Today’s Project

To kick off the Halloween 2022 Release, I have a card featuring the Anita Jeram Scaredy Cat stamp set. If you like masking, then this is the card for you! If masking is not your thing, coordinating dies are also available.

Featured Products:

To start, I cut a piece of Hammermill Smooth Cardstock to 4.25″ x 5.5″ and stamped the trick or treaters along the bottom using Hero Arts Intense Black Ink. I stamped the same images on a piece of Masking Magic, fussy cut the images, and applied the masks to the panel.

Next, I stamped the fence using Hero Arts Intense Black Ink. Afterwards, I used medium sized moon from the Tim Holtz Moon Mask Stencil set and lightly traced the outline of the moon in pencil. Then I started coloring, use the Copic markers listed below:

  • Cat 1: BV20, BV23, BV25 (fur); R35, R56, R59 (coat); E01, E04 (collar & cuffs); YR04, YR09 (pumpkin)
  • Cat 2: BV20, BV23, BV25 (fur); V2, V25, V28 (hat); YR09 (pumpkin)
  • Cat 3: E13, E15, E19 (fur); YG03, YG17, G29 (cape)
  • Cat 4: C0, C1 (fur); V2, V25, V28 (coat); E01, E04 (collar & cuffs); YR09 (bag)
  • Sky: FB2, B28, B69, B79, BV08
  • Moon: Y21, YR23, Y26, B00
  • Pillars: W1, W3, W5, W7
  • Gate: T5, T7

For the moon, I lightly colored using Y21, leaving a small white border along the inside. For the moon details, I used the coordinating mask to color in the features using YR23 and Y26. Then I used B00 to color the white space, creating the glow around the moon.

I stamped the sentiment on the moon using Versafine ink, covered the ink with clear embossing powder, and heat set the powder.

Finally, I trimmed the panel to 4″ x 5.5″ and applied craft foam to the back using Beacon’s 3-in-1 Advanced Craft Glue. Craft foam is getting hard to find, so you could use foam tape if you prefer. I glued a piece of Licorice Cardstock to an A2 cardbase cut from Neenah Classic Crest and then adhered the image panel to the center as shown.
