Gina K Mid Month Challenge Hop

Hello! Welcome to the mid month Gina K Design Team Challenge Hop! This month assignment was to create a card inspired by your autumn memory. (Note: for the challenge we were supposed to use newly released stamp sets but I totally forgot and selected a stamp set that fit perfectly with my favorite memories. Oopsie--five lashings with a wet noodle for me :)

Here is my Favorite Autumn Memory inspired card:

This card uses Feel the Magic set (which was illustrated by Gina's daughter Alicia). I adore this set and come back to it time and time again. My favorite autumn memories always seem to center around Halloween---seeing my kiddos dress up and the excitement they have about going trick or treating; carving pumpkins; hanging with friends; stomping through leaves; seeing all the neighborhood kids dressed up! LOVE it all!

I paper pieced a lot of the witches outfit and used Copics to color the skin and eyes. I added some crystal stickles to her hair and to the eyes and mouth of the jack-o-lantern. I love the fun glow it adds to the card.
I stamped the sentiment and highlighted the "witch" for obvious reasons. I finished it off with a few die cut stars and rhinestones.

Here is a close up of the cutie witch:

Materials used: Stamps- Feel the Magic (Gina K Designs); white cardstock-Gina K Designs; Patterned paper- Halloween mini deck (Recollections), Die cut Newsprint Spellbound (Making Memories); Canvas border stickers (Little Yellow Bicycle); Memento tuxedo black ink; Copic markers; crystal stickles (Ranger); twinkle rhinestone stickers (a muse); ribbon; hemp.
