This card is 5.25X5.25". I couldn't resist using these great Leigh Hannan Halloween Window and Pumpkin Patch stamps with the season upon us! I stamped the Window stamp on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Super Smooth cardstock with Stazon Jet Black. The image was painted with Twinkling H2O's. 2 and 3MM pearls were mounted with Glossy Accents to the areas as shown. Stickles Diamonds glitter glue was used for the frost on the windows. A piece of the Solar White cardstock was put through the Cuttlebug using their Distressed Stripes (it reminds me of vinyl house siding). The image was cut out and then the edges sealed with Twinks China Black. The window portion was glued to the "siding" and then the shutters on the side had 3D pop dots put underneath to give dimension.
The pumpkin with vines was stamped again and painted with twinks. The berries were painted orange and then Stickles Orange glitter glue was applied for effect. The eyes and mouth of the pumpkin were painted and then Stickles Yellow used. The pumpkin was cut out with an X-acto knife. The edges were sealed with China Black and then it was turned over on a Pergamano mat and embossed for depth using a stylus. If you click on the image below you can get a close up. Just enough raise to give it depth. It too was mounted with 3D pop dots.
The envelope is handmade from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80lb. Text paper. The image is the Pumpkin Patch mentioned above. The punched edges are from the DP used on the front with Martha Stewart's Modern Garland Corner and Edge Punches.
Designer paper was used behind the Distressed Stripes siding. A piece of Solar White 80lb Text paper was punched also using Martha Stewart's Modern Garland Corner and Edge Punches. It was first mounted on a piece of SU Orange cardstock. The DP was mounted on that and then the main image was mounted using 3D pop dots. The 5MM pearls were then mounted using Glossy Accents. The pearls all have sticky on the back, but it doesn't hold nearly as well as being reinforced with Glossy Accents. May Arts Deep Green Ribbon was sealed to the cardfront back and passed under the Distress Stripes as shown. The bow was done with the Bow-Easy.
The stick pin is a pear shaped boutonniere pin. The heart is a Czech glass bead with a Clear Czech bead below that. All were sealed in place with Glossy Accents.
The inside (shown below) was done with the same DP used on the front with the same Martha Stewart punches. The image is IO Leigh Hannan's Pumpkin Patch. It too was stamped, cut out, sealed edges with China Black, turned over on the mat and embossed with the stylus, and then mounted with 3D Pop Dots. The words are my own and computer generated.
The edge of the envelope flap is using the same Martha Stewart Garland punches. The tiny pumpkin is from IO Leigh Hannah's Candy Corn Tree. It was trimmed, sealed, and embossed from the back too. Mounted using a 3D pop dot too.
Hope you enjoyed the card. Thanks for stopping by to look and share!! Hope your Labor Day is great too!
