For my project today, I am showcasing the adorable Roberto Rascal’s Ghosts Stamp Set and coordinating dies.

Here’s how I made the card:

  • stamp the images on some X-press It card stock and color the images in with alcohol markers
  • use coordinating dies to cut them out.
  • ink-blend an A2-size panel of Strathmore Bristol smooth white card stock with distress oxide inks and clouds stencil.
  • adhere this panel on some A2-size top folding notecard.
  • die-cut the background panel using a halloween die from your collection and adhere on the ink-blended panel with liquid adhesive and foam adhesive for added dimension.
  • use a die from your stash to add the tombstone and bats for a spooky effect. I ink-blended the tombstone with some white pigment ink for added texture.
  • stamp the sentiment on the card with some black ink.
  • finish the card design by using some white gel pen to draw some dots to the sky for added interest.
