Hey everyone, Britney here! I am so excited to be on the Pawsome Stamps blog today featuring the Spooktacular Cupcakes stamp set and the Mummy Wrap background stencil from this most recent Spooktacular Release. I absolutely love this release. There are so many card possibilities. This card came together so quickly…quickly for me anyway.
I always like to start with my background first and I build up from there. I used a stitched rectangle die to cut the background panel out of white cardstock a little smaller than A2 size and another of black cardstock which is A2 size. I inked on Antique Linen distress oxide ink using the Mummy Wrap stencil. I splattered on some black paint and sat this to the side to dry. I used some liquid glue to adhere my background panel to the card base. I like to put the base under a couple of my Misti’s to help it lie flat.
I used the Misti Stamping Tool and a Copic-friendly ink to stamp images onto a piece of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock. Use your favorite color medium to color in the images. I prefer Copics usually. You can fussy cut the images or use the coordinating dies.
Stamping an image and sentiment on the inside finishes the card off nicely. It is easier to stamp an image and/or sentiment on the inside of the card before adhering the card panel to the base. The bulk of the foam tape can make it difficult to get a good impression using a Misti Stamping tool. I stamped the inside of the card with an image from the set and a sentiment from the XL Birthday Greetings stamp set.
Once the background panel was completely dry, I stamped a sentiment from the set. I laid out my images to get perfect placement and popped them up using foam tape. I finished off my images using white gel pen to add some accents. As a final finishing touch, I added Glossy Accents to the eyes of the monster and jack-o-lantern. I asked Nuvo Drops in White Blizzard to the witch cupcake. I used some of the Witches Brew sequin mix for some extra fun.
I hope you enjoyed today's card. Have a wonderful day and make sure to check out all the goodies in the Pawsome Stamps shop.
