Hey Crafty Friends-
Today you are in for a Halloween treat! I am a huge Denami Design fan so it is my pleasure to be a part of the....wait for it....wait for it...
Today I made for you a cute little kitty Halloween card using the Cuddly Cats stamp set. This is how I did it!
I started by cutting the orange hounds tooth card base at 8" x 5" and folding in half. I cut the black cardstock layer at approximately 3.75" x 4.5" and used a scalloped border punch along the longer sides. I used purple stickles to accent the border. While the stickles dried I stamped two kitties with black ink on orange cardstock then three kitties in white (then embossed in white) on black cardstock and cut them all out. To create the pumpkin I punched a 1" circle from orange cardstock, cut the top off, and freehand cut some grooves on the top and bottom to make it look more pumpkin like. All the orange pieces were then inked around the edges with a little Ripe Persimmon Tim Holtz Distress Ink. Next I wrapped a double strand of Trendy Twine Orange Licorice twine with a bow around the top and bottom of the black layer. The twine gave me a straight line to stamp and emboss my Hey Pumpkin sentiment in white. The black layer was then adhered to the patterned base and the kitties were added, popped up on foam dots. The pumpkin was popped up again on a foam dot and the top needed a double layer of foam to be at the proper height. It might sound complex but it was so easy and fun to do.
I hope you enjoyed today's Halloween card. Please continue on down the hop for more crafty inspiration and a chance to win some great Denami prizes! You have until October 15th at 11:59 pm to leave comments on all the blogs to be entered in the drawing.
