Today I am sharing a Frightfully Cute Halloween Card that my friend and fellow stamping buddy Rose Kerry made. She is an incredible card artist!! All of Rose’s projects are stunning! This card uses the Stampin’ Up! Frightfully Cute Stamp Bundle (156493) with the Cute Halloween Designer paper (156479)
I absolutely love the Background that Rose made for this card. She used a 2 1/4″ x 3 1/2″ piece of Basic White CS which she colored with a few colors to make the beautiful background! This piece of Basic White CS is cut using a Stitched Rectangular die.
To make this background Rose used 4 colors of ink and blended them together to make this gorgeous Halloween sky; Pear Pizazz, Gorgeous Grape, Pumpkin pie & Daffodil Delight.
Blending a background like this gorgeous one takes some practice! Try it out on scrap paper first!! Use blending brushes to color the background of this piece.
How to Blend a Background
- Start in the top right corner with Daffodil delight. When blending a background – start with the lightest color first. Then blend in the next darkest color.
2. Next start from the middle of the right side with pumpkin pie ink and brush up towards the top left corner. Use a light touch to blend the pumpkin pie ink into the daffodil. Be careful to not blend too much or you will lose the yellow shade.
3. Brush a line of Pear Pizazz ink along the bottom of the piece for the grass. Then start at the top of the green line with gorgeous grape ink and blend into the pumpkin pie. I suggest starting on a piece of scrap paper. Blending can take a little practice!
Stamp the Witch in the center of the card using Tuxedo Black Momento Ink. Stamp the bat in the top left corner. Attach this background piece to the piece of Basic Black Cardstock cut to 2 3/8″ x 3 5/8″.
Next Stamp the Moon on a scrap of Whisper White with versamark ink. Cover with Black Embossing powder and heat to make the Moon. Cut out the Moon.
Use a piece of Basic Black CS and cut out the fence image. Stamp “Happy Halloween” with Black ink on a scrap of white and cut out with the label die in the set. Set these pieces aside.
Time to Make the Card
Cut a piece of Pumpkin Pie CS to 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″. Score at 4 1/4″ and fold to make the card base. Cut a piece of Gorgeous Grape CS to 4″ x 5 1/4″. Attach to the card base. Cut a piece of polka dot Designer paper to a 3 1/2″ square. Cut another piece of the haunted house DSP to 3/4″ x 4″.
Line up the Polka Dot piece with the bottom of the card and side. Attach the Haunted House DSP along the top of the Polka Dot piece. Cut 2 pieces of Gorgeous Grape CS to 1/2″ x 2″. Cut the end of the tags with a banner shape. Cut a piece of Black CS to 1″ x 2″. Cut a banner in the end of this piece. Attach these 3 banners to the bottom of the center piece.
Attach the whole piece to the center of the card. Attach the black fence to the bottom over the green grass. Add the “Happy Halloween” label across the front of the card. Use dimensionals to attach the Moon to the top right corner.
Now for the Inside of the Frightfully Cute Halloween Card
Rose always decorates the inside of her cards!! First cut a piece of Basic White CS to 4″ x 5 1/4″. Attach to the inside of the card.
Cut a piece of Gorgeous Grape CS to 5/8″ x 4″. Cut a piece of the DSP to 1/2″ x 4″. Attach the Designer paper to the piece of Gorgeous Grape CS and then the lower part of the White CS.
Stamp the Sentiment “Witch Way to the Candy” and cut out with a label die. Attach to the middle of the border. Hand cut out a skeleton from the cute Halloween Designer paper and attach to the label. You’re Done!
