West Coast Creators October Blog Hop

I am excited to once again be participating in the West Coast Creators Blog Hop.

I am loving creating for Hallowe’en and especially the orange/purple/black combo (this time I specifically used Calypso Coral and Highland Heather). What makes my card even better is that the Playing With Patterns DSP that I used is on sale!! Check out the full details of the DSP sale here.

Some of the fun techniques I used on this card are:

  • The Black Ribbon – which is actually Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding, coloured in using a Black Stampin’ Blend.
  • Sponging Black Memento ink onto an embossed piece of cardstock to allow it to look tarnished and to let the pattern pop out more. I also sponged the edges and across the front of all the other strips of paper to make them less bright.
  • Using the Celebration Tidings dies twice to cut one tag down to the size and shape I wanted it to be.
  • The paper strips are each 1″ wide which allowed for nice spacing on the 5.25″ black card front that was then attached to a 5.5″ wide Blackberry Bliss card base.
