Love Your Guts - Halloween Themed Love Card

Today I want to share a card I made using products from My Favorite Things, Lawn Fawn, and Simon Says Stamp.


First I started with a piece of Canson watercolor paper taper down to a board. I painted a very simple background using my Gansai Tambi watercolors. I used color numbers 37, 139, and 38. Next I stamped two of the pumpkin images from the My Favorite Things stamp set "Which Way Is The Candy." I took out some of the cute little faces from the Lawn Fawn stamp set "Thanks a Bushel" and stamped them on my pumpkins.


I colored in my pumpkins with Copic markers. I used YR02, YR04, and YR07 for the main portion of the pumpkins and for the stems I used YG17 and YG67. For the sentiment I chose a stamp from the Simon Says Stamp stamp set "Simple Sentiments No. 1." The sentiment says "Love Your Guts." I thought that that was hilarious and worked well with the pumpkins. Because...guts...pumpkins...get it?! I stamped the sentiment on black cardstock with Versamark ink and embossed it in a white embossing powder. I glued the sentiment strip onto a piece of vellum to give it a little bit of a border.


I popped up my watercolor panel to a card base with foam tape. I also popped up my sentiment and pumpkins onto the watercolor panel. Then I used my black Prismacolor pencil to add a drop-shadow under the two pumpkins.


For the finishing touches on this card I added highlights to my pumpkins with a white gel pen. I also took the gel pen and added a border on the watercolor panel using my T-square ruler. I added a ton of tiny star sequins above the pumpkins using Tombow glue. Finally I went over the sentiment with my Wink of Stella glitter brush.
