Creepy & Kooky Halloween Card with Kat Scrappiness

Hello KS fans! I’m sharing this super simple Halloween card today showcasing the Creepy and Kooky Halloween Paper Pad, along with the Happy Halloween Word Die with Shadow, Creepy Crawly Dies (spider), Peacock Backdrop Die, Dress-Up Quokka Stamp Set, Quokka Halloween Costume Add On Stamp and Mint Green AB Solid Round Confetti Sequins.

Sometimes, you just don’t have the time or energy to die-cut a lot of pieces to create a scene for your card. I am showing you a simple way to create a cute Halloween card without spending too much time, and use up those cute pattern paper without overwhelming the design.

Here’s how I made this project:

  • Stamp the image from the Quokka Halloween Costume Add On Stamp on Neenah solar white card stock. Stamp the image again on some masking paper and use precision snips to fussy-cut the masking image.
  • Stamp the Dress-Up Quokka Stamp Set onto the masked image. Remove the mask and color the images with alcohol markers.
  • Use Brother Scan N Cut machine to die-cut the image or precision snips if you don’t have the machine.
  • Die-cut the background panel using the Peacock Backdrop Die and adhere on some A2-size top-folding notecard.
  • Die-cut some black circle using the Never-Ending Circle Dies and cut some black strip as well measuring 2 1/4 by 4 1/4. Adhere both pieces on the card.

Here’s another look:

Haunted Mansion Pockets Pals by LDRS Creative

Hello!  I have a SPOOKY card for you guys today, featuring the Haunted Mansion Pocket Pals stamp set from the LDRS Creative new Fall/Halloween Collection.

I started by stamping the Haunted Mansion image on some Neenah Solar White card stock with Raven Hybrid ink [this ink is perfect for using with either watercolor or alcohol markers].  I colored the images in with alcohol markers.  My color palette was inspired by the packaging itself.  I definitely LOVE that LDRS Creative gives you ideas on how to color the stamps.  I wish more companies will do this with their packaging.

Next, I carefully ink-blended the background using Dark Wash Jeans Hybrid ink and some blending brush to create the night sky.  

To create a spooky effect, I stamped the little “ghosty” images and the bats on the window and background with Raven Hybrid ink.  I also die-cut the grass panel twice on some black card stock using the In the Grass Die Set.  I adhered these on the card with liquid glue.

Now that my scene is almost finished, I decided to add the moon that I die-cut using the By the Light of the Moon Die Set.  I also stamped the sentiment on some black card stock with LDRS Watermark ink.  I sprinkled some White Embossing Powder and used heating tool to heat-set the sentiment.  I fussy-cut the sentiment and adhered on the card.

Lastly, I used some white gel pen to add some dots and stars for added texture and interest.  Here’s another look at the finished card:
