Eek! Cats & Bats Halloween Card with Whimsy Stamps

Thursday, August 31, 2023

The last day of the month really snuck up on me and I did not get a video done in time to get it edited and up, but don't worry... There will be one tomorrow. But I still wanted to share something Halloween related so I have my next Whimsy Stamps Halloween project to share using a mix of older and new Halloween products. Also, my sketch is inspired by the August 2023 Show Us Your SheetLoad from Call Me Crafty Al

I started with making my background with the Bats Galore embossing folder. As it's slimline sized, I ran it through twice embossing the top of grey cardstock and then the bottom. I didn't worry about where they met on the cardstock as I knew it would be covered. I distressed some Black Soot around the edges of this 4x5-1/4" panel and splattered on some black ink. While it was drying, I stamped, colored and die cut my cute cat images! Abigail colored along with me and I snuck her pumpkin she colored inside my card.

Next I die cut my Eek! sentiment in black and orange glitter cardstock and bats out of black cardstock. I followed the sketch dimensions and layout to cut my Bookeh paper and strips of purple glitter cardstock. I layered the card together and added it to an A2, side-folding card base. I wanted to bring in more green as it was the color on the images I had not incorporated yet.

Using Key Lime Pops of Color, I added eyes for my bats and added some around the card. I hope you enjoyed this Halloween inspiration today and come back tomorrow for my official Halloween video of the month... next month.
