Hi, and I certainly hope you're not getting sick of Halloween cards! At our house, someone likes Halloween cards. I do too, but not as much as I like Fall & Christmas cards. Anyway, I saw a card on Pinterest pinned from kittiekraft.typepad.com . I had DH come see it, told him we had the dies to make this one. He was all for it. Now, Kitty does fantastic cards, and she has certainly inspired me on quite a few occasions. Sorry but I don't know how to show her beautiful card here, but at least I can give her the credit for the original look.
I didn't have the same papers, and I think she used Impressions Obsession Haunted Hill diecut (I did too), but it looks much different against the orange, white & black striped paper on her card.
Here's my take on Kitty's card: (and I hope I've done the acknowledging part properly!)
I used the IO Haunted Hill die, along with a MBox Tombstone die.(both cut from a snippet strip that was just right to use for both dies) Adhered the tombstones first, had to remove/reposition 2 stones that were behind the house. When I adhered the IO diecut over the 1st diecut, I used popdots to elevate it just a bit. I also added some bits behind the house windows and the punkin for the glowing windows & face.
Pulled apart a small piece of a cotton ball to get the fog for the tree, which is entangled in the branches. Moon is from a circle punch, EK Success bats added from snippets. Ghost is also an EK Success punch, 'nother snippet.
paper is from Authentique Thrilling Collection, 6x6 pack.
Sentiment is from a pack of Martha Stewart borders that I've had for a while. Came from Michael's I think.
OK, I've been MIA at the Snippets Playground for a while, since I couldn't get round to visit & comment. I think we might be back on track for a few days, so I'm going over to visit the Playground. First, there's some terrific cards. Also - some nifty prizes. So let's away...to Pixie's Crafty Snippets Playground, Week 90. You won't be disappointed at what you see.
Thanks for visiting, and lots of cyber hugs. Come again when you can.
