Boo Halloween Card | Halloween Trio Stamp Set

Today we have not one, but three, Halloween themed stamp sets to share with you today! First up, I'm sharing a Halloween scene I created using the Halloween Trio Stamp Set. I began by stamping and coloring the image and then die cutting it with the coordinating die set.
To create the background, I stenciled a piece of white cardstock with the flying bats stencil and Distress Oxide Ink in Black Soot. To give the background more color, I ink blended the panel with Distress Oxide Ink in Blueprint Sketch, Black Soot and Wilted Violet. I tapped off a lot of the excess ink to give just a light coverage of color. I then placed the stencil back on top and re-inked the bats to make them stand out again.

For the clouds, I used the cloud die from the Sky Borders Die Set. I used Distress Oxide Ink in Blueprint Sketch, Black Soot and Wilted Violet again but applied the ink a bit darker for more color.
The grass is die cut from the grass die that's part of the Land Borders Die Set and it's ink blended with Distress Oxide in Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron.

After all the pieces were created, I layered them onto the stenciled background panel and trimmed off any excess paper. I then used a circle die to create a full moon and inked it up with Distress Oxide in Antique Linen. For the final touch, I die cut a couple bats from black cardstock using the coordinating die for the Halloween Trio.

Halloween Card | Boo Hoo Stamp Set

For my second card, I have a rather "clean and simple for me" card using the Boo Hoo Stamp Set. To create the background, I stamped the images onto a piece of 4.25 x 5.5 inch black cardstock using white pigment ink and let it dry. I then took the large postage edge die from the Framework Die Set and die cut the background panel.

While I was stamping the background piece, I also stamped some extra images onto black cardstock and let them dry as well. Once they were dry I die cut them using the coordinating dies. Using the smaller postage edge dies from the Framework Die Set I cut a piece of green and purple cardstock. I adhered the die cut images to the frames and then added them to the card front.

Halloween Card | Candy Corn Stamp Set

For the third and final card today, I used the Candy Corn Stamp Set. To create the background, I randomly stamped the images with embossing ink onto a piece of watercolor paper and heat embossed them with white embossing powder. I then watercolored the images using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and blended out the colors with a water brush.

The yellow polka banner was created using the large flag die from the Frames & Flags Die Set. I finished off the card by stamping the sentiment in orange ink. I then stamped over it again with embossing ink using my MISTI to help and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.
