Let’s Make a Halloween Card

Sometimes I have an idea and just want to make a card. That’s what I’m doing today. There’s no special technique or anything like that, I just had an idea and made that idea into a card! And the best part, I’m using stamps that are ON SALE right now at Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps. You only have a few more days to take advantage of this sale, so grab some amazing Halloween themed stamps while there’s still time! But be sure to watch the video tutorial below before you go shopping!!

Some supplies used the video above were sent to me free of charge for design purposes. I only ever design for companies I can stand behind 100%. To see who I currently and have previously designed for head HERE.

This is one of those cards that has quite a few pieces that need to be done before you can assemble them all into the final card. Keep reading below for a breakdown of those steps!

To start off I needed to create my background. My background is an A2 sized white cardstock panel with ink blending. I used Catherine Pooler inks in Lime Ricky, Icing on the Cake & Over Coffee to ink blend a very quick scene. To make it a bit more interesting, I ripped a piece of painter’s tape to create a jagged masked line!

On that background I also stamped a spider web using Midnight ink from Catherine Pooler and a web stamp from Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps. I also added a black splatter to just the top of the background with black acrylic paint that I watered down with a bit of water. Be sure to watch the video above for more details on that! Then, I set the panel aside to dry while I worked on a few more pieces of this card.

While the panel was drying, I went ahead with stamping and color quite a few stamps from Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps. These were going to make up the rest of the scene on the card. I stamped, colored and fussy cut a cat, broom, spider, and a few potion bottles.

One last piece was needed before I could put this card together, the sentiment. I used a new sentiment that hasn’t been released yet! Be sure to come back on 10/3 to check out the entire new release!!

Be sure to check out the video above to see how I put all of the pieces together to create the final card!
