SMILE, IT"S HALLOWEEN! (1)

Another new challenge over at the Lawn Fawnatics Blog. Challenge # 37: Something Old, Something New. So trying to combine a new set, with an older set. I choose the Pick of the Patch stamp set, that came out for this fall/ winter release. And I combined it with the Booyah stamp set, which came out in 2015.


For the front of the panel, I took a piece of the new Woodgrain Cardstock. I die cut a square frame, using the Outside In Stitched Square Stackables. The scene I'm going to create, will be inside this square.

For the sky, I wanted to ink blend a sky. I used two colors of Distress Oxide Inks: Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch. I added some water drops, which I dabbed off with a paper towel.


I die cut the Spooky Fence Border, also using the Woodgrain Cardstock. But a darker brown color than the front panel.

I stamped the images from Booyah and Pick of the Patch and colored them with Copic Markers. Here are the colors I used:
Pumpkins: YR04 - YR07/ YR21 - YR23/ YR68 - R14/ YG61 - YG67
Squirrel: E31 - E33
Ghosts: C0 - C3 - 0
Witch's hat: V09 - V17/ Y06 - Y15/ C3 - C5
Broom: E71 - E79/ E31 - E33


I fussy cut and die cut the images and assembled the card. I stamped a banner from Bannertastic, colored it with C0 and C3 markers and stmaped the sentiment with Pumpkin Spice Ink.

I added the panel onto a Blue Jay cardbase and added some highlights with a white gelly roll pen.

REVEAL WHEEL (8)

I love the Reveal Wheel from Lawn Fawn. I just got the Pick of the Patch Reveal Wheel Add-On, so I wanted to try it out right away. Together with, off course, the Pick of the Patch stamp set.


I die cut all the Reveal Wheel elements from watercolor cardstock. Instead of the normal reveal wheel opening, I used the pumpkin. From Black Licorice cardstock, I die cut the pumpkin frame that goes over the opening, and the Spookye Fence Border.


I ink blended the background with three Distress Inks: Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch and Black Soot. I added some water drops to the background and dabbed them off with a paper towel. I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment with Ranger white embossing powder.

The reveal wheel itsel I wanted to be orange, but I didn't want the part that you see to turn to be orange as well. So I took white cardstock and colored, the part that you see through the pumpkin opening, with Copic Markers. I used YR04 and YR07. I stampes four different faces.


I stamped the images from Pick of the Patch and colored them with Copic Markers. Here are the colors I used:
Pumpkins: YR04 0 YR07/ YR21 - YR23/ Y38 - YR15/ YG61 - YG67
Pumpkin guts: YR21 - YR23
Knife: C0 - C2/ E08 - E18
Spoon: C0 - C2
Leaves: YG11 - YG13


The little curly cues were stampes with Freshly Cut Grass Ink. I die cut all the images with my Cuttlebug and assembled the card. I added the reveal wheel part to a piece of Perfectly Plaid Fall paper. The entire panel was adhered to a Black Licorice cardbase.

Super fun to make, I just love the fall!!!
