Happy Sunday folks…today I’m sharing another Halloween card and I do have some video for you as well. This card was created using the Witch Way to the Candy stamp and die set from MFT Stamps. There are so many fun critters and characters in this set that the possibilities are abundant. Whether you want to stay clean and simple or create a spooky scene, this stamp set is versatile and so fun.
I began by stamping out all the images from the stamp set and colored them with copic alcohol markers. At this point, I didn’t really know what my card was going to look like but I didn’t want that to hold me up so I just started coloring. After I die cut all the colored images, I started to put things together on a white card base. I played for a while and finally decided on the scene we have now. The rectangle framed die I used is also from MFTStamps. I use this one a LOT…I love the finished “framed” look it gives to my cards.
Once I had the design and layout figured out, I created the background using Tim Holtz distress Oxide Inks in five colors: Twisted Citron, Lucky Clover, Shaded Lilac, Blue Print Sketch and Black Soot. I splattered some water and some watered down black paint to give it a starry night feel.
I used my favorite all time glue tube from Lawn Fawn and glued down all the parts and pieces. The frame die is cut twice – once in black card stock and a second time using black craft foam. This gives it great dimension and so easy using the die – everything lines up perfectly when you stack them and glue them together.
I finished off the card with the Halloween Greetings sentiment that was stamped and embossed with white embossing powder. Because I had two leftover pieces that I didn’t use on the front, I thought it would be cute to place them on the inside of the card to tie it all together.
I think I have a few more Halloween cards in me so I will have more to share next week. If you’d like to peek at the card I made yesterday, click here. Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to subscribe to my blog for updates.
