Halloween 2023 | Trick or Treat

The Unity Stamp Company released this adorable “Ghostly Bat Ensemble” stamp set that I had the perfect patterned paper to serve as a background. Today is the first day of Fall 2023 and I was inspired to start making for the spooky season.

For starters, I grabbed a gorgeous piece of patterned paper from the Whimsy Stamps “BOOkeh” designer paper pack… sort of a candy corn color theme happening – too cute – and cut it to be 4” x 5-1/4” using the Trinity Stamps “Modern Embossed Rectangle Stack” dies. I also used this die set to cut an A2 sized piece of black cardstock to frame my decorative panel on the card base.

Next, I stamped the ghost stamp from the Unity Stamp Company “Ghostly Bat Ensemble” onto a piece of white cardstock using VersaMark watermark ink and added a layer of Brutus Monroe Raven Sparkle Embossing Powder and melted the embossing powder with the heat gun. I used Prima Marketing “Shimmering Lights” watercolor paints (Chandelier and Antique) to paint the ghost image to give it a pearlescent finish and used the Brother Scan N Cut to cut out the image for me.

I stamped the “Trick or Treat” image from the same stamp set onto the upper right of my BOOkeh card panel using StazOn Jet Black ink since the patterned paper has a bit of a shiny finish and I wanted to ensure the ink wasn’t going to smear. I added Simon Says Stamp 3D Foam Squares to the back side of my ghost and adhered it to the card front. I found some This Calls for Confetti “The Autumn Leaves” sequins in my embellishment stash and glued a few of those cascading across the panel.

Lastly, I adhered the decorated panel to the A2 black cardstock panel using Simon Says Stamp Big Momma Foam Tape and used Ranger/Tim Holtz Distress Collage Medium to glue the card front to the card base… DONE! This was a quick and easy card but was so much fun to make. Until next time… Happy Making!
