Such a cool, outdoor site Anne chose for the Inspiration Challenge! I was inspired by THIS shirt & I thought it would make a good Halloween project for the idea I wanted to try.
A while ago, I saw a technique using a piece of burlap, stuck to styrofoam & using paint to stamp w/ it. I thought I could use it to make a cool mummy card. I found some wide burlap ribbon, used double sided tape to stick it to styrofoam then brushed it w/ combo of white & antique white paint before stamping it onto black card stock. I did this several times, leaving a spot to put the googlie eyes. The little mummy was stamped, colored & fussy cut before adding to a piece of white c/s. For the ivory piece, I used a stitched rectangle die to cut it, then angled the die to cut the right side into a point.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

This is also for the Featured Stamper (FS607) & I chose THIS to case.

For my CAS card, I stamped & colored the cute pumpkins then I used 2 colors of glittery embossing powder just on the tops..sort of a frost on the pumpkins look. I used my out of the box die cutting technique to keep the little flourishes intact. I also added a pair of embossed & fussy cut leaves to the orange pumpkin. On the wheat image, I stamped it w/ the acorn ink & embossed w/ the same powder I used on the orange pumpkin. I also swiped around the edge of the panel w/ the ink & embossed it, as well. The Autumn word was die cut in rust & lt blue & before stacking them, I inked & embossed just the top half of the rust colored one. 

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

This was made for two Splitcoast challenges..the Color Challenge (CC705) using soft suede, pool party & berry burst..and the Clean & Simple Challenge (CC499) to frame it. For me, this is about as CAS as it gets. 

I put the solid stamp (bg for the wine bottle) into my Misti, inked it w/ the raspberry color, misted it, then stamped on the Neenah, I inked just the lower section w/ the berry color & stamped. I repeated this using the oxide raspberry just on the top part. Then I lined up the wine bottle/glass and stamped on top w/ the nocturne ink. I added just a bit of the pool color to the wine bottle & glass, then die cut the frames out of sand colored c/s. I forgot to take a pic of the Copics I used, but on the sand frames, I used YG93, E43 & E44 to make the suede color. I used BG000 on the wine bottle.

Here’s a look at the inside.
