Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 78

Hello friends! Welcome back to the Monday Montage Blog Hop! You may have gotten here from the amazing Bree Renwick’s blog, make sure you select the “next” button below and that will take you to the next stop on the hop, the wonderful Dani Dziama’s blog.  As always, we have some amazeballs inspiration to share today 🙂

I can hardly believe that sweet summer is coming to an end and fall is in the air!  With fall comes fun Halloween crafting though which makes me happy pants 🙂  And what cute, cute Halloween goodies are in the new Holiday Catalog from  SU!  I have lots of fun stuff planned for my crafting adventures!  I am sharing my first endeavor with you 🙂

First steps for this card are die cutting several different pieces with the Halloween Scene Edgelits:  the fence is die cut from Early Espresso, the tree is die cut twice – once from Basic Black and one from Smoky Slate.  The tree is then layered with the Smoky Slate behind to give the tree some extra dimension.  I love how this looks!

The tomb stone image and the witch image from Spooky Fun are stamped on Smoky Slate and die cut with the Halloween Scene Edgelits.  All of these die cut pieces are layered on the card front as shown in  the pic  using glue dots and dimensionals to give extra dimension to the card front.  The tomb stones are placed just behind the fence under the tree.

The swirl is cut from Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper with  the small swirl in the Swirly Scribbles Framelits.  The sentiment is silver embossed on velum and layered over the tree branches.  I love that you can see the shadow of the branch under the sentiment banner.

Final touches are popping that cute witch on top of the sparkly swirly and adding some Halloween Night Enamel Dots.  The finished card front is added to a base of Pumpkin Pie card stock.
