I really like the new wonky outline stripes - they are so useful and can be used for just about anything. I used the block stamp to create the border on this card - it's slightly smaller than the width of the card but so easy to extend. I coloured it with Copic markers and then restamped the image and embossed with clear powder. I cut the panel to size and layered it onto black card. I used the alphabet set to make my word 'BOO', stamped it in Versamark and heat embossed with white powder. I finished the front by adding some little ghosts. They were made by using the outline stamp in Uniko Style and the eyes are the smaller centre, I embossed them all with clear powder and carefully cut them out. I added colour to the back of two and added lots of sparkle to the front with a clear Wink of Stella brush. On the inside, I cut a mat layer of black card and on the white panel added another coloured border. The greeting was made from the smaller stamps in the Festive Sentiments and I added another little ghost.
I used the colours from this week's Cupcake Inspirations Challenge - CIC#426 and the layout is based on the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch! - CTS#243.
I didn't manage to do a post for yesterday's introduction of Background Blocks Falling Snowflakes as I hadn't finished my card. It's done now and here it is:
Stamps: Uniko - Background Block Falling Snowflakes, Big and Bold Snow, Most Wonderful
Inks: Kaleidacolour - Blue Breeze; Versamark; Gina K - Black Onyx
Dies: Poppy Stamps - Grand Madison Window
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Early Espresso
I thought it would be fun to make a window looking out to the falling snow. I stamped the snowflakes on some white card using the Kaleidacolour pad to create ombre snow. I die cut the window frame from brown card, stamped on part of the greeting and then adhered it over the stamped snowflakes. I stamped the rest of the greeting on the card base and adhered the window with some dimensional tape. On the inside, I cut a mat layer of brown card and on the white panel added lots more snowflakes and a Christmas greeting.
As I've got a die cut on this card, I'm submitting it to Happy Little Stamper Anything Goes with a Die - HLSAG#10.
