Halloween Card Series 2018 – Day 2


Hello Everyone,

I am back today with a one layer card as the second in my Halloween Card Series this year. I used my favourite Halloween stamp set from Newton’s Nook Designs called Newton’s Boo-tiful night. They have recently launched coordinating dies too, which are fantastic!

Today is a special day as Janis at Her Peaceful Garden starts her yearly Cat Lovers Hop! More info on this on her blog. Newton’s Nook Designs is sponsoring this event with a 25 USD gift certificate to a randomly drawn winner. All you need to do is to link up a cat-themed project till Saturday 27th Oct to Janis’s blog.


I started with stamping and colouring the kitty on the broom with Copic markers. The coordinating die cuts that little hole above the tail of the cat, such a gorgeous little detail!


Then I made a circle mask from masking paper and adhered it to a top folding heavy weight white note card. I sponged Wilted Violet distress ink around the circle with a very light hand. Before removing the mask, I added some purple and black splatters.


After removing the mask I made the harsh line of the moon a bit softer using Milled Lavender distress ink. I also added a bit of texture with grey Copics. Then I used the Bats stencil from Newton’s Nook Designs and black soot distress ink to add a bunch of flying bats.


I stamped a sentiment from the Handwritten Halloween stamp set from Simon Says Stamp using black ink. I popped up the kitty with 3D foam squares and added a sprinkle of purple sequins and silver star confetti. A little glossy accent on the hat and some dots on the cheeks with a white gel pen finished off this one layer card.


I hope you like today’s inspiration and you will pop in again tomorrow.

See you,

  2. OMG! I love this card! Love how you coloured your cat black to as black cats are my favourite and all that I have ever owned. Love the background that you created and the added sequence makes it pop!
