It’s October! Time to get the Halloween cards made! 🎃
Unity Stamp Company has some of the most adorable Halloween stamps! This one is called Count – the set includes 2 sentiment stamps along with the Count. The Halloween Greetings stamp is from another set called Cuddlebug Bat – stay tuned for a card using that set soon.
I stamped the Count with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on white card stock and colored it with Copic markers. I trimmed it close and brushed on black ink using these amazing Blender Brushes from Taylored Expressions.
I have to take a minute and gush over these Blender Brushes from Taylored Expressions! They are so amazing! Add a little ink from your favorite ink pad, and it just flows onto the card stock. The brushes are so soft – it takes very little effort to add color to your card stock. I didn’t get them when they first came out, but I am so glad I decided to purchase them…I just love them!! I think they are on pre-order again, because they keep selling out. But if you are interested in them, go ahead and pre-order – they are worth the wait!!
Back to the card… I die cut a frame using the Dotted Scallop Rectangle Dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs from green card stock and attached the stamped image. I added a black ribbon to a panel of patterned card stock, tied one side with a thin orange ribbon, and attached it to an orange card. The stamped image of the Count is attached to the card with foam tape. I stamped the sentiment with orange ink on white card stock, brushed on orange ink with the Blender Brushes, and attached it to the card.
Happy Halloween! 🎃
