HEY FRIENDS! It’s here — the new Halloween 2022 Release by Colorado Craft Company. The release includes BRAND NEW, NEVER SEEN BEFORE illustrations by Anita Jeram as well as new stamps sets from the Lovely Legs and Big and Bold lines. Knowing my love for all things Anita Jeram, Adrienne and Amy sent me three of the new sets to play with.

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.
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.
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.
