We hope everyone has a SPOOKtaularly Perfect Halloween. We have some great cards to share with you today. They were created by the very talented Roxie Glaza for you today. Hope they give you a chill!
The image panel was created using the sponging technique with distress inks. I stamped the trees with Memento ink and the witch with StazOn ink because it’s thicker and will cover the tree line image so no masking needed, I use a stamp positioner in case I need to stamp again.
For each bat I punched out two shapes and used foam tape to connect them then tacky glue to attach to the card.
For the faux brads I cut from black paper 1/8″ circles using a die, cover them with Aleene’s Paper Glaze and if you want them to shine cover with Copic marker. They are attach with tacky glue.
Roxie used our Perfect Layers 1/16″ and 1/8″ tools for the perfect layers on her card.

Trick or Treat:
Another background created with sponging. Once the sky colors were down I added the moon by punching a 1″ circle from scrap paper to create a mask and placed it on the panel and used the direct to paper technique and rubbed the ink pad onto the panel.
Next I stamped the images using the two inks as described in the witch card.
To get my ground area darker I masked off the sky and used the direct to paper technique.
Roxie used our Perfect Layers 1/16″ tool for the perfect layer on her card.

A Busy Halloween Night:
The cardstock used for the base has a white back so those partial bats aren’t really flying, just stamped on the insert!
I created the background with Ranger Distress Inks using the masking and sponging techniques.
I stamped the black silhouettes with StazOn and quickly cleaned the clear stamps which I also do with rubber and never need to use the more powerful cleaners.
The fence, bats and pumpkins are bookboard figures which is similar to chip board but not as thick. The fence is covered with Enamel EP – Vintage Black, the bats with detail EP – black and the pumpkins with enamel gels.
Roxie used our Perfect Layers Mini tools to cut the 1/16″ and 1/8″ layers.
