This is my design team card for Try Stampin (or not) on Tuesday. The sketch for this week is below an the theme is LEAVES.
I have to admit, I just had to use that stripe of kitty heads. I just didn't have the heart to toss it and I knew it wouldn't last in my stash anywhere.
So, I started with two shades of brown card stock for the base and background.
For the leaves, I blended Vintage Photo, Spiced Marmalade and Brushed Corduroy on yellow and orange cs. I cut them out using Spell Binders dies 'Foliage". I then inked the edges with walnut stain.
The cute little kitty was stamped with Simon Says stamp and die set. I colored the kitty by brushing in distressed inks.
The stripe of kitty heads that I so love is from an American Craft pad.
Here is the sketch for the week
I hope you have fun playing along ....
Thanks for stopping by
Have a great day

Stinkin Inkers October
Hello everyone. This is my design team card for Stinkn' Inkers. The theme this month is Monsters.
For this card, I started with a piece of white cs and I blended Blue Print Sketch, Faded Jeans, Wilted Violet, Dusty Concord and Black Soot across the card. I then used water drops to remove some of the ink. I then went over it again with the same colors and a Kaiser Craft stencil, speckles. I also flicked white paint on the top black edge.
Using Lawn Fawn monster stamp set. I stamped the goblins on purple designer paper and used a white gel pen to fill in the eye. I used white embossing powder to stamp the square bats and heat set those. Then, I used the corresponding dies to cut them out.
Using the same stamp set, I stamped the sentiment with white embossing powder on black CS.
With two shades of brown cs, I cut the spooky tree with my cricut and the Simply Scarecrow cartridge and then inked the edges with Walnut Stain ink.
I adhered everything on to a top fold black cs base lifting all the monsters on dimensional squares.
I hope you have fun playing along.
