Halloween Cards Day #6

Happy almost Halloween everyone!! Halloween is just around the corner so here is one last card to wrap up this series. Hope you’ve enjoyed and got some inspiration. So I’m rounding off this series with some more Lawn Fawny goodness. I’m sure by now you’ve figured out that I love Lawn Fawn stamps.😀😀

This one features the Lawn Fawn’s Happy Haunting and Pick of the Patch stampsets. I began by cutting a piece of Simon Says Stamp Black Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″and scored at 4 1/4″ to create a card base and a piece to 4 x 5-1/4″ for the top panel.

I stamped and heat embossed the house, tree, moon, bats from the Lawn Fawn Happy Haunting stampset with Versamark and Wow White Embossing Powder onto the black panel and colored the windows of the house with a yellow Prismacolor Pencil. I stamped several of the pumpkins from the Lawn Fawn Pick of the Patch and the small and medium ghosts from the Lawn Fawn Happy Haunting stampsets with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto some Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5″X11″. I colored the pumpkins with Copics in YR04, YR09, YG25, G94 and R81 (for cheeks) and the ghosts with C1, R20 and colorless I diecut them with their coordinating dies and then added some highlights with a Uni-ball Signo white Gel Pen.

I used some white acrylic paint to add some splatters to the black panel to give the sky some dimension. I diecut the Spooky Fence Border from Lawn Fawn from some black DCWV Glitzy Glitter Cardstock and the “grassy” area I used Stampin’ Up! Brights Designer Series Paper 12 x 12 (discontinued) and cut it down to 1-1/2 x 5-1/4”.

I adhered the green polka dot cardstock to the bottom portion of the card panel and then the spooky fence right above that. I adhered the ghost flat on to the card and some of the pumpkins are adhered flat and a couple I popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Then I stamped the sentiment from the Lawn Fawn Pick of the Patch stampset with Catherine Pooler Orange Twist Ink onto a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5″X11″ and cut it down to 3/8 x 4-3/4. I adhered it to a piece of Simon Says Stamp Black Cardstock and trimmed it down to 1 x 4-13/16”. I popped up the sentiment using some 3M Foam Tape. To complete the card front I added some sparkle to the pumpkins with a Spectrum Noir Shimmer Pen.

For the inside of the card (I can’t leave it blank, of course!), I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5″X11″ to 4 x 5-1/4″. I stamped the medium ghost from the Lawn Fawn Happy Haunting stampset in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and a sentiment from Lawn Fawn Pick of the Patch stampset with Catherine Pooler Orange Twist Ink to match the sentiment on the front of the card. And that completed this card.

This was a super fun and as always cute card with Lawn Fawn stamps and dies. All supplies are listed and linked below as well.

Halloween Cards Day #5: Emboss Resist Background

This card came together fairly quick with the use of a distress resist technique. I began by cutting a card base to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″and scored at 4 1/4″ from Simon Says Stamp Black Cardstock. Then I cut a panel of Canson XL Coldpress Watercolor Paper to 4 x 5-1/4″.

I stamped the Halloween word background from the Halloween Silhouettes Tim Holtz Cling Mount in Archival Jet Black Ink. I prepped the surface of the watercolor panel with the Ranger ANTI STATIC POUCH and heat embossed using the same background stamp, Versamark Ink and Clear Embossing Powder.

Next I took Distress Oxide Inks in Seedless Preserves, Wilted Violet, Twisted Citron, and Black Soot Distress Ink and applied it over the embossed background. I added some white acrylic paint splatters and set it aside to dry. Using Versamark Ink, I heat embossed the spiderweb from the Trick-or-Treat Tim Holtz Cling Mount and the skeleton from the Halloween Silhouettes Tim Holtz Cling Mount with WOW OPAQUE BRIGHT WHITE Embossing Powder SUPER FINE

I adhered that completed panel to the card base using liquid glue. I stamped the “31” from the Halloween Silhouettes Tim Holtz Cling Mount in Ranger Archival Ink Pad BRIGHT TANGELO and added it in the same spot it appears on the background stamp. I popped it up with some Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added some glossy accents over the numbers and some Nuvo drops in Ripened Pumpkin and Purple Rain onto the card to complete it.

On the inside of the card I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5″X11″ to 4 x 5-1/4″. I stamped the spiderweb from the Trick-or-Treat Tim Holtz Cling Mount stamp in Ranger Wendy Vecchi Watering Can Archival Ink and the sentiment from the Halloween Silhouettes Tim Holtz Cling Mount in Ranger Archival Ink Pad BRIGHT TANGELO. I paired this card with a black envelope and it is complete.
