EEK ... A Haunted Forest!

Haunted Forest Rubber Stamp by Stampin' Up!

Happy Friday! Our project today is another great "shoebox swap" card (created by Kathy L.) from our team meeting on Sunday. This is a very quick card to make and is ideal for busy stampers. Also good for procrastinators. Hee!

The star of our show is the Stampin’ Up! Haunted Forest stamp - one of the terrific À la Carte single rubber stamps offered in a variety of styles. It was stamped on Cajun Craze card stock using VersaMark ink, then heat embossed with Black Embossing Powder and layered onto Daffodil Delight. A tiny snippet of the black Scallop Dots Ribbon was attached peeking out from this layer, before adhering it to the card front.

Concord Crush card stock makes a great impression (ha ha - get it?) thanks to the Spider Web Embossing Folder and a quick spin through the Big Shot. Everything gets layered onto a Basic Black card base.

What about the inside?
Haunting Hill Rubber Stamp Jumbo Wheel
I'm glad you asked! The Haunting Hill Jumbo Wheel was inked up with VersaMark and rolled across Whisper White card stock. After heat embossing with Black Embossing Powder, the image was colored in using Watercolor Pencils and blended with an Aqua Painter.

HIP TIP: If you're pressed for time, skip the watercoloring. The image looks just fine without it. You could also skip the embossing altogether and just use Classic Ink or StazOn.

Only two more weeks until the ghosts and goblins start taking over your neighborhood.  Be afraid. Be very afraid. Bwahahahaha.
