October is finally here!!! For those of you who are observant, you noticed two new elements that I've added to my blog. The first element is the YouTube video of the song This Is Halloween from Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas. Just press the small play button and enjoy my most favorite Halloween song! You'll also see right below it the Halloween countdown clock! Both are located to your right in the side bar at the top.
On to the post. . .
My sister's birthday was yesterday and this is the card I made for her. I created another one of those punch pumpkins from an oval Spellbinder's die. However, I got a little creative with this one and embossed that great leafy swirl pattern across the front of it. It is embossed with Zing sparkly copper glitter embossing powder and it is so sparkly. Added two patterned paper panels behind it and a 3-D happy birdaty banner (made from scratch and embossed with the same ep). The card is a 5 1/2 X 5 1/2 square. I love how my pumpkin turned out.
Ahhhh. . .the dark side of House Mouse. . . .BBBWWWWAAAAAAAHAHAHAHA. There is a lot of fussy cutting going on here! Both main images are cut out and attached with dimensionals. The fence is a die by Spellbinders as are the grave stones. The specialty box is called a Flat Backed Treat Box and is a tutorial on SCS by my own blogging buddy Patti J. from Cherrish Each Precious Day. You can find the tutorial HERE. It is a great, well written tutorial and these have so many ways to use them. I added some mini Reeses in the little box. Can you imagine this with a (dare I say it now) Christmas scene?
This is just a simple Autumn note card. I started with a scratch piece of card stock and stamped the script writing on it. Then I used a leaf punch and punched 3 leaves from it. Then just distressed them a bit with Distress inks. Ran the background piece through in a CB embossing folder for a wood grain look, attached the leaves with dimensionals, added the copper brad and twine, and completed it with the little hello tag.
