411 challange 115

This is the card I made for Stampin 411's challenge 115.

WOW what a fun challenge. And boy did I need the push. I have been in a bit of a rut lately. I think it has to do with all the stuff going on, the garden is ready and I have lots of canning to do. I have been feeling pretty guilty when I go into my stamp room knowing I should be in the kitchen working on Beans, or Pickles or oinions or carrots you get the picture!

But I decided that today I would stamp before I got to work in the kitchen, and I am super glad that I did!
I had so much fun making this card and I am SO LOVING this new set from the mini catty! Twick or Tweet item # 116497 for $18.95 and the new DSP Night and Day #116768 for $11.95 this paper comes with 2 black polka dot window sheets! How cool is that!

I used Basic Black cs for the card base, then layered that with Pumpkin Pie cs. I then used a layer of DSP from Night and Day ( 2 3/4 x 3/ 3/4) I love the swirls on this piece! I used a piece of Basic Black (2 3/4 x 5) and layered that with Pumpkin Pie again and then the DSP with writing from Night and Day.

I Stamped the Jack-o-lantern's on another piece of the Dsp with writing in Craft Basic black, then I sprinkled on iridescent ice Embossing powder. Heated that up with the Heat gun and WOW! I do love glitter! I used my Blender pens to color them in with Pumpkin Pie ink, and then I cut them out.

I Stamped them again using the Craft Basic Black onto the DSP for the card, and then used Dimensionals to pop them up.
I tied a piece of Black Grosgrain ribbon around that layer and then used Dimensionals to pop the whole thing up.

I was going to add a sentiment to the card, but I decided that I liked it just the way it was!
I can't wait to play more with this set, but must get back to the kitchen for now!
