Ready for more Fall inspiration from LDRS Creative? This time I'm switching gears from Autumn to Halloween!
The Haunted Halloween 6x6 Paper Pack has been WILDLY popular - and I know why! There are gorgeous colors, patterns, and even ready made scenes! That's a win for me!

Who says pine trees stay green? Oh, everyone? I've taken some creative liberties with today's card and given the LDRS Creative Pine Tree Forest Stamp Set some Autumn color!
This card was so easy to to make and can be easily mass produced. And if you don't love the look of Autumn colored evergreens you can always re-create this design with traditional colors for a holiday card!

It's just a few days before Halloween and I have a quick trio of Halloween cards featuring Glitz Glitter Gel to share with you!
These three cards only took me about an hour to complete from start to finish - including dry time! Now that's my idea of a quick card! We are just days away from Halloween and these cute and spooky cards would be perfect for last minute projects. I'm showing off three different colors of Glitz Glitter Gel - one original and two neons. These make the perfect spooky backgrounds!
Let's just jump right in! I created my first background with Screamin' Green Neon Glitz Glitter Gel. Doesn't it look like it glows!? It's fabulous! I lightly sprayed the back of the Kindred Stamps Jack O' Lantern Stencil with Pixie Spray and temporarily adhered it onto a piece of A2 black cardstock. I used a Stencil Pal and spread the Screamin' Green Neon Glitz Glitter Gel over the stencil. I like to add a thick layer with the Neon Glitz Glitter Gels so that they are more Opaque, but you don't have to.
I used a baby wipe and cleaned my stencil and placed it onto another piece of black cardstock. I forgot to wipe the back of my stencil, so I had enough Pixie Spray left on my stencil that I didn't need to add more. But this mistake proves advantageous in the end! I again used my Stencil Pal and spread some Orange Glow Neon Glitz Glitter Gel over the Jack O' Lantern Stencil. When I removed my stencil I realized I didn't do a good job wiping off my stencil and I had some Screamin' Green Glitz Glitter Gel transfer onto my Orange Glow design. At first I thought I should re-do it, but I quite like the look! It's like a double glow! It's very subtle, but a fun little surprise!
It's an InkOn3 Inspriation Week! Myself and the rest of the design team are sharing projects using the new colors of Atelier Ink. They are just gorgeous! My card today features some pretty ink blending with the new Sweet Petunia Pink and Trinity Teal Atelier Inks.
I just love the new colors of Atelier Ink! I wanted to show both of them off since they pair so well. I masked off the top portion of my card and blended on Sweet Petunia Pink Atelier Ink onto the bottom portion of my card. These Atelier Inks blend so smoothly! They're just gorgeous. I moved my masking tape to cover the bottom of my card and started working on the top portion. I blended the Trinity Teal Atelier Ink in quarter of an inch strips with half an inch of white space separating them. This is such a simple masked design, but I just love it! I kept the masking tape in place over the pink bottom and added some black ink spatters to the top for more texture.
I used Blackout Hybrid Detail Ink to stamp the cute little peeking kitty and party hat from the Purr-ific Kitty Cats Stamp Set and colored them with Copic Markers. I trimmed around the outside of the images with my scissors leaving a small white border. I adhered them onto my card with foam tape so that he would be peeking over the pink "edge" of my card and added a stamped sentiment below the image.
I thought I had a bit too much Sweet Petunia Pink blended at the bottom of my card and the balance was off, so I trimmed down my panel and added it onto a white card base. A bit of Liquid Pixie Dust on my little kitty finishes the card! Thanks for joining me!
