Googly Ghouls

This really is a much more detailed kind of a card than I typically like to do.  And…OH MY…it uses three DIFFERENT prints on the same card!  LORDY BE…what is this world coming too?   You know I like to keep my stuff nice and clean looking without a lot of clutter but I do think this works.

The base of the card is Pumpkin Pie.  From the Howlstooth and Scaringbone dsp I started with the Basic Grey polka dotted paper and added to the card front.  I took the Tangerine Chevron, added a Basic Black Large Scallop edgelit behind it, added to the card front then added a strip of More Mustard.  I took the Vanilla/Black strip, rounded the corners and added using dimensionals.  Next is a piece of Tangerine Tango, cur into a banner and added on a diagonal.  I punched out a 2 1/2″ More Mustard circle and added that using dimensionals.  I stamped Franky, Mummy and bats using Basic Black on Very Vanilla, cut everything out and added those using dimensionals (LOTS and LOTS of dimensionals!).  I stamped boo (didn’t do all the o’s on the stamp…wanted it short) using Basic Black on Pumpkin Pie, cut with the Bitty Banner Framelit and added using dimensionals (of course).  Finally I added some Googlies to finish things off!

Googly Ghouls

But before I get to that I’ve made a little card to share with you!  Our Preview Designer Today used the same set for her ADORABLE project and I just couldn’t resist using the same one too!  The base of the card is 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 Basic Grey.  I added a piece of the Tangerine Tango large polka dot print from the Howlstooth & Scaringbone dsp pack using dimensionals.  Next I took a piece of Basic Grey, cut out the center using the Windows Framelits, ran it through the Chevron Folder and added using dimensionals.  I added the circle punch out piece from the Ghoulish Googlies Designer Kit, stamped Boooo form the Googly Ghouls set on Pumpkin Pie, cut out with the large Bitty Banner Framelit, stamped the bat twice using Basic Black, cut out and added using dimensionals.  I added googlies to the bats’ eyes and some Basic Rhinestones to finish it off.

Joyous Celebrations

This really was a quick and easy card.  The base of the card is Whisper White 4 /14 x 4 1/4.  I too another piece of Whisper White, ran it through the Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder and then added to the card front using dimensionals.  Next I let my Snow Flurry die do all the work!  I did the biggest and smallest snowflakes in Silver Glimmer (note to self…need more silver glimmer…just about out!), then I did two of the Whisper White medium snowflakes.  Which layer of the snowflakes is added using a dimensional then the snowflake is added using a dimensional.  I stamped the greeting from Joyous Celebrations and embossed with silver embossing powder (which is just a little lighter than the pewter embossing powder so went better with my silver and white them on the card).  I cut this into a banner then layered strips from the ribbon lace punch above and below it before added it to the card front using dimensionals.
