Hi friends. I’m back after some unplanned time off!It’s great to be creating again. I’m cutting it close but let’s start with a cute Halloween card. This stampset from Pretty Pink Posh, Halloween Wreath is so cute! I love all the fun images. They are easy to color with markers, pencils etc or leave them uncolored. You can also make a wreath from the singular images instead of using the wreath image.
I started by cutting a piece of Simon Says Stamp 100lb Black 8-1/2 x 11″ Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to make the card base and a second piece cut to 4 x 5-1/4″ which I embossed with an embossing folders from the Queen & Co’s Embossing Folder Bundle. I added a strip of pattern paper from the Honey Bee Stamps Halloween Harvest 6×6 Paper Pad measuring 3/4 x 5-1/4″ and another measuring 1-1/4 x 5-1/4″.
I stamped the wreath and all the images as well as a sentiment in the center from the Pretty Pink Posh Halloween Wreath Stampset with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with WOW Embossing Powder in Super Fine Opaque Bright White. I colored them with Prismacolor Pencils and diecut the images with the coordinating dies. Tip: Make sure to use a good amount of anti-static powder when using embossing powder on dark cardstock or it will stick where you don’t want. I used 3M Foam Tape to pop up the wreath.
I finished it off by adding some sequins from the Honey Bee Stamps Halloween Harvest Sequin Mix.
On the inside of the card, I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 4 x 5-1/4″ and the same purple paper I used on the front of the card from Honey Bee Stamps Halloween Harvest 6×6 Paper Pad to 1 x 5-1/4″ and stamped a sentiment from the Pretty Pink Posh Halloween Wreath Stampset with Catherine Pooler Designs Mandarin Spice Ink. I also added some extra images I had stamped.
