After last years success and feedbacks, I have decided to have a last minute Halloween Card Series this year too. Just to get you in the mood 🙂 I don’t make really scary cards, rather “not too spooky but rather cute”. I hope you will enjoy it!
My first card in the series features Pink and Main stamps, dies and stencils. I used older products but they are still available in the Pink and Main online store. I love to go back to enjoy and rediscover my stamps and dies.
For my Halloween card I stamped and coloured the images from the Witch House stamp set. It is so whimsical, I really enjoyed using unrealistic colours. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. It makes the edges so rounded, I could never achieve that with scissors!
I wanted a dreamy background for my scene, so I used Wilted Violet Distress Oxide with the Clouds stencil to make a night sky on a top folding white card base. I added purple, black and white splatters when I was done and spritzed it all with a clear shimmer mist. We can never have enough sparkle, can we?
I also die cut a piece of patterned paper from the Not too spooky paper pad using the Stitched Scallop waves die set, and backed it with a black wavy piece. I white heat embossed a sentiment on it.
I assembled the scene using liquid glue and 3D foam squares. I also stamped an additional 2 sentiments in black, it adds to the background and makes the scene complete. As final touches, I used a clear shimmer pen and glossy accents to emphasize some details. I also added some funny Eerie eyes from Doodlebug to the frog, and mini google eyes to the poisonous pot. Instead of doing the same with the bats, I simply used a black glaze pen to make their eyes shining.
I hope you got inspired and you will dig your stash and re-visit older sets. See you tomorrow!
