Welcome to InKing Royalty’s October Blog Hop! Boo! Today we are sharing scary and sweet projects perfect for Halloween. We are excited to share our creations and hope you love them! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.
Halloween to me is all about the fun side and none of the scary. My card is about Halloween Happiness and a sparkly “good” witch.
Stamps and Punches
Today’s card could have been made with one stamp set, but I let my mind wander and ended up expanding on the original idea. The Bewitching Bundle was the beginning of this one. The witch’s hat and feet were stamped and then colored with Stamping Blends. For the hat, it was then punched using the matching Witch’s Hat Punch. The glimmer hat band is part of the punch as well as the scattering of little stars.
For the “body” of the witch the Alphabest Bundle was used to create the BOO body parts. The letters from the Alphabest stamp set were stamped onto the 2022-2024 In Color Glimmer Paper of Orchid Oasis. They were punched using the matching Best Label Punch. To save this beautiful Glimmer Paper, I stamped and punched from the already cut layer. By punching in the center no one knows that it has holes in it!
The sentiments on the inside of the card are from the Scary Cute stamp set. As I said in the beginning, I like Happy and not scary. So both of the sentiments are along the Happy line. The center sentiment has more of the little stars to give it some color. And for the lower sentiment I went with my favorite punch, the Double Oval Punch, to give some more of the Orchid Oasis Glimmer Paper.
The In Color Glimmer Paper has been mentioned and is the bling on this card. But the other colors and DSP carry a lot of the weight as well. The two pieces of DSP, actually three if you count the inside bottom flap, are from the Host rewards Paper named Celebrate Everything Designer Series Paper. This is the same paper that I used on Monday’s card. Believe me when I say that you really want this pack of paper!!
This fun fold card is one from The Paper Pixie that she calls a Joy Fold. I tweaked her measurements a little by adding the layer of glimmer paper. Between the two photos you should be able to see how it goes together.
