The Clean & Simple Challenge (CAS557) is a happy Halloween theme using some purple. I think purple is a perfect color to go on Halloween cards.

For my Halloween card today. I’m using one of my fave images, this Happy Pumpkin, but I always call him Jack.  I love his jaunty hat & big grin. After I colored him & die cut him I added a narrow purple layer. The background was embossed w/ 2 different folders. I wish you could see it in is SOOOO sparkly. I went over all the high points w/ a Versamark then heat embossed them w/ a black sparkly powder. I stamped just part of a large greeting & embossed it as well. Then I used a small rounded oval die to cut it. 

Here’s the inside & the Copic colors I used.

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC725) this week, we’re headed to a place called One Coast & I chose THIS for my inspiration. 

For my card, I knew I wanted a top layer so that only a portion of the pumpkin bg so I cut the black layer first & also cut the circle window out of it. Then I stamped the fun pumpkin bg & colored w/ Copics. Now I didn’t color all of it, just the parts that would show. Hey, I’m not a complete idiot (some parts are missing, lol). The spider webs were stamped onto the black w/ the Distress Oxide ink & the greeting was die cut & double stacked a little off.

Here are the Copics I used.

For today’s Color Challenge (CC759) on Splitcoast, the colors are mango, rose & pear. To be honest, these colors are not on my go to list & I don’t have these colors, so I came as close as I could. 

For my card, I first inked a craft sheet w/ distress oxide inks, misted then pressed my paper to it. After I dried it, the leaves were stamped, masking as I went. I pressed some mini Distress inks to a solid version of the leaf, spritzed it then stamped it inside the outline leaves. It still didn’t look right, so I used a paintbrush & some embossing ink & painted inside the leaves & clear embossed them to make them stand out a bit more. The green pear top layer was die cut & the window was cut using my resizing technique to make it longer than a std rect. The 3 little leaves are from a couple of small punches. The fall part of the greeting was stamped & the hello is a double stacked die cut. 

Here’s the inside:
