Card Spotlight: Boo Crew (Card 2)

Hello my crafty friends and thank you for coming by today! I’m loving the two Halloween stamp sets I got for this year and I wanted to share with you yet another card I made using the Simon Says Stamp “The Boo Crew” stamp set. To check it out, and it’s dies, check it out here. I had a lot of fun with this card, I made a slimline card this time. Let me show you what I created!

I cut a piece of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110lb cardstock* down to 8 1/4″ x 6 1/2″ and scored at 3 1/4″. I accidentally bought the wrong size business envelopes so I had to cut the card to be a little smaller than my normal slimline card which is 8 1/2″ x 7″ and scored at 3 1/2″. I stared out my using the Catherine Pooler ‘Faceted Slimline Stencil’ and ink blended the background directly onto the card. I used Pixie Spray temporary adhesive to stick the stencil to the card since it is a very fine stencil and I feared that if I just used painters tape that the lines would shift about. I also used Catherine Pooler dye inks in Garden Party, Flirty Fuschia, and Orange Twist. I did the blending with my Pink & Main Ergonomic Blending Brush, both the mini and the regular size. Those blending brushes made ink blending so pleasant, my hand didn’t hurt so much after I was done.

I then stamped almost every single image from the ‘The Boo Crew” stamp set using my Mini Misti and Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I stamped my images onto Xpress It cardstock because I used my Copic Markers to color all of the images. I then used my Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen in Crystal Clear over the sentiments, the witch image, the witch hat, the arms of the ghosts, and the gravestone. Once everything was colored I die I cut everything using the matching dies. I used my Ranger Multi Medium Matte to attach all of the die cuts to my card. I then stamped two smaller sentiments with Versamark and heat embossed them with Ranger Fine Detail White embossing powder. I then used my Tim Holtz Guillotine trimmer to trim them down so that they would fit with each of the larger word sentiments. The last little touch I added was not gems or sequins, but Glossy Accents*, and I put it on the piece of candy corner in the ‘Halloween’ sentiment.

And that’s the finished card! I really love this one so much, I should make slimline cards more often. Do you make slimline cards, or do you prefer your average A2 or 4 bar size (or whatever is your preferred size)? I need to work on getting a better blend but for my first time blending with the Catherine Pooler ink and the Pink & Main brushes.
