Whimsy Stamps Halloween release

 


Today sees the first of 4 Halloween releases from Whimsy Stamps although there are non-Halloween goodies dotted throughout to keep this old girl sane haha.


I've used the new slimline Haunted Graveyard Border Die for this card, though I chopped off both ends so it would fit on a standard A2 card.  I inked a panel of Bristol Smooth cardstock with Distress Oxides - Squeezed Lemonade, Mowed Lawn, Lucky Clover and a touch of Chipped Sapphire.  Once it was dry I splattered on some white copic ink for a starry effect.  


I stamped on the Happy Halloween sentiment from the Gnome Witch Rubber Stamp then matted the panel on to black card and then on to a piece of patterned paper from the Vintage Halloween 6 x 6 Paper Pack.


I die cut the Haunted Graveyard Border Die from textured black cardstock, popped some yellow card behind the windows and adhered this to the front of the card and finished off with some bats from the border die.  The card looked like it was missing something so I die cut a black grassy border using the Build a Fairy Garden Die Set and then inked this with Mowed Lawn and Chipped Sapphire Oxide ink.


I have another three cards to go up this week, hopefully I will be able to stay back in the swing of things and not go missing for another month.  My hubby had yet more surgery last month and yeah, things haven't been very good in my world again.  But he's home and on the mend .... again ... and I'm so grateful that we had the option to have the surgery done privately rather than wait for the NHS to get caught up, if they ever do.

  1. For a girl who doesn't 'do' Halloween, Bev, you make the most stunning Halloween cards! I wondered if something might have happened with hubby, as you'd gone quiet for a bit there. I'm sorry to hear he was back for more surgery and send huge hugs and lots of love and wishes for good healing and healthy days from here. I did wonder if your recent FB post might have had a tinge of recent stresses, but didn't want to ask there. Really hoping this is a new chapter for Tony and his health really improves from here. Life is fragile and it's so good to take stock and live in the moment. Oodles of love, Wends xoxo
