Scrap'n Stamp It's Halloween October Blog Hop

Welcome to the Scrap'n Stamp October Blog Hop.
 This month the design team is featuring colours from the season being purple, orange and green. 
#SNSpurpleorangegreen
This month we are trying something new. We would like to invite you to play along with our blog hop this month. Check out on our new Facebook Challenge Page to play along. 

We also have three (3) $25.00 gift certificates to give away, so be sure to leave comments as you go through the hop to have your name entered for the drawing by October 25th. The draw will be held on October 26th and announced on the Scrap'n Stamp Blog.

These colours are fabulous together and screech Halloween for me, so I went with Halloween for one of my cards, where I used a new stamp set from Lawn Fawn called Pick of the Patch, which is just too cute. For my second card I used another Lawn Fawn set called Pumpkin Spice.

Starting with the It's Halloween card, I first masked off the area for the moon, then did a distress oxide background with wilted violet and twisted citron. I removed the mask and covered the sky area to do the moon, using squeezed lemonade and fossilized amber. Covering the grass area, I splattered the top of the card with water droplets. I then stamped the trees using Ranger's Jet Black ink then added Wink of Stella to some of the droplets and the tree branches and set aside to dry.
I stamped the pumpkins and squirrels on watercolour paper using Ranger Archival Inks in Monarch Orange for the pumpkins and Sepia for the Squirrels, cut them out, and watercoloured with distress inks in fossilized amber, carved pumpkin and ripe persimmon on the pumpkins. For the squirrels I used gathered twigs, hickory smoke and frayed burlap mixed with barn door.
On a piece of card stock I sponged on the fossilized amber and wilted violet, forming the moon in the sponging, then stamped and heat embossed my sentiment using white embossing powder. I die cut the sentiment and attached using foam dots. I then arranged the pumpkins and squirrels and attached, using foam squares for a few.
I finished up by stamping a face on one of the pumpkins along with adding a few sequins in various colours.
My second card is a fast and simple card to make.
I first stenciled an area of my card base using distress oxide in wilted violet. I stamped the cup on watercolour paper and painted the cup with twisted citron,  I used walnut stain to paint the cocoa and antique linen on the whip cream. I cut out the cup and attached it using foam squares. I then stamped the sentiment with Ranger's monarch orange, and finished my card with a few gumdrops in the challenge colours. 
I hope you have enjoyed these cards today as much as I enjoyed making them. 

On to the rest of the hop, next up is Nancy

Your cards are beautiful! I love all your creations, you are an inspiration truly. :) I was wondering with your first card, (unless I am missing it) what die you used to cut out your sentiment? I have never seen one like that, it is pretty, looks like a piece of wood to match the outdoors. Thanks adnilttoh@gmail.com
