Special Guest - Rachel Alavarado

 


Hello, Whimsy friends!  We are super excited to welcome the lovely Rachel Alavarado to the blog!

Hello crafty friends! It's Rachel here and I'm thrilled to be guest designing today for Whimsy Stamps! I absolutely love all of the amazing products that Whimsy Stamps has to offer! For my card today, I created a slimline box card featuring a semi-spooky Halloween-themed graveyard scene.


To start, I first created my box base from scratch using some black card stock, a paper trimmer, a scoring board, and adhesive. When folded, this card fits perfectly into a slimline or #10 business envelope! (See photo at bottom of this post.) I layered my card with both some white card stock and a piece of spooky patterned paper from the "Haunted" Paper Pack. I usually like to ink-blend my backgrounds but I absolutely love how easily this detailed patterned paper adds such eye-catching designs! I then added some strips of grass that I die cut from black card stock using the "Grass and Cloud Edger" Die Set. I also added a spooky fence from black card stock using the "Build-a-Graveyard" Die Set.


Next, I stamped some images from the "Sheets and Giggles" Stamp Set onto a sheet of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110lb Card Stock with some Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored them with Copic alcohol markers (colors listed on photo above) and quickly cut them out using my Brother ScanNCut machine. I then used the "Build-a-Graveyard" Die Set again to die cut some headstones from white card stock. You can simply use gray colored card stock but I wanted to color mine with Copic Markers in order to add some shading and subtle texture. If you don't feel comfortable coloring, ink-blending would work well too! I used Copic colors W1, W3, W5, and W7.


I then adhered my gravestones to the inner shelves of my card base with liquid adhesive and attached a ghost behind each gravestone. I also added some twiggy tress that I had die cut from black card stock using the Trees Assortment Die Set. For my sentiment, I used the same piece of patterned paper as I did for my card background and heat embossed the words "Trick-or-Treat" from the "Candy Corn Dress Up" Stamp Set with Fine Detail Black Embossing Powder.


Thanks so much for dropping by! If you liked this card and want more inspiration, feel free to stop by my INSTAGRAM feed! ❤️
