Two Halloween cards by designer Gretchen McElveen featuring Jillibean Soup

Morning! I’ve got a couple Halloween cards to share with you. 
I was so excited to see Jillibean Soup coming out with new Halloween products! The “Owloween Stew” and “Witches Brew” lines are very fun and versatile! I made both of these cards using a combination of the 2 lines with a few KI Memories glitter dots thrown in for fun. And I used lots of foam adhesive to give them some good dimension.

It's What You See card featuring Graphic45 by designer Lori Williams

I love this quirky little card, it’s shape, the stencil and the eyeglasses with eyes stamp…super cute.  
It's What You See card by Lori Williams

I created the base card using a Spellbinder die.  I folded over a sheet of card stock and then ran the die over with an edge of sticking out, so it cut the whole image but left a bit connected at the top so it will open as a fancy shaped card.  I then used one of the self sticking templates from Hampton Art that I love ( SC0645 ).  The way the stencil adheres to the paper makes sure that no ink gets under the edges and it gives a nice crisp finish.  Next I stamped the image on another sheet of card stock and then cut it out with the smaller Spellbinders. (TIP: Don’t forget to ink your edges, that gives a finished look to all your projects.) I colored in the eyes with colored pencils and finished everything off with some embellishments.  

The stamp is one of our wooden block stamps from Graphic 45 (PS0767).  Please be sure to stop back in tomorrow with another creative inspiration from our design team.
