Spook-tacularly Spooky!

Hey Stampers! Hope you are having a great weekend!

Today, I'm showing you one of my Halloween cards. I love making Halloween cards! This one is 4 1/4 x 4 1/4. I used the stamp sets, Spook-tacular and Spooky Borders.

For the main image, I stamped the ghost from Spook-tacular on to Neenah White cardstock, then stamped the sentiment from the same set right over the top. I used my Circle Nesties to cut him out, and for the layered behind him. I outlined the ghost with my Copic Marker B00. I used a Quickie Glue pen on the bottom of the ghost and added some Sugar Sparkly fluff.

I did the same thing to the spider hanging on the side. Add glue with the Quickie Glue Pen on the body and head, then dump on Black Eyeliner Sparkly Fluff, then tap off and let dry. You can click on the photo to see a bigger version.

The ghost border from the stamp set Spooky Boarders is stamped twice. Once with Ranger Soot Black, then over the top again with Stampin' Up's Whisper White. I added little dots over the black ones that stamped out with the sentiment with my Inkssentials Opaque white gel pen. The main image is popped up with Jody's Foam Dots.

It's not too early to start thinking about Halloween. I'm going to be thinking about treat bags over the next few weeks and get a head start on that for Averie's classroom. I'm always doing that last minute and it kills me. Let's see how my plan works! Wish me luck!
