While working Scrapfest a few weeks ago, I ran across this Rhonna Farrer "C'est Magnifique paper at Archivers. Tonite I was inspired to use it on Halloween cards because I'm in an orangey mood. I think it works o.k. for Halloween cards...what a surprise!Sometimes I just get tired of using the same colors over and over again. So tonite Halloween goes Caribbean blue & orange, mon.I've been experimenting with the Spellbinders Nestability Ovals that I bought from Ellen Hutson's store. The thing I really like about them is that they can be placed in the center of your paper to create frames, unlike the Marvy punches. So I set to work framing up these cards. Another fun thing to do is to run your paper through a cuttlebug embossing folder after cutting out the center. It gives it texture, and made the plain orange cardstock all matchy matchy with the Rhonna paper. I distressed the only orange paper with pumpkin pie ink to make the embossing stand out. Here's a photo of the embossing before distressing it. I still love this pumpkin-in-the-cemetary image from the Stampin Up set "Spooktacular Greetings". The witchy legs are from Stampendous, and the black cat image is from a new westrim set called "Halloween Boogie". Another look that I LOVE is faux stitching and doodling around the outside of your images. Since I'm doodling challenged, I love that you can use the spellbinder die as a template for your stitching or doodling. Just leave your paper in the die and trace, stitch or doodle following the template edge.
