31 Nights of Halloween - Night 22 - Special Guest Crystal Komara


Hello crafty friends, welcome to Night 22 of Whimsy Stamps' "31 Nights of Halloween!"  This is Special Guest designer Crystal Komara here with you today to celebrate this annual spooktacular event.

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays to make cards for and I think Whimsy Stamps offers one of the most extensive Halloween themed product collections.  There is something for everyone, from zombies and aliens, snarky ghosts and spooky graveyards to their amazing line of slimline dies and slimline paper packs.  

Today I am sharing a slimline card featuring the Spooky large word die, the Haunted Paper Pack and the Slimline Cityscape die set.  You might even be surprised to learn that this card involved NO stamping at all!

This slimline card measures 8 1/2" x 3 1/2".  Slimline cards are designed to fit inside a regular #10 business sized envelope and require no additional postage.  The base of this slimline card was made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock.  

Card details: 

First I created the background, but cutting out the moon and tree from a piece of paper in the Haunted Paper Pack:

I fussy cut the moon and tree and adhered it to the right side of my card base:

Then I used the Slimline Cityscape dies to cut the skyline. I cut the shadow outline layer from dark grey cardstock and the top window layer from black cardstock.  I adhered the two layers together with a Tombow dot runner and adhered the skyline to the base of my card (over the moon and tree). 

Next, using the Spooky Large word die, I die cut the word "spooky" twice, the first time in black cardstock and the second time in a piece of green/white spiderweb patterned paper from the 6"x 6" Haunted Paper Pack. 

I then mixed-and-matched each the pieces together while adhering them to the card: 

I used another patterned piece of paper from the Haunted Paper Pack that had pumpkins on it and I fussy cut the pumpkins out and adhered them to the right side of the card using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension:

I hope you have enjoyed this slimline card using some of the fabulous Halloween products from Whimsy Stamps.  Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!

XO, Crystal

31 Nights of Halloween - Night 21 - Special Guest Rachel Alvarado

Good evening, Whimsy friends!  Tonight we welcome the lovely and talented Rachel Alvarado back to the blog!

Hello crafty friends! Welcome to night 21 of the Whimsy Stamps Annual 31 Nights of Halloween! I'm Rachel and I'm so happy to be guest designing tonight. I created a non-spooky, Halloween-themed box card tonight featuring some of the cute little candy corn critters from the "Candy Corn Dress Up Stamp Set". These fun little images are all decked out for a night of trick or treating!

To start my card, I first stamped my images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I then used Copic Markers to color them and used my Brother ScanNCut to quickly cut them out. Next, I used a paper trimmer to cut some black card stock and make a box card base with the help of a scoring board as well as some adhesive. I added some grassy strips into the center of my box card by diecutting some black card stock with the grass dies from the Grass and Cloud Edger Die Set.

Copic Colors Used:

  • Oranges: YR00, YR02, YR04, YR09, YR19
  • Whites: 0, C00, C1, C3
  • Black: W5, W7, W9
  • Grays: W2, W4, W6
  • Purple: V01, V15, V17, V09
  • Yellows: Y13, YR20, YR21, V12

For my ink blended pieces, I blended a mix of Spiced Marmalade, Worn Lipstick, Seedless Preserves, Wilted Violet, and Black Ink Distress Inks. Lastly, I adhered my images with some liquid adhesive as well as some trees that I had die cut using the Tree Assortment Die Set.

Thanks so much for stopping by! If you liked this card and want some more crafty inspiration, please feel free to check out my INSTAGRAM feed!

31 Nights of Halloween - Night 20 and don't forget it's release day!

Hi Everyone, it's Faye here today :)

Have you been enjoying all the spooky creations so far this month? They've been absolutely gorgeous haven't they? Before I start telling you about my card, I just wanted to remind you we've had another fab release today, if you haven't seen it yet, be sure to pop over to the store. It's cute, you won't want to miss it!

Alrighty then! Let's talk pumpkins. This row of cuties are from the FaDoodle Fall Set. I coloured them up with copics and then stamped the faces on top. Sorted.

Using the largest die from the Frame Doodles Scallop Rectangle Die Set and another die from the Wonky Stitched Rectangles, I've created a frame for the pumpkins. I used tape to hold the two dies in position so I could cut three, identical frames. I've stacked and stuck them together, to add some depth to the card. 

All I needed then, was a sweet little spider, a sentiment and this pumpkin paper from the Vintage Halloween Paper Pack and the job was done. I love it when a plan comes together.

Thanks so much for stopping by, have a great day...

31 Nights of Halloween - Night 19

Hello friends! It's Michele here with another fun Halloween card to share! I absolutely love, love, love this Slimline Hourglass Die! It is the perfect backdrop for all of your spooky Halloween goodness! The "Glass" was cut out with vellum.  I cut the "sand" using orange card stock and used the Halloween Expressions Stencil to fill it in.  I added spiders and webs from Whimsy's new die set.  I applied crackle paste over my spider and let it do its magic.  Once dry, I rubbed black ink over it.  

I added the EEK! Word and Shadow Die and a few spider sequins, from the Sparkletz-Creepy collection,  to finish off the card. 

Thank you so much for stopping by on Day 19!


31 Nights of Halloween - Night 18 - Special Guest Vyvie Nguyen


Good evening, Whimsy friends!
Tonight we welcome the lovely Vyvie Nguyen to the blog!

Vyvie created a fun, brain-shaped shaker card featuring the adorable Zombie Boy stamp set.  
She found a brain clipart image and cut it out with her Cricut.  Next, she stamped the word "brains" repeatedly to create a colorful background.  She added sequins and used her Fuse tool to seal the shaker.

She stamped one of the Zombie Boy images and colored and fussy-cut it.  She also stamped a sentiment from Zombie Boy and added it and the colored image with dimensional adhesive.

Thanks for the adorable inspiration, Vyvie!
To see more of her work, please visit her on Instagram.
