Today’s reveal will get you in the mood for Halloween and we are showcasing a lot of products –> the Witchy Newton stamp set and coordinating dies, Happy Howl-oween stamp set and coordinating dies and the Ghosts stencil.
I ink-blended my background with some distress oxide inks and die-cut the other elements that I needed to create my scene. I stamped and colored my images with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and used the dies to die-cut the images. I foam-mounted the image on my card and finished my design by stamping my sentiment with Versamark ink and heat-set this with my heating tool. Here’s a closer look:
For my second card, I masked my Bristol smooth white card stock with masking paper and ink-blended this piece with some distress oxide inks. I adhered this piece on some A2 size black card base.
I used the Picket Fence die for the picket fence and the Land Border die set for the grass with some black card stock. I assembled the card by adhering all of the pieces that I needed for my Halloween scene.
I added the ghosts using the Ghosts stencil on my card by slightly tracing the images with my Versamark pen. I sprinkled some white embossing powder and heat-set this with my heating tool. I did the same thing for my sentiment. I finished the design by stamping the bats. Here’s a closer look:
Are you now in the mood for Halloween? I love all of the stamps, dies and stencil that we revealed this week! Jennifer is truly an AMAZING artist!
