Card of the Week-- Spooky Halloween Greetings

Wednesday, October 31, 2012

Happy Halloween! I hope your day is filled with lots of tricks & treats. Today’s ‘Card of the Week’ is inspired by Halloween. I had a lot of fun making this card and I thought I’d take a few snap shots of how I made it and the tools I used to make it as well. I used some of the new stamps I bought at the Ontario, CA, Expo this month. I’m so glad I purchased this Halloween stamp set because it’s so cute—and I know I’ll use it year after year. I also used another set I purchase from the expo—except it’s not a Halloween set it’s just your standard ‘cute’ kind of set. I really love that one too; namely, because it has this super adorable doily banner stamp

I used a black cardstock for the A2 size card base, some newspaper patterned paper, and a strip of yellow and black patterned paper as well. I also used my doily banner stamp on top and accented the card with these elegant—yet spooky—chandelier stamps.  
I love having a reason to use my distressing tools so I used my vintage photo distress ink (you can find these online, at Joanns, or Michaels). I really do adore how this vintage style technique looks. 
Here I used black embossing powder and my heat tool to get this clean image, then I cut it out. 
Next, I adhered the yellow and black strip, and added some more sentiments. 
Next I used my adhesive foam to create the 3D effect. You can find these foam adhesives at Michaels, online, or Joanns. 


There you have it, my Halloween card from start to finish. I hope you have great Halloween and if you're going out--stay safe!!!
