Hello and welcome to day 5 of the My Favorite Things August release countdown. For the next 5 days, we're counting down to the August release, sharing cards and ideas using the new products. ;)
For my first card today, I used the new Spooky Sweets stamp set to create a colourful watercolour scene perfect for Halloween!
I created my watercolour panel first with purples, blues and greens. Once I was done the watercolour, I added flicks of white paint over the whole panel and then I set it aside to dry.
While it was drying, I cut, scored and folded a Grout Gray card base and stamped it with the new Triple Stripe Background stamp with Grout Gray ink for a tone on tone look. I love the subtle detail it adds to the background of the card.
Once the panel was dry, I stamped on the sentiment and the bats with black ink and then I adhered the panel to a Black Licorice cardstock mat and then added it to the card base.
For my second card today, I created a circle shaped card for a different look. I love shaped cards but never think to create them so this one was a lot of fun to make! ;)
I diecut the circle shape twice from white cardstock and trimmed down one of the circles with the Stitched Snowdrifts Die-namics to create the grass area. I used an ink blending tool and Distress Inks and added colour to both of the pieces before adhering them together.
I stamped and diecut the pumpkin images from the Spooky Sweets stamp set and adhered them directly onto the card front. I stamped a face on the front pumpkin and I covered it with Glossy Accents for a shiny look.
To finish the card I stamped the sentiment in the grass area underneath the pumpkins and then I added some clear sequins for some added dimension.
Thanks so much for joining me for day 5 of the August release countdown. All of the new products that we're sharing all week will officially be available in the MFT online store at 10pm EST on August 2, 2016.
