This week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge gave me the perfect inspiration I needed to get started on a card I’ve wanted to make for a while – a cute Halloween card. I wanted something that wasn’t spooky or scary but still embraces the fun of Halloween. I reached for the Harvest Hellos stamp set to make my sweet Halloween card. Here’s my card:
- Versatile Harvest Hellos. The Harvest Hellos Bundle can be used to make apples or pumpkins – such a versatile bundle! I didn’t use either of the images or the punch for this project – instead I let the pumpkin face stand alone here on the corner of a Stitched Shapes square die. The sentiment is also from Harvest Hellos. Here’s a look at the Harvest Hellos Bundle:
- Nine Layers. I set out to make a simple card with only a couple of layers. When I set a goal, I like to stick to that goal – except when it comes to simple layers. For some reason, I add a frame and then another layer. Before I know it, I’ve achieved a nine-layer card with two layers of Stampin’ Dimensionals. One day I’ll be able to make two layers work. One day.
- Sweet Halloween Colors. From the start of this project, I knew I didn’t want to use Pumpkin Pie for my card front – it’s the orange that is most synonymous with Halloween. Instead, I started with the softer, sweeter Grapefruit Grove and accented it with Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake and Whisper White. If you like this combination of Grapefruit Grove, Cajun Craze and Crumb Cake, please save this:
Stamp Sets: Harvest Hellos Papers: Regals 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper (Cajun Craze), Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake, Grapefruit Grove, Thick Whisper White Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black Accessories: Stitched Shapes (Square), Stampin’ Dimensionals
I hope you’ll pop over to the CAS(E) This Sketch site to see the cards by the design team members and to play along with this week’s challenge.
