Yesterday’s project for the InKing Royalty Blog Hop was super-sweet and fun (if you missed it, you can see it here). While I used a sentiment from the same Seasonal Chums stamp set on today’s card, this card is decidedly more spooky than yesterday’s. Here’s my oh-so-spooky card:
This week’s Paper Players challenge is Spooky Clean and Simple. Although my background is layered with lots of circles that took some time to build, the overall layout of my card is pretty Clean and Simple – and the card is DEFINITELY Spooky. 🙂 Here’s the banner for the challenge that inspired my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Spooky Cat Bundle. Oooh-eeee! I adore the Spooky Cat bundle – if you are looking to make a spooky Halloween project, this set’s got it all! There are so many Halloween-themed images – a witch’s hat, an owl, the cat, some potions, a rat and some great sentiments. Here’s a look a the bundle:
- Fun Background. It would be hard to not notice, but the background of my card is filled with colorful polka dots. Did you see them? Want to know how I created them? I stamped the cat on multiple sheets of colored cardstock (Lemon Lime Twist, Wisteria Wonder, Smoky Slate and Pumpkin Pie) and the punched out parts of the sentiment with a 3/4″ Circle punch. I layered each one on a 1″ circle punched with Basic Black. It created a super-fun backdrop for the spooky cat, don’t you think?
- Three Colors. While this card also features Basic Black and Smoky Slate, three bright, cheery colors really stand out here. I love this combination of green, orange and purple (and have used it several times). If you are inspired by this combination of colors, please save this:
Stamp Sets: Spooky Cat, Seasonal Chums Papers: Lemon Lime Twist, Basic Black, Wisteria Wonder, Smoky Slate, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White Inks: Archival Basic Black Accessories: Cat Punch, 1″ Circle punch, 3/4″ Circle punch, Stampin’ Dimensionals
I hope you’ll pop over to the Paper Players site to see the cards by the design team members and to play along with this week’s challenge.
