Hello hello hello everyone… It’s the October 31st, so are you all ready for Halloween and trick-or-treat? I know my kiddos are so ready!
This card that I made back in October 2018 that inspired me to create those three Thanksgiving cards. As you can see, I am inspired by the theme, background, pumpkin, colors, design, and word die.
On my first card, I used the Wonderfall Time Stamp Set, Be Thankful Stamps and Coordinating Die, Stitched Tags Nesting Dies, and Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies.
For the background, I used ghosting technique. I created the watercolored background with the Leisure Arts Double Ended Markers.
I scribbled the markers on my blending palette (it is simply a laminated cardstock, actually!) and then I sprayed with water.
I added the watercolor paper on it, and gently pressed it dow to blend the colors. I let it sit for a minute to let the watercolor paints soaked into the paper.
I dried the watercolored paper with craft heater and then I stamped the leaf with water. I dabbed off the water with paper towel every time I stamp and then dried it with craft heater. This is a fun and simple way of creating ghosting stamping background.
I stamped the pumpkin with VersaFine Onyx Black and colored it with Leisure Arts Double Ended Markers and waterbrush. I added some white acrylic paint splatters on it. After I dried it with craft heater, I fussy cut with micro-tip scissors. I stamped the sentiment with Cheerful VersaFine Clair Ink Pad and Summertime VersaFine Clair Ink Pad on a white cardstock.
This second card is a no-stamping card. I created it using the Doodle Autumn Pumpkin Cover Plate Die and Thankful Word Die. I use the inlaid die cutting technique to highlight the pumpkin on the card and then I added the word die on top of it with 3D foam tape.
For the last card, I use the Choose To Be Grateful Phrase Die and one of the coloring page from the Blossom Bliss: Ready-To Color Floral Themed Card Fronts.
I colored the page with Watercolor Pencil and I used Colorless Blender Pen to blend the colors instead of using waterbrush. After that, I added some white acrylic paint splatters on it with fan brush. I dried it with craft heater and I added it on the card with adhesive glue runner.
I cut a piece of brown glitter cardstock and white cardstock using the phrase die and I stacked them together with dries-clear adhesive glue. I added it on the card with 3D foam tape.
