Hey there! Thanks so much for stopping by. Today I have some out of season inspiration to share with you because, let’s be real, I cannot be the only girl out there just wishing for fall to get here so I can create all things pumpkins, spooky and leaves! I love fall so much and it seems that every year my yearn for it gets a little earlier into summer. Lol! So even if the weather doesn’t cooperate, at least I can craft like it’s October!
To create my card, I started with stamping the main image from Boo Cats and colored it with my copic markers. I used the scan-n-cut to cut it out and set it aside. I had the idea to use the Diagonals Masking Stencil but hadn’t decided on colors or extra layers yet so I went digging. Ultimately I chose to pull the colors from the kitty hats and go with a classic polka dot accent. So fun!
After the stenciling was done, I die cut a vellum rectangle and heat embossed the sentiment on the bottom center. While the rectangle dies were out I trimmed the stenciled panel down with on and cut a darker purple background from the largest one. Then I had a random thought to add a little visual texture by cutting the same size rectangle as the vellum from the center of the panel and popping the frame up with foam squares.
For finishing touches, I added white gel pen highlights to the kitties and their hats, then a little stardust stickles to the stars and moon on the center hat. It’s simple but I love it!
This is one of my favorite Halloween sets! I think it’s so much fun and I enjoy coloring it every time I pull it out!
