Halloween Card Share – Stamp Anniething & Polkadoodles

Halloween Card Share

Hello! Today on my blog I am sharing three Halloween cards that I made.

To see the YouTube video, click the video below or read below for a detailed description of each card.

Stamp Anniething Halloween Card using Viva la Vida StampStamp Anniething Halloween4Stamp Anniething Slimline

For two of the cards, I used the Stamp Anniething Sofia – Viva la Vida stamp. I stamped the image onto Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Card Stock and colored with alcohol markers and then fussy cut the image. The card base is a back slimline card (4 x 9 inches).  I cut a piece of Bristol Smooth paper slightly smaller than the card base to do the ink blending. The distress ink colors I used for the blended background are Black Soot, Chipped Sapphire, Festive Berries, Carved Pumpkin, and Scattered Straw. After ink blending the background, I used a paintbrush to flick some water onto the background and then padded the paper with a power towel to dry up the water. This added a speckled look to the background. I stamped the sentiment “Have a Very Frightful & Delightful Halloween” using Versafine Onyx Black Ink onto the blended background and then covered it with black embossing powder.  I used a heat gun to emboss the background. I added the images as shown. The fence die cuts are from the Doodlebug Pumpkin Party Odds and Ends pack and were adhered using Tombow Liquid Glue.

Stamp Anniething Halloween Card using Viva la Vida Stamp

For the next card, I used a piece of black card stock to make the A2 size card base (4.25″ x 5.5″).  The paper is from the Recollections Boo Paper Pad. I cut down the newspaper pattered paper slightly smaller than the A2 size card base and distressed the edges. I also applied Black Soot distress ink to the edges. The scalloped frame is a Lawn Fawn die – Scalloped Rectangle Frames. I used this die to die cut the spiderweb paper on the inside of the frame as well as the black card stock (scallops on the outside of the frame). I adhered the scallops to the A2 card base and then added the spider web paper to the middle. I used foam adhesive to adhere the stamped image. I added two spiderweb stickers to the front of the card.

For the inside, I cut a piece of gray card stock just slightly smaller than the A2 size, distressed the edges, and added Black Soot ink to the edges. I stamped the sentiments as shown with black and purple ink. The sentiments are from Queen and Company’s Hocus Pocus Shaker Kit.

Polkadoodles Halloween Card using Winnie Broomstick and Winnie Magic Stamps

Polkadoodles Halloween3Polkadoodles Halloween4

For the third card, I used the Polkadoodles Winnie Magic and Winnie Broomstick stamps which I stamped onto the Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth card stock and colored with alcohol markers. I then fussy cut the images and set them aside.

I used another slimline card base and the Bristol Smooth paper to do the ink blending. The colors I used for the ink blended background are Black Soot, Wilted Violet, and Carved Pumpkin. After ink blending the background, I used a paintbrush to flick some water onto the background and then padded the paper with a power towel to dry up the water. This added a speckled look to the background.

The witch pot is a shaker piece from Queen and Company’s Fright Fest shaker kit. It is actually the pumpkin basket shaker piece, but for this card I am using it as a witch pot. I cut two small pieces for the legs of the pot with black card stock and adhered them as shown. The shaker bits are also from Queen and Company and linked below. I used liquid glue to adhere some the shaker pieces to the front of the card.

I stamped the sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black Ink onto the blended background and then covered it with black embossing powder.  I used a heat gun to emboss the background. I added the images as shown.

Ballgown Avery - Paper Nest Dolls
birthday, Birthday Cards, Echo Park Paper Co, Paper Nest Dolls, Queen & Co, Stamps of Life, Tim Holtz

Paper Nest Dolls – Ballgown Avery Card

Hello!

Here’s another card using a beautiful stamp from the Paper Nest Dolls. This one is called “Ballgown Avery.” My son asked me to make him a card for his friend’s Quinceañera and I immediately knew this stamp would be perfect since Avery is dressed in a ballgown. I tried to replicate my son’s friend as best as I could, coloring her dress red and hair brown.  After all, red was the color of her actual dress.

Cupcake Avery – Elegant Card

Cupcake Avery 2019-04

Hello!

Here is a another birthday card that I made using a stamp from The Paper Nest Dolls. This stamp is called Cupcake Avery. I also incorporated some of Anna Griffin’s elegant dies and papers and Queen and Company’s flower embellishments.

The card base is from Anna Griffin’s 6 x 6 Perfect Pattern Card Set. The color matches perfectly with the green copic markers that I used to color her dress.

The large square die cut is from Anna Griffin’s All Square Cut and Emboss Dies. First, I die cut shadow layer in the purple glitter card stock.  I applied double sided adhesive to the top solid purple layer before running it through the die cut machine. This made it easier to adhere to the glitter paper.  The green lace die cuts are from the Anna Griffin Lace Edge Die Set and I followed the same procedure as previously stated.

Using hot glue, I adhered the flower embellishments to the front of the card.
