31 Nights of Halloween - Night 18


Hello, Whimsy fans!  It's Andrea with you for Night 18, and I have a fun box card to share with you featuring the Halloweeners and Halloween Scream stamp sets.  I also have a GIVEAWAY, so be sure to read to the end of this post!


Halloweeners is one of my favorite Whimsy sets, and I knew I had to use it for my post.  I stamped the images from Halloweeners with Versafine Onyx Black ink and colored them with my Zigs.  Using my trusty ScanNCut, I cut out the images and set them aside to work on creating my box card.

Inspired by the uber-talented Rachel Alvarado, I cut two pieces of white cardstock measuring 4 1/4" x 6" and scored both pieces at 3 1/2" and 5 1/2".  After rotating the pieces, I scored them at 2 1/4".  Using my paper trimmer, I cut the panels at the 3 1/2" and 5 1/2" scoremarks, stopping at the 2 1/4" scoremark.  For the interior of the box, I cut two strips of white cardstock at 1 3/4" x 4 1/2" and scored them at 1/2" and 4".


I trimmed another piece of white cardstock 3 1/2" x 4 1/2" to create my inside panel.  I stamped the graveyard scene from Halloween Scream with Versafine Onyx Black and colored the gravestones with a gray Zig.  After masking the gravestones and hill, I blended the sky with Stormy Sky, Faded Jeans, and Black Soot Distress Oxides.  I removed the mask, covered the sky, and blended with Crushed Olive, Peeled Paint, and Black Soot Distress Oxides.  Due to the nature of the oxides, my stamped image was not as clear as when I first stamped it.  After carefully lining up the stamp onto my panel, I re-stamped the graveyard.  If you have a MISTI or similar stamping positioner, I would recommend leaving the stamp in the tool to make re-stamping super easy.


For my grass pieces, I inked up white cardstock with the same Distress Oxides used for the grass on the back panel.  I die-cut the cardstock with the Grass & Cloud Edger Dies and trimmed each piece to 3 1/2".  With the Dracula's Coffin Dies, I die-cut two tombstones from gray cardstock.  I added gray ink to the die-cuts and stamped sentiments from Halloweeners.  I die-cut the skull and crossbones from whie cardstock with the Dracula's Coffin Dies and added a little gray ink to the edges.  The bats on the back panel are from the Bats and Bubbles Border Die Set.  After all of my elements were ready, I assembled my box card with a combination of liquid adhesive and ScorTape.  To keep my colored images from bending, I added strips of white cardstock behind them, securing them to the interior crosspieces.


I decorated the flaps of my card with some Hocus Pocus Designer Paper.  I trimmed the spider web paper to 1 7/8" x 2 1/8" for the side flaps and 3 7/8" x 2 1/8" for the front.  Before attaching the piece to the front flap, I adhered the ghost and trimmed off the excess.  I inked up white cardstock with Peeled Paint Distress Oxide and die-cut it with the Happy Halloween Word Dies.  I layered that die-cut onto a white die-cut and adhered them to the flap.  I stamped a sentiment from You're My Boo onto a strip of white cardstock and popped it up with foam tape.

I hope you were inspired by my spooky box card.  Now, are you ready for a GIVEAWAY?!  One lucky commenter will win the following collection: Happy Halloween Word Dies, Dracula's Coffin Dies, and Bats and Bubbles Border Dies.  To enter the giveaway, simply leave a comment below sharing a favorite Halloween story (The scarier, the better!).

31 Nights of Halloween - Night 17



Hi everyone, Bev here with my card for the fun 31 Nights of Halloween event that Whimsy Stamps are running during October.

I have used the so so sweet Pumpkin Patch for my contribution to the event, because .... those penguins!!  I die cut some pumpkins from the Build a Pumpkin Patch Die Set and coloured the largest one with my copic markers.  I finished off with a sentiment from the Sleepy Hollow clear stamp set.



I used copic markers to colour the image:

Penguins: C9, 7, 5, 3, 1, 0, 00; YR27, 24, Y11
Wooly hat: E74, 71, 70
Scarf: E43, 42, 40
Pumpkin: YR18, 16, YR27, 24,, 04, 01: E87, 84

I die cut around the image with the Zig Zag Stitched Rectangles Die Set.



Make sure you pop back each night this month at 6 pm to join in the 31 Nights of Halloween fun and have a chance to win some prizes!
