31 Nights of Halloween - Night 26 - Special Guest Jen Shults

Hi everyone! It's Jen Shults with you, and I am so excited to be back again for another night of Whimsy Stamps' 31 Nights of Halloween Blog Celebration!! I am so in love with all of the adorable Halloween stamps from Whimsy that I actually have two projects to share with you tonight.

My first card features this adorable zombie from Boo To You. I started by stamping the zombie on white cardstock with Tuxedo Black ink and coloring him with Copics. I fussy cut him and set him off to the side.

To build the background I used a rectangle masking stencil to ink blend the rectangle with Black Soot, Faded Jeans and Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide ink. I then splattered with water and the same inks. I used my Score Pal to score lines around the rectangle and the edge of the card. I stamped the sentiment on black cardstock with Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder. I die cut the sentiment with a banner die and adhered it to the background with foam tape, then I attached the zombie overlapping the banner, again with foam tape.

My second card uses the super adorable Going Catty clear stamp set. There are so many cute stamps in this set - I can't wait to use the scaredy cat!

To start my card I stamped the pumpkin cat on white cardstock with Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic Markers. Next I fussy cut the image and set it aside to start the background.

I cut an A2 medium grey cardbase and used a spider web stencil to ink a subtle spider web on the cardbase. I cut two deckle edge rectangles, one from light grey and one from black cardstock. I stenciled a brick texture on the light grey with light grey ink. For the circle behind the cat I die cut a stitched circle and blended purple ink over the circle in a dark to medium gradient. I stamped the sentiment on the light grey and assembled the card with foam tape.
