There's a Scare in the Air!

Hello! Today I'm sharing a Halloween card over on the Scrapping Cottage blog for my design team day.  All of the products used on my card are part of the huge Labor Day sale going on in the store

I used the Lil' Bluebird Designs Home Sweet Home stamp and die set for my card and changed it up to create a Halloween theme.  I pulled out my Distress Inks to watercolor all of the stamped images.  I cut out a couple of grass strips from the Spring Grass die set.
The film strip and stars are from the Film Strip Slimline die set.  I used some Oxide Inks to ink blend the rectangles by masking off my card base.
Once I adhered the film strip onto the background, I inserted the grass along the bottom edge of each of the frames.  The little Halloween houses were placed along the grass.
I continued to build the spooky but cute scene by adding the remaining colored images.
To complete the Halloween scene, the little stars were scattered inside each of the frames.
The final touch on my card was a Halloween themed sentiment from one of the stamp sets in my stash.
Here are the products used on my card:

Hello!  Today I'm sharing a card over on the Scrapping Cottage blog.  My card features one of the Sentiments with Shadow die sets which is the newest die release from Cottage Cutz. The whimsical font on these sentiments is so super cute.  I also used one of the Lil' Bluebird Designs stamp and die sets and a die set from the last Slimline die release.  Currently, all of these releases are on sale!

I used card stock to cut out the Honeycomb Background Slimline and the Sweet w/Shadow sentiment.  The bees and trails are from the Love Bugs set.  The bees were watercolored with ink.
The honeycomb panel was placed on a white card base. I ended up die cutting a few honeycombs with the slimline die and adhered the negative pieces for a pop of color.
Next, the bee trails were affixed to my card base.  The sentiment was adhered on the bottom portion of my card.
The adorable bees were added near the trails.  I used some Wink of Stella on their wings for a sparkly affect.
The finished card is one that can be stashed away in the all-occasion pile for a special event!
