Happy Halloween! For this week’s super fabulous Global Design Project I’m CASEing a card by the lovely Steffi Helmschrott from Germany. I used the Everything Essential stamp set and the gorgeous Magic In This Night DSP to create my Halloween Pumpkins card.
CASE = Copy And Selectively Edit
Start with a Basic Black cs card base. Cut a Very Vanilla cs panel and Magic In This Night DSP panel and glue them together. Use a stamping sponge add Memento Black ink to the edges of the Very Vanilla cs panel and then glue the panels to the card front.
Cut a Watercolor paper panel. Stamp the Jack o’ lantern image from the Everything Essential stamp set three times in Memento Black ink. Use the water painter to add Calypso Coral ink, Terracotta Tile ink, Cajun Craze ink to each of the pumpkins and then add a lighter wash behind the pumpkins. Be sure to let the watercolor paper completely dry. After it’s dry sponge Memento Black ink on the watercolor paper’s edges. Then wrap the sponged panel with a piece of Terracotta Tile Shimmery ribbon (from the Ornate Garden combo ribbon pack) using Stampin’ Seal to secure the ends to the back of the panel. Use Black Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the panel to the card front. Tie a small bow with the Terracotta Tile Shimmery ribbon and add it to the right corner of the watercolor paper panel with glue dots.
Stamp the sentiment from the Harvest Hello stamp set in Memento Black ink on Very Vanilla cs. Use your paper snips to fussy cut it out. Sponge on Memento Black ink to the sentiment panels edges. Use the Black Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals and glue dots to add the sentiment panel to the card front under the ribbon overlapping the watercolor paper to the left of the bow.
Give your Jack o’ lantern’s a sparkly smile by applying Wink of Stella. I added it a couple of times to make sure it’s on thick for maximum sparkle. Finally add Artistry Blooms sequins to the card front.
Don’t forget to add a Very Vanilla cs panel to write your message. Sponge Memento Black to the panel’s edges and stamp the sentiment from the A Wish For Everything stamp set. I also added strips of DSP to the inside and back of the card to pull the theme through.
