Stephanie with you today for LDRS Creative using the latest Halloween collection in store! You might not have noticed it yet if you have been living under a rock, but Fall is coming rather sooner than later, so it's definitely accepted in craft society to start working on Halloween projects! And what better than to use brand new stamps to spark creativity! I mean, I can't resist seasonal projects, they have such a special feel to them, like... time passes!
I had in mind to create a slim line project with the new Trick or Treat paper pack because the patterns were really calling out to me. So I created a card base with a piece of 6 1/2"x8 1/4" and scored it in two at 3 1/4". Next, I cut a piece of of the purple ghost sheet and covered the entire card front. To frame things, I cut out the Pretty Patterns Slim Line die set with black cardstock and by securing both larger dies, it created a frame that I could place on top of the card front with little squares of foam tape, for more dimension.
When I was playing around with all the images, I had the idea of creating a "road" to the haunted mansion for my characters, so I sketched a shadowy road out of the bat patterned sheet from the same Trick or Treat paper pack and outlined it with white cardstock.
I also made sure to vary the number of little foam squares behind all the puppies to make sure nothing would look to "flat".
I completed the project with a sentiment also from the Trick or Treat stamp set stamped with Raven hybrid ink on a piece of white cardstock that I trimmed into a skinny white rectangle. And that was it!
I can't begin to tell you how much fun I had creating this project! There's never a wrong time to play with
Halloween sets, honestly.
Have a great day, all!
