MCT: Inspiration Wednesday

Hi, today is Inspiration Wednesday over on the My Creative Time blog. My inspiration for my card was the recent Super Moon as well as Halloween. I unfortunately did not get to see the moon in person due to clouds and rain. However, I saw many beautiful photographs of it including this one I found on Pinterest.

I used the Stitched Square Dies to create the base of my card and to cut out the mats for the backgrounds. I layered the pattern paper onto some orange card stock and then used my scissors to fray the edges. I then added my super moon that was cut out using the Bunch of Fun Circle Dies. I used Memento Cantaloupe ink on the edges of the circle. I stamped the "halloween" onto the circle using the Happy Everything Stamp Set. I used a die also from this set to cut out the word "happy" and added it to the circle as well. I finished the look of the moon by added a few little bats that were cut out using a die from the Wicked Fun Dies.

I then stamped and paper pieced the adorable little kitty cat from the You Had Me At Meow Stamp Set. I colored the cat in with Copic markers and chalked his cheeks. I stamped and paper pieced the little witch hat from the Prehistoric Holiday Stamp Set. I colored it with Copic and Crayola markers. I added the cute little belt buckle that was cut out using the I'm A Lucky Girl! Stamp Set.  I stamped and paper pieced the two sizes of pumpkins from the Fall Friends Stamp Set. I colored the leaves and stems in with Copic Markers. Before I added the pumpkins and kitty cat, I cut out two rows of black grass using the Stitched Grass Die

I popped dotted the little kitty and the bigger pumpkins onto the card. I then added some Clear Wink of Stella to the pumpkin leaves, the witch hat, the little bats, and the words happy for some shimmer. I finished the card by added some white gel pen stitching and some mini gold sequins. 

Thank you so much for stopping by!!
