Spooky Night Circles Halloween Card

Remember the Sketch Book I made a couple years ago with different card layouts and measurements? I found a whole box of them when we moved! If you didn't get one when it first came out, you should check it out! Click here for all the details.

I took out the Sketch Book last month and in one day, designed 10 new cards using the Sketch Book layouts and new Holiday Catalog products! Here is one of the cards I made. This layout is really great for showing off designer paper. Since I didn't buy any new Halloween stamp sets, I cut out pumpkins from the designer paper to use as the focal point and grabbed a greeting from one of my favorite stamp sets: Tiny Tiny Wishes.

Stamp of the Month Painted Harvest Card Kit

One of my favorite stamp sets in the new Holiday Catalog is the Painted Harvest stamp set. I love the gorgeous watercolor look. The hallmark of the stamp set is the two-step sunflower image. When I designed cards for this month's Stamp of the Month Club card kit, I wanted to make a card without using the sunflower. So here is the first card in my Painted Harvest trio!

Painted Harvest Sunflower Card for GDP104

Yesterday, I was designing cards with the Painted Harvest stamp set for my Stamp of the Month Club card kit. Sometimes to help get my creative juices flowing, I will use a sketch or look at other cards for inspiration. I remembered the Global Design Project Challenge this week is to CASE a card by Canadian Demonstrator Alison Okamitsu. I used a couple ideas from her card: the words stamped in the background and the main element in the middle with a bow in the right bottom corner -- but ended up changing the layout to be vertical.

Here's Alison's original card. Click here to see how the Global Design Project Team was inspired by this card and play along in this week's challenge!

[9/18/17: Edited to Add: Woo hoo!! My card received a Special Mention from the Global Design Project Team!]

I didn't end up using this card design for my card kit, but it did help get me rolling on my other card designs. Here's a little peak at my Painted Harvest Card Kit. I'll be posting close-up pics over the next week. Learn More about my Stamp of the Month Club for stampers in the United States.
