Inlaid Die Cuts Halloween

Found inspiration in Dina Kowal's Splitcoast tutorial this week.  Perfect opportunity to use coordinating stamps & dies from Papertrey Ink.   Aren't the cats adorable?  Couldn't resist sequins and twine and little stars..


Stamps & Dies: PTI  Superstition & Full Moon
Paper :  SU  Tangerine Tango, Elegant Eggplant,   Smokey Slate, Misc. Textured Grey
Ink:  SU Crushed Curry, TT, EE, Basic Grey
SU  oval punch 
Technique:  Inlaid Die Cuts

The moon , yellow cat, broom, and grey cat in the pumpkin were all die cut from scraps of paper and stamped in coordinating ink. Those dies were also used to cut the shapes from the card front as explained in the tutorial.  The stamped shapes were used to replace the shapes cut out of the card front.  All are held in place with tape on the back.   (Got it?)    The clouds are stamped in Basic Grey and the witches hat & sentiment label are popped up with foam tape.  I'll be sending this card to my home town friends whose 2 cats resemble these.
