Your Next Stamp September 2015 Release Hop

Hello and happy Labour Day long weekend to all of my Canadian and American friends! Fall and Halloween are my favourite season and holiday to celebrate during the year and so of course I am LOVING this latest release from Your Next Stamp. As busy as I am wedding planning, I definitely took care into making this card and sharing it with you.

If you’ve been hopping along, you would have arrived from Kendra’s blog and if you’d like to start from the beginning, you can click on over to the linky at the bottom and start at Kymona’s blog.

I really wanted to play with this new Spooky Halloween Scene die set and I wanted to create an evening glow horizon to set the tone. The die set is so versatile in the sense that you can use the fence again for a farm scene, use the trees for a winter scene and the metal fence that it comes with – for pretty much anything else! The haunted mansion… the mansion… so many possibilities.

Happy Halloween 1

I really wanted to give the dies a silhouette feel! I first masked off the moon and then using the sponging technique, I sponged on four different inks to create my evening sky. The inks I used are from Memento (Tuxedo Black) and Stampin’ Up (Tangerine Tango, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight). I used some foam adhesive to pop the second tree up just for some dimension as seen below.
