Simply Sunday: Open if you Dare

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

A sunny Sunday here today paired with one more card share from the amazing “Magic in this Night” suite. I’m beginning by simply flipping over the designer series pattern from yesterday to a floral surprise.

I’m also going back to more traditional Halloween colors by using Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie and Granny Apple Green … these layers of color are sure to make the Magic in this Night designer paper stand out.

A band of color across the front was used to also highlight the Metallic Mesh Ribbon. A big bow was created to nest my greeting on and make it pop! I stamped the “Open if you Dare” from the Hallows Night Magic stamp set on Granny Apple Green and backed with Pumpkin pie. You can use any combination of punches or layer with any one of our beautiful layering dies.

Today’s Simply Sunday card was completed with the Iridescent Pearls … they are so cool, and fit in with this product suite perfectly. This is the last of my Magic in the Night series of cards for a bit, but I’ll be back with more as time get closer to Halloween.

I also want to let you know that my OnLine store is getting a “facelift” and should be easier to use. I’m so excited! This covid has tied my hands to in-home classes but I’ll keep sharing here, on my facebook page and more …

I’ll be back tomorrow with another great project. Thank you for taking time out of your Sunday to join me today.

Halloween Gothic Night

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I am so excited to share today’s card with you … it is my second card creation from the “Magic in this Night” suite. Along with all the hauntingly stunning images from this suite, I will be sharing a neat technique with you.

Yesterday I used basic Halloween colors so today I focused on the color pallet in the suite, and I fell in love! My card base and designer paper pattern are the Pretty Peacock … the richness of this color and the delicate images in the stamp set turned this into a WOW card ….

I chose the Pretty Peacock design that reminded me of wallpaper in a grand Queen Anne home from days gone by. I wanted to add the feeling of “Magic in this Night” so I matted the designer paper with the Black Glitter paper… before mounting it, I cut out the mat for my greeting border from the center (perfect paper saving technique).

I stamped the border and wanted to add color to it but also wanted that “shimmer” so I used this simple by over looked technique: I began by tapping my ink pad onto a clear block … then get the Wink of Stella pen. I used my Wink of Stella as a paint brush and picked up the ink from the block and painted my flowers. I love this technique of coloring my flowers, you can add more ink to darken where wanted.

I also colored in my bat with the ink and Wink of Stella… this technique just adds to the magic of this card. The leaves were colored with the Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Duo.

The sentiment was stamped with Pretty Peacock into the border and then die cut. Once cut, I secured it onto the black glitter paper using the Tombo glue … it works best on glitter paper.

This assembly was popped up to create some dimension, and then the bat was also popped up! I could not resist adding the Iridescent Pearls and I’m glad I did because it really balanced and completed the card (and they are pretty!).

Are you a Halloween fan? And what do you prefer … the fun, the scary, or an elegant look of Halloween?

I thank you for stopping by today to check out my creation. Enjoy your day!

It’s Friday and I have a frighteningly beautiful card to share with you today. It’s created from the Magic in the Night Suite from the new Mini Catalog. I’m mailing today but for those who live close to me … schedule a time with me to pick up your new mini!!

The Magic in this Night Suite will add a touch of spooky elegance to your projects with detailed imagery and striking colors, just check out the designer paper …

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 153517g.jpg

The color pallet for the Magic in the Night designer paper is; Pretty Peacock, Blackberry Bliss, Cajun Craze and Basic Black. The pattern I used is the same as the Cajun Craze pattern on top but in Black. The lace is pretty and perfect for dressing up my card.

I backed (matted) my designer paper with a traditional Halloween color of purple, in our world known as Gorgeous Grape! The two detailed bats are on one stamp but far enough apart to ink them separately … which is what I did. They are then cut out with the coordinating dies.

I used the coordinating dies to cut my greeting out as well which is framed with the stunning frame …

The cute little bats are also die cut from the Halloween Magic Dies using the amazing Black Glitter paper … one cut and done, because these three bats are all on one die!

Just looking at this card gives me even more ideas for creating hauntingly beautiful cards for this Halloween season … and I’m sure I’ll find more to use some of these items than on Halloween!

Thank you for hanging out for me today and taking a peek into the new Mini catalog full of Holiday goodies!

Have a great day, and I hope you have a wonderful weekend planned.
