It’s Monday so it must be By Royal Appointment time. This week it is my pleasure to host the Guest blog and so I thought I would share a card that we recently made in class.
I blinked and Autumn snuck up on me when I wasn’t looking! One day I was in shorts, T-shirt and flip-flops & the next day it was woolly jumpers and proper shoes weather. My feet are feeling rather claustrophobic now they are encased again! Don’t get me wrong, I love this time of year…. the changing colours, lazy Sunday afternoons with a roast in the oven & snuggling up guilt free in my craft room feeling joyous at being able to use glitter and metallic card stock with wanton abandon! With the latest Autumn/ Winter catalogue brimming with wonderful products I find that my creative juices have been at full flow. However the one event in the autumn calendar that my class attendees struggle with is Halloween. It’s just not an occasion that we generally celebrate in the UK with cards and its a little too early to start with the trick or treat packaging. Trouble is I had fallen in love with the Wonderfully Wicked stamp set……….. and its coordinating die.
So I came up with this card which uses the bundle, but is an all occasion celebration card. What do you think?
The DSP (patterned paper) is all Halloween papers from the Monster Bash Suite. I then took a piece of watercolour card spritzed it with water & then added Granny Apple Green Pigment Sprinkles. Once it was dry I die cut the wicked out of black foil card and stamped the words using my Stamparatus.
My class attendees loved it. One of the ladies thought it would be great as a Theatre gift card for someone who wanted to see Wicked!!
I was tempted to add a few sequins, but in the end decided to keep it simple and let the sprinkles be the magic!
The Pigment sprinkles come in a great priced six pack and I think any of the colours would work in this design. |I can’t wait to try it in Mango Melody or Gorgeous Grape! Plus if you buy the stamp set and coordinating dies as part of a bundle you can save 10% off the combined price so great value as well!
