Gosh, can you believe Halloween is Sunday? Before it’s too late, I want to share a couple of spooky cards I made using Vintage Halloween Digi and Fancy Frames Cutables from The Cat’s Pajamas October release.
I used Silhouette Design Studio to create both cards. Every time I use it I stumble onto something new to me. For this card, I imported one of the Fancy Frames. resized and cut it to fit an A2 card blank (4″x 51/4″). The other elements are from Vintage Halloween Digi. I know I always mention the versatility of digis, but I still don’t really know all you can do with them. Look at these great die cuts that happened by cutting out the digital stamp design!
I sparkled all of the bats with black sparkle embossing powder, the spider with Orange Stickles and the webs with Black Diamond Stickles. The Fancy Frame was run through a spider web embossing folder to add all that wonderful texture. The frame was popped up on top of the A2 blank with foam tape as were the bats and spider. OCT 31 was simply glued in place.
The second card was made using Vintage Halloween Digi. This card definitely happened by accident. I started by just cutting some spider webs, bats, spiders, and words. While I was doing this, I learned that when you add an offset around your image, it makes a perfect frame. I’ll add some pictures on my blog to help explain better. You just move the image off your design space and send the offset “frame” to be cut.
For this card I cut the Happy Haunting scene and added a bit of Copic color here and there. I also ran a black marker around the edge to color the little white bits on the edge. Jelly Roll pens added a little sparkle to the ghost eyes and the web in the scene.
I cut 2 frames, green and purple, and ran them through the spider web embossing folder. They were layered onto the A2 card blank with foam tape along with the spider webs. The bats were placed using foam tape.
Thanks for taking a look. Before I go I want remind you of the Halloween freebie in the store. It’s called Ghoulish Digi and can be found here. Head on over to the TCP store to pick up yours and to take a look at all the fun in the October release.
All of you stay well, to those of you who trick or treat, have a safe, fun Halloween. See ya again soon!
