Spooky Card Series w/ Hello Bluebird - Spooky Shelves

mardi 29 septembre 2020

Hey everyone,

Halloween is next month so there is still plenty of time to create spooky cute cards! This one features several stamp and die sets, including Frightful Little Bits from the last release.

Like always I started by stamping and cutting the images, and I colored them using my alcohol markers.

When the coloring was done, I created the shelf background. I cut my frame out of white woodgrain cardstock and colored it using vintage photo distress ink. Next I separated the frame and squares and applied ground espresso on the edges to bring more depth to the elements. And I added texture to those pieces by splattering ground espresso distress ink mixed with water.

Next I cut a slimline panel measuring 8,5 x 3,5 inches and used a brick stencil along with hickory smoke distress ink to create a wall background. And to make this panel less flat, I added texture by splattering black soot distress ink mixed with water.

I temporarily taped the wooden frame to the brick panel and attached the square panels using liquide glue. Next I cut three more frames out of brown cardstock, I layered those pieces on top of each other, stuck my wooden frame on top and finally attached the whole element on the brick panel.

Next I attached the images on my panel using foam squares, glue dots and liquid glue. I added white hightlights on the images using my white gel pen, and white heat embossed my sentiment ‘Happy Haunting’ on a thin grey banner that I attached in the middle of my panel usinf foam squares. And finally I added white blizzard nuvo drops on the lights to make them shine.

  1. Beautiful funny Halloween card, unfortunately here in UK we don’t celebrate Halloween like they do in USA, so I wouldn’t make any Halloween cards, but I’d certainly make a card very similar too this but maybe add some balloons n party hats for an amazing cute Birthday card. As always you never fail to amaze me. Thanks for all your hard work, it’s very much appreciated. Look forward too your next Blogg xx
