Hi there! I’m back today with some spooky fun inspiration using some more amazing Halloween goodies from Miss Ink Stamps. I didn’t get a chance to use this awesome Halloween Mandala stencil last year and forgot about it until this week, so I immediately pulled it out to play.
I started with an orange panel of cardstock and used pixie spray on my stencil to adhere the two together temporarily. Then I spread wild lilac glitz glitter gel through the stencil. After removing the stencil, I set the panel aside to dry and cleaned up immediately.
While digging through my Halloween stamp sets, I thought it would be so fun to pair the critters in Welcome Home with sentiments in Halloween Sentiments over this awesome stenciling. So I started stamping and coloring everything with my copics. I used the scan-n-cut to cut everything out and added foam squares to the back.
I didn’t want the sentiment to be a big obtrusive block on the bottom of the card so I stamped SPOOKY and heat embossed it on vellum, then trimmed it into a strip. These letters are so chunky, I was able to hide foam strips behind them to pop the sentiment up a bit. Next, I chose a second sentiment to trim into as trip and place on top of that.
When the glitz gel was dry, I added foam tape to the back and popped it up on an A2 black cardstock panel. Then removed the foam back papers and added the critters and sentiments to that. Finally, I used liquid glue to adhere the whole thing to a white card base.
For finishing touches, I added glossy accents to the hedgehog’s hat band and pumpkin. Then stardust Stickles to the stars on the hat and the mouse’s candy costume. Last of all, I added black glaze pen to all of their eyes, let it dry and came in with a white gel pen highlight.
Isn’t this so much fun!?! I am still loving all things Halloween and fall right now. It feels like I’ll be in this mood well through Christmas at this point. Lol!
