Creative Thursday Using featured Jeepers Creepers Paper Pack of the Month

 Jeepers Creepers is such a great paper pack to work with it is not just for Halloween themed cards of pages.  There are so many fun patterns and neutral colors that this time it is used to make an Encouragement card for someone who maybe in the doldrums or needs a pick me up.

What I used:
Colonial White Cardstock card layered with Black cardstock cut to fit just inside the edges and then cut the fun googly eyes with the zip strip attached at the top smaller to layer on top of the black.  I found in my stash a package of Good Life Complements and added colored stars, live colorfully banner and right now banner a couple of gold sequins.  The final touch was to use the Shimmer Brush  to highlight some of the stars and the eyes.

Be creative and remember if you have an y questions please do not hesitate to ask...All products are available at  http://cargren.closetomyheart.ca/

Creative Thursday - Jeepers Creepers Paper Package

People who know me know I love Halloween and I love the new Jeepers Creepers Paper Package.  

Did you know that each patterned paper in the paper packs has a Zip strip at the top of one side the page that coordinates with the page? 

On the card I used the Zip strip of little monsters to accent the zigzag pattern in the paper at the top and the middle of the card.
Items used:
Stamps: the acorn is from C1657 Woodland Critters and the Happy Halloween is from the D1698 Sugar Skull stamp sets. Cut by hand the banner and acorns and glued on the card with Bonding Memories Glue.

Exclusive inks stamp pad Chocolate
Shinhan Markers for pumpkin Marigold, Sap Green,Clay and Colorless blender . Once all colored and dry went over it with the Shimmer Brush to make it sparkle. Last but not least put three gold sequins and the card is finished.

Hope this card inspires you and if you have any questions or want to show me how this card may have inspired you, post in the comments below...For more information on our Close to my Heart products please go to   http://cargren.closetomyheart.ca/.
