Robin's Nest & VLVStamps: "Happy Halloween" Card


Halloween is nearing and I'm getting pretty excited!
Creating projects for my favorite holiday has been so much easier this year with Robin's Nest gorgeous papers. Today, I'm sharing a "Happy Halloween" Card, created with Robin's Nest papers and 2 stamps from Viva Las Vegas Stamps.

Be sure to visit the Robin's Nest Blog and VSLS Blog for more ideas and inspiration.

3 Robin's Nest papers: Glitter Sepia Trees on Linen paper, Glitter Getaway Swirl paper, Glitter Orange Crackle paper
Viva Las Vegas Stamps: Flying Witch on Broom and Cat and Jack-O-Lantern
beige cardstock, Fabrico markers, black embossing powder with blue pearl pigment, Perfect Pedium pad, Palette ink pad: Burnt Sienna, 1" circle punch, scrap yellow paper, decorating chalks (ColorZ Chalks), label maker
, embossing tool.

I colored the Cat and Jack-O-Lantern image with markers, then huffed on it and stamped onto beige card stock and cut out. It is glued to a hand trimmed section of Glitter Getaway Swirl paper. The moon is a 1" circle punched from scrap yellow paper and glued onto the trimmed Glitter Sepia Trees on Linen paper. Then I stamped with Perfect Medium and embossed with black embossing powder mixed with blue pearl pigments and heat set. I added dark clouds to the sky with decorating chalks and inked the edges with Burnt Sienna ink pad. Add these layers to the card front base of Glitter Orange Crackle paper with inked edges. Punch the sentiment with a label maker and adhere as shown.

Thanks for stopping by the blog!
Happy Creating,
