Hi friends. This week we have a great new Halloween themed challenge over on the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog. I hope you’ll head over and link up a project to share with us.
I love the wonderful subtle texture you get by using the Large Parallel Rectangular Pierce Plate. I use it quite a bit when a white background is just too plain.
My sentiment was cut in black and orange and layered to create the shadow effect. I cut my pumpkins in orange, then added brown stems and backed them with yellow for a jack-o-lantern look. I have some grass behind them. My sentiment is up on foam tape and I shaped the bat wings a bit before adding the bats.I added the boo sentiment and a scary ghost to the inside of my card.
My bow was made on my Bow-it-All V3.0 using two styles of ribbon from the September Halloween Themed Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon. If you missed out on this fun assortment, it’s still available through the end of October.
Ink: Distress Ink Rusty Hinge
It’s time for another fun challenge over at the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog.
My gorgeous bow was made on my Bow-it-All V3.0 using 5/8″ Black Glitz Ribbon. I also ran a piece of Black Glitz Ribbon across the center of the card under the sentiment and topped it with 3/8″ Pumpkins on White Grosgrain Ribbon.
