It's Monday here, and time for Impression Obsession's Die Cut Obsession! It's always a fun time when we get to play with our fabulous dies. I used one IO halloween die, and cut the pieces into several elements to use around my 'haunted house.' I love getting more miles from my dies by taking the die cuts apart to use on my projects.
I am adding this to Jen's Dare To Get Dirty challenge at Splitcoaststampers. It's been a fabulous week of challenges with so many fun themes!
Here's how I made my card...
- On a white A2 card, I masked off the border with washi tape, then brushed light gray distress ink inside the taped off section. I had masked off the moon with a circle mask before I did this.
- I used a cloud stencil from my stash to create the clouds by brushing color over it onto the area. I have since received my new cloud stencil from A Colorful Life Designs, which I can't wait to use. I have been seeing it used all over, and the clouds are so realistic with that stencil. I will be making more cloud cards soon with that one.
- I removed the tape, then stamped the Haunted House 2 stamp onto white card stock, and colored it with Polychromos colored pencils. I fussy-cut the house, and added it to the card front over the background I had created.
- I cut the pieces from black card stock from the Halloween Scene die, and added them to the card front.
- I brushed some purple along the border where the tape was.
- Inside: I stamped Happy Halloween and added a piece of the die cut.
I hope you are enjoying the team's Die Cut Obsession cards. You can see the other's cards with links to their projects on the IO blog post HERE.
