Gumpin Pumpkin Slimline Card with Whimsy Stamps

Friday, September 15, 2023

I know I tend to be more of a spooky cute Halloween crafter, but I wanted to share something more on the dark and creepy side today! This project uses some recently released Whimsy Stamps products and a few of my favorite Ranger Ink products for Halloween. I started with trimming my slimline background paper down to 3.25x8.25" as I'll be making a slimline card. I die cut the Nightmare Die out of black cardstock and trimmed it down to 8.25" and making sure you could still see a lot of the background design.

Before gluing it down, I sprayed on some Distress Mica Spray and using my finger, I added Grit Paste around the edges of the Nightmare cut out. While it dried, I also added some Black Texture Paste to the edges of my slimline card base and set that aside to dry, too.

Next I stamped my three pumpkin images from the Grumpin Pumpkin stamp set in black ink and used my Distress Watercolor Pencils to color them in. I used my MISTI to stamp them so I stamped more black ink on top of them when I was done watercoloring to make sure my images had a vibrant outline. I used the coordinating Outline Dies to cut them out as well as my flying witch from Roaming Monsters Die Set out of black cardstock.

Once everything was dry, I layered the background paper to the card base with foam adhesive and glued down the Nightmare cut out with liquid adhesive. I glued my flying with witch with liquid adhesive, too. My pumpkins were adhered with more foam adhesive and then stamped my "Boo!" sentiment with black ink. I loved combining Whimsy with Ranger together for Halloween! They're the perfect duo.
