I wanted to create a clean and simple card today, cause you know it’s TUESDAY and do you know what that means? Yep, it’s time for a NEW challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments!! This time we are playing with colors and I thought it would be FUN to pair it with a sketch, although I couldn’t find one I liked BUT I did come across this theme challenge that would go great with the one for Hand Stamped Sentiments. Check out what I created-
This FUN and simple card would be great for any other occasion as well, but it is a super FUN Halloween themed card. I went with the Trick or Treat sentiment from the TAGS 4 YOU set, FUN!! Honestly don’t you LOVE the sequins? I LUVS THEM SOOOO MUCH!! Years ago I made felt stockings for Christmas for my family and I came across a fairly large bag of sequins the other day and thought- “Hey, those sparkle I can’t throw them out!” So glad I didn’t cause I am quite smitten with them… careful- you might see them more and more on my creations!
I just LOVE these things! So believe it or not, I didn’t have sequences in every color but that doesn’t stop me! I pulled out my PLETHORA of sharpies and colored me up some sequin!!! I LUVS me sharpies too!! I used the Chevron Embossing Folder and some card stock strips to make the chevron background pattern. I simply cut out a single strip from the embossed piece and secured it down with glue dots, cause it was EASY! I even had some small sequin and made quick use of them, check it out-
I loved using the colors for this weeks Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge: Basic Black, Tangerine Tango, Garden Green, Elegant Eggplant and pairing that with the clean and simple theme challenge of Sequins and Chevron from CAS-ual Fridays.
