Halloween & Christmas

 I have a couple of fun cards to share with you today :)

Card #1
This is a new to my stash - Flight of Fancy by Stampin' Up!. I was completely inspired by the photo in the SU! catalogue showing off this set.
I created a mask for my moon and used distress inks to create the background. I flicked water over the panel and pressed down with some paper towel to create the texture. I also mixed some gold mica powder with water and flicked it on with a paint brush.
I coloured the image with polychromo pencils and fussy cut her out. She is popped up with foam tape.

The first photo doesn't show the shine of the mica powder. This photo isn't much good either but I hope you can see a bit of the shine :) The sentiment is from Lawn Fawns Spooky Village set.

Card #2
Another newbie to my stash. I bought the Cloudy Stencil by Lawn Fawn. Seriously, when I removed the stencil, the satisfaction of seeing the clouds was amazing! Remember the old days when you used to cut out a stencil? Not anymore, I LOVE this stencil.
I already had the Car Critters set by Lawn Fawn but decided to get the Christmas Add ons - they are adorable. The Santa is from the Tiny Christmas set.
I created the sentiment using words from the Ho-Ho-Holidays set. I wanted to include 'magic' in the sentiment as I had replaced Santa's sleigh with a flying car :)

I would like to enter my cards over at the following challenges -
Card #1 - Craft Rocket Challenges - Add Sparkle, Try it on Tuesdays (Halloween), Unicorn Challenges (Spooky or Cute), Mix it Up Challenge Blog (Distressing - Ink), Two Old Bats (Halloween)
Card #2 - Cute Card Thursday (Stamping), Fab 'n' Funky (Christmas), Ikes World (V is for Vehicles), Creative Sketchy Girls (Christmas)

As I have used a heap of NBUS, both cards will be linked up over at Darnell's blog.

  6. These are both so stinkin' cute, Kylie! I have to say if I were a witch, that would be me. Just sort of chubby and laid-back, twirling my little magic wand while my broom just hovered slowed in front of a brilliant moon. I'm pretty sure my other hand recently held a full-size candy bar, which I dispatched, hence that contented look on my face! I love how you made a perfect Halloween sky, complete with mica schparkle! And c'mon, who can't imagine a modern day Santa, having retired the sleigh and reindeers, now making his rounds in a fun-mobile?! You did an amazing job with the cloud stencil and itty-bitty Lawn Fawn images and I love your choice of sediments! Thank you so much for sharing with everyone at NBUS! I hope your whole family is keeping well! Hugs, Darnell
