Hello my fa-brew-lous friends! So happy for you to join me today! I am beyond excited about how today’s card turned out. I just love the bright, spooky Halloween feel that it gives. And it was ridiculously fun to create!
I started by die cutting the elements from the new Boo Brew die set from Trinity Stamps. I just wanted to play around with the dies and see how they went together. Well, it was too fun and I immediately had an idea! So I cut 3 cups with the intention of the black one to look like a cauldron. I didn’t want the orange pumpkin mugs to look the same so I did the spider for one and the jack-o-lantern face for the other. I used liquid glue to adhere all the elements together and moved on to my background.
With all the awesome orange and black it was a no-brainer for me to make a slime green background. Lol! I inked it up with one layer of the snowfall stencil and then used Rina K Glitter Glitz Gel on the second layer. After it dried I die cut it with the largest stitched slimline die. This die gives a 1/8″ border so I adhered it to a black slimline card base for a teeny black border.
I popped each mug up with foam tape for extra visual texture. Here’s a closer look at the spidery pumpkin mug. I think this might be my favorite!
But the face on this jack-o-lantern is pretty frightfully cool too! I just love him!
Last, but not least, our ghostly cauldron is pretty awesome! To finish things off I stamped a sentiment from Fa-BREW-lous in the same green ink I used on the stencil and die cut it with a banner from the slimline scalloped panels and banners die set. To get it shorter I cut one end, realigned the banner to be shorter and then cut the other end. This totally extends the use of your dies whether they are too long or too short.
I had a blast creating this card and could seriously make these little mugs for days and days! Next up is definitely a fall rendition for pumpkin spice because that is literally what I wait for all year long!
