Welcome friends! Today I’m over on the Pink & Main blog with some adorable Halloween inspiration featuring one of my favorite sets from last year. These ghosts are so much fun to color and create with!
I started by stamping the super cute trio of ghosts and colored them with my copic markers. I used the coordinating die to cut the image out and set it aside to create my sparkly background.
I started with an A2 piece of black cardstock and used the 1/4″ EZ Tear Tape to add strips to the center of it. I peeled the backing paper from two strips at a time and then sprinkled super fine glitter on them until all of them were covered. This is one of my favorite ways to use glitter on cards. Then I used the next-to-largest layered rectangle die to trim the panel down. I think the pressure from the die cutter really sets the glitter and I also like the finished look the die gives.
To assemble my card, I used foam tape to pop the glittered panel up on a white card base. Then added my ghosts with foam squares. I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment on black cardstock before die cutting it with a sentiment strip from Sunny Greetings and popping it up with foam strips. For a more finished look, I used the layered rectangle dies to cut a frame and added it with EZ Squeeze liquid glue.
For finishing touches, I added glossy accents to the ghost’s eyes on the ends and black stripes in the letters. Then I added stardust Stickles to their cheeks and the orange stripes. I think it ties in really well with the glittery background and just adds more fun.
