If you follow me, than you know how much I am fond of cute stamp sets. Hello Bluebird is one of my recent favourites, I just need to collect all of them. For today’s card I used the cutest Halloween Party stamp and die set.
I started with stamping and colouring all the images from the stamp set, I used Copic markers. Then I die cut them with the coordinating dies. I wanted to create a Halloween scene, so I looked at my Lawn Fawn scene dies and selected the Stitched Hillside Backdrop Landscape die as the base. I cut it out from Bristol Smooth cardstock 2 times.
One of them I inked up with Black Soot distress ink and spritzed it with water then with black paint for some splatter details. The inner piece I inked up with Ripe Persimmon, Spiced Marmalade and Wild Honey distress inks. I also added water splatters to this and dabbed it off with a dry paper towel. I wanted to give it a subtle sparkle so I sprayed it with Tsukineko Shimmer Spritz.
I die cut a black Stitched Rectangle frame too and assembled my first scene. Before adhering the critters, I stamped some sentiments in black from the same stamp set and also from Lawn Fawn’s Costume party. I love to add sentiments to the background so they become part of the scene.
I added the critters, some with liquid glue and some with 3D foam squares. I added some white gel pen details to their cheeks, made their eyes pop with a black glaze pen and added glossy accents to the string of lights, pot and lamp.
I loved how it turned out and knowing that I still had critters left, I created a second card too.
This time the base die was the Hello Bluebird Gallery Frame die #2. I cut it from black, grey and Bristol Smooth cardstocks. I layered the inner frame to get instant dimension and inked up the inner piece as before.
The sentiment is from Newton’s Nook Designs Bootiful Night, stamped in black. I felt it matches the scene so well.
I used the same embellishing trick as for the previous card. I think this one turned out so cute too. Tell me, which one do you like more?
I will link this project to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge (Halloween/Spooky).
I hope you like my card and will pop in again for the last one tomorrow.
