Tricks for Treats

Hi! It's Autumn already and Halloween is just around the corner. It's perfect time for stamps for this holiday. Sparkle N Sprinkle revealed a cute Halloween stamp set in September - A Puppy's Halloween. On my card I used colored image from A Puppy's Halloween Digital Set and added some sparkle and shine to it.

Image is cut out with Spellbinders die (Labels Eighteen). With Sakura Glue Pen I adhered Autumn Frost Microfine Glitter to the broom and ground. Puppy's nose and eyes are covered with Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops. The buckle of his hat is covered with Medium tip Nuvo Glue Pen. After glue was dried tacky I added Nuvo Gilding Flakes (Sunkissed Copper). I wanted fun embellishments around the Puppy so I took a random color of Nuvo Crystal Drops (Neptune Turquoise in this case) and squeezed some dots to non-stick craft mat and covered them with Hyacinth Microfine Glitter. After they ware dry, I glued them to my card and added few more dots with Dandelion Yellow Crystal Drops.
For the matting layer I used same Spellbinders die as a template and traced the outer edge to the cardstock. After cutting it out with scissors I covered edges with Nuvo Glue Pen (Medium tip) and adhered image layer in center. After glue was dried tacky I covered it with Hyacinth Microfine Glitter.

Sentiment is from same digital set. I placed it on top of yellow background and printed them out together. I used largest die from Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Two set to cut it out. Edges of the label and decorative elements around the sentiment are covered with Medium size Nuvo Glue Pen. After glue was dried tacky I added Sunkissed Copper Nuvo Gilding Flakes on top. The bow is made from piece of 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape which was covered from both sides with Autumn Frost Glitter. 

To the left side of the label I adhered a strip of glittered ribbon (Watch Glitter Ribbon Technique tutorial). I used piece of 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape and covered it with Autumn Frost Glitter. Dots of Dandelion Yellow Nuvo Crystal Drops was added on top. 

For the background I used orange paper and ran it through Lattice Embossing Folder by Creative Expressions. Background needed more color so I took Aubergine Nuvo Embellishment Mousse and added it with sponge to some parts.
Edges of the matting layer are covered with 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape. After adhering embossed background in center of matting layer, I covered rest of the tape with  Hyacinth Microfine Glitter.
