Halloween Stars

Halloween Stars



Morning! Deborah here with you today. I can hardly believe it’s the last week of October – this month has flown by. My favourite holiday of the year is this month – Halloween! This card features a couple of techniques – stamping my own background, and the inlaid die technique for the sentiment.


Sometimes it’s hard to think of ideas and my mojo has gone AWOL a bit. However, browsing the Internet, I came across a card designed by Therese Calvird and I just had to CASE it. I changed the design from portrait to landscape, the colours, the theme, and my card is layered.



I used Altenew’s Halftone Stars to create the background pattern with traditional Halloween colours – orange, green and purple. I stamped a piece of card larger than I needed, and once I’d selected the area I wanted, cut the panel to 5¾” x 4”. I used Concord & 9th’s All the Letters dies to cut out the word ‘Halloween’ towards the bottom of the panel. I also die cut the complete word three times in black card and layered the letters together with the patterned letter as the top layer. I stamped word ‘happy’ from Lawn Fawn’s Happy Add On; Family stamp set in bold black above the die cut word. I then layered the panel onto a piece of black card and added it to the front of an A6 (US size 6¼” x 4½”). I finished by adhering the letters to form the word ‘Halloween.’



Inside the card, I cut a mat layer of black card. On the white panel, I stamped one of the halftone stars diagonally across the middle of the panel. I finished the inside by adding a greeting which is made up from two Lawn Fawn stamp sets – the word ‘Halloween’ comes from Celebration Scripty Sentiments. I cut off the word happy to make it easier to stamp the single word. The two smaller sentiments come from Scripty Autumn Sentiments – I added them in coloured ink to match the colours of the stars.


This card is for my son – he’s also likes Halloween, but he’s not into the cute stuff, so I’m pleased that I was able to work out how to use non-Halloween stamps for this card. That’s all from me today. See you again next week.

Deborah, x
