TCCC blog DT card 1 for 15 October 2019

CARD 1 using Decosse's Trick or Treat Washi Tapes Set for my design team inspiration project for The Crafter's Café Challenge blog #229=

above is my personalized DT badge for TCCC blog
#229 themes are= using a stencil &/OR Halloween OR purple, orange, & black

below is her preview image of the set

**Thanks to Lisa Decosse for approving my idea of using the whole set of washi tapes to create  patterned papers!!! The layouts aren't perfect if you look too closely to the angles of many of the cuts made to the ends. I printed out each washi tape design at the wallet size setting, so even though that's the smallest size option with my printer, I still had to cut some of the designs in half (width or depth-wise) and most in some length variation. This one set of washi tapes provided enough to create the diagonal patterning on the 4.25" x 6.25" black paper x 2.

The darkest purple CS for the card base's dimensions are 5" x 7". Glitter paper and orange paper have sizes in between the base and the black background.

**Other supplies used besides the digital washi tape designs print-outs and papers are: different colored gem dots, square gold gem strips, old alpha stickers, gold metallic paint pen, and a wood pumpkin & leaf die-cuts along with glue stick and glue dots. --And don't adjust your screen!!! I deliberately skewed the black and orange layers to add to the craziness (besides our funky weather!).

other challenge blogs or Facebook groups where this card or posting will be linked=
a. Little Red Wagon #518= theme is "cut-it-out"; I had to do lots of fussy cutting! Each washi tape design was printed in the center of the sheet, so each one had to be cut out and then almost all of them were either cut in half depth-wise and/or cut to be shortened.

b. Use Your Stuff #378 = theme is "use a pumpkin(s)"; on my project I've got the wooden one

c. a new challenge blog for me-- Incy Wincy Designs challenge blog: October 7-19, 2019= Fall Colors theme; on my card I've used purple, orange, lime green, and black with some yellow

d. Scrapping 4 Fun Challenges blog #151= theme is anything goes with warm colours; my card has orange and some yellow which are warm colors

e. my personal page on Facebook

f. Mixed Media Creativity group on Facebook; sharing site for mixed media projects; my card uses cardstock, glitter paper, solid papers in black and orange, wood die-cuts, gem dots, and digital images that were printed on paper; and also gold metallic paint pen

g. PPPDTC group on Facebook; a sharing site for crafting bloggers

I'm not crazy about Halloween, at least the scary gory devilish aspects, but the color palette of this card is such a bright contrast to other traditional autumn palettes that I just happen to love how this turned out.

Stick around and make sure to look at the other card made with the same DDD Trick or Treat Washi Tapes set that is featured in its own blog post....
