AAA Cards Challenge #201...One Corner


As we get closer to Halloween and the option was BOO! I just had to go with one of the wonderful Tim Holtz ghosts.
The card is black card stock.
From white card stock I die cut the image (Tim Holtz “Frightful Things”) and the sentiment (Tim Holtz “Halloween” Side Order) and glued them to the left hand corner.

church on the hill…

At a garage sale a few years ago I found a baggie with four pieces of stamps from Taylored Expressions for a dollar.
I bought them.
They are all lovely town images in small rectangles.
I chose this one and stamped it on white card stock with Memento tuxedo black ink and colored it with Prismacolor pencils.
After cutting it out I foam taped it to a white card stock base card and stamped the sentiment from Taylored Expressions “Many Mini Expressions” with the same ink.

rocking card…

There have been a lot of these rocking cards around and I thought it would be fun to try one!
The lower part is black heavyweight card stock cut into a circle, scored and folded in half.
I cut two more circles a little smaller from white card stock.
The first I stenciled with MFT “Micro Cloud Edges” stencil and Distress Oxide faded jeans ink.
The second I cut using a die from MFT Die-namics “Pop-Up Wiper Card Components”.
Then using the MFT “Grassy Edges” stencil and Distress Oxide crushed olive ink I colored them and stamped the smaller one with a sentiment stamp from Colorado Craft Company “Birthday Wishing” with Memento tuxedo black ink before gluing them together.
I attached the sky piece to the back of the folded circle and the grass to the front.
On a piece of heavyweight white card stock I stamped the image from Colorado Craft Company “Happy Day!’ with the Memento ink and colored it with Copic markers.
This I trimmed with scissors and glued to the card front.

Just so you know it does rock but I’m lousy at videos!!!
Happy Birthday Flower Challenge!
