It's spooky season, which means it's time for Halloween card making! Today, I'm presenting four cards that I created with some new and old Lawn Fawn products. Most of the stamps and dies that I used are Halloween themed, however I did add some more general themed stamps and dies as well. I thought it would be fun to show the versatility of Lawn Fawn stamps and dies to demonstrate that you can dress up any stamp to work for any holiday! All of these cards were created using some leftover die cuts I had from making my pop up box cards. Therefore, all of the stamped images were either colored with my Copic markers or zig watercolors. If you're interested to see my card making process checkout my video tutorial below.
I created this pumpkin patch scene by first stamping out some jack-o-lanterns onto some orange patterned paper. I often like to stamp on patterned paper or colored card-stock. It saves me time coloring and saves my precious Copic marker ink! The cats, squirrels and ghost on this card were colored with my Copics. I arranged my pumpkins and stamped images on top of a black stitched hillside, which I die cut from some black card-stock. I die cut the front hill from some grey card-stock and layered it on top of my black with foam tape to add some color and dimension. To set the scene, I decided to add a black die cut tree to the left side of the panel. Behind the stitched hillside panel, I added some acetate. This gives the card a really pretty glossy shine. I created the sky by ink blending seedless preserves, salty ocean and black soot distress oxide ink onto a white Nina panel. I added some water splatters for texture, and glued down a die cut moon and house to sit on top of my black hill. Once everything was dry, I attached the hillside panel on top of my ink blended background. This busy scene left me no room for a sentiment, so I just stamped it on the inside!
Here's something a little different. I decided to create a fun Halloween treat box that can be given to trick-or-treaters. I die cut the Lawn Fawn scalloped stitched box twice from from some 100 lb black card-stock. After that, I die cut a window using a Sizzix die in my stash. I die cut each window from the largest rectangle area located towards the top of the box (See video). This step isn't necessary, I chose to cut the windows so the recipient can see the candy inside the box. I added some score tape to the flaps of the die and attached the two die cuts together. I bent the tabs so the tape would attach the walls together. I also added some tape to the bottom of the box to better secure the two pieces. The box closes by pinching the top flaps together and inserting the scalloped edges inside the designated slots on both sides. To decorate this box, I created a purple die cut house with the new build a house die set and the coordinating Halloween add on. I trimmed the bottom of the house to make it shorter and more proportional to my small box.
I added some left over Halloween village houses around the entire box. I left the front of the box more bare, so more candy would peek through. To finish decorating the outside of the box, I glued a few white ghosts flying above some of the houses. To add an extra cute touch, I decided to add a green scalloped circle tag with a stamped sentiment that reads "Have a faboolous day" inside. I hung the tag at the top of the box using some black and white bakers twine.
My absolute favorite stamp-set from this year's Halloween release was this cute fortune teller cat. I knew that when I received this stamp, I would create a card using the fox and bunny that came in an old Lawn Fawn Valentine themed stamp-set. The two critters are perfect, since they're facing backwards, which makes them look like they're looking at the cat and reading her "changing" crystal ball. I created the reveal wheel using the sentiments that came in the fortune teller stamp set and the circle die cut reveal wheel window add on. The sky was ink blended with squeezed lemonade, lucky clover and peacock feathers distress oxide inks. I added some stitched hills below my critters to ground them. To "Halloweenify" this card, I added some ghosties circling around the cat's crystal ball and the sentiment.
I love the vibrant colors on card four. I created the ink blended background using squeezed lemonade, wild honey and seedless preserves distress oxide ink. To add some texture to the background, I added some water splatters. I die cut a scalloped circle towards the top center of the panel. Behind the window, I added some acetate and then adhered some black card-stock. In front of the black scalloped circle window, I attached a purple haunted house with foam tape. To dress up the house further, I popped up some die cut spooky spider web gates on either side of it. Above the house, I attached two ghosts who both adorn a witch hat, broom and google eyes. Surrounding the ghosts are a few orange die cut stars. In front of the gate, I added a smaller ghost and my sentiment which was white heat embossed on black card-stock.
