Happy Halloween - Color Dare #315

My DT project for ColorMyHeart Color Dare #315 was made using the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #286.  When I saw this color grid my thought was Candy Corn so I chose the right-hand row of Nectarine, Lemon and Black.  Went to Cricut Design Space, die cut candy corn using nectarine, yellow and white, outlined the sections, cut a black shadow around candy corn and stamped on the face and sentiment.  Found another stampset to use for the small candy corn, stamped in Nectarine on white cardstock, colored the yellow, layered on black paper for shadow, fussy-cut the candy corn, placed as embellishment on the background design paper selected and then framed it on black cardstock before adding to card base.     





After posting my card in several challenges... decided to repair the eyes because they appeared spooky instead of sweet and cute. The first attempt was to pull off the spooky googly eyes, re-stamp and re-apply the eyes with liquid glass. 


 Not happy with double stamping or torn paper. Second attempt removed the original white cardstock off the candy corn layer, re-cut, stamped and applied liquid glass carefully using less.  Now Happy … this gave me my sweet and cute as in above card.

Layout Sketch - H2H Oct - Week 3

Took the dare at Heart2Heart "Layout Sketch" and instead of using this layout pattern for a scrapbook page created a card using several of the design papers from CTMH "Grateful Heart".  Cut several panels of design papers sized proportionately for an A2 Card, fussy-cut some flowers from the floral design paper to reflect where the photos would have been placed, cut the PML card in two pieces … one for the main photo and sentiment takes the place of Love and journaling.  Happy with using the scrapbook pattern for a festive Thanksgiving card.

A Treat For You - Double Trouble Challenge #12

My project for Double Trouble "Halloween and Fall Season" and partnering with The Paper Girls #162 Halloween.  The tutorial that I used for my Halloween Treat Box is below in my Products List.  Chose three of the design papers from "Hello Pumpkin", cut several panels for the sides and top while layering each with black.  Selected several dies from my stash, starting cutting and adhered throughout my box panels. Added some candy in the inside pockets of the gift box for my husband.  



I had forgotten that Twisted Sister asked for an optional twist "a frame".  Since I already had my sweet witch adhered and didn't want to cover up the pretty design paper, I improvised.  Die cut an oval frame using  the same paper, tore off the witch and applied the oval to the 3D thin foam tape used when layering the witch, die cut two more witches, layered and applied with glue to the oval.  I'm sure this will make her very happy and I want to keep Twisted Sister happy, or who knows - she may come to my home and unwrap her costume and place it in my tree.

Boo - Let the Witching Hour Begin - Color Dare #314

This card is my Design Team Card for ColorMyHeart Color Dare #314 using the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #285 and theme from Three Amigos Challenge 19 "Autumn/ Halloween".  Well, my first thought was a Halloween card so selected "Hello Pumpkin" for my design paper and pulled out one of the PML cards, die cut a Halloween Village border and adhered with 3d thin foam tape above the sentiment.  

The background was a design paper from "Oh What Fun" and layered with Clover cardstock.  The only thing left where I could pull in the Lagoon was another design paper for one of the banners and made a banner from the other two designs I used on the card.  For the banners just picked another design paper to pull in the third color and added a sentiment "Boo".  Wink of Stella added to the Boo Sentiment and the Halloween Village border.

With Love - Color Dare #313

My DT card for ColorMyHeart Color Dare #313.  Just purchased the Cross Stitch Love Stamp set and thought the colors were perfect for a CAS stamped floral.  All images were stamped on the white daily cardstock using masking for the floral.  Some of my spacing for the leaves were missed; so I stamped a second large flower in the Eggplant and then used the thin cut...not happy with the thickness of the white around the flower decided to fussy-cut and adhered with 3D thin foam tape.
