Tilda With Pumpkin at Friday Sketchers 71



Wooooohooooo!!! It's Friday!!! So a very happy Friday to everyone!!! That means it's Friday Sketchers time!!


This week is hosted by the magnificently talented Jeanette from Canada who has made for us a fun and exciting sketch for certain!!!! I hope you will come over to Friday Sketchers to see the absolutely lovely sample cards from the other Design Team members. Please join with us this week in showing us your card using Jeanette's splendidly fun sketch.


I used Bazzill for the base, SU CS for all matting, and all the DP is BG Eerie. I also used little cute Tilda With Pumpkin from the Autumn and Halloween Collection 2008 -- she is coming VERY soon to Magnolia-licious so you better grab her as soon as she is available!!!! Tilda was stamped twice, colored with Copics, cut out, and propped up on dimensional tape. After stitching all of the major panels both inside and outside I realized that I wanted something more pronounced on the front so I added black rick rack...why do I always have to look that word up in the dictionary??? lol...I also used part of a batwing in one corner which was a gift from the very talented Claudia, who I hope doesn't mind that I did surgery on the bat to make it look like a spider web...I also added a Halloween button and a bat button and made a dangle charm from a pumpkin bead. Then I added a touch of lavender organza ribbon and Prima flower and a bit of Autumn FlowerSoft at Tilda's feet. The front was finished!!!! Then I got very brave and decided to emboss the Spider, which is available now at Magnolia-licious. Wrong decision!!! I did all of the correct things, I thought!!! But embossing powder went everywhere at about the time the heat gun came on...lolol...I took this picture because it had to be ready for the FS blog...I DID NOT GIVE TILDA A NOSE!!!! but I have had to replace that whole Tilda panel....sigh....BUT the next time I did the Spider FIRST!!!!! lolol

The inside of the card was a bit time consuming this time and I hope you will click on the above picture so you can read the names on the tombstones....Too Funny!!!! On the first panel I made a door and a MS punched fence using some wood paper from Sue at McMahon Five Designs. That is amazing paper, let me tell you!!! I added a few Caspers, a bat button, a black cat button on the fence, a tombstone for I.M. Knotwell, and a spooky tree. The doorknob and hinges are Stickles. Finally I added more FlowerSoft to the base of the fence and tree. And when you open that cute door......there's a skeleton and a Casper and a BOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
And for the jotting panel I used a stickled spider web in the corner, another spooky tree button, a Casper, and a tombstone for MRS. ANITA NEWBODY!!!!!! hahahhahahah...So Do I!!!!!!!

Thank you so much for coming by to see what's happening here and I would appreciate it alot if you would let me know what you think of my spooky/funny Halloween card!!! Have a delightfully wonderful weekend...and I hope you will come back to see me real soon...Maggie hugs for everyone!!!!

Jodie from Oz said...

Oh my Jacque, amazing. I love everything about this work of art. The detail added from the rik rak to the funny little headstones. Love the opening door with the skeleton & ghosts waiting to pounce, the flower soft, the wooden fence to the little charms. Thanks so much again for so much inspiration.

Aud said...

OH, WOOOW! What a card! Stunning and amazing! So fun and lots of great details! Love it!♥♥♥
Those tombstones just crack me up! *LOL*

Embossing powder can be soooo hard to work with, I know from experience. Now I rarely use it, but if I am to use it, I use colored ink and clear EP, that gives less spots. But always, before I stamp, I use a DRY micro fiber cloth to wipe the paper, takes away most of the static electricity, so the powder only clings where it supposed to...

Sorry for rambling away here... ;o)

Have a wonderful weekend!

Big hugs,
Aud
