It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Hallowe’en card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Boo Pals – SS007 for the image and Boo-tiful Day – E233 for the sentiment. Hallowe’en is now only a few months away! Wow! Where has this year gone? Time seems to be flying by so fast!
To make my card this week, I began with a card base of Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock, cut and scored to be 5.5″ x 4.25″. I cut the background paper from Recollections – Black cardstock to be the same size as the base card and attached it using double-sided tape. Using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers and my Anna Griffin Empress Mini Machine, I die cut Doodlebug – Pumpkin Party cardstock. I just love these little ghosts. With a finger dauber and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Villainous Potion, I inked around all of the edges of the die cut. U-Line double-side tape was applied to the back of this piece and I popped it up onto the base card. Using the same cutting machine, I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock using Nestabilities Dies – Deckled Rectangles – Large.
I stamped the main image onto the Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card die cut using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and coloured it in. I created my own moon shape using a 2″ circle mask that I had created earlier with a Fiskars hand punch. The eyes and nose for the cat and ghost were added in using a Sakura Glaze – Black pen. I ran the coloured image through my Xyron Creative Station and attached it to Recollections – Black cardstock. I didn’t have a larger die of the same shape, so I put the piece that I had adhered together into my Brother Scan ‘N Cut and created a .08″ border around it. This created the small black border to make the image pop. The sentiment was stamped onto a scrap piece of Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and then it was die cut using my cutting machine and Poppystamps – Christmas Quotes. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Wilted Violet and a finger dauber were used to go around the die cut.
The card was now ready to assemble. I added U-Line double-sided tape to the back of the frame and sentiment and popped them both up onto the card to finish it off.
