well to make sure it is mixed good).

So, for the list of Stampin' Up! products I used to make this card:

  • Card stock: Rich Razzleberry, Basic Black, Old Olive and Whisper White
  • Stamp set: Spooky Bingo Bits
  • Classic Stampin' Pads: Early Espresso, Old Olive, More Mustard and Pumpkin Pie
  • Punches: 1/2" Circle, 1 3/4" Circle, 1 3/8" Circle, 1 1/4" Circle
  • Other: Champagne Shimmer Paint, Big Shot, Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder.
