Happy Halloween

 


Hi friends!  It's been really hot in Southern California this week.  The thought of fall and cooler weather makes the heat somewhat bearable.  I've created a fun Halloween shaker card featuring pretty pink posh products.  

To start, I cut a piece of cardstock to A2 size.  Next, using the stitched duo 3 die I cut a center "window" piece.  Next, I used the honey bee stamps perfect bricks stencil and stormy sky distress oxide ink to create a brick pattern.  A piece of clear plastic was adhered to the back of the window to create a shaker window.  Black stazOn ink used to stamp the sentiment from the trick or treat friends stamp set.  

  Next, using white cardstock, I cut the trees, grass and white frame from the nature essentials die.  After all the pieces were cut, I arranged them to the front of the card to create a background. 


Images from trick or treat friends and halloween friends were stamped using black copic-friendly ink and closed using copics.  For the vampire boy I used: R27, R35, R24 and R39, E55, E53, E50, 100, E49, E44. C1 and C0 used for this white shirt, R20 and RV00 for the cheeks.  Pumpkins: YR07, YR16, Y18, Y06.  White gel pen used for the accents.  

The background panel was ink blended using the following distress oxide inks (top to bottom): Squeezed lemonade, mustard seed, spiced marmalade, ripe persimmon, festive berries.  The die cut panel was adhered to an A2 piece of white cardstock prior to adhering the shaker front.

Foam tape was added to the back of the shaker window and then I added the following pretty pink posh sequins: 4mm lemon drop, 4mm pumpkin, 6mm sunshine glow and 6mm strawberry burst.  The bat confetti is from Michael's craft store.  The card front shaker was then adhered to an A2 white card base.


 Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Hope you all stay cool!
