October Challenge: Punches & Dies

Hi, friends!  We've got a brand new challenge this month AND something a little NEW and EXCITING!!!  First, let's take a peek at what our challenge is...

We're asking you to use...

A PUNCH or A DIE or BOTH!

And now let's talk about the exciting news, shall we?  Starting this month, I will be sharing a written or video tutorial with you regarding the card I made!  This month, you get BOTH!

Here's the card I've made~
More details on my personal blog HERE.

And the video tutorial on how to make those "punch-kins"~



And now a quick written tutorial on how to create the background for a card like this!  It's super simple and I'm 100% sure that you have everything you need to make it already.  Just be willing to improvise, ok?

What you'll need:
  • White cardstock
  • Desired inks (I used 2 shades of orange and 2 shades of purple plus black for the sentiment.)
  • Sponges or a blending tool
  • Glimmer mist or a spray bottle
  • A circle punched from scrap paper
  • Removeable adhesive (or just a small bit of non-removable--for masking)
  • Sentiment
  • Heat tool (Optional--I'm lazy. ;) )
How to:
  • Start by positioning the circle and adhering it where you want your "moon" to be located.
  • Sponge or blend on your colors.
  • Spray with water or glimmer mist.
  • Either wait for it to dry or use your heat tool to dry it more quickly.
  • Take off the circular mask.
  • Stamp the sentiment. 
  • Add a bit of glitter to the moon if desired.
  • Finish your card!
See!  Super simple! Thanks for popping over today, friends!  Come back on Monday for MORE inspiration from this very talented Design Team!  We hope you join in the fun, too--please check out our House Rules HERE before linking up!  HUGS and happy stamping to you all!  Can't wait to see your creations!
