It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Hallowe’en card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Witchy & Friends – TT019 for the image and Take Flight – HH008 for the sentiment. This little witch and her crew don’t look like they could frighten anyone, but I’m sure they will have lots of fun trying! LOL!
To make my card this week, I began with a card base of Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock, cut and scored to be 4.25″ x 5.5″. I cut the background to be the same size using Doodlebug Design Inc. – Ghost Town patterned paper and adhered it to the base card using double-sided tape. Doodlebug Design Inc. – Hallowe’en Parade patterned paper was cut to the size of 1-7/8″ x 5.5″ and adhered directly to the base background using double-sided tape.
I stamped the sentiment and image using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock. Using my Anna Griffin Empress Mini die-cutting Machine and Hero Arts – Infinity Die Ovals, the image was die cut. A cutter was used to cut around the sentiment. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Villainous Potion and a finger dauber were used to ink around the base card and sentiment. The image was coloured in and then I used a Sakura Glaze – Black pen for the eyes and noses on the characters. Then, I applied a small dot of Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen to the eyes and also to create stars in the night sky. U-Line double-sided tape was added to the back of the coloured image and sentiment and then they were both popped up onto the card. To finish it off, I added some YNS Gumdrops – Pretty Peacock Matte.
