Hey everyone! I am SO EXCITED to be over on the Pretty Pink Posh blog today celebrating Halloween Theme Week with them. There’s a sale and tons of inspiration all week for all things Halloween. Today I have a super cool shaker card to share with you.
I started my card by creating the shaker cauldron. I ink blended distress oxide in ripe persimmon and carved pumpkin on a scrap of white cardstock and set it aside. Then I die cut 8 cauldrons from black cardstock and adhered them to the ink blended scrap. I trimmed the panel down, added my shaker bits, an acetate panel and then one more black cauldron on top and set it aside to dry with acrylic blocks on top of it.
Next, I ink blended my background with more distress oxide ink. Mowed lawn to twisted citron on the bottom, fading into nothing. Then seedless preserves to tattered rose, fading into the same nothing on the top. Then I layered the bat stencil from the Spooky Sky stencil set and blended black ink through that.
Then I stamped and heat embossed the outline fence image from Halloween Borders and a sentiment from Ghost Friends and used the coordinating dies to cut both of them out. I stamped two ghosts from Ghost Friends and colored them with my copic markers before die cutting them as well. I wanted a little something else so I went digging and found this sweet witchy kitty from Halloween Pals. I stamped and colored her with copics too and then cut her out with the coordinating dies.
To assemble my card, I added the background panel to a card base and the fence directly to that. Next, I glued down the cauldron shaker and added foam squares to my images and sentiment. I removed the release paper and adhered those down before moving on to finishing touches.
For that I just added black glaze pen to the eyes that are “open” and glossy accents to the band on the witch hat. Last, I added swooshes of Wink of Stella glitter brush pen on the details of both ghosts. Just a little shimmer in the light but it’s fun.
