Hello & welcome! I'm so happy to have you joining us for our 1st Birthday Blog Hop! I can't fully express how happy it makes me to have made it to this day and to have you here celebrating the occasion with us!
Up first I have a card using the Costumed Kitty from our new Halloween Cuties set, along with the pumpkins from our Harvest Happiness set which I colored with Copics. For my circular edge, I inked up my background using salty ocean distress ink and then did some second generation stamping using the same ink color with a little leaf from our new Woodsy Creatures set. I finished my card by heat embossing my sentiment in white on black cardstock and cutting the edge using our original Fishtail Banner dies.
For my next card, I combined the body from our Comfy Creatures set with the tail from our new Woodsy Creatures set and the face from the Raccoon Witch in our new Halloween Cuties set. I completed the scene for my little flying raccoon by inking up the background using Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch distress inks and heat embossing the background with white opaque powder with the stars & moon from the same Halloween Cuties set.
To complete my card, I inked up a strip of white cardstock with Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade distress ink, die-cut one end using our original Fishtail Banner dies and stamped the sentiment in versafine ink. I love how the small touches of yellow pop against the royal blue and black backgrounds!
For my last card today I used our new Autumn Splendor set, along with a complimentary 3/4" tall diamond die (see details below). I grouped 4 of the diamonds together to create one larger diamond to form my argyle pattern. Click to download a PDF with step-by-step photos and instructions.
