Trick or Treat Card

trick-or-treat-card

For my second card with my new My Mind’s Eye stamp set, I used the witch stamp as the main image.  First, I stamped the witch in black ink, then colored it in with Spectrum Noir markers and cut it out. I colored a piece of white cardstock with orange ink for the background.  I thought a jagged-edged die cut would give a nice Halloween-y feel, so I created a random shape with my Silhouette machine and cut it out of patterned paper.

I adhered the patterned paper onto the orange-inked piece of cardstock, then stamped the sentiment in black ink.  I glued a piece of ribbon, then adhered the witch with dimensional adhesive.

Supplies used:

  • Stamps: My Mind’s Eye
  • Markers: Spectrum Noir
  • Die cut: Silhouette

Spooky Monsters Card

frankenstein-card

There are so many great Halloween stamp sets!  Even though I have several, I picked up a new set recently from My Mind’s Eye.

I decided to use the cute Frankenstein monster stamp as a pattern for a card.  First, I cut a piece of white cardstock with zigzag scissors.  Amazingly, I managed to stamp the 6 monsters perfectly (more or less) on the first try, using black ink.  I colored them in with Spectrum Noir markers.  Then I stamped “spooky night” using Distress Ink three times from the same set and cut them out (just the “spooky” part) with zigzag scissors.  I adhered the sentiments to the card with dimensional adhesive.

I applied washi tape to a card form to create the green background, then I adhered the stamped piece to it.  That was it!

Supplies used:

  • Ink: Distress Ink, miscellaneous
  • Stamps: My Mind’s Eye
  • Markers: Spectrum Noir
  • washi tape: Scotch
