BOO! | Laureen Wagener October 28, 2016 07:00
Boo you cut file fans -
it's Laureen with you today, finally again! I missed writing blog posts ;)
I hope you enjoyed Halloween week so far? I for sure did!
The project the girls came up with were amazing!
Unfortunately, Halloween isn't a big deal were I live in Germany and therefore no one here celebrates it - the kids get their candy anyways and we get to dress up in February/ March for carnival.
If you ask me - I truly miss it! I would love to celebrate Halloween partys, go trick or treating - yes 22 year olds want their candy too ;) - and just decorate. But oh well! Therefore I couldn't come up with a layout for my post - since I wouldn't have ONE picture to use.
I decided to wrap things up and create 3 cards - 2 traditonal regular cards and one that is a tag and can be perfectly used as invitations!
For this tag I used the Pumpkin Tags cut file and cut one of the tags with the face and one just as the outline.
I then traced the tag and cut a sheet of transparency to layer behind my pumpkin. I used Distress Inks in different yellow and orange shades to make my pumpkin look like a pumpkin and adhered some black cardstock behind.
Then I just punched a hole and set a black eyelet and this first project was done!
For the BOO card I decided to use the Web Background as a stencil and really love the effect it gives!
I simply cut it out out of some cardstock, adhered it to my card and used purple Distress Inks over it.
For the sentiment I simply cut the BOO from 31 and used Black Soot Distress Ink over it, sprinkled some black Heidi shine over it and called it done ;)
Last but not least I knew that I wanted to create a scene - now since we don't really do Halloween, I don't have any Halloween stamps - and usually I use stamps for cards all the time!
I looked at the files and found the Bare Tree one, which I cut out and used Black Soot Distress Ink over it. Then I also cut out a pupkin from Build a Jack and the ghost from 31 to use as accents for the card.
The background was made using different shades of purple Distress ink and came together easily ;)
I hope I could help inspire you to create a few cards to give away last minute or to make a quick and easy Halloween invitation!
Have a happy Halloween and stay safe!
