Halloween cards from the class

Finally got to post the halloween cards we made at the Halloween Card Class on October 13th.

The stamp set used in this one is Cookie Cutter Halloween. I heat embossed the skeleton with VersaMark and white embossing powder on Basic Black card stock, which was then mounted on a piece of Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper. The other pattern paper layers on this card are also from that same set. 

The 'swirly bits' are cut with Swirly Scribbles thinlits, and the bat is punched first with the Elegant Butterfly punch, and then the bottom of the butterfly is punched out with the Bitty Butterfly punch, to make it look like a bat.

The second card is also using the Swirly Scribbles thinlits. Here you can cut both pumpkins at the same time (the smaller circle fits inside the large circle centre, so you have no waste!. The leafs are stamped with Swirly Bird stamp set using Emerald Envy ink. The background splatter is from Swirly Bird stamp set and the sentiment is from Work of Art stamp set and I used Emerald Envy and Sahara Sand inks.

The third card uses again Cookie Cutter Halloween stamp set. The background smutch is painted with a paint brush and Crushed Curry ink refill. The leaves are cut out using Leaflets Framelits. The orange leaf is then embossed with Woodgrain embossing folder, and the Delightful Dijon maple leaf is texturized by breaking the card stock apart.

This creates a 'suede' feel and look to the card stock. This is how I did it:

1. cut out your shape
2. use a bone folder to break the paper fibres by 'curling' the piece in different directions. This curling motion will break the fibres, and you will see that the paper layers start to peel apart. Just be careful with your curling, specially smaller parts may break. Even my leaf had some tears, but I made sure those parts are covered with the other leaf.
3. once your layers start peeling, gently tear the layers apart.

And the last card uses the same Cookie Cutter Halloween stamp set and the Halloween Night Specialty Designer series paper. The sentiment is stamped with Labeler Alphabet stamp set, and the background behind the scarecrow is stamped with a stamp from Butterfly Basics.

Both scarecrows are coloured with Blender Pens.
