Frightfully Sweet Halloween – MFT & Friends

Frightfully Sweet Halloween – MFT & Friends

August 14, 2018
Hello crafty friends!  It’s time for the latest MFT & Friends!  This is where the MFT Design Team and a number of Guest Designers are challenged to look at the latest release with a fresh set of eyes and come up with more crafty inspiration!
For my card today, I used the BB Frightfully Sweet Set and created a fun but spooky background scene to go with my images.

To start, I first diecut a piece of masking paper using the largest circle die from the Circle STAX Die-namics Set 1.  I then placed this circle on the lower center of a 5.75′ x 4.5″ piece of Smooth White Card Stock.  I then created my night sky background by blending some Distress Inks (Stormy Sky, Faded Jeans Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot) around this circle.  Lastly, I spritzed this lightly with water, blotted with a paper towel and then splattered some white paint on top to resemble stars.

Once this panel was dry, I then blended my grass on top with the Grass Stencil and some Black Soot Distress Ink.
I love how easy it is to use this stencil.  It’s absolutely perfect for adding layers without adding too much dimension.

Using my Cool Gray Copics and a Colorless Blender, (0, C00, C0, C2, C4, C5), I then added some craters and texture to my moon.  I then trimmed my panel down the standard A2 card base size of 4.25″ x 5.5″.

I stamped all of my images with Copic friendly Black Ink onto smooth white card stock, colored with Copic Sketch Markers and then used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

Lastly, I heat embossed my sentiment with White Detail Embossing Powder and added my images with some 3D Foam Adhesive Squares.
