Spooky with Imagine: Day 21 of 31

Greetings! Welcome to Day 21 of the 31 Days of Halloween. It's no secret that Halloween is my absolute favorite time of the year, and when I'm crafting or decorating for this very special season (a day is just not long enough!), I like to make things that are creepy. I don't do the full on gore, and I try not to go super cutsie. I prefer to be a little off-putting and eerie, and I think my card today shows that. Here's a full tutorial.

Supplies:
Imagine:
Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Sparkle
Vertigo in Tilted
StazOn in Claret & Jet Black
irRESISTable in Love Letter
Memento in Tuxedo Black

Other:
EK Success Jack O Lantern layer punch
Stampendous Fitted Frames Set B
Xyron: Creative Station
Scrapbook Adhesieves: Foam Squares
May Arts Ribbon
Inkadinkado Halloween sentiment stamp
Gray and orange cardstock
White card base

Directions:

1. Punch 2 layers of the pumpkin. I did a reverse on the colors to add some additional visual interest, so my base pumpkin is orange, and the top layer is black. Spritz the orange layer with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Sparkle.

2. Die cut Tilted Vertigo using the large "M" Fitted Frame. Die cut a mat in gray using the small "P" Fitted Frame. Ink the edges of the Vertigo with Claret StazOn.

3. Trim a light gray mat to fit on your card base. Spray the outer edges of the mat with Love Letter irRESISTable and let dry. I love how this looks like drops of blood!

4. Place all of the pieces o your card base to determine where you'd like your sentiment to go. Once you've determined the placement, stamp the sentiment with StazOn in Jet Black.

5. Ink the gray die cut mat and the card base with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.

6. Glue all of the pieces except the pumpkin with your favorite glue. I used Xyron's Creative Station for most of it. Use black foam squares to pop up the pumpkin. Slide the ribbon underneath and add more black foam squares (trimmed down) to adhere the ribbon in a wavy, 3D design.


There you have it! A kinda creepy Halloween card using lots of fabulous Imagine products.

Skill Level: Easy
Time to Create: 20 Minutes, plus drying time

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
