Wicked Hipsters | Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Halloween

Boo friends! I'm back today to share a couple of cards I created for the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Halloween 2021 release. These cards use one my new faves...Wicked Hipster and I've combined it with the Bold Frights and Rest In Peace Stamp Sets. I love that this set can be used for so much more than just Halloween and I promise to share some more inspiration with it soon that shows you the range of this wicked fun set!


The background for each of these slimline cards was created using gel plates, Distress Oxide Inks and stencils. For the details on how this technique works, you can check out my How To Create Backgrounds with Gel Plates, Distress Oxide Inks & Stencils.

The stencils I used on the Boo card include the Trellis, Dot Fade, Falling Stars Layering Stencils. I really recommend just taking your time to play with colors and stencils and create a bunch of backgrounds all at once.


When I sit down to create with my gel plate, I usually make 6-8 backgrounds at a time...or more! I love the creative playtime and when I'm finished I have a pile of backgrounds to choose from when I'm ready to create a card. 


Once I was ready to start creating my cards, I selected two backgrounds that I thought looked nice together because I knew that I wanted the cards to coordinate.

Next, I then stamped the Wicked Hipsters onto Distress Watercolor with Black Soot Archival Ink and then colored them using a water brush and Distress Ink. I used Wilted Violet, Twisted Citron and then different shades of browns for the hair. I added a bit of shadow using Hickory Smoke Distress Ink. Once the ink was dry, I fussy cut each image and adhered them to the card front using double sided foam adhesive.


On the Trick or Treat card is used the Trellis, Shatter, Dot Fade and Crate Stencils. For both cards I used the following Distress Oxide Inks: Wilted Violet, Twisted Citron, Fossilized Amber and Black Soot.


The sentiments for both cards are from the Bold Frights Stamp Set. I used Black Soot Archival Ink to stamp directly onto the background paper.
