For my card, I decided to play with the Halloween themed goodies from the most recent release. The stamps and coordinating sentiments are just too cute, and I know my neighbors who have three young kids will love this card.

Background. To start, I die cut the ghosts randomly 7 times from an A2 sized panel of white cardstock using the Boo Day Confetti Cuts. Behind the white panel, I used the ghost pattern paper from the Hello Holidays paper pack. I shaded each ghost with a little copic marker to highlight the green and purple in my sentiment. I shaded each ghost with YG41 and BV02. Next, I stamped the word ‘boo’ from the stamp set randomly around the panel in wilted violet distress oxide ink. I finished the background with a few splatters of Distress Bubbling Cauldron mica spray.

Sentiment and final touches. For the sentiment, I used the Layered Boo Confetti Cuts. I started by ink smooshing and spraying a piece of watercolor paper with distress oxides and mica spray in Bubbling Cauldron, Hocus Pocus, and Empty Tomb. I smooshed and dried several layers until I was happy. Once the panel was dry, I die cut it with the top layer of the Boo die. The shadow layer was cut from vellum. I heat embossed the sub sentiment in white on black cardstock. I glued the ends of the sub sentiment down and added volume to the center to make it look like a banner. I added a ghost that I stamped and colored from a previous card on a mini action wobbler for an interactive element on my card. Head over to my IG to see a short video of the ghost waving hello. Lastly, I added some black jewels for some sparkle, and that’s it!

Hope you’re inspired to pull out some of your RC supplies and play along with us this month!
