Spooky Wishes Halloween Cupcake Card with Pretty Pink Posh

Tuesday, August 22, 2023

I am just loving the new release from Pretty Pink Posh! Halloween is the best time of the year and I'm excited to share my recent video project for PPP. Before I start my video, I stamped four of the six cupcakes from the Halloween Cupcakes Stamp Set and used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out. I also cut out the Spooky Wishes Shadow Dies out of purple (for the shadow) and holographic (for the words) cardstocks. To make sure it has enough time to dry, we’re going to start with the stenciled background. I cut a piece of light grey cardstock slightly smaller than A2, 4-1/8 x 5-3/8".

Using Distress Inks, I stenciled different colors through the layers of the cute candies from the Layered Candy Treats Stencils; the different colors were Spun Sugar, Dried Marigold, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Salvaged Patina, Milled Lavender and Lost Shadow. For the areas that layered on top of other colors of the candies, I used some Pearl White Stardust Butter stencil paste to add some shine and dimension.

Before putting my inks away, I used the Milled Lavender to ink the purple Spooky Wishes Shadow die cut pieces so they have a bit of an ombre look to them. I then layered the word die cut pieces with liquid adhesive to finish off my sentiment. Next I colored in my images with Ohuhu Art Honolulu Markers and added some white gel pen accents for highlights on the images.

To assemble the card, I glued the grey, stenciled cardstock to the center of an A2 card base and layered on the sentiment and cupcakes to the card with foam adhesive. I just love how fun the candies look and the soft colors - pastel Halloween is just my favorite combination. I hope this card brings a smile to your face today!
