Peeking Halloween Ghosts

Here is another fun Halloween card for you! This one features a sparkly spider web and ghosts following a cute owl trick-or-treater. Take a look:




Stamps: Warmest of Wishes, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Cardstock: Basic Grey, Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White
DSP: Spice Cake
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch, Neutrals Brads, Needle Tool, Mat Pack, Owl Punch, Spider Web Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Dazzling Details, Stampin' Dimensionals, Pumpkin Pie Marker, Two-Way Glue Pen

The card base is Basic Grey cardstock cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½” and scored at 4 ¼”. A piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock was cut at 3 ¾” x 5” and was run through the Big Shot in the Spider Web Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Then Dazzling Details was added to the raised lines that the embossing folder created. This piece was set aside to dry.

A piece of Basic Black cardstock was cut at 2” x 3 ¾”. A piece of Spice Cake DSP was cut at 1 7/8” x 3 ¾”. The DSP was adhered on top of the Basic Black cardstock. On another project I had changed my mind on how large I wanted a mat to be, so I had these 1/8” wide strips of cardstock lying next to my paper cutter. I adhered these two strips on top of the DSP with Two-Way Glue Pen, then trimmed the strips to the width of the DSP with Paper Snips.

The owl from Warmest of Wishes was stamped in Basic Black ink onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock. The mask, nose, and bag were colored in with the Pumpkin Pie marker. The owl was punched out with the Owl punch. I also used the owl punch to punch out two owls from Whisper White cardstock and four of the smallest circles in Basic Black. The feet of the Whisper White owls were cut off and the eyes were added. This created the ghosts.

Now that your spider web is dry this panel is adhered to a 4” x 5 ¼” piece of Basic Black cardstock and this panel was adhered to the card front. The ghosts were adhered to the back of the DSP/Basic Black panel then this panel was adhered to the card front. The owl was adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.


The greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes was stamped in Pumpkin Pie ink onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock then was punched out with the Word Window punch. The Modern Label punch was used on a scrap of Basic Grey cardstock. The greeting was adhered to the Basic Grey modern label. Then the Paper Piercer and Mat Pack were used to pierce a hole in each side of the label and two black brads from the Neutrals Brads were added. The greeting was adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.


I just love how the sparkly spider web in the background came out! Such a fun Halloween card! Come back later to see the last project for today!
