Halloween shaker card

Hello. Today I am sharing a card for Time For Tea Designs, using the new release Halloween dies.

To start the card I die cut an A6 card panel and blended Distress Oxide inks in wilted violet, picked raspberry and carved pumpkin over this. I added splatters of metallic watercolour for some texture and interest. I placed the ghost shaped dies on the panel and run through my die cutting machine to leave four ghost shaped holes.

I did consider putting vellum ghosts over the windows but decided against that in the end

Next I die cut some grass from black card stock along with the word Halloween and adhered them to the panel. I stamped the word happy and some black stars.

I adhered a piece of acetate to the back of the ghosts and added foam tape to the back of the panel and around the ghosts to leave pockets of space for the sequins.

I placed white sequins into the ghost windows then adhered a card base to the panel. I added eyes and a mouth to each ghost to complete the card.

Thanks for dropping by and Happy Halloween!

Halloween card

Hello. I hope you are well.

Today I am sharing a Halloween themed card using a stamp called Count Dave from Downland Crafts

I started the card by stamping the image using Memento tuxedo black ink on to Xpress it blending card. I used my copics to colour the image and decided on a purple and black theme based on my favourite colour and the occasion! Once coloured I cut him out using my Scan N Cut machine.

I decided to do a sky background using the My Favorite Things cloud stencil. I used Distress Oxide inks black soot and stormy sky to blend. I wanted to make sure the background wasn’t too dark to distract from the image which would be the focal point. I then used Mowed lawn with a bit of stormy sky to ink the ground.

I cut a piece of Lawn Fawn vellum and selected a sentiment from the My Favourite Things frightfully sweet set. I stamped the sentiment on to the vellum using Emboss clear stamp pad and sprinkled it with Papermania black embossing powder before hitting it with my heat tool.
