Halloween is just around the corner, but I still have so many card ideas to share! I wish I could just stop the time and craft craft craft…
Today I brought you a quite simple card idea. I fell in love with this cute ghost by Picket Fence Studios, so it ended up in my cart when I was shopping at Simon Says Stamp during STAMPtember. I could not let the Halloween season pass without using this stamp. So I just coloured it with Copics bearing in mind the Reverse Confetti Abundant Autumn patterned paper I chose as a background. I love to match my colouring to the patterned paper I use.
After fussy cutting the image, I used a black Memento marker and went over the edges of the cut image to make it look like it was perfectly cut (even if it wasn’t).
I used an MFT stitched rectangle die to cut a piece from the patterned paper and adhered it to a slate grey note card. Then I used the MFT Linked Chain Oval Frame die to cut a black and a pink piece and layered them on top of each other. I adhered it to the card base too and popped up the ghost with 3D foam tape.
Then I heat embossed with white detail embossing powder a sentiment from the SSS Handwritten Halloween stamp set on Olive cardstock and cut it with the coordinating die. I just love this sentiment set so much! I used liquid glue to adhere it too on the bottom of my card.
As embellishment I used some clear star sequins and a white gel pen to add details to the ghost. I also covered it all with Tonic Aqua shimmer pen and added glossy accents to the pink stripes on his hat.
I hope you like today’s inspiration and you will pop in tomorrow for more fun!
