Happy Tuesday friends! It’s Tuesday Tea with Twiddler’s Nook over on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers today and I had some spooky fun creating today’s card! I used some newly released Halloween goodies from Pretty Pink Posh with the never-failing, ever-amazing Trinity Stamps Coffee Mug Card die.
To start, I die cut the coffee mug card from black cardstock. Then I inked it up with the spooky sky layering stencil set and pigment inks. For the last layer I used ThermOWeb glitz glitter gel to have sparkly black bats! To decorate the mug a little more I die cut the boo portion from the center of the boo shaker die from silver cardstock and also 4 times from white cardstock. I trimmed the word out and glued them together for the layered effect. Next, I chose 3 of the supporting images from the Halloween Wreath stamp set and colored them with my copics. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and popped them up with foam squares on my mug.
At first I was going to make this a shaped card but I switched gears and ink blended a fun Halloween background instead. I used distress oxide inks in twisted citron, blueprint sketch and seedless preserves. I spritzed it with my distress sprayer and also flicked black acrylic paint on it. After the panel was dry I die cut it with the Trinity Stamps Modern Embossed Rectangle die.
I adhered the inked panel to an A2 size card base, glued my mug closed and to my card front and trimmed off anything hanging over the edge. For finishing touches I drew a web string from the end of “boo” to the top of my spider so it looks like it’s hanging down. Then I also added white gel pen accents to the images and black glaze pen to their eyes.
I know there are people clutching on to the last of summer but this girl is BEYOND READY for all thing FALL! These cards are just making my heart so happy to create! Where do you stand? Pumpkin spice or hand me another iced latte?
