Hey All! Didn't we just have one of these??? LOL Well, since today is Monday, we have another new FREE digital stamp from the ever so talented Nina May to play with today. It is another Halloween image just in time for the holiday! The image this week is called "Spooktacular Pumpkin". The challenge for this week is to use the 3D elements like liquid applique, flowersoft, glitter, and or stickles, crackle, liquid glaze, fun flock, etc. So, here is my card:
So, how cute is he??? I used a recessed window card for him. When I first saw the image, I knew it would be easily cut out, so I thought "scene" in my head. I love pumpkin patches, and the look on his face looks like me when I find the perfect pumpkin each year! LOL I printed the image off twice so that I would have extra pumpkins to use. Inside the recessed area, I popped in the big yellow moon and stamped a couple of bats on it. I used a silver glitter gel pen to make "pinpoint" stars in the night sky. I then colored the image with my ccp/oms and then carefully cut him and all the extra pumpkins out. I place the main image on top of the moon, but bent it out for a true 3D effect. You'll see it in the upcoming pics much better. Take a look:
You can see by the shadow he casts how dimensional it is. I then took the other extra pumpkins and attached them to the outer part of the recessed card for even more dimension. IRL, it looks like one of those 3D cards. Now, you can see in the pic above that the paper I used to create the frame on the card is pretty sparkly (don't know who made it. I had already cut it up for this project and couldn't find the piece that had the company on it), but I didn't stop there. I wanted my ghost to shimmer and shine too. See below:
He looks so beautiful IRL. I used a Martha Stewart glue pen (my most favorite glue pen ever because of the ease of use. Just like coloring with glue using a fine tipped pen). I then sprinkled on diamond glitter. I was very precise where I put the glue so that the glitter didn't blot out the line detail of the image. It really makes a big difference when adding sparkle to elements of cards.
So, there you have it. . . my DT sample for this week! What do you think? This is a really cute image for a kid's Halloween card! So what are you waiting for?!?!? Get on over to "There's Magic in the Air" and pic up this image for FREE! You only have a limited time before it is no longer free! We'd love to see you play in the challenge too.
Again, as always, thanks very much for visiting me. I love you guys. I'll be back on Wednesday for my next loaded Wednesday Evening Post. Not only will I have a ton of cards and projects to share, but I'll be also sharing a recipe for the most FABULOUS COOKIES ever! They are so amazing, easy, and perfect for this time of year. So come back and see me! Take good care all! I also have a feeling that Wednesday's post is going to be a very special one. . .so be sure to stop by and see why!
God, please help me be the person that my dogs think I am."
