Do you make Halloween cards? I have never really made Halloween cards in the past, nor have I really celebrated this holiday. However, I have seen such adorable Halloween stamps available this year, I have decided to treat myself to a single Halloween set to make a few cards for my American friends. The lucky chosen one was this cute mini stamp set by Waffle Flower Crafts, called “Boo Stamp Set“, since this bear is one of my favourite stamp characters out there!
The moon was die cut out of a shimmery cream paper and the “Boo” sentiment was custom made using my “Cutaway Alpha Stamp Set“, also from Waffle Flower. For the cloud background I used a stencil I previously created myself from some acetate (check out how I did it on this video) and some purple ink. I used my Caran d’Ache Luminance colour pencils (Prismacolors are hard to come by in Switzerland) to colour in the images in this card, then used a little stump and some baby oil to smooth out the colouring. The stumps and the baby oil really help smooth out those lines without having to inhale all of those Gamsol fumes!
I had previously shared this card on my Instagram and since its now on its way to its recipient, I figured it was about time I shared it here too! If I was making it again, I would probably use the little cobweb stamp to go underneath the “Boo” sentiment instead of scribbling that wriggly line. Still, I’m pretty chuffed with this card. My first ever Halloween one! Make sure to tag me on IG if you’re also making Halloween projects this year. I would love to see what you create!
Until next time!
