I hope y'all had a great weekend! I know we're getting close to Halloween but as usual I'm still going to keep posting most likely right up until the day of. Everything has been bonkers and totally derailed all my Halloween card posts and I still have a ton of supplies and ideas to use!
Also IF you've missed any of my Halloween series this year here are the links to all the posts so far:
STAMPtember® Waffle Flower Exclusive: Sweet Tooth (bonus! not part of the series but still Halloween-themed!)
I did a combined Halloween/fall post for today - 2 cards using stamps and dies not meant for either season but easily adaptable for both:
I pulled out Honey Bee Stamps Shine On stamp set and decided to make the bottles using colors for each "theme" - so Halloween colors for a Halloween card and a more muted Fall palette to make a Fall-themed card.
I used Distress Inks to color in all the bottles - and for the "polish" parts I used my Tonic Aqua Shimmer pen instead of a water brush to do the watercoloring. It's hard to really see the sparkle in photos - but in real life they are SUPER sparkly when the light hits them!
I sponged the same colors on the bows and added Copic markers to intensify them before adhering them to the bottles. The sentiments were a combination of die cuts and heat embossed sentiments (from the HB Hey, Pumpkin! stamp set) that went with each theme.
For the insides of both cards I added another themed polish bottle and then stamped a sentiment from the Shine On stamp set and that was it!
