Miss Ink Stamps – Boo to You!

Welcome friends! Thanks for stopping by today to see my super adorable Miss Ink Stamps Boo Crew card. This is the first time I’ve done a masked/ink blended background like this and I’m so happy with how it turned out.

To make my card, I started by laying out my stamps on a card base to decide where I wanted everything and make sure it would all fit right. Then I stamped my Boo Crew images and colored them with copics. I used my scan-n-cut to cut them out and moved on to my background panel.

For that, I stamped the graveyard image and did second generation stamping on a full-stick post-it note and cut out the moon and headstone to mask off. Then took a long piece of post-it tape and tore it down the middle to mask off an uneven ground. I used Trinity Stamps blending buddy brushes and some dye inks to ink up my sky. I removed the masks and inked up the dirt next. Then I came back with copics and colored the images like the trees, headstone and pillars on the gate.

When the background was finished I popped my images up with foam squares and put them in place. Then I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment and cut it in to a banner. This was also popped up. I trimmed my panel to 5.5×4 and popped it up on a white card base.

For finishing touches on my card I added a couple strips of washi tape to the bottom and some glossy accents to the pumpkin eyes, treat bags and candy pieces. Last, I took a white gel pen and added some stars to my night sky.

This card was so much fun to create, words don’t really describe it. The excitement and satisfaction from taking off the masking paper and seeing how cool the inking looks and how it all comes together in the end is awesome! If you haven’t tried this style before, you really should.

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
