So, I know Halloween is tomorrow, but I had a few more not-so-spooky cards that I wanted to share to help get us in the mood. (Because I know the stores are already switching over to Christmas mode, so we have to help each other keep the Halloween fun going until tomorrow night, right? )
This was the card I created for my Fun n’ Crafty stampers Stamp & Share event I ran earlier this fall. The Stamp & Share is our event we hold a few times a year to come together and share ideas, new stamping techniques, business tips, and of course, stamp together! So much fun! Anyway, I wanted to use the Fall Fest stamp set and framelits for our make & takes and so I knew I wanted to do something with that adorable ghost.
Tips for making this card:
- Turns out, he looks AWESOME when you stamp the ghost with versamark onto Basic Black cardstock and then heat emboss with white embossing powder! Then just die cut out your ghost and he is perfect!
- Added some of the same ghost stamped in Smoky Slate onto the Lost Lagoon cardstock for his fellow ghost buddies.
- Use the Holiday Invitation stamp set for those cute bats and the Be Scary sentiment for a finishing touch
- Save with bundles! This card uses a lot of the new 2014 in Color cardstock – get a little bit of all the colors without breaking the bank in the Family Pack of cardstock – or get the In Color ink pads and get the cardstock free with the In Color bundle! Plus save 15% on the Fall Fest stamp set and framelits when you buy them at the same time in their bundle too!
Now, I thought I’d also share a card that was my first attempt at this general card idea. I decided it didn’t quite work the way I wanted so I came up with the version above. But I thought I’d share it in case it gives you some other inspiration.
The main difference is that I stamped the ghost onto the Lost Lagoon cardstock and then cut him out and glued the die cut onto the other part of the Lost Lagoon cardstock. Then in the hole that was cut out, I stamped the ghost directly onto the cardbase and glued the Lost Lagoon cardstock over the top. Clear as mud?
Hopefully that picture helps. So, enjoy the next couple days of haunting and if you have any questions about the details of being a demonstrator or joining my team, I’d love to chat with you! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll chat!
