RI SOTW–Week of Oct 31st, 2011



Hello and Happy Halloween again!

This is my second post for today. I made this card for Repeat Impressions Stamp of the Week! This week’s SOTW is Tombstone (2317-D).  Another great addition for Halloween project! I know you won’t get to use it for this year but we always have it for next year ;) The SOTW is available exclusively to our RI blog readers at 50% OFF with the special discount code from Mon, Oct 31th to Sun, Nov 6th. To get the discount code and more information about the SOTW, please go to the RI blog, The House That Stamps Built.


I used a few more Halloween stamps, Bats (2308-E), Boo! (2316-G), and Halloween (1119-F) to create this card. The moon was used a stencil technique using the circle template. Then I masked the moon to create the background with inks and a sponge. After that, I stamped the bats (inked just small ones) and the greeting, then adhered the tombstone, that was colored with Copic markers. The card was designed with the cardstocks and designer papers. The bottom paper was stamped with the word “Boo!” randomly. To finish off, the ribbon was tied on the green border.
