CTC152 – Painted Autumn and Spooky Nights

Can you believe that it’s the end of October! This year is flying past!!

We are casing the Painted Autumn/Spooky Night Section of the 2017 Holiday Catalogue, pages 48-55.  Halloween isn’t celebrated a lot in Australia although there seems to be more happening each year.  I’m not a fan, so I decided to case a project that used the Painted Autumn DSP.

 

Even though we are heading (very quickly!) into summer, I love the autumn theme of this dsp.  I am casing the centre card on page 51 of the catalogue.

I used the Painted Autumn DSP as the background.  I used the Oh So Eclectic stamp to create the floral scene.  I stamped the flowers in Early Espresso.  I made sure the ink was dry and then I coloured the flowers with the Daffodil Delight Stampin Blend pens.  I love the really crisp look of the pens.  I also stamped the larger flower in Daffodil Delight and outlined the seams with the darker Blend and then added some Wink of Stella for a bit of sparkle.

I used the large birthday sentiment from Happiest of Days but using the Early Espresso marker to only ink up the sentiment and not the greenery.  I then cut it out with one of the Stitched Shape Oval framelits.

To create the bow, I used the Copper trim and stretched it out to make it look a bit fuller.

Here’s a close up of the detail.

 

I really enjoyed making this card!  It’s nice to do something other than Christmas!

Here we are with another amazing Colour Inkspiration challenge for you!

I love the colour combination this week.  We have Sweet Sugarplum, Lemon Lime Twist, Wild Wasabi and Fresh Fig.  I know it has “that” colour in it, but it’s growing on me!!

One of my favourite new sets is the Oh So Eclectic bundle.  There’s diamonds, flowers, ok I’ll admit it, you had me at diamonds!!  So, of course, I had to use some Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper at the back.  I then stamped and die cut some of the flowers and stems out.  And Stella has made an appearance on the die cut flowers.  You really can’t have too much sparkle!  lol

My sentiment comes from the Happiest of Days stamp set which is fast becoming my favourite birthday stamp set.

I hope you are inspired by this card, please let me know in the comments below.

Next up on the hop is the fabulous Krissy Buck.

 

Happy Stamping
