Branching Out

Good afternoon, today's card is my attempt to use the stamp sets that I currently have to make Halloween cards and the Branching Out Stamp Set (which is on the dormant list but still available) is one that is perfect for many occassions. I started by cutting out a Whisper White Top Note with the Big Shot (113439)and Top Note Die (113463). I then embossed the Tree with Black Embossing Powder (109133) . I added a moon by punching out a circle with the 1 3/8" Circle Punch (104401) and using the negative image I sponged Summer Sun (100537) and Pumpkin Pie (105216) Classic Ink. I used the punched out circle and masked the moon and sponged Ruby Red (102259), Pumpkin Pie (105216), Summer Sun (100537) and Really Rust (102549)Classic Ink across the Top Note to add a sunset apperance. I also added a little Basic Black Classic Ink (101179) to tone down the other colors. The bat and sentiment ( from the Scary Skeleton Stamp Set 113224) were stamped with Stazon Jet Black Ink (101406). The sentiment was punched out with the Small Oval Punch (107304) then sponged before adding it to the card. The base of the card is Basic Black Card Stock (102851) and was texturized with the Texture Plates Kit #4 (114531) before the Top Note was added. There you have it the finished card. Not complicated at all. If you would like to order the supplies to make this card or would like to host a workshop to learn how to make this card contact me. I would love to help you! Thank you for stopping by today and have a great weekend, Tonya
