Happy Halloweeds with Whimsy Stamps

Tuesday, September 5, 2023

One of my favorite sets from Whimsy Stamps is this adorable Halloweeds Stamp Set. It's just a silly little jar of cute Halloween things and I like to use it every year. For this year, it's the star of the show on this 5x7 card! I'm playing along with last Friday's episode of Craft Roulette and it also worked perfectly for this month's Show Us Your SheetLoad sketch!

I started with finding toner sheets I liked best from Whimsy Stamps and used my laminator to add orange foil to spiders and green foil to the vines. Using Distress Inks, I blended purple onto the spiders and green onto the vines along with some water and shiny splatter. I cut them down following the sketch and layered the three panels onto a piece of black cardstock.

Next I wrapped some orange twine around the panel like a belt and popped it up to a sheet of grey cardstock that was trimmed slightly smaller than 5x7, then adhered that to my 5x7 card base. I die cut the largest nested web die out of black cardstock and embossed my sentiment in white. I popped it up on the card a little lower than I normally do to follow the card sketch.

My image was stamped and colored with alcohol markers (I love all the little images under the leaves) inspired by veggies I would imagine would be at a farm house - eggplants, carrots, pumpkins, lettuce... I fussy cut around the image and used a white gel pen to cover up any part of the stamped image I didn't want showing. I also popped it up to the card, just above my sentiment, and grabbed my White Pops of Color to add clusters of Pops.

I hope you like my take on the two challenges and make sure to check out all of the amazing Halloween products from Whimsy Stamps! There is also more coming out this month I'm excited to share with you!
