Hey crafty friends! Today I’m extra excited to be joining Pretty Pink Posh as a guest designer for their August Release Instagram Hop! Below will be all the details for my fun card but be sure to head to Instagram to comment and hop for chances to win a $30 gift certificate for each day of the hop!
I had so much fun stamping and coloring these adorable Halloween Critters! I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and when I was playing around with placement I thought it would be fun to create a shaker for them.
To create that part, I ink blended distress oxide ink in lucky clover, mowed lawn and twisted citron on an A2 panel and spritzed it with water. I blotted that dry and flicked black paint across the panel. While that was drying, I cut a wonky stitched rectangle from black cardstock and then used the next smallest size to cut from the center of that, creating a frame. I used the largest one again to cut an acetate window and adhered them together. I added foam tape to the back, sprinkled some Spooky Fun embellishment mix to my inked panel before sealing it all up.
I added the critters with foam squares across the arch of the window opening. Then for my sentiment, I pulled in the pink and purple from the embellishment mix by stamping and heat embossing my sentiment on those colors of cardstock. I used the coordinating die to cut out the script word and went digging for something to cut the smaller part. I found that the ruler die from Crafty Critters perfectly cuts out the “you are” sentiment in this set! I totally wrote that on a sticky note and put it in my packaging so I didn’t forget next time!
For finishing touches on my card, I added glossy accents to the pumpkin faces and critter noses. Then, black glaze pen to the bear’s eyes. Isn’t this card so fun and adorable!?! I just love these new critters!
