Stamp It Group Halloween & Fall Blog Hop

Welcome everyone to the Stamp It Group Halloween and Fall Blog Hop!! My name is Mikki and I am super excited to have you all here today!

Please leave a comment below in the comment section to have your name entered into this months giveaway of a Birthday Card Kit!

Most people who know me know that I am not a fan of Halloween 🎃. I would much rather be setting up my Christmas Tree than watching anything spooky. Now my kids and sister LOVE Halloween. I’m not sure where I went wrong with them 😂 

We had a choice of doing Fall theme for this hop but I decided to take myself out of my comfort zone and try to use what I had on hand to create a spooky Halloween Card. I think I succeeded! Boy does this card have a cool feature to it too! 

Lets dive right into it!!

You can see from the photo that we are using 1 retired product. The Wicked Dies from I believe 2020. I only have a handful of Halloween anything and this die just happens to be one I purchased for my sisters Hallowedding. You can easily replace the sentiment “Wicked” with anything you want. 

Paper Dimensions are pretty basic, nothing fancy. 

Basic Black Cardstock base: 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” scored at 4-1/4”

Coastal Cabana Cardstock : 5-1/2” x 4-1/4”

Basic Black Cardstock: 5-1/2” x 4-1/4”

Basic White Cardstock: 5-1/4” x 4”

You will also need a scrap piece of White Cardstock for the moon.  I do have a full list of products used below with links to them in my store. 

This card has a lot of little details but stay with me. It will be worth it. I promise! Normally I would a printable PDF for you but due to time constraints and family obligations I have not created one yet. I can most definitely get one up later on if you all want it to refer to later!!

Step by Step on how I created this beauty: 

I want to add a quick note here about the ink choices. You have to use a StazOn or alcohol based ink for the black color. If you do not, when you use the regular colors such as the Coastal Cabana, the black will just transfer into the brush and discolor everything!

Cut our the Aspen Tree Die onto the 5-1/2” x 4-1/4” Basic Black piece. Someone forgot to photograph the cutting process, but we’re gonna skip over those facts 🤣 I would also advise cutting 2 of these. You’re gonna need a mask later on. 

For the sentiment, I cut out the Wicked die on the 6” x 6” Glow In the Dark Specialty paper that is in our current Mini Catalog. 

I placed it onto the card front with dimensionals to add a little pop to it. 

For the final reveal!!! Does it glow??

Of course it glows in the dark on a Wicked Spooky Night!!!

Now I went bonkers with the way this turned out and created 3 different cards in 3 different colors because why not make more experiments! **Insert Stitch evil laugh here**

I surprised myself and am very pleased that the experiments where successfully brought to life!!

These were a lot of fun to make!

Real Red, Coastal Cabana and Lemon Lime Twist
Are the sooOOoo Cool or what??!!!!

While editing the photos, my brain went “WAAIIT… Can the moon glow too?” Well, once the idea was in my head of course I had to try it!!

The moon can definitely GLOW bright on a “Wicked” night! Use StazOn for the moon stamp on the Glow in the Dark Paper to prevent smudges!

I hope this crazy adventure of mine has helped inspire you! I have learned that the power of creativity is a beautiful thing! It allows you to take what you have and create something unique and totally different!!
