It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Hallowe'en card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps By The Moonlight - TT047 for the image and Block Happy Halloween - FF049 for the sentiment. These little friends are ready for some spooky fun on Hallowe'en.
To make my card this week, I began with a card base of Hammermill - Premium Colour 100 lb., cut and scored to be 5.5" x 4.25". I die cut the background from Stampin' UP! - Magic In This Night Designer Series Paper to be the same size as the base. Using a combination of Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Black Soot, Villainous Potion, Seedless Preserves and Fossilized Amber and finger daubers, I added some extra colour to the background. Martha Stewart - Hallowe'en Washi Tape was placed across the bottom. I cut Doodlebug Design Inc. - Hallowe'en Parade cardstock to the size of 1-1/8" x 4.25". I ran this through my Xyron Create a Sticker and adhered it to the base card above the washi tape.
I stamped the main image and sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock using my MISTI and Memento - Tuxedo Black ink. The main image was a little short for the full width of the card so I added some double-sided tape to a couple scraps of Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock and adhered them to both sides of the fence. The image and sentiment were then both coloured in. The image was fussy cut and U-Line double-sided tape was applied to it. I popped it up onto the card and then cut off the excess from the fence on both sides. I cut around the sentiment and then ran it through my Xyron Create a Sticker and applied it to a piece of Recollections - Black cardstock. Once again, I used my cutter to go around the sentiment, leaving a slight border. U-Line double-sided tape was applied to the back of the sentiment and it was popped up onto the striped paper background to complete the card.
