Heeeeyyyyyy everyone! SO excited to start my 2017 Halloween Card Series!!! Just an FYI that these videos will be random throughout the coming weeks - I can't stick to a schedule to save my life (what else is new). Also make sure to stay tuned to the end of the post for the GIVEAWAY info.
Here's my first card:
I decided to pull out one of my older stamp sets to make this card - Simon Says Stamp's Hey Pumpkin set. This has been one of my favourite Halloween sets for years now.
I decided to do a one-layer card and experiment with some watercolor, so I pulled out Arches cold press watercolour paper to make my card base, and Mission Gold watercolours to color it all in.
After all the watercolor was dry I added some gloss and shimmer to the pumpkin by coating it with my Pico Shimmer Embellisher. I then added some Pretty Pink Posh Iridescent Confetti Stars, and added some gloss to the cat's eyes with my Sakura Black Glaze pen.
I kept the inside of the card simple and stamped the cat with SSS Orange Slush ink then stamped the Happy Halloween sentiment from the set in black and that was it!
To see how this card came together check out my video below:

I get asked a lot about where to purchase the supplies I use in my videos and blog posts. I list all the supplies I use at the end of my posts (below) or in the description box directly below my video on YouTube. If the product images have sets of letters below the image it means there's more than one place it can be purchased. SSS = Simon Says Stamp, AZ = Amazon, MFT = My Favourite Things, SnS = Scrap N Stamp (Canada) etc. Compensated affiliate links used when possible at no extra cost to you. Affiliate linking is what keeps my blog and YouTube channel up and running and enables me to work from home with my kids! I appreciate your support more than words can say!
I occasionally receive product for free from stores/manufacturer with no obligation on my part to use/review - I only use and share what I personally love. Everything else I purchase myself!
I had asked y'all on my Facebook Page and Instagram if anyone would be interested if I were to do giveaways of the Halloween cards as I post them. I was overwhelmed by the positive response (you guys are amazing) - so that's what I'm going to do! Every Halloween card I post there will be a Rafflecopter widget at the end of the post that you can follow the steps in, a random winner will be chosen and I'll fill out and mail the card to the winner from each post!
Good luck and THANK YOU! You all make my day reading all your sweet comments and just taking the time out of your day to visit me here! <3 <3 <3
ETA: CONGRATS to Nicole!! :)
