Things are cooling down here in the north and fall is upon us. I love the crisp cool air and prefect sweatshirt weather. The colors of nature are so beautiful in the fall. One of my favorite things in the fall is Halloween! I love Halloween! I love decorating for it and creating for it.
The card I have to share with you today is a cute Halloween card. I had a lot of fun creating this card and I used several of the stamps from the Witch Way to the Treats stamp set from JustRite Stampers. This stamp set includes 10 Borders & Centers and it fits the 1-3/16'' Wood Stamper.Here is a close up of the stamps I used from this set. Here is a picture of the finished card.I started out with the black paper and making the tree for the background. *See note at bottom of this post. Then I stamped the pumpkin center and border from the Witch Way to the Treats stamp set onto white cardstock and colored with Copic markers. After I had the coloring done I used the Standard Circles Lg S4-114 and Petite Scalloped Circles Lg S4-115 die templates from Spellbinders to make the circle diecuts. I also used Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist on the white cardstock and Haunted Shadow Glimmer Mist on the purple cardstock. Next I stamped the creepy cauldron image from the Witch Way to the Treats set with black ink onto green cardstock and cut the image out. I added some green glitter to the bubbles and put foam dots behind it.Then I stamped the images of the ghosts from the Witch Way to the Treats set with black ink onto white cardstock and cut out the images and added foam dots so the ghosts would look like they were flying in the sky. I also added some tiny rhinestones for spooky eyes in the tree. *wink* You can't really see it in the picture but I misted the ghosts with Marshmallow Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels.Now a spooky Halloween card wouldn't be complete without a witch flying by the moon so I stamped the image of the witch from the Witch Way to the Treats set with black ink onto yellow cardstock and cut the image out. I added Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels and foam dots. The cobwebs in the corners are from the Halloween Fun stamp set from Crafty Secrets.
For the border I used the Harvest Border Petites S4-226 die template from Spellbinders with some NEW paper from 3M, Post-it Craft Paper-Orange. *See note at the bottom of this post. I also used the Copic airbrush system with a black marker to airbrush through the die template. Here is another picture of the finished card, you can see a little more of the shimmer from the Glimmer Mist.
