Hello crafty friends! Angelica Conrad here with three cards made for Sweet Stamp Shop’s September’s release of the Squad Ghouls Stamp Set. How cute are the witches on this set! I just couldn’t wait to color them!
Spooky Halloween Card #1
Stamp Out 2 Witches and Color
To create this simple Halloween card, I first stamped out the witches twice. Next, I used Copic markers to color them. Then, I cut them out and set them aside so I could build a spooky background scene for them.
Create a Night Sky using Distress Ink Pads
Next, I pulled out two Distress Ink pads: Saphire and Black Soot and then taped off the top third of a trimmed card panel, and ink blended a night sky. Then I sprayed the ink with a shimmer mist for a starry effect.
Use Glitter Cardstock to Create the Moon
To create the moon, I circle die-cut white glitter cardstock and then glued it to the night sky. Next, I used a thin strip of black glitter paper to ground the scene. I then stamped the sentiment below the scene and attached the witches using 3D foam squares.
Embellish with Midnight Black Jewels
I attached the card front to a trimmed down craft foam panel, then attached to an A2 size card base. I added midnight black jewels as a finishing touch.
Spooky Halloween Card #2
For this simple Halloween card, I took the same exact steps I did for Spooky Halloween Card #1 but used only the bottom half of the card to build the scene.
Spooky Halloween Card #3
Stamp Accessories on to Cardstock
This simple card was made by stamping the briefcase, magic book, and vacuum stamps from the Squad Ghouls set in random order on to the cardstock I cut out.
Color Stamps with Copic Markers
Next, I used the Copic markers to color the stamps, trimmed the panel down, and attached the panel to the A2 card base with double-sided adhesive.
Stamp Sentiments Using Embossing Ink
Next, I stamped the “I Put a Spell on You” sentiment from the Squad Ghouls stamp set using Embossing Ink, and heat embossed it with White Embossing Powder.
Use 3D Foam Squares for Extra Pop
I then trimmed the paper down, mounted it onto coordinating green glitter paper, and attached it to the card with 3D foam squares.
I hope these three card examples brings you a ton of inspiration on how you can use the Squad Ghouls Stamp set from Sweet Stamp Shop to create super simple and spooky Halloween Cards.
