#DEAD with Amanda

September 4, 2019

Hey guys!  It’s Amanda back again with a spooky card!

It’s hard to believe it’s almost Fall!  Personally, I am NOT ready yet.. but I do love Halloween cards!!

This cute card uses the Boo Crew stamp set!   Keep reading to see how I made this card.. or go purchase this stamp set first and then come right back!!  🙂

I started with creating my frame for the forefront.  I did this first so that I could see where I’d want to place my moon.

I quickly cut out some grass with black card stock.I used masking paper to cut out a circle.I placed my circle mask where I wanted my moon to be.I blended a background using “twisted citron”, “mowed lawn”, “hickory smoke” and “black soot”.

I used some white “picket fence” re-inker to flick “stars” using a paintbrush and water.

Using YG000, YG21, and YG23, I created an outline on my moon.

I colored the inside of my moon with C00 and C0.Using my Boo Crew stamp set, I made 3 ghosts and 2 bats.  I love the little face choices for the ghosts!

Using my PixScan mat for my Silhouette Cameo, I traced and offset my stamped images.  Then, I cut them out using my Cameo machine.I colored in my stamped images using my Copics.

I stamped my sentiments, using a Creative Corner L Ruler and Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

I stamped a couple more bats for my background.

Now, it’s time to start putting the card together!  I adhered the grass first, using 3D foam strips.

I used the same adhesive for the frame (except where it would be on top of the grass – I used flat adhesive there.)

I used glue for the bats and foam squares for the ghosts.

For the final touch, I put a cute little Shelley bow on one of my ghosts.  I also glued a few Aurora Deluxe Gems and Angie Rainbow Gems.

Here are some closeups!

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial!  Have fun making your Halloween cards!  🙂

Xoxo, Amanda
