Too Cute To Spook! ~ TupeloDesignsLLC

Good morning~  It's my turn to post for TupeloDesignsLLC and since Halloween is right around the corner I thought I'd inspire you with some dies from Elizabeth Craft Design that are just too cute to spook!

The Pumpkins die set from Elizabeth Craft Designs can be used with or without the carved pumpkin faces, making these dies very versatile. 

Since I knew I wanted to pair the pumpkins up with this happy little Ghost   I opted to use the faces on this card.  I tucked some Garden Notes Ivy behind the pumpkins.  To deepen the colors and add dimension to the pumpkins and ivy leaves, I blended Distress Inks onto the dies before adhering them to the card front.

I created another card using the same Pumpkins die without the faces.

I cut the ghost out of polka dotted vellum and skipped using the ghost shadow for a completely different look.  I tucked the vellum ghost behind the Elizabeth Craft Designs Iron Fence.  

The background was made by masking off the moon and blending distress inks in different shades of blue, then removing the mask and blending in the colors of the moon.  I splattered the backround with water to remove some of the color to look like stars.
The sentiments on both cards are from the ECD Spooky Sentiments set.  

I hope you're inspired by todays projects.

I love cute for Halloween rather than scary and both of these are fabulous. Great coloring on everything and I love the vellum ghost peeking from behind the fence!
