I thought creating this scene card for a friend who loves Halloween and interactive cards would be a perfect opportunity to take the new Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Pop Ups Die for a spin. In fact, other than some white and black card stock, glue, scissors, Distress Inks and Copic markers, all the products I used are from Lawn Fawn!
I made the background sky by blending on some Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Shaded Lilac, Seedless Preserves, Wilted Violet and Black Soot. I cut out a circle and lightly dabbed some Pumice Stone Distress Ink on it and around the edges to create a moon. I stamped out a few bats from the Lawn Fawn Happy Haunting stamp set and then went over the top of them with a black Sakura Glaze Pen to give them a bit of shine and depth in front of the moon. Then I stamped out and hand fussy cut a couple of spooky barren trees from black card stock. Lastly I stamped out the haunted house from the same stamp set and colored it up with Copic N5, N7 and Y13 and Y17 for the windows (I doodled some cracks, spider webs, and tattered curtains in the windows to add some fun spooky details). To make the haunted house more of a “character” in the scene, I popped it up on foam adhesive to bring it forward a bit.
To construct the pop up structure, I used one of the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside dies for the background and the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Pop Ups Die for the foreground layers all with black card stock. To reinforce the layer on which I attached a piece of clear plastic (salvaged from some packaging) with a brad to create the interactive mechanism for the trick-or-treating masked owl to fly across the sky, I used an extra piece of black card stock using another one of the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside dies and lined up this extra piece behind the pop up layer piece. I LOVE how all of the Lawn Fawn hillside dies match up like this!
Then for all the Lawn Fawn Critters in Costume, I used lots of Copic markers, but kept everything in the black, purple or yellow-orange color scheme. These are the marker colors I used:
Masked owl: W3, 5, 7, 9 and Y13 and Y17; Trick-or-treat bag (from the Lawn Fawn Booyah stamp set): V12, 15 and 17
Bear in bee costume: Wings: V12 and 15; Bear: W0, 1, and 3; Bee costume: N5 and 7
Bunny in pumpkin: Pumpkin: W3, Y13 and Y17; Stem: N5 and 7; Bunny: W0 and W1
Cat witch: Hat and broom (broom from the Lawn Fawn Booyah stamp set): W3, Y13, Y17, V12, V15, and V17; Cat: W7 and W9
Squirrel angel: Halo: Y17; Squirrel: W3 and W5
To add a little something to the card base “floor” I stamped out two witches brooms from the Lawn Fawn Happy Haunting stamp set and colored them up with N5, N7, Y13, W3 and W5. For the sentiment that the brooms would flank, I used the “Happy Halloween” sentiment from Lawn Fawn Booyah stamp set and colored up the background with an ombre look with V12, 15 and 17.
I used the coordinating dies to cut out all the critters and adhered all but the masked owl and the squirrel angel to the various layers of the pop up stiched hillsides. I used E6000 to glue the masked owl to the plastic strip that I attached with a brad to the middle layer of the pop up. Lastly I cut a little strip of black card stock that I folded in half to attach to the back of the squirrel angel and the “ground” of the card to add just a bit more dimension to this already super dimensional card.
