Here is a quick little Halloween card that is all about ink and stamping! Just one stamp set and a couple of colors of ink combine to create a fun little card that is easy to make.
To begin, cut a piece of cardstock to 8.5″x5.5″. Fold the cardstock in half to create a top fold card. Cut a piece of orange cardstock to 4.25″x5.5″. Brush the edges of the cardstock with Black Soot Distress Ink. Adhere the cardstock to the front of the card. Cut a piece of manila cardstock to 4″x5.25″.
Ink the row of children stamp with Black Soot Distress Ink. Use a dry cloth to wipe the black ink off of the pumpkin on the stamp. I inked the pumpkin with Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink.
While the ink is still wet, sprinkle clear embossing powder on the ink. Tap off the excess. Heat the embossing powder with a heat tool to melt the powder.
Stamp the large spider web image on the card, overlapping onto the children using Weathered Wood Distress Ink. Use a dry cloth to wipe the ink off of the embossed image of the children. While the Weathered Wood ink is still wet, sprinkle Bridal Tinsel embossing powder (or another sparkle embossing powder). Tap off the excess and heat the powder to melt.
Color the background by applying Dried Marigold, Ripe Persimmon, and Seedless Preserves Distress Ink using an ink blending tool. Mist water onto your hand and flick the water onto the manila piece to create water blots in the background ink. Use a heat tool to dry the piece. Use an ink blending tool to apply Black Soot Distress Ink the edges of the cardstock piece.
In the “Trick or Treat” stamp with Seedless Preserves Distress Ink. Stamp the sentiment on the card in the top left corner of the manila cardstock piece. The embossed areas will resist the ink, making it look as if the sentiment was stamped before the other images.
