Retro Rubber Challenge Blog #73 - Halloween

Tuesday, October 10, 2017

Hello everyone!

Welcome to another wonderful challenge with Retro Rubber!  The challenge for the next couple of weeks is "Make a Halloween Card".  I love making autumn cards, I love the rich colors of orange, brown, green and purple.  I hope you will play along with us!  To play along with the Retro Rubber Challenges you must use a stamp set that is at least a year old and tell us how old your stamp set is.

Here is my take on the challenge.  The adorable pumpkins are made by Joy Clair, called Trick or Treat.  The set was  released sometime in October 2015.  This set is adorable it has many elements in the set that you can add to the pumpkins.

Here is how I created my card:

1.  A2 card, 4 1/14 x 5 1/2, the orange layer is 4 x 5 1/4, the white layer is 3 7/8 x 5 1/8,
2.  I stamped the pumpkin images from the Joy Clair stamp set called Trick or Treat, I masked the images so they could be in a group,
3.  I colored the pumpkins with copics - Y17, Y38 and YR68, the stem is YG67,
4.  I stamped the images on the pumpkins with onyx black versafine ink pad,
5.  I die cut the  "Happy Halloween", I cut it out with black cardstock, but before I did that I added some 1/2 inch score tape to the back of the paper so when I die cut the words it would be ready to stick down on my card.  The words are so thin it would have been hard to add any adhesive to it,
6.  I added some black splatter to the card,
7.  I finished the card off by adding some orange enamel dots.

  6. Those pumpkins!! Love them - they are trying to be scary but just make you smile. Your coloring is perfect!! I am assuming that you curved the die cut sentiment and that is my favorite touch of the card. Now to go find some 1/2" tear and tape...
