Go Batty! 3775a1

Happy Halloween, y’all!
What an interesting site! I chose Camellia Cup for my inspiration for today’s Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast. I thought the black/white would make a good Halloween card.

All images are DRS  Designs. This card is pretty quick but I think the high contrast black and white gives it some punch. The Spooky Tree was white embossed on black card stock and the moon only was black embossed on white card stock. I cut the moon out and attached over the base image. After I cut it out with a rectangle die, I edged it with a white marker and attached it to a larger piece of black.

The greeting was stamped and die cut and fancy die cuts added to the ends. The white background was edged with a black marker and some score lines added before attaching to a 4.25 x 5.5 (A2) white card. A few punched bats were added.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a Happy and safe (yet spooky) Halloween! Our little goblins are going to get wet here. Boo!

WT242 SC252 Winter Wonderland 3784a1

Here is my combo for today’s WT challenge (use purple)  and yesterday’s sketch challenge at Splitcoast.

All images are DRS Designs. The trees were stamped w/ white pigment ink and embossed w/ winter wonderland ep (white w/ silver glitter) on a piece of acetate. I now remember why I don’t like embossing on acetate. No matter how many times I use the static pad, ep still sticks all over. I edged it w/ a white marker and stamped the greeting w/ white stazon (not going to make the embossing mistake again, lol). I used a ribbon punch on the sides and ran little pieces of ribbon thru it before attaching to a piece of dp. I used the MS snowflake border punch on another section of the dp and attached it to the bottom. Added the brads and a dk purple layer.

The three bg panels are sections of a big paint chip. I stamped the filigree snowflake w/ the foxglove ink across them then attached them to a darker section of the dp. Added a band at the bottom and attached to a white 5.5 x 4.25 card. The trees look very sparkly IRL but I couldn’t really capture it w/o having the acetate totally blind you. So picture it, if you can, lol.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Check out the DRS blog, if you get a chance. There are some great ideas and lots of eye candy.
