Kathleen here from Talking Papers and I can't wait to share these Halloween cards that I design from this month's Nesting components kit.
My scrapping style is a bit of a hodge podge . My main love is creating scrapbook layouts but I also have fun making tags, and mini albums. I love vintage, shabby chic, traditional, and experiment with new techniques. All of the above you will see in the cards I have created for you today.
First up is this fall leaves card sprinkled with unexpected delights! I used the items below to create
For this sweet darling of a card I used the black card form found in the kit.
Next I used a decorative punch on the end of the jack-o-lantern paper and tucked a gold doily behind it. Finally I cut out of of the fun clip art photos topped it with some dots a cute chipboard trick or treat bag and some flowers.
One of my favorite elements from this kit is the totally cool 6x6 skeleton stencil.
1. Using an artists palette knife spread a thin layer DecoArt Dimensional effects texture paste over the skeleton stencil on a piece of black card stock and let dry. Once dry cut out the skeleton mask.
2. I selected the orange card provided in the kit and put a stripe of washi tape (also included in the kit) along the top and bottom of the card extending it to the back side.
3. Put pop dots on the back of the skeleton mask and adhere it to the center of the card. Glue the boo cut out to side and viola!
I also used the washi tape on the inside of the card.
It has been a pleasure to be a Guest Designer and I hope you enjoyed my projects. Thank you for stopping by and having a peek. Thank you for joining me here today and let your creativity take flight!
Items used for the above project can be found in this kit.
I use the palette knife from this tool set.
