Welcome to Poppystamps Blog Blitz!
I hope everyone [in the USA] had a great 4th of July celebration. While most of the country was thinking of traditional American summer food, I was thinking toward cool temps and Halloween.
This card leverages some wonderful new dies from Poppystamps latest release. The first of which is the Classic Brick Fireplace. This versatile die can be used for a Christmas Fireplace awaiting Santa or, in this case, a spooky fireplace awaiting a cauldron of wicked potions.
I love the new Spider Web Border die. I placed it on the top of the card and trimmed the rightmost edge off. This was perfect to put in the corner of the fireplace.
Next, I ran the Fireplace logs die through in a dark brown color for the logs. Then I built the fire by running the Warm and Cozy fire through red, orange and yellow cardstock. I stacked several layers of the flames to provide a big fire.
Then I cut two cats and placed them on top of the mantel. To spice it up a little bit, I added rhinestones in the center of the webs and as a collar on one of the cats. I only had clear rhinestones so I used an orange marker and colored them to make it more along the color theme of Halloween.
I finished the card by using Boo from the Scary Background die. I hope you enjoy this card and find a couple of Poppystamps dies from the new release that will make your Halloween extra spooky!
